Lots to share....
Wow, I have been so busy! At the moment I am sprucing up my house to try and sell it and it's taking a lot longer than I thought to get ready. I have so much crap that I have been keeping, like toys that dont work any more and clothes that the kids have outgrown, and lots of other useless stuff, so that has now all been sorted and most of our stuff that we want to keep has now been packed and stored in the shed. I've even packed a heap of my scrapping stuff, although I still have a cupboard full in the house to keep me going (definately couldnt live without that, even for a month or two!) It will be kind of sad to leave, because it's my first house and the kids have grown up here, but I cannot wait to move into a bigger house. We have definately outgrown this one!
Speaking of scrapping, on the weekend I went to the Fancy That Scrapbooking retreat, and taught a couple of classes on Saturday. I was feeling really horrible and headachey the whole weekend and left early on Sunday, and luckily found a doctor that was open. Turns out I had a sinus infection so now I've got some antibiotics to clear it up. I wish I'd gone earlier now instead of putting up with it, but I really hate going to the doctors! I feel like I wasted that kid free time on the weekend cos I was sick and didnt get much scrapping done. It didnt help that I forgot to bring any paper! Plenty of lettering, photos and embellishments but no paper! I had a heap of Kaisercraft papers organised and I had kind of planned what I was going to scrap, but when I got there and set my stuff up, I remembered that I had left all the papers sitting on the kitchen table! I couldnt believe it! So I ended up buying some papers there and I did this layout of Jack and Emma at Easter, using Bella papers. I LOVE those papers, so nice and vintage looking! I did another page too, using some Basic Grey papers but it's not quite finished, so I'll have to put it on here next time.
This is a page I did a little while ago using Kaisercraft Offshore papers, stamps, letter stickers and chipboard and embroidered badges. It's one of my favourite Kaisercraft pages that I have done, and I just love that photo of my beautiful boy. Make sure you check out their blog for the great competition they've got going at the moment!
And lastly, here are some pics of the baby mice. They are so tiny but they are growing so fast! They actually have whiskers now, but no fur just yet!
