house to do as it was soooooo important! I needed to do a goodbye and good luck card for a young athlete travelling to Italy to compete. (thanks Sue!)
This weeks Wicked Princess Challenge is gluttony!
At first I read the criteria as sewing, distressing, inking, stamping etc. pick 2 of the following and have six emblies and, doodling and have the colour orange somewhere and I made this......
filled all the criteria. The journaling reads..."since Lee started working full time, we never get to catch up anymore. Our families get together every Sunday for dinner and we share a bottle and talk about our week. Sometimes, if it has been a busy one.......we crack open another one..or two"
not much to show as I have been running around with other things (non scrap related) and I really NEED to clean and reorganise my scrap area.... looks like a tip!!
Not long till the Arty Farty Angel Party the place we are going looks brilliant!!! The DT has come up with some beautiful classes for us. I can't wait!! I have to get all my photos and pp ready.....I can feel a MOJO BLOCK coming on :( breathe Ange breathe..... hee hee!
POP in and say HI if you do.
2 posts in 1 day......aren't you lucky!!! lol
The next day I went into Olympic Park ( I took the trusty GPS...GOD I LOVE that thing!) and watched Aden and my niece Ellie and nephew Ben compete in the SACCSS athletics carnival. I was so impressed with Aden, he is very good at long distance and he ran in a 400, 800 and 1500 and came 4th and 5th, 5th respectively. Not really his events, the short ones but gosh he did well. Ellie won everything and was awarded Senior Champion and Benny came 2nd in his race.Sorry to bore you with continual sporting news of the kiddies.... but Nana DOES like an update.
ANYWAY.... GREED was Wicked Princesses theme of the week. The criteria was to have the colour scheme black yellow and white. Have journaling in list form and have a stamping technique. He is my entry.....
and the card had to have best wishes theme. I found this stampin' up stamp today while I was sorting a few stamps out and I was laughing....because I would've normally found the stamp NEXT week.....!!!!Going to Scraphaven tomorrow to attend a class by Yvonne Campbell. Yvonne won a HEAP of awards at the Stampin' Up convention last month. So looking forward to seeing what she has planned.
anyway see ya :)
Should be a lot of fun with weekly, fortnightly and monthly challenges. Really looking forward to getting started. Go have a look and join in! Hope to see you see you there!
Another bit of exciting news.....I got this in the mail the other day! A NZ magazine published my LO of Christie dancing. So exciting!
Yesterday, I watched Aden compete in the CAS (Catholic All Schools) cross country at Bundoora. The poor kid has caught my cold and his nose was running like a tap and he looked miserable. I had to resist the urge to give him a tissue as he ran past me! Imagine the telling off I would get! I was so proud of him, he ran 6 ks in 22.55 and came 5th. Not sure if he goes on or not
GOT SOME really exciting news this morning........stay tuned!
see ya ;)
For my presents, which I don't really want them to buy presents. I really just love the NO COOKING for the day. anyway Christie went to Scraphaven
and bought a PIZZA BOX full of goodies. Heaps of PP and chipboard and ribbon, alphas, felt. It was just beautiful! AND I got a beautiful new dressing gown, the really super soft ones. I think they were sick of seeing me in the old one I have had for years..... AND a new spare battery for the baby! so all in all I did extremely well! The kids organised everything by themselves with no help from Mark....not that he did anything for his own mother either. I got the card & the flowers and arranged them!
It is really hard to get a photo of someone NOT pulling a face and all looking at the camera at the same time! ANY way happy with all these. I won't put them all up but this is the theme of them!
