Productive Week!!!

OK, first up is my submission for week 4 in Project Scrapaway at Scrapchat. Check out all the talented work here. I am having so much fun with this challenge! If you are a member at Scrapchat, I'd love your votes for the bonus points. If you're not a member sign up and vote for me anyway! LOL

And now we have 3 LOs from the Thursday night CC over at Scrapbooking Memories. I had fun, but it was very strange having a CC in the middle of the week, and only having a very very short time to scrap and upload.

Challenge using a title with the words I AM, a transparancy and stitching. I guess I didn't use too much else! LOL

A challenge where you had to choose at least 7 of these 8 options... Stitching, paint, punches, flowers, butterflies, eyelets, 2 or more photos, 3 patterned papers. I left out the eyelets as I was doing it at night after everyone else was in bed...

And this one had to have only 2 colours, a black and white photo, and something from around the house that wasn't a "normal" scrap item. I used a jar opener from the 2nd draw in the kitchen.

And for the CC at Stampshack I have so far created these...

A LO that uses a chipboard shape, different lettering in the title, and kindiglitz...

A LO that is a strange shape and inludes stitching and felt on it...

And then there are things that I have done for the fun of it. A LO of Ryan using a Photo Caitie took that I reckon is gorgeous. I played with it in Photoshop and had it printed a while ago and have been waiting to scrap it...

A LO of Elizabeth with a photo ALSO taken by Caitlin. She's taken some beautiful photos lately, and they are so much fun to scrap with.

And finally I have scrapped the photo Witchy gave me of all the girls together at Pammy's place in July. This LO uses things that have been given to me by my beautiful online friends. Thank you to all you lovely women. Your friendship and generosity mean so much to me.

And I got out of the house and went to a really great park over at Long Jetty with a friend from mother's group. Her daughter is just too cute and loved playing up to the camera. I couldn't resist doing a digital LO about her. I actually got to play with some of the funky Rhonna Farrer stuff Mel from Point Shoot Play sent me as a prize. Such great things to use!

Poor Matt, he had a flu/cold bug last week and he just about lost his voice and was home from work on Thursday, and this weekend he's got the tummy bug that poor Caitie and Elizabeth both had earlier this week. So he has been in bed most of the weekend. Either that or on the toilet.

And now Phillip's getting the bug. His burps smell absolutely DISGUSTING!

OK, I guess that's enough from me. Hope you guys have had a great weekend...

Little Hair LO

I love digi scrapping. No waiting for photos to be developed, no stressing about getting things right before you stick it down...

This is a LO I did to commemorate Lilli's first haircut (and the cute way she calls it "little hair"). It's using a kit by Andrea Whitt called "Flower Patch". The colours are so cool!

I want you guys to know that I love the comments you leave on my blog and want to apologise profusely for being a slack commenter. So I'm making a deal. If you leave me a comment for the rest of the month, I WILL come and comment on your blog too. However many comments you leave for me I'll leave on your blog!

Oops, the LO!

OK, I TOLD you I had a LO!

It's for the 3rd challenge for project scrapaway over at Scrapchat. We had to use a choice of colours from aqua, lime chreen, bright orange and hot pink, plus some doodling. Love the colours!

I'd love for you to come and check out the other entries here. You don't have to sign up to the gallery and guests can even leave comments, so come by and support us all!

And look at my "little" girl with her "little" hair. I finally decided to cut her hair! She's been asking me ever since I mistakenly told her one day while she was complaining about the knots, that I could cut it all off instead. And so since then she's been asking me to cut her hair. and then my mum got her little dog clipped and Elizabeth thought it was sooo cool to have "little" Coco, and asked me if she could have "little" hair. So finally I gave in.

She keeps looking at herself in mirrors, and even in the reflections in windows. She thinks it is so cool!

Elizabeth's input and some photos PLUS a LO!




OK, now I have got Elizabeth away from the keyboard I can say MY bit!

We were so slack this month with Philli's monthly photo, but he's fitting so well in his size 0 outfit now! By the time he's one it'll look pretty funny!

Took some of the kids together too. How hard is it taking photos of 2 kids together? They just won't sit still!!!

And Philli decided it'd be a great time to learn how to pull himself up! How proud of himself does he look?

Un-packing is continuing here. It's making me a bit of a grumpy bum though! I just want it all done now and I want it all done properly and that is taking time. I'm sure I'll get over tis little mini-meltdown. I just have to look at the positives! Just think about what I was like a few weeks ago! Un-packing is really only a small worry!!!

OK, I'd better go make a quick lunch for my kidlets!

My mummy has a blog!

My mummy now has her very own blog!

She's only JUST started it (about 20 minutes ago...) so she's having fun adding all the bits and pieces to it she wants.

Have a look and let her know what you think!

New house!

We have finally moved, and now the house seems to be swimming in boxes. Boxes and MORE boxes!

Why have we accumulated so much stuff??

Working on some more freebies, so will let you guys know when they're done.

As I am such a slack blogger I'm guessing I won't be back before the weekend, so have a great weekend everyone.

We're moving!

Last minute packing is underway - all our clothes are in bags, the pantry is all cleared, we're MOVING!

I put together a box for Elizabeth to play with. I was expecting her to climb in it, and "play" with it. Her form of playing was to pack her books.........

OK, I'd better get back to packing and getting ready to go sign the lease...

Welocme to the weekend

Aren't we such a cute couple? LOL. I'm trying to get some photos of the 2 of us together instead of just the kids... Elizabeth and Phillip are cute and I love taking photos of them, but it's kind-of sad when you look through all the photos for the month and see none of yourself or your husband!

We have been busy packing as much stuff as possible before we move. Trying to minimise the amount we have to pack at the last minute. There's still heaps to go though! We have been so bad the last few weeks and haven't been to church. It actually got to that stage where they sent the church bulletin to us as we hadn't been! LOL With heaps of stuff happening on the weekends we have been taking the time to sleep in and have some family time. I love Saturday and Sunday mornings when we spend time together playing on the bed. Elizabeth loves to jump on the bed and Phillip likes to pull hair!

Because of the packing Elizabeth and Phillip have been entertaining themselves a bit more that usual. With some funny results...

Phillip fell asleep on the floor!

Elizabeth helped out by bringing toys for her little brother to play with. I don't think he appreciated it too much!

They both got into the newspaper we've been using. They had fun scrunching and throwing it everywhere. Both of them got pretty filthy though - newsprint rubs off on everything!

I finished my second week challenge for Project Scrapaway over at Scrapchat. We had to use at least one photo, have a title, use sewing, hide the journalling and scrap about an important past event. I was the first to upload! YAY!

If you'd like to see the other entries you can do so HERE. There are some pretty awesome scrappers taking part!

Anyway, I'm off to move some cupboards downstairs. Have a great weekend everyone!
