Tones of blue....

We went to Gero last week - I had the flu and a horrid head cold the whole week - so it was good to be "looked after" by mum and dad. We did have some fun though, cooking gingerbread men - so cute and fun! And I got to catch up, very quickly, with Donna J - what a wonderful and warm woman she is! And could I just 'steal' her little munchkin Toby (Milly too - but hey, I already have one of them!) He is such a HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY little man!!

Poppy and Milly...lil cuties!
This week's challenge for Gallery 12 was 'blue". Looking around it's amazing how much we are surrounded by this colour!! Pop over and vote for your favourite photo!!
Here are some of my pics that didn't go to gallery!
Love that pigeon on top!

Good ol' country pub ( couldn't get a good shot from the street!)
History with a splash of paint!

I have more photos and some scrapping that I will post later - unfortunately I have been up since 4am - Gastro - ewwwwwwww vomitting for about 5 hours! Not nice at all - thank god it wasn't Poppy. I hope she doesn't get it! I can't remember being this ill for a long time!

I'm sure I'll be fine tomorrow - and I'm itching to get to the scrapdesk as I have new goodies from SCRAPTIVATE, including the new Sassafrass Lass - certainly my favourite paper in a long time! Also new BG, New Heidi Swapp(loving the houndstooth pp)....crackle paint, god the list goes on!!!
What's on your desk at the moment?

Still around....

Well it seems I start every entry with how busy I have been.......still so very true .....but hey that's life and it's all good!

We had a ball in Geraldton for Easter - Poppy created/painted her own easter basket with her cousins(such a big girl now) and had fun with the egg hunt. Although, she had no idea and once she found one egg she just wanted to sit and eat that one...the other kids encouraged her to find more. She seriously adores her cousins.

Then back home, back to routines and work. We had some fun playdates and a first birthday party. Lots of fun. Poppy's talking and funny antics are increasing everyday...she constantly has us in fits of laughter!

I must say my creating has been limited due to time & tiredness. My mojo is still there - just the body is not willing!LOL!

We are heading back up to see my family again next week and I'm very excited as I will get to catch up with the very talented and fun Donna J and her CUTE kids Milly and Toby! Can't wait!

Only have a few things to share, the rest are elsewhere!*wink*
