For this week ...

Well I've recently arrived back from the Airport dropping off my hubby who's off to Melbourne, Australia for two weeks. Wasn't the easiest feat for me as we haven't been apart for a 3-4 years. But exciting also as at the end of it I get to go over for the last weekend being (Queen's Birthday Weekend, NZ's celebratory of it anyway) and I get to Shop, Shop, Shop and see a few sights while I'm at it. I'll be killing two birds with one stone, never been on a plane and never left my country. Having to do it all on my own, how brave!!

Since being back from the Airport we've made a nice batch of pancakes (just how I remember them), my dad used to make them for us on Sunday mornings for brekky.

Last night we went to Rich's boss's 50th birthday. He's a bit of a sleeze, so I made him this card which I thought was very appropriate!!

This is the front:

Waiting in the wings...

Well waiting in the wings for dinner on this cold, cold day is a really yummy roast chook.

We have a couple of broccolis ready for the picking out in the garden, will have to go out in the yukky rain and pick one :( , but well worth it!!

Currently I'm working on my 2007-2008 Album, but may have a wee break from that. I'm very excited about my next project.

Album of my 3 babies!!! My eldest (Damon is now 19), (Jessica is 12) and (Rosaleigh 10 1/2).

This is the album I have chosen, it's white with little booties embossed on the front, it looks gorgeous, photo doesn't do it justice.

Have ordered from the U.S. some absolutely gorgeous papers and embellishments.

Will be using this diecut and putting these little "babies" on the corner of each of my pages, so cute.

Speaking of babies, our rabbits are getting quite big now, they are so cuddly. This is how sister's should act, TAKE NOTE PLEASE JESS & ROSE!!!

And this ....

And speaking of anniversaries ...

Well I'm onto my second marriage, hubby and I have been together coming up 8 years and have recently celebrated our 2nd Wedding Anniversary.

Card for 1st Anniversary ...
1st Anniversary is the year of paper, I made hubby a voucher book, was great fun. It consisted of vouchers like, boys night, night off dishes, sunday sleep in, tv remote for the night, picnics in the park, a day of his choice, etc.

Card for the 2nd Anniversary ...
2nd Anniversary is the year of cotton, I got a scenery picture of Palm Beach, Waiheke Island where we married and had it printed on a T-Shirt for hubby, he loved it.
His pressie to me was a new duvet cover, cushions, and valance for our bed.

Scrapbooking Delights

Well it's the end of a long day, lamb curry for dinner accompanied with rice and steamed broccoli.

Dishwasher's just finished it's cycle, daughter number one's turn to empty in the morning.

Here's a few scrapbooking delights from my heritage album. My brother's (blondy = Martin) and (darky = Justin) they are 6 & 5 years older than myself.

We explored our environment alot as children, we lived near a creek and in the winter we'd like to go and watch it overflow. We'd climb up the drainpipes in the dark and carry our torches and see how far we'd get, someone would wait on the outside and go up to each man hole and lift it's cover. What daredevils we were!!
