try again...

 Last friday night Karen and I had a scrapping night,
Just a few hours at her place, we went into her scraproom, left the kids with their fathers and shut the door lol... We had a few drinks, lots of laughs, finished a few pages, and didnt spill anything.. A very successful night lol..!

So these are the pages I finished, all of which I put up on the Purple Pumpkin blog on Sunday..

Rewards system

We have started working on a rewards system at home for jed and his reading. He is to read all of one small book or part of a big book each weekday to get a stamp on his chart which is now stuck to the front of the pantry lol. He has struggled with reading from the start so I am hoping the rewards system gets results. Tonight he read one of zayne's new spot books, with help from me. It took him just over 30 minutes...

* post for my own records :)

October 15th... STUCK?!

Mid month sketch at STUCK?! sketches...
I have changed it up again, removing hte top circle all together, and swapping the bottom circle for a butterfly..
I scrapped another selfie of me and Mark..
13 years together and we have hardly any piccies of the 2 of us.

Love that cute litte Purple Pumpkin button sneaking in there under the butterfly ♥

The sideways PP was entirely unintentional lol,
I was talking on the phone when I cut it, not paying attention, but I kind of like how it turned out!

the same, but different...

These layouts have all been created for challenges,
and have turned out quite similar in style lol.
I made myself the spotty mask and have used it often!

First up Scrap the Boys...
Challenge was to use a handmade embellishment.
I have used one of Charms lollipops, as well as a Purple Pumpkin button!
 Next up Scrap the Girls..
Challenge was to use 'love' in the title, and distressing.
I had forgotten the distressing part, lucky I always do that anyway lol.
 Lastly is White with ONE..
The challenge for this one was WHITE + BLACK + PAINT/MIST
I have obviously used paint.
The photo of this layout really doesnt do it justice, I actually think it is one of my all time faves!
I have done a few other pages recently too,
which I may share at another time..

Have a great weekend all!!


STARTING AT 7.30PM (qld time)
They sell out FAST,
if you want anything be there AT 7.30!

Just a nothing post really... I need to schedule a blog post and have never done it before, so this is just to test if it works lol.

I have just upgraded to a newer version of internet explorer and it wont let me type from the middle :( How annoying, I dont like typing from the edge lol....

Anyway, just because I can, here is a piccy of my gorgeous little sister ♥...

At the beginning of the year I decided to do the one family photo a month,

for a year thing.

Well, honestly that turned out to be an epic fail.

(I hate the word epic btw, but it just seemed to fit lol)

SOOOOO.... Maybe I will try again.

We went away to Bermagui for the weekend,

and I made sure I was in SOME pics.

I hate pics of me, with an absolute passion, but looking back on photo's from previous holidays you would almost think we were a family of FOUR, not five.

This photo was taken with my camera by Sheri,

at Horseshoe Bay.

I am blogging these from my phone, so I have no idea if it will work or not lol.
We are in bermi, although it was forecast to rain all weekend the weather yesterday afternoon was fantastic. We went out for lunch then headed to the blue pools for a wander and the kids stuck their feet in (and me lol) it was FREEZING!! zayne stripped and got in to his little boobies :( we then headed to the beach and the kids got all wet, imagine that lol. Then to belinda's for tea <3

Just a few pics, taken with my phone.. I have no idea where they will be on the page lol. My new fave pic, the one of me playing in the water with the kids!! <3

Sheri took the 2 ocean ones, the other is my boys standing at the end of one of the main wharfs, there weren't many boats in.
