OMG my layout is in a mag right now!!! First time ever!

Hi girls :D :D :D
I am extremely wrapped and over the moon atm! My layout I created a couple of months ago especially for Scrapbook Creations hit the shelves yesterday. Its in the latest issue 72, in the Reality Bites section. I'm just so excited because its all about pregnancy, and I just feel really privlidged and happy because Jenni O'connor approached me and asked me to create a layout based around my pregnancy :D Its just means alot to me because its first time ever i've been published and also a awesome special keepsake for Savannah-Rose :D Unfortunately though, they published the name wrong, instead of just Belynda Duffill they added a -Rae on the end of it, used to be apart of my name along time ago due to my mum remarrying a horrible man that is now thankfully out of our lives. So silly me didnt realise a couple of months ago that my hotmail account had rae attached to the end of my name. All changed now though :D Thankfully someone invented white out LOL. But anyways here is a pic of my work hehe.

Oh guess what my little man started his first day of kindy today :( Very excited for him but very scared at the same time, this is a massive milestone one which means my little dude is growing way too fast. But this is what he needs, to laugh, learn and play with others his own age and plus give mummy a much needed break. We've been trying for over 6 months now to get him in and after trying at 15 different kindy's we finally found one that had a vacancy and its one wicked kindy :D Of course mummy had to snap some photos of his first day :D

Where does the time go??? Can you beleive Savannah-Rose is already 8 weeks old!! The poor little chooken had her needles yesterday, they jabbed her while she was asleep so seriously was not a nice way to wake up. But she was good, cried for a little while and then fell back to sleep :) But already miss savannah has one heck of a personality on her, we can already tell shes gunna be a fun lovin chick!! She giggles and laughs at us already and always has a story on hand for anyone that'll listen. Alex and missy moo are becoming the best of friends now, we cant go anywhere without alex saying sisser Rose coming? He cant say savannah yet so he instead says sisser rose or bubba rose, so super cute. Anyhoos here is a pic of our little girl :D Oh also picked up our portrait photos yesterday, very impressed and happy with the results :D

If you've read this far, you've done well LOL, that was a huge post, have heaps more to show aswell, but I think that'll do for now. Will post in couple of days all the ATC's I've done for various swaps. And hopefully get some scrapping done Oh and thankyou Diana, Lisa K and Sarah for giving me those awesome blog awards, I will post and pass on anouther day when post isnt so big lol :D
Have a wonderful weekend peoples xoxo TFL
