Reading: The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas

Yep. So much for my post a week thing I was trying to achieve...

The new layouts have been posted over on the AussieScrapJack blog! Run, don't walk over there to see them. Some amazing inspiration! :) Here is my layout:

OOPS! Off to be published!!! :) :)

Yep. It's about my cat eating my bird. I don't think I'll ever truly forgive him for that.

And I am in the middle (and by middle, I mean I have just started) of making this scarf:

Just so you know. That's not me. My hair is not that pretty. However, I am pretty sure my scarf will be though because it is such a nice pattern! Here's a link through to the original site.

I even thought since I have been gone for so long, that I would include a book report.

I must admit, I wasn't aware that this book was a young adults book. That being said, I think the book was great. Say 4 out of 5. It is well written. It leaves finer details out, because lets face it, we all know what went down, we don't really need specifics. I was slightly disappointed my daughter didn't want to read this book. I guess there weren't enough dragons or elves in it to hold her interest. Not to worry. It's a quick and easy read since it is only 216 pages long.

Well, that's it from me tonight. I need some beauty sleep. :)


  1. Saw this as a tiny photo of your lo in daphnes fb stream - think cause she commented and thought - god that looks an awful lot like Beths work - she must have done some lifting. Lol

    fingers crossed we get good luck at the oppies today - ps hurry up woman!

    love the scarf/cowl!! what are teh leaves - are they from the $1 wall haul?? that had leaves on it didnt it?

  2. Nah the leaves are misted. I got a Basic Grey chipboard sheet and covered up all but the punched out shape and went to town. :)

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog, Beth :) You have some lovely pages here, and congratulations on becoming a SM Master - I cannot believe the stash you received!!! I recently read "The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas" too, and really liked it - I have to say the ending completely shocked me though!

  4. That book is on my to read list....perhaps I could borrow yours lol
