My goodness...where has almost 2 months gone??? I can not believe that I have neglected my blog so much over the last 7 weeks. I do however have an excuse...the big PC at home went in for some maintenance after we were the unfortunate victims of some very talented computer hackers. My life was turned upside down and the feeling of being so exposed to the world left me very cautious as to what I accessed on the Internet!! All is well now though thanks to my very talented BIL James who managed to fix the problem and get us back up and running.

Anyhow enough of the excuses, whats been happening???

On the scrapping front...not a lot but I do have some layouts and an OTP album that I did for a present.

Here is what I have completed. There may be some more that I have yet to scan back into the computer to share but will do that in the next week or two.

Coop - July 2009

Our Perfect Pic - July 2009

Here is an OTP Album I completed for Caitlin Wilson's 8th Birthday. It was fun putting together an album for someone that appreciated it so much. Spunkalicious was so excited when she finally saw the finished project.

Side view of album - rather chunky!!

On the non scrapping side, things have been busy.

The kids have returned to School this morning after 2 weeks of holidays. The weather has been so cold that outside play for them proved a no go zone. We did however manage a few other activities.

I took the girls to see Disney Princesses on Ice - Princesses Wishes. It was so nice to have a girly day. We took the train into the city and walked down to Rod Laver Arena. Ellie loved the show and got so excited with Tinker Bell being the special guest...she is a huge Tinker Bell fan!! Cate and Tilly also loved the show and have asked if we can go again should the show return.
Here are two of the best pics I managed to get.

Belle - Beauty and the Beast

Final scene where all the princesses came out together with the Cinderella carriage carrying special guest Tinker Bell.

Mick had a great boys day with Kai. They went to the movies to see the new Transformers and apparently do boys things...what ever that may be!!!

The girls also went to the movies to see the new Hanna Montana movie. Apparently they loved it and are now eagerly awaiting the movie to come out on DVD.

My little mate Amy Jane spent the night in hospital after falling of her brothers scooter and breaking her arm. This kid is one tough cookie, surgery to set the arm in plaster and a night at the hospital and she just takes it all in her stride.

As you can see here, she is still full of cheek and allows me to take a pic for the record...well more for Selena to scrap and record her magical stunt ROFL!!!

Anyhow that's all I have time for to share at the moment. Need to run off and get the shopping done, get Kai organised for Kindy and try to restore some routine back into our daily life.

Until next time, take care of you and happy scrapping.

Soooo Neglected!!!

My poor blog...its been sooo neglected for the past few months, that I really need to give myself a big kick in the pants and keep it updated.

I have so much to share....everything from layouts, OTP items to whats been happening in my crazy world. But where to start is the next question.

Its a bit late (well only 2:15am) so I might leave the updating until tomorrow!!

Night all and watch this space for all that I have to share.
