Let's see if I can remember everything that's happened in a week.....
Inkredible's VIP Night
These girls were way too keen for me to come to the very last one of this year. I hadn't been to any VIP night or class for a while, so I figured they'd just missed me (boohoohoo...)
Instead, they surprised me with a yummy Choccy Mud Birthday Cake and a lovely present!!!!!
This is a pic of the other bits and pieces I picked up...as well as more paper (yeah, could't help myself LOL)
Thank you Tamara and Kathleen for all your support and friendship this year. I look forward to next year - lots of success and creativity to you both!!
Ummm, next. We got a new retaining wall at the front and driveway. Just enough to keep Rainer from scooting off again - which really adds to the grey hairs!!
It was also Mackinley's first week of school hols, so we have "Mack & Mum" trips.
This holidays we went to the Science Centre and I also took him around the State Library which is such an impressive way to study!!!! Took the lift to Philip Bacon Gallery where they had the best political cartoons of 2008. Surprisingly, he loved it!!!
Lots of trips to the neighbours and relatives for swims also. It's been crazy hot!!
Rainer finished Prep!! Feeling very relieved and a little emotional. I can't believe the total is now over $400 for the Sensory Room. I am keeping the money in a safe place until I get a proper list of equipment needed. I know what I want, but need to have a conversation before I go shopping (and a place to store it all LOL).
Scrapping!!! This is the layout for the final round of Bon's Kit Subscription Comp. I did the Write Now challenge....
Materials: spotty felt from Spotlight, circle paper is a Mombassa shopping bag, rainbow paper is Jessica Singh (in frankie magazine), giraffe is A2Z scraplet, Buzz&Bloom denim strip, Kaiser fozz felt and rhinestones, Scenic Route alphas, sequins.
Don't worry, none of it actually touches the photo, so this rare photo will last!
A lovely RAK from Kylie Beard.
Thank you Kylie. I have a good supply of mini books now so I'll have to fill them in 2010!!
Also, last night our first ever Street Party!! After 15 years living here, we have a Street Party. It was awesome. We coincided the party with the Rotary Santa visit.
Here is Santa throwing lollies out for the kids, and predictably there's a mosh pit like response.....love the photo!!!
And a lovely shot of the kids chasing Santa's trailer...oops, I mean SLEIGH, with the adults in the distance.
Okay, I think that's it. Terribly hungover but the weather is being kind today.
If you've come this far.....are you ready for another class?
So many people to thank already!! Keep your eyes open for some sneaks appearing next week and I'll have the new blog ready too....yipee!!!
p.s. need a new word for 2010!!
