Created by me.......

For CREATED BY YOU!!My local scrap shop owned by my lovely friend Jody Bain :) Jody gave me these papers to create a kit from and let me just say they where a challenge and a half!!!But I like the end result....even if I did stand up and storm out after the first attempt LOL But I did have a nasty ear ache so it may have affected my mojo LOL





I had a play with some of the samples from the new kaiser ranges and made these cards for Jody's shop :) Oh and I christened my cute lil studio g stamps too :)
Well we had a fabulous weekend :) Saturday night we went and saw Kirsten and Jason (It was an awesome night....I had the hangover to prove it on Sunday PMSL) then sunday off out for a krispy kream and a quick catch up with Nic and Jody before retreating to the couch LOL That was before my ear started throbbing........its alot better now so I think it could have been from the weather :$ it is getting cold in the morning and at night now......who knows but it came by itself and went by itself so its all good LOL
I think thats about it for now.............Oh how good was it that Bob won biggest loser!!Yay!!
Ok im going to scrap now :)
Thanks for stopping by!

Well yesterday was a complete and utter nightmare......I had a mini meltdown when Al got home....he told me not to worry and gave me a bug cuddle which made me feel a bit better.P.S Nutella wasnt a good idea *shaking head* LOL So anyway I did a spot of scrapping/card therapy last night and made these 2 fairy cards using stock from the fabulous Jody @ created by you Burpengary :D I had so much fun with these lovey!Ive still got more to do too ;)

I shouldve stayed in bed today........

Far out what a craptacular day :( I went down to coles to grab some of the meat bargains they have on this week,went to visit the lovely Jody on the way back ;) then started on my merry way walking home.........by the time I got half way home I was slapping myself for being so stupid as to attempt to carry that much food on my own and kept saying to myself....."not far now" while the bags are cutting into my shoulders (ouch) I get just one street from my house and spot a dog off in the distance running around........it cant be my dog,she hasnt gotten out in ages..............she has been good lately.......bit closer and low and behold yep its my dog *insert rolling eyes here* cheeky so and so ran towards me so I put down my mega heavy shopping bags thinking at least if I can put her in the yard I can come back for the food but NOOOOOOOO she runs straight past me ( I swear she was doggily grinning at me LOL) and off she went.I walked home fuming and hurredly put away the food before grabbing her lead and setting out in search of the elusive pooch when there she is in the front yard and once again she runs straight past me!!!At this point I am considering letting her go and if she gets lost serves her right for being naughty.......then my conscience kicked in and I thought "what if she gets hit by a car?what if she spooks a little kid and they fall off their bike? what if she doesnt come back?" LOL so off I go......found her trying to get at a cat in someones window the next street over.........thats the only way to catch her is when she is distracted.So I get home rouse her,give her a drink and lock her in the sin bin (aka the verandah) then I set about doing my various "jobs" for the day #1 on the list was some towels for my friend Tracy, got one towel done (very pretty) then disaster struck .........I was distracted and didnt know the needle had snapped and now the machine isnt working :O :( :(:( Now Ive got to try and find someone to fix it .......if it can be fixed that is :( Im so sad,stressed and emotional.Today has sucked big time...........sorry about the rant :( Now im knuckle deep in the nutella jar with bickies......chocolate doesnt fix everything but it helps LOL

Yesterday was the 9 year anniversary of my 1st date with Al ....awwwwww if my friend Miss Tracy is reading this I know you are doing the finger down the throat thing pmsl.How things have changed in the last 9 years......we have stood by each other through alot over that time,the good and the bad.To think that people said we would never last makes me laugh everytime........we are still as in love as we where in the start.....he is still my very best friend and no one comes close.Ok enough of the lovey dovey stuff.

Guess what??Kloe (fur kid #1) is finally learning (the hard way) that she is not a human!PMSL bizarre to some but not those that have met Kloe (she can say hello LOL and says it to me every morning PMSL......seriously im not crazy!) she and her fur brother Jack (top dog) have be banished to the back verandah at night time instead of inside downstairs........we are hoping to do some major renovations soonish and that will become our main living area so I wanted to get the pups used to it now rather than later iykwim.She isnt happy but is getting better about it everyday....thank heavens for her bark collar LOL


Whats everyone up to this weekend??Al and I are having a chill out weekend (hopefully) then off to an Easter celebration at Nic and Davids place :) Im going to play photograher with my SLR and get some pics of Nics gorgeous boys......the Easter bunny is coming too YAY!!Im excited like a little kid :D
