12 days later ....... sigh!

Well I finally made it back here to post - I have been pretty flat out since getting back from our quick trip to Townsville and it seems like every time I sat down to blog something else more important came up! but here I am sneaking in a clandestine few moments between piles of laundry (still waiting to be put away from last weekend) and the vacuum cleaner that is currently sitting on the floor near me reproaching me in silence. I would like to post some of my recent pages as it seems to me that my blog has been taken over by my project 365 (which I am still going with!!) and I am not getting to show off my new things!

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

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*

Everything about you makes me Smile!

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!!

This is what Happy looks like!

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

No I haven't fallen off the Project 365 wagon......

But I have been a bit slack at the posting of my photos and posting on my blog - sorry! I have managed to keep up my photos daily so far except for one day where my migraine shattered me and I took a pile of pills and went to bed.

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!
