Sketch day, cards and a sneak ;-)

Hullo :) Far out I never know how to start a blog post.....should I say hi?Should I just jump right in to the jibbering? Should I not say anything? I dunno lol Ok so I read on Felicitys blog that she is doing a class on blogging for scrapbookers and as much as Id love to do the class too Im stingey PMSL so instead im going to make a conscious effort to make it more interesting lol I figure I read alot of blogs so im sure ill be able to add a bit of what I love from heaps of different blogs into mine :D Its worth a try hey! Ok so ill share the scrappiness then Ill get right into the jibbering lol

Ooooooh a sneaky peeky.........Im so excited about this LO and love how its turned out!Watch this space to find out more ;-)

The Scrapbook Establishment is having a 12 cards til christmas competition and I needed an excuse to get more cards done so I signed up to join in :) The first 2 challenges are....from Jaimee to create a mini scene (love doing these!) and the second was to find inspiration from a picture the fandabbydosey Tanya had shown us :) ... so much fun!You can still join in they arent due til monday mornings :)

The piccie Tanya inspired us with had some yummo pink,browns,red and cream......mmmmm makes me think of black forest cake!
Its sketch day at CIS sketchfans!I made this one using digi kits from Jessica Sprague :) Love her stuff so much!
This is my LO using it :) These photos are from Josh's 2nd birthday (he is 10 in December :O ) I love how Al is playing along with his little game....awwww so cute :) My super stars was a fitting title I think :)
a quick close up :)
Ok trying to think of something exciting to chat about.........ummmm.........ok after Kates award the other day Im inspired to share a bit more about me....maybe not exciting but different hey lol

I am a hoarder!!Much to Allans annoyance (even though he is just as bad!) I have real issues with things holding sentimental value.....I use them to remind me of people,places and times in my life.....I find things and think "what did I keep that for?" but then it brings back memories and I cant get rid of it!I think that it might stem from when we moved to Australia......leaving things behind (theres only so much you can bring across the world hey!) and it must have left a lasting impression on my way of being.....same as how close I am to my family other people dont seem to understand why we are so close but when we came to Australia we went from having a big family,cousins,Aunties and Uncles and our beloved Granny and Granda to it just being the 5 of country ,new home,new friends and we formed this unbreakable bond between us.I was thinking the other day maybe I should take photos of these "things"I cant seem to throw out or maybe I should scrap about the story behind them then maybe I can get over my hoarding? What do you think?

OK so not exciting but its something....hopefully my blog jibberish will improve with practice lol

Flowery hugs :)
