We have sold the house...Finally...... So happy a huge weight has been lifted off our shoulders. Paying off a home loan and rent everyweek really hurt us in the money area so now we are back on track. No more worrying about the house up in Queensland and now we can buy some furniture... YIPPEEEE... No more sitting on camping chairs.. (we have no lounge) Well really we have no furniture.. No dining table... No chest of drawers nothing...lol.... Now I can buy it all.. Cant wait. The house will settle at the end of June. The main question is now "what to do" do we buy another house or do we buy a business or do we sit and wait...... So many questions and not many answers...lol...

I haven't been around for a while because ive been busy busy busy... Now I have the car back I had a lot of general stuff to catch up on and im back helping Mark out at the shop with the paper work and banking and taking Keenan to and from school. The days just seem to slip away. And I love it.

I haven't done that much scrapping over the last week... My Mum... My first go at doodling on a lo....I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I also made a couple of very late mothers day pressies for my mum and mother in law... I made mum the frame and Pam got the mini book...

I would like to wish Shelley and Bruce all the luck love and happiness in the world for there upcoming birth of their first baby...(due today)... Don't forget to let us know when bubba arrives....

Yesterday I got the bargain of the year.... Well I think so anyway.. I picked up this electronic keyboard from the "warehouse" for only 30 bucks.... Yes I hear you saying to yourself... Is that a mis-print...That's right only $30... Marked down from $180.. Mark said I bet it doesn't work.... Well I set it up this afternoon and she works a beauty!!!.. Keenan has been having a ball on it and Jorja too!!!!

Here also are a couple of very cute snaps I took this morning of the kiddies that I wanted to share also.. As u can see Keenan didn't go to school again today.. Really don't feel like going into today because just thinking about makes me mad...

The last few day haven't even had one little thought/idea nothing for an upcoming page.... Maybe I've lost my mojo for now...

that's it for me....

Mother's Day

I've had a pretty busy week the past week....
My top news to date is we are getting our car back today...YIPPEEE.... cant wait to have a set of wheels and be able to get around. I mostly excited about being able to take Keenan to school again and not having to have other people take him and drop him off.
Also Jorja is now crawling...well her own way..lol.. earlier I made a post that she was using her arms to pull herself around.. she is still doing that but is now using her feet to push forward and she can move so much more and quicker around the room... She is loving it... Her favorite spot at the moment is the bottom cupboard on the tv unit.. open close open close.... she will play there for ages as when she closes it the door makes a loud BANG!!!!

I've been doing a fair bit of scrapping the last week. I'm pretty proud of myself.... As some of you girls already know is I done a Kim Archer online class on the 3rd of May... It was FANTASTIC... Poor Kim...she had a problem with typepad (her blog) and the server was down.. So she had an hour before the class to set up a blog with Blogger and re-type the whole class again. But she pulled it off and it was still a great class.. Well Done Kim!!!!.... The layout from that class is above "you are.."
I pulled together "what a looker" pretty quick earlier this week...not very happy with it. It didnt turn out how I had it pictured in my head...Isn't that always the way....

"baby biker" im also not very happy with how this turned out.... I played around with this one for ages and so I just had to get it done.

I also talk about in an pevious post about making a little frame for a friends baby.... Well Cory's bouncing baby boy was born on thursday night.. Wait for it... Denver Mitchell... 8pound 5oz.

Mark went in with cory last night to meet baby Denver and got a couple of snaps for me so I was able to finish of the picture frame with some pics..
Above is the front of the album and below inside the album.. sorry but I had to blur out Denver's beautiful little face as I don't have the mothers permission to put on my blog!!!
I promise I am nearly done....lol...

I'm really happy with the next two layouts.. And yes I finally done another page for Jorja's album. I'm finding it really hard to work "girlie" into my layouts cause im so used to boys pages..

Jorja's first bath..... and Keenan with cousins Jared and Paige on Keenan's 6th bday in 2005.

Well thats it from me this week.. im hoping I have another good week of scrapping so I can make another big dent in my forever growing pile of photos. We all know we have one!!!!

On other news on Tuesday we find out if the latest contact on the house going though.. So fingers crossed. These people seem to be a lot more serious in the house as the got pre approval on there loan before they made an offer and have left a nice deposit. Tuesday will be a very long day for us!!!

I hope everyone has a great Mother's Day and you all get spoilt rotten. Keenan gave me the most beautiful card this morning.... so that has made my day!!!!
Sorry about the long and boring post!!! take care... until next time...

This week i've decided to start my "book of me"... Using the daily challenges over at the scrap heap to get me started.
I've also decided to use the 8.5x11in format... I've never scrapped this size before and im finding it really easy as there is not much space to fill.
All i needed was yet another project to do..lol... Having trouble keeping up with keenan and Jorja's albums as it is... but why not throw another one in. Here are a few of the layouts i've done the last few days.....

The first one is of me in Grade 2... Missing
one of my front teeth..

The next one is my fairy princess outfit that
mum made for me for a dress up day at school.
Mum told me that i made that hat and i "had"
to wear it on the day even though it didnt really suit my outfit!!!!

And me "potty training".... Mum thinks around 2 and a
half 3 years old... ohhh sooo cute.. LOL

I have some more layouts to share, but will over the next
few days..
I took a Kim Archer online class last wednesday which was
UNREAL... and i've also completed another page for
Keenan's album and have one sitting on my desk now half done. Well share all these layouts soon.

Well catch you all next time...

Mark had to work today so I didnt do anything fun for my birthday..My brother Martin and sister in law Kellie popped in to give me a little pressie and a yummy mud cake with candles and party hats to match..lol...I've promised tonight I will blow out my candles and wear my party hat...lol...I will share some pics tomorrow.
My mum also dropped by and gave me a beautiful bracelet...Which I love
Mark gave me some scrapping money which I've already spent...lol... Couldn't wait..lol
Come you girls understand.
So im just planning a quiet night at home watching the Tigers on tv and having a couple of drinks.
Oh and of course my CAKE!!!

Other than that not much has been happening in My World these days. We have put the car in to be fixed and should have it back this week..YEAH cant wait.
And we got yet another offer on the house. Signed the contracts last week, and just just waiting for the cooling of period to end and its all done. So keep your fingers crossed for us.
Keenan and Jorja are doing great. Jorja is teething and not sleeping though the night. I got two hours sleep last night!!!
