Full of fun, friends, family, laughter and love!

thanks for all the PMs, emails, comments of congratulations! I am really overwhelmed by the wonderful online communities in the scrapping world. I am very excited about Masters and all the wonderful scrappers I get to work with next year. I am yet to see the mag!LOL!
I'm very lucky as my MIL is hosting Christmas this year - she loves to play hostess and god is she a great cook! So I can't wait! Poppy doesn't quite get it yet but I know she'll love her new toys! The day after boxing day we are off to see my family and staying for New Years! YAY!

I hope you all have a wonderful day and stay safe!
Here are a few things I have been working on....

Christmas cards
Altered Calendars...

And this CUTE notebook/journal....
If you want to make one I'm doing the class on them at SCRAPTIVATE...ring the shop and book in! Fun technique in this one!

Time flies...

...when you are having fun! Like everyone at this time of the year, we are soooooooo busy! With Christmas parties, catch ups, shopping, birthdays and a wedding - all fun and festive times!

I have done some scrapping but nothing I can share right only some Christmas pics....the tree is up, the cards are made, the presents just need wrapping!
How are your Christmas preparations coming along?

I'm already excited about the new year ahead with lots of fun opportunities, work options, scrapping activities, photo challenges, (hopefully a new study course) and finally house renovations...already presenting themselves!

It's beginning to feel....

Alot like Christmas....

We are back from Melbourne and had a ball athough we missed our girl...still, it was great to have a few days just as a couple! Dinners & coffees, shopping - lots of shopping, movies, few was fabulous! Poppy was a good girl for her Nanny and Papa.
Now we are in Christmas mode, finishing up the shopping, Poppy had her photo with Santa - and no tears or tantrums but not much of a smile either, at least she sat on his knee! I just have to put up the tree, make my Christmas cards and few calendars for the grandparents!
Happy Birthday to MAZ!!!! X

An update of scrapping soon!

What a hoot....

Mel - the boss lady at Scrapworld sent me the MOST FABULOUS kit to work with - a huge pile of Sassafrasslass Owl paper...OMG I love every single inch of it!!! It was so easy to use...LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT.
I did a pile of LOs and still have some left for cards....but the cards will have to wait because we are off to Melbourne tomorrow - just Dh and I...Poppy is staying at her Nanny and Papa's house. It's exciting to get a break but a little stressful as I have never had a night away from my girl in two years - and we will be away for 5 nights! OMG! She will be fine - it's me that's not coping! But I'm sure the shoe shops on Chapel street and the cake shops at St Kilda will console me!LOL!
Hope you are having a great weekend! X

OMG my baby is TWO! Yesterday Poppy celebrated turning two with a Ladybug theme party! Lots of food, lots of fun, lots of friends and yes she was thoroughly spoilt - new trike, a dolls pram, puzzles, books, playdough, clothes...the list goes on! She was the perfect hostess!

I can't believe two years have passed already! She is a joy....a busy joy!!!LOL!

We're back........

Well we had a ball in Thailand...although there was no "relaxation" time when travelling with a toddler! That said Poppy was really good but due to her age there was a lot we couldn't really do. Phuket was stunning - our resort was just gorgeous....private beach, five pools, restaurants,gym, playcentre and a baby elephant that visited daily and scared the crap out of Poppy. She really wanted to see it each day but then bawled if it go too close!

We ate lots, swam lots, walked lots and shopped lots!

The local people were gorgeous and adored Poppy especially her pale skin and blue eyes. They touched her alot which freaked me out at first but it's just the way they are...she loved it and learnt lots of social skills - shaking hands, new greetings "morning", and answering questions..."what's your name? How old are you"...she loved the attention!
In Bangkok we were joined by my inlaws and they helped out with Poppy - Tony and I got to go out in the evening for a meal and some MORE shopping! It is such a hectic place, great to visit but I'd hate to live there!

We had a fabulous time and we will definately be returning but not until our kids are a little older!

Had two LOs published in the latest Scrapbook Creations...I'm posting them below as the colour and quality in the Mag was disappointing as usually this is one fabulous mag. I think something went wrong in the printing process as it's not just my LO that looks a bit off!

This one is nearly a year old!! The photo is by Julie's her gorgeous DD! Julie has a lot of stunning LOs in the mag...she is pure inspiration!!!

And this one shows all the words Poppy could say @ is completely blurry and dull in the mag!!!

Little bit of LOLA...

Got my hands on some Elsie "lola" papers from the states( woo hoo - thanks Kyla) and have been having a play...still got tonnes left so expect to see lots more of this paper from me!

Ummmmm I wasn't sure if I should post it here or not but I've seen it on other blogs so hey why not **toot**
Yesterday morning while scrambling around trying to get ready to go to the gym I got a call to say I had made it into SM 100 for the Masters Comp. I was actually a bit lost for words( unlike me!)...they must think I'm a bit weird!LOL!
So it's a bit exciting as I literally decided to enter at the last minute. My hope was to make the 100 and I honestly have no expectation beyond this - especially as I am beginning to see the wonderful ladies who are on the list!
So there you have it....thanks to a push and some support from a wonderful scrap buddy
