Im so angry...

I just have to get this out of my head... so if you dont want to know dont read LOL....

I just dont understand some people.. i swear some people just dont have their own brain to think of their own things... what possesses someone to go and copy someone elses work that they have worked hard at doing and it took them ages... why copy it word for word.. seriously cant you think of your own words... im jsut so angry that a friend of mine is upset over this and i can under stand why she is....

seriously people use your head and think of your own ideas dont use other peoples....

ok im off my soap box now back to norma viewing LOL...

This week has been a big scrapping week for me... i think i finally finished off 4 pages that i started probably about 2 weeks ago plus did some other work... Did Jen Halls online class last night as well (although the mini book is not finished thats my first thing im going to do on the retreat)... plus other scrappy things as well.. so an awsome productive week for me... here are some of the pages i can show you all...

this page was for this weeks scrap sketch challenge over at Scrappin Mojo this was using one of my own sketches that i designed...

this was for scrappin mojo also.. this was for this months sponsor.. we were sponsored by Scribble Scrabble this month... was thinking i wouldnt be able to use these papers but once i got going i quite liked them... i also have a boy set that im going to work on as well over the weekend.. and i need to do another girl page also....

these 2 pages are for the retreat Kylie made up some challenge packs for everyone that is attending and she asked me to do some pages to show what can be done with the kits... this is what i came up with... Im also teaching my Heidi swapp clock at the retreat.. so it should be alot of fun....

ok see i told you i had done alot of stuff... and i also have had the flu all week starting to slowly go now which is good as up where we are going for the retreat is absoultly freezing up there at night time so i dont really want it to get any worse...

ok well must go get some sleep dont think ill get much over the weekend LOL...

have a fun weekend all xxxx

More old blog posts

Well i have decided its time to start saving money and go on a serious budget... Im determined to do it this time and really start saving.. this means im on a serious scrap budget... so i was over at shop and crop the other day checking out the forum and was talking about saving money etc... the wonderful Mel was saying she sets herself a challenge that she is not allowed to buy anything until she has completed 20 pages.. So i have decided to take her up on that challenge and try to do this myself as well...So here is page number 1:

ok so im going to try and stick to this.. i will upload my pages here as well as shop and crop.. just so i can keep a track of things....

Well not much else to share with you all today.. I have finished off all my pages for this months EDM theme of Family.. loving this competition so far and im really determined to complete this fully...Well it looks like it is going to rain again today (kaitlyn has her first atheletics carnavil at school tomorrow so cross fingers it dosnt rain too much).. its so cold i wish summer was here soon...have a great day all..

Finally i scrapped.. its been like over a week now since i last scrapped and i was feeling so out of it... i had no motivation what so ever so tonight i sat down put on a movie (got off the computer LOL) and scrapped... although it wasnt a LO it was still scrapping and i totally love what i did... here it is.. my Red Rooster Mug... they are selling these in red rooster for the movie "Over the Hedge" so i went and bought 2 of them when i found out that they came apart and you could scrap them... this one is for myself using my favourite pattern papers of all time Junkitz Flowerful.. love what you can do with these papers...

Love it... ok so hopefully my mojo will stay with me know and i can scrap lots more.. Off to scrapabout Australia tomorrow night for another 8.5x11 class with Alison..cant wait lets see how many pages i can get done...

Oh this makes me 2/20 so only 18 more to go till i can go shopping...

Here are a few pics i was telling you about from our 3 hour bush walk... was sore for 2 days after that episode LOL.. never again...

well im off to bed.. only got 3 hours sleep last night so im hoping for a few more.. and im addicted to a series of books at the moment they are a series called "Stephanie Plum" they are the best books i have read in a long time.. i think there are 12 in the series so far.. and they make me laugh.. they are all about this girl Stephanie who is a bounty hunter and its all about mystery and murder and police things etc... just an unreal story line... so im up to number 6 in the series and i just have to keep on reading them.. i have also gotten my sister into reading them and so i have to keep ahead of her so she can borrrow them off me... so off i go to start on number 6...

Hope you are all having a great week.

Ok so whats been happening.. well not alot really LOL.. Im in a scrap slump again seems i cant do anything at home latley.. maybe cause I spend so much time on this computer.. Must learn to get off it LOL...

