Middle of the year!!! OH Dear!!!

Hi there.. I cannot believe we are at the middle of the year already.. on the count down for the end of the year?? No way... not me.. I must say I nearly fell over at work the other day when I saw Christmas fabric in despatch !!! Holy smoke!  Too soon for me.. Im just getting over Easter.
I am pleased to share that I am now currently up to date with my Project Life.. After 18 months of doing Project Life.. I have always been about 4-5 weeks behind.. Im not quite sure how I caught up.. I keep going back through my pages to see what weeks I have missed.. but no.. I am simply up to date.


This is great for me and I am not used to it but I am making the most of my spare time.  I have picked up my crochet blanket I am trying to get finished,  I have made a few cards, I have sanded down an old table and painted it over and white washed it, and had a bit more time to myself.  Crazy I know... but the way I PL is very time consuming.  


I am looking forward to my Project Life Retreat that is coming up on the 18 October being held at Daisy Chain Scrapbooks here on the Sunshine Coast.  That is just so exciting for me to see all the lovely girls again. We have a ball and inspire each other all weekend.  We can also talk rubbish all weekend and we all get each other lol
I am excited about next week.  I have made some changes in our home in the past 2 months. Mainly soft furnishings.  We have got a new dining room suite, mirror to make a statement, rug and new lounge suite that arrives next week.  It has been a 10 week wait and I dont think we will get it a day early either.. but next week is the day.  This will finish off the changes we have made.  I can't wait. I will post a photo when I have it in and has made its place inside.
My hubby and I got to have 2 days away on our own.. One night in Brisbane. Not at all long but we were so excited to have some us time out.  DS went to a friends place in Brisbane to a beautiful family where he feels very much at home.  They are very cool and Im so pleased DS feels good there.







My husband is so passionate about these diggers




My favorite city
Brisbane Qld Australia





OMG how embarrassment !!


Getting there...



Fun fun on the beach...


My little logo I created for my Facebook page. Go and check us out.. Just request to become a member and we will add you asap x




weeeeeee..........


 I love these photos of my boys down our street!


Twudy girl and I



I seriously have to walk around with my eyes closed.  There are so many yummies out there at the moment.. So many temptations.. but I have to say no!!.. It is a want and not a need!!
Sadly I left the chair there but was apparently sold an hour after I left it there.. Gone to a good home I am sure.



A big thank you to Sue Brown who designed this wee canvas Camera embellishment.. they are super cute 




LOVING my new size 12 jeans I treated myself on our weekend in Brisbane.. Although my hubby reasons I should have got a discount.. due to the holes in the knees lol
He just doesnt get it 


 A snap shot of my room before I got my wood grain wall paper hung last week.


Now after with my new wall paper feature wall


This was us yesterday out for a bush walk. Man I just love my family.. They are so beautiful to me.  I am so so blessed to have such a great life..Life does not have to be perfect to be great!!!!!!



I get to see my long lost friend from Mission Beach in the morning.. We havent seen each other for about 5 years.. so it will be fun to catch up.  So nice to have friends like this!!  She had her own scrapbooking shop up in Tully FNQ but got hit severely by the cyclone 2 years ago and has paid its toll on her.  They have moved south and cannot wait to give her bear hugs tomorrow.
Well I hope you are all still getting inspired somewhere and inspiring others each day as it goes by.  I love art and I love to share and be inspired by you all too.
Take care and keep happy and positive

Wow.. what a week

It's about time I got my bum into gear and blogged.. I love blogging but time goes way too fast.. I think I write this each time I blog lol.
I have been on a short holiday with my son and hubby in our caravan up in North Qld.. I was totally sick for the whole 3 days I was there with Bronchitis and a fever.  Nasty nasty stuff but I couldn't do anything about it except sleep.. Long was to drive after a day at work to end up in bed for 3 days.. Took me 6 hours to get there.
This week.. actually today I created my own Facebook Project Life page... It is called SNAP IT UP Project Life ...... and if you are not already a member ... please pop over and request to become.. I would be honoured to have you join in the fun, creative goodness and all the crafty and photographic gossip.
I have a few Project Life cards that I am going to share tonight with you. As its been about 4 weeks since I last blogged.. this also means I have 4 weeks of pages.. lol.... anyway.. here is a few below.



I have edited this photo above of my DH and I in pic monkey.. I love the filters they offer in here. I love to play til I get it looking a little different 



I have had these Prima Canvas words for about 12 months.. I love them.  The red letter stickers are from a Christmas letter sheet from Echo Park.  



Cute FAMILY wood veneer word from Flutterbys.



Kaiser Craft wood veneer bee.  Journaling done in Picmonkey also.



Kaiser Craft Now Boarding Collectables.... above...  These are great little embellishments 



Little potty people which I love.... and make today amazing stamped on natural ribbon then sewn down.



Teresa Collins Remember this quote which I punched out.   How cool are those funky caravans ?



I was pretty chuffed that all my kits were sold out at the Brisbane Paper and Craft show just last month.   I put them together using Simple Stories 24/7 Collection which I adore.




Redecorating at home atm.. I am loving playing with colours, fabric and wall paper..



How sweet do these little transparent overlays look.. they just add so much to a little photo.









Thanks for popping in... I have a few more cars to share.. but that will do for tonight.. Happy scrapping everyone.. keep snapping those snapshots and document them!!! I love it.
Take care
