Finish another double layout tonight... just waiting for dimentional magic to dry - I will load it up tomorrow!!
Guess who has the run of the house?? He is such a lap rabbit. He cruises around us all of a night. He sits on my lap while i scrap. If he wants to get a pat, he'll just follow you around the house. He goes into Emelias room and jumps on her bed for a pat.... Hes so cute!!!
Ive been trying to think of a good one for today........ a deep dark secret........something really juicy and embarrasing......... but honestly, cant think of anything.......except maybe.......i bite my nails......horribly!!! Really short down to the quick. Even when i was changing pooey nappies - it didnt stop me!!!
So there we are, the month is over and you girls now know me better than anyone!!!
Today i provided the balloon for the Mullaley Matrons ball. Mullaley has a population of about 50, but this year is the 50th Anniversary of their annual ball. They will have over 200 people at it!!! Will be a great night. I dont go to them myself, but i do enjoy helping with the decorations.

This is totally my favorite necklace and one of my favorite tops. Another habit of mine.... again with the jewellery is that the necklace and tops have to match. I can settle with earings that dont match perfectly, but the necklace and top have to. This is a Goondiwindi Cotton Top. I love GC brand - very me!!!
Had coffee and cake with Mum and Brenda today. Not intentional - just happened. We were all up the street at the same time.

I was actually watching this gorgeous little blew wren in the garden picking at bugs in the lawn while this photo was being taken. Another female wren came and landed in the tree right in front of me.... But when i moved to get a photo, it flew off!!!
But one thing i did catch in the garden were the bees. They were flitting from flower to flower. I was so pleased to actually capture shots of them...
This is a close up of the flowers the bees were in..... None is this one though. But isnt it a great photo... Taken with my point and shoot digital in micro mode with a flash!!
You cant really see the bee as the photo is too small. But in the normal size one, you can see a great shot of the bee on the right of the flower
Look really closely and you will actually see the bee in the centre, Notice his stripey body!!! Im so please with this photo
I do totally love spring. I love the smell of all the flowering trees and i especially love the chineese jasmine that flowers out the back of the house and the jonquils that flower out the front...... Beautiful time of year....
OK, thats me for today.
See ya tomorrow!!

Just thought Id share this photo with you. This is on the ABA site. Keep in mind that leading up to this shoot i was weighing the least that i ahve weighted in the 18 months since i have been dieting!!!! I was sneaking this little bite size Mars Bar. And of course, whos snuck up with the camera!! The official National Archery Championships cameraman!!! Got me eating a mars bar!!! Then if that wasnt bad enough.... hes published it on the National ABA web site!!!! Typical man!!!
I was visiting Pip's blog and i found a gorgous layout she had done for a project in her shop. Seeing as i had that patterned round bit of paper, I thought this would be the perfect thing for it. And i also really liked the idea of filling it full of the 365 day challlenge photos!!
So here is mine..... I used completely different colours and things, but the placement of everything is the same... I totally love Pips scrapbooking and it has inspired me quite a bit lately. (Ever since meeting Brenda and seeing her gorgous stuff!!)
I also made a start on the monthly Sissy pack. I just did this single layout which was a sketch from sketch me if you can. She has some great sketches in there. Id been sitting on these photos for about a week, and couldnt think of anything to do with them.. They arnt terribly inspiring in themselves - but still wanted to scrap them. I scrap everything - its my diary!!!

Talk about biting of more than i can chew. This is another idiosyncracy of mine..... I do think things through - but sometimes i just dont see the big picture and get a bit lost. What was supposed to take an afternoon took 2 days. And goodness knows how many garbage bags later!!! Im such a horder. I had to be tough on myslef and if i havnt used it in 2 years its going!!!!
So now Ima exsausted and my feet ache and by but muscles ache. I know tomorrow my shoulders will ache and so will my back!! SO I think it might be time for a little drinkies....
Then I shall be rewarding myself with some scrapbooking..... something different for a change.... LOL

I aslo did a bit of scrapping last night - surprise surprise!! I did this layout - "These Boots" my aunty was a recording artist way back when. She was a yodeller. "The youngest recording artist" My Poopy Sid used to rattle of the same story over and over....... I can still remember every word. He so adored Aunty Jacquies singing...... We all do!! The lovely old country songs. Anyway, her things are in the Country Music Museam in Tamworth. So this is the page to commemorate that memory.
When Mum and I went to the meseum to have a look at Jacquies things, we found this bloke. Kevin King who was being put into the role of renoun... He toured with Ausnty Jack and Mum went too. So they had a lovely time catching up on "The Good Old Days" as the page is titled!!!
So, thats day 65 for me. This took much longer than I anticpated and i ahve work to do!!!! See ya tomorrow!!!
