Loving Collages

While in Mackay on holidays I got to spend a couple of days with one of my best friends and her two little ones.  This is Ebony and she is the most cutest little wee thing who really took a shine to Corey.  She followed him everywhere and he started to share his ice block with her.  She loved it more than he expected her to so we got her her very own one.  She was a joy to watch as the ice block was too heavy for her and it kept falling to the left and the right as she tried to put it in her mouth LOL... was toooo cute.

I have actually put this together for this months "Scrap the Girls" Challenge which is pretty easy...
The criteria is using an OUTSIDE PHOTO that has been taken outside.  Pretty easy hey?  So I was thinking... this is a perfect couple of photos.  So here is my take on the June Challenge.

I have used:
Simple Stories - Fabulous Paper
Echo Park - This n That Element Stickers
Hand made Calico Flower by Leanne Bishop
Grace Taylor Die cut flower
Crate Paper - Emmas Shoppe "girl" sticker

That's all for this Wednesday night... Im busting to watch my weekly favourite...OFFSPRING... Such a classic nutty show.

Our Heroes

Ever since I can remember Corey has loved going to the Anzac Day March.  He is a very passionate boy when it comes to Anzac Day and what our diggers did for our country.  Pop... which is Corey's Pop, my DH Father served in the war and was on the front line.  Pop has all his medals but unfortunatly when Pop passed away 2 years ago, they all went to his other Grandson who served 17 years in the Navy.  We are hoping to one day get to keep one for Corey to keep as a very precious gift Corey would love to have.
I get very emotional on Anzac Day myself and cannot hold back the tears watching these folk doing the March and what they went through. Along with everyone there were many tears.  I got a few great shots of the march and put them together in a double layout for Corey's album.

Big list of product in this one so I won't put it all down.  Love the paper I have used. Perfect for the occasion I thought.
Thanks for stopping in and leaving me some love.

Paper Craft Expo - Brisbane

Well I have just come home from Brisbane after spending 2 nights with some great girls who I love spending time with.  It is the one long weekend I really look forward to.  We normally stay down there for 3 or 4 nights but this time I only got 2 days down there due to work commitments.  But I got there and we all had a blast.  Got to see lots of my online friends and the inspiration down there was just outstanding.  
A bit draw card this year was the Mr TIM HOLTZ himself was there and had his own stall doing his awesome creations.  I could sit there for hours and hours and watch and listen to that legend of a man.
There were lots of stalls and lots of bargains to have.. mind you you did had to do a bit of a shop around as the prices varied.  I didn't spend too much and I honestly didn't stay that long this year...I did get a Day Lamp.. the stand up one for the lounge which I have been wanting for a couple of years now.  Unbelievable price!!!!  I was happy to see a few people that I did bump into and then go shopping in the Queen Street Mall with Monika.  We had lots of fun and got so many bargains. 
Then we finished our day by calling into Westfield Chermside for some lunch and more shopping.. Mind you I love window shopping too.  I get very inspired and get lots of ideas for things.
I hope you all had a great weekend and if you went to the show I hope you had a good time too.
Off to see my baby girl tomorrow after work.  She is in Brisbane Airport for 4 hours on her way home from Orange... so I am flying down there after work tomorrow to spend that quality time with her.
Love to you all

Love Life

No matter who we are or where we are we will all as humans have our own issues and good and bad journeys through our lives.  Without this this would not be life !!!
I am at a really happy stage of my life and have been for a few years now.  I can't complain.  I have an awesome hubby, cool kids who I love dearly and are my absolute loves in my life... I have a wonderful home, job, family, Mum who makes me laugh now when we are on Skype and lastly.... I love where we live.  I feel so blessed to wake up most mornings and hit Mooloolaba beach and go for my coffee hit in my favourite cafe before work or the gym.  I love our sunshine and cooler weather at the moment.  When I watch telly and see the gangs over seas and the bad news around the world with all the killings and nastiness I just think we are soooo rich in freedom.
I have also been on a happy healthy weight loss journey over the past 3 months and have lost 10kg.  Soo at my goal weight I was at 8 years ago.  And I feel awesome.  I get soo many compliments all the time on my loss it makes me dance inside.  I was in the right frame of mind one morning when I jumped out of bed and said.. Today is the day.. I am making the changes I want.  So now I am just maintaining my weight and will smash another 3-5 in a few weeks.  Just having a break and maintaining it for now.  Have a few treats now and then which is nice.  
Im off to see all my favourite girls this weekend in Brisbane at the Paper Craft Expo at Southbank and Im pretty excited.  Me and two other girls have got a hotel room booked to play up and jump on the beds without the kids looking :-)
So I hope you are loving life and just look at what you have and how lucky you are to have the life you have.  Sometimes we get bogged down and can't seem to get our heads out of it... but really... we have it great.
Love to all my friends and followers 

  Here I am above boom boom.... 10kg too many

Now where I should be
