Princess Carriage

This is the Twiddlybitz Carriage I did last year,
for Scrapbooking to Di for. I really loved doing this...
Soooo girly... The Twiddlybitz range is available at S2D4.
It has lots of great stuff, and has everything from
words, shapes, theme shapes and off the page stuff too.
It may be a little over the top....but I wanted it to be
"fancy". My DD loves it, and has it sitting proudly in her
I need to photograph some more of my LO's. I've
just realised that I don't have many on my computer...
Anyway will try to get that done, so I can post more.
Take Care

School Booklist

Well, yesterday I went to school to collect my eldest son's booklist for the new school year...
EASY !!! Not so !!! Apparently my sons booklist had disappeared along with about 10 other boys from the same class last year. So I spent the majority of today running around trying to collect all the stationary, he needs for school on Monday..... Easier said than done...BIG W was almost out of everything, however after a few phonecalls....a last minute visit to Woollies today, and an early visit to Wooldridges tommorrow morning, all should be right with the world !!!! Next year I think I shall get them home delivered, save the stress......
Still no luck with my leafy ribbon....I've been all over the internet...but no luck....I'm still hoping that someone who reads my blog will know where to get, or knows someone willing to sell me, that ever elusive leafy ribbon.

Over and out

Teachers Thankyou's

These are the paint tins I made for teachers gifts,
last year. I filled them with Cadburys Favorites....
And the Teachers loved them !!!! I have a lot
of books to collect tommorrow....Getting ready
for all of my three to go to school.....WOOOOHOOOO.
Love my babes to death, but I think they are ready
for a new school year. My youngest is off to PrePrimary

housework to catch up, cupboards.....
All the things you don't get to do while kids are home.
Well, thats me for today....

She was only 2 when this was taken, and it was just after bathtime. she took one look at the camera and posed......She is 4 now and still poses at the drop of a hat.....

My wonderful mum

This is a layout I did for a challenge at scrapbooking to Di for......for which I came third.....It had to be a layout about a lifechanging event, and journalling of 200 words min. Well I lost my Mum on 15th July, and it has changed my world forever.....I don't think the phoito shows it as nice as IRL...but I'm still pleased with the way it turned out.....My mum was always very encouraging when it came to my scrapbooking, and she loved to look at all the old pages in my albums......I think she would be pleased with this LO also...........More Soon, to anyone who is reading.....
