Challenge day 2

Well nothing like procrastination to start the day LOL.

I thought I'd upload the next two LO's in my favorites challenge.

This one is one I did recently of Mark and I. It had been a long time since I had done a LO about the two of us always doing ones about our kids.

The next one is a calendar I did for my Grandma. I love the colours and especially the photo in this one. I used the same papers as in the one of Mark & I, but they go so well with a bright photo or a B & W one.

Well gotta rush right now, nappy to change and school work to do :)

Well here I sat finally updating my blog, just about finished and yep I lost it AAARRRGGGHHHH!!!.

Well the most wonderful
Chris Millar has inspired me to get blogging again. Thanks Chris :) It's been 6 weeks since I posted anything, can I use rehersals for the play, homeschooling and work as an excuse?

So last year in early December I started rehersals for "The Odd Couple". This has been a great couple of months doing this and it really is a fantastic cast. The play opens next Friday and there are going to be a few late nights getting everything set to go. Our set builder Terry has been ill so that's going to be a mad dash for the finish line getting the set finished. But somehow I don't think the set will be the main attraction anyway. This really is a funny play & I even have a hard time keeping a straight face delivering my lines. So for a great night of laughs, come and check it out if you can!!

The first week of January we had a week up at the beach house in Maroochydore, the kids went swimming & we finally got my dad to let me ski behind his boat. After we got back to Brissy I get a phone call from my Dad saying he's putting the boat in and wants to teach my sister and her girls how to ski, do I want to come up for the day again. HELL YES!!!! That was a great day of skiing, kneeboarding & tubing. I had fun driving the boat also. Just can't wait for the motorbike to sell & buy our own boat.

On the 23rd of January was Holly's first day of Grade 1 and Hannan's first day of Prep. Although it was a bit of a first day with a difference. We are home schooling and enrolled in
Groves Distance Ed program. So far we are loving it and so glad we took on the challange. Holly though spent the first day at the dentist getting a general anesthetic and 4 stainless steel crowns on her teeth. She did great & loves her silver teeth.

Okay now for the challange. This was on Chris Millar's site and I thought I'd give it a go. It was created by the very talanted
Ali Stafford.

I want you all to post in your blogs 10 of your layouts. It doesn't matter if you've already uploaded them to your blog before - just think of it as giving us all a "refresher". Now - these 10 layouts - they have to be a *certain* 10. I want to see the 10 layouts which are either:(a) your favourite 10 layouts; or(b) the 10 layouts that you're most proud of; or(c) 10 layouts that have some really special significance*** ; or(d) a combination of any of the above!*** I know that *all* our pages are special and signficant - but i'm referring to those layouts that really have that extra "meaning" to you...

So here we go, i'll post 2 a day (gotta keep you comming back for more LOL).

Here's a fairly recent one. I just love the photo and the jouranlling. Mitch is a full on boy, a little cyclone and sooooo loud!! But he has a real soft spot for his mum.

The next one is one of my daughter Hannah, again I love the photos and how tiny she looks in the train seats. She has such an innocent personality and is often the one who silently watches and listens and is just taking so much in.

Well that's it for today, gotta get kiddies to bed & finally put some stuff on eBay I have been meaning to do for ages.
