Okay, take 2 with the video

So much to share, so little time

Yes I know I keep promising to blog more, but what can I say, its hard work growing a bubba!!!

Firstly on the scrapping front, I have finally been scrapping again, but its all been for my brothers wedding album, so trying to keep it a bit of a secret in case he can be bothered checking here!!!

There is a cybercrop starting tonight though at ScrapTherapy, with the theme of dreams. it all kicks off with the blind scrap at 7. Hope to see you all there.

On the bubba side, no movements yet, but the belly is growing. We had the big 18 week scan on Tuesday which showed all is well and that we are having a little man!!! Needless to say we are both over the moon (well I admit, I didn't care either way, so would be thrilled regardless!!). Next step is painting the nursery (purple and red :) ) And the furniture (cream). Also just for those who love checking out ultrasound piccys, I have one step better, the video :):). Hmm will need to figure it out though. I'll add it when I can, otherwise I'll try for some stills!

Take care!!

Been slack.......

But for a very good reason

This is the latest addition to our little family :) I'm currently 15.4 days and going quite nicely. No sickness just tiredness which has been great.

I've also bitten the bullet and joined tupperware as a demonstrator and am enjoying playing with all the fabulous product.

Unfortunately between this and work there hasn't been much scrapping from me lately. I have managed to finish knitting all the squares for my blanket now and should have it sewn up very soon!!

Busy scrapping Day

Had an awesome day yesterday!!! Monica, Cath and Belinda came over for a fabulous day of scrapping and sewing. I even managed to get 5 layouts done :).

This first one was for the April Kraft it up challenge. The challenge was to use kraft plus a monochromatic layout, that wasn't brown.
This next one was the April sketch challenge at Scrap Therapy. I got to use the new October afternoon papers, which only landed on the weekend.This was for the Colour challenge, also at Scrap Therapy. It also uses the new October Afternoon papers, which are perfect for this challenge as it needed woodgrain paper.
THe Scrap Therapy journalling challenge was to journal about a change in your life, so I did my wedding to my gorgeous husband Rex.
Finally the technique challenge was to use Dimensional Magic. It is a fantastic product to add shine and dimension to thickers and patterned paper.

Finally The Scrap Therapy Cybercrop starts tonight!!! Blind scrap tonight with Helen, you have a choice of a layout or car, or if your keen both! Challenges also go up tonight :)

Hope to see you there :)

A wedding and some scrapping

What a great weekend. We headed over to Griffith to attend a wedding of our friend's Mark and Tegan. Mark, otherwise known as Horse almost married Rex at our wedding (see the wedding posts for more details) so it was only fitting that Rex was one of the groomsmen.

This was the bridal car! Absolutely stunning in real life.
Our very talented friend Cathy Wall provided the music for both the ceremony and reception. If you need a singer in Wagga or surrounds, she's your gal!!!
The bridesmaidd looked stunning in their dresses.
And not to mention the handsome groomsmen.
Mark and Tegan, they looked amazing.
Cathy again.
Rex, with his best mate Jon, who is also Cathy's husband and the reason Rex and I met.
Rex and I.
The boys, Rex, Jon and Mark.
This was in the morning at the Yenda pub, while the groomsmen were getting photos taken.


Finally this was for the Scrap Therapy cybercrop which finishes midnight tonight. This was for the sketch challnge, and also to create a green monochromatic layout. Even though the cybercrop has finished, there is still plenty of time to enter the monthly challenges!!
