Well this seems to have turned into a weekly blog - i never seem to have anything really interesting to share, just layouts from throughout my week...and that must get a little boring after a while.

I have been busy, i know that i have been short of time the whole week - i'm just not sure what it is that i've been doing LOL.....must be losing my mind i think. Maybe i'll just do some highlights of our week

- Maddy was awarded an achievement award during assembly last week = she was sooo proud of herself....and i was equally proud. Her teacher had given me a heads up so i was able to have my camera there to capture the moment for her - she's such an awesome teacher. Wonder if maddy's told her i'm a scrapper hence the need for photos LOL.

- still going for my walks through the botanical gardens every now and then. I love it - its so quiet and peaceful. Even Rylan must think so, he rarely speaks throughout these walks, just happy to sit back in his pram for the hour we walk. Sometimes he gets a bit excited by the birds and ducks we might see and will give a squeal out ...which will scare the ducks away lol.

- taught my first class up here last night. WHAT A GREAT NIGHT WITH SOME AWESOME COMPANY!! It went really smoothly and I really enjoyed it. Have another class wednesday night. Love seeing the way each lady makes the layout their 'own', just by making slight changes or adding something a little different.

- Rylan took another spill the other night, so has a scrapped nose at the moment. This poor kiddo is seriously having a bad run since we've been up here. But the nose is healing nicely and its not bothering him. I guess it just comes with the age - being clumsy and that. He's fast approaching his second birthday - 18th march - and is such a character at the moment .....he is always cracking us up with some silly thing he does.
- Have been scrapping up a storm lately, think i have done like nine layouts. Man it must seem like i don't have a life lol. But i will usually get one done through the day when rylan goes down for his nap and then will usually get another done at night once the kiddo's have gone to bed. So no, I am not glued to my scrap desk and i do manage to get everything else I need to do round the house done. The kiddo's and I have also been getting out and about in the afternoons for a little exploring around town - trying to suss out our favourite spots here in Rocky.
Unfortunatly out of the nine or so layouts i am only able to share two at this stage. Most were done for the March kit - soon to be released at Embellished, keep an eye out for it, is AWESOME!! But i'll be able to share these layouts next post. a couple were for challenges coming up, but again will be able to share them next post. So will share these two:

This layout was a 'just for fun, just for me' layout that i put together at a scrap night round at Ali's (now that was a fun night!!). I love this pic of maddy, she has the most awesome natural laugh, though it is hard to get it out of her, when you do it is just like magic - i love this girl sooo much. So hopefully this layout was able to capture a little of that with in it.

This one is my sample layout for the latest Elsie challenge at Embellished - to tell a story. Rylan has a thing for my oversized sunnies, just these ones - he pays no attention to any others left laying around. No matter where i put them he will track them down and walk around with them , usually around his neck lol. This kiddo definetly has FUNK!!!!

Okie, well i've just put little man down for his nap in Nick's bed - gonna see how he goes in a bed during the day instead of his cot, just to get him used to it. so far so good, lol but then its only been five minutes.

Better run, got a few things to do while he's down for his nap. Take care and will catch up again soon.

HI Julie, I pleased you had fun at your classes. Loving your layouts, they are just so striking.

It must be how we women scrap, I am also the same, when Chaise goes down through the day I scrap, and then at night, ooops house work, I do get around to that as well LOL!!

Take care Julie.
