What a busy week..

Our week has been so busy this week!!  Jorja turned 4 and started Kindy!! :-(  My baby girl is growing up so fast!! :-(  We had a family lunch for her on Sunday, then her friends came around for a play in the arvo!

Nanny made her this cool 'Shrek Swamp' cake, which she loved, and which tasted so yummy!! :-) Unfortunately we didn't get any really good pics of the cake! :-(

Monday July 19 2010 my baby girl turns 4!!

We gave her this cool 'Happy Birthday' Barbie and car, and Aunty Jayne gave her the 'Hottie' Ken doll.

Tuesday morning 20th July, the school holidays were finished, which meant swimming lessons began again.  Brodie swims at 10am (i have to go in with him), then Jorja swims at 10.30am!  This is the normal routine, but this term, she is also at Kindy four afternoons a week, but this week they started on Tuesday, so we had to rush from swimming, grab some lunch, then get to kindy for her first day at 'Big Girls' Kindy!!

She absolutely loves it at Kindy and is telling me at 9am each morning that i need to hurry up and get ready so she can go to Kindy!! lol!! :-)  Bj isn't so keen on her going to kindy though, and gets a little upset dropping her off, but loves it at pick up time!! :-)

So.. Happy Birthday my BIG baby girl!! We love you!! :-)

Class by Charmane Koch!

We had the pleasure of the totally amazing Charmane Koch teaching a class at Top 50 this week, and like normal, her layout was awesome!!  I had to give it a go, and i love how it turned out, as does hubby, which is totally unusual!! lol!  You can get the details for the class here and be sure to load it to the Top50 gallery if you do give it a go!! :)  Here is my layout:

I love this layout so much, that i have also scrapped a girly layout as well.  It looks quite different to this one, but i love it anyway.  I will hopefully get a photo of it in the next few days!! :)

Top 50 ch..

I have been scrapping, but the weather hasn't been so good for taking photos, however i do have something to share!! :-)

This is my layout for the July monthly ch, Ch 1: Anthea's colour challenge.  The criteria was to use black,
white and only 1 other colour and also include a long title, bling,at least one flourish and a non-solid (had to have something breaking it) border on the layout.  I really struggled with this, but once i got started it fell together quite easily!!

123 July ch

Here is my take on the July 123 ch.  The layout needed to follow a grunge theme, be dominantly red, and include the word Passion somewhere on the layout!

I love getting messy!!

Sue's style challenge at Top 50 this month was to have a go at Girly Grunge!! I have been loving pulling out
the old paints lately, and getting messy, so this challenge, although taking me out of my comfort zone, was so much fun!  I also had to include a non-scrapping item and a song title somewhere on the layout.  It took me ages to find a song title to match this layout, as i knew exactly what i wanted it to be about, but needed to find a title to fit.  I am really happy with how it came out though!! :)

What are you doing next week??

I know what i will be doing!! lol!!  I will be scrapping my butt off for....

I can't wait!!  I always get so excited at cyber crop time!  Opening night (Monday 12th at 8pm SA) is so much fun!  We play bingo in the chatroom (you need to pick your words prior and log into the chat room to chat) and scattegories, and announce our mini challenge!!  Not sure what that will be yet, lol, but it is sure to be awesome!! :)  I hope you will join us for all the fun!!  Become a Top50 member and participate in the crop and along with being eligable for all the awesome prizes we have on offer, you will also be in the running to win a random RAK from me!!  All you need to do is leave me a comment here saying you are joining in the fun, and sign up in the forum to let us know you will be playing, then join in all the fun and challenges for the week!! :) Make sure you don't miss out on the free class by Charmane Koch either, as it is sure to please!!  Her stuff is always AMAZING, so i can't wait to see what she has come up with for us!! :)

Hope to see you all there!! :)

My little man..

Is growing up way too fast!! :(  He is 18mths already and is into absolutely everything!! Yesterday i let the kids clean the back glass door for me, so now twice today i have found him out there with the windex cleaning the door with his hand!! lol!! He looks so cute and thinks he is doing such a great job!! :)  Unfortunately i didn't get a photo, but i am sure there will be other opportunities!!

He is also loving music!  When ever he hears it he starts bopping away, he has all the moves, right down to the good old breakdancing!! lmao!!  Don't know where he gets his moves from daddy, but he looks sooo cute!!  Tonight he wanted me to dance with him, and we managed to get this super cute pic as i was spinning him around:

It's July 1st...

And you know what that means... new challenges!! Woohoo, i love the 1st day of the month!! :)  Have you checked out the challenges at Top 50 yet??  Once again the girls have excelled with the challenges!  Way to go girls!! :)

My challenge this month is a scraplift challenge with some set criteria based on a layout by Paula.  Her layout just kept jumping out at me from the gallery!! :) Here is my example for the challenge:
