I am going to come back a bit later and do some CT page posting as I am pretty behind posting about that but before I go I just want to share with you a little freebie that I made for the August Pickleberrypop newsletter using the gorgeous Pickleberrypop Collab Playful Reverie if you are interested. Its a desktop for September and its available in three sizes including Widescreen. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out and I have put it on my own computer and thing it looks pretty cute (if I do say so myself hahahaha) ............. if you like it you can grab it from the Pickleberrypop store here.
Well I hope I'll be back later - but for now I am going to head off and do some catching up with my friends blogs! Put the kettle on guys I'm popping in ROFL!
26 July 2009
But first off I am going to catch up with some of my project 365 pages - I know I am sadlly behind with these but I spent a bit of time this weekend catching up. My pages are not terribly fancy and I have kept the decorations very plain. I still have a couple of weeks to do but I am a LOT closer than I was to finally catching up than I was yesterday lol.
So without further ado here are some of my outstanding pages:
Phew I feel so much better now those are off my chest lol - I still have a couple of weeks to go before I catch up but I'm getting there. I am totally surprised with myself that I have continued to keep up with my Project 365 - I have made it half way through the year! It's all down hill from here!
In scrapping news I was very flattered and excited to be invited by the delightful Dawn Inskip to be on her Creative Team - I have always enjoyed scrapping with her kits since she joined PBP's design team and I have tried to use everyone she put out - so I guess we are just formalising our realtionship hahaha.
Now since the last time I posted and now I have scrapped a fair few pages and I think it would be really unkind of me to put you through looking at them all so I will just post a couple of my particular favorites and leave the rest.
And lastly I promised you a sneak peek at PBP Birthday Celebrations -
July 30th is PBP's 3rd Birthday and we are having a huge party to celebrate! Here is a sneak peek at one of the things the team has been busy preparing - it's another HUGE collaborative kit!
Now I can't say too much or it will ruin the surprise but I CAN say that you will definitely NOT want to miss out on this celebration - so leave so time free to come on over and play along with the challenges and games that we will have on - you never know what you might win!!!
All right I have droned on enough for one post - I'll be back later on with my last couple of Project 365 pages I ummmmm promise???? lol
22 June 2009
So here are some of my recent pages for your viewing pleasure - at least I hope your enjoy them *wink*
This page was made with the scrummy collab between FruitLoOp Sally and Tracey Stroud called Peppermint Smoothie available at PBP
Here is my latest page using the lovely goodies from Cherpea Designs at Two Little Pixels - this is from her lovely kit Danielle!
This page was made using Cherpea Designs new kit Anya - it has such lovely pinks and browns! It's available now at 2LP.
This was my first page as a CT member for Cherpea Designs - I love the rich green colour of the paper and the fun and funky alpha!! It was perfect for this cute photo of Tasha with her new hair cut!
This page is a scraplift of this page created by the talented Kaye (nockosh) for our June Scraplift Challenge over at Pickleberrypop - you should come over and have a go at this challenge as you could win $10 GC to the Pickleberrypop Shop *wink*
I made this page using the delightful kit Candy Lane by Joanne Bain - there are some really lovely elements and papers in this kit! Yummy!!
This page was created for the June 10 by 10 Challenge over at Pickleberrypop and I scrapped my own bucket list! Such a fun and challenging challenge (lol) and I encourage you to give it a go and you might win a $10 GC to the store!!
I made this page using the fun new template Deb Fisher has created - they were so great to use and I really loved how the bright papers from Deb's Happiness kit make the circles just pop!!
Phew - glad that's off my chest - I told you it had been a while since I posted anything other than Project 365 pages and I bet you are sick of looking at my pages now LOL. Well I hope to be back here soon with some P365 pages - I am a bit behind with those at the moment as I have sooooo many photos to edit from our trip to Townsville that I am trying to get through!
I have to tell you though we had a great time in Townsville - the weather was just gorgeous (as only winter in Townsville can be), the company was delightful and the kids were pretty much well behaved (LOL). We really did have a lovely time, we reminisced about the good 'ol days, we walked along the Strand, went up Castle Hill, strolled along the Riverway Boardwalks, the kids swam in the pools there, we visited with old friends, got together with family, had photos taken (by me eeek!), ate yummy seafood and just pretty much Chill-axed (apparently thats a word young people use these days ROFL) as much as we could!
We might have to go for a week next time as the girls wanted to go over to magnetic island and drive up to Crystal Creek and we didn't have time :)
Our next adventure is happening this weekend coming as we head up to the Bunya Mountains for a weekend of eating, drinking, sleeping, bush walking, bird feeding and relaxing! I'm hoping that the weather will take a steep plunge downwards before we leave so that we can snuggle in frount of the log fire place. We are staying there with two other families, who are our best friends, and their kids and it should be a blast! And the best bit is that there will even MORE photos to edit when I get back hahahaha - hmmm I might have to invest in a bigger XD card for my camera at this rate LOL
Well thanks for sticking with me in my rambles - I really had better get some housework done! So I will bid you all a fond adieu!
10 June 2009
It's a fly by posting from me I'm afraid - I will try to get updated after we get back from our trip up to Townsville. We are leaving on Friday and are going to have a fabulous time catching up with family and friends! We haven't been back to Townsville in 8 years and I can't wait to see how the old place has changed! It's a wonderful opportunity for the girls to see where Mum and Dad met and were we lived. I imagine that I will take lots and lots and lots of photos - enough to tide me over until the next time we get up there!
Anyway I won't ramble on - I have sinus and an earache at the moment and all I want to do is go to bed so here are the past two weeks Project pages and i will bid you all a fond farewell!!

