A quick photo update.

Hey there, here's some pics of what we have been up to lately.  I'll be back with a scrappy update soon. 

We took a train into the city for the day a few weeks ago and had some Japanese for lunch and did a bit of shopping etc. We also took some ace pics of the kids. How disgusting are these jackets? (but I do love the pics).

We have been painting and redecorating our lounge room. My scrap room has been painted, I just need to finish reorganising it and it will be done. We also got a new fish tank. It is so AWESOME. I could watch it all day. It's so relaxing.

Our fish tank was a second hand set up so it came with fish. The boys were so excited that it had two clown fish(Nemo and Marlin).But we have added some extras now. We got a dory(blue tang) and a gorgeous blue star fish. 

I have given in to my LOVE for Pandora and got a necklace. I just love it. 
Yertle the Turtle is happy in his new home. He was originally in a tank when we got him from Kinder. He now has a pond, paved area and garden to wander around in. He loves the camera too. He sticks his head right in the lens. LOL.
We LOVE meringues. I have been experimenting with different shapes and sizes. These are our meringue monsters we made for easter.
Some of my Favourite photos from easter

The boys love these. K-nex. They got some for christmas and we play with them all the time.
Declan is a big school boy now and is going along well. I haven't posted any pics yet so here's some. Bailey was made the SRC member for his grade. He made this suggestion box for his class(with a bit of help). Declan made this cute elephant mask at school.
Anyway I'll be back soon with some layouts and some AP updates(lot's going on). I need to take some photos of my layouts. I left it too late today and they were dodgy.

See ya soon

Such a bad bad blogger!!!

Anyway I don't have any excuse for my absense. Except that I haven't really had much scrappin to share lately. Just not really getting anything done. Hopefully I'll get back into it now.

I am feeling inspired ATM. Started a follow the leader ran by Jodie at AP and am starting to get all sorts of ideas. So hopefully I put them on paper.  Jodie is running a number of cool challenges from the cybercrop and even if you didn't make the crop you have until monday night to complete them to be in the running for a RAK. Why not have a look. 

AP is also having a DT competition. you have until sunday night to register and the comp starts on monday. You can find the details at Artypants
or on the new AP blog 

Jodie has updated the shopping cart with some cool Hambly and Basic Grey products aswell as the May kit. It is gorgeous a nice mix of natural tones and blue, Jodie has done some lovely sample Lo's too.

I had a play with the March kit. Here are my sample Lo's etc

I loved using this kit. Isn't that Rose Moka paper gorgeous the kit also had heaps of Buzz and bloom chipboard gotta love that.

This is a Lo I did a while ago using the puzzlesketches pieces

These are my most recent Stuck Lo's don't think I have already posted them.

Anyway I'll leave it at that for the moment. I'll pop back with some photos to update everything else I have been up to.

See ya
I'll try not to disappear for so long this time.
