Here's a sneak peek at one of my DT makings for D2U :-) Come on over and check out the gallery in the next few days! I also heard Marisa talking about some new products *grin*. Love me some new goodies!
The girls showed off their climbing skills, despite being told they were on their own if they fell..
My cheeky girly! Ooooh look at the pool in the background. Its got water in it again, so I am guessing its almost swimming time again! This year, I vow to get that boy of mine in the water!
Heh, these two...
Watch out London olympics...three little gymnasts in training:-)
Well, have a great week my lovely family and friends, I have an assignment due this week that is sadly neglected. I think Mick is going to have the boy while I make a really good start tomorrow. At least thats my plan...

Fave#1 is scrappy...how could I not mention THE KIT!?!?!? Ahhh there are so many faves in there I can't even begin to list them...Thickers, MM noteworthy, prima, felt YUM! Fave #2 is also scrappy...sorry guys! Its my new Threading Water punch. It only arrived today and is still in its packet. Mmmmmm, gonna have me a fun play this weekend!
Fave#3 is a whole differnt thing...and possibly quite sad and boring (although not quite as sad and boring as my kitty litter fetish from a few weeks back LOL) This Vanilla bench spray is great! I clean the benches and people think I have been baking!
Fave #5....my family! Now I don't have photos of them all, so I shall leave you with a few from the Bridesmaid shopping adventure!
And my mummy with the girlies!
The only way this trip could have been better is if everyone could have been there. Dad, Dan, Del, Kimmy and Bethy (Shane was there, but not commited to the shopping LOL)
Ahhhh, I miss you guys SO much!
Love ya, thanks for stopping by! (link me up to your faves! I see my mumsy has done hers!

It was packaged all pretty, each little kit (I bought the main kit and two add ons) came in a paper bag with a little sticker on it. It was fun just to open it! Oh oh oh!!!!! Looky!!!!! The colours, the smell...the THICKERS!
Oh my, look at the Prima brads!!!!!
And all that paper!!!!! So many sheets, so many possibilities!

Plan 'A' was a cheap Thai takeaway....which I liked, because I was dressed in my best tracky pants and daggy jumper. I had driven for 5 hours, and had no make up. Not pretty.
When suddenly Plan 'B' was hatched! Lets go to Sizzler!!!!!!!
Yep, so my daggy tracksuit and I went to Sizzler. And scared lots of people. I am sure people stayed away from me cause I looked like the sort of person who would stab your hand to get the last potato wedge....
despite my scary attire, dinner was fun! Love spending time with my family...the only possible way this could have been better would have been is ALL the family couls have been there...not sure if they would have shooped with the same level of commitment the next day though.
Luckily this is not how we slept. Nat and I shotgunned the bed, leaving mum and Amy to sleep...umm, not sure where....

before I go, some making...My fun challenge at Addicted2scrapping is to use circles on a LO. Do this and get it into the gallery before Sunday and you could win a $25 voucher! Just cause I loves ya! (the kids will be helping me to decide the winner..they have impecable taste, they think my LOs are great!!LOL)
I am kinda scraed of circles...they look kind of Creative Memories - ish, but I don't mind this LO. I am trying to conquer my fear... A sneaky peek for my DT stuff for September for D2U. Yep, that there is some fairy lights! Woohooo! The kids think its christmas time already!
And this mysterious snap....
What is it?
Well, as part of Mick's firefighting gig, he volunteers to go out to the airstrip in the middle of the night (when required) to turn on the airstrip lights for the Flying Doctor to land. This was the plane landing, and the best of the 27 photos that he took LOL.
After our experiences with Sam and having to get flown out by the Flying Doctor, I think its great we can do a little something to help out in return. They really rock!
So, I will be gone for a few days...don't miss me too much!
Thanks for stopping by!

#1 the kids artistic creations...this little guy here is a lizard, created at day care by Sammo! Mind you, I hate hanging onto these things, and after I make the appropriate 'ooooohs' and 'aaaaah's, and perhaps snap a few pics, they usually get tossed in the rubbish *blush*
#4 mmmmm sunset. Love the pretty colours. There is nothing like these colours outside of nature.
#5 is naturally my baby. My new camera. It hasn't magically given me skillz overnight, but my snaps are improving. LOVE it!
Thanks guys, thats mine for this week...give it a go, and let me see!
Thanks for stopping by!

Here's my boy and the new baby Jesus. Not sure why he changed, or why all babies are Baby Jesus, but its kinda cute!These shoes make me laugh...even more than crocs...
And cause I miss them all A LOT... my family. Love you guys...
And best news EVER! (well, this week anyways) I have cut back my study commitments by half. Instead of trying to do two units this semester, I have cut back to one, and feel MUCH better about it. I was stressing to the point where i couldn't even begin to do the work, so was really just treading water anyway. So this will now take longer, but thats okay. My husband is happy, my kids are happy and I am happy...all good!

Back to the house...no, this is not ours, this is right next door...what we have to live next to. Its gorgeous, and I have house envy...this is why ours NEEDS to be painted...
Heh, more patchwork...cause colours look different in different lights....apparently. And cause many people walk past our house on the way to get to the bank, I have had many comments about the colours. It would seem everyone in town has an opinion...if I had $1 for every comment I got just last week whilst at work, I could retire LOL. I haven't had this many house comments since we took down the front fence...ahhhhh, the joys of small town living! And some more...now this is bad. i would fall in love with a colour painted out the back and we'd try it out the front and I would hate it. I hate this...
And these are the sample pots we bought yesterday. Yep, one days worth...Mick has been alternating between the two hardware stores so he doesn't get mocked any more than he already has. Each store has made comments about the amount we have bought...little do they know!!!!
Bwahahahahahah!!!!! So thats me for today! I am off to the school to try and get some uni stuff done. SO over uni.

Mick got up this morning and decided it was too cold and wet today to paint...so he went to Bundy to pick up this beautiful beautiful camera...I am dying to play!!!
Sam and I hung around the house, trying to keep warm.
We decided to wander down to the shops, so we set out...and we fell over...on the road! How embarassing! Luckily it was just outside our house, and no one else saw. Poor Sammy got a big graze and a bruise on hie forehead and his hand. I bought his happiness again with a Kinder surprise...
My wrist was hurting so I spent the whopping sum of $0.20 for this pretty book in the op shop...
Oh, and I got a notice to go pick up a parcel today. I spent all morning in a fit of excitement..I love parcels! I thought it may have been my Studio Calico kit from the states (although i couldn't hear any choirs of angels announcing its arrival...)
It was my Bella! kit that I won last month for Scrapjacked! Just check out how generous they are! look at all this STUFF! All that yummy chipboard and ribbons...SO excited!!!
Oh yes! And a RAK winner...I got Nat to pick a number between 1 and 7...and she chose 3! So Kerryn...you are the lucky winner of my little prize! (I think I have your addy somewhere!) Definitely going to do this again, it was FUN!
So...off I go to watch the little light on the battery charger. I shall be back tomorrow with some FAB photos...I hope this thing magically improves my skillz! LOL
