More Exciting News from Me!

Its all happening in my scrap world at the moment...I have been accepted on the new Design Team for the challenge blog White With 1! I am really excited about this and can't believe I made it through when there were so many applications submitted. Can't wait to get started and work with this amazing group of girls. Here are the layouts I submitted with my application, which also included the White with White layout I showed you a few posts ago.

Our mini vacation turned to absolute crap when we had nothing but rain, rain, rain the whole time we were in Port Macquarie! They had floods, torrential rain, I couldn't believe it. We were cooped up in a little unit and couldn't get away from eachother, which is never good. The Tuesday was horrible because we were all cranky, but we made the most of it on Wednesday and went clothes shopping and scrap shopping, then out for dinner and Cold Rock which was fun. We also managed one swim all together on the Wednesday arvo, it wasn't sunny but it wasn't pouring rain either. We woke up Thursday to an absolutely gorgeous day, only to have to pack the car and come home. Daniel took Cooper & Georgie for a swim for about an hour before we left, and poor Coop was so sad, he didn't want to get out of the pool and begged to stay longer. I felt so sorry for him, we'd been talking up our 'holiday' and how much fun we'd have. Oh well, what can you do, we'll plan another holiday soon. It will be hard for the next 18 months or so as Daniel is about to start his Undermanagers course, but we'll work something out.

The only pics I managed from our trip were the morning we left in the pool...

BUT, what else could I do when we were soooo bored and the rain wouldn't stop? Scrap, of course! Here's what I ended up with, plus there is another one I can't show just yet.

This one is a Pagemaps sketch that is this month's sketch challenge at Anna's Craft Cupboard. I love this page (and I know you will too, Loz!) and I mean every word, I wish Loz & I lived closer and our babies could play together more often, they would definitely be the best of friends.

The next one is the February Sketch over at Mystical Scrapbooks, the sketch being designed by Cookie.

I used a February Pagemaps sketch to FINALLY scrap these snow photos of Cooper that I've been putting off for 2 1/2 years. I'm loving the end result, and can't believe I actually used some of my old TLC kit products (god forbid!).

A just because LO of Cooper when he graduated from the baby class at swimming to the 'big boy class', including his certificate.

This was the February sketch at Scrap of Difference. Finally some more xmas photos scrapped. Why does it always seem such an EFFORT to scrap christmas photos, I don't get it, but it always seems hard!

And lastly, this one was this month's Aussie Pub Calls Roadmap. I had so much fun TAKING and SCRAPPING these photos of me and Daniel, just mucking around! He was making the most stupid faces you've ever seen, we were pissing ourselves laughing and Cooper was trying to get involved (as kids do!). Finally I got a decent smile out of my husband, even if half our faces are chopped off....LOL!

Well thats it for the layouts for now, I did manage three more at the crop at Scrapbooking Delights last night, but today is so rainy and dismal that I'm not even going to attempt to photograph them. I did get back out to Scrapbooking Delights this morning for their big sale, thanks Sandra for the bargains and can't wait to see what you fill the shop up with now!

Emma is here, I've had a good day of getting organised and some of the mountain load of washing in my laundry done. We have the girls coming for a scrap day tomorrow, so I'm really looking forward to that.

I can feel a headache coming on, I best go get a coffee and stop it before it starts!

Bye for now,
