Day 283...... Dont forget CyberScraps on-line class tonight

Here is the layout we are doing.... :New Beginnings"....
The pack is availble from CyberScraps for $18 and the class is free... Bargain!!!

Here it is open.....
This is my daily photo.... day 283.......
Had coffee with Brenda today, Jack couldnt make it as she was very very busy making the nicest looking birthday cakes!! Amaising!!!!

We also had Hol over for a visit today. Her brother decided to get drunk on a bottle of panadol unscrewing the "Childproof" lid and downing the hole bottle!!!! So off they went to the hospital and Hol stayed for a visit. Shes so smart this kid!! I was amaised at her sense of direction. From her low spot in the car - no car seat!! She knew exactly where we were at any given time!! Thats wonderful for a "nearly" 4 year old!!!
Here is my darling daughter and her posing for photos!!! Too cute!!

And cheryl... so many nicknames.... cheryl (as in feral cheryl), ratta, milly, possom, milsey... and the list goes on... fred was another one...

I couldnt believe the birds in these trees this morning.. boy were they noisy!!!! This is the tree i always take my dai8ly photo under. We live in a suburban street and look at the size of it!! Stu planted it on the sewer drain and wonders why its alway blocking up... His response was "Look at the size of the tree though..." Yes dear!!! :)
Thats it for today.. talk tomorra

Its done!!!

Here is my album i made using this months sissy pack.

This is for my daughter and when we are blewing, she can read this and then tear it up!!! Thats why i chose the hard acrylic album.. now theres thinking for you hey???

"Why I love you"
Because your fun to be around.

Im so please i set out to do this today and i did it!! What an achievement!!! Yay!!!

Day 282..... New Pandora!!!!

Look at all my gorgeous new pandora i bought on ebay.... ok, most of them arnt pandora - a couple are... but mostly another brand... The Beads are a real bead....
(Dont take any notice of the bible one... that was a freeby and you'll notice it didnt end up on my bracelet!!)
I dont want to mislead poeple into thinking am a bit religious. I mean personally, if thats one persons believe system than thats great for them, its good to have it.. but due to past events in my life, i no longer have any kind of religious belief system. My faith is in my husband and kids, my baby brother and Kel his wife, my mum and ken... family and friends.. those are the things that mean to most to me and what i have put my faith in..... (Long winded explanation for a bead is it not??)

Here is what they all look like on.... Just over one week to fill it.... But i also get a freeby bracelet with my many bead purchases, so i am thinking i will break them down into two now, as i ahve nore glass beads heading my way!!!

Here is todays photo.... The day has not long started and for the first time in a long time, i have nothing booked in... so im scrapping as soon as i finish here.
Hubby and son are off to a bike rally thingying in Casino this weekend - so its just the girls.. Might do the pictures and some shopping, but mostly scrapping.
Oh and i started reading this dreadful book this morning that i know will get finished while the boys are away..... Its called Broken its about the one of the worst cases of child abuse.....

Here is another layout for Cyberscraps. Can you notice that i am using up a heap of old supplies with these layouts. This is challenge 9 in the celebrate 2008 challenge.... The topic is How are you earning a crust this year. well technically, i aint gettin no bread.... but it is giving me some crumbs to support my habit.....

Here is another bag lasy photo for Brenda.... they are coming together now. Should have enough for a layout soon....

Wish me happy scrappin.....
Have an awesome weekend with Keith Brenda.... we all envy you!! Give him a huge passionate kiss from me and give nicole a slap is she has a problem with it!!!!..... Im so GREEN with envy!!!

Day 281..... National Safari Results are in.....

Anyone who knows me at all, would know that every easter this lawt few years, we have gone to compete in the National Field Archey titles. This year they are in Hervey Bay.
Last year we walked away hugely successful and bought home gold medals galour in our house and i had the privilidge of being on the winning National 3D Team....

But, this year we didnt go. With years of drought money had been a bit tight, and Stu didnt feel comfortble going on his own - not that it would have worried us. But 2 weeks of year 12 for Josh was out of the question, and i had weddings.... so it was impossible....

But today its all over and the results are in..... Its so exciting, our club once again did really well and i am so proud of everyone. One lady who has had a bummer last couple of years went really well and i am so happy for her.

My partner in crime Linda, took out the 3D as we expected her too, and also took out the ABA which is wonderful!! You go girl!!! I miss the fact that i didnt go. Outside the archery its just so social and great fun.. especially the camping!!!

Here is a link if your interested in the results..

But onto todays activities.... I attended a class on Cognitive Therapy today. Its a 6 week course and this was the second week - i missed the first. I really got so much out of it and if they say that we will be able to help our reactions to things than i am totally happy to attend them. It would be so great to see our teens do something like this at school - great for communication and dealing with issues!!!

Here is todays photo... day 281. Pink has just about gone now.... Hmmm, might go for blue next time, or purple!!!

Brenda has given me the challenge of doing a layout with my handbags.. Im working on accumulating photos. But i dont want to stage them - I will take my time and get photos on the days that i use my different handbags... That will mean more to me than staging the photos. I was wearing my green and torquoise pearl necklace today, so i went for the matching torquoise bag.. Its my birthday baggie too.... Very Noice....

I also got another thing for my pandora today... its a fake from ebay, so not worthy of a photo.. But its very cute. Gold and the bead is green pink and gold....

This layout is one i did for cyberscraps celebrate 2008 challenge. WHo are your friends this year. Well, i really wanted to remember the times that Michelle and i have spent together recently. Its so wonderful to rekindle school friendships and honestly, shel is just as mad as she was when we were young.... nothing has changed and i am so proud that we are still mates....
Thats my day today.. seeya tomorra!!
