Little Update....

What a busy few weeks it has been....a whirlwind of events and emotions!!!
Still trying to catch up - getting there slowly, but surely!

Firstly a bit of an update on the Scrapping scene...
These are a few of my Rusty Pickle layouts that I completed for this month.
This one is using the Pirate princess collection all available over at Scrapping outback including the chipboard castle.

This one is using the Rockin America line also available at Scrapping outback.

This is using the NEW THRILLER collection....I love this line, I love the earthy deep colours and the patterns are really cool.

After, an absolutely scary experience with Lachy getting injured at dance last week, which resulted in him going to hospital in and ambulance with suspected head/neck injuries. All is good now and he is recovering well - still in pain, but, getting back to normal.
Here are a couple of photos that Lyndon took of him at the hospital - poor thing he looks so pale and the pain and headache was really bad.

Here are just a couple of other class layouts that I taught recently at my Saturday classes - it is amazing the different results that come from the same concept....everyones layouts looked fantastic...

Check out this fun 4 product challenge over at Scrappingoutback for this month. I love seeing what the girls can come up with from just 4 products - it is a challenge sometimes, but hey, thats what it is all about - putting us outside of our comfort zone. Why not duck on over a check out some of the previous months entries.

Until next time.....take care

A Couple more layouts...

I absolutely love this photo - it is not an actual pose....I took this as they were dancing - I just managed to get the right frame.
I have used Rusty pickle "Pop star" and "Candy land" for this layout....I think the colours match perfectly!!!

This one here is a recent class that I did.....It was actually a remake sample of an earlier layout, but it looks so different in earthy colours...I love the end result!
Thanks for checking out my stuff....
Take Care...

Totally about time.....

Yep....I am at it again - being a very very slack blogger!!!!

Once again, things have been extremely busy with the kids dancing, trips away and of course classes - so I will try to catch up just a little.

Firstly, we have purchased a 2nd hand pop top camper trailer - it is 30 years old, but in really good condition.....we love it and have already been camping twice in it.
I couldn't help myself.....I had to add my own flair to the interior - brighten it up and make it ours.
So here are some before and after shots. Her name is "Lizzy" and she is all colour co-ordinated now in bright blues, greens and a little brown.

I have also scrapped a couple of layouts using Bo Bunny papers of our 1st camping trip - there will be more to come very soon.

Next is this months 4 product challenge over at Scrapping outback - this one is a fun vibrant pack loaded with heaps of potential. If you are interested in taking up this challenge just go HERE to get your pack, and just upload it to the gallery for your chance to win next months 4 product kit FREE!!!!
Here is my take on this months 4 products....

Ok, the next big event that has taken place is our trip to Adelaide for the National School Aerobic and Hip Hop championships - this was an extremely whirlwind trip with not much sleep, but it was fun and the kids did so well. We are all very proud of their achievements.

There were a combination of school teams and club teams that made it through to the Nationals - our teams that travelled down were all school teams from Hilliard state school. So with alot of dedication from the coaches, teachers, kids and the parents our little school has achieved National standard - WAY TO GO KIDS!!!!!!
Here are a few pics from their dance routines......

These ones are from the themed dance "She's Cute" - we came 4th by .07.

Thes photos are from the Hip Hop team performance "System Overload" which is coached by Morgans Big sister, Tegan. What an awesome achievement to coach her first school competition team to a National level of 1ST PLACE - NATIONAL CHAMPIONS FOR 2009

The excitement on the kids faces when "System Overload" was announced as the National champions with 1st place was absolutely priceless!!!!

We still have many more competions from now until the end of the year, so things are still going to be very very busy - but I will try to keep things a little more up to date.
Until then....
Take care
