Nothing much doing here, we have moved but are still in a huge mess. Just in the process of buying some new furniture etc and getting some storage to go in the wardrobes. And the best bit, I now have a whole scrap corner in the office and it is a mess already. I scrapped today, can't share sorry, but I guess you will see it soon enough. Anyways, did I tell you how excited I am that I have my own scrap space!!!!!
Will be back tomorrow or Saturday to share my daughter's exciting news - CIAO!!!!!

Michelle has a new Etsy store and to celebrate is giving some of these away on her blog.
Go and have a looksee and leave a comment to be in the running to win some of these cute buttons, I have, good luck. Here is the link to her store - Lil' Red Rocket, those buttons would look so cute on a layout.

These five LO's were from Sheree McGee's class from the retreat, how gorgeous are they? I didn't do the classes, but purchased the kit and here is the results.
This was the April Boxx of Scraps kit and I used the first Inspired Blueprints sketch (#35) for November to do this LO. Gee my hubby is a good looker, must remember to tell him.
Thanks girls for the lovely weekend, I had a blast. A huge thankyou to Lesa and Tracey who organised the retreat for us, it was just a friends only retreat, no affiliation to any shop, they just did it out the goodness of their hearts. You are two very special ladies.

Unfortunately there is absolutely nothing to show on the scrap front at the moment. We are moving house in 2 weeks, so have been slowly packing up the house, and over the last few days have been packing up my scrap stuff. Huge job, I have sorted all my papers and embellies and given a heap to Megs and taken the rest into school. My retreat gear has been packed for weeks now, so hopefully will have some LO's to share when I get home. I am taking one of Sheree McGee's class packs from the Scrapboxx retreat I went to in March, I think it has about 6 LO's to do. Hopefully that will get the creative juices flowing.
So I guess I shall see you all when I get home.

On Saturday the 3rd of February, on a very “normal”day in our normal, happy life, our World was shattered. In short, our beautiful daughter Ava got into our car which was, unusually, parked in full sun in the middle of the day. She had been with Grandad who lives next door (we have one wall around both properties) and said she was returning to my house but in fact went searching for something in the car. We always lock it. Just not that day. Once she got in she shut the door and was not able to find her way back out.
Our princess fought so bravely for two days in ICU but on Monday the 5th of February, she flew to Heaven.
Words can never express the pain in our heart or the void we feel. It makes no sense but we are so grateful to have had her for three years and we will continue to work very hard to provide our other three children a wonderful childhood filled with happy memories.
Ava, my amazing, sweet, clever Super Princess..I miss you with every ounce of my being. I love you to the moon and back.

I knew I was having a layout published, but had no idea it was going to be a WHOLE PAGE! I did this page as a challenge at The Boxx retreat in Augusta, Western Australia in March this year. We had to use the packaging off some paper packs, a stationary tag and a Tim Holtz Grungeboard number. The photo was taken on the beach at Peregian, New Years Eve 2008 with Ash's best mate Brad. Ash was a bit embarassed when he saw the mag.
Here is the layout -
And finally, this was the first LO I had published in Scrapbooking Memories a few months back. Photo was taken on the same day as above, guess the scrap mags like my hubby - LOL!!!! I used scrummy October Afternoon papers and the journalling block was given to me by my gorgeous scrap buddy Tammy Templeton. She designs chipboard under her Pumpkin Pink label for Stuff to Scrap. Thanks Tam.

Over the last month I have been madly getting together my entry for the Scrapping Outback Mini Masters. We had to prepare a Monochromatic layout including at least 2 photos, a double layout including at least 4 photos, a mini album and a layout using only goodies from the pack provided. Well the good news is I have scored a guest DT spot for a month out of the comp. A big congrats to Leanne Triggs who was the overall winner. Your entry was gorgeous and you are a well deserved winner.
One of my entries was picked up by Scrapbooking Memories, but here are the other three -
Thanks so much Rachelle, Sandra, Jules and Trudi for all your hard work. We finished the comp last night with a cybercrop which was a hoot. The forum ladies are all so much fun.
I'll be back tomorrow with an update on the kids.
I can't believe I survived my first real post.
