Game Playing

Yesterday Sam wanted me to play a Beetle game with him, but i was in the middle of doing some house jobs so i told him to play with his teddies and this was the result... It was very cute to see..

Here is the first layout that I did in the second series of Digital scrapbook classes that Jessica Sprague runs.. Can you tell I just love them..LOL
Have a great day, another day at home for me and the boys, Sam is slowly getting back to feeling a lot better!!

Songbird Avenue

I came across this great Digital scrapping website ~ Songbird Avenue ~ and loved the April kit they have there. It has been designed by Ali Edwards and decided I just had to have it...LOL.. I am also supporting Autism Speaks by purchasing this kit.. I love the blues and brown tones of the kit. Here is a layout i did this afternoon using some of it's features.. So much more to use and explore with, but it's a start..

Everyday Moments

I was reading Jessica Sprague's Blog over the weekend and came across this little gem of a quote..
"Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart.
Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so.
One day I shall dig my nails into the earth,
or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut,
or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return."
~Mary Jean Irion
..and i went through my photos to find the everyday photos that i have taken of the boys, all the incidental moments that i don't want to forget.. i only got as far as January this year and i already had 11 photos..LOL... so I thought i better leave it there...

Cute Photo

Just thought i would share with you a cute photo of Sam and I from Easter Sunday!
I have changed it to have a slight Sepia tone..

I taught a kids class this morning down at the shop. 10 little girls made a photo board to put up in their room to stick their favourite photos on. They were a great bunch a girls and I think all loved their final product..

I have been on a bit of a health kick at the moment and have lost 2.1kgs using weight watchers and trying to up my exercise throughout the week! ( also had my hair cut pretty short..)

Lesson 4

Here is lesson 4 from the digital online scrapping classes I have been taking at Jessica Sprague.. I am now going to go back and redo all the classes using my own stuff and make sure I have remembered all the little tricks from each lesson..

Trip down south..

Here are some photos of our trip down south from a few weeks ago.. We stayed in an awesome place in Dunsborough. The boys weren't that Great (sick and whingy..) But we had a pretty good time anyway!!

Nic loved the tractor ride ~ But we couldn't get Sam on there!!

Sam just loves Ashleigh and Sarah!

We took the kids to Meelup beach for a swim, which was a great fun day..

Claire, Eamon and Damon found an awesome little rock pool called the "Spa " and had a swim.. We had lovely weather for the whole weekend!

The Boys went for a Mountain Bike ride, which they all loved, even after a few stacks and sore legs..
