A blog update at last...

Hello blogland :D
Yes blog I still know your here and No I havent forgotton you...My head for the past couple of weeks just hasnt been in a creative mood until now...Yup since wednesday my mojo had returned from holidays with a little help from my lovin man :D For the past couple of weeks, Ive been pretty down, alot of things were just getting to me, I had all these ideas in my head but just couldnt get it out and creating, tis was very fustrating!! But guess what my awesome stud did???? He came home after work on wedensday and asked me to go out to the car and get his other bag, at first I was like oh ok, he still had a spare hand lol. So I pondered out to the car, opened the boot and lifted up his jacket and underneath was a brand new sewing machine :D OMG!!, He truly does know how to make a gal happy. But that wasnt the end of it, he also organised a years full of sewing lessons for me :D Then if that truly wasnt great enough I then went off to zumba, and danced my big heart out!! Next day I was a new women with new fresh ideas and finally was in the mood Wahoooo. Oh but wait my week got even better... on friday night I went out to bingo with mum and a couple of friends and won myself $200 smack a roons!!!! So thats my excitement for the week. On the family front not too good, both kidlets have the flu, Savannah has it really really bad, mummy's been having no sleep :( Alex has been sick for over a week now and cant seem to shake it and now poor daddy just woke up this morning with a splitting headache and runny nose arhhhh :( and knowing me, i'll prolly get sick next weekend when we are going away :( really hoping I dont :(. Oh some more exciting news, Savannah-Rose started crawling 2 weeks ago and is also sitting up and pulling her self up on things, she going great for 7 months old, but apparently according to the doctor her growth percentile is not where it should be. But to me she is fine, and progressing well. But anyhoos Life is good at the moment and here is my latest creation that I've done for the Kraft It Up Challenge blog (here). The criteria this month is a Monochromatic challenge and of course using Kraft. I used fabric on this layout and sewed it on giving a quilt kinda effect and handcut all my embellishments. I definately enjoyed this challenge. But huge thankyou to my man for releasing my mojo :D Hope you like :D

I also have a few ATC's underway too, so pop back soon
Have a great long weekend people...LEST WE FORGET.

I scrapped finally :D

Happy sunday everyone :D Its a bright beautiful day here on the sunny Gold Coast today, Feeling a bit tired now tho due to the fact I was up bright and early looking for a bargain at our local carboot sale, I just cant resist, I have to go every month LOL, My df thinks I'm a mad women being up so early. But I did manage some awesome buys today and all up only spent $30.00 and got HEAPS!!!
But anyhoos I finally scrapped a layout, I went scrappin friday night with some gf's and I just couldnt get my head to focus on anything!! I was completely fustrated but towards the end of the night I finally decided what I was going to do :D Its very simple but I like it, I think the colours worked really well. Its for a friend of mine, so I really hope she likes it, she's been waiting forever for this layout lol.

I have something exciting happening on my blog real soon, so stay tuned :D Have a wonderful day guys xxxx

Happy Belated Easter :D

Happy Easter every bunny big and small :D I hope you all had a wonderful day full of lots of goodness and many hoppy memories :D Our Easter was very low key this year, non the less we still had an awesome time together. We got to spend 4 whole days with Jamie, this is and was a very rare occasion having him home, an occasion to celebrate in itself lol.
The long weekend began with Alex's Easter bonnet parade, First one ever. Together we had so much fun creating his hat. He was a very proud kid parading around in his mad hatter hat :D Easter Sunday began with an easter egg hunt, Alex and Savannah-Rose's first hunt, although at first alex had no idea, but once he got the hang of it he was having a blast.(Mind you he did wake up the next day, ran outside and started searching all over again, we had to explain to him it only happens on easter lol)So with Savannah-Rose hopping behind him they searced high and low and piled them up in the tonka truck. Then daddy took them inside while the Easter bunny laid a trail leading to their goodies. Alex got a new bike with training wheels and Savannah-Rose got some clothes :D After all a girl can never have too many clothes right? Then the remainder of the day, we were all chilaxing then headed off to the park for the arvo. Here are a few pics to share with you.

Again on the scrappin front I dont have much to share with you. At the moment I am finding it very difficult to take some time out to sit down and scrap. But I have done yet again a few ATC's for various different swaps. First one was a doodling swap(all hand drawn each card) Second was our free local swap here on the coast and third was a something new swap. Hopefully soon I i'll have some scrappin, I'm itching to get some layouts done.

Have a terrific week guys xxx
