The past few weeks have gone so quickly, just a blur really. I haven't even scrapped. I have however done a little sewing and have almost completed another little bag which I will post once completed.
My little man turned 12 (eek) last Saturday. He managed to get heaps of great pressies and loads of money. We bought him a new mountain bike and with some of his money he purchased himself a rock tumbler (cleans and polishes rocks) We took him out for Japanese as that is what he wanted for his birthday dinner and we were lucky enough to have his nan and pa up for a visit as well. We all had a lovely night and the food was fabulous
Have fallen in love with an antique dressing table and am hoping that I will be able to go and buy it this weekend. It is probably circa 1920's and totally divine.
We had some other exciting news this week. Jacob had his interview at Hillcrest Christian College on Wednesday and was lucky enough to be offered a place there starting next year. Now all we have to do it get Emma in as well. It is a beautiful school and they are so kind and helpful. I am sure that Jacob is going to thoroughly enjoy his next 5 years as a student there.
Scrapping Outback have an awesome cybercrop happening tonight. Carole Janson is taking one of the classes which sounds awesome so I won't be missing that. If you are interested then head on over and give some of the challenges a go.
Oh and finally some exciting news for me. I have been given a position on the Design Team for Butterfly Crafts. My first layout will be up and posted on the website on the 15th of August. I must say that it is a bit of a challenging one which makes it even more fun, really gets you thinking.
Anyway this was only meant to be a very quick update so I will sign off here and come back when I have something to share. Hope this finds you all fit and healthy

Out little man is celebrating his 12th birthday tomorrow. I still find it hard that we have been blessed with him for 12 whole years. They haven't always been easy years and definately never a dull moment with Jacob around but I wouldn't change a single moment.
This was taken last night at the Japanese Restaurant, just Jacob being Jacob
He is going out in the morning with his dad to pick up his new mountain Bike so I am guessing that I will be posting again tomorrow night with photos of that.
Take care and stay safe

Have had a great week. I got my new lens and have been having fun learning how to use it. I did manage to take an awesome photo of a lady beetle that landed on Emmas hand. Pretty cool isn't it?
Next up we visited friends of ours who have just given birth to this cute little man. His name is Kobie and he is such a cutie patootie. He has a little old mans face when he is awake and it is just the sweetest.
I did manage to gt some scrapping done this week as I had to do a layout for the Scrapping Outback "chipboard highschool" challenge
And this was my design for challenge 12 at Butterfly Crafts. You had to create a layout using only your favourite colour. You could however use black or white as well. I love pink and as pleased with how the layout turned out. If you are interested then head on over and take a look.

Has been pretty quite around here lately. Not a lot to share really. I have been sewing more than scrapping lately and will share my creations with you on another post. I have things to create this weekend for Butterfly Crafts so am hoping to share those with you also.
Am looking forward to Mothers day on Sunday. The children are teasing me about what I am getting and they keep telling me that I am going to love it or them so goodness knows what I am going to receive. I am a bit scared about the brecky in bed bit as neither of the children are old enough to cook LOL. I am sure whatever it is that they make will be made with love and basically that is all that matters.
Anyway got to go and finish getting ready for work. Thank goodness it is Friday.
Take care and stay safe
