I have not scrapped a single, solitary thing for weeks! Can not wait for the LSBS Christmas Cybercrop this weekend to kick off my mojo and get me going again. I have really missed it. I need to stick and paste and cut and paint!
I received an email this week from For Keeps magazine picking up an easter layout I submitted a while back! That will mean that I have had acceptances from all 3 mags and will have layouts in all 3 magazines around April! Very excited about that. Rich is a bit bemused about the whole thing as usual and wants to know if this scrapbooking lark might ever actually make us money instead of just using it ;) ...hehe....silly man. He truly does love my layouts and how happy I am when I am creating; he just likes to get in a little dig every now and then. Men! He'll never really get it will he?
Better go...off to drive down the coast again. 2 more nights, 2 more nights, 2 more nights..............

Have to laugh at this shot...Ethan was not concentrating too well at the end and managed to get left on the field. This is the photo of him after he realised the other mascots had left without him LOL.
Heading into a busy couple of weeks so this may be my last post for a bit. Our catering company is catering for the Schoolies chaplains and volunteers at the Gold Coast for the next 2 weeks solid. We have about 500 people a night to feed before they head out to volunteer each night. Huge job but so rewarding and important. The red frog crew do amazing work. I'd appreciate your prayers for a safe and smooth week. So often little things get in the way to make things difficult, so prayers for my family and their well-being will be welcome too!

My parents gave me some money for my birthday and my sister Tracey gave me the fab big red Women's Weekly cook book...so cool. I am such a geek. My other sister Rachel's pressie is apparently winging it's way from the US which is just a tad suspenseful! I'm hoping it's a Hummer ;) My lovely MIL gave me money to buy some lovely new earrings which i managed to pick up in a jewellery sale for half price...love that! Nice little gold hoops.
This layout is my challenge for tonight's Cybercrop over at Little Scrapbook Shop. It is an 'All about me' CC and this was a self portrait challenge. I have great difficulty scrapping myself, as many of us do, so this was a great stretch for me. Pop into LSBS and check out the cybercrop and inparticular my handy 'how to use an upside down washing basket as a tripod' article...very helpful stuff.
Jarred says I look tired in this photo....well yeah. I am tired. I also just moved another year into my thirties this week and it's all catching up with me. Boys!
I am right now staying awake with a Latte by my side as I am picking up Rich from the airport at midnight or so...yay! Apparently he has a bit of 24 carat love coming my way for my birthday...woohoo :) Nothing says Happy Birthday like some gold hehe. There may even be a couple of *ahem* 'Chloe' handbags in his haul. Lovely. I can't wait to see him. I also have a little gift for him too...I lost my voice :) He will think it's Christmas LOL. I am just a bit run down I think.
The kids have gone off to Grandmas for the night as it was such a late flight so they will have to wait until morning to see him. They were less than happy about it but they will be fine. They are all super excited today too as they have been asked to be mascot members for the Qld Roar soccor game on Sunday nght and run out onto the field with the team...so cool. Can't wait to take some photos of them in their little mascot gear hehe.
