Home Alone!

It is just amazing how much stuff you can get done when you're home alone! No-one to interrupt, no-one nagging "what's for dinner"! Just lil' ol'' me doing whatever my heart desires! :) I also love the fact that you clean the house and it actually STAYS clean for more than an hour or so! I could really get used to that! lol.

Dave & Joel have gone to a motorcross school for the weekend, over at Peak Hill. I'm sure Joel is learning heaps & having a great time. Miss Kate is coming & going, doing her usual thing of partying, socialising....& partying. I think I've seen her all of about 1/2 an hour so far this weekend!

I have spent my time alone doing some scrapping....of course! :)
So I have a few LO's to share....

Actually, the first LO I did this weekend....I can't share yet!
It will spoil the surprise for Niq...who I have done a photoswap with over at SnB. Thanks Kylie for organising was great fun scrapping for someone else....and to think that in the beginning I was feeling too chicken to participate in this...LOL. I'm so glad that I decided to JUST DO IT! I love how Niq's LO has turned out....I just hope that she loves it too! :) I will be posting it off to her this once she's rec'd it, I will then post it here on my blog.

OK, so here are 2 other LO's that I did this weekend.....

This first one is of my dear Granny who is no longer with us. The LO is part of the challenge - "Scrap your Stash" which was created by the very talented Lisa at SnB. The criteria was to use chipboard flowers & brads - from your stash. I have been wanting to do a LO using this technique of layers of torn circles to make flowers - so instead of the CB flowers, I did this instead - but there is still some CB in under the torn paper flowers - just to help them POP from the page. I really love how this one turned out....thanks for the great inspiration Lisa!

Another challenge over at SnB.... this one is a new challenge that's been introduced this year, it's called "Snatch & Scrap"...and I think it's a fantastic idea. This months "Snatchee" was Lexie....and her gorgeous LO can be seen here. I love the simplicity of Lexie's LO - just gorgeous! I love how my "snatch" has turned out too....thanks for the great inspiration Lexie!

Another LO I thought I would share...but this one isn't from this weekend, it's actually from last year...but for some reason I never posted it here. I was looking through my albums and couldn't help but admire I thought I would share ....

A double page LO! Something I haven't done too often lately. This was actually a kit I bought at my local scrap store - that I think came from Aussie Scrap Source? Anyways....I changed heaps of things on the LO just to make it a bit different - something I tend to do alot! Photos are of Kate when she was about 2 years old playing in the back yard when we lived at Yanderra.

And on another note....I have been given an award!!! lol, how amazing is that?!?! Thanks for awarding me with this fantastic award Ness! I'm so chuffed about receiving's really made my day!

This is called The Proximity Award."These blogs believe and invest in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers, who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their awards".

I'm not sure what I am now meant to do....I think I am meant to pass it on to 8 others (lol, as you can tell...I've never rec'd such an award before!). Hmmm...will have to do some investigating....and blog hopping!

Thanks again Ness!

OK, that's it from me...I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
Til next time....Toodlepip!
