I am lucky enough to bed able to sleep in most Saturday mornings now so it's great to be able to crawl out of bed about 9am and have an easy breaky and days like today are even more exciting. I love the fact that I can do blogging and create all my blog lines like I have today and not feel guilty doing this. Hey it's raining outside. I couldn't possibly hang out washing or wash floors. There is WAY too much moisture in the air for that kind of stuff... so while my husband is happy recreating his garden and Corey is happy playing in the rain with the other kids in the street... Mummy is extremely happy to sit and do her thing. So much to look at !!
Ok, will close for now. When it stops raining I will get my stash out of the car and upload my creations from last night for you to take a peek at.
Bye for now.... chill out and relax!!
It's the weekend

Loove this Prima paper and Prima flower. I have used a silver pen on the flower and gone around the edge of it to give it a more silver shine than the gold it had.
Well my bed is calling me so I had better go and get some well earned beauty sleep.
Take care and thanks for stopping by.
Just a few fun pics of our weekend at Daisy Chain Scrapbooks February Retreat.
Our awesome guys who sing for us every retreat!! They surely put some extra fun atmosphere into the place at dinner time.
Well over the weekend I along with about 30 other fantastic ladies attended the Daisy Chain Scrapbooks Retreat. It started on Friday evening at 5pm and we all packed up with sad faces about 3pm on Sunday. In this time I calculated that I scrapped an entire 30 hours!! Give or take a couple of hours of yummy chomping down good food, drinks and lots of chatting and belly laughing. These retreats are so much fun.... I must admit I struggled the whole weekend keeping my eyes WIDE open as I was soo tired, but that did not stop me and I did not pull the pin and have an early night. I just couldn't get enough of the fun we had. I was pretty creative and was happy with what I had achieved. I completed 5 LO's, one LO which the great fabulous Toni Crane taught, and 4 sweet cards which I was happy to scrap lift. I don't do many cards at all, always soo keen to get a LO done, but was in need for two baby cards due to post so what better time to do them. Toni and I did these together. We had lots of fun. Over the weekend I got a whole 12 hours sleep so I was a complete right off this morning so I got the family on their way to work and school and crept back into my bed for 2 more hours and dreamed like there was no tomorrow. Well needed. So after a great weekend I'm back on track and happy to be posting to my blog again. Thanks for popping by again. Love it that you come to visit me Have a fantastic week and lets hope it gets a wee bit cooler soon!! Moonie x
Here are two of the recent layouts I have done with the gorgeous new release A2Z Scraplets.
In the first layout I have used the shield which is up in the top right hand corner. I have inked the top of it with chocolate ink, and then covered the rest of the shield with script printed paper.
I found this Scraplet fantastic for a masculine layout. Very strong on a male page and perfect for this photo of mine I have used. This is my Brother In Law, my step Dad and my wonderful husband.
In the second layout I have used the cute wee tree which I have just inked around the edges. Sometimes the trees look just perfect left natural. The PP is Crate paper and I love it!!! Such happy paper it makes my heart sing..
Thanks for looking...

Here is my Valentines Day card I made my husband. He was delighted and already has it in his working spacing in our garage next to my photo.
Love all of these papers I have used. First layer is Teresa Collins, then the Pink Paislee Cupid Collection and on top the gorgeous tag I have cut out from the same Pink Paislee Cupid Collection Range. Such beautiful fun papers to work with.
Thanks for looking. I hope you had a good day..

We never go all out on Valentines Day... but we always make each other aware and tell each other that we are special to one another and are so happy with the way our lives are together as a family.
We spent the day by going to the markets early this morning, followed by a stop off for a beautiful Cappuccino my favorite. As we walked into the cafe which over looks a lovely canal and sand, Corey said "When you sit down that is when you can kiss!". Soo sweet having our wee shadow with us everywhere we go.
Come home and did some well needed gardening together.. Ken said it is a nice way to bond!! Now I have blisters on my right hand!
I got a lovely big electric wok today and Ken got his favorite mix of chocolates from Darrell Lea.
All is good in our world
Off to my sisters for a lovely family dinner and some wine.
Hope you all had a great day and just chilled out.
Hopefully I can fit in some scrapping tonight when I get home
Bye for now
Thanks for stopping by
