Crop night layouts...

I went to a crop night at Karen's
on saturday night.
I done these 4 pages while I was there
(or started them at least)
That's a big effort for me who usually does nothing but chat lol.
LOVE this first one,
it's now my new favourite GIRL layout!
and this one is my new fave BOY layout!!
Both done with some recent favourite photo's.. :)
(printed with my new printer YAY.. love them)
Oh, and the mesh in the back is NOT part of my layouts,
just the background of where i photograph them..


Only my favourite left,
strange the way it works huh...

Nasty Weather...

Going on at Mum's today..
They have had no power for the majority of the day,
and aren't expected to get it back until
sometime tomorrow or even tuesday!!
Poor Tiff is going to be STARVING by then....
They have tree's down all over the place
with all the massive wind (up to 120kph i think),
not sure if there is flooding or not yet...
I have my fingers crossed that it dissapears very soon!!

Will you be....

A girl peanut,
or a blue peanut??

Tegan when you get your pics done you will have to make sure

Could have just been the lighting though?

was just wishing this morning that it would rain.

Felt like scrapping today,
but didn't lol.
Was a nice afternoon to be outside,
so I grabbed my camera and got some pics
of the kids...
These are just a few of my Faves!
This girls has gorgeous eyes..
LOVE them,
and they come up so nicely in pics.. :)
My skater boi's lol..
(without the skateboards LMAO)
Little cutie.
Oh, how I wish he could stand still,
and smile for the camera..
Don't know what it is about this one,
but I just LOVE it!
(tani climbing the fence to retrieve the ball from next door)
ohhhh I {heart} the chubbiness...
Those hands....
Oh how much does that look like cuddles???
I'm fairly certain it wasn't lol.
{sigh.......} I adore this boy!
What can I say??
There is NOTHING more gorgeous
than a denim bum... :D
{absolute cuteness}

Some more scrappy pages to show!
Don't know how much more I will get done though,
I cleaned up my desk last night.
Think I stuffed up the creativeness by doing that!!
First up is Bon's colour challenge,
for the May CC..
Colours were to be pink, cream, white and black.
also use no title, newspaper, and the quote by Bon.
Just a big photo layout.
Got a new printer,
and I am soooo happy with it.
Sketch challenge by Sandie,
had to use the sketch,
Banner, sewing, script paper and flowers.
This was such a quick one to do,
threw most of it together in about 30 mins
before I went to work yesterday
then finished it off last night.
Love quick ones :)
Lastly, this one was just because I printed
a test 6x4 pic off my printer
so I thought I better use it!

Happy Birthday!!!

My big NINE year old boy...
OMG how those years have just flown by!
It's a tough life when you
have to get tonsilitis to get a day
off school on your birthday though..

He got lots of cool pressies,
some awesome clothes,
(that he is going to recycle tomorrow, he he)
a CD player and a CD,
a pirateology book,
some bakugan,
some lego,
i think that was it...
and he got money from craig and tegan,
and karen, matt, chris and james..
Pic below is him blowing out the candles on his "cake"
went with cupcakes so he didnt spread his germs lol.

Lovin' it!!

Sitting here listening to my brand new Alan Jackson CD..
lol can't even begin to think how many YEARS it has been
since I brought a CD.....
OH my poor Jed,
went to bed before 7.30pm tonight..
He is sooo sick,
the poor thing.. :(

My poor boy..

has gotten tonsilitis for his birthday..
After only 3 days back at school after
having time off from his busted toe and our holiday,
he is now off again.
Tomorrow is his 9th birthday...
I am so sad for him,
nobody wants to be sick on their birthday!
In other news HOPING our new hot water system
will be here and installed tomorrow too.
No hot water for over a week
is doing my head in... :(

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

I am SO glad...

that I live in the 21st century...
and now understand why cavemen were so dirty LMAO!
We have had no hot water
for a week now..
(except for on the weekend for some reason....??)
Just seems to be stuffed,
and it looks like we will have to get a new one. :(
It takes HOURS to boil enough water
for baths each night,
and dishes etc... and what a crappy time for it to happen,
when it is getting so COLD.
Really makes me think how many mod cons
we all have these days that we just take for granted.
and how easy the bloody things break...

From yesterday...

The pics I took with my new lens yesterday were really crappy...
These were a few of my faves from them though.

Happy Mothers Day!!!

To all the lovely Mum's out there....
Love this pic Mark took of me and the kids this afternoon..
Wish I had PS to crop it with though.
Had a good day,
Bacon and eggs for brekky,
out to chinese for lunch.... yummmm.
Then a play at the park for the kids while I tested
my new 50mm lens out.
(My pics were mostly shite lol,
I will put up a few later on..)
Nan and Pop turned up down at the park
so we came back home for a cuppa and some cake,
then Mark, Zayne and I watched a movie..
(All about Steve, it was a bit silly lol)
Now Mark is making wraps for dinner,
at almost 7.30pm....

We have been

playing Whoopee Cushion!!
He is a little bit usure whether he should laugh or be disgusted!
But he still keeps coming back for more.
First I had to sit on it,
about 15 times,
then he wanted a go!
Love his smile and the way he says "yuck" everytime.
So cute!

Mark made me take a photo of them lol,

April 11th

We went out for dinner on the 10th of april,
and Mark won $100 in a raffle!!
So he took us to Bargara Berries for brunch,
which ended up being lunch coz we were so full!
These were what I had,
the pancakes, strawberries and cream were delicious.
The ice- cream on the other hand,
tasted like shite lol. It was soooo gross!
and my iced coffee *roll eyes*
I had asked for an iced chocolate,
but he who put the order in,
ordered me the wrong thing....... :(

So annoying!!

U know what REALLY annoys me??
When you pay good money for clothes,
and they just break way too quickly!!
Just found a button off Tani's Pumpkin Patch jumper
in the washing machine,
she has only worn it a few times!!
It has been happening SOOO often lately,
Just driving me Nuts!

Check it out!!

How good does this face paint look!!
Tani got this done at dreamworld on April 28th..
It cost $8 for half face paint,
well worth it I think,
I have never seen face paint this good before!!
