To the ladies that made the For Keeps Elite Team. Did a little blog surfing the other day to try and see if i could find a couple of them and have to say that after seeing some of their work, For Keeps mag should be looking good for the next year.
Recieved my layouts back Friday (how quick was that!!), well actually i recieved four of them back. When i finally stopped panicking about where it could be and actually read the letter they sent,I found out they are holding onto some for publication, so that is not too bad i guess. I won't upload them here as i already have a bit to share, but they are uploaded to my gallery at Embellished if you wanna have a looksie. They have FK in the title so you'll know which ones they are : here they are
Haven't done anymore packing - been busy having a play with some Scrapgenie kits. Here are some of the layouts, first set was Bobunny's halloween range and i made two layouts and a set of cards with it. The other layout was made with Gin X papers - very bright and fun, layout a little simple though but i like.
Have posted the new Elsie challenge in the Embellished forum. It is to 'Play with paint'. This is my example layout here. Love this pic of Rylan and decided to do a layout about all the nick names the poor kiddo has. Really happy with the way it came together.

Poor kiddo is still fighting the flu he's got, been waking him through the night so we're all a bit tired and grumpy here at the moment. But he's sleeping ok through the day so he's getting the rest that he needs - shame i can't though LOL - oh well, all part and parcel of being a mum i guess.

Still playing around with the December kit for the Embellished kit site , is such a gorgeous and funky kit for christmas. Make sure to check it out next month. This months kit was awesome and i know Ali has a couple left if anyone's after one, be quick though, they'll soon be sold out.

Had a layout in this months Scrapbook Creations - a pirate one, "seek your riches" - but haven't had the layout or the contributors copy turn up yet. They normally are good and you'll get them before they actually hit the stores, so not sure whats happened. Anyone else had their contributors copy show up yet, hoping my layout hasn't gone AWOL.

Little man Nicholas will turn five in a couple of weeks, and me being the slack ass mummy at the moment totally forgot all about it. Normally am on the ball with kids birthday parties. Have decided to cheat this year and have his at Hungry Jacks. They can do all the prep and cleaning lol and at only 5.25 per child i thought it was a real bargain - that includes the party room, a themed setup, hellium balloons, kids meal, activity book and crayons, little gift bag with stickers and a hostess for an hour and a half for games. Can pay an extra 8.50 for an ice-cream cake if i want but not too sure on that, i have always made the kids their birthday cakes but i guess it will depend on how i'm going for time.

Well thats about everything for now, thanks for dropping by guys, thanks also for your comments - always love reading them.

take care and chat soon..............................

just editing to fix the link to my FK entries - should now go to the right place lol.

Love your latest work Julie!!

I can sympathise with poor little Rylan at the moment. One of the hazards of working in a school - you pick up everything that's going around! UGH!
