I have finally finished writing report cards - that is why I've been so quiet in Blogger land lately! LOL! What I want to know is why does someone who can talk the leg off an iron pot, have writer's block EVERY time it is report time??? I know what the kids can do, I TEACH them for goodness sake - but when it comes to writing comments, I ummmmm and ahhhhh for ages over each sentence!!! Aaaagggghhhh! It drives me nuts!!! LOL

Oh well, tomorrow is Show Day holiday here in Mackay, so I plan on chilling and scrapping for most of the day - oh, and staining our new back door (way too looooong a story! LOL!)

On a really happy note, I've been tagged, by the lovely Miss Julie :0)
Ok, here goes, I really hope I don't muck this up!!

  • 8 Things I Look Forward To (Not necessarily in order!):

1. School Holidays
2. Seeing Connor's little face EVERY day
3. Seeing my Mum and Dad and Nanna
4. Relaxing on a beach - any beach!
5. Christmas
6. Weekends
7. Taking delivery of our new car
8. A chocolate fix!

2. Helped someone learn something new.
3. Broke up a fight.
4. Went grocery shopping

7. Cuddled my little boy
8. Went to bed VERY late.....
  • 8 Things I wish I could do:

1. Lose weight

4. Renovate our house.
5. Travel overseas.
6. Play the piano/saxophone with some expertise.

Now, I don't know about you, but I looooove a good cybercrop, there is nothing better than spending an evening chatting, scrapping and playing games with lovely people.
If that sounds like something you'd like to do, head on over to ScrapbooknBits next weekend. From the 26-28 June, Mel will be hosting the SnB "Animal Magnitism" Cybercrop. There is going to be Challenges, Comps and heaps of prizes - as well as great company, what more could you want???

Gotta Love the Queen!!!

Happy Queen's Birthday everyone!

I have had a lovely long weekend, even if it did involve writing report cards! LOL!

It was pretty quiet here in the Follett household, we didn't do too much, which was just as well, because on Saturday and Sunday I was not feeling the best, nerves wise, and today I seem to have developed and ear infection!!! Agggghhhh!
We went to the little trains yesterday, as usual Connor had a ball - he is always so excited to get his little ride! hehe!
Every afternoon this weekend we walked at the Gooseponds - and fed the ducks, which Connor loves! He is getting sooooo fast on his bicycle now - I have to jog to keep up, the little monkey always looks back at me huffing and puffing and has a real "Catch me if you can" look on his face! Eeeeek! It's like he's appointed himself my personal trainer! LOL!

Just a couple of shares tonight.

This is a layout I did with a gorgeous Liz Weber Sketch, from her Challenge Blog "A Page From My Sketchbook"
Her sketches are so well put together, it is just so easy to create a layout with them :0)
I have used some Sass Lass Anthem Papers here - just cut out embies from the pp and mounted them on 3D dots!

I also had a little play with some ideas I saw in an article by Renee Dowling in Scrapbooking Memories.

Just love how the alcohol inks turned out on the Twiddleybitz Mirror Butterflies. The paper is a new range by Bo Bunny - gosh I love their papers! LOL!

Quick Shares

Well, after another visit to the doctor's, I'm still none the wiser about what is happening with me health wise. The doctor seems to think it is all linked to stress and my anxiety issues, but just to be on the safe side, I now have to go to the Mackay Mater to get a 24 hour Halter ECG fitted on Wednesday - mmmmmm noice. I have to go in and have it fitted, then wear it for 24 hours - sleeping, working, the whole box and dice, I can't even shower! I looooove my showers!!!! Oh well, anything really to rule out any serious issues, I guess.....
OK, well, on the weekend I completed a couple of Challenge Blog Layouts.

The first one was for Scrap The Boys

This one was for the White With One Challenge Blog:
