My baby is famous!

I got a message from the gorgeous Lucy last night telling me to have a look on Scrapchat - there was a message I might be interested in on there.

When I had a look, this is what I found...

My Phillip baby is famous! And obviously some people out there think he's cute! LOL

So a BIG thanks to all who voted for him. I can't wait to see what the prize is. The website says he'll be getting $250 worth of Little Tikes toys. How cool is that?

I haven't got the magazine myself yet, but guess what is at the top of today's to do list?

Actually, maybe I should write my to do list here so I have something to remind me of what I SHOULD be doing...

Buy Practical Parenting to look at my famous little boy
Keep going on my DT Album Kit for Tan @ Scrap N Craft With T
Complete second Guest DT LO for Tan as well
Start my mini album swap
Finish mini album I'm creating as a fraffle for The Fun Stop
Clean my computer desk
Vaccuum upstairs
Sort out all the clothes on the floor in our bedroom
Send Fluffy the Toy Voyager on to her owner in Austria
Check Battrick for updates on my payers
Buy Dead Ant to get rid of the millions of the tiny little blighters that are taking over my kitchen
Decorate my noodle box for the Warana trip
Put together LO kits to take with me to Warana

But right now at the top of the list is to change Phillip's bum because he is REALLY STINKY!

Lilli's Birthday Party

My little baby girl is now 3. She had a great day on Sunday at The Entrance. If only everyone else hadn't decided it was a great day to go out... We might have gotten a table and avoided the crunchy bits of dirt in our food! Other than the dirt, things went fairly smoothly and the best part of all is Elizabeth wanted to do it again the next day, so she obviously had fun!

Opening presents (with daddy in the background cutting up the bread stick):

More presents (and a bit of posing!):

The birthday cake. We couldn't light the candle, but she didn't seem to miss it!

The best of a bad lot of family photos we took while we were playing at the water fountain:

Hope you all had a great weekend. Ours was tiring but it was fun!

My baby

My baby isn't my baby any more. She's THREE! I cannot believe how big and old and grown up she's getting. We're having a picnic at The Entrance for her birthday, with lots of yummy food. I'm sure she'll love it. I'll be back with some photos to share...

I could be RICH!

From The Desk Of
Mr. Amal O. Ahmed.
National Bank of Dubai.Shaikh Humaid Street,
AjmanUnited Arab Emirates (U.A.E.)
Dear Friend,

I am sincerely sorry for bugging into your privacy, its due to a business deal in my bank of which I require your kind and honest assistance. Please let this massage not be a surprise to you because I got your information and lay trust in you before I contacted you; believing that you are in the position to assist me. My name is Mr. Amal O. Ahmed, the Branch Manager, National Bank of Dubai (Ajman Branch). I have an urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.

An American Iraqi Foreign Oil Consultant/Contractor with theChevron Petroleum Corporation Company Late Mr. Thomas Stone Made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$12,000,000.00 (Twelve Million United State Dollars in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply,after a month we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, Iraqi Foreign Oil consultant Chevron Petroleum Corporation Company that Mr. Thomas Stonedied in a plane crash in Egypt Air Flight 990, 1999 air crash.

For more information about this crash and person you can contact this website:**********

Since we got this information about his death and on further investigation I found out that he died without making a WILL and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Thomas Stone did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my bank.

This sum of US$12,000,000.00 is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will ever come forward to claim it. According to Laws of United Arab Emirates,at the expiration of 9 (nine) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the(U.A.E) Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.
Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Thomas Stone so that the fruits of this old man's labour will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials This is simple,I will like you to provide immediately your full names and address so that the attorneywill prepare the necessary documents and affidavits that will put you in place as the next of kin. We shall employ the services of an attorney for drafting and notarization of the WILL and to obtain the necessary documents and letter of probate administration in your favour for the transfer.

A bank account in any part of the world that you will provide will then facilitate the transferof this money to you as the beneficiary/next of kin. The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 60% for meand 40% for you. There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transactionwill be done by the attorney and my position as the Branch Manager guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please reply immediately via the private email address above. Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant documents that will help you understand the transaction. Please send me your confidential telephone and fax numbers for easy communication.Please observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistanceto invest my share in your country.

Awaiting your urgent reply via my confidential email address:**********

My Best Regards,

Mr. Amal O. Ahmed.
NBD, Ajman.

Random stuff

Well, another week of Project Scrapaway is completed. I am really loving this challenge! Sadly I am no longer tying for the win, but I will be continuing to upload as quickly as possible! I SO want to win the graphics tablet. matt has said that if I don't win it, when his grandad's probate comes through he'll get me one as a special pressie. How nice!

This week's challenge was inspired by spring weddings...

Use white as a base
Only use one other colour
Have black included
Have 1 photo
Use lots of flowers like a bouquet
Use lots of bling and pearls
And as a bonus if you use tulle you got 2 extra points...

I figure I'm having a bright and funky wedding with fuschia bridesmaids and a maid of honour wearing a sexy little black dress! LOL

This is in response to the sketch challenge over at Scrapbooking Memories. My 2 gorgeous kidlets. I reckon they're just about the cutest things ever. But then I'm thier mummy and I am biased...

And I had forgotten to upload the LO I got published in Scrapbooking Memories a few months ago! A little sad that my only publication is of Matt's cars... Ah well, I'll keep trying to get the kids and possibly myself in there at some stage.

And I'm getting set for Christmas! I'm planning on making (simple) cards for close friends and family this year. And so I've done some editing on my favourite picture of the terrible two at the moment. I'm getting them printed and that makes cards a lot easier this year! LOL!

Playing around with the camera the other day - took this nice bright picture of Lilli's lei in the back yard. Tried taking some pictures of Elizabeth herself out there, but she was way more interested in playing with the rocks than looking at the camera...

So yeah, some pretty random things for this update. I'm off to the post office to send off some lollies and some toy voyagers to their new homes. Australia post must love me at times! LOL

Have a great week...

More self portraits! LOL

Been having a play with more of the photos I took (I took a LOT! Hoping ONE of them worked the way I wanted to!

I actually am starting to like photos of myself! What a strange phenomenon...

Playing with self-portraits...

Well, it was revealed this morning that one of the warana challenges at Scrapchat is going to be using a self-portrait. So I got snap happy this monring and had some "fun" taking photos of myself. I hate photos of me! I guess I always will. I'm so used to seeing myself in a mirror that when I see pictures of myself from a camera I think they're fugly!!!

So here are the results of some of my photographing (and editing! LOL)

There are a couple there that aren't too bad. Hopefully one will fit the challenge well! Let me know which one is your favourite - maybe you guys can help me choose! LOL

Hello again

I have had an interesting few days. Poor sick husbands and kids. I'm the only one who's escaped so far! Of course I said "so far", I'm just waiting now...
I've been having some fun with my digi work too. Ilove this one of Elizabeth, but SM disagree! lololol

Actually, SM have been disagreeing with heaps of my LOs lately! HAHAHA - lots of rejection emails coming my way. I'm glad I've got thick skin, but I can see why so many people get discouraged.
I'm off to the dentist AGAIN today. I am getting really really sick of sitting there on a chair while they poke and prod and burn my gum. Hopefully it'll all be over soon enough and I'll actually be able to eat properly for once! It's been a while!
