the STYLE queen herself...LOL... Ivy.. although she picked her clothes.. it was my mum who tucked her jumper into the skirt.. only because the skirt is too big but she insisted on wearing it....

oh and of course........

on a ROLLL>>>>........................

this masterpiece {LOL} was created using BB's build a page formula.. there is a group of 10 people and we go down the list and everyone says to add something.. the best bit it you stick as you go coz you dont know whats coming next and it works a treat.. i love my result
Family,

rediscovered HEAPS of raw chippy alphas that somehow got lost in my stash..lol.

the journalling... the bracket is actually a SCrapmatts nested shapes pack in raw that i glimmered then randomly cut to make the border for my journal spot.
another super cool cluster.. Shell gave me the doily and then the super cool cherry button is from Lil Red Rocket...teamed up with a super Scrapmatts butterfly that i got in red, glimmered alittle to add sparkle then glitter glassed {my2angels} the middle for some more bling..oh and the Gears is also scrapmatts.. thought since Tarj was in the pics should have something boyish..lol.. cool hey...


then the bottom.. was more Lil Red Rocket...

and i must also say that i loved my RANDOM border stitching using a different colour for the bobbin and thread.. looks super funky.. if i do say so myself...
feeling okay so far this morning.. i've made it out of bed.. the plan is to sit on the couch and make some clay cookies, candy canes and restock on the icecreams...
what an exciting day.. lol...

Love the Beach... {to cheer me up...}

Lil Red Rocket... YUmmies and Giveaway....

this months Lil Red Rocket Giveaway..

and as part of the giveaway you have to tell shell 2 of your favourites... well LOL>. to that.. i had no chance picking just 2.. so here are some newbies...
By the Sea Side bottle caps

Fairy Bottle tops

Froggies Fabric buttons...{these make me LOL every time}

Fur Friends buttons

Girls at Play set 2... SWEETNESS...

Little Miss,,,

Mr Men....

Pretty Girls.. gorgeous...

Street signs.. now seriously how FUNKY are these...


well i have heaps of other favourites.. but you know... i didnt want to show them all coz then you wouldnt go and check out the shop....

oh NO..............................

Okay so i FINALLY went to the dr after having this annoying cough for the past couple of weeks... just a cough though..nothing else.. but on Wednesday it took a rather painful turn.. was so sore from coughing and it felt like i was wearing a size 6 bra instead of 14..{LOL}... so off to the Dr on thursday.... initial reaction... "Umm... you have pneumonia...".. Yay i say... so she says lets do some tests... OK>.... X-ray .. i can handle that.... Blood tests.. thats okay as well not afraid of needles and it really doesnt hurt.... Throat swab..ummmm i have a high gag reflex..should be interesting... Nasal swab.. WHAT .. yuk.... oh and the fun part... cough something up and spit it in the jar.. {as Tracey said .. As if they dont have enough other bodily fluids to test}.. so i though .. i can handle it... that was until there were 3.. yep 3.. Nasal swabs... for everyones future reference.... AVOID NASAL SWABS..... i reckon a pap smear is better.. {sorry probably alittle too much info...lol} but anyho.. yep Definately pneumonia,,, good news... "you dont have to go to hospital, coz your young ..{thanks}.. and otherwise fit... BUT..... if you dont Rest, Stay home, and Stay inside out of the wind.. YOU WILL BE IN HOSPITAL... so okay... so this is my rest.. either sitting here or sitting at my scrap table.. VERY RELAXIN i say.. but i did sleep for 2 hours today.. so that something.. but the horrible thing is I was naughty during the week and did 3 orders at a couple of online places..sure i didnt spend that much.. but now i dont get to work the weekend and after all of the tests i have a grand total of ... wait for it... $7.00 to last me a fortnight.. YAY>. YIppee.... Woohooo.......
but its okay.. all bills are paid, house loan is 2 weeks ahead on my part, and there is food in the house.. so should be good... as long as nothing horrid happens..LOL.... so i'll probably be stalking a fair bit in the next week or two since i wont be going anywhere...LOL.....


okay so enough of my rantings... Roctreat sent... woot woot...

talk soon.. or I'll be STALKING you..........

Aussie Scrap Jack

This month over at Aussie scrap jack.. my BFF Tracey was one to get Jacked.. {lol..guess how many times i've wanted to say that..lOL.. actually i dont think i have..}.. but seriously.. here is her Layout.

and this is my Jack of it... i dont think i've ever jacked a lo of hers before so it was fun.

some stitching.


a close up of the pic.

of course a Lil Red Rocket button.. i originally had the lo finished with out the cluster at the bottom but i felt that it just needed something else.

so there you have it.. this was my 2nd layout that i got to do yesterday while Ivy was sleeping..

Well as some of you already know miss Ivy has been sick.. was tested for Whooping cough but thank goodness got the all clear from that..so now shes just coughing heaps...LOL.. but shes on the mend thanks to some strong antibiotics that have well knocked her out quite literally today.. so i was left with some time on my hands..... and well with Tarj at daycare, washing done, house clean... what else was a girl to do....

anyho. i actually started this one last night and finished it today.. thanks Ivy...

Back in the DAys...

mmm Lil Red Rocket, The Chip Chop Shop, Sweet Vintage and Clouds and More... NICE.. what a great team..

super fun title..

mmm.. MY LOVE of stamps is continuing.. lucky i ordered some more cool ones..lol..

these pics are some of the few that I have from when i was younger.. oh dont worry i scanned and reprinted from the originals..lol..

well i cant show you the other one that i did today as i finished it just as Ivy woke up and there was no way i could photograph it with her hanging off of me..
so you will just have to stay tuned to see it...
Thanks for visiting...
