It's almost under control...

Well, for those of you who don't know yet - My Mum and I have taken over the Scrapping outback has been a long process learning how to run the site, upload new products, and just to figure out what is what????

We, with the amazing help of our Queen bee - Julie have almost got it under control!!!! Yippee...

It is an exciting process, but very scary at the same time. I, with the help and encouragement of Mum and Jules have some exciting new things coming up for 2009. This is going to be a very exciting new year for all of us!!! So please duck on over - have a little look around - sign in and become a member of our great little group, we would all love to meet you.

Now for some other scrapping stuff - A couple of new kits......I know, you are thinking what the????? - Well, because we are coming up to the school holidays - (somebody shoot me NOW!!!), and as most of you know, I don't run classes through the holidays due to the havvoc that the childerbeasts cause. So I have decided to get a few more kits organised - that way you can still get your scrapping class fix without the added plus (NOT) of my kids causing chaos whilst I am trying to teach.
So here they are, you can still purchase them from here OR........Woo hoo!!!! you can go to the Web site - Scrapping outback and purchase them there.

Thanks for looking.

Another version of the calendar kit...

Just thought I would share with you a different version for the 2009 Calendar kit. This one is a much softer, prettier version more suitable for Grandmas or Mums. You can still put photos where the flowers are if you prefer.

Hope you like.

Tegans 18th Birthday...

Well the day has finally baby girl has turned 18!!!!!
What a massive milstone for her as all her friends have already turned 18 and she is one of the only ones left......
She was so excited, and just couldn't wait - (Just quietly - I could!!!!), now she is able to do everything legally.....??
I guess now the stress starts even more waiting for them to come home after their nights of clubbing. She seems to have a pretty good head on her shoulders, so hopefully she will behave, but still have loads of fun!!!
Congratulations Tegan....Happy 18th!!!!
We love you...
Mum and Dad xx

And now for the 2nd part of the evening...

At 9.00pm a group of them got a limo down to the gold coast to go clubbing - they were all so excited and all dressed up looking glamorous - drinks in hand!!
The limo picked them up from our place - WOW - talk about decked out in luxury. Their driver was Nigel and apparently he was so nice and very cool, they had so much fun on the trip down.
All I can say is "poor Nigel' - he must be amazing to put up with all the laughter, screaming and very loud music, they were all very impressed with him.
I did have a Maxi taxi booked for them to come home at 4.30am, however they all decided to come home earlier at about 2.00am - Now heres the bit that blew me away........When I booked the taxi, I was told $160.....Yes expensive, but at least they were all coming home safely. Well when I went out at 2.30am to pay for the taxi - the driver said he was quoted $266......but he did it for $200 (how generous!!!!) $200 - It was a maxi taxi - but, talk about rip off!!!!! The limo cost $260 and they got all the luxuries with it - You have got to wonder how it's all justified. Oh well, lesson learnt, I guess!!
At least, they all had a good night, were well behaved and got home safely.....
Here are a few piccies of their fun!!!

I might add cleaning up took several hours and many garbage bags and alot of clanging of bottles, but all worth it to see their happy faces.
Now, I have 4 years to the next one..... Jaydon's.
