Last day of the month, of the year, of the decade. Wow where did that 10 years go???

I remember NYE 1999 quite vividly - it's probably my last big night out, if truth be known LOL There was all the hype about the new millenium, the turn over from the 1900s to the 2000s, what if the computers all break down!!!! We celebrated at Werris Creek Golf Club with lots of old friends & 11 days later we were all packed up to move down here. Lots has happened since then.....

I'm having a quiet night home with Riley tonight, have already taxied the others around to parties - I'm just not in the partying mood at the moment. Although we are going out to a friend's BBQ on Sunday & I'm looking forward to that.

In scrapping news - I finish my Guest Stylist gig at ScrapBoutique tonight. I have loved every minute of it & am very grateful for all the support shown to me by Chels, Manon, Liz & Emma, & of course all the forum girls. But there just may be other gigs on the horizon.....time will tell!!!!

I filed all my LOs the other day - 307 for the year - not a bad total I guess :) I now have lots of catch up work to do on my albums, so I think I'll dedicate the next week to that, before I start on any new challenges.

See you all next year!!!!!!!

A few favourite photos of our lovely Christmas Day together!!!!!!!!

Wednesday, December 23, 2009



Seems I'm still in a bit of denial LOL Plans had to change today, & I am now going shopping tonight - most of the big shops are open to midnight. Hopefully everyone else is at home in bed & I won't have to worry about fighting for a park, or waiting in lines.

Had a great day at Chelsea's on Monday, scrapping with Kate & Ros as well. The kids had a ball together, once they got over the girls vs boys sort of thing :) Thanks Chels for having us around, when all you probably wanted to do was vege out after being so busy!!!!!

Managed to scrap 3 LOs, in the middle of chatting & eating & shopping & watching the kids enjoy the pool.

Em's Cybercrop Sketch challenge

Em's Monthly Challenge

Inspired Blueprints Sketch

And these ones are what I completed for the Boutique's last cybercrop for the year.

Manon's Story Challenge

Chelsea's Lucky Dip Challenge

Liz's Card Sketch

And my original Roast LO

I've also completed December's Scrap the Girls Challenge - check out the criteria here.

Am now going to enjoy some catching up scrapping - I finished Manon's little Christmas album, just have to go through last year's photos for it. And I have lots of TP stuff to work on - my Yearly album, friendship album & Christmas journal, just to name a few.

Starts tonight. Check out all the challenges here. It's my turn to host Bingo & the Roast on Sunday night.

Not much else happening on the scrapping front. These are my projects I did for the Diva's DT competition.

This first one had to be presented as an online class. It's now winging it's way to my Secret Santa recipient.

The second one had to use the colours from the Diva's website.

The third was a 6x12 sketch & card challenge.

And Michelle has finally made her decision & has appointed Helen & Nat to the Diva's DT team. Congratulations girls - you are both awesome Divas:)

These were my LOs I created for Scrapbook Diva's Christmas Extravaganza. Michelle sent me a very generous pack of product from LYB 25 Days of Christmas. Decided to keep them fairly simple, to show off the detail of the pps, so only added a little embellishment - loved the transparencies & the journal spots.

The 13 days of Christmas projects are still available on the free classroom blog.

She looked gorgeous in her funky little dress, her high heels & her tousled hair.

My little girl is definitely growing up:)

The TickLed Pink girls got together for our Christmas lunch today. Here they all are with full tummies (one in particular in the front LOL)

And this is what I ate for my lunch. Words can not describe how yummy it was.

Miss T organised us all to make a page for a little baby album for Kirsten, who is due in January. It came together beautifully & we presented it to the expectant mummy today - she was very touched.

We exchanged Secret Santa presents - I got a lovely scarf & a book, from Erin. See, things don't stay secret around us for very long!!!!!!!!

I finished off some more Christmas cards last night - some for a card exchange at Divas & the rest for the TP girls. The cards were based on a Kassazz card. Very simple to make & the girls loved them.

Things have slowed down at ScrapBoutique, after the hecticness of getting the Christmas Workshops ready. There were some great projects & I've decided to work on them in January, so they'll be ready for next year LOL There's no way I'll get anything finished before Christmas now.

And we're cybercropping at the Boutique next weekend - some last minute scrapping before Christmas, that will be fun for sure!!!!

Still having alot of pain in my leg, so will have to try & get into the dr again this week. It definitely needs further investigation, I can't continue much longer the way it is.

And here are a few LOs I did at Peta's Christmas Crop a couple of weeks ago. Had a great day with lots of laughing with the norty girls.

This one was for Rach's challenge at Diva's.

This one was from Kate's sketch. Her sketches are great to do.

And the last one was a blind challenge from Peta.

So where did those 10 days go?????????????

Haven't been able to sit at the computer for too long because of my very painful leg. Hoping to get some relief today with some Bowen Therapy.

Back soon for a LO share.

and the 12 Days of Christmas Extravaganza has started over at Scrapbook Divas. Pop into the free classroom blog & check out what the talented divas have to offer in Christmas cheer!!!!

Michelle has asked me to do a project for next week :)

I've posted my first workshop up at the Boutique today - it's not too late to purchase access to the exclusive workshop area. And even though the kits sold out, alot of the projects can be made with your own stash.

I've really loving my time as Guest Stylist - the girls are all so patient & encouraging with me - and I'm stoked that people are doing my challenges!!!!!!! I have to admit, in the beginning I was worried that no one would want to complete them. But the proof is in the gallery - which is a relief.

Talking of relief - it is so good to have a much cooler day today. I sweltered badly yesterday with our air con not working. Couldn't even bring myself to do any scrapping until about 11pm last night.

Ok one more load of washing to hang out & then I'm back into my CC challenges - only have until tonight to get them finished.
