I Love GetTogethers!!!!!

Not too sure where to start so will just start rambling and see where i end up LOL. First off we have a Grand Final BBQ today, should be fun - even if it is about footy (sorry guys, am sooooo not a footy person). Is a fantastic chance to get together though with friends, and will be Steven's last opportunity to do should be an AWESOME day today.
Maddy had her face painted while we were out yesterday, they did a pretty cool job with it and I of course had to take a pic of it when i got home. Had a play with the pic in photoshop and came up with this, thought it looked pretty funky and was the first photo that i scrapped at the crop i went to last night.
So have attended my could very well be my last midnight madness crop..........unless anyone wants to offer up babysitting services lol. And it was such a fantastic night. The ladies are just a laugh a minute and its not surprising that we never get much just a shame that it got moved back to once a month instead of it being fornightly like it used to. But yeah, definetly a great time last night and i manage to get a couple of Scrapgenie layouts done that I liked. Just have to scan them so will share next time.
If anyone's got the new For Keeps mag then flip to page 20 i think it is, have a layout in the sports star gallery......Little Nicholas with his skateboard - he was pretty proud of himself lol. Oh and i also got a couple of emails this morning from Basic Grey. They accepted a couple of layouts into their gallery ........ thats probably not a big deal, but i was heaps excited lol.
Will be hosting the October DT challenge on the Embellished forum , all details will be posted up Sunday evening but here's a little teaser just to get you all interested lol. So come and have a looksie, there are always heaps of challenges and comps going on there. And HEAPS of great company, they are an awesome bunch of ladies and are always gasbagging lol - seriously, join in on one of our Cyber Crop nights and you'll see what i mean LOL. But I'm getting off topic - not a hard thing for me to do lol. So full details for the DT challenge will be posted up Sunday night, have a looksie, have a go at it and post in the gallery so i can then have a looksie.
Round one for Idol finished up at Embellished and the votes have been cast. Congrats to the ladies that got through to the next round.......your work was AWESOME!! So the next round topic was to scraplift a choice of the four given layouts. All four layouts were pretty awesome - here they are HERE if you wanna see the originals. Not only did you have to scraplift though you also had to go with a 'Ten things i am thankful for' theme, so this made it all very interesting then. I really wanted to have a go at this one and of course i chose the Elsie design, surprise surprise LOL. So i sat at my desk and just went for it, didn't let myself stop to think about it too much and this is what I came up with...... is very pink for me - but i like.

Well i think thats everything for now, better go and start getting ready to head out soon. Thanks for popping by guys, take it easy.................and hope you all have an AWESOME WEEKEND........even with the footy on LOL!!!
