Still sick :-(

Wednesday, August 27, 2008

It has been over a week now and despite the drugs the doctor prescribed I dont really feel that much better, I am seriously tired all day then night time comes and I cant sleep???
I woke up this morning and literally can not hear out of my left ear and it feels all numb and icky, the right one is similar but I can hear a little better out of that one, hopefully the repeat of the medication will keep things moving.
Matt is in Coles Bay all week, so the girls and I are having a great girly time home alone LOL! We are heading down to CB this weekend with some friends and the kids are off to my sisters and mums for the weekend, it is going to be heaps of fun, I must remember to take my camera!!

Well I got voted out of IDOL last week, which I pretty much new was coming, I really didnt have a great creation for the last challenge and I struggled with it...
I am so happy I made it as far as I did because boy there were some talented ladies involved!!!
I am rooting for AM she seriously kicks butt and am loving everything that woman does at the moment!!!
In other news I havent done a lot of scrapping, I have finished my first layout for White With 1 for next month but cant show that yet, I have also done one for the Black Magic Blog but cant show that yet either LOL
Here is this weeks Stuck sketch, I am not overly happy with the LO but the sketch was a great one and am definitely going to use it again!

I am working on next week's Stuck sketch and have a long list of other things I want to do but am just not getting to them, I have no idea what is going on there!

Oh I got a great parcel of the new Basic Grey and I am in love, it is all so yummy!!! I have Mr Campy on the way from Embellished and cant wait for that, all I need now is some of that gorgeous Sass Lass!!!

Black Magic Sketches, comps and more!

Sunday, August 17, 2008

The next fortnightly challenge is up at the Black Magic Blog
This months colours are:
You are required to use 1,2,3,4 or all 5 of the colours from this months palette and your technique that you need to use is: DISTRESSING!
To be in the running for this awesome prize:
You need to have your entry emailed to: mysticalscrapbooks@yahoo.com by the 31st of this month!

Here is my example for this sketch -

Last night I completed my entry for Round 1 in the Scrapbooking Olympics over at CD Doodles
Our first challenge was to create a layout of any size using BLING, so this is what I whipped up last night whilst I was chatting to AM on MSN!!!
It is 6x12, half of a Jenni Bowlin Label, am really loving those colours, might have a play around with some more today if I get time...

Am looking forward to Phelp's last race today the Mens Relay I am so hoping they can win gold, not that I dont want Australia to win but just for the pure fact that I want him to get the record of 8 GOLD Medals!

Chloe played soccer yesterday and had a blinder! She was fantastic, gave some of the other boys some serious body shunting, although she gave away a free kick with one of them, she has been watching Uncle Ry Ry too much LOL and she scored two goals, she was quite pleased with herself!
The only have 2 games left and then they get a trophy so she is really excited about that LOL!

OK better go and do some housework, this place is a tip, I am sure I have forgotten something but will get to it later.
