Twice in a week - I'm on a roll!

Well hello there! It has been such a busy week for me and I can't believe that it is finally Friday and I can't believe that I am actually blogging twice in one week LOL. I have been so lucky to have special visitors this week - I had my darling niece and her Mum (who is also a dear friend), staying for a couple of nights on their way back home from a holiday. It was so wonderful to see them both and all three of the girls got on like little house fires LMAO! I couldn't get over how alike my niece and Tasha are, in temperament and in looks. Needless to say I took loads of photos.

Anyway I thought that I would post a photo from Mum's birthday dinner the other night - it's a cute photo of Mum (my step-dad & dd are in the pic too!) and you can check out my fab carrot cake (bwahaha!).

On the scrapping front I was thrilled to read about this great challenge over at DesignsInDigital . This is Pauline's challenge to us - "I would love for everyone to get in touch with their own ‘inner beauty’ and create a layout about their beauty. Let’s all feel beautiful and good about who we are and shout it out to the world!". There is a fantastic posting reward if you do a LO and you can read all about it here. Pauline created this challenge after being inspired by Ngaire Bartlem's “Beautiful, Like a Rainbow” project. You can see Ngaire's blog here, it is really inspiring stuff! I very rarely do LOs with myself as the focus and it was pretty confronting but I am happy with the end result -

Well I had best get moving, dinner to cook and the kids to get in the bath, no rest for the weary LOL. Ta ta for now

PS - Happy birthday Maree for Wednesday - hug hug hug hug
