Hi all, well here we are at week 21, and life's moving quickly, it wont be long and we will be half way through the year, where does the time go,this weeks spread starts off with my new love, WASHI TAPE, lve seen many girls use this and really haven't been sure if it was really me, but after seeing some at Make-a Page this week l thought l'd give it a go, well l'm just lov'in this stuff, and dont know how l've managed to go without it for so long, l brought 2 packets, a tim Holtz and Hambly studios and used it all through my pockets this week, l hope its not overload- LOL.
Other parts of my week included running my son back and forth to the doctors and physio, after he hurt his back at work, and more happy scrap news when my little package of goodness turned up from America from Nicole Reaves with her stamps, so l kept her packaging because l so loved what she had put on the back - HOORAY FOR HAPPY MAIL.
This week lve included a insert with a pic of me and my scrap'in friend Kylie, she has a scrap business just around the corner from me and on Tuesday has a open day, just wrote some journalling on how grateful l am for her, she is always happy to get prouducts l need and Tuesday is a great day to catch up with Lyn and Ann who also go there to scrap, and l was dying to use my new paper pack from Echo Park , called NOTE TO SELF, lovin that, on the back of the insert is about a card l made for a very old friend , who's mother had passed during the week.
Page 2 - lve had this home tin for quite a long time and l store larger scrap tools in and it was only the other day that l noticed what the smaller writing said, HOME IS WHERE OUR STORY BEGINS, well how true is that, also wanted to add a quote this week, my mum has and still has quotes all over the house, so we have been brought up on them, l love how they really make you think, so lve added one from Helen Keller this week, also added a little conversation David and l had and popped in a pic of us with a love transparency, and added in my docket from my pre-paid phone, so that was another wonderful week at my home, cant wait to see what everybody else has been up to, have a great week and enjoy the pics.

Hi all, well lm back for weeks 17 and 18, last weeks PL was ready to load and then l realized there wasn't enough downloads left, the kids had used up everything, NOT HAPPY, but anyway we are now back on track, Week 17 wasn't a big week as l have been busy will other projects and forgot to take everyday pics, so l did a spread on my family tree Quilt that lm making, when l journaled about it on my card l had added up the couples of the main tree, as in parents , grt grandparents , grt grt grandparents and so on through the lineage of the family and got the total of 33 couples, then this week l realized l had forgoten a few and the total is now 48 couples that we have traced back on both sides of mum and dads family, all these names are being embroided onto the quilt, the quilt at the moment runs the lenght of my queen bed, so lm thinking now with all the names that l have , l will have to to front and back with the names instead of just a normal material backing, this is now turning into a bigger project than l first thought, but a wonderful family keepsake to pass down to the family, so anyway getting back to scrapbooking , that is part of week 17, the next insert is a 8x12 page on the most beautiful rainbow that appeared at the back of our house on the monday afternoon, l've always wanted to capture a rainbow and have been unlucky till now, l haven;t done anything on the back of this 8x12, as lm waiting to get more info on the Lone Pine tree that was planted in Romsey back in 1971, the seed came all the way from Gallipoli and once established was planted in the memory of all the fallen and returned servicemen, l dont know how everyone else in the world celebrate there servicemen, but in Australia, we celebrate ANZAC DAY on the 25th of April, this event is now bigger than Australia day, God bless all these men who fought for own country, so l did a little spread on that as well, so here are the picks.
