I've been playing around with some pics as I'm printing off photos for my 2008 Scrapbooking Masters entry. (Spare of the moment thing, decided to enter! Lots of work and not much time!!!)Here is a pic of my family, the most recent one taken at Christmas in Adelaide! My brother and his wife and children, with myself, Dave and kids and my Mum and stepdad! It turned out not too bad with the self timer set on my little compact digi! I love how everyone is looking and smiling, and we don't get to capture these moments very often, we aren't all together very often! Just wanted to share.
Had a go at a blind scrapping challenge with the Scrap Therapy team: www.scraptherapy.com.au on Wednesday evening, quite pleased with my result. Challenges go up on Sunday, so will post my Layout then!
School holidays start today, so we will be busy in this house and trying to get out, we have birthday parties, new babies to visit and lots more!
Oh yeah, news of the day, My husband has just had his first promotion at work to Leading Hand and he is very happy. There are a few disadvantages, like more travelling and longer hours, but he's happy and I'm happy for him, he deserves it!!!!!

I should be in bed, (I say that alot!) Trying to wind down after a big day doing Wedding Photos and then movie night with the kids who were full on tonight! Crawling all over me because they hadn't seen me since this morning! It's nice, but I was trying to breathe!!!
Last night I took them to Cairns to see a show:" Millie, Jack and the dancing cat". We have read the book a few times, and we don't often get to see shows, as it's such a big drive for them. Anyway, it was great and they really loved it! We went late night shopping afterwards and they were treated to junk food which they don't really like that much, but hey you get the toy with the happy meal!!!!! They were so good and stayed awake for the 1 hour trip home. It was 9.30pm and they were raring to go when we got in and saw Daddy!!! I am looking forward to a sleep in in the morning!
Last week I was busy evey night scrapping, I have so many ideas in my head and am jotting them down and drawing sketches, I can't keep up with myself at the moment. Just found out one of my girlfriends is coming to stay in July! Can't wait, she's in Adelaide, we grew up together! I have attatched my first A4 layout which was a challenge for the Aussiescrapjacked site: http://aussiescrapjack.blogspot.com/
I really enjoyed the smaller format and might try a few more!

I'm sitting here, it's nearly 1.00am, (Dave would kill me!), I just cannot go to bed/sleep. ,my body is so used to not going to bed early any more. I'm tired, but there is so much I want to do, but have had one of those days where nothing much was accomplished! My little man has been having some severe tantrems and the household has been a little shaken up this week!
We went to visit the natural therapies doc with Taylah today re: her adenoids. He has put her on a herb powder twice a day and told me to cut out milk products from her diet!! (Yeah right!) Anyway, if we at least cut down that will help he said, so we are trying to find her some relief until we see the specialist in Sept. If we make great progress, we wont even have to think about an operation! I don't want to go down that path with her if we can help it! Anyway have left a digi creation I just finished! I had to create something b4 going to bed, that's the issue now, I have to create something every day, which I think is fantastic, but my family, may beg to differ! At least they get to star in my creations!!!:) Have just discovered a new digi site called www.pickleberrypop.com

Well, I should be in bed, but have just been surfing around on the net, checking out a Cybercrop at one of the scrapping sites and thought, I should share a layout I finished today. This one is for my hubby who has never taken centre stage on a layout before, so it was time. I used the Kaiser range of Grunge papers and it's funny, I was in a bit of a dark mood when I started it, so the papers fitted that mood. Up until then, I have been going some bright colours! I'm glad I got this one finished.
Kids were hyper tonight after a run around at the park, then a family movie, I thought they would never go to sleep. Dave's now snoring on the couch and I feel like scrapping but I think I better call it a night!

It's a drizzly day in Port today, more rain?? All I want to do is curl up and go to sleep, but too much to be done, it's my day off from the kids and I must get moving. Jack is not sleeping any better, it's really taking it's toll, something has to give sooner or later. Two kids now that haven't been good sleepers, must be in their genes, Dave's not a great sleeper!!!!!
Anyway, I plan to get a bit accomplished today. I've left a pic of my latest card set for one of the challenges at LSBS www.littlescrapbookshop.com.au
My parents have just booked their flights to come here in Sept. while I go off to Tassie for the Aust. Photog. Convention, the kids are so excited.
I've had a huge load of inspiration and ideas floating around in my head for scrapping layouts, I wish I had all the time in the world to sit down and get them done. I've been drawing my own sketches, so at least they're on paper. I'm loving paint at the moment.
Family are all ok apart from runny noses, looking forward to the long weekend this weekend for some quality family time, may go away depending on the weather.
