This weeks Noteworthy Challenge

This is my sample card for this weeks Noteworthy challenge at SCRAPZ. This weeks challenge is to get creative with your craft knife and create a card with a cut out pattern. I have used the gorgeous Pink Paislee Queen Bee collection again for this one.

Lil' Robots

Over the weekend I had some time to play with the gorgeous new My Minds Eye Lil' Robots collection. I just love MME and this collection is no expection. It is gorgeous, bright and fun and perfect for the little man in your life.

The huge sheet of chipboard made it so easy, to put together a set of cards with all the scraps.

Kayla has been wanting to try the 'darker side' for sometime. Here she is with her new look.
I really like it and so does she.

Meet Tiger Lily

Tiger Lily is the latest addition to our family. Kayla has been asking and asking and asking, for a kitten. I have done everything to ignore her and say no. On Thursday she rang me from school, with a sad story about this little kitten that had been left there and they were going to send it to the pound. She begged and pleaded and in a moment of madness I said 'yes' she could bring it home. There were lots of conditions. It is her's and she is totally responsible for it. The kids are all in love with it and have been fighting over her. So far so good, I just hope she continues to behave herself.
And yes Dad it is a CAT!!!! No nasty comments from you ;)

News in photos

The biggest one dyed her hair and has since dyed it again, even darker. She has been wanting to try the 'darker' side for awhile now. She was sick of being called a dumb blonde.

This boy decided he would rather be behind the camera instead of in front of it
This little lady was very brave and got her ears pierced during the holidays. She is very proud of her new ears

And the littlest one learnt how to tie his shoelaces. These are his new footy boots - which look nothing like this anymore

And a rare photo of the two of us on top of Mount Schank in Mt Gambier. Gosh this was a very hard climb but so worth it. It was amazing.

It's my turn to do this weeks Fetch at Sketch at SCRAPZ. I used the lovely new Bo Bunny Mama Razzi range.

I thought this paper was perfect for my camera shy boy.

Time flies when you are having fun

Wow has it been that long????

Hello there, we have been busy having fun!!!

We had 8 visitors come and stay for the last 9 days. Chris's Mum and Dad, Sister and husband, 2 nieces and his cousin and wife. We were out almost everyday. We went to Portland, Cape Bridgewater, Halls Gap, The Grampians, Coonwarrra, Pelona and Mt Gambier.

Unfortunately both the girls came down with the Chicken Pox on Friday, so that stopped our traveling. The boys haven't got it YET!!!

The boys went back to school yesterday, the girls will be home for another few days. Our house is slowly returning to normal.

And I will leave you with last weeks Scrapz.Biz challenge
