I sat up until after midnight last night scrapping and it was simply freezing, but I wanted to complete a page and I didn't care that my toes were almost dropping off!! It is now 11.06pm tonight and I am still sitting here at this computer, but I scrapped another page!! DS Clinton has been complaining that I haven't done a page with him and his girlfriend, so here it is Wink (that's his pet name)
I really love how this turned out.......especially the colours!!!

Winter has arrived!!

Well winter certainly let us know what it is all about up here in Qld today!! We had rain, wind, hail and sleet!!! and the forecast is that it is going to get worse. What a joy that will be!! I have been having withdrawals because I haven't scrapped for over a week and I wasn't going to let the cold get the better of me. So what did I scrap........a pic of Matthew at the beach!!!

It's the Weekend!

After a long week at work (and very busy) I also had to work this morning. Seems like most of the weekend is gone and I have so much to do around the house.........LOL I scrapped tonight instead!!! This is my entry for the July sketch at Aussie Pub calls Roadmaps.

Just love love love these new flowers I found made by Prima. I wish I had bought more!

The lace across the bottom of the LO is actually lace tape by Christina Re! (very handy stuff)

Not much happening in my part of the world, might try scrapping again tomorrow if I get all my washing done!!!!!
PS: I also added some new songs to my fav's list here, hope you enjoy listening!!!!

A cold Saturday!

Haven't ventured outside much today as it has been drizzly and windy and COLD!! We really haven't had much cold weather up this way yet so it was to be expected. I was suppose to work to day to do stocktake, but my boss rang and said that they got most of it done yesterday, so I didn't have to come in..........YAY!! So I got stuck into the domestic duties (sort of anyway) and in between loads of washing and folding I manged to SCRAP!!! I completed this one for the July Challenge at http://whitewith1.blogspot.com/ This month it was to use mainly white with some black and a homemade embellishment. This is Erin's little feet in her Mummy's hand at 2 days old. I handmade the flowers from punched hearts, added some ink and gel pen and then covered them with dimesional magic. THanks for my good friend Colleen who taught me how to do them.

OOh and excitement, excitement........I won the June Challenge at White with 1!!!!!!!! I now have a $20 voucher to spend on scrapping supplies, which will be great as I haven't really gone shopping for a few months!!!!

Now, if there is anyone out there that actually reads my blog (I know it's not that exciting) please leave me a message, I love to see who has been visiting!!
