Thursday’s are out scrap and chat nights…we have revamped a little taking into account some forum feedback. From now on, the first and last Thursday evenings of the month – we will have our Recipe/Potluck nights…really a FREE class with a difference. You haven’t seen the end product. Sometimes these recipes will involve a technique, other times it’s just a fun quick layout. Check out the forum for the ‘ingredients’ list on Tuesdays.
It's almost Thursday and my turn at potluck this week....but let's go with half and half.

A photo of Mia when we went fishing the other day...... this is the before photo LOL
Salts damper was heaps nicer than my first attempt.
OMG how dirty can one child get....
Mia and her Carp that she caught.
Below are a few LO's that I have done for the October midmonth newsletter.
This LO was from the Cybercrop last weekend. The girls took these photos.
And also below a few more LO's from the CC and some cards from the leftover scraps.
Mia had her haircut last weekend and Jody straighten it for her.... The photo doesn't do it justice but she just looked so cute and grownup and young at the same time if that makes sense... I like her curl the best though... That night we went to the footy presentation and I am sure she went to the toilet to fix her hair up at least 10 times......... each time she would come out and say does this look beautiful??? So gorgeous.
In other news the girls have a pet fish each, meet Squirty and Lil Baby. Mia owns Squirty (the black fish) and Brie own's Lil Baby (the orange fish) I was quite impressed with the names they chose.

Now onto the sewing, I was lucky enough to win this gorgeous bag pattern from Janelle Wind. It is her new Thelma's day out Bag and I am in love with it. I still have a journal to sew as well but I will get to that hopefully later this week.
Sonia forwarded this email from Marelle, so here a the cards I have sent to Sonia for her to pass on.
I am trying to raise $450 for a friend's mother (who has beat breast cancer twice before) who has breast cancer for a third time. This time, instead of going down the chemo track she has opted for naturopathic diet etc. So, my friend has not told her mum of our plan, so I am hoping to make it come to fruition She needs to have unpasturised goat's milk and since she has limited funds, I need to raise $450 for a goat so my friend can milk the goat for her mum. These goats are really unusual and rare and we have tracked a breeder down in Colac - so I was wondering if I could ask my gorgeous online friends here if you were able to make some cards with positive messages that I could sell around my area to raise the funds.. you would only have to make a couple each then I could sell them to start the fundraising.. The story is quite amazing - my friend has just reunited with her Mother after a considerable time apart (a lot ofyears ) and her children now have a grandma whom they did not know- after they were reunited the cancer came back - so I feel I would like to help , at least to raise money for a "downpayment" on the goat.. So if you would like to help, please mail all cards to me! If you could help, I can pm you my addy and I will then sell the cards and start the ball rolling.. Last year (it took me 4 months to raised $60,000 for a friend's son who is now confined to a wheelchair after a bmx accident (17yrs ) so I am hoping it will only take a short time to raise $450 Thank you my sisters in scrap!xx

Well we had planned a family weekend camping this weekend, so we headed off yesterday afternoon. When we got there James said he wasn't going to set up the tent until nearly dark as he thought it might come in and rain :o( So he started fishing
and the first bite he caught a COD :o) but atm they are out of season and your not aloud to keep them.... not that it was big enough anyway LOL. So we took a photo and let him go :o)
We then started a little fire so I could attempt to make my first damper. It looked so good and tasted yum but was as heavy as a brick LMAO!!!
The girls had fun pottering around and toasting marshmallows in the fire. Brie did a fair bit of laying around as she was pretty tired.
But it soon started to spit and the girls and I had to jump in the car and head home as Salt said I wouldn't have gotten out of there in my car otherwise. Brie fell asleep on the way home and slept until 7.45 this morning.
Salt was home about 15mins later he said it just poured down. So we will have to plan another trip very soon as it will be getting too hot.
Hope your all having a lovely long weekend.

Good morning Girls, I know it is short notice but here are the ingredients for tonight's recipe scrap.
1 Sheet of Cardstock
1 8inch x 9inch piece of Pattern paper (Lightish in colour as you will be stamping over a corner of it.)
1 3inch x 8inch co-ordinating piece of pattern paper.
A 13cm x 18cm photo portrait orientated, landscape would work if the corners weren't to busy. A flourish stamp or chipboard/felt flourish
2 medium - smallish size flowers
1 large button
1 small button Journalling block - I have used a Making Memories noteworthy size one.
Alphas for title - I have used the new Bella Chipz
Mini Alpha stickers.
Now if you wanted to do a boyish LO just substitute the flowers and flourish for some other sort of boyish embellishment like stars.
Hope you can join me around 8pm for a Scrap & Chat & to find out more about our Happy Hour Sale!!!
cheers Amie & Sonia
