Imaginisce I-rock - New Bling!!

If you've been checking out the Imaginisce Blog this week, you'll know all about the NEW BLING for the I-rock...gorgeous new coloured gems, and cute new templates too. For my project, I decided to bling out an altered tin and mini album, using the new green, red and blue Hotrocks...

The I-rock is perfect for adhering the Hot Rocks to ribbon...

I had so much fun making this little tin and mini album, all about our many visits to Australia Zoo. The Kangaroo die cut from the Animal Crackers range was PERFECT for this!!

Phew...! That was a lot of photos, and that only shows a few pages of the mini album! It's amazing how much you can fit into just a small space. I added some finishing touches to most of the pages with the really gives it that extra little something :) I still need to add a bit of journalling, but I'm waiting until the kids are in the mood so I can get them to write down some of their memories. Really have to catch them at the right time for that though! If you'd like to check out some more I-rock projects, then make sure you head over to the Imaginisce Blog.

Now, I know I have been a little bit slack on my blog lately...just so much going on at the moment! I have missed catching up on everyone's blogs, but I'll be visiting soon, I promise!! Hope you all had a fabulous Easter break....I'll be back soon, with lots of photos and scrappy shares.

Hope you are having a great week!!

Imaginisce Little Cutie Layout

Oh my gosh, how quickly are the weeks just flying by? The kids went on school holidays last Friday, so it has been so nice not to have to do the school run in the mornings. I love having the kids at home, the only thing is, I can never get anything done!! I'm in the process of moving my scrap room into the garage, and the kids play room into the scrap room, so I've hardly had time to scrap, but when I got my box of Imaginisce goodies delivered the other day, I just had to have a play...

These papers are from the Little Cutie range, which is aimed at babies, but is really quite versatile, and perfect for scrapping big girls too. I'm so looking forward to having my new scrap room set up so I can have more of a play!! Now, how would you like a chance to win some Little Cutie goodies? Make sure you head over to the Imaginisce Blog, to find out how!!

SUYS Layout - My Minds Eye

Good morning! It's so nice and quiet here at the moment, the kids are still asleep, hopefully for at least another half an hour. As much as I'm NOT a morning person, it is definately worth setting my alarm to wake up a bit earlier, so I can have a cup of tea in peace, before the little rascals wake up. Ugghh...I hate school mornings.

Anyway...I have a layout here that I meant to put up on the 1st, for Show Us Your Stuff...

This layout is based on a sketch, which you can see on the SUYS Blog, and we had to use only pink, yellow and blue on our layouts. I just had to use some of my new My Minds Eye stash for this page. This month we were sponsored by Wicked Princess, which is that blue, yellow and pink flower...

The yellow chenille flower is from Purple Pumpkin, and the pink organza one is one that I bought at a crop day. I just love handmade stuff!!!

And speaking of handmade stuff, did you know that Purple Pumpkin is having a sale this Friday 8th of April? Lots of cute buttons, flowers, kits, and TWINE...

You can see all the sneak peeks on the Purple Pumpkin Blog.

Well, I suppose I should go and make some lunches. I tell you what, I am SOOO looking forward to the school holidays...3 days to go...I can't wait!!

We Have Piggies!!

Yes, it's very exciting...we have two new family members! Meet Nibbles...

And Gizmo...

These little sweethearts came home with us yesterday, and they are completely adored already. They seem to love sitting on the couch with the kids, watching tv!

These little girls were actually part of Emily's b-day present. She has been wanting guinea pigs for quite a while now, so for her birthday I got her this guinea pig house...

It's such a cute little house. Well, it's really quite spacious, with a big grassy run underneath, and a ramp going to the upper level, with is nice and cozy and protected. Em is in love with her babies, (and I have to admit, I've fallen for them too. They are just so adorable :)) Em had a pretty quiet birthday this year. For her party, she just wanted a sleep over with her two favourite girls, Jessica and Natasha, and for me to take them to Australia Zoo, which we did a couple of weekends ago. Unfortunately it rained all weekend, so it was pretty dismal at the zoo...

But the girls still had fun, so that's all that matters! Luckily mum came along with us, so I wasn't walking around wet and miserable all by myself! We only stayed for a few hours, but that was definately enough for me! After we got home, and dried off, it was off to Macca's for dinner! Originally Em wanted to go to Sizzler, but then changed her mind to McDonalds, so they could play on the playground. I didn't really care where we went, so long as it was dry! The girls had fun of course, and played for AGES!

Then it was home again, where we baked some cupcakes, and then watched a movie.

The girls all slept out in the lounge room, and were up giggling until around 11.30. Then the next morning we had pancakes for brekkie, and then it was time to ice the cupcakes...

Did you notice their matching t-shirts? We blinged them up with the Imaginisce I-rock. So fun, and the girls loved it :)

Then a bit of craft...decorating their party bags...

Em had a great time at her little sleepover, and I think I got off soooo easy with the party this year. I hardly had to do anything, not even make the cake!! We had a family party on the night of her actual birthday, but I hardly got any decent photos. Em was being very uncooperative :( Here's the few I did get... This is the crazy looking doll that mum made for Emma...which Em has called "Buttons". She loves it!

More presents...she certainly did pretty well (as usual!), and got heaps of Barbie stuff, a hammock swing thing for her playground, clothes, crafty stuff, a book...and $140. She was pretty happy :)

Here's the b'day cake shot, of the "chocolatey cake with chocolate on top"...

And this is the only family shot I got...Em with her grandpa and poppy...

And then yesterday, Em got her Sizzlers lunch, (where she only eats the potato skins and icecream), and a day out shopping to spend her birthday money...she bought MORE Barbie stuff, craft things, a necklace, a Lego(for Jack), and a basketball.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes left for Em on my blog on Friday. I showed them all to her and she was thrilled :) :)
