lovin that its Saturday morning at my place right now!!

yep that means no running around trying to get kids ready for school + kindy + having Finn down at the gate to catch the bus by 8.10am. Relax + do everything at my pace!!

I've had one of those weeks where it seems to take forever to get to Friday but YAY now its Sat morn!!!

So in the world of news its been a huge week for the Aussies losing 2 huge icons - first Steve Irwin + now Peter Brock. Thoughts to their families + friends.

Tell ya what it maybe Spring + the flowers + blossoms are welcomed + look gorgoeus but boy its got cold again. Very typical minute your striping + then the next your layering. Have to say I'm a autumn girl!!

So will it be Toby, Magni or Dilana winning the SuperNova show ? Well I dig Magni but maybe its got something to do with his baldness - YEP Kev is bald Toby is pretty awesome + looks like he might be the winning card atm + Kev well he LOVES Dilana!!! But who knows who will win yet!!!!

See the lastest dare is up on No.8 wired a METAL dare. So i dare you to be challenged - so go and have a looksie + get inspired + have a go. we are lucky enough to yet have another sponsor for this dare - way to S.E .
Its pretty exciting in the NZ world of scrapbooking with DARES + sponsorship from 2 cool online shops, 2 calls that are looking for a design team + then there is the call for Up2scrap ET + SBO being the first in NZ to do online classes. So woohhooo NZ scrappers keep supporting + encouraging each other.

And have you seen the lastest newsletter from SBO? . If you don't get it go + sign up for it now!! And I will leave you with a LO I did for Andrea (owner of SBO) of her 2 gorgeous baby boys - Oliver + Kayne. I got to use some lovely KI memories devoted pp, chipboard + gel candy's - which can be purchased from SBO.

enjoy the weekend :)

Had my first online class today!!!

And here is what we did!!!

I had so much FUN - thanks Donna + Steph for being such good students!!!
Being a first timer at this I was unsure what ppl wanted. So decided to stick to a basic LO but using lots of inking + sanding. I know lots of us do these things already but there are lots of ppl out there who are to scared to try this out. I think I took the girls today out of their comfort zones with doing some messing inking......Steph reckoned she had ink everywhere...........but hey thats what I wanted to hear. I think even Donna might of got a bit dirty
so checkout SBO for their versions of the LO's + be kind + leave them some LOVE!!!

So I will be teaching this class again on the 22nd of Sept. Would LOVE to see you join in on the FUN!! Also remember this mth too you catch classes with Chris + photography with Vicky + Lara + Lara's first class is this Thursday - so join in on the FUN + support NZ scrappers!!!! OK we can call Chris a honary kiwi!!

Its cross country season at school atm. So it was Finn's first cross country race on Monday + he came 3rd!! We were so proud of his efforts!!

Also just had to leave you with this cheeky guy......playing in his favourite spot!!!
Lesson learnt remember to keep the loo, bathroom + bootroom door SHUT AT ALL TIMES!!
And yes his hand is wet cause you know why.....nice one T!!!

oh yeah checkout those yukky spiders on my toilet lid......I so don't do spiders but sil thought it was a great gift!!!???

Also remember to all give your babies a extra squeeze or kiss as we think of ppl atm who have lost someone special recently.

ok ice cream is out.......YUM!!!


ps forgot to say checkout my lastest LO on No.8 . I personally think its a hoot!! The wee stroy makes me laugh everytime!! :)
