I’m back

Sorry to anyone that called my mobile…it is lost, as lost can be!!

My family and I have been in Tasmania for two weeks. We hired a Motorhome and had a ball…. Here are a sneak peek of the 780 photos I took, yes I did actually take that many but I couldn’t help myself with all the beautiful forests, sunrises/ sunsets and waterfall walks we went on….

Jasmine and My mum

Ashton new love FISHING with his Dad

Bryan and his crazy urge to stick his head under the waterfall

Mum, Jaz and I visited Port Arthur and did a special tour of Point Puer (First Australia Boys Prizon)… by far one of my favourite things on the trip

I got up early one morning (5am arrgh) and took many many photos of the sunrise over the beach on the east side of Tasy…

My number one  favourite thing to do this holiday was to search out the stunning waterfalls of Tasmania. I am addicted now. I could seriously do a whole holiday going to see them all.

This one was on a cliffs edge…I totally freaked!!

St Columbus falls the grandest of them all!! This photo doesn’t do it justice

We couldn’t resist going here…. not much of a town though

And another waterfall lol

And lastly a rare photo of me and the kiddies….

It was an awesome holiday and it was sad it had to end but there are always more fun trips plan for the future.

I will be back with layouts I have recieved for the months sketch challenge. If you haven’t seen the sketch check it out HERE.

Bye for now

Last minute entry

Unfortunately I didn’t get my 5 minimum this month to reward a prize. I am sorry about this ladies.  You have to be telling your friends and they tell their friends…then there won’t be a problem lol. I don’t run this challenge at a profit, I hope one day it will catch on and I will get inundated with layouts, but only time will tell. I did get a last minute entry from my darling mother, Maj and here it is…

Thanks to everyone that sent layouts in!

I’ll be back soon with January’s Sketch Challenge…but for now I will leave you with a couple of photos I took on New Years Eve, Coronet Bay beach… no fireworks…but a cracker of a storm!

I am happy to have Tina’s layout to post, thanx for emailing me again Tina, great layout!! And it also has photos of her son playing in the ball pit, too funny as Jes’s one was the same.  All we need now is for a couple of you fine ladies out there to email me two  or more and I can draw a prize….please do cos’ I hate it when I can’t.

Feeling off colour today so I won’t take much of your time, will be sending my laptop for assessment tomorrow, fingers crossed they think it’s not worth the cost repairing it and send me a voucher for a new one…definetly NO HP’s again.

Bye for now, hope your having a great day

Hey everyone,

I hope you all faired well after yesterday… my laptop is doing funky stuff again so post may be less this next month or so..I have to send it back to the repairers…..I am so sick of it…I have had it 2 years now and sending it away again means that they will of had it for 6 months out of those two years…well hopefully they will replace it this time with their No lemon policy! It’s just not right…anyways after my little tantrum I would like to show you two challenge layouts



Gorgeous girls!!!

TINA – If your reading this, please email me you layout again as my laptop doesn’t let me turn it on and it was saved on there…sorry for the inconvenience 🙂

Well ladies, I’m off to bath my daughter, just us girls tonight..kinda nice to just take it easy, paint finger nails and just enjoy eachothers company without the presence of boys…

Last week of school…

Yesterday was crazy hair day at school…talk about crazy colours…I LOVE IT!!

And a huge parcel arrived from Queensland also…Granny and Grandpa Tom sent Ash a birthday present…he couldn’t wait a till today, don’t blame him really so he ripped it up on the front step….

And by the look on his face, I think he LOVES it…..

I can’t believe the year is nearly up. My little Ashton turned 6 today, we had a party last week but today was the official b’day, cake and all.

The best part was being able to finally give him his present that has been hiding in my room under his nose for months….

He loved it…especially the box….first call of action…get in it!!!

It has been great, now all we need is for the rain to dry up so we can take it outside…we live on a dirt road….many pot holes… so that has been the last couple of days…no scrapping I’m afraid but it will come after Xmas I’m sure… but if you want to have a scrapping fix pop over to ScrapAmemory, the girls are doing an awesome job….so many layouts and ideas…

I’m off to bed and hopefully get a good nights sleep…so hot last night!

Till next time, keep scrappin
