1. I lost my mum over 30 years ago and I still miss her every day.
2. I am very proud of my 4 gorgeous children.
3. I cannot tolerate people who back stab, if you have a problem with me or something to say about me, say it to me directly.
4. I love being creative, I love to design and scrap and I am thankful everyday that I have been given the opportunities to do this for my family.
5. I really hate when I can hear two things at once.. like the tv and the radio both going at the same time.
6. I wish there were more hours in every day, there just never seems to be enough time to do everything I want to do.
Yay I have been officially informed that I won a competition to be the SCRAPPINK guest designer for 1WORLDSCRAP !!!
Here is my original entry layout: (as on the top of my blog!)
And here is my guest designer layout: The journaling is in Spanish (hidden on the tag behind the photo) and it reads:
I have stitched the pieces of this layout back together, I wish it was so easy to fix my broken heart from when we lost you all those years ago to breast cancer. I miss you every day of my life. (for my Mum)
Sooooooooooo the other day when I was making cookies for Riley's birthday, I looked at the box and thought..wow I could alter this....and here is the result... A pretty pink princess box for Miss 14 (Carly) to put her bits and pieces in! The papers and hand bag tag are from the RASBERRY Princess range.. aren't they GORGEOUS!!!
I cannot believe that my sweet baby boy is 3 already...the past few years just seem to have disappeared in a puff of smoke...We had a nice morning...off to playgroup for a little party for him, on the way he threw up all over himself in the car, so we had to make the "clean him up" stop...then he spots McDonalds and wants that.. I am like hmmm I don't think so... I had only packed spare undies and pants as he is toilet training...didn't pack any spare tops so he was half naked (luckily it wasn't cold!)...when we got there one of the mum's had actually brought him a top as a present so he got to wear it straight away!!! Then after cookies, fruit and cupcakes, he is way too busy to go to the bathroom.. so another big clean up for me!!! But all in all we are having a good day so far...lots of photos to be scrapped and lots of hugs for mummy...but he keeps telling me "mummy I'm not 3, I am 4!!!! he has had this little obssession with the number 4 since he turned 2!
So much to do today and of course not enough hours as always...I am working on another project for Rasberry at the moment and last night I got a call from Nic at Twiddleybitz she wants to take some of my new Twiddleybitz Christmas layouts to the Paperiffic show in Melbourne in October!!
Anke from 1worldscrap is in the process of sending me some GORGEOUS products to do DT work with, I can't wait.
Here are a couple of layouts I did yesterday, that my friend Dalis from Cropstop challenged me to in a 1 hour timeframe, luckily it was just when I put Mister 3 down for his nap! Speaking of Cropstop Haylie Jo has the biggest range of dies for all die cutting machines that I have seen and not only that her prices are awesome...so check it out... and Cropstop have also opened there FORUM go join in and check it out!
I am a member at Studio Calico (a kit company in the US) ... however I have never been active on their blog but I always recieve the emails from them...today's email was different...one of their beloved friends from the site was killed in a car accident...a beautiful woman with a husband and young children...Her name was Aleida Franklin and though I never knew her.. this outpouring of love from her online friends and others has really touched me and made me stop and think about how precious life is... Aleida... just days ago she posted the most prophetic blurb and a gorgeous photo of herself on her blog...
How exciting...yesterday I received a box of NEW TWIDDLEYBITZ cuts to play with...WOW there is new Christmas trees, snowflakes, butterflies, celtic pieces, a koala in a gumnut (too cute) and a kangaroo!!! as well as a GORGEOUS candlelabra!!!! you have to see this stuff to believe it... Here are two pages I created using the snowflakes on one and the larger Christmas tree and twiddley letters on the other!!! For those who won something in the TWIDDLEYBITZ competition, keep an eye out for your postman, I mailed everything today! I have also received a couple of new TWIDDLEYBITZ items that I am going to have as prizes for a new challenge...so watch this space! Thanks for looking...
