tagging n stuff

I have been tagged by the gorgeous and talented photographer/scrappy chick Nic Finlayson.

here are the rules:

  1. Go to where you store you pictures on your computer.
  2. Go to the SIXTH folder and pick the SIXTH picture.
  3. Post that picture on your blog along with a SHORT story about it.
  4. You know the rest. Tag SIX people and leave a comment on their blog or email them letting them know you chose them.

so I chose


The above picture is of my gorgeous son, he is about 9 \months old in this picture, wearing a top from my American cousin Kathy, he is on the toyroom floor and enjoying his fake hamburger, I remember getting down to his level and just taking heaps of photos of him, he was and still is soooo cute, he had hardly any hair at all. This was March of 2006 and we were going on holidays to phillip island, we do this every year with Michael's dad to Island Breeze Resort, I love it there, the kids love the pool and walks along the beach. This year will be Nate's 4th year of family week away with his Poppa Jon and Di... This photo makes me smile.

hello there to my hoard o fans - hehe
Life has continued to remain busy, I had fun this weekend celebrating my gorgeous girls 8th birthday, yes it has been a whole eight years since I started my journey as a mummy and Mike and I became a "family". It has been wonderful, gone fast and there have been tears (lots of them mine) and so many happy times, thank goodness I have my scrapbooking to remind me of all the adventures we have had in 8 years. My girl is healthy and happy and that's all that matters, she is loving (sometimes) to her little bro and has such a wide range of different friends.

I have been creating, not as much as I would like - LOL but that's life.

Here are some gorgeous pics from boxing day and also my latest layout...

my last post no pix

I dont know why - maybe it was the universe, but my last post I could NOT post any photos, will try again.

Life has been quiet - thank goodness, although not last night because my house was a rock band, yep Hubby cannot get off Guitar Hero world tour, he loves it... if it had more bon jovi songs I'd love it too fer sure.

I have scrapbooked a page and got ready for another two, just need embells and sticking down. easy peasy.

Went to heidi swapp class the other day with my sister and best friend and it was absolutely awesome, meet up with all my talented scrappy friends and it was an absolute blast, full on - Heidi is such a gorgeous woman, she is inspirational. Oh and she got me onto distress inks from Tim Holtz - wow am I obsessed!

Have yet to complete my soulology layouts - slacker - I need to seriously knuckle down and get piccies and words onto paper. I have started taking photos of the everyday for the becky higgins 365 challenge go here for details you cannot get the kit at the moment, it's sold out, ah well that will save me some $$$$, but I love the concept of taking a photo every day... it is a good reminder to enjoy the little things we may forget.

Anyhoo off for my ice break fix - hugs to all.
