It was a lovely simple sketch with so many possibilities. I guess when I work from a sketch I tend to follow it pretty much exactly. The colour in the photo posted is a bit washed out. It has slightly more pink tones in it.
Well Shawn is eating really well! I am so proud of him!! Fingers crossed he can keep it up. He had a smile on his face when he arrived home from school....I hadn't seen that for awhile. The trip to the dentist for a check up after school today will soon wipe the smile away :)
When I am in town today I need to get myself a copy of 'For Keeps'. The fab Miss Meg has 2 pages in this issue out today! I will update with page numbers when I get home.
UPDATE - Ok! If you turn to page 27 of For Keeps Issue 64 and page 43 you will find the work of a very talented Ms Meg! If anyone is interested in a signed copy by this first time published artist, I am happy to ask Meg as she is a close personal friend of mine.... I should be able to get better seats at restaurants, entry into all the major night clubs just by dropping her name! LOL I picked up the last 2 copies of For Keeps at the newsagent I went to, one for me and one for Pam. Meg will be doing a signing tomorrow morning over coffee and Mud cake at my place if anyone wants to come around! :)

These are the 6x6 pages for the Southern Cross Kids Camp. Pam, Meg, Gail and I made them at a crop night. I didn't do a final count, but there is over 100! Go check out Julie Stones blog for details and see if you can help!
Well I worked (in paid employment LOL) yesterday and today, I will need a week off! :) Shawn's mate Nash is here for the night while is parents are off getting drunk, I mean at a wedding :) The boys are having a great time! If it involves Star Wars or Lego then it is a go! If it is Star Wars Lego...Wooo look out for the excitment!
This is a card I made for my Great Aunts 80th. It is Basic Greys 2 Scoops Swirl paper. (from JSJ) It is so easy to use! For something a bit different I added Kindy Glitz to the swirls.... lol
Today is also my Dad's Birthday... Happy Birthday Dad, xxx
I am now going to go out and wash down and exterior wall! How silly am I? LOL

Wow, finally a LO that I am happy with! It has been awhile :) Ingredients are Love Elsie Lola papers, Rusty Pickle alpa stickers and the rest you can work out. I seem to be a bit of a Kindy Glitz freak atm. Soon I should have the walls looking all pretty :)
My baby fish are growing up so fast...where does time go...LOL I didn't think all 12 would survive but so far so good. They are bite size so they are still in the breeding tank.
Liberty is doing so well in her big bed. She stays in and doesn't get in and out like I thought she would. We have a rail to put on the bed, but she hasn't fallen. See our logic, we will put the rail on after she rolls out! Good parenting LOL
Shawn is doing well at school. I asked him to write on Grandpa's birthday card and I was blown away by how neat it was. My lefty boy! x

This morning I was helping (via email) my Uncle get his blog going. He is heading off to America with a mate to play golf. They made their own tour. He is going to keep everyone posted via his blog...pretty cool I thought! You would think with all of my computer help I would get a neat treat from his trip...hint hint :)
I then did this LO for the White with 1 challenge. This is the maiden month for this clever challenge blog. Looks like everything will start with white, then you add one colour and 1 embellishment. This month is red and a 'love' embellishment. I like mine, but I don't love it. I can see what I should have done differently....oh well....
I better keep going. Matt is away tonight so I want to be organised so I can kick back tonight... x

I did this LO last night. It is for the Feb comp at Basically Scrapbooking. It is a sketch challenge from one of Becky Flecks sketches. A great sketch I thought! I loved this paper. It is MME, Mademoiselle, so beautiful.
I also must note the fantastic photography by Rachel :)
Tomorrow my computer has a doctors appointment. Hopefully I can claim it on medicare!
Not sure how long I will be without it. Hopefully it will be a 24hour bug and nothing more. $$$
See you all when I have a happier and healthier puter! x