Oh before I go I just wanted to share with you the exciting news that Cheryl of Cherpea Designs invited me to be part of her CT! I was just thrilled as I have been a fan of Cheryl's for a while! So of course I said YES! more about this later when I can share some pages I have made recently! I have a new blinkie to add to my collection over on the right!

I have realised that I don't have a lot of interesting knick knacks around my house to take photos of though and I thought that I should maybe invest in some to give me more stuff to photograph *grin*. I somehow don't think hubby will be very agreeable with that idea so I might pass for now. I am hoping to do a self portrait this week so you can tell me if my face is looking any thinner hahahaha as I can't really see any difference but then again I see myself every day.
I just wanted to say that I had a fabulous time at the Pickleberrypop Casual Chat on Friday night - the girls are all such a laugh and it was wonderful to chat, listen to great 80's music and discuss the love interests of Bob the Builder (you really had to be there!). They really are a great bunch of girls and I can't recommend enough that you come along and join us this time next month for a another fabulous evening of fun and laughter!
Ok that's it from me today - I have loads of housework to do now that it has stopped raining here and things are starting to dry out. It was just too hard to do the housework with the kids stuck inside as they made a mess as quickly as I tried to tidy up. In the end I gave up and plonked myself down in front of the computer for the rest of the weekend and caught up on my blog hopping LOL. I am trying hard to air out my car at the moment too as it still smells from the mini flooding it got last week - I have sprinkled Bi-Carb of Soda all over the carpets in an effort to de-stench it! But at least it didn't float away so I am not complaining one little bit! Ok that's good-bye from me for today!
24 May 2009
I would like to post some of the pages that I have scrapped this week - I went on a bit of a scrapping bender late in the week and this is the result :)
using Olga Unger's great new Sea Paradise
inspired by the Carpenter's song :) and using Dawn Inskip's fab new Strawberry Crush
using Joanne Bain's delicious new kit Beachy Treasure
Oh and I found these two pages that I created at the end of last week but forgot to post!
using Joanne Bain's adorable new kit - Summer Dayz
using FruitLoOp Sally's Organic Artisty
I'm a bit stunned to see that I have scrapped 5 pages in the space of a week and a couple of days! If I keep this up I am going to fall into a mojo rut soon rofl!
Well that is all from me today - I will be back tomorrow with this week's Project page and I can say that with confidence because it's all finished except for todays photo LOL so I will have no excuse hahaha.

It's been a busy week really with lots going on at home and work. I had Tasha home sick on Monday, a busy day at work on Tuesday and then Wednesday this week was particularly exciting/scary when we had the biggest "rain event" here in Brisbane since the 70's (so I have heard). There was so much rain that we had widespread flooding across the city. At work my car is parked in a side street and all morning the water ran down the road steadily. but after staying at the gutter level all morning it suddenly rose high enough to put an inch of water in my car.
I ran out and moved my car to higher ground in the street (soaking my shoes and my trousers to the knees in the process) only to find that when I went to leave work that afternoon I had to wade through thigh deep water just to get out of my work place. Here is what the road where I was parking in the morning looked like when I went home - can you see a gap between two submerged cars on the left hand side? That is where I WAS parked - omg!
At the end of the trees is a main intersection and it was just chaos down there, detours helped ease the problem though. Wow what a day! The trip home was exciting as a few streets on the way home were closed. I can't complain though, so many people lost their household possessions and their cars! So I am really lucky!
Anyway - it's late and I will come back and post some pages that I have made tomorrow! I promise! tata!
