Weekend update!

Hi all!

I hope everyone is enjoying this gorgeous weekend.
It sure is so noice to see the sun shining!
I have been super busy over the last couple of weeks so not a lot of scrapping has been done. We had a weekend in Sydney last weekend as my D.D had a specialist appt so we turned it into a mini holiday & took in all the sights & did all the tourist We even went to the N.S.W Art Gallery. That is so not something I would have been interested in a couple of years ago. BUT hey I must be growing up...LOL...OR getting old more like it.
Enough of the rambling.
I will share my couple of pages that I have created. The first is a page that I created last night. I am so lucky! I purchased a Cricut machine from work at SCRAPSIDAISY & the lovely Leisa upgraded it to an Expression for me. So last week I got an early birthday pressie!! WoooHOOO.....I'm excited. Anyway with all the events of the last couple of weeks I really hadn't had the opportunity to have a decent play! Last night I pulled it out & set it up on its very own little table & away I went. I cut out all different arrows & alphas to create this-

I LOVE this pic of Brock....BUT the smile is not looking like that at the moment....Insert sad face!!! This arvo he accidently hit himself in the face with a tennis racket & broke off one of those gorgeous top teeth....another sad face......after many phone calls to Dr's & dentists it has now been decided that he doesn't NEED a dentist today & that it can wait until Monday morning & he will se a dentist to have it fixed.........:-( :-( :-( :-( :-(...lets just hope that it can be!!!!
This is a page that I did a couple of weeks ago. Using the yummy M.M Noteworthy range!
If you are still reading....THANKS...I hope you have a good one

You know you are old when.......

You are are "GREAT Aunty"....LOL. This is a pic of my gorgeous sister who became a Grandma yesterday for the first time. Can you see how proud she is? My nephew (Grandma's son) Chris & his partner, Carly, welcomed Liliana into the world yesterday afternoon. She is a little unwell but nothing too serious really & we are all busting to have cuddles. I am so happy for the family & excited for my Sister & brother in law. They will be the bestest grandparents.
Onto scrapping now- I have still had the mojo happening & have finished off a few pages over the weekend. Challenge 9 & 10 at SCRAPSIDAISY Forum & a couple of others. I will share with you now. I feel as if I am rambling on here....

This page of my D.D I created using 3 Bugs In A Rug (Luke & Lola) paper range, Die cuts, Bella blossom, Kaiser bling, Basic Grey stamps & my trusty black pen.
This page of "Me" I used the following goodies- Basic Grey "Sugared" papers & Element stickers, Maya Road chip letters, Dew Drop inks, Dimensional magic, Making Memories Edge distresser, Bella blossom & Cosmo Cricket rubon.
This is Challenge No.9 over at the Scrapsidaisy FORUM. Below is my attempt at the challenge.

I really enjoyed creting this page. I used heaps of Making Memories blossoms, buttons & felt. The other supplies were- Scenic Route "Grafton" p.p's, Deja Views wonderful words, Bella alphas, Hambly rubons & Black pen.

This is challenge NO.10- I got in a little earlier with this one. Below is my attempt as well.
I used Scenic Route p.p's (I know again!) Scenic Route stencil grid alphas, Basic Grey stamps & my fave of all time BLACK
If you are still reading THANK YOU! I am off to create another page & make a few cards to give to my new little "Great Niece"
Thanks for visiting & have a lovely week.
