Wow it is finally out !!!!!!!!!!!

Ok so it is finally yes I can now say very happily that I was one of the lucky ones that Scrapbooking Memories choose as one of their 10 Masters for 2007. I am still finding it hard to believe. When I got the phone call from Krys to tell me I was a Master I was out shopping and had actually forgotten all about it and I must have sounded like real dick when I was talking to her LOL, I think I said something on the lines of are serious this must be a joke LMAO.

It still seems surreal even seeing it in print today, but I tell you what the large boxes of prizes arrive it does feel real then LOL.

So here are my winning entries in the Masters Mag

And the thing I am most proud about is that one of my Layouts has my favorite photo of me and Lilly on it, all I was ever hoping when entering this was that this LO would get a Honorable Mention.

And Now here are photos of the prizes I have received so far


Ek Success

Rusty Pickle

Bumble Bee Crafts


Urban Lily

American Crafts


Print Blocks

Print Blocks and Aussie Scrap Source

And there is still more too come yet LOL, I cant believe all this stuff so much than I need and double up of somethings I already have so watch on here early next year and I will be giving away some RAK"S after I come home from holidays.

Santa Clause is coming to Town

I have been trying to get Charlize to warm up to Santa for the last week or so and she wasn't having anything to do with him she go up and take a present but no way was she sitting on his knee.

She was in a great mood down at the shops and santa was there with no line so I thought great lets just get this photos done, my mum went up with her and sat right over on the edge of a chair they had there and held Charlize's (which was not letting go off), we eventually got her to let go and say Lollies to get her photo take. Santa pulled her over tad more and gave her a cuddle and she let him but she wasn't impressed about it LOL. So here is the photo with Santa this year.

Another Weekend Gone

Wow I cant believe that another weekend has passed us by it will be xmas before we know it. Did get up to a great deal this weekend went to an engagement party on Saturday night I came home at about 11.30pm (and Jeff at day break but we wont talk about that lets just say he isn’t in the good books LOL), I can't understand that daughter of mine she was still going full pelt at 11.30pm and fell asleep on the way home but do you think she would have a sleep in today? No up at 6.30am just like any normal day. I have no idea where she gets all her energy.

I spent the late afternoon and all tonight working on this damn Layout just couldn’t decide what I wanted to do with the photos as what I had in mind just wasn't working for me but this is what I eventually came up with.

Light of my Life

Just popping in to quickly show off a Layout I did tonight, it is an old photo of Charlize when she was 2 weeks old I just love these photos.

Well I really should be heading off to bed as I am heading out to met the EB scrappy chicks tomorrow so I need my beauty sleep LMAO.

Special Bond

Just quickly popping on to post a LO of my beautiful angel and her grandparents that I did while Charlize was asleep today.

I am really loving scrapping Lilly's pages again as when I first started I never felt that I could do her justice, but I now feel that I come to a a point in my scrapping that makes me happy with what I am producing and that it now compliments my beautiful girl. ( I dunno if that makes sense to you but it does to me LOL)

My Daughter My Choice

Some of you may know what has been going on, on a particular site in US to anyone that has par taken in that forum and revolting comments about Lilly shame and you. You obviously have no heart and I hope that you never have to experience the pain my family has, and more so I would feel so sorry for your child having a mother that is not proud of him/her and want to share them with the world. If you have a problem with photos of my daughter don’t look at them I never asked you to and do not visit me bog and try and leave nasty comments either. If I saw your children I may think are ugly but would running around posting nasty things about them NO!!!!

To those of you who support my decision to scrap my children thankyou very much, my photos are all I have left Lilly and I treasure them very much!! The reason I post my LO's of Lilly is because I am proud she is my daughter and if I can help just one mother through her pain and grieving that is all that matters to me. It can be so hard when you scrap their photos and I know before I started scrapping I searched for ideas on how to honour her memory.

I will add that you have not upset me writing such nasty things, but only made me angry and more determined to scrap photos of my Beautiful girl and share them with the world. She is MY DAUGHTER and I will post her photo wherever I want to.

My Beautiful Angel Girl

As soon as I open my parcel from Rach yesterday and saw the MM noteworthy paper I knew that I had to do a LO of Lilly, so while Jeff and Charlize were out this morning this is what I did , I just love this new range of PP will be definitely getting some more.

Jeff and Charlize just got home so I had better go see what they have been up to.

Mummy's Angel

Just popping on to show a Lo I did today don't know how I managed to do it today as I woke up with a really sore back feels like someone bloody stabbed me ( I ask jeff if he did and he said no I thought about it but didn't LOL}, anyway here it is after being inspired to do more LO's of Lilly with the new gorgeous stuff Rach sent to me.

Way to go Rach

Just wanted to pop on and say Congratulations to my chickadee Rach, she has been given an awesome opportunity and I know you will rock at this !!!!!!! Wishing I could go with you but it is going to really bad timing unfortunately unless what I am hoping will happen doesn't. I always told you that you would take over the scrapping world one day and look here you are a international scrapper "the best in Australia" !!!!!!!!!!!!!

We went to a friends birthday party last night and I didn't get home until 2am and Charlize was awake running around until about 11.30pm, she was so hyped up LOL. Anyway i decided i wanted to have a little sleep in this morning so I put a movie on in her room on Jeff Laptop and what does the little monkey do climb up on her change table and grab off a bottle of moisturizer cream and empty out on to the carpet and then get it all over hands and smear it on nearly ever surface in her bedroom. Lets just say I wasn't a happy camper when I went into her and saw the mess.

Anyway I should be going to bed cause I am knackered I will leave you with a Lo that I did yesterday while the pork chop was asleep.

The Good and the evil of the Dummy

Ok so I loved the fact that Charlize loved her dummy but, we decided that she was now getting to old for having it (she only has it in bed) so when a friend had a baby yesterday I thought great we will tell Charlize that the new baby needs a dummy, all was going well she agreed to it and said i get a present so off I trot this am and brought her a new toy monkey that she loved in the shops.

Ok so I now have a screaming child in bed telling No i cant like the big girl monkey. She has been going for about 5 or so minutes now, oh hang on it has just gone quiet nope spoke to soon. LOL

The poor chook is now thinking that giving Alex's baby her dummy is not such a good thing.

I hope she settles down soon and goes to sleep without it.

Too much to do

Oh god I have just realized I have so much to do and very little time to do it in, I have to finish a guest album for a wedding on the weekend and a whole album to do for my SIL birthday by the end of the month !!!!!!

In between all this work has gotten busy so no time to scrap during the day and I have started workingout with a personal trainer to loose all these extra kg's I have been lumping around which makes me tired of a night and I haven't really felt like scrapping . We are also going away to Fraser Island for 3 nights next weekend too.

Anyway enough grumbling from me here is a LO I just finished off tonight that I couldn't be stuffed finishing last night just no motivation happening here.
