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

Aussie Dares Challenge

Happy Hump day everyone!!!!

This is my 'AUSSIE DARES' LO for this forthnight. You have to take your inspiration from a CD or Album cover. I used the cover of the Beatles album 'Let it be'. a fairly basic LO I know...and a bit of a challenge...I am so not good with clean and classic, but I do like the negative effect

These are few other LO's I did in the shop today

Well guys I am sorry I am not more chatty a bit of a hurry, have to feed the hungry hoard!!!!!

Thanks for having a lookie

Scrapbooking memories Vol 9 issue 6

Just quickly guys, I have updated my Pub's blog, I have my creative team challenge accent in this months was so exciting for me at the time. And the Lovey Lu has a LO in there, that is one of my favourites that she has ever done 'A Star in the making' I don't think it photographed as well as it looks in real life, it's much more sparkly and me an AMAZING LO. The amazing Lusi has a LO in there too.

big hugs

Happy Monday

How was everyones Weekend????

I had a quiet one. A minor mircle did occur though, all the clothes in my house were either being wore, or clean folded and put aways...TRUELY AMAZING!!!!! and the older boys and I cleaned out thier bedroom, and knock about an inch off the dust....gotta love boys!!!!

Anyhoo....this is my 'ALL ABOUT EVE' LO. It's supposed to be a LO on our Idol. Now don't get me wrong there are plenty of people and things I admire...just not idolise, so I figured I would put my own spin on it.

I think the older I get the more I hate money and the power it has. Weather you have it or you don't there seems to be this overwhemling controling infulence. To me there are soooo many more inportant things, and money is mearly a nessasary evil...just my opinion

I was in the shop today too...I so love sitting and scrapping in there, the Mojo seems to flow. Here's today's efforts

Well guys, thanks for having a lookie....and have a great week!!!!!!

Just quickly.....

I did this LO of Jilly GG's son Levi yesterday too, I just added a few stitches to it last front of the I

it's actually much better scanned terribly. I know alot of you ladies photograph your LO's, and this seems to get alot more detail and dimention. I have given it a go, but as you can see by my piss poor attempts with this weeks garbage challenges , I am not very good at it. If any of you can give me some tips I would really really appresiate it!!!!!!?????!!!!! how do you get it not to flash? do you put them on the floor and stand over them???....ANY help would be FANTASTIC!!!!!

Have a great saturday

One Little word Challenge

I am sooo quick of the mark this time. I did my LO for 'ONE LITTLE WORD' using the word 'delight'. This is offcourse the sometimes delightful, Lilyana and Caeligh. I happen to snap this pic on tuesday while they were playing in the back yard. I have actually got no idea what they are looking at...but it sure must be interesting

I also did this LO today in the shop

Well guys, me thinks that's it. I haven't had a very exciting week I am afraid...just busy as always. Scott has cricket tommorrow, so that sort of takes care of Saturday, and on Sunday I am hoping to get some christmas shopping done. Isn't it frighening how close it is???????????

Hope everyone has a FOBO weekend

Hugs and Kisses
