The SM Masters issue is out!!!!!

Firstly HUUUGGGEEEEEE CONGRATULATIONS to those who made masters and to all the other amazingly talented ladies that got HM's!!!!!! well done everyone

I thought I could post up my entries now that the issue is they are

This is my Single's on my #2DS Scott....I was really happy with it to be honest

This is the infamous 'Hazel'...she was lucky enough to recieve an Honorable mention...GO HAZEL.....LOL, anyways she is supposed to be my storage solution...she is currently sitting in the corner of my bedroom, doing what Hazel does best...sitting around looking pretty...I might bring her into the shop for a little while...if you want to see her IRL

This is My double...not good pictures I am afraid, but I think you get the general idea. I also got a HM for this. I did it on my elest son Kris, simply because when I first read the run down in the mag the double was to be on the most significant even in your life...and for me that was definatley becoming a mum, and all I could think was 'well's has to be you'

And this is my 'mini album'....I guess I stretched the rules a little here. It's an exploding box. '25 funky facts about me' is what I called it. Each one of those tags flip out and have a photo on one side and a 'fact' on the other. My Daddy helped me with the construction of was quite a feet of

Well that's them...I was happy with it all in the end, and again CONGRATS to the winners and the other HM' me, I guess theres always next year

Big hugs

One Little word Challendge....and a week of LO's

Well guys, I have had a really busy week. Been here, there and everywhere it seems. But anyways, I have taken a little minute to update my Blog

Heres my take on the OLW Challenge. The word is 'Live' and I have done the LO on my beautiful angel Mikayla. I swear not a days goes by that I don't think about her or miss her with the whole of my soul, to me she will never be dead...she my heart and my mind and my dreams.

So here is the others that I have done this week....a bit of mish mash of everything.

Today I am off to the shop for a couple of hours, and then heading down the Gold coast to spend a fortune of Kris's uniforms for next year...HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY.....NOT!!!!!

And we have a crop on this evening at Cyberscraps at least that will be fun

anyways, have a good one

All About Eve Challenge

All About Eve's Challenge for this Fortnight is
'Hindsight' and I suppose I may do a few little things differently if I had the power of hindsight, but honestly not much...I problably wouldn't have gotten a wee bit too drunk at Lu's hens night...or perhaps I would have not spent some of the money I needed right before those massive bills came in...but not much eles I think. I recon that it's better to look forward, not here's my LO

I also did these others in the shop yesterday. My first one from the wedding pics...anit my girl beautiful!!!!????!!!!!

And this is my Newphew Toby, we had a bit of a photo shoot on is this kid GORGEOUS!!!!! Love him to bits. Really I wanted to call the LO 'This kids got Chunk' cos his is a bit of a budda...too darn cute though for that

Thanks for popping by in my little world....I would love to know who comes by, so a comment would be really cool......Wink, Wink Wink!!!!!

Hugs and Kisses

Weddings, Parties....EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PHEWWWWWWWWWWWWWW What a Weekend!!!!!!! The retreat was UNREAL!!!! so much fun and frolicking, oh yeah and some scrapping too!!!! The ladies that came to the first CYBERSCRAPS retreat are honestly some of the nicest, most amazing women you are ever likely to meet...LOVE YA's ALL!!!!!!!!

The food was to die for, Maggie is just so talented, the company was great, and I just had a fantastic time.

This pic was taken on the Sunday afternoon, just before our beloved Jodi had to head back to the her Ledgendary Stu, and Kerrie was head off too. So if we all look a little worse for wear please take into consideration that it is the day after the night before...Lu's hen's maybe it's just me that looks crappy...The others look great!!!!!

The New CI stuff arrived in the shop on Friday...and WOOOOWEEEEEEE it is just to DIE for stickers and the most amazing papers...check it out, I actually got a LO done....after the feeding frenze

Here a few other I got done too..............

Now I may be a bit absent for the next few Days, Lu's wedding is on Sunday and there is SOOOOO much to do!!!!! I am really looking forward to it, but alot of last minute things need attention.

The AMAZING FABULOSE UNBELIVEABLE LUSI AUSTIN is coming up too, so can't wait to see her.

Well ladies Lu has just arrived, so I am off...

Quick update.......

Hey Guys!!! My busy week continues on....but I just thought I would quickly share what I have been up to.

These photo frames were given to me by a lovely friend Sharon. Ofcourse they were really nice in thier own right...but I couldn't leave them like that. I got Kelly to screw some eye hooks into the frames and chained them all together. I have it hanging in my bedroom. The 'Four good reasons' title came about , not really from any sort of sentimentality, just because I see it when I wake up in the morning...and I hate getting out of bed, so I figured I needed a reason to...well I am 'lucky' enough to have Four, and If I don't get out of bed, they will surely distroy the house!!!! Covered the frames in Buzz and Bloom chipboard.

Oh and I did this LO a while ago for the 'green Tara' competion, and sent it away before I had a chance to send it...I liked it though

Well guys, I am off to a busy weekend of fun and frolicking...will let you know how Lu's Hen's night goes...ofcourse I will be bringing my camera...have a few surprises planned for her....nudge nudge wink wink

Have a good one

some days.......

You know, most of the time I simple trundle through life, going from one day to the next, same old same old...nothing much happens, then POW!!!!!!! I am so incedible busy the world feels like it is in free fall!!!!!!
I had a bit of a light bulb moment this morning...OMG OMG OMG there is SOOOO much I need to do, so many thimgs to organise, so many places I have to be!!!!!

I thought I would write myself a little list...and perhaps start marking things on the's getting silly, I I simple can't remeber everything.

I'll start at the beginning.
1- Lu has her wedding in justless than 2 falls on a Sunday, that sunday is also the night of Lily's first Ballent concert. My mum is taking her to it, but She has a dress rehersal this monday, and on the saturday before the wedding she has a full dress rehersal, and her breakup /christmas party...full on day!!!!!. I still have go and buy her new stocking and shoes for it all, plus hair stuff (don't forget that Cass...derr)
2- this weekend CYBERSCRAPS is having it's first retreat and a few lovely ladies from down south and such are looking forward to it. because the Saturday night Lu and I will be there, it was decided that it would be a great opportunity for a hens, should be fun...I STILL have stuff to organise for that.
3- Kris and Scott will be recieveing academic awards this year and the presentation night in Wednesday...THATS TOMMORROW!!!!!! completely forgot, and hense forgot to hand back in the forms, so I will have to ring the school today and see what I can do!!!
4- Scott has an excursion to Seaworld on friday...lucky he reminded me that the form had to go back today!!!!!!
5- As some of you will know it has been raining on and off in Brisbane for the last couple of weeks. Most people would be thankful for this, and If Kelly wasn't a painter I probably would be too. But he is a Painter, and currently a Painter with ONLY outside work!!! ARGHHHHHHHH no get?????

(please rain, I know we need the water, but Please please please go away and rain in the catchments or something...even if you leave just a little pocket of sunshine out here in the burbs I would be forever grateful!!!!)

Anyway as a consequence of said rain...there is much financial juggling going on...I so HATE money!!!!

6- Someone said to me in the shop the other day that Christmas is only 5 WEEKS away....ARGHHHHHHHHHHHH (I am totally screaming in horror!!!!)...needless to say I am so not organised for that.

Well I am so sure there is more..but as per ussal I can't think of any right now, I am sure it will come to me when I try and go to sleep tonight as all things do...great

Anyway I did have a quiet day in the shop a few LO's got done

Thanks for having a read..and a lookie....if you got this far
