For one of the CC challenges at Craft Attic, we had to create a 'FLAT' LO. No lumpy bumpy- not even chipboard!!! Initially I thought- OMG- that's impossible! But it was actually very easy .... and fun. So here is my 'FLAT' LO- only using card stock, pp, letter stickers and rub ons!

Three new pair of snugly, soft, colourful PJ's!!! I love them!!! I really wanted to get the purple ones with the cute green frogs on them but they didn't have my size. I had to settle for hot pink Betty Boop, bright blue monkeys and hot pink mad cows- way to cute!!!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful day!

I wanted to scrap this photo of Adam and Emma at the Scrapboxx retreat last weekend however every time I looked at pp, the blue in Adam's shirt threw me. So this weekend I was determined to scrap it. I decided to go right away from blue and choose another colour- so taaa daaa- here it is!!! The photo was taken at Sea World while we were on the Sky High Skyway.
And for some GREAT news. As you know I have been entering the Scrapapple 8 week challenge. I managed to get an entry in for 7 of the 8 weeks- woops, I missed the weekend that I went on the Scrapboxx retreat!!!
Well anyway I entered the LO "They Just Click" as my entry for week 8- and I WON!!! wooo hoooo!! How cool is that? As I missed a week, I can't win the overall prize (which they will announce on Friday) but I was thrilled to beat 44 other LOs to win this week- yay, doing the happy dance!!! I will let you know my prize when I receive it!!!
Ok- off to watch 'Desperate Housewives' Have a great night!

Here are some LOs that I completed at the retreat. This one "They Just Click" is Emma and her friend Morgan at Emma's Hawaiian party last week. Love the bright colours contrasting with the white brackground on this one! How cute are these girls????
A favourite photo of Sarah and I love these yummy flowers. They are 'fuzzy' to feel- very yummy!!!
This photo of Sarah was taken at Sea World during our holiday- I feel this LO needs something else but I'm not sure what!!! I love Kim's new stamps- very noice!!! Thanks for sharing Kim!!

My top ten.
You Right Now- You know all the little bits of 12x12 paper you trim off, well I used all the little bits to make the background stripes- very easy and I love the end result!
The Bear Fact- How cute is Sarah's teddy- This LO was published in FK and also made it onto the front cover of their 50th anniversary edition- it is very small but it is there!!!
Always- This LO is based on a sketch but I was thrilled with the end result.
Friends- Another LO based on a sketch. I love Emma and Taylah- how gorgeous are these little munchkins???? I love this LO because it is so bright and funky!
I hope You Dance- an older LO but using a favourite photo of Sarah.

This time, seven years ago, I had a big belly!!! I can't believe how fast time goes! Seven years- wow!
I am organized for tomorrow....- nearly!!! All the presents are wrapped (except one- which was a bonus one for Emma that DH bought home tonight!) I have tomorrow's cake nearly made. I ALWAYS have a cake for my girls' actual birthday. If their party is not on their actual birthday then I make two cakes- one for their birthday and one for their party! As Em's birthday is tomorrow and her party is on Sunday, this year she will get two cakes! They are both ice cream cakes- yum, my girls' favourite and always home made. I just have to tip the ice cream out of its mould, add cream and decorate- will do that tonight once the cherubs are in bed!
Tomorrow morning, we will do the present thing first. Emma's main present is a trampoline. (We already have a trampoline but the mat is starting to come apart) The tramp is still in its box so Adam can put it together in the morning while I clean down the patio and make sure the garden looks OK. Just after lunch the girls have acrobatics so I will go and sit there for a few hours and chat to Kim. On the way home I will drop in the shops and do my final bit of party food shopping. Then tomorrow night we are taking Emma out to dinner. We are going to go to the Nag's Head Tavern- a yummo little tavern only 5 minutes drive from our house. We will come home for sweets- yep, the birthday cake that I'm going to finish tonight- LOL!!!
On Sunday I am going to power clean the house! Then at 2.30 we have Emma's little friends coming over for her Hawaiian party! I think Sunday night will be a relaxing affair- left over party food and a bottle of wine!!!!
Yay- Monday is a public holiday in WA so I don't have to go to work- woooo hooooo!!! Hmmmm,. maybe a scrapping day for me! Well maybe not scrapping but making tags!! There is only 7 more sleeps until the Scrapboxx retreat and I still have 70 tags to make before then!!!!
Better go- I have a cake to finish!!!
Have a great weekend,
PS- I still can't upload any LOs or pictures- DH says he better get me a new computer- gotta love that!!!

My gorgeous Emma is turning seven on Saturday and it dawned on me on Tuesday that I had better do so birthday shopping for her!!! So after a power shop on Tuesday and another today .... taaaa daaaa- I've finished! I'm not quite organized for her party yet but that's on Sunday so I have a few more days to get sorted! Wouldn't you know it- I see a squillion hawaiian grass skirts around the place and now because I want to buy some for Emma's party- NONE! Leis as well- I had to buy several different sorts because I couldn't buy all the same type!
With the grass skirts... the party girls will have to make their own! Good solution hey! I will get some cardboard waist bands and buy a heap of paper strips and the girlies can have some fun making their own- it will keep the occupied for a while anyway- LOL! Not sure about party games yet- any ideas?????
Is anyone else have trouble uploading pictures on to Blogger?? Twice now I have tried to upload my top ten (See Ali's blog) and when I go to upload my LOs- blogger throws a hissy fit and closes down!!! Anyone else????
Go to go, house to clean, clothes to wash, presents to wrap, party to organize....
Have a great day,
