What a rainy cold day today here in Canberra. A perfect day for craft (finger painting, cutting, tearing and pasting.. almost scrapbooking :) ) and biccies making. The girls and I made some yummie date and oats biscuits. Gorgeous.

I've done so much scrapping lately, just lovely!!
Been taking part in challenges and DT competitions.
I have just entered all my 4 entries to the Blumars DT challenge. We'll hear by the end of the week, hopefully, who is the lucky girl. Or I should say lucky girls as the lovely Maria is looking for 3 girls to add to the Design team. Keep your fingers crossed for me!!
Here are all my entries.

I am also taking part in a challenge at 123 scrapbooks and these are my entries so far. I so much love the LO, it came together really quick (well for me anyway) and it all fell into place.

On Thursday my sketch will be the monthly sketch for Crafting in Style Stylish Sketch blog. Ally always has a lovely prize to give away but you can also win a month long GDT at our sketch blog. How cool is that. I hope you all are going to check it out and take part. But wait till Thursday for the new sketch. (a little hint.. you'll need wallet size piccies).

This was my take on last weeks gorgeous sketch. I am so happy with how this one turned out. I really need to do some more LO's of the kids when they were wee bubs so I made a start.

I can't somehow not turn the pic today.. but you get what I mean :)
On Saturday I went to ACTSA and was so so lucky that someone pulled out of stamp camp in July so now I can participate and do 3 classes with Rachel Greig. Can't wait :)

Last weekend both Allan and I had work dinners at different turkish restaurants, I had such a lovely time on mine. It was nice to hang out with my colleagues out of work and just chat and have a lovely dinner.

When Allan had his dinner the kids and I had nice pancakes for dinner with ice cream for desert, I love doing simple fun stuff with the kids.

The next day we didn't have to cook either as we had dinner at our friends. Lovely home made sausage, yum!! I love have dinners with more people, so much fun!!

We are all slowly getting over our bugs.... not totally over it but we're getting there... slowly! Thanks for all your well wishes and thank you to the lovely people always leaving such nice comments, I really appreciate it!!

Happy scrapping!!
