{Scrapbooking Champion & Baby Show Winner}

Our local show is on this weekend and I just thought you all might like to know that I won the BIG RIBBON..... I am the champion scrapbooker for 2008. Now yes this is exciting BUT at 2pm I entered Brie into the baby competition her section was 6 months to under 2years so she only just scrapped in by 10 days and she won the Baby Show. I am so proud of her.... I actually think I was more excited about Brie getting her first trophy and ribbon :o)

Congratulations to all of the other winners from the scrapbooking, everyone is just so talented and it was great to look at everyone's work on display. Narelle and Monique do a beautiful job displaying our special talents.

Have a great night everyone we are heading back out to the fireworks.

Amie xx

{Happy Birthday to my Gorgeous Miss Mia}

My gorgeous little Mia turned 4 today and we have just had the best day. We woke up and she opened her presents and was pretty excited about them all even though she knew what she was getting as she picked them out!! We then had breaky and then she had a few birthday phonecalls from family, at 11 we headed to the park for birthday cake with a few friends and their kids. As I am the most unorganised person I didn't think to organise her party before we went on hols.
We then went out to lunch came home and played totem tennis and used the roller skates.... I can see there is going to be so many stacks before she learns to use them. We went to Grandma and Grandads for dinner. Mia told me she wanted Party Pies so she was easily pleased especially when Grandma puts candles in them :o) We came home about 8 as Brie had fallen asleep luckily I had already bathed them and Mia hopped into bed watch Curious George on dvd and I layed down and gave her a cuddle and said did you have a great birthday Mia and she said I love you mum I had a great day!!! Tomorrow when I wake up we can go to the park again and I can play with (a few of her friends names were mentioned) and I said no I have to go to work and she said well when you get home we can go to the park and I can play with ( a few more different names were mentioned). LMAO and then she went to sleep. She is just so cute.
Happy birthday Mia I am so glad you enjoyed your special day.

{Scrapbook Creations}

*** Edited I have added a better photo now :o)

Today the best happy mail arrived my first published LO in print, how good are scrapbook creations they send a copy of the magazine back with your LO... I have just scanned the mag so it is a bit crooked and not very clear but it is the top one. The pic is quite washed out but it is still exciting to have my first LO published, next month I will be in the real life real stories section of Scrapbooking Memories and have another LO being published in Scrapbook Creations and then I have a break and I will be in the next one as well.

I have about 2500 photos to sort through from the last 3 weeks I have had so much fun taking photos of weddings and holidays even if I learnt a valuable lesson at Kristals about the memory card being easily wiped...... long story I have never been so sick in my life instant diarrhoea I have never ever experienced anything like it, but all I can say is thank god for recovery programs.

I will start sharing photos as soon as I sort through them. I am having huge withdrawals at the moment not having scrapped for nearly 3.5 half weeks so I am busting to get back to it and I will have heaps of inspiration this weekend as Forever Always are having there Cybercrop.

Night all :o)

Home for a day then off again!!!!

Had an awesome holiday I have about a 1000 photos to go through and edit them.

LOL I am off to Cowra today to drop the kids off at my mums so I can go to a wedding in Molong on Saturday. Lets hope I don't have any dramas with the photos this time :lol: The girls are so sick of being in the car after Salt drove all the way home from Burleigh Heads on Wed, We didn't have a great start to our trip we had an accident on the hwy heading to Beau desert about 8am in the morning.... Luckily no one was hurt, well the cars were but we were still able to drive home which made hubby happy as he left for Darwin last night and it would have been major dramas if he had of missed his annual fishing trip in DARWIN!!!! Back to the accident we were driving in the rain and the 2 cars in front of us were slowing down for some reason that Salt couldn't see I was in the backseat as Brie had just vomited from the hills.... so I wasn't any help. Next thing he knew the car in front of him slammed on the breaks to miss the kangaroo that had slipped on the road in front of her and she didn't want to hit it ? Why you would slam on you breaks in the rain on a busy highway if she had of just hit it we wouldn't of hit her :evil: So anyway Salt was only going about 70ks when he put his breaks on but the car slid that far and smashed into the back of hers. He said he couldn't go round her as he would have had a head on with cars coming at us and if he had gone the other way he would have rolled the car on its side. Both the girls hit there head on the dvd players in the car and were crying I settled them down and got out to see the damage. The poor girl was so upset saying it was her fault and she had been beeping her horn at the kangaroo cause she didn't want to hit it know wonder the kangaroo slipped on the road she would have scared it..... Anyway to make things worse it is our fault and we have to pay the excess to get the car fixed even though she was nearly at a full stop in the middle of the highway. Anyway no one was hurt and both cars were still drivable we are just very lucky that we didn't have a truck coming behind us as he would of not been able to stop and it would have been a lot worse.
