layouts as promised

well by the time I got home from work today the sun had hidden behind some rather large rain clouds so these pics of my latest 2 layouts are the best I could do.

hopefully I will have more to share in the next few days. Abbey is having a sleep over tomorrow night so unless Daniel decides to take me out and wine and dine me on a work night (unlikely) then I'll have plenty of time for scrapping.

a new start needs a new look

I have been THE slackest blogger EVER!!

I thought a new look blog (and a new name) might just get me motivated to start blogging more often (it's cute huh?).

My scrapping has been very slow over the last couple of months and I guess I can put it down to all the changes going on around here. Daniel is no longer working away which means I don't have all the free time I once had - not that I feel I can't scrap when he's around but I would much rather spend time with he and Abbey than put myself in a room alone to scrap. What's the point scrapping if I'm not creating the moments TO scrap?!?!?'s to creating special moments to scrap and actually getting the journalling and pics down on paper!!

NOW, I actually have a couple of layouts to post but the pics are a little dark so hopefully the sun will bless us tomorrow and I'll have nice bright, clear pics to share.

We're currently in our second week of school holidays here in NSW and Abbey and I have been spending lots of time together and really having a blast. Unfortunately she was very sick the first 4-5 days of the holidays but thankfully she's back to her normal self. We have seen 2 movies in the last couple of days - Ice Age 3 and the Hannah Montana movie and might I say that both were great! I didn't think I would enjoy the Hannah Montana one as much as I did but definitely worth watching, especially if you have an (almost) 7 year old who is obsessed with everything Hannah Montana!! it was so much fun listening to her sing along to the tunes and dance a little in her seat. In fact, sitting in the theatre with that many little girls was very memorable, lots of cute little giggles all round!

I'll see ya back here tomorrow for those layouts but until then I'll leave you with a little self portrait of my family and I (can't leave you with no pics at all can I?)

This pic was taken on daniel's birthday - we forgot to get a pic together with the cake so did it at abbey's story time when we remembered - oh well, better late than never!

p.s. happy birthday to the youngest member of our family - miss molly!! my lovely little niece is 1 today. Looking forward to spending time with her on Sunday at her baptism/birthday :)

blogger is playing hard ball

I have been trying to upload pics of my latest layouts for ages and I keep getting an error message. Will try again tonight when I get home from dinner.

Hi All,

It's been too long between posts.

I FINALLY got back into scrapping yesterday and managed to do a whopping 4 layouts in one afternoon. I guess my scrapping MOJO decided to revisit me...thank goodness.

Well now that I've said that, I actually don't have time to post all the pics, I have to run out the door to work so hopefully I will have time this afternoon to get them posted.

Hope everyone has a good day. It's a beautiful day here today, blue sky and no wind, I'm happy :)
