Hope you had a wonderful Christmas. We spent Christmas at my SIL Jan which was lovely. Yummy food and lovely company. The kids were having a great time too. Chris is the only teenager so there is not much for him to do but he was good and just hung out with the littlies and entertained them.
The next day Chris wanted me to take him to the mall as he had been saving up for his present and it was time to buy it, lol. Him having a job has been so good for him. I'm just surprised in a way that he is so good at saving up... doesn't have that from me!!

Chris got his formal photo's the other day. I thought he looked gorgeous in his suit!! He said the party was great! Before they had their dinner and party we joined him for the ceremony. Lucy thought it was pretty fun and sang loudly twinkle twinkle...while every one was getting ready to sit down lol.

So College after the holidays... hope he has enough discipline to do it....

Here are the official piccies from the formal.

Chris and some of his school friends

We are going to visit little Sophie next week so I'll share some more piccies and hopefully some LO's about her very very soon!!

Happy Scrapping :)

On Friday night my stepson Drew and his girlfriend Melissa welcomed into the world their beautiful little gorgeous girl Sophie May. Oh she is so so cute!!!! Allan went up on Saturday morning to welcome his first grand daughter. I stayed home with the kids so Drew, Melissa and Sophie can settle in a bit first. We'll go over very very soon though, I so can't wait to meet the little princess.... so what does that make me??? lol. Anyway, here is the gorgeous little girl...

Grandpa and his grand daughter ;)

The proud daddy and his little girl
I think I'm in love...

December CC

Tonight we have our monthly CC at ScrapBoutique. I am going to upload my challenge early as we are going to another Christmas dinner. :)

The CC starts at 7.30 pm EDST with Chels her challenge. All the other challenges will be uploaded on Friday night (except the Sunday roast of course). Hope you can join us!!

This is my LO, for the challenge itself you will have to go into the Boutique's forum ;)
It was so cute. Lucy was in my room doing something. I wasn't sure what but grabbed my camera just in case (hey, you know you'd do it too!! ;) ). She was busy cutting and was so concentrated that she didn't notice me. She was making herself a little skirt and used my dst to stick it on her body. Even some cute hemlines were added hehe.
These art boxes were a class I taught at the Chrissy workshops. They were so much fun to make!!
Last picture of today is our Chrissy card. I don't know everyone's address so I will give it to you like this; hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!!!!

Hope to see you this weekend at the Boutique!

Happy Scrapping :)

Month of December

Are you doing a December daily album this year?? I have done one for the last 2 years and am doing one again this year. This year I am doing a digi one though. Just because this time of the month is quite hectic and I probably wouldn't get it all done and would not be happy about it. I do feel a bit like I'm cheating though doing it digi. I am using the templates from Katie Pertiet. It's so easy to do... If only I would not forget to take photo's from all the fun moments... Last night Lucrecia and I went to Wrapped in Paper for their annual Christmas party which was great fun (*Waving* Hi Renee, so lovely to have met you!!) followed by having our favourite dinner of roast duck. I did have my little camera with me but totally forgot to take any photo's!! AArrgghh lol. Oh well, it's ok. I'll just have to write about those moments.

Last Saturday it was the first time in a long long time that Allan and I went out together. We went to a party from one of his old school friends and it was lovely to do something fun together. Next week we'll do it again, going to a Christmas dinner for my work. Hhmm.. I might get used to this :)

No LO's to show today as they are for the boutique. Am working on a cute little mini album atm, very nice :)

I'll show you a few of my digi pages though. Nothing fancy, but fun to do nevertheless!

Happy Scrapping :)

Wow December already... not much longer till Christmas. Tomorrow at work we are going to have a gift making day, should be good :) Really need to get a bit more in the Christmas mood I reckon... not much there yet.

My friend Donna came over with her gorgeous 2 girls on Sunday. It was raining outside so all we did was eat, drink cuppa's and chat, perfect :) The girls had a lovely time playing together, so nice to see them having fun!! She also brought me a big box of Cherries (she lives near Young) oh my... they are so so gorgeous!!

This month at ScrapBoutique I am giving everyone the monthly Challenge. My challenge is to scrap your new years resolution. I am going to hang mine in my room so I won't forget!!!

Every month the stylist all get a sheet of the same paper and we all do something with it. This month we all got a sheet of Cosmo Cricket Cherry Pie (oh I love CC ) and this is what I did with it. Lucy just loves little misty. She is so cute and sweet. Even sleeps in their arms... awwwww

Hope you all will have a go at the lovely challenges at ScrapBoutique this month!!!

Happy Scrapping :)