Have found an awsome new site that im loving at the moment and thats also keeping me busy LOL... such a great site heaps of challenges and its really diffrent.. everyone on there is so much fun, keeps me laughing.. they also produce an online magazine which is great every month... opps better tell you the site ScrapStreet.. go check it out.. this months street is Main Street Disney just happens to be my most favourite thing ever cause its all about Mickey Mouse....

Ok in other news LOL... went to a great day scrapping with Kylie on saturday.. the lovley Alison was there also.. It was at Sue's house she owns this great online store called Scraploot.. WOW is all i can say.. i walked into her double garage that she has and it is just so full of all the new stuff and much much more... i wish i could have lived there LOL.. spent a bit of money but hey i had saved up for that day so i was allowed to spend up big.. i managed to get 2 pages done.. one was actually a page for this month EDM so was quite happy with how it turned out...

Ok i can also share with you my Zig Zag DT pages i did for this month here they are..

this was part of a sketch challenge for this month using the new gorgeous Urban Lily products

another sketch challenge, I did one 12x12 one 8.5x11 and a card sketch.. you can buy this kit and make them up yourself...

this was just a random page i did using the new Urban Lily papers... my little terror..

Oh also forgot to mention my gorgeous Terror got glasses... she looks so cute in them. she only needs to wear them for reading books, writing and things close up computers etc... she is doing really well with them so far so cross fingers it helps to improve her eyes the doctor said she is about 60% long sited in her left eye so this might help her in getting her words around the right way etc...will take pics of the glasses soon...

Not much else is off to see if i can scrap something now... hopefully ill remember to update this blog a bit more often LOL.. sorry Kylie wont happen again LOL

Manifesto: Noun. A declaration of one's intentions.

Starting December first, I will keep a Christmas journal. In it, I will write something every
day to reflect on the holidays of my past, enjoy the holidays of the present and dream
about the holidays of my future. To some, this will be a stack of papers and trivial
scribbles, but not to me. I am taking back my Christmas, I am letting it be something I
relish and, most importantly, I am giving at least fifteen minutes every day to myself no
matter how crazy this season becomes. I hope you will share, encourage and understand
as I make something with my own hands, my own words and my own memories.

I may post some or all of my entries here. Other artists are doing this with me, and you
can see there work here. Or you may
href="http://www.shimelle .com/classes/ 105/its-beginnin g-to-look- a-lot-like">join

Above all: enjoy the season. I will.

Ok ill be back later on to add some pics of what i am going on about.. in the meantime check out all the others blogs and pics...

well Kaitlyn has settled really well into school she loves her teacher and has made many new friends which im quite pleased about... she has been invited to a birthday party every weekend since she has been back at school... sunday she has another one and then only one more to go LOL... you should see her at swimming lessons now wow she is just a totally diffrent child now since we started going... she even dives in from the deep so glad that she is finally getting it and proud of her as she even got herself out of a bad situation last week where she paniced but she got her self to the edge without any help...

Ok onto more scrapping things... im in 2 competitions at the moment... one of them is over at Little Scrapbook Shop its the Little book of big Memories competition... Cath has some awsome prizes up for grabs also... come and join in you can join in anytime the deadline i think is in may so plenty of time to do your 12 pages... i have done 3 so far so im going good LOL... oh and speaking of Cath ... she started a blog....LSBS Blog.. go and check it out lots of info about her shop and tells you about the comp etc... great to see you blogging cath....

The second comp im in is the Scrap Idol over at Scrap Tastic... its based on the American Idol... so much fun i have made it to round 2 so far.. this challenge you have to take inspiration from a CD cover...loving the challenges... they also did a cyber crop week long to kick off the scrap idol... only managed to get 2 of the challenges done but also did some of the fun games are the pages i did for the CC...

ok seems i must of deleted the covered CD that i did ill find it and post it another time... the page above was for the sketch challenge very simple and fast page... here is my first challenge page for the scrap Idol:

this challenge you had to use a song i chose the song by aerosmith "dont want to miss a thing" you also had to use 3 diffrent patterned papers and a technique of some sort...

Well yesterday Kaitlyn got a huge surprise from her grandparents... they told her they were going out yesterday at lunch time to see a lady about a cat.. i thought they were only kidding thinking they wouldnt get another one... our last cat we had put down due to getting diabetes and he was really sick the poor thing....

