Wow what a busy weekend straight after a huge Retreat weekend!
Friday night DH and the girls and I went to my sister's for a homecoming/happy engagement/lamb roast for my gorgeous nephew Scott who proposed to Poppy when they were travelling America and Mexico - Welcome to the family Poppy - you are a very special part of our family - such a beautiful artistic girl - We love you both and wish you every happiness!


At our Halloween crop - what do you think of the new me??

We cropped in the Dungeon of Creativity at CREATE ON GARDEN

Special thanks to all the girls who made the night fab

Extra special thanks to my scrap bud Shelley for all the behind the scenes organising to make the night fab..

As I was walking this morning I was thinking how blessed I am to have my beautiful girls, my Dh, my stepson and his girlfriend and all my special family and friends in my life. And how sometimes I just take this life for granted, as we all do at some stage - enjoy each and every opportunity/challenge life throws your way - it is an experience and with it comes knowledge, understanding, friendship (from the most unusual places ) love and compassion.
If you are reading my blog, please hug your loved ones tightly and tell them you love them -
do whatever you can for someone in need this week - please for me.

Life seems unfair sometimes
Could you spare a thought or prayer for 3 boys who have just lost their Mother
suddenly on Sat night.
She was only 41 years of age
This lady had just lost her Dad 3 weeks ago.

Well hello everyone
I have something to share (doing the happy dance ) I am having a layout published (FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME EVER in any mag) in Scrapbook Creations!!!!
To say I am happy would be an understatement
I have had this goal for over a year now - and it has come to fruition!!
No, you haven't seen the layout that is going to be published - I only completed it last week..
Just when I thought my mojo was permanently on leave I received an email from the lovely Kim at SC asking if she could publish my layout yipppppppppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Thanks for all the lovely encouraging comments on Facebook ladies!
