Happy Birthday to me

Thank you to everyone one who emailed, telephoned me or sent me a text message for my birthday, today. I love you all. It was nice to know who loves you on a day when you are feeling every year of their age.

My DH, DD & DS eventually got me a nice new fan, but not just a average fan but a stainless steel bladed fan (#1 setting can almost blow you over if you are standing too close). I LOVE IT! (of course I do I picked it, as usual). My wonderful mum gave me a set of bath sheets in Navy, it covers a multitude a stains that the kids make - my kids use bath towels to clean up paint spills etc instead of paper towels.

My scrapping girlfriends came over for our usual scrapping night and I was surprised that I was the only 1 in PJ's.

I absolutely love the glass balls that Katie gave me, you are just too naughty.

My beautiful friend Sandra gave me a lovely quote book, GJ coffee voucher and a SUPER bubble wand (yes the kids variety, because she knew that I would go nutty over it) I used it on Saturday morning and drove the next door neighbours kids crazy chasing the bubbles as they went over the fence into their yard. I love IT!!!
OOPS I almost forgot to mention the BEAUTIFUL Princess Castle Chocolate Cake that Sandra made from scratch. I don't have photos (thank goodness as I look my age now). You are just too much Sandra - THANK YOU!!!! my friend.

Lastly not to forget the other wonderful friends that share the same birthday with me:
MAYAKLA (Sandra's little girl, who was 3 on Saturday)
Debbie (my friend from my DS school)
I hope you all had a lovely day.

Here is the card that DH,DD & DS gave me (do you think they are maybe scrappers at heart)

1st Day of School Photos


I have been awarded & tagged

I am not sure how this works but a HUGE Thank You to Shandelle for awarding me and tagging me also (3 in total). So please let me know if I have done this wrong - Here goes:
1st is the Creative Funky Friend award!
2nd is The Proximity Award!These blogs believe and invest in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers, who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their awards.

3rd has me Tagged. Here's how it works:
1. Go to the section of your computer where you store all of your photos.
2. Select the 6th folder.
3. Select the 6th photo from that folder.
4. Post and explain about that picture.
5. Tag 6 other people.
Okay so here is the photo from my computer:
Now remember that I am a mother of a teenage daughter and pre-teen son, so I have to share my picture/photo files with them. So this is the 6th pic/phot from the 6th folder in my pictures. It is of our wonderful cat Puddy/Pudda - my husband gave her that name (when we first got her the vet asked him her name and that is all he could think of How Original hey!!) This fleabag (not she doesn't have fleas- she is bathed in our downstairs shower every 2 weeks) I call her that to tease the kids (who doesn't tease their kids???) is now almost 6 years old and the bloody laziest cat I have known, she sleeps more than the 20 hours a cat normally sleeps and only wakes to eat or toilet. Occassionally the kitten in her comes out to play. My DD took this photo a few weeks ago just for the fun of it.

The people I have tag to recieve all 3 of these awards & tags are...
Paula Alcock
(Sorry I don't know 8 people who have blogs to tag who haven't already been tagged previously.)

My friend Helen's display

I was lucky enough to see this wonderful display in person.
This layout is of a photo that Helen took from the Maryborough Outdoor Expo that was held in August 2008. (I pinched it from her blog).

Pop over to her blog and peek at what Helen has been up to lately. Don't forget to log onto her online website for some great products too.

I haven't done this before but I had some insistence from my conscience to do this.

Dear Patrick,

My thoughts are with you & your family during this major fight of your life. I have loved your work since I was an impressionable teenager of just 17 years old.

Dirty Dancing, Black Dog and Ghost will forever be in my top 5 movies of all time.

I look forward to seeing The Beast (TV) in Australia sometime soon.

My prayers are with you & Lisa at this trying time.

Here are a few layouts that I have completed recently

OK, I have done these in the last week.