This is my effort for the 123 February challenge. Numbers in your title, Journal strips, and transparency.
My trans is a bit tricky to see. Behind the green flowers are acetate flowers. I almost broke someones punch making them....shhhh, don't tell her.... :)

Matt has had a super day! We are moving the kids rooms around in aid of Liberty needing to go into a bed. Liberty now has Shawns bed. Matt sprayed it white this morning and it looks beautiful! Shawn now has Matts old bed from his mothers. It is a king single. My boys are tall! :) Shawn is so happy. They each have new chests of drawers that Matt put together. So pretty much everything came out of the rooms and went back in differently.
Tomorrow will be another big day as I have 7 years of kids toys to go through and the dust that comes with them.... But we will get there!
It is hard to see my baby in a big bed.... but don't worry, I took photos!
This is the LO I did a few days ago for the Scrapping Jewels Feb comp. I love the photo of Mickey and Minnie. They are such a happy couple... I have a sweet spot for Mickey, we share the same birthday...not age, day. :)
Hope you are all having a good weekend! x

Today Liberty and I went to playgroup for the first time. She did very well, I was pleasantly suprised! She stayed pretty close to Molly. Not sure if that is a good thing, hey "Mum"...LOL
We have had more rain and had been told Armidale was flooded so after dinner we went up and had a look and since we made the trip picked up a macca's cone for Matt and the kids. I got my cup of pickles....yum!!
Well I have just cleaned up a little in this computer/office/scrap/storage/junk room. I forgot we had carpet! LOL

Liberty went to sleep and I scrapped...sorry I can't share...yet! :)
Then 2.30 that all changed.
I received a call from the school. Shawn had been hit in the head with a cricket bat! So I woke Liberty and wheeled over to the school...poor little man....so brave!
No stitches, a nice bruise and egg above his eyebrow. At bed time we found out that it was on the side I always kiss him goodnight on....so sweet!
I will try and do something interesting tomorrow... :)

Last night I started my first DT page at home then went around to Pams and finished it over some M&M's. I just then finished my 2nd DT LO....on a roll...hope it lasts lol.
This morning we stopped out and saw Miss Jess, her and Liberty play so well. After that we went to the dog show in Armidale. I had never been to one and after talking to a customer yesterday thought it might be fun...and it was!!!
Madeline (top left) had better hair than me. The paw print was on a Dalmatian (Jimmy). we had such a nice time looking at all the 'Combies'.
Well all the good shows are back on so I better get the popcorn ready! x

Well I worked this morning and desperately needed to print some photos....my flash drive wouldn't play nice so I came home empty handed..... Not real happy about that...Oh well!
I spent the rest of the day looking for Shawn's lost lego at the Baldwins... Dinner is done and dishes in the magic machine, so time to see what I can scrap...x

I worked Saturday, then took Shawn, Liberty and Courtney to the pool. That was Saturday over. I did manage to get a LO do for Sharons fun weekend challenge @ Scrapping Jewels. I knew I was limited on time so I combined 2 challenges into 1... Pretty tricky I thought...:) The photos are of Matt trying his new Wakeskis last weekend @ Grafton. The journalling is just me going on about Matts skiing, what a nice guy he is blah, blah, blah...:)
Well I better get moving, I have some of Mum's things to list on Ebay and I wan't to get some on before all the new TV shows start! x

Last weekend Earl ate the smallest neon tetra. Survival of the fittest. Today I found Earl floating upside down in the bottom of the tank. After looking in the books that Rach let me borrow, all the signs lead me to think Earl was constipated. Karma. Big fish shouldn't eat little fish, pick on someone your own size etc. You may get constipated and be flushed!
On a lighter note. Matt just called, he is away at a work 'team building' thing (yeah right!). Yesterday they played golf and drank, today they went white water rafting. I am sure tonight will be more drinking and possibly a few cards will get played... He sounded like he was having a great time. I am happy for him...I say bring on scrap camp. :)
