Help! I've been tagged!

The delightful Carol (who adores memes!) tagged me the other day and while I am really bad at playing these things I like Carol soooooooo hahahah! So just for you Carol here we go .......

What food do you consider the best "date" food? In other words what meal or food item do you think is sexiest to eat in the company of someone you would like to look sexy around?
Never one to contradict my friends but – Carol! NOT Calamari! Have you ever had a chewy piece stuck between your teeth? Or had that uber-rubbery piece that snaps and then ricochets across the table at your date? The perfect date food has to be chocolate mousse! Rich and creamy and decadent!

What well-known person would you like to share a meal with—with or without clothing. (saying whether or not clothes are involved is optional).
Ummmm this is a no-brainer! Orlando Bloom – sigh! I wonder if he would wear his elf ears for me and not much else ???? hahahahahaha

What does your perfect breakfast-in-bed look like? (Food AND the details, please. Candles? Music? Flowers? Hot tub? Dancing girls?
My perfect breakfast in bed would be served by Orlando and would be Eggs Benedict and a nice cup of brewed coffee! I would of course be about 30 kgs lighter and be wearing little more than a smile and a bit of lacey nonsense – ahhhh bliss!

What do you consider the best application of whipped cream to be?
Used as a fig leaf shaped blob somewhere on Orlando!

Oh-God-No, Biff, the yacht is sinking! You are sent to the galley to retrieve the food. What luxury food items do you snatch first? The champagne? The caviar? Smoked Salmon? Truffles? Chocolate? Or something else?
I’m with Carol here …. Its definitely save the Chocolate Captain! And perhaps grab a nice bottle of something alcoholic on the way past the bar fridge, just to keep Orlando and I busy while we wait for rescue!!

So there you go - I did it Carol! Now who to tag back hmmmmmmm

Well really there are only a couple of people who I feel comfortable enough to tag
Firstly, I'm tagging my wonderful friend Natalie, who I would never have met if it wasn't for this fabulous hobby that we share, and
the delightful and hilarious Vixen, who I adore and who makes me laugh even when I'm down.

And I'm done hahahahaha - I've meme'd!

And now on to a bit of family stuff!

Now my girls haven't had push bikes before because we live in a very hilly area (I know I'm a bad parent) but recently we decided to get them each a bike and we took them down to the local park for a practice run. Now bare in mind that my oldest girlie is 10 and you can imagine that she was a bit nervous but she was a real trooper and took to it so well! Tasha loved it, and while she despises her training wheels she was thrilled to be shooting off around the corners leaving poor old Mum and Dad following along in her dust!

Here are a couple of photos I took just to prove I haven't forgotten how to take pics and because I was so proud of them!!

A wobbly start!

But soon, getting more stable!

Look at meeeeee Mum!

And before we know they are off! heading for the next bend in the road and leaving us in their dust!

And what is a post without a LO ahahahaha. This is using the wonderfully versitile Spring Magic kit by Natalie and Sharon

Ok - I think that is me for today except one last thing............

On ANZAC Day and every day,

we should remember their sacrifices for us and for our freedom -

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.

Lest we forget.

goodbye for now.

Autum? But with a bit of Spring Magic

That's right friends, Spring has come again to my little part of the web! Well at least in the form of a super fun Collab kit called Spring Magic..... and can I say how very excited I am to be able to present this to you! When Natalie told me she was doing a surprise collab with someone I had a great time guessing but I was so thrilled to find out that she was doing it with the wonderfully talented Sharon -ksharonk designs - whose blog I have happily stalked for AGES!

Isn't it lovely???

If you like it, click on the image and it will take you straight to the Pickleberry Pop shoppe!

And here is a LO I did with it - I couldn't wait to get in and use it, the colours are sooooo beautiful! It's just for my friend Carol, who loved this picture of my kitty when I was posting my 365 photos LOL

Oh and I did a Vintage LO using Anna's lovely Vintage Lace Alpha too - for you, Mum.

Time flies!

WOW time certainly does fly doesn't it, especially the older you get! It seems like only yesterday that I posted but it was in fact 10 days ago! Well I had a busy week and a fun weekend, I did housework, washed clothes, aged a year, did some scrapping and ate cake LOL! Hmmmm you would almost think it was my birthday LOL!!! Yes it was and I was really spoiled by my friends and family. I had cake and lovely pressies at work on Friday and on Saturday (the day!) I got some fabulous gifts from my family including this little beauty..........

Yay! I've been bamboo-zled! I am having such a good time playing with it!

My wonderful hubby also took me out for dinner and we shared a romantic seafood platter for two! Mind you saying that, I challenge anyone to be all sweet and romantic while cracking a crab claw!

It was a really great day and I felt so happy at the end of it that I had to scrap something! Well I had this brilliant new kit of Natalie's sitting on my HD called Oh Happy Day (which seemed like a sign to me!) and Tasha took a nice pic of me on my birthday so I put the two together and voila, here it is, my Happy Birthday LO to me hahahahahahahaha!

So other than that not much is going on here, the kids are back at school after their week off and the routine has gone back to where it should be, mayhem reigns once more!

To quote a sweet friend of mine, Ahhhhh life is good! Thanks Kristie!

Some exciting news!

My wonderful friend, Anna Benjamin of Paper Moons fame has begun selling her products at Scrapbook Graphics in her very own spot Studio Anna!

I am so excitied for her, she has worked really hard to get here and I am so glad that it has all worked out so well for her. Have a look at some of her beautiful products......

Spilled Milk

Preppy in Pink

Added to this excitment Anna has invited me to be on her CT! Well of course I said YES! LOL!

But I can't tell you how this makes me feel! One of my pals Carol said it really beautifully on her blog, when she said that she never thought that this would happen to her! It is the same for me! I never imagined that the hobby that I love so much would bring me to this point, where I am on TWO CTs! I am so very lucky to be a CT member for two people whose work I admire and who are people that I like a heck of a lot! I need someone to pinch me I think!

So without further ado, here are a couple of LOs I made for Anna's grand opening at SBG!

Perfectly Perfect
