Take me to the island...

TOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited...we have just booked a fabulous holiday to Thailand!!! YAY!

We will be spending 6 days in a resort in Phuket and then 4 days shopping in Bangkok!

It's our first big holiday since Poppy was born! I have travelled alot but never with a toddler so it should be an interesting experience LOL! We will be going in October and I can't wait - imagine the food, the shopping, the culture, the photos we will get...

Family fun - I'm excited!

Water baby...

Well today Miss P went for her first swimming lesson! She LOVES water so she really didn't fuss too much. She looked so cute in the pool with her Daddy!

My scrapping mojo had disappeared for awhile..think I'm just tired - Poppy has been waking up earlier and - 5.30am...NOT happy!
It seems to be slowly making it's way back...these photos will be fun to scrap!

Circle Journal for Amanda

Here is a quick look at the entry I did in Amanda's CJ - the theme was "Touch"...kinda stumped me for awhile because the rest of the album is so amazingly gorgeous! Well this is what I came up with although I think it still needs a little more "something"...

By the way if you are LOVING those wings (I am!!) You can get them from Scraptivate!!! German Scrap - Yummo! All this new Basic grey is in store too!!!!!

Kids Class

Well if any Perth locals have school aged children who would like to come to a class with me...I will be teaching a LO class at Scraptivate, on the Tuesday the 10th of July 10.30 am to 12.30am. There will be inking, lots of cutting, some ribbon, some bling...should be fun! I'm sure the mums out there would love two hours of peace...and it's a great excuse to come into the shop - I know there is a lot of new stock coming in very soon! Ring the store( see link on the side) to book!

My little book worm

Well with both parents being primary teachers you can only imagine the amount of amazing books Poppy has....she has really taken to them recently, looking, pointing, "reading" them rather than eating them!

Here is my take on the monthly sketch I drew up for Embellished! You can find the sketch at the forum! Hope some of you like it and will have a go at it! Loving the bright fun Urban Lily papers at the moment!

Have a few more LOs to share later...
