something to get the MOJO happenin'


I got this gorgeous little Oliver card kit from Scraphaven made by Basic Grey I just love it! 8 cards to QUICKLY make to 1. get the mojo flowing and 2. top up the depleted stash! They took no time at all and they are actually cute! AND I have heaps of little elements left over!






So very proud of Lachlan! He won Age Champion at the swim sports on Thursday! This was the fourth time in a row! Not too bad considering he hasn't been swimming (training) in over two years!


Aden starts Uni tomorrow and he is actually so excited! I have washed and ironed his uniform! Bleh and double bleh at ALL the shirts! anyway I will post a picture of the handsome boy tomorrow!

New Challenge @ Frosted Designs!

well on a bit of a roll! Nothing a deadline won't fix!  I have been having a few problems uploading my photos to the computer as the cord has decided it doesn't like me anymore!!!
And my car blew up the other day! Some silly person where I have it serviced put petrol in instead of diesel! Someone who was behind Mark filmed it on his phone (I love iphones!!!) The company are denying it of course saying my husband must have done it! NOW if you know my husband.....that simply WOULD NOT happen LOL!

any way Frosted Designs have a few hours left for you to apply for the DT! so if you are interested...go ahead!!!

The challenge this week is METAL and I have used a metal belt buckle on my ribbon.  This photo is of my three boys about 11 years ago.  The are all great buddies (well most of the time) and I really love that about them.  Lachlan is the peacemaker and calms things down if they get too rough.  I hope they remain friends throughout their lives!
I have used MME So Sophia range and that gorgeous ribbon {heart} is Stampin Up!
I have followed this weeks sketch at Frosted Designs which is PERFECT if you need a MOJO push!
