Happy EGGster.

Eggcellent!!!
Early start this morning. Kids are always super keen to get up and outside to hunt for eggs and the fluffy one sure left a load of choclatey goodness in our garden and garage (dogs in back yard).
Last year Benny (spaniel) sniffed Sidney's chocolate stash out. We thought we might have to have his stomach pumped but he was fine.
 All the kids slept in the one bedroom...love how they do that. Happens every Easter & Christmas Eve...they spend the night watching movies and being together.
Sadly we are having our first Easter without Rhys under our wing....but we talked to him last night and he told me to send his chocolate in the post....yeah! right son...!

Now for a few pics and my latest layout which I did for The colour room....



Ready to HUNT





Awake and ready to roll
Hunting done now time for Daddy to sort the EGGS evenly

ACTION stations......GO!


Now for scrappin

This weeks palette over at The colour room



And this is what I came up with.......

.....having fun with crafters workshop templates atm.




Roy has had to work today so that's a bit of a bummer...*(that's why I'm doing this post).
Hope Alex and Ashlea can make it over for Dinner....
O.k better go and vac the floor ( I know super fun!!) for easter..but those egg wrappers really get on my goat...grrr! I'm sure you know what I mean.


Cheers and happy scrapping or photo taking.

My Scrappy Space (oh yeah! and study space....cough!!)

As my Daddy dearest is all mended after his hip replacement, well, well on his way, he decided to head back to his little farm  in country QLD. So I have taken back our 5th bedroom and I finally have my Scrappy/study room. This smallish room has great natural light....





Hey! it's a work in progress.....all seems pretty organised at present.....won't stay like this for long!

Weather looks a little nicer here today. Samantha and I are planning on walking/jogging to the gym,(it is roughly 3-4km away), doing a workout then walking/jogging home again...well that's the plan anyways???




Thanks for stopping by and we will see you again real soon.

KIU April Challenge.

Hello there sweet people!
spent the last few days on this layout which is very dear to my heart. Decide to use this months challenge over at Kraft It Up

http://www.kraftitup.blogspot.com/


In March I lost a dear friend to Ovarian cancer. She only turned 40 last June and was a mother to 5 children and a grandmother to Noah.

The loss of Lisa has rocked my world and made me think and scrap on a different, more heart felt level.


Now to the layout.
I made my own transparencies for this layout and now I'm hooked on them......so much fun and so easy to make. The usual lots of stitching. Also got the darling little tags from a local craft shop and find them truly yummy.







     The journaling on this layout is what I wrote and read out at her service, so the title relates back to that time. Sorry about the quality of the pics as it is a very overcast day here in Orange, think we are headed for a top of around 13......Brrr!
Thanx for stopping by and hope you are having a great week.

Now I'm off to the gym to do a POWER class.....argh! feel the BURN.....lol!

Be back later with a few pic's of my scrappy creating space....Yep! I got my Study/scrap room yippee!!


BYE for now..

Inspirational Challenge #6 (March)

Hi Ladies just finished a layout for Get Picky challenge....Inspiration....below.n


A couple of days ago I found a photograph of my darling baby brother, Shane with his newborn son, Oliver.

I SO Love this shot of them together.....it just melts my heart every time I look at it.

I love it to bits...I was sent this pic in an email so I couldn't really lighten it/ I don't know how to. I tried taking a photo of this photo and using my software but it didn't make alot of diffence....so just went with it.




Ohhh! how beautiful.....


Butterflies are just soooo in right now!!!


Love these stamps...yummm!

So good to get that photo scrapped
Hope Shane and Stacey like it?
(love you!)

Busy day tomorrow...easter hat parade...High school parent/teacher interviews....(Mason has had two letters home in the last week????  that boy is the reason I have to colour my hair.....grrr!)

Anyway scrappy friends
hope your week is moving along smoothly
