hey everyone, i have been doing stuff but havent done a layout for days.. scary.. i've been making some stuff to send to some very special people.. {hope they like}.. i've tried dyeing doileys..{fun}.. and today was a nice day... started out with some awesome clouds and ended by taking the kids to the park to feed the ducks.. {not something we do alot of, we probably should..}
Great clouds hey....


feeding the ducks.. {ps..spur of the moment so they in daggy house clothes.. and it was cold.. freezing in the shade..

posers.. Ivy being Ivy.. and Tarj well what can i say.. he so cute... and tough..LOL

I tried at least to get a decent pic of the 3 together..but Tarj and Ivy insisted on eating the last of the moldy bread that the ducks were supposed to have and wouldnt stop for a photo.. but still i suppose reflects us... a bunch of daggs....LOL...


oh and the mist coming off of the fountains was so nice that i just couldnt walk past without taking a photo...
well that was my day.. {oh but have had a crappy weekend..you know kids being crabby and the rest of the family as well {extented as well}.. YAY for me.. but hopefully this new week will be all good.. fingers crossed anyho..
a layout is in my head {sort of} for doing tomorrow so that'll make me feel aheap better.. thanks for visiting and please feel free to leave a comment...

couple more to share

You Inspire Me..
I've had this pic of Ivy for a while but was unsure what to do.. then this challenge came along.

the details..

some Lil Red Rocket magic,, have i mentioned i'm ADDICTED TO THEM

another one of me.. so sorry

okay so this is the last page i'm doing about myself for a while.. and the last with that door...LOL...{cept maybe a special one that you'll all see later}.. but yay..

some random crazy stitching.. i sow need a sowing machine.. do you realise how long this border took me to do....


awesome products... tree is stuff to scrap.. Petrina McDonald
and of course Lil Red Rocket...for the pp rounds and the button...
more rounds and awesome butterflies...woot woot.
just incase you were wondering the journalling reads....when you ask people why they scrap you'll get the most common answer for my kids, so they'll have heaps of memories of what we did and who they were growing up... and i say pigs arse to that.. sure thats a by product but for me its about the quiet time, the ME time, when i get to be creative, arty, even my true self. so take it or leave it. scrappin is fun, addictive, mental and even alittle random, but most importantly its all about ME... and a way to preserve our family history and remember the fun times..LOL... oh and i nearly forgot about ME making new friends...

so there you have it.. alittle random.. but its me.

on a brighter note

okey dokey.. so i did a layout over the weekend..not sure if i like it but its abit of fun.. started okay then tried something with the paper and it didnt work so i just kept goin..
totally addicted to dyno tape at the moment..the journalling on a paper doiley.. interesting... might try it again
this definately wont fit into an album..so much height..hard to tell by pic but the highest part is about and Inch to Inch and half high.. just went with the flow.
flower as taught to us by Gilly on our scrap nite for her birthday


a banner.. my style... something abit unusual..
layout was done for a local challenge group and it was to scrap something you did etc for the first time....

what a morning.. couple days..

okay so this is what has happened... yesterday i played soccer and got kicked in the knee... so i have an awesome bruise... cool hey...
then Tarj in his words "was just making Ivy Beautful..".. yep you guessed it cut her hair..
this is the front view.. little missing from fringe.. not too bad
and the back..little chunks taken out..

the infamous scissors... so quick run to Belindas for her to fix.. she did great job, she didnt end up having to cut Ivys hair up to the chunks but was able to add some layers.. feeeew.... oh and between the chop and lunch, i've had Ivy forget to go to the toilet a few times, including at Belindas in Jetts room.. and then Tarj be sick everywhere... YAY for me....LOL.
