Aussie, Aussie, Aussie - Oi,Oi,Oi

Well a happy Australia Day to everyone out there in this Awesome country of ours. I hope your all having (or had) a fantastic day, spent relaxing and just enjoying what our lovely 'home' has to offer. They say we are the lucky country........I truly, truly believe this!!!! I swear no other country is as laidback and carefree as ours - fear is not part of our daily lives like so many other countries and for this i am thankful. I am grateful too that my children are able to grow up having a childhood and a life - not just an existance. So Happy Australia Day to all........and the biggest thankyou i can give to the service men and women of Australia - they play an important part in keeping our country's lifestyle the way it is.
Okie so now onto the news of the last week. Sorry if it turns into a mammoth post, i have been so flat out.....the trick now is to remember it all LOL.
First up , Maddison's birthday was last Saturday - my little Bella girl turned 7!!! We took her out to dinner and invited along Ali, Glenn and little lukesta. She had such a great time - smile on her face the wole time. Here are some pix - taken by the lovely miss Ali (since this naughtly mummy forgot her camera). Thanks Al - you got some gorgeous and pretty funny shots on the night. Here are some of my favs:

Doesn't she looks soooo happy!!! And i just love this one of the two of us together.

A great night with some great company!!!

The other news is that my poor little man has had nearly all his hair cut off. Look at these pix of him - it makes him look a whole lot more chubba LOL.

I once said i would never shave any of my boys heads.....well i guess i fibbed. Not that i would of done this if i could of helped it but the poor Heard kiddo's have had their first dose of Headlice - dirty varmits....the headlice that is, not the Heard children LOL. So i spent most of Wednesday washing heads, bedding, covers, cushions - you name it i probably washed it. But i've had some great tips from friends so at least now i feel i can maybe have a fighting chance of keeping them out of the house - lol that probably sounds really niave but we'll see how we go.

Now onto the scrapping front.......have been kept very busy here. Been playing with the Feb kit for Embellished and it is just beautiful. Here's a sneek at it: (okie bloggers playing up so will just have to put a link in for it, but check it out, you will not be dissapointed. )

Febuary's Sneak peek

I also had a few layouts to share, but can only get the one to upload. This one was for the latest Elsie challenge - Find inspiration from Fashion. Had a play around and made up my own transparancy embie - design was based on a print on Maddy's skirt.

Well thats about it for now, thanks for popping by and will catch up again soon.

take care......
