Monkey off his back!

Morning beautiful people,

So school holidays are here in NSW and my plans are simple...plenty of park play for the younger kids and hopefully plenty of scrapping for me and working out....the muffin top is back and I really want it gone by summer...grrr! winter you are so unkind on many levels...

   Meanwhile in hubbyland.....

   Roy and the two eldest sons (Alex,21 and Rhys 19), are on the adventure of a lifetime. They are riding mountain bikes across Australia...YES!
 They are riding some 3500 kms across our great land...
Their journey began in Narromine, NSW on Sunday 25th September.
The Plan: to ride at least 175 kms per day for 3 weeks.

 When I first met Roy back in 1988 he had dreams of doing this journey, but hey I sort of came onto the scene and .....cough!....cough!.....8 children happened.
 He has had some experience with long distance bike rides.....riding from Sydney to Melbourne the year we met. It's so fabulous that Alex and Rhys have joined him for his (monkey off his back), mammoth ride.

Roy, Alex and Rhys

Two of the bikes fitted with homemade trailers for the great distances they need to travel, with fresh water needing to be carried .

And away they GO!!!
My biggest worry, TRUCKS and snakes....hmmm (just don't think about it Kim??)
 Now I have been scrapping quite a bit but I just can't share at the mow....

So sorry but I will so share as soon as I can...

Oh Yeah!
 All Royal Subjects of CRAFTQUEEN should so be excited for October.....hehehe!

I shall inform you all in due course of a very special ROYAL celebration in the next few days....Way exciting let me tell YOU!!!!
Have to go, the gym is calling my muscles to workout...and feel the BURN.
Keep Happy and Scrappy

Good Stuff

 Hello..hello, wow it's been a busy week.

School performance "The Week That Was", for Sidney and McKenzie...they did so well McKenzie was the narrator for the first act..Possum Magic, he almost made me cry...just so cute and gorgeous....and made my chest puff-up...(so proud!)
 Sidney's performance was also excellent...she's a born actress I tell you..
It was without doubt one of the best infant/primary productions I've been to.

I have been creating but I can only show you a few sneaks at this stage...

Some little rose buds made from Satin Seam Binding from Craftqueen .

Some layers and beautiful paper flowers & MME pp.

 Reporter- Gertrude Goes (Sidney)

And a card I made with some handmade flowers using MME pp-Sunshine, which is totally awesome.
I love...love...love twine at the moment and love this colour of Satin Seam Binding..sigh...big love and how awesome is that CRAFTQUEEN butterfly (gorgeous)!!!
         Thanks for stopping bye, hope you have a very awesome weekend, whatever you have planned

Keep Happy

and Satin Seam Binding is pretty darn good to work with...and the colours it comes in are just plain....awesome
 Pop over to Craftqueen and look through Nicole's awesome range of great products.

  Bit excited about having a layout in this months Scrapbooking Memories Mag.
So many scrappy friends in one place and was sooo Happy to have my layout put next to such talent as Cathy Cafun.... still pinching myself.

My way talented daughter Madison (13), has been doing a bit of drawing of late so thought I'd show you her latest...

It's a beautiful day...sun is shining so we are heading off to one of our local parks and meeting up with Kaila, Emily, Roxanne, Akasha, Gemma and Charlie...get the kids out in the fresh air...think I'll take the Nikon and get some pic's.

September {Yay! Spring} -Scrap That Song Challenge.

  Well, finally September and Spring (for us aussie's), is here...Yippieee!
Such a beautiful time of the year....der! Kim...

 Few exciting things are happening for me and my family....My hubby and my two eldest sons are taking off on an epic adventure...one could even say mammoth!!!!
    Shall tell you more about it in the next few weeks.   (alot of people think he's nuts, but I think he is adventurous...not crazy!!!!).

   Now onto scrappiness matters, over at Scrap that Song the new songs for September are up....and might I say what a mix,   September Songs  pop over and have a sticky.
 Great mix of old and new, some true classic's.

 I decided to go for one that I'm not sure many of you would have heard that is unless you use to watch Scrubbs....???
 My older children loved the show, they brought all the seasons....my song is from the final episode

 It is called
                   The Book of Love  by Peter Gabriel
The lyrics
 "I Love it when you read to me"
I just love...pictured all the stories Roy and I have read to our children over the last 21 years...all those special cuddley moments as they snuggle in and drift off to sleep...and they still do....well the younger two anyways.

{Love it when you read to me}
Used the yummy 6x6 C/W houndstooth template and texture paste, made another homemade flourish. Used some Scrapmatts small gears. Trim, buttons, alpha stickers from CRAFTQUEEN 

{Bit of a closie}
 With a bit of spare time I decided to do a layout for Annette's chosen song SUNSHINE ON MY SHOULDERS.....such a beautiful song oh! I so love John Denver's voice...truly gorgeous!!! [great song choice Miss A].
[Sunshine On My Shoulders]
I thought the pic's were just made for this layout. Hugo was such a cutie with his curly locks....sigh!

Again I used fabulous supplies from CRAFTQUEEN
(The buttons, Authentique pp (yum!), prima stamp and those pretty little white flowers.) The corri alpha's I actually brought up in Brissie at expo, I wish I had of got more than just one pkt...grr!
My silly sewing machine was being a bit spazzy but I thought I would use it to my advantage for the outer boarder...(most likely 'cause i had two different thickness cottons...doh!)

Ok better head off now and start my day hope you have enjoyed your stop over...Please leave a little loving as it so makes my day a little brighter.

Until next time
keep it real
