New layout

I have a backlog of circle journals on my desk so I made a promise to myself that for every CJ I finish I can reward myself with doing a layout. So far I have already finished two that I will send on today.

So I just thought I would share my layout I did last night:
Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Its my DS in the shower. He is such a cutie and I couldnt believe how well the photo turned out! Even when I collected the photos the lady even told me it was great! (Insert blush!)

I have an action packed day ahead of me but for now I am enjoying the fact that the kids are having a sleep in and I am having some "me" time. Aaahhhhh..........

How much???

I have decided to be brave!
I am going to start tallying up my scrapbooking purchases.
*gulp*

$10
$8

total $18

Scrapbooking

So I realised (after looking at Linda's blog) that I havent posted anything about my scrapping!

About 4 years ago a good friend of mine, Justine, was on mat leave from work. SHe came in one day and asked if I wanted to go to an album party.
"Oh ok, albums huh?" Thinking MUSIC albums.....
But she set me straight by telling me it costs $10 and to bring 6-8 photos.
Ooohhhh a PHOTO album party! DER!

It all snowballed from there.

I had never been particularly creative at school so I really dont know why it appealed to me that much....

So I have countless photos in countless albums and I remember almost every single layout I have done. I love my albums and I hope my kids will appreciate them too and their kids and so forth.

I am lucky to be on two design teams for online shops.
The first is www.memorybugs.com.au. This is a great community. I love it there and you will see there everyday!
The second one is www.scrappindreams.com.au. This is also a great site. I am there everyday aswell......

*gasp* What have I done?

I have a blog!!! Hmmm I wonder if I will keep this up? Probably not...........

And without further ado......

2Peas

I have once again become addicted to www.twopeasinabucket.com.
The layouts posted there really appeal to me and the message boards crack me up! I cant believe the catfights in the boards!!! ROFLMAO!!!! Too funny.
Anyway I had been seeing all these "Effer Dares" and thought the layouts were awesome. Really expressive. Not just your standard old BoM pages either. These are deep. I thought - where do I find these dares?!?! Well lucky for me they have their own blog now. So once a week I will *try* to complete the dare. I have put a link on the side to the Everything Effer blog.
Happy Scrappin'!

The wedding

October 28th 2005
I still cant believe that we are *finally* going to do it!
Talk about a spur of the moment thing. As a scrapbooker I wish I had taken note of the day that DF said "when we are at Nambucca do you wanna get married?". Oh well I can always just pick a day - no one but me will know....
