the boys have returned to school....{jumps}

I should have got home sooner from drop-off {had coffee with AEIOU parents instead}

I should therefore be cleaning the house {on my backside blogging instead}

I have thought of a name for the fundraiser {but can't confirm anything yet....doh!}

had a really interesting telephone conversation and I'm excited {but can't reveal...yet...heehee}

I finished my entry to Last Scrapper Standing at Forever Always.

{Meggy-Moo looks so adorable in her tu-tu hammering the nails in a stump}

My super-dooper technique was altering prima flowers with Opals. Glad to find out that not a lot of people have worked with them, so worthwile in the end. Was getting really disheartened that all my techniques were uploading in the forum before I could get started. :( But very happy with the overall result of the flowers and the layout too.

Thanks to Loretta Grayson for the template of the birdie and leaves. Was a left-over from her class about a year ago. Never actually finished anything from that session but all the bits and pieces have ended up somewhere in my work. Funny that!!

Here's another layout I did for the Forever Always October newsletter {HERE} based on a new Becky Fleck sketch. Didn't realise it was a mini map so did it on 12x12 after being very confused with the measurements for a long while!!

Trying to be a good blogging-gal-pal lately. Missing out on too much in forums because I'm spending too much time with the family and actually scrapping....fancy that!! I'm having so much fun lately, and Michele (naturopath) is a miracle-worker. I feel like a more confident woman and clear-headed and less anxious about the little things in life. Occasionally I'll spack right out but mostly it's been level-headed GiGi for a few weeks now....LOVIN' IT!!

Be strong (and thanks to the chikkies who still drop by and read!!)
