I scrapped...

I have finally got something to show
for the month. I have had a couple
of half done Lo's hanging around
for weeks, just staring at me, daring me
to finish them. Trouble was they
were wrong, couldn't work out why
until a day or two ago.
So yesterday at work I fixed them,
I took to both of them with my scissors
and remounted them and felt
much better about them.
The first one here of Jed was on Kraft,
way too much white space, so I cut it
back and remounted it on the green, added
the touch of red? and there you have it...
done. Cept I would like to add
some journalling, but my printer is
on the fritz, so that will have to wait.

This one of Sophie, was just wrong, wrong
wrong, had no idea why, then it hit me,
too much pink, so I trimmed it down,
stuck it on the white c/s added that little
touch of colour on the side and that was
all it needed.

I {heart} this one.
so simple, so quick but so lovely.
I have used a bit of paper from last
months girl kit at Bons,
just that paper, using the bracket from the
cut off piece at the bottom, a doiley,
some Kaiser rub-ons, bit of string,
a flower and some hat pins.
How bloomin simple hey.
Bet I cant do another just like it.
{always wanted to add that somewhere}

So now I had better do the challenges for
the July CC. They are pretty damn good
this month too. Cept for the one using red,
but I can do that now, so all is good.
The photo prompt is a bit hard today, something
pink, be it food, flowers circles or what-ever,
I just done know what to do,
and my camera battery is flat, so
better charge that up asap.
Thanks for stopping, if you have stuck with me
til the end of this ramble thanks!!!

Not such a good idea after all....

I was reading on google
last night about using the shadow button,
it was supposed to make the pics more
natural looking. Everything is red,
not so good after all. Looked
lovely on the camera. Not so
good on the puter.

I took out all the colour on this one
just to see if it looked any better.
Not sure I like it in B/W.

This is a self portrait. Using the Nikon,

brilliant shot.

She didn't like the way I put

on her eye shadow, but I think it looks

ok in the pics.

And this crinkly old bat allowed

Tiff to take a pic or two, most have

been deleted, a bit hard to focus on

eyes when you are not sure what you are doing.

I must say I really like this one though.

I have used it for my AV over at

Bons and also on FB.

Before lunch.....

I decided to take a whole lot of
random shots of my day.
The wind was still blowing and
I didn't think we would be doing
much at all.
I used the vacuum, the washing machine,
chatted on both phones,
made some soup {yum} and
noticed the star cookie cutter sitting
on the bench from the night before.
Of course we had to sample
the soup for lunch, so Mmmmm.

Then Tiff thought it might be
a good idea to draw on the front sliding
window with some texta's.
I found these U-beaut wipe off
texta's at Woolies one day,
so good, keeps her occupied for
ages and she can clean it off with
a swipe of the duster on the end.
Pretty cool to be able to take
a pic of her drawing from inside too,
she was pretty happy that she could write
backwards so neatly,
pity about the spelling though,
but just how do you spell

so that was our morning,
afternoon follows this post.

After lunch...

we went for a walk here...

and played with the sand and shells

and did a lot of this.

I am so glad the wind stopped mid-afternoon.
Again we pretty much wasted the day,
but sure had a lot of fun doing it.
Dont you wish you had of been here
to enjoy it with us.

we went for a little walk under the trees
in the neighbours yard.
Tiff messed around a lot,
took some photos,
and let me take some of her.

Some of the things we found while
we wandered. I nearly trod on one
of the fungus things before I even noticed it,
then Chris {owner of property}
pointed us in the right direction to
find some more.
Tiff spotted the wallaby hiding
behind some long grass, he let us get
very close before he decided to move,
the protea was up near the mechanic's,
he was doing the rego check on my car,
and the big pot looking thing
is in Chris' driveway,

I really should have been scrapping, but it
was such a beautiful day,
really too nice to stay indoors.
After our walk we came back and
cooked apple pie, Tiff made jam tarts,
and I cooked mince chow mein.
All in all, it was a pretty good day.

6 Sleeps.........

until PEANUT makes his/her grand debute
I cant believe that it is 9 months
already, seems like only
a month or two since Craig and Tegan
told us the great news.
I am a wee bit jealous at the moment,
Sheri is already in Tumut,
we managed to find a ride for her
with a friend today, so she
will be johnny on the spot if things
move fast up there.
Tiff and I will be waiting for the phone
to ring with the message to get
in the car and drive, it is going
to be the longest trip I have ever made,
I am sure it is going to feel as if we will
never get there. Craig was yanking my
chain today and saying that he would
let us know in the morning if Peanut
decides to come in the middle of the night.
At least I hope he was only joking.
There is snow predicted for Tues and Wed,
that is a bit of news I was hoping not to hear.
So little Peanut, anytime you are ready,
you know we all cant wait to meet you.
