A new challenge at Frosted Designs....

A word challenge: "family"  How gorgeous is this Webster's page!! Lullaby Lane. I couldn't wait  to use it! and these letters from a kit I got ages ago.  I am so on a scrapbook 'diet' at the moment and really happy to use what I already have!
I haven't done a LO for a while now and my MOJO had gone missing....I used the sketch from
Frosted Designs this week and voila!
if you look closely, I have followed it!

Last week was so hectic I forgot to post the fabulous challenge from Frosted Designs with the delicious digi stamps given to us by The Cutting cafe

I filled the jar with marshmallows.  The recipient thought it was hilarious! Last year I filled a jar with malteasers and called it Reindeer Poo!

Ask me what I want for Christmas.......

and I will tell you SPARE TIME! This time of year is really so very busy for me! I have all good intentions of pre-planning and organizing things along a time line! I plan to have all my work things done re: certificates, lollies, bookings & deposits.  I plan to have all (well most) of my Christmas shopping done and wrapped (er it is 16th December and I haven't done one thing!) I plan to bake and make lots of yummy things with a Christmas theme. I plan to have my house spotless and my tree brimming with the gorgeous decorations that my kids have made over the years, that I cannot bear to part with (even though they look deformed). I plan to make my Christmas cards (each with a special unique design) and maybe even a matching envelope! and send a loving note inside detailing what we have been up to this year. BUT...... again, a week to go and I am even MORE behind than other years!  Today I went to a funeral of a young girl of 25 and I watched her broken hearted parents leave the church utterly destroyed and I thought so what if I haven't got my tree up and Christmas cards done or my house is messy and I haven't done my baking or wrapped anything.  I came home and hugged my children (well two of them, the other two were working) and played basketball outside and just gave them good old fashioned time and thanked God that I have them and that I will be celebrating Christmas (in my messy house) with them and my family. xx

If you are here for the FROSTED DESIGNS blog hop {scroll down}

I have a lot of incidentals (that sounds nice doesn't it!) that I have to buy for! And I LOVE getting a bottle of wine or Champagne myself! so that is what I have done this year! bought alcohol! to jazz it up a little I have copied an idea from my craft friend Sue and put my own little spin on it of course!!!! easy peasy! and I have about 8 people done & dusted!!!!

Very hectic around here at the moment will all the end of year swimming/testing stuff! Patrick has OD'ed on the lolly bags! They are on holidays now and Mark has put them to work in the garden..... First they spent an hour looking for gardening gloves.... and then they had to use my rubber gloves and I only had one pair so they then spent an hour arguing who was going to wear them! If I had been there (instead of their father!) I would have told them to have one each!
Well I don't think they are going to be landscape gardeners! They did actually do a good job and didn't complain too much! I had to get the camera as proof (and that they were wearing PINK gloves!) lol
They were so exhausted after their hour of gardening that they played PS3 while they recovered!
And Christie is busy supporting her EBAY addiction, working three jobs during her Uni break.  She got a job the other day as a GRID girl at Sandown Races!

The other picture I has is very blurry and I will try and get another one! But in true Grid girl fashion, the dress was VERY short and looked great on ( oh to be 20!)

Finally got (or should I say the penny has dropped) good with my camera.  I just took a couple of my beautiful roses ( it has been raining that much her at the moment) they must really like it!! LOL I am not a green thumb!



Okey dokey! better get back to it!!!
