Simon's Graduation ...

We travelled to Millicent tonight to be part of Simon's Graduation night. It was held at the TAFE centre where he actually did all his trade schooling. He has worked hard for the last four years and we are very proud of his acheivement.
This is a copy of his graduation group tonight. Simon accepting his parchment.

Waiting for all his group graduates to receive their parchments.

Posing with a proud mum & dad!!!

It was a nice night for a drive.After the ceremony we were able to take part in a lovely supper. Simon was able to catch up with some of the guys from his trade school group he hasn't seen for awhile.
Well done mate!!!

Not another one!!!!

Hi again.
I have finally finished this layout!!
I have had it done for quite awhile but just needed to add a title and extras. Si while I was on a roll, I completed it today. It didn't take long to add the necesseties and finish.
And ..... I wasn't completely happy with how I left this page. So I did a Susy and added to it!!!
Not much .... just a couple of stamps. hee hee

Thanx for looking.
luv me xxooxx

Layout upon layout ......

I have been trying to get some pics put on layouts for awhile now. I have chosen my photos & had them sitting on my desk in Studio22, waiting to be created into pages.
Slowly but surely I am geting there.
This is a series of photos I took of Jamie at Robe earlier in the year at the Ice cream shop. Mmmmmm ..... gotta love that shop!!!!
I've used Kaiser patterned papers and bazzill in a blue & red. I stamped the title in red paint with foam stamps & marked around the letters with a white gel pen to give them a more 'boyish' look.
I attached this saying as I thought it was cute & a little mischieveous too, hee hee. Well you must have skill in ice cream eating .... mustn't you????

The second layout is of Jamie & Emma's house when they finally became the owners. I'm not sure I like this one now it's finished ????? Mmmmmmm, I'll have to think on it.
Sorry that the colours haven't shown up true, but anyway.

These are definitions out of an old dictionary I used to add a little interest along the bottom of the page.

Well there you have it .... two more pages from me. I must get to & do my challenge page for this month. I couldn't work out what I was going to do!!! After some thinking I have come up with exactly what inspires me, so I'll get to it now.
Joe is off fishing today with a friend so my house is nice & peaceful with just me in it. I have played in my studio, had some lunch, watched - 'ps - I love you' sob, sob, sob (boy how I LOVE that movie!!) and am now about to go for coffee with friends down the street.
What a wonderful life I have and am so grateful for.
So cheerio for now & thanx for checking in.
luv me xxooxx

Well, it's FAIRYLAND!!!!!

Hello there bloggers!
This Tuesday at school, one of my volunteers Fee & I decided to make the canteen into a 'Fairyland'. This is us dressed as fairies ready to rock n roll with the kids!

This is the front of the canteen dressed up with fairies and wands.

Even our wonderful staff joined in on buying some of the yummy goodies that were available for sale. Thanks Rosa for your support!!

One fairy amongst all the kids eagerly waiting to be served!!

My welcoming sign.

We had an absolute ball and the kids brought their money along and happily bought some yummy goodies!! We had fairy cakes, fairy bread, fairy muffins, wand biscuits and mini fairy muffins to enjoy.
Thanks for checking in.
luv me xxooxx
