Back to School

I hope everyone has been enjoying this beautiful weather that we have been having. It sure has been a nice way to spend the end of the school holidays. The kids went back to school this morning & boy did I find it difficult to get out of bed early. The kids were so excited to be going back too.

Anyway I won't ramble on too much as I have a load of housework that I should be doing. I just wanted to do a quick post to say hello & to share a few pages that I created over the weekend.
I have also been having BIG Drama's with my internet so if I haven't popped by to say hello I promise I will soon.
Here are my latest creations-

Check out the new Bella alphas. They are so yummy. I had to use them straight away...LOL. The papers that I used are Kaiser papers & they are divine too.
I had fun with my Cricut again.
I told you I liked the alpas..lol.....I had to use them again.
Have great week & I will catch you all real soon.

Have you checked out the new challenge from Pagemaps on the Scrapsidaisy Forum? If not you should. Its not hard to join in the fun. So come on over & have a look see!
This is the new map for Challenge number 15 & my version of the map-

Thank you to everyone that sent me Birthday wishes last week. It sure was one very special day. & haw spoilt was I!!!!
The Kids are still on school holidays at the moment & boy am I enjoying the sleep ins. I have even managed a few early nights this week. The kiddies have been super well behaved, which helps & we have been keeping super busy. The weather has been lovely too so that is always a bonus.
I will share my pages from the weekend. I even managed to create a canvas for on of my Great Nieces 1st birthday. I created it in less then an hour so I am pretty happy with how it turned out!

I am still a novice with my Cricut BUT over the weekend I managed to work out how to shadow my titles so I am EXCITED!!!

This layout is DAISY the Dairy cow. A few posts back I mentioned Daisy was the new cow that my Kiddies named after the ever so lovely Scrapsidaisy...LOL...so of course I had to scrap a layout about her....he he he.

My Daughter took this pic of me on the camera that she got for Christmas & I guess that is how they see me. Aren't the Dream street papers yummo!

This pic of Brock is a laugh! The papers are Kaiser & they are lush as well!

Maddy went with her BIG GIRL cousins to HSM On Ice earlier in the year so I had to scrap that TOO!
Well that has been a very long post. I am grateful if you are still reading...LOL. So thanks again for stopping by & be sure to leave a comment to let me know that you were here.
Have a great week

I'm feeling loved!!!!!!

Today I celebrated my Birthday & boy ohhh boy do I feel loved!

I am such a lucky girl to have so many caring Friends & such loving family. I, to say the least, have been extremely spoilt!
My day started off with a surprise party at work with Leisa secretly organising for all the girls to surprise me as I arrived for work. Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart girls for making my day soooo special.All day I had friends call in to wish me a happy Birthday & then When I left work I came home to my family to a lovely baked dinner, a box of chocolates & a bunch of red roses & all this was on top of my pressies this morning before work. My kiddies gave me a new bag & wallet while my hubby got me a George Foreman Healthgrill. That is also on top of the cricut that I got a few weeks ago that the lovely Leisa upgraded to an expression for me. PLUS the girls this morning gave me lots of lovely goodies. Tonight I had lots of phone calls,pressies & visits from family & friends. SOOOO needless to say I am feeling Very, very LOVED!!!!!!!
I will share some pics of some of my pressies-

So again THANK you to everyone that made my day soooooo special. You truly are amazing & know how to make a "young" girl feel special
Thanks for visiting

Time flies

Time flies when you are havin FUN!

Saturday we held a Christmas in July @ Scrapsidaisy & wowsers we had a fun time.
The girls were so creative. Their pages were amazing! It gave me so much inspiration ( I have been lacking of late!) I came home ready to go....here is a bit of what I did-

Firstly I created this canvas for my sisters birthday. This is a pic of my great niece, Liliana, isn't she adorable! I used the new My Minds Eye 29th Street Market paper range, Bella chip, MM lace,flowers & buttons & my Cricut to cut out the title. (I am so loving my Cricut!)
The next page is with pic's of my D.D & another Great niece, Chloe. The papers & embellishments are M.M. I love the pics on this one.
I have created more but haven't taken pics as yet. I will share more when I get the pics done.
We are enjoying the school holidays here at the moment. The kiddies & I have been enjoying the beautiful weather. Today we went to visit Daddy at work. He has new cattle & we went to help him drench them...LOL...It was so much fun. While I was there I had to take a photo of "DAISY" the dairy cow. The kids named it last week...lol...I will share a pic-
isn't she cute!

these are some of my fave pics from the last few days.
Be sure to check out the Scrapsidaisy forum as in August we are having the ever so talented Kim Archer come for a visit. The day looks like it will be a huge one & numbers are limited & filling fast! The work that Kim does is amazing so if you are interested be sure to ring the shop real quick!
have a great week & thanks for stopping by
