Cd Tin

This is the CD case that I made to put the wedding CD in. The Bridesmaids wore B&W and the ties and flowers were pinks. I am happy enough with the tin, it will do the job. Now all I have to do is burn the photos and get some printed at work tomorrow as a final test.
The Christmas decorations have come down from storage in the roof so we are making progress. I think we are going to unpack a few things now. The kids are very excited. Liberty has been dancing and sing 'Santa Claus' or 'Ho Ho Ho'...very cute... I better go and see what is happening and then start thinking about what I will wear out tonight. I am off to the Top Pub with 'The Girls' for dinner. I am very excited...I don't have to cook!!!! :}

My big boy...

Well tonight my boys went to Basketball. As it is the end of year it is a mixed social comp. Shawn has been going to watch his Dad for weeks now and this week he got to play!! I am sure he was taller with pride when he walked in the door tonight. I had to get a photo of his grin, his cheeks will hurt in the morning. He had to have a shower to wash the sweat off. They really do grow up quick and I think it is going into hyper drive.

What fun...

I am lovin' this Picasa, it is soooo easy to use! After I finished editing the wedding photos I had a quick play with this image. (as seen below in its original form) So the wedding is all done. Matt and the kids have gone for a bike ride to the park. Shawn had to try out his new blue croc type shoes. We have looked at a lot of shops to find his size and finally we found them! The boys are off to basketball tonight. Shawn loves going to watch his Dad play, he is so proud of him. I am proud of them both. Freezer surprise for dinner tonight, I am very un-organized...

Thanks everyone

WOW!! My friends are actually looking at my blog...Thanks... x

Well last night I did catch the last 20mins of the soccer...I still don't get the Beckham hype? What is it with the ink all down 1 arm? Anyway!! Glad Sydney FC won. The best TV of last night is that Grey's was a repeat, yay, I don't have to stay up late! Well I have heaps to do today while Liberty sleeps so I better go and get myself moving.
This LO Is for a Rusty Pickle challenge on Entries close tonight and so far they only have 3. I am not sure what the prize is but it comes directly from RP. It would be a nice one to win....

Tonight I have downloaded Picasa and had a play. I have Photoshop 3 but I just don't make the time to use it to it's full potential. This image was so easy to manipulate. These are the brides flowers from the weekend. I want to 'play' with some see if I can make them look just a little bit professional. Besides Picasa has to be better than Beckham on the TV!

Just a quickie...

Morning! Just a quick post before I run out the door. Is anyone else ticked over TV programing? Criminal Minds was on twice last night. The repeat was on at the normal time so I missed the new one as I was watching Supernatural. Greys is back tonight at 10pm!!! What the?
Lucky I have really cut back my viewing hours or I am sure I would have more to vent about... There was a time, not that long ago that I had things I wanted to watch every night, now I have 3 nights and that is all. Have a good day!

Bottle brush

This LO is of the first flowers on Liberty's Bottle brushes. When Liberty was born she was given about 40 Australian native plants from a friend who had a nursery. This is the first year they have flowered, not all of them, just this variety and some of the Flax grass. YAY!!!

Today I finally took some photos so that I can start listing on EBay again. Hopefully I will get some on tonight. You can tell the weather is nice again after all the storms we have had. Tonight was potato bake and BBQ. Matt did the best thick, juicy T-bones.

Well I have been organising a brad swap with the B.S girls and the last of them arrived in the mail today. They are all packed and ready to send back out tomorrow. It is a great mix of brads!

This is my Giraffe LO for the November sketch challenge over on Basically Scrapbooking. the site is finishing up at the end of this month. I have had a great time on the forum for the past few months. Thanks to all my forum friends! It is sad that it will be no longer, but as it is the main site I visit and only forum I get involved in, my house should now be spotless! :} If anyone reading is interested they have 25% off all the goodies in the shop. Hopefully I will get my last order in in the next few days...

Busy weekend

Well it is almost the end of the weekend. It was quite busy for me. Yesterday I worked at Eastmons in the morning, home to vote and then I had a great afternoon taking wedding photos for Amelia and Dylan. What a lovely couple they are. It was a beautiful wedding. I hope the photos I have taken capture that. After the happy couple see them I will post some to share.
The photo I have posted is of my wonderful husband. What a hottie! Taken at Stockton beach November 16th

Today was pretty low key. Shawn had a sleep-over a Nash's Friday and recovered by not getting out of bed today until 9am...lucky him! I believe the boys had a very funny time...
I did call my Dad this morning and he was looking out at a white yard. Not a lot of snow, just a light cover.
There was a crop day in Uralla at the pub I didn't really attend because Saturday was such a big day. I did go and have lunch with Pam. Chicken in pajamas (as Matt calls it) not as good as last time. oh well. I came home and have finished a LO (scrapbook page or lay-out) and have started my second. We are just home from our first visit to the pool for this season. Kids are in the bath and I am enjoying my lollypop! Hotdogs for dinner...too easy! :}

I'm a big girl now.

Well I have now started to tell my trusty friends how to find me. Not sure why I wasn't ready to share. I guess my expectations of myself are to high... oh well...

This photo is for an on-line comp with the guidelines of Macro. I had a nice walk around my garden last week. I had beautiful images of my bottlebrush opening for the first time ever. I thought everyone would do flowers so I went with this as it also has animals. I had never seen a spider like this one, bright white, camped out in my Arum Lilly. My new camera has great macro features, you can get in so close that I touched the lens on the flower at times and it would still stay in focus, me likes!!!

Well I better keep moving Miss L will be awake and I want to email Moo and let her know that this exists and also that I am expecting a phone call tomorrow!!!! lol Thinking of you sweet...

Me and my big mouth!

This morning my lovely friends had a birthday morning tea for me. Pam makes the best Ice Cream cake thingy with Violet crumble...mmmmmm Thanks Pam...looking forward to the one with Oreos!!!
Soooo, my ability to not keep quiet stepped in and told Meg that I too now have a blog. I was good and didn't give out the name...but she thinks she can track me down! I now have to wait and see...

I also want to thank Miss Indi for my special hand decorated birthday treats. I will go now and find somewhere special for them. Thankyou

My 31st Birthday Surprise

Well my first 'real' post. No one knows this site exists yet. I will wait until I am comfortable before I share. :}
For my birthday this year Matt & Shawn thought it would be nice to 'surprise' me & take me to the zoo. It was a fantastic birthday, one of my best! This photo is not great but it shows the Giraffes being fed. Approx 10 minutes after I took this photo we were able to hand feed them carrots and have our photo taken with them. They have slimey but rough tongues. Some useless info for the day. Their tongues are black so they don't get sunburnt!
