My girl is My gorgeous daughter Cherie celebrating her 25th birthday last year. She's come home for 12-18 months to save to build her own house.
The second one is the Sketch Lo. Both challenges are set by our gorgeous Miss Kym. This one is of my equally gorgeous youngest daughter Melissa and her boyfriend Todd. We had gone over to Melbourne to celebrate our nephews 30th birthday (which is the same day as Melissa's) and the two of them were goofing around.

I've been able to get four LO's done last month. This first one was for one of Artistic Documents Cyber Crop challenges. (Terri's Traditional Travel). this was a trip we made with my sister and brother -in-law last November to Tocumwal for golfing. As you can see, Sis and I didn't play golf we ate instead.
this next one was for the Blindscrap challenge (which i won, Thanks Toni) the pic was of me having my Starbuck coffee in Penang. Hubby and i have started a tradition of having a starbucks coffee when we go on holidays. so far we have had one in Singapore, Sydney, Hawaii and Penang Oh and Glenelg in SA.(we stayed there for three nights for a short getaway and had a ball.)
And this one is another of Terri's challenge's. Apparantly i inspired her with what techniques and what ingredients she wanted us to use (which is basically everything i buy but never use) So Thank you Terri you made me get off my butt and put some purchases to use. lol. We had to use alcohol ink on chipboard and embossing (eg cuttle bug or big shotz), masking and journalling.

This one is, as the title suggests, My husband. I took the photo when we were in Penang in April.
Another Christmas LO (Christmas in July) My hubby and two girls showing off some of their pressies.
And last bu not least This Lo is to celebrate our best friends 50th birthday. Again this was while we were in Penant. I not long ago bought T!m Holtz Compendium of Curiosities book and tried a few of his techniques. I got the RLOTW las week for this one. So that really made my week. Will show the birthday boy the Lo on the weekend when we catch up.

Well hubby and i have been organizing quotes to do some renos around the house, 3 down 6 or 7 to go. the 2 main things we want to do is New kitchen and pergola extension. Its all very exciting and tiring at the same time so heaven help me when the work actually starts.
I've done a couple of lo this month and this is the latest one. The pics are of my best girlfriennd and I while we were on holiday in Penang. The Lo was for Terri's puzzle piece challenge over at Artistic Document.

the sessions. needless to say i have come away with my head spinning with ideas and slightly (very) tired. I love catching up with these girls as they all have great ideas and a gold mine of information on diofferent techniques. We are planning another catch up in Novemeber when my darling sister-in-law is over for a week. So we will be doing more shopping and definately more chatting.
Well i think i have bored you enough so i'm signing off and going to snuggle up with hubby for the evening.

This first one is of my honey Gary (on the left) and the birthday boy, Pete enjoying a cigar to celebrate Pete's 50th birthday. Neither of them have smoked for nearly 20 - 28 years but boys being boys they had to have one. lol this one is one of the sunsets we were priveliged to view. Each night was different but just as stunning as the last.

I can't believe we are nearly finished the Magical Musical Bus Tour. We had our last Challenge uploaded this morning and the last mini challenge was uploaded last night. The mini one was to use scraps from one of our previous challenges and decorate a note book (which is just below) and this weeks Challenge theme is "The bridal Waltz". We have to use white and cream, use textures, a three word title, a sub title and we may use tiny touches of gold, silver or black if necessary. The examples the DT have supplied are jaw droppingly beautiful.

Again another great challenge. Some of the entries are fantastic with a few girls using pics of their grandparents in the 1920's which is fabulous. I just love looking at some of those old pics and thinking about what life would have been like back then.

MY girlfriend Vicki and I left for Melbourne Friday morning. Got stuck in traffic on the way down but still got there in plenty of time only to find out our flight had been cancelled. We were put onto a 12pm flight which eventually left at 12.40pm. We got there safely had a taxi drive from hell and got dropped off at the wrong hotel. But it only got better from there. WE shopped Friday night after stopping and having a drink at my neices cafe. walked throught china town and had tea on the corner of burke and russel sts. Italian. yummy.
The next day my daughter and her friends flew over got picked up by my niece and then my sisiter-in-law arrived at the hotel and we all met up at Max Brenners for brunch. We headed back to the Hotel to get ready for our real reason for being in Melbourne. MAMMA MIA. What a fantastic stage show. we went to the matinee showing and the girls got to get one of the actors autographs after the show. Then we went back to our room for drinks and munchies before walking to Lygon st for Tea. Italian again i had a chicken dish which was scrumptious. after us oldies went back to our room again and chatted until 2.15am.
We were up and out by 10am and at the blue train for breakie then wandered throught the casino to show Vicki what it was like and then to South Wharf DFO. Then Noriel and her darling Hubby and kids drove us all back to the airport to see us off. What a weekend! Can't wait to do it again.

The Black and white Lo is for the MMT challenge. This weeks challenge was Classical. B & white or cream, flourishes, chandeleirs and or damask, rub-ons pearls. I love this pic of hubby and my eldest daughter but her reaction to the LO is "oh that is lovely except for that picture". KIDS! It was the last pic taken on christmas day before we headed to bed. Oh well thats her bad luck and i'm happy with them.
