What are You Doing Friday Night????

If you want to have some scrappy fun, head on over to ScrapbooknBits. The monthly cybercrop is happening, and I am hosting it!!!

There will be 3 challenges, Bingo, and a "Who Am I?" game that will be going all weekend.

Hope to see you there!!!
Also, just a quick share, the lovely Jane at SnB has been doing a "2009 Journal" . Sadly, I realised in oh, about February (LOL) that there was no way I was going to keep going with this.....

Instead, I've decided to do a Double LO - and this is the 1st part, Jan - June.......

Ok, that's about it for now, my next little projects are going to be for the White With 1 Challenge, and the 123 Challenge Blog....
I'll share when I'm done!! ;0)

Scrappy Shares and a Family Photo Shoot

I did this layout a while back for the July challenge at the White With 1 challenge blog. The challenge was to use white, purple and circles.... I hit a real speedbump mojo wise with this layout.... I started with something completely different in mind, then that didn't work out, so then I tried something else, now I think it's just a mish mash, and I am still not sure I like it.... Hence the title......LOL!!

We finally got some family portraits done that I actually like!!!
Done by North Qld photography, we did the $10.00 fundraising deal at my school's Prep.
Of course, I couldn't resist buying the package! LOL!

That's it for now - hope to be back tomorrow with some more scrappy shares!!!

Tummy Bugs!! :0(

I don't know if I've mentioned this before - but of all the illnesses around, I HATE Tummy Bugs - I hate nursing them, I hate cleaning up after them, and I hate having them!!!

Our whole family has been sick over the last 2 days. Connor started it off, and being the good little share bear that he is, promptly passed it on to the rest of us!!!!

Oh dear, at least I was the last to get it, so today I have been concentrating on looking after me, and Mark has actually been really supporting and nice..... Hmmmmm - what does he want, or what has he done??? LOL!!!!! I even got a bunch of flowers from the boy's excursion to Mt Pleasant to run a couple of errands..... It was Connor's idea apparently!!! Awwww....... that boy is going to make a good boyfriend/husband one day - LOL!!!!!
Before we all got sick, we had a lovely weekend - busy chilling out, instead of busy chasing our tails.... We even managed a family outing to Cape Hillsborough. Connor had heaps of fun exploring the beach, and then had a BIG play on the playground - with some new - found friends!! LOL
Here are some pics, it was really odd up there - the fog was rolling in from the sea, and it was 11am!!! It looked really eerie, actually!

Lastly, I did this Layout based on Page 8 from the brilliant A Page From My Sketchbook Blog by Liz Weber. Every month, there is a fantastic new sketch put up. It used to be a challenge blog, but sadly, Liz had to stop the challenge, because she wasn't getting enough sponsors. Thumbs up to Liz, though, for continuing the Sketches!!

A Couple of Shares......

I know, I've been a slack blogger. Since my computer met an untimely death due to its encounter with a cup of coffee, (D'oh!!) it's been really difficult to do much on a computer, since now I am forced to use DH's 'puter, and sometimes he doesn't play nice and share! LOL!

Anyway a couple of shares.

This one I did for the 123 Challenge Blog:

I have used Coordinations Cardstock, which I stamped with a Prima stamp, and splattered with red. The Paper is Rose Moka....There's also a bit of Basic Grey goodness there, too!

This one was for the Creative Team at Scrap The Boys Challenge Blog. The theme this month is Masterchef - with the criteria of a photo of your boys and something to do with food, and using a cooking term in the title.

I used the totally gorgeous Cosmo Cricket Early Bird Range. I just love the cute little embies that can be made out of the paper.....
