My little fella is off to Canberra for a week with his school. It will be a little quieter around here and not because he makes a lot of noise......just with one less it is different. I hope he has a fantastic time and comes home safely!

We went to Ballarat this weekend with some gorgeous friends in a beautiful house for a basketball tournament. The boys all did so well! Winning some of their games and both Aden & Lachlan's team getting to the grand finals both winning in absolute thrillers and both my boys were awarded the MVP trophies at the end. Patrick was picked to play in an Interleague football side at Werribee. He had a great time, even though his side were smashed in both games.
I had fun playing with my camera on sports mode for these indoor shots. Still Not as good as I'd hoped but I go to enough basketball games that I am sure that I will get the elusive shot one day!


Really proud of these boys! They try so hard, they are such team players and they live and breathe ANY type of sport. As a mother, my heart just bursts seeing them enjoy themselves, and watching their drive and determination and giving their all in everything they do.

see ya :)

My Last LO for Wicked Princesses

Bit sad this is over, I have thoroughly enjoyed this competition. When it first started, I thought how the hell are they going to incorporate the seven sins into challenges? and then I thought "how the HELL and I going to DO a LO on them!" I am pretty happy with most of them. This last one was LUST with the criteria (which I read properly this time!) blue & white, 3 shades of blue, chipboard elements. We are thinking about downsizing our 4WD as Christie is driving and NEVER comes with us anymore, Aden will have his licence soon. So it makes sense to get a little 5 seater. I would like an Audi (I would really like any SMALL car truth be told) but I wanted my LO to have a prestigious car coz a Ford Focus didn't quite have the same ring to it lol!
This is the bonus card with the LOVE theme with 2 chip embs.
Had a bit of time when I finished, so I made these two as well. I just love the Melissa Frances rub ons! they are perfect for cards.
And take two with the Italy card from a previous post! I was really unhappy with my measuring on the other card... I had to do it again (and I am so NOT a perfectionist!) anyway I am happy with the second one. Thanks Sue!
see ya :)
