A Busy Day

Here is a study of Flowers we had to do for a challenge with Scrap with V .
Mine is the life stages of a gravilia....

DDs School had their sports carnival today.... Doncha just love sports day fashion!!!


And the hair do!!!
Been a busy day today. Started with Breakie with Jack & Brenda at the Verdict, at which time i actually booked in four functions!! Honestly, the beet business is done while having coffee at the verdict! Its the equivilant to going to the pub to drum up business over a beer for a bloke!!
Lots of running around this arvo...... my feet didnt hit the groud... I also went for my walk and then organised balloons for a funeral.... Huge Day!!!
SO, now im gonna have my hot choccie o points and choc chip bikkies 2 points... and go to bed!!!

Update on the weight loss thing though:
Been great!! Even breakie was worked into the points and i still didnt use all those points i have saved already this week... And the scales say a 1.7kg loss so far!! Not bad for a few days work!!

Hmmm, this Sissy pack was really hard to scrap. Although i love the colours, and the making memories papers - i always really stuggle to scrap the pastel colours.
This layout was actually scraplifted from a layout i get of the web somewhere... sorry to the scrapper that did this, I cant name you - but the design is yours, thanks.. I love it. Addit: The designer of this layout is Kathie Link.... (Thanks Joanne for letting me know)
"The Pink Jersey"


This one for just for those photos i gotta scrap..... Not really fussed on it..
"Great weather for scraping"

This one is one of the nicest with the papers.

The making memories paper in this pack were lovely... just didnt like the other ones....

"SWV Retreat.."

Granny Update.......

It makes me feel like an old person talking about my health...

*croaky squeaky voice*
"Well deary, Ive thrown my hip out again and fractured my pelvis when i fell trying to go to the toilet... They have me here in the hospital and look, the food is dreadful.. But the darling doctor is a wonderful man, highly educated you know.... Did you hear about........"

Anyway, the voice is slowly coming back. Im sure i have an infection of some sort...... Everything is green.... ewwwwww

Here is the layout with Josh finger in his ear......

Emelia thinks its hilarious!!

I find it frustrating!!
Especially when i answer the phone... "Squeeking.... Hello, Back to Balloons Jodi Speaking"... who is it they say.... Its jodi.... I ahve no voice......

Then they proceed to want to have a conversation!!! Like that aint gonna happen today!!! LOL



Anyway, last night i was playing with a new kit from Ruby Street Designs... Its alot of vintage kinda products.. Ive been wanting to play with one of these kits for a while now..

This one is "Bejewel'd" Is about aspirations to be like my Nan as far as elegant presentation and feminity.... The photo is a glamour photo of me... 1995



Yesterday was the last assesment my son had to do for school!!! Hes done now all except the HSC!!
He was so pleased!!

Still Sick

Last night i woke with the sweats, i was soking!! Twice that happened and then this morning i woke with the barking cough..... i think its gone to my chest now!!!

It hurts so much to cough, its like it just rips my throat on the inside, all the way up!!!

Anyway, enough of that... I sound like my grandmother.... "deary im so sick today"... notice the croaky old persons voice... "go get me my bed pan"....

Anyway, thought id do a quick bit of scrapping last night, so did another page for my celebrate 2008 book.
This ones theme was: What made you laugh till you cried.... Well just look at the pictures,,, that says it all!! Karioki at my 40th! Hilarious!!



We went to Narrabri and visited the rels... most of whom were at the cemetary!!!!
This is my Nans Mum and Dad.. I never knew her name, so this was good to find out!!
These guys were some Heagney relation, I think Ivys parents???? So my great great great grandparents...
This was my Pops Mum and Dad... Look his dad died at 30. Apparently he commited suiside... so sad as he had 4 lovely little boys and his wife was a highly regarded musician.
So there was a bit of family history... Ive done a heritage album, so i can add those now...

I bit the Bullet

Ive tried and i cant do it!!
After being on Jenny Craig for three years!! Losing 30 kilos and then going off it and putting 20 back on in only MONTHS!!! Its obvious I cant do this weight management thing... And Jenny Craig does nothing to teach you how to maintain it... they just want your money every week!! I went of Jeeny Craig as i started putting weight on, while on it!!!! I personally didnt think my kilojule intake was right!!
So, today I joined Weight Watchers on line... Im not into the weekly meeting thing, but i might be able to do this!!!
So wish me luck!!!!

Hubby was out driving around taking photos today..... Some gorgeous farming scenery.. Lovely!!
Till next update... I will let you know how i go after a week!!

We have "Speadmouse" on DVD, but seeing live LIVE was awesome!!! WHat funny funny guys!!

I did this really cute delivery yesterday for a new baby boy!!! Look at that Lamb, isnt it cute!!
Dont you think for $55 this is HUGE value for money... and will last for a couple of weeks... unlike flowers!!!

Emelia had the best day today!!!
It was her first competition!!!

It was a Jumping Competition Day. She was in F Grade with another adorbale little girl from Narrabri... (She is 5!!) But F grade is for all newbies!!!
Cimmi was wonderful. Even though the jumps werent terribly high, she didnt bowk at any of them.. Good Girl Cimmi!!! And best of all, Emelia didnt fall off!!!
She came out with 2 firsts and a second... One was an equal first place.

In action
With all her ribbons
Typical Emelia
Matt rode into town to see Emelia ride... but missed her events unfortunately!!!


Then, ontop of a huge day at the showground... I also had a Christmas in July function to do today.... 20 balloon bouquets with centrepeice designs... Very cute!!!


So that was my big day!!
