Sweet Child

Here's the latest from me. These are my favourite photos of the little guy - and there's one more page to come but I just had to get these up to show him off! He'd win any baby comp for sure I reckon! Thanks for stopping by, luv Me x


Moo and Happy Jack Photos

Hi there! Yes, I know I have been quite slack lately, but I'm trying out a new concept - getting to bed early so I can get some sleep, and it's actually not so bad! I've also started back with an old favourite - excercise... Knew it couldn't last forever, so am trying to make some lifestyle changes. The old breastfeeding advice about 'don't worry the weight will just fall off you; is such c#%p! So - I've managed to run to the grid and back which is 2.5 kms. In light of my bro running the world ironman championships it's pitifull, I know, but I gotta start somewhere! Anyway, here's a few random photos taken over the last couple of weeks just to keep those of you who know us up to date. The selection includes Toby's first solids - pumpkin, Millie feeding a rehabilitated roo, her birthday present from us-a trampoline (we gave it to her early - best spent money ever) patting a python, cooling down on a hot day with Gypsie (btw it was 43 here today...) and my little man in a big man's shirt! Thanks for stopping by. Oh - went to Barcaldine for a day trip on Sat and found a stash of yummy PP's so will be scrappin over the next week and hopefully have lots more to show very soon! Luv Me x

You Grow Girl!

I was looking at the photo of Millie in her party rig and thinking back to this time last year - and about how quickly it's gone, and how much she's grown and changed in 12 short months. Those thoughts were the inspiration for this lo. Not sure if I did them justice or not - I'm not that good yet at making things 'work' and 'flow' , how to cluster embellishments and focus attention etc, but a nice memory for her album. Thanks for stopping by, luv me x


My Everyday Life Con't...

Hello! Here's a few recent pages from my journal. I especially LOVE this photo of Millie with her hair up and smiling - all dressed up and ready for a party. Probably because it's soooo unusual! She's normally sporting a wild 'do' and little or no clothing and never looking at the camera - looking for the most part like a ferral fairy! Here - she's all the little girl! As you can see from the others - no masterpieces (the 's' stuck on the side of Fairy Legs is a bit slack!) but all the little things which make my life shine. Thanks for stopping by, luv Me x


Family Champ

My little bro' - who is actually 4 years older than me (but I have an older bor' so he's my BIG bro - get it!) competed in the WORLD Ironman Championship in Hawaii yesterday and did awesomely (is that a new word?) He came 125th from a field of 1700 and was 22nd in his age group (he's 38) - so a BIG congratulations to my awesome bro who is such a legend for being able to do what he did. I think those jeans skipped me...

Here's the latest. Thanks for stopping by, luv Me xxx



Finally! I've finished my page in my cj for Melissa's swap. It took me a while - scrapper's block, but managed this today. The theme for it is "I Must Confess" and for more info on that, scroll down to one of my earlier posts. Thanks for stopping by! Luv Me x


Lesson with Melissa Corbett

I participated in a great on-line class yesterday with Melissa from Scrapworld - and here's the results. She's absolutely a wiz when it comes to layering paper and embellishing! If you want to do one, head over to Scrapworld and check out their classroom. Thanks for stopping by! Luv me x

DM Disaster..

Ok, so here's another Lo for Toby's album. I'v ehad these chipboard flourished for ages, and have been staring at them, wondering how I was ever going to use them (they looked so good on-line...) The thought of covering them in paper and then having to cut themout again just seemed sooo tedious - so I decided to do the lazy thing, and use them plain! Which was going ok, until I decided to add Dimensional Magic (DM) to parts of them, and well, as you can see, thoroughly wrecked it! Aaagh - yuk yuk! But I really love the top left hand part with the photo and PP's! Anyway - note to self, don't use DM on plain chipboard ever again... Thanks for stopping by, luv Me x


Tina's Random Photo Challenge!

This is one I did for a challenge over at Life Love Paper (check out her link in my list). It was to scrap those random photos that wouldn't normally end up in an album or ever get scrapped. Ever wondered how our little people look at the world? Just give them a camera and you'd find out - I did! These are Millie's first shots taken on my camera. Except, the camera was a wee bit too heavy for her and it kept taking a nose dive each time she went to depress the button, hence me having to ly on the ground to get into the picture! But-none the less, they're her shots, taken totally by her. I just love them! I especially love the one of her baby toes - so sweet. Thanks for stopping by, luv Me x


I See...

My latest LO - thanks mostly to Tiddlypeep for the beautiful fabric and ribbons - you're a legend! Thanks for stopping by, luv Me x
