So Excited!

 I received a message yesterday from a friend in our Car Club to tell me that there was a photo of me at Sydney Powercruise doing the off street drags! OMG I was so excited! He had received his sub in the mail yesterday. I quickly got online to see when it was on Sale... and it was available today.. so I was at the newsagency bright and early this morning to get my copy. Of course I had to take it out to Craig and show him too.

And that just topped my already great day! I had spent the day scrapping some some friends and I had received an email from Scrapbooking Memories accepting another one of my layouts and then this!
talk about covering all bases PMSL!

White With 1 for March

The challenge for this month at White with 1 was to create a layout using WHITE - BRIGHT PINK - ARTISAN SHAPES/ARTISAN PRODUCTS... I thought I would try something a different and try some crackle paint and some glimmermist on some chipboard and use some dimention. totally inspired by Kerryn Fry.

The last of the catch up

I cant remember if I have told you that I am doing an 8.5 x 11 size albumn for all of my photos of when I was a little girl??? I have found this size a pleasant change, especially as the photos are alot smaller than what we use now :)
This next Layout is a photo of my grandparents 25th Wedding anniversary. I still have to ask mum what year it was and finish the journalling.

The next one is of my and my teddy bear... and I still have him!
I am in love with these MME Stella and Rose Doiley Stamps <3

And here are some 'just because' of Kirsten

And the next two are of my neices to add to the White Family Album

Thanks for dropping By!
I am sure that I will have some more for you tomorrow as Josie is coming over to scrap today. yeah!

March Scrapbook Savvy Kits!

Were you lucky enough to get your hands on some Scrapbook Savvy Kits this month??? I know that the We're Savvy kit is sold out, but there are some She's and He's Savvy kits left! pop on over and have a look!

As I mentioned in my last post, I have started scrapping some old photos. Both of me and the kids... i have shoe boxes full of them! it should keep me scrapping for years (I hope lol)

So here are some layouts that I have done with my kits this month

I did this one for Sar's random kit Challenge at Savvy for this month... we had to use staples, 2 of the journalling stickers and some fussy cutting

This one was for the Scrapbooking from Scratch monthly sketch challenge

 This one is of my brother and I ALONG TIME AGO lol

I have some more on the go as well, but will have to wait until I finish them before I can share them with you

Yep, I am! I havent blogged for ages :( I have been too busy scrapping lol!

I have played along with Scrap The Girls this month.. you can find them here.

We had to use some  SHE quotes by Kobi Yamada as the title & inspiration for our LO.

I chose this quote:

She just has this way of brightening the day.

OMG this is a photo of my eldest Daughter Kirsten taken 11 years ago... how cute is she!

I wish that I was a scrapbooker when my girls were little.. I have looked at some of my photos and shuddered... but I have decided that I am going to scrap them, they are part of them, and I want to document all of their lives... right from the start.

I will be back tomorrow to share some more Layouts with you

It's about time!

Well...... On Friday I bit the bullet and went and joined the new gym that has just opened up in town
 The gym is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week, so you can go when ever you like! not that I would go in the middle of the night lol.  All the machines have their own tv and 15 channels for you to choose from!
Today I used every excuse possible to not go... but I kicked myself up the butt and went and did a work out... I only did 30 mins on the bike but holy cow the sweat was dripping off me... I havent done any form of exercise at all since Craig and I had the accident.... nearly 14 weeks ago.

While I was peddling away, I was surfing the channels to find something to watch.... I stumbled across Dr Oz and he was talking about your real age. I dont usually watch his show, but this one got me intrigued. It certainly made the time on the bike go faster!
After I fell of the bike (my legs were soooo wobbly lol) I drove home and then grabbed my laptop and googled the REAL LIFE TEST and decided I would do the test :O Most of you know that I turn 40 at the end of next month.... well, my real age came up as 45. I nearly had a heart attack right there and then... I knew that I had put on weight and that I was unfit,and I thought I ate reasonably well (and drank too much too lol) but I wasnt prepared to see that answer :)
I am sooooo glad that I went to the gym today and saw that show. From now on in I determined that I am going to get my real age down to below what age that I actually am! I went into town again and went and bought this book
No, this is not just going to join all of the 100's of diet and recipe books that I have accumulated over the years.... I have read a few articles about this diet and I have also had a good look at it at the book store on several occasions.  I really think that I can stick to this one as it actually contains all of the foods that I eat :)

So, it is 5 1/2 weeks until my birthday and I am hoping to loose at least 6 kilos in that time! And reward myself with a new dress and shoes (if this damn ankle will let me ggrrr) to celebrate!

Are you looking for some Inspiration???

Over at Scrapbook Savvy every month the girls run some fantastic challenges. So far this month I have completed Anthea's sketch challenge

I have also done Sandra's March ANTI 54321 Challenge... not many of us have been doing her 54321 challenge every month and I have been guilty of that :( so this month she thought she would mix it up a bit and give us criteria that WE WERNT ALLOWED TO FOLLOW

So this month, YOU CANNOT USE:
5 x different papers

4 x ribbons

3 x flowers

2 x photos

1 x cardstock

and there is NO WAY that we are allowed to sew on our layout...

and if you know San, she loves to hand sew on everything lol
Here is my take on her challenge :)
I hope you get to Savvy and try out these challenges!

Thanks for Dropping by!

Out of the Hat Sample for March

do you remember this post from the other day? After unpacking from our week away and doing all the washing I managed to get this layout done! And then I couldnt find my battery charger for my camera. I finally found it behind the computer desk, and then had to wait for the battery to charge ggrrrrrr.....

But it is now ready to show you.... do you remember this months criteria?

•Use twine
•Use a number in your title
•Make your own Journaling spot (use stamps etc)

I used my cuttlebug and a spellbinder Nestabilites Labels Die to make my journalling spot... I must remember to use these more as I have a bit of a collection of different dies (are you suprised??)

Anyhow, here is the layout for you
