Ivy got her face painted.. {which is unusal..usually she wont do it...}..and yes that is Tarj and his cousin Ollie in the background playing in the sprinkler that was watering the grass....lol
She held a SNAKE.. this photo was taken just before she moved her hands away and dropped it coz its head was moving to look at her.. luckily the man caught it.....
love THIS.. the look on her face.. shes holding week old Blue tongue lizards..
Tarj loved the snake..
and then the lizards.. see the other snake behind him.. i wanted him to hold it but he wouldnt ..lol..


so there you go.. i dont want to bore you with all the photos... well i'm more than positive that you will see them eventually...... LOL..


anyho. i hope you all have a great couple of days..and enjoy your New Year.. yep its another year about to start and i'm excited about it.. its going to be a big one for me i can just tell.... so bye for now... MWAH......

live in Technicolor.....

well.. heeeellllooooooooooooooooo..... i'm here to share a little bit of fun with you.. {oh and a rand may be at the end..sorry...}
well to start with .. this one is all about the Lily Bee Design MEMORANDUM collection kit... i got this as my showcase for a manufacturer watch over at the boxx.... and how fun is it.. full of cool classics and some fun but not super bold prints....
anyho. i went with the not cool basics and a splash of not so bright pattern... added some super FUNKY photos and wallah....
"Technicolor"
Technicolor
and then some closies... {the only things not in the kit. the paint {obviously, the black card, thread and the technicolor title thats Echo park and the tags}...
so there you go.. a 6x4 photo at the top.. some black paint .. and some super RANDOM but planned well sort of ..as i went along planned stitching.......
the title ...
and then a couple of mini prints.. cool hey.. i must admit that i really like the way this all came together..wooohoooo i 'm lovin a layout... sweet as.. its the first time in ages that i've liked everything about a layout... woohoo.. HAPPY dance..... so thats it on the scrappy front..

BUT i just need to get this out .. so sorry suckers... fast forward to the comments if you want.. so ... is it just me or does anyone else feel somedays .. why.. why the crap am i a mum.. dont get me wrong i love my kids..they are almost all i have..but seriously there are days where i just think why the fuck.. when they just dont want to listen.. when they yell at me... or when after finally having enough of not getting listened to i loose it and ORDER them to bed.. well tonight took the cake.. i ordered to bed... but gave them the option of givin mama and papa kisses before they went and yes i'd still read them a LITTLE book.. so what does Tarj do.. he gets up and kicks the wall...seriously.. YOU are only 5.. holy crap what kind of attitude are you going to have in a few years... {and yes needless to say he WASNT read any books}... but .. i just wonder.. why.... ??? i know i shouldnt complain they are pretty good kids... and they are smart... granted Ivy does talk alittle too much..but mostly they are good..so why do i doubt somedays on having them.. i hate that i think it sometimes... and then they'll look at me or ask for a kiss or just do something funny and then i forget ...but is it normal to feel like this.. i know everyone has their bad days..but please someone tell me they have minutes or seconds when You think that...and i'm not insane..please.. oh and anyone who knows me KNOWS that i would never hurt them so please dont ring the child protection unit... i think that i will be better.. in about..oh i dont know as long as it takes me to finish writing this...but.... just a big fat BLAH... so thanks for listening..and i just had to vent..sometimes i hate not having someone here to actually say these things out loud..but then again i'm not sure that i would actually SAY them if someone was here... anyho.. thats it...
bye and thanks for letting do that.. oh heck its MY blog...so i can say what i want... ,, VENT ended..

i hope you all have a great couple of days.. and if i dont see you sooner i'll be back sunday for the SESH...
