Can't believe how time flies by so quickly. We are half way through September and i don't think i've done any scrapping. I did make two cards but forgot to take pics. One was for Fathers day and the other was for my mums birthday. better not tell you how old. We took her out to tea with my brother and his family. It was fun catching up altogether. We gave her a ticket to see the Russian Ballet perform The Nutcracker. Teased her a bit saying she was going on her own. lol. She was over the moon.

Well the Renos have started. I am sitting in an extremely empty study. There is only the desk that the computer sits on. All my scrapping and craft stuff is either in the garage or in the spare room until hubby gets to paint in here. A couple of before and during pics

The lunatic in the bottom pic is my darling daughter. Never misses a photo opportunity. lol. It looked like a bomb had gone off when i walked in the door from work. I just keep reminding myself IT IS FOR THE GREATER GOOD. not for man kind obviously buthubby wants me happy. god i love him.

Well i've rabbitted on enough for tonight. i'm off next week so hopefully i'll get a chance to scrap.

Caio for now.

Well another nothe has gone by and i've remembered to putup a new post. Well the renovation work that i mention last time has begun and as far as the kitchen side of things are concerned we will be living out of boxes for the next 6 weeks. Oh well it will all be worth it. Didn't believe it Thursday night when hubby and i were cleaning til 10pm. Wont be getting my scrapping room back in order for at least two weeks so i'l be carting things in and out each night. :(

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.)
this one was the colour challenge for our regular monthly challenges (this is Kyms Challenge) The colours were pink teal and white. The two love birds in the pic are my youngest daughter and her boyfriend at her 21st birthday.

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.

So thats all i have done this last month, not very exciting. Ohh but i did go and see The Sorcerer's Apprentice. Brilliant light hearted movie. I won a double pass to see the preview screening and took the youngest daughter with me. We had a really good laugh. make sure you go and see it.
