I know it's bad, but...

She just loves it so much! McDonalds that is. I dont really like McDonalds all that much so we dont go too often, but the kids absolutely love it! Em didnt go to school today because she is "sick", so she had to come to the shops with me, and of course she talked me into buying her Macca's because it is her birthday tomorrow. I think she really liked the fact that she could rub it in Jacks face this afternoon that she got to go to Macca's and he didnt. So much for telling her that it was our little secret! Now I'm going to have to take him there when Em isnt around just to even things up, or I'll never hear the end of it!

My Minds Eye - Dreamy 2 - Layout

I just finished this page of Emma using my huge stash of My Minds Eye papers. This is the 3rd page I have done using this range and I have enough for at least 4 or 5 more. I love them, they are so nice and thick, and the colours are just gorgeous! Hmmm, now what photo shall I scrap next?

Emily's Hawaiian Pool Party!

Emily had her much longed for "Hawaiian Pool Party" yesterday for her 6th birhday. She thought she was the cutest thing ever in her grass skirt and lei, and wearing her new bikini. We had about 20 little guests arrive at 2 o'clock, and I had organised some party games but all they wanted to do was jump in the pool! Poor Em had been complaining of a tummy ache all day and about half an hour into her party she started throwing up. After that she was a bit sooky and sad and she didnt eat any of the party food. And she didnt end up playing any party games that we played like pin the trunk on the elephant and musical statues. She did get into the lolly hunt though. For her birthday cake I made her a "Hula Girl" out of a barbie cake tin. It was so easy! And she loved it, although she didnt want to eat any. She did have fun, being the centre of attention and hanging out with all her friends. She unwrapped all her presents at the end and just sat on a chair while all her friends fussed over her and passed her present after present to open. Her very favourite present was a little make up kit which she had to open and play with straight away. She is such a girly girl these days and hardly a tomboy at all anymore. As much as I love seeing the kids have so much fun, I have to admit that I'm glad the kids parties are out of the way for the year. It always stresses me out!

Birthday Layout - 5 Candles

I cant believe almost a year has passed since I took these photos of Emily. Back then I couldnt believe my baby was 5, and now she is almost 6!!! I sure wont be getting much scrapping done this weekend because she is having her "Hawaiian Pool Party" on Sunday and I havent really organised anything yet, apart from sending out the invitations. I'm going to try and sneak in a bit of scrapping somewhere though. I'll have withdrawls otherwise!!!

Autumn Leaves Layouts

I did these 2 layouts for a kit at Fancy That using Autumn Leaves papers. They are definately not something I would have chosen myself but I was actually quite happy with how they turned out.

2 NEW LAYOUTS - Heidi Swapp and Basic Grey Marrakech

Here are just a couple of layouts I did yesterday. The top one is using Heidi Swapp papers and the second one is using Basic Grey Marrakech papers. I dont really tend to use a huge amount of blue papers, especially for pages of Emma but I really like how these turned out. I finally ended up finishing off the "Cousins" page, which I was really stuck on the other day, although I still think it needs something else!

Those Little Rascals!

They drive me insane at times but what would I ever do without them? It's so hard to get a photo of them together these days but today when I tried to take a pic of Emmas newest lost tooth, Jack jumped in next to her for a quick photo. I couldnt believe my luck! One shot and I got a pic of them both together, both looking at the camera and both smiling. Cant wait to scrap this one!

Computer Addiction!

I can't believe that up until about 6 or 7 months ago I didn't have a computer. These days I cant imagine life without it! I've never really kept a journal but now that I have my blog it's just so easy (and fun!) Then I discovered facebook a couple of months ago and now I cant resist popping on there every time I turn on the computer. The other day I found a few good scrapping challenge sites that I want to try out (if I can find them again) so that will be something else that I will probably get hooked on. I wonder what I used to spend all my "spare" time doing before I had the computer???

Well, apart from wasting time on the net, I have been doing plenty of scrapping lately. These are just a couple of pages - I will put more on here soon!

And this page with cute photos of Emma dancing in the front yard is in the current issue of Scrapbook Creations. She is such a little groover!

I Love This Page!


I really love this page I did the other day using the Basic Grey Porcelin papers. It's definately my favourite at the moment!

My Little Singstar!

He tried to convince me that it was "boring" and that he hated it but his secret is out! Jack loves singstar! He always refuses to play when we set it up, but today when Emily was at school (while he was at home with a "sore neck") he asked me to play it with him and he sang his little heart out! After about an hour or so I had to do some other stuff (housework) and he stayed on there and sang by himself to "practice".