So much to my surprise and Kaitlyn's my mum and dad came home with another gorgeous cat...She is a scottish-fold cross ragdoll cat... so gorgeous and fluffy and soft... she is a bit timid at the moment and jsut sort of hides everywhere that she can...she is only 18 weeks old and they said it could take about a week for her to get used to the house and the people... but she is gorgoeus... we have named her Bobbin...Kaitlyn got her a collar and name tag and 3 toys to play with...she is just so cute... here are some pics of her so far....(the photos arnt that good.. im a bad photo taker inside the house....i need help LOL anyone with tips on taking good photos inside i have a canon 350D LOL)... she looks so much like our other cat just a bit darker in colour... she has the most gorgeous eyes too... she loves kaitlyn...goes straight to her all the time....

this flower is my daughters... she has a little pot on her cabinet in her room and if she is a good girl or does something really nice she gets a flower (eg cleans her room without arguing..) each flower is $1.00 so when she gets 5 in a row she gets $5.00 but if she is naughty she loses a flower .. she is saving up for a build a bear which range from $30.00 and up... so far she has earned only $5.00 but she is learning LOL.. i love these flower they are one of my favourite so i wanted to take a pic of them and im even going to scrap about this and why she has them...

LOLGive your best storage or organisational idea: paper storage holders (like the mag holders) love those things keeps so much paper in them..

well im a bit slack latley with the blog challenges at just4keeps so thought instead of catching up..(which would take me forever LOL) i would just go with todays one... here it is
FRIENDSHIP: Who is your closest friend? How and when did you meet? What do you admire about them? What first drew you to them? What have you learned from them? What do you or did you do together that you remeber most clearly?
Going through high school i had quite a few close friends.. the one that stands out the most would be Anneke.. We both started at the same school (changed schools) on the same day.. we were instant friends. We did nearlly everything together.. she was my bad influence (i always tell her that now LOL) we skipped school together, and other bad things that we did LOL... but she always stuck by me through everything.. she was there when i fell pregnant and 2 weeks after i did so did she.. so we went through it all together.. our girls are 4 months apart so they have become great friends also...
Another good friend that is in my life now is my friend Kylie. Kylie and I met through an online scrapbook group called Wyld Aussie Swaps... we were in a cirlcle journal together and we realised we lived quite close to each other so she would drop them off at my house.. Kylie invited me to a scrapbook weekend away and we had a ball and clicked instantly.. we have become great friends ever since... she has 2 kids, Connor and Shanice, who kaitlyn gets onlong with and loves to go over there to play with them.. we organise scrapbook nights and Kylie now organises her own scrapbook weekends away and has her own company called scrapgirls.. she is doing really well with this and im very proud of her i really hope it becomes what she wants it to be.. Here is a pic of us at the last weekend away:
thanks Kylie (i know you read this LOL) for all the laughs and good times and for being such a great friend...
Ok now my life update.. my poor baby girl has been really sick the last 3 days.. she seems a bit better today and she really wanted to go to school as she had her first class assembly on.. they were so cute they had to sing a rain song and dance around with their umbrellas... she seems ok now and wanted to stay at school for the rest of the day... cross fingers i dont get a call from school... other then that not much else happening in my life.. have done a few scrap pages.. i joined in the shopandcrop cyber crop and i won 2nd prize for completing all challenges and i also got the prize for best page picked by their DT.. i was rather happy with that one... cant wait to see what i get ... well off to see if i can get some more done before work tonight... hope i havnt bored you with such a long post LOL..

What a relaxing weekend we have had.. Saturday we went to dancing first, Kaitlyn is loving cheerleading and is learing pyramids and tumbles etc...then my big brave girl wanted to get her ears pierced, she was a bit nervous at first.. but i got mine redone at the same time so she thought that she could do it too.. well she cried a little bit and the lady was really nice and did both ears at the same time... kaitlyn flinched a little bit but then she was fine.. she is so cute and they look great on her... she is so glad she got them done.. here is a pic of my big brave girl...

Todays blog challenge from J4K:
Every little girl dreams of being a princess or a ballerina. When you were growing up what did you want to be?? How far is this from what you are doing now??When i was growing up I wanted to join the police force. I always had a facination with mystery's etc.. but that didnt happen.. i went a bit far over the edge at school and didnt do to well.. i got my first job at McDonald's when i was 14 years old and was still there when i left school.. they offered me a managers position with full training and degrees.. i took this straight away and have been there ever since.. they are a great company to work for.. sometimes i wish my life had gone the other way but then again i wouldnt have my gorgeous DD probably and the life i have right now i suppose i cant really complain about...
Well not much else happening today.. off to work this afternoon.. yuckkk i hate the night shift.. cant get motivated at the moment to scrap.. i think i need some help LOL.. any good ideas anyone... i really need to do something, but i just sit here and stare at it and nothing comes... please someone send me some motivation to scrap...
hoe you all have a great week....

