Week 1 Complete

Week 1 of Sketchbook Olympics completed! This weeks event was Cycling. It had to include circle/dot paper & have a wheel, circle theme. I did the photos of Scott & I. I used a sheet from my paper pesto win for the background, the teal is vellum & bazzil. Main title : "Our Cycling Phase 94" Journalling: "Looks like even we though it was a bit of a joke." "I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike, I want to ride it where I like." "The bicycle is the most efficient machine ever created: Converting calories to gas, a bicycle gets the equivalent of 3000 miles per gallon."
Now we are just waiting for the announcement of the next event.....

Spring Cleaning

Yes I know I'm a bit early, but don't stop me once I get going!
Anyway the kids have been driving us nuts using the computer on my scrap desk, so all 4 of us are in one room & I can't really get to my desk anymore. So I spent the last 2 days organising & throwing out heaps of my old sewing stuff. I had heaps of fabric that I will never use & boxes that have just moved from house to house without being opened. So now there is room for another computer! yay! & I filled my boot with recycling! I couldn't wait till Monday to empty my boot either, had to go for a special trip to the recycling bins. I feel so much better & can't believe how much I threw away! Now I just have to research the use of fabric in scrapbooking pages for all those lovely patchworking scraps I couldn't part with. LOL

Happy Anniversary to us

Well its been 12 long years :-) & they have been great! We went out for dinner with some friends last night to the Mexican Cafe in town, then to another friends for desert. It was a really nice evening just cahtting with friends. Hmmmm shall I upload a wedding LO? Started on wedding album this year, yes I know what you are thinking, but we do have a proffessional album.

I was so excited about Nicola's ballet photos I have already scrapped them!!!! I used that nice new Kaiser black & pink paper & heaps of bling!!!!

I was feeling un-inspired so I have been working on redoing some of my 8 1/2 x 11 pages. Did 5 today!!! Not that they are that difficult. Here is the most interesting, of a ski trip Scott & I went on before we were married, 94 I think.

Ballet Lessons & visit from Tooth fairy

It's been a busy day! This morning was Nicola's second ballet lesson. They all look so cute running around behind the teacher. She has even been practising at home during the week & wants to wear her clothes & shoes all the time. She cried for about a hour when I took them off her this afternoon (she had split chocolate on them so I wanted to wash it out!)

Last night during dinner Daniels left front tooth came out & today his right one did. So now I am calling him "the tooth-less wonder" & he is whistling thru the gap, LOL.

Scott also started to fix the wall in the kitchen which we had to move to make our fridge fit (we have a beautiful double door fridge). It looks so nice, even only with the bare gib up.
