"Gift Of Love" Award

Look what I got the other day form the wonderful Janine.

This is called the "Gift Of Love" Award and I get to choose between 4 & 8 people to pass it on to.
Here are 5 fabulous Blogs from my blog list

Been a little out of sorts here.

Isacc is growing up very quickly he is now 14weeks old and his mum (Sam) and dad (Ben) took him to get some professional baby shoots taken 2 weeks ago- he was 11 weeks old then and I just thought I would share a couple of shots with you.

I haven't been a slack blogger or scrapper lately on purpose but it seems that my mojo has taken an extended holiday :(. Please if you find it could you return it to me or better yet leave me a comment on a my blog to inspire me.

Who knows you may just have the right words that will bring the mojo back to me again LOL and if you do I will give one lucky blogger a little RAK just to say thank you.

Victorian Bushfire appeal - Shop at COLES today

The Victorian Bushfires are just devastating as we have all heard on the news since they have happened last Saturday.

My heart and prayers goes out to all those that have been affected by this disaster.

So I am asking everyone that reads this blog to go do their shopping at any COLES store today as they are donating all their profits for today to the bushfire appeal. Please even if its only a couple of items that you are needing from the supermarket like milk and bread, take that little bit of extra time and shop at COLES today. We will be doing our shopping there today.

The RED CROSS are also doing a wonderful job of helping victims from this bushfire and if you wish to donate please follow this LINK. Every little bit helps.

Happy Birthday Mathew

Our oldest son Mathew is 23 today. Here is a snap shot of him with his nephew Isacc. Don't they both look relaxed LOL.

FEB Cyber Crop Layouts from Scrapping Around

These are the layouts I got completed for the Cyber Crop at Scrapping Around this time. I just haven't been well for the past 2 weeks and at this stage we have no idea what is wrong. But I can tell you that 3 blood tests in one week is just 3 blood tests too many.

Challenge #3 - LOVE / HAPPINESS This is a photo of Charlotte, Samantha and I that Rob took on Christmas day. It does remind me about how much fun the 3 of us girls can have together. and thats what the journalling is all about. I used rubons on the ribbon for an added touch of journalling. On the journaling block I used stickers and rubons as well as my own hand writting for my journalling.
