This man.....

May has been  a  bit of an unusual month for me.  I am a pretty happy  cheery person most of the time ...but this past monht has been a bit hard.  Ive  felt flat and a bit  BLAAARRRGGGHHHH.....I havent had any contact with  any of my girls on the Goldy ( unusual for me ) and  Ive  dropped out of facebook for the past few weeks as well.   So Ive  decided enough is enough.....I need to shake myself out of this funk and get  on with it!!! 
I just spent an awesome  weekend  at the Wicked Princesses  retreat ( Thanks to my hubby  who sent me to cheer me up- Gawd love him!!)   and I laughed until I cried, I stayed up all night  -  YES  ....AGAIN!!!

So over the next week or so I will share what I have done.....Here is the last layout I did.  We set ourselves a challenge to pick a random layout from the latest scrapbooking memories mag and each do a scraplift to see how  different  they are.....Here is my take......

The lift was from  the last SM mag - Page 29  Thanks  Kaitlynne Roil from NSW - we  scraplifted your  Oh brother layout!!!!  Hope you dont mind!!!

Ill be back with more tomorrow

May sketch at Scrap with V

Okey  dokey - so the new sketch is up over at Scrap with V.....it took a while  for me to get this one done ....but I perservered  because I love the sketch - I just didnt want to ruin it!!!

Here is the sketch

and here is my  take on it.  I used  one of the photos from Shanes graduation

Im not sure that I could  be any prouder  of this man!!  Have I mentioned that he graduated with Honours, won the university medal and also came  Number  6  out of his class of  close to 150 !!!!

legend huh!!!

Anyway - these stunning papers on this layout are Bo bunny Gabrielle and you can  get them  HERE
So come and join the  sketch fun !!  Ness  has two a month and offers  amazing prizes!!!!

This is another one I managed on the weekend - I just love these colours!!!

and  you have  to love a dyed doily!!!

So nice to get out!!!

I was lucky enough to score an invitation to Giovanna Scotts  place on Saturday night for a crop.  I loved it!!  Most of you would know I ususally have crops  here so  to be invited somewhere else was a fabulous   change!!  I  even ventured to  places unexplored on the north side of Brisbane!!  Appropriately known as THE GAP!!  Gorgeous women and Gigi  cooked  us a beautiful dinner and we laughed  a lot!!

here is one of the creations I managed that night.  These are really   really old  Kaiser papers but I am determined to work my way through some of my hoard!!!  I have had this  photo of the  beautiful son number 3 - Daniel and I  thought the colours  fit well!!

Ill be back later  in the week  with some more!!!

Do you want a COOL new challenge - photo related!!!!

Hi all

I  was  sent a fabulous  email last week  all the way from Germany - Andrea and Steffie are starting a new challenge  blog which I think is fabulous - the  topic is Self portrait and  on the first Friday each month - we will be set a  photography  challenge!!!    They have asked me to join the design team and of course I said Yes because I  NEVER take many photos of me and I thought a challenge blog to help me  do it would be perfect!!

SO  come and join the BLOG HERE and make sure you spread the word  on your own blog  and I will  draw a random winner for a cool RAK!!!!  Message me here and let me know that you have posted  this on your blog !!  I will draw a winner in the middle of May!!

Good luck and Happy  snapping!!!

Two little girls - Twiddleybitz

Oh man - this year is going so fast.  There are  lots of things we didnt calculate when choosing  to have four childen!!  Things like the  amount of sport and dancing and  after school activites   there would be,   the amount of  kids birthday parties they would be invited to, the amount of Doctors and dentists  visits they would need, the amount of shopping for new school shoes and  clothing, the  school camps they would go on and associated costs.........blah blah blah!!!

ALl of those things  mean that all of a sudden May is upon us and and Im not quite sure where the year has  gone already!  And it also means that I dont get to  scrap nearly half as much as Im used to!!
But luckily I had a little mojo  kick in and I got to play  with some  gorgeous Twiddleybitz  pieces and I managed this  little number.
My sister and I  - I am  the one at the front!
