Today we have started the process of finishing off the garden edge beside the pool. It's one of those things that you keep looking at and getting frustrated about! We had a heap of dirt delivered this morning and now Jack is asleep I wil go out and see what magic I can weave!!!
Everyone is well, my latest scrapping layout which was inspired by a t-shirt I own was here for you to check out! But now it's gone because it's going to be published yey!!!!!!! (Stay tuned)
My latest digi layout is called 'SHE is:' and it was created using a template from CLD,Kellie Puddy.

Our easter pics

Our Easter Break

We had a lovely Easter, the swimming pool was finished and filled by lunchtime Good Friday, we spent nearly the whole weekend hanging out at home. we did the taditional easter egg hunt on Sunday after the EB had been! On Monday we took the kids to the Rainforest Habitat to feed the animals. I did something a little off the cuff and draped a snake around my neck while she got very up close and personal! I didn't mind her at all until she started licking my face! That was a little over the top and I said bye bye! Dave stood about 10 feet back with the kids and took photos, he is not a fan of snakes!
Scrapping report- have completed another digi layout this week and have just been ispired by a t-shirt to do a layout with paint and other goodies, for now, here is the latest digi of Jack and his cousin Hudson at the beach in Adelaide!

We are finally swimming!!! YIPPEE!!!

Hey, it's been a long time in the making, but the pool is finally finished!!! We turned the hose off today at 3.15pm, and she was full!!! (By that stage we had already been for a few swims.) Dave was so excited when he got home from work yesterday, he couldn't help himself, he grabbed the kids and off they went to play while it was filling! Then today, you couldn't get any of them out! We even had friends, (quite a few), visit, just to check it out and have a quick dip! What a great present from the easter bunny!! (HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE). HERE'S A FEW PICS TO SHARE!
And a pic of my latest layout!!

And another digi layout from the March comp at CLD!

Thought I'd just make a quick post as it's been a few days and I haven't been able to do much as I have a very painful neck injury!( I actually think it's from lack of excercise, loads of scrapping and time spent at the computer.)
Pool update-We are nearly there, should be swimming in our pool next week! had council approval yesterday, the guys were here draining the water out today and cleaning it up ready for pebbles tomorrow! It's so exciting, it's been a long-winded affair, but will be well worth the wait!
Kids are great, Taylah rec. another award at school last week! She is loving it!
Jack is still not a good sleeper, it's really taking it's toll!

I joined in the cybercrop on the weekend for LSBS.
(I actually won the prize for the digi layout challenge!! So chuffed, especially being new to this digi business!!!)

It's always ALOT OF FUN! Will leave some new layouts for you to check out!

I've been having fun with some challenges from a great site called colorline design!!

We are having few more clear days, but lots of wind and still a little rain at night! SWIMMING POOL UPDATE- Dave has got most of the glass panels up for the fence, just waiting on a few special pieces that needed to be made to size. it' s looking fantastic and each day we are getting closer to swimming in our own pool.
The kids are both doing s well at swimming lessons, lately Jack and I are gtting rained on at the pool but it's ok, a little on the cool side!
Both kids have been sick with fevers and sore throats, and there's quite a bit of it going around! I've been having more sleepless nights!!!
I've just booked my tickets to the APSCON (Australian Photography Convention) which will be held in Launceston this year, in September. It willbe the most independent thing I have done sicnce Taylah was born 5 years ago. I am so looking forward to it, and hoping to gain alot of inspiration, motivation and new enthuiasm for my photography.

I've learned something else on the computer this week, how to download and install fonts! may not be a big deal for some, but it's just another notch in my technical belt....

I shall leave some pics now of my latest scrapping creations:)

Some sunshine today in theTropics! what a very wet and eventful week. We've had the biggest downpour since 1904! Many floods to prove it! Cars were washed away, kids were rescued from swimming holes and schools and houses flooded! We are lucky where we live, but there were very wet areas all around us. When I picked Taylah up from school Tuesday, the kids were literally swimming on the lawn!

Scrapping wise, I shall leave an image of my newest digi creation, which was a challenge for another web site.

I am learning so much in the digital world at the moment, it's very exciting!

Well, anther very, rainy, wet season day in the Far North. I think it's rained non stop for the last 18 hours! Our swimming pool is almost full, (it's not finished yet, but in the last stages!)
My little man went off to sleep no trouble today, it's easy goig to sleep to the sound of heavy rain.

I haven't seen rain like this for a few years, just like the old days when I first arrived here! It's great, but i wish we could share some around to everyone else in the country who needs it!

In regards to scrapping, I'm in the finishing stages of a mini book at the mo. for my Mum! A belated birthday present. I'm happy with it so far.

Now I'm off to check out what's happening at the Little Scrapbook Shop,