I love lists... i try to do a list of things to complete each month..going pretty good this month.. think ill add it to my blog from now on just so i can show you all that i do actually complete things LOL... so anyway back to lists the lovley Alison Shearer has started a sort of tag challenge on her blog to write lists... she is giving us a topic a week and we need to complete a page or blog post inregards to that topic... so here goes mine for the first week...
List what is wrong with women:* they are too picky* they are to emotional* seem to want to do everything themselves* stubborn* critical about themselves* bitchy * worry about every little thing* can talk to much (mmm thats definatley me LOL)* like to be in control
ok still thinking may add to this later to see if i can get some scrapping done before kaitlyn gets home... ciao

Finally my other half of my MM bag... so happy now that it has finally gotten here.. i just love it especially the colour its gorgeous... now i can take it to classes with me and just about anywhere LOL... its bigger then what i thought so i can hold so much stuff when i go on retreats and ill look very fashionable LOL.... well here is the part i got today...

Isnt it just gorgeous LOL...In the mail on friday i also got a present from Stacy Julian from Big Picture Scrapbooking.. i am taking her organisational class online that starts this thursday.. as a surprise she sent us all out a clipboard to alter, 2 black pens that she uses, some cute little post it notes and a purple plastic arm band that we are to use in class, we find out what they are for in the first week... here is my clipboard that i altered, was quite happy with it, very simple but like how it turned out i used the new Lil Davis papers and chipboard letters...

cant wait for this class to start...well im off now to start my first challenge for the LSS III at Just 4 Keeps.. looks like its going to be a great competition... be back later on if i get time to do my blog challenge from Erica... ciao for now

Been awhile since i last blogged so where do i start...
Over the long weekend we decided to go away with the family up to Nelson's Bay... the first 2 days were lovley, then it just went down hill from there LOL.. we all (the entire family) came down with that dreadful gastro virus.. not happy campers were we... we were supposed to come home on the Monday but as we were all too sick to drive we stayed another day.. by Tuesday morning i had gotten the virus also and all i wanted to do was to come home to my bed (sooky i know LOL).. so being as sick as i was i got in the car and drove the 4 hour trip home (stopping along the way quite a few times for you know what LOL).. we finally made it home and i was so happy.. i spent the rest of the day in bed... Kaitlyn was the only one that didnt get it, that was until wednesday when she finally came down with it also.. the poor thing she had only just gotten over this same bug 2 weeks now we are all on the mend thank goodness, Kaitlyn has gone back to school today and so far i have had no calls to pick her up so she must be ok...
Onto other things... im participating again in the LSS III at Just 4 Keeps its a challenge and im really loving what Kathy is getting us to do.. so far i have made it to week 2 (last round i got to week 4 so we will see how i go).. i can share with you now my page for week 1...
i was quite happy with this page.. its one of my favourites... cross fingers that i keep going...also on the scrapping front im doing and ABC'S of ME album again with Just 4 keeps.. (love that site).. here is my title page that i just completed today:

its not that crooked in real life LOL... also about to start a SHE album.. this again is at just 4 keeps with Jill its like the one that Heidi Swapp has done and taught so it looks great with what Jill has done so far... i bought a great journal book to do this in while i was away...
Oh also forgot to mention go check out this blog: Ngaire such an awsome idea to raise money for Breast cancer... and cool prizes to go with it... go and help today its definatley worth it....
anyway i think this is big enough for toady..

Just a quick post today to show you all my gorgeous DD.. She went to her first school Disco last night.. she was gorgeous LOL.. it was called a Whacky Disco and they had to dress really weird.. this is what my DD looked like:

My mum reckons she looked like Cindy Lauper the singer LOL.. i think she looks so cute.. she had a great time which was good... the parents had to sit outside and wait (which was freezing cold)... Definatley seems my little girl is growing up...:( Not much else to report today... have to work later on tonight (night shift yuckkk).. but i may actually get some scrapping done if i ever get off this computer...
