What a day

Emma's birthday party was a huge success. We ended up with 20, 9 and 10 year olds running around madly laughing and having loads of fun. The pool was a big hit and it took so much effort getting them out for lunch. We gave the children all a pool noodle as part of their goody bags and ended up having horse noodle races across the pool. So funny to watch them all. I could not believe how well behaved they all were. Emma was totally spoilt rotten and received some beautiful presents. One little boy gave her a silver necklace from Prouds jewellers. I wouldn't mind it myself actually lol.

Emma and the "boys"

Girls doing what girls do best (posing)

Pool noodle races

more pool noodle races (too funny)
So glad that we have a big pool otherwise it would have made things a bit squishy
take care and stay safe

Oh dear

I don't know what I have got myself into. Am starting to get a bit nervous now as Emma has her party tomorrow which equates to 20 - 9 and 10 year old girls and boys running around silly at my house. I must have been temporarily insane when I said yes to a pool party. ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Hopefully all will go well and the children will be well behaved. Stuart will be sitting them down and telling them the rules so fingers crossed they all follow them........

Instead of buying heaps of lollies for their goodie bags I bought them all a pool noodle (seeing as it is a pool party) and a few other little things. I am praying that the weather stays nice and that they all go home completely tuckered out.

If I survive tomorrow then I will come back and tell you all about it LOL

Busy busy Busy

Haven't been around much as I have been super busy. Have been creating loads of layouts for Kaiser craft but unfortunately I cannot share any with you at the moment.

Finished up at work on Friday, not a lot to tell wasn't working out for either of us so I left. It isn't a bad time to be finishing though with the Christmas holidays fast approaching. Have heaps to do around the house between now and then. We had new awnings put on the house last week which look great and then we are getting the air conditioner being put in the office on Thursday (thank goodness). It is like a sweat box in here of an afternoon.

Am putting the finishing touches on Ems birthday party organising this week. Her birthday is not until January 4 but we have let her have a party this weekend as this is her last year at her current school. So it is more of a going away/birthday party. Her invitation list had 34 names on it. We invited them all but thankfully so far only 18 have RSVP'd. I don't know why I do this to myself. We are having a pool party here at the house so hopefully they will occupy themselves in the pool for the whole 4 hours (yeah not likely)

Anyway still so much to do. Have been trying to get my December daily album done but alas I am not having much luck (time management issue)

Hope this finds you all happy and healthy

I found an awesome website not that long ago and thought I would share it with you

Wordle: GIRLS Wordle: BOYS

Go to WORDLE you will have so much fun playing around with it. You can do heaps of fun stuff with words.

Have vreated another three layouts using the FANTABULOUS digital kits from KAISERCRAFT DIGITAL but cannot show you yet. I must say that the jingles kit would have to be my fav - well actually I like them all.........

Well that is it from me. Stuart is taking me out today to buy a new 22 inch HD monitor for my computer, yah then in a couple of weeks I should get my new laptop (am begging for a lime green one from Dell but am not liking my chances)

Hope you are all having a brilliant weekend.

Port Stephens

What an awesome weekend I had at Kim Archer's Inaugural retreat (the BESTEST ever) Kim left no stone unturned when she organised this and the effort that her and the support team girls went to was amazing. Brilliant!!!!
It was awesome to finally put bodies to heads so to speak when I finally got to meet heaps of the girls I chat to online. I will remember this weekend for a very long time and hopefully Kim will do it all again next year (fingers crossed)

To Janelle, Mardi, Kim, Mel and Yvette thank you so very much, I had so much fun and I have you girls to thank. xxxxxxxxx

Sheree thank you for being my travel partner and thank you Christine for being my camping buddy lol

I have also completed a couple of layouts as part of my Kaiser CT requirements. Just love their digital kits and if you do scrap digitally then go have a look - you will not be disappointed. The boy layout is created using the Tough and Tumble kit and the Tayla layout using the new Hideaway kit .

Look out Kaisercraft - HERE I COME

Digital creative team unveiled!
by Rainie
It’s finally time and we could NOT be more excited…our digital creative team is finally being announced
After careful perusal of everything we received (and there were some doozies, believe us…we’re still drooling over some), we are thrilled to introduce our new digital creative team and show you some of the work they submitted for our consideration.

And now, to introduce our digital team (photos of each member to come later in the week):

Leanne Love
All it took for Leanne to become hooked on scrapbooking was a stroll past a store’s window display of pretty papers – she says she hasn’t stopped since then but started digi scrapping seven months ago and throroughly loves it. She can be inspired by anything from home magazines and advertising to scenery and her children, and her scrapping style is dictated by the photos and products she uses, as well as her mood. Leanne says she is willing to try anything and has been published in several magazines.

Well there you have it, my exciting news. I am so excited and cannot wait to get a start on it all. I was totally speechless yesterday when I got the email and was just dying to tell everyone.

WOO HOO bring it on
Leanne :-)
