Weekend stories and things I forgot to mention...

Here's my baby playing hide and seek. Othello had this insane idea that if he hid in with the girls soft toys no-one would be able to find him. (-: It might have worked if he kept his eyes closed - those bright green peepers always give him away. Doesn't he look adorable? Did I mention that he hates my husband and both my daughters? He refuses to have anything to do with them, and he has been like that since he was a kitten. He's about 9 or 10 years old now. As I said, my baby!
Here's Malayla showing off her trampoline skills for mummy. The funny thing is, I used to be able to do this once, too! So at least I know where she gets it from. (-: (giggle!). I'm lucky that both my girls love spending time outdoors.
Meet Rex. He's the class mascot for PrepC (Keana's class). He gets to come home with a different child each weekend, and this weekend it was our turn (lucky me!). He went everywhere with Keana, with me madly taking photos to record the event and to post in Rex's diary. I was up until midnight last night trying to get that done. The things that we do for our children. (sigh!) But I got my revenge - Keana doesn't know it, but Rex got washed on the weekend. Yep, in the washing machine. I sent him back to school this morning all shiny and new. (Smirk!!!)

Here's Rex meeting Pandora. Let's just say she wasn't impressed. Yep, she has that long suffereing look on her face - the "Why me?" thing!!!Othello wasn't impressed either - he actually bolted in the opposite direction once he got a whiff of Rex (must have been the smell of all those school kids on him). Hee! Hee! Hee!
Here's a photo of Jodi Dolbel and myself from the Scrap With V Retreat. It's not my greatest photo, but it's not my worst either. I'll be staying with Jodi when I go to the Papercraft retreat at Gunnedah in August. If I don't come back, it's because I've died of laughter while with her. She is SO FUNNY! Did I mention she's also a Twilight fan like me? Yes, we can be dangerous together (giggle!!!)
And I met another lady while away on the retreat. Her name is Melissa, and she is from the USA. She's a major scrapaholic like me (but much more organised with her storage), and I found her absolutely amazing. She spoilt me by giving me some gorgeous silver chipboard letters embedded with rhinestones, two large acrylic die cut crowns, and some grunge board pieces. So I have to say a BIG THANK-YOU to Melissa, and it was fantastic to meet you! (If you are lurking out there somehwhere, please feel free to contact me by leaving a message on my blog, or on the Scrap With V Forum). I would love to get to know you better! (-:
And for all those who are waiting in suspense, the Wicked Princesses 7 Deadly Sins winners should be announced some time today. So stay tuned...


  1. God, Im dying!!
    Im checking the blog every half hour since 7am this morning!!!
    The suspense is killing me!! Not that i expect anything, but i know you've gotta be in with a chance and i am anxious about that!!!
    I didn't get to chat to Melisaa that much at the retreat.... shame, the little i did talk to her she sounded really great!!

  2. You are so sweet. I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, but the next morning after the retreat my husband was in a awful accident while his car pool buddy was driving. My husbands friend fell asleep and totaled the car. So I have been Nurse Betty to Peter in hospital and out. So I MISSED the Papercraft show and all...It WAS SO NICE meeting you too. I am gonna call you...
