Another one...

Well just thought I would pop in before my family sit down to have our own little christmas party and watch the Carols in the Domain. Steve thought it might help the christmas spirit if we had our own little party of lollies,popcorn etc with the kids and watch the carols. I thought this was really sweet of him because he HATES watching carols byc andlelight!!!He took the kids to the supermarket and bought some lollies and they had a big sleep this afternoon so they could watch them!So while they were asleep I did the December Sketch challenge for Anna's craft cupboard.

Its a layout of Maya with her face painted at the Glaxo christmas party a few weeks ago.Really need some new girlie papers I have decided. Have used these heaps.Mum is giving me some October Afternoon papers for chrissy so cant wait to use them. Might need to stock up on some girlie things after chrissy though. strugglingto find any nice,bright girlie papers in my HUGE stash! ( I know ...hard to believe!!!)

Well, goodnightand thanks for popping by, Eb xxxx

Wow! A double......!!!

The sketch over at Scrapablity Sketches this month is a double LO!!!you an check it out here.
I normally hate doing doubles but am quite happy with how mine turned out.....
I also got my secret santa pressie from the boxx today...well at least i think it is.There was no card or names on it so I am only presuming.Here is what I was lucky enough to get.

Apparently more poor secret santas pressie got returned to them because it had the wrong postcade and in the process got damaged.So they had to send goodies instead.I actually have the papers to match these embellies too...thanks secret santa!

Well school holidays have started todayand have already broken up a few fights between my two! ARGH!Sometimes they play so well together and other days it is like living in a nightmare!!!Maya doesn't like sleeping through the day when Wills home so that doesnt help!

I have finished all mt DT commitments and pressie making so I am hoping to scrap some just because I can LOS over the next week so will let you know I go with those!

Thanks again for popping by....Eb xx

Over at Scrap the Girls this month the challenge was to scrap a christmas LO using non traditional colors. The criteria was to use christmas song lyrics in the title, bling, orange cardstock or paper and a yellow embellishment.Here is what I did.......

I was really happy with the way it has turned out and it was really awesome creating a chrissy LO using non traditional colors!!!

Well off to scrap...its really hot here today so a great day to be inside! Thanksfor popping by, Eb xx

Don't you hate it...????

......when you have to pay for forgotten appointments!!!!! I just received a $35.00 bill because amidst all the chaos with christmas and school functions etc I forgot (and Steve!!!) about Will's follow up appointment with the surgeon who removed his tonsils!!!I feel like such a bad mother.How could I forget about this??? Just SO much going on right now...my head is spinning! Because she was away for all of November they put our follow up appointment back to the 4th of DEC....and I just clean forgot!Such a long time after the surgery.

Are you all organised for chrissy?? I think I am nearlly there!!!! I have been making different gifts which I wont post on here in case some one sees who shouldnt!!!

I havent had any time to scrap lately only fulfilling my DT commitments but here are some things to show you!

Firstly, here is my take on the December Sketch on Paula's....

I really enjoyed this sketch and these photos of Will playing in the sprinkler were just perfect for these Bo Bunny papers.

ForScrapapple this month we were given some black and silver chrissy papers to playwith. We were asked to make christmas cards and add another dominant color. I added pink and aqua to mine I only managed 3 cards though.

Also I got to pick my kit fromScrapapple this onth soI chose some really cool WER Memory Keepers papers (TWIRL) and some awesome scrapware chipboard houses. The theme was ne years resolutions. Well mine obviously!! now is to be more organised and less forgetful so I made a journal/diary. I went to the local stationers shop where you could buy different sets of diaries,notes,calendars etcalready with holes etc tocreate your own diary. I made some covers and inserts and this is it......

These are just a few photos.You can see more here.I have also used MUMS CROCHET FLOWERSand lots of NELLIE G DESIGN, Yvette Adams journalling spot and some good old thickers.

Lastly a huge CONGRATULATIONS to BEKKY and her hubby at Scrapability Sketches on the safe arrival of TRINITY ELISE.

While Bek has been away Kerry organised a blind scrap. I have never done one of these before and it was fun. Not my fav LO(love ours though Kez!!!) but here it is....

Well better head off and get my boy from school...thanks for popping by! Eb xx

...I haven't posted for awhile. It is crazy at the moment!! So much going on!Chrissy shopping, parties,assemblies....you know how it is. I have got so many pressies I still want to make and some DT commitiments awaiting me on my desk!Maya had her last day at Playgroup today which we finished off with a party and we also had our street christmas party on the weekend.We have one every year where all the families put in some money and hire a jumping castle, and santa visits us. Maya was the real little socialite! Will was very subdued...not feeling well and unfortunately we have had some bullying issues in the street so we had to deal with that...but hopefuly now this wil be the end of it and Will can happily play alongwith the other boys and girls in the street!

What have I got to show.....

Well this was my last entry for Scrapability sketches comp.......( I didn't win unfortunately!!)
I created this LO about Will's helicopter adventure.

I have signed up for another lot of Kim Archer's christmas classes. One idea was this fanatstic notes/cards folder. I think I will give this to Will's school teacher with some other goodies

I also made this christmas collage that Mel Nunn was teaching. I really love how it turned out. Might have to make another one that I can keep out all year.

Well thats allI can share at the moment. Hoping to scrap tonight as I have more pressiesto make and some LOs and cards to create. Thanks for popping by.
