Time for me .....

Jamie & Emma ready to head off to a friend's wedding.
 A card I made for one of the boy's mate's 21st birthday.
 A layout that I created last night [or should I say ... this morning !!! lol]. The photo is of Joe & his brothers, not sure what year it is yet, need to do some checking on that.
 Pretty flowers from Prima, soooo lovely I think.
Well that's all for now. Must get ready for a 21st & 50th. Cheers.

Show time ....

It has taken me ALL day to get this posted ... hee hee. I would start it, then go finished something else, then come back but would be interupted again! So now I have finally been able to finish & post.
I thought that I would share my good fortune we my fellow bloggers.
Our local show was on this weekend and I entered some cards and scrapbooking of mine. It was judged and I was thrilled to find that I had 2 firsts & 3 seconds which resulted in me becoming Reserve Champion & Champion for the Open Scrapbooking Exhibit. Due to PINK PIXIE Craft Supplies [my shop] donating prizes for this section [along with other sections], I donated my prizes to some very worthy participants.
 These are my cards I entered, can't recall which one received second prize though.
 This is my cute little mini album about my brother.
 My winning certificates and ribbons.
 Winning page for 'family'
 Winning page for 'special event'
 Thanks girls .... we got second.
Complete entries.
It was great to see a lot more entries this year and some of our kids who attend classes entered items & won too !!! So proud of them.
Joe's mum entered 2 tapestries and a crossstitch & received one First & 2 seconds. She was thrilled and has already started picking what she will enter next year!!
Our shop had a wonderful day. Thanks to everyone for their support.
Ok well I must away now.
Have a great week everyone.
luv me xxooxx

Spud's 21st

We celebrated our youngest son turning 21 this weekend. Party theme was 'Movie Characters'. Simon went as TERMINATOR
 Kirby was a beautiful 'Marilyn Munroe'.
 Such a classic pose.
 We dressed as the KING & QUEEN.
 Emma was such a cutie TINKERBELLE & Jamie played GANDOFF perfectly.
We had a wonderful night with everyone dressing up. There was plenty of laughs, drinking and music, finishing with all going to nightclub to finish off the night.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SPUD. We love you & are very proud of all you have achieved. xxx

Today ......

I found a little friend today visiting my 'blue bells'.
 This is how we have spent the beginnings of our holidays .... painting the outside of our house.
 Cute little green friend .... hee hee.
 Spring is in the air and along with it ... the flowers bloom.
 Amongst the sea of brilliant purple, I discovered a magical creature.
 I love the colour of these flowers against the blue of our fence.
 It's ok to stand out from the crowd !!!
Hope you enjoy & thanks for checking in.

luv me xxooxx
