Scraptacular - SYTYCS Week 4

Sunday, September 28, 2008

SO this weeks scrap-eography was:

You need to create a LO either 12 x 12 or 8.5x11 and include the following on the layout.

- masking tape (or another form of decorative sticky tape)
- rub-ons
- add hand written journalling directly onto your photo
- use bright colors

So here is what I created this afternoon, totally different to what I normally do but I really like it!!!We had Chloe's soccer presentation today and she got up on stage with her team plus Lily and accepted her trophy and typically me what did I forget?? Yes a camera LOL! then lily waited until the next team went up while I was madly waving to her to sit down and she is shouting out HUH? and What???? SO EMBARASSING LOL! Anyhow Matt had to go up to the stage and get her off, she is such a funny kid that one!

Tonight we are off out for mums birthday dinner so that should be good and then its back to another week, why is it that weekends go far too fast and weekdays take forever to end LOL!

Oh and congrats to all the Hawks fans out there, I really thought Geelong would win, I dont think the hawks played any better than they normally do, I just think Geelong didnt play like they normally do...
I was happy to see Shane Crawford get a Premiership medal since he has played for so long, now he can announce his retirement!!!
Actually one thing that makes me mad is that each year they get the little auskick kids up there to present the medals and the footy guys give them a hat, NOW I am sure that if you are not in the grand final and you are an AFL footballer you will watch the game, I think there is no excuse that when you go up to the little child and they put the medal on you and then they get the hat how hard is it to shake that childs hand????? There were a few of the hawks that couldnt even do that, yes I realise it is exciting but you are also adults and professional athletes it's not hard to make an effort and do the right thing up there!!!!!
OK so I have had my rant, I better head off LOL!
Thanks for stopping by :-)

Finally on the mend...

Tuesday, September 23, 2008

Well school holidays have come and gone and the three of us, Chloe, Lily and myself were sick and spent pretty much most of it in bed LOL!
I ended up with some horrible reactions to the antibiotics I had but finally I think we are heading in the right direction.
Why is it that yourself or the kids always get sick on the school holidays?

I havent done a lot of scrapping just commitments for Stuck, Black Magic, White with 1, I am still in the running over at Scraptacular in their competition SO YOU THINK YOU CAN SCRAP, I have had heaps of fun with all three challenges so far!
I only managed one challenge over at Embellished on the weekend, they have started FRIDAY NIGHT GAMES again, which is always a heap of fun!!!

Matt is still spending his weekdays down at Coles Bay and looks like it will be that way for another couple of months, it was hard while we were sick but hopefully things will get a bit easier now!
Chloe starts swimming and trampolining back up this week, she had to put trampolining on hold during the soccer season as training was on trampolining nights so she is looking forward to that this week!
She also bought home a leaflet for Little Athletics for her school, not sure if we will sign up or not yet...
Anyhow here are some of the latest layouts that I have completed hope you like them :-)

This is week 2 for SYTYCS @ Scraptacular -
This is week 3 - This is the layout for one of the challenges at Embellished's FNG, the challenge was a monochromatic LO:
This one is for Stuck?! this week -
This one is for the 2nd challenge over at Black Magic, if you want to win yourself a Cropper Hopper Canvas Organiser head on over HERE!!!
All you need to do is create a layout using the the colours you wish from the specified colour scheme and the sketch provided and use PAINTS as your technique!!!Not sure what is going on there with the underline, I couldnt get rid of it???
So I am desperately waiting on Basic Grey's Urban Prairie and Sass Lass's new papers that I have ordered from AUS and the US cant wait to get them both and have a play, all I need is some new photos which I must do this week!
There is one more layout that I tried to upload but it kept coming up sideways so I chucked it and left it as I couldnt work out how to turn it around LOL!
I am off to watch a new show called True Blood, its a vampire show and I am totally addicted, I have been watching as soon as someone uploads as it airs on Sunday nights in the US they have only shown 3 episodes but I am hooked LOL!
Also loving the NEW 90210, Project Runway Season 5, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Supernatural and the second season of Secret Diary of a Callgirl, all of which I am watching online as I cant wait for them to reach here!

OH I almost forgot Sara from Stuck?! Sketches is looking for some new people to join the Creative Team,
"Have you ever wanted to be a Stuck?! Sketches CT member? Well now is the time to prove it. We are currently taking sign ups for a mini comp to prove just how much you want to be a Stuck?! CT member.

Long time between posts...

Monday, September 8, 2008

As I am sitting here waiting for paint to dry, I thought I had better update my blog, thanks to a certain someone who tells me they are sick of seeing that I am still sick LOL! ;-)

Anyhow I had just started to get over what I had before when wham a lovely bout of gastro Saturday night hits me, what else could I get lately???
So I missed out on scrapping Sunday as I felt absolutely horrid, thankfully a good nights sleep last night did wonders and I woke up today feeling a bit better than I thought I would!
I have finished off a layout for a CC challenge over at Mystical and uploaded my SYTYCS layout yesterday at Scraptacular so I can share those layouts plus another one I did a couple of weeks ago...
Ok so this first one is my SYTYCS LO, using Mr Campy which I LOVE!!!This one is the CC Challenge at Mysticaland this one is one I started up at Susan's a couple of weeks ago!
Hopefully I will have more to share this week, I plan to get heaps of scrapping done over the next 2 weeks, I have even got organised and put my name down for 4 swaps over at Mystical and have 3 already finished and ready to go thanks to Wends for helping out today ;-)

The kids are on school holidays so we have a few things planned although poor Chloe is sick at the moment as well, we are going to head up to Grindlewald and play some Putt Putt golf and head to the movies to see Wall E, Matt is on holidays the following week so we are going to head to the minature world place near Sheffield and take the kids to the beach and a few other things, they are looking forward to spending heaps of time with him as he is working at Coles Bay, 2 hours away during the week and only comes home on the weekend, looks like it will be like that for the next couple of months too!

Anyhow I better get back to this LO thanks for stopping by, feel free to leave me a comment :-)
