My ? if page is one that I did for a chal over at DD's as well. The photo on the page isn't all that great but I loved it. Craig set up our camera on a rock, set the timer then raced up to sit with me before the camera went of. The journaling was a bit tough for me to work out just how to do it and when reading it to Craig the sook I am I started to cry.
My blur page was one I ended up doing for an hour challenge over at Em as well. I can't believe I've actually been home two Sundays in a row to be a part of one. Not too sure how that one will go in the cc comp though as I realised when typing in the discription of the layout when I was loading it into the gallery that I forgot to add a tag.It is going to be a great round this time. Ali is going to be setting a sort of photo swap set up for this round and everyone has to email in thier entries to her so that it will be an anomyous (sp) round so to speak.
Asher and her embellished lost poster turned up this week in the car park at Bunnings. Now I've got to think of some other places to take her and it this week.
I went out to Steph's on Saturday night for a dt crop and had a great time. She set us all a challenge with a monchramatic pack that she wan'ts us to sub into one of the mag calls that is happening here. I pretty much got it finished that night. I just have to do some journaling. Will probably get to it some time tomorrow. We also got our next pack and I can't wait to scrap with it. I also should be getting one in from Arty Pants too.
Anyway I think I've written enough of an essay so till next time.

I've finally finished my idol page. Not all that fussed on the beading side of it though. Will take a pic and post it in the gallery over there tomorrow. Which is looking awesome by the way. Ali has brought in a great twist for the next round. I'm looking forward to it if I make it through though. We will have to scrap someones elses photo and then email it over to her for her to upload so it is going to be an anonymus (sp??) page so to speak.

I also thought I'd share a few photos of Asher as I haven't recently. This one was taken a few weeks back on a trip out to Rocky Beach. It was so nice out there even if it was a little windy.
This was one of the few I took when we went to the show a few weeks back. Asher had so much fun we will deffinately have to take her again but I will probably have to start saving for it earlier as it was an expensive day but then it could of been worse. Asher wanted to go on the bumper cars with Craig and all was hunky dory until they got bumped into quite hard and Asher's glasses went flying. Asher started crying she was so upset. They landed on the rink and Craig had reached out to get them but got bumped again and lost them. Luckily they were found about five minutes later still in one peice with scratches galore on the frames on the other side of the rink. Next time we will definately take them off.
This photo was taken up at Kings Park. Asher was having so much fun running down the hill that I had to take a photo. Yeah it's not a great one but I love it. I took this just before she jumped into my lap. The cheeky thing.

New page and some news.
Over at DD's (in my side bar) they have got an autumn challenge going on at the moment. I've not got any autumn photos here at home but my friend Anthea let me scrap one of hers. I am so happy with how it turned out. Now to work on my tag challenge page but I've got a few other things to do before getting to that. I've got a sugar cube sitting here waiting to do. I had so much fun doing the one up for Jodie at Arty Pants that when I noticed that Steph had them in stock I said that I would do one up for her as well. My sugar cube that I did for Arty pants is now in the shop so if anyone is out that way and wants to pop in and check out the shop they can check out my cube as well.

I got my next themed challenge in from Arty Pants the other day and it has really got me thinking. I have got an idea but not too sure if I will go with it or not. Will think on it for a bit then probably work on it over the weekend.
Not much else has been happening here at home. Work is a bit up and down at the mo but I go through phases like that. Some days I like it and others it really sucks. I guess having been told that I can't be garenteed(spelling?) that I will be able to be on the permament shift I am now next year isn't helping. I had asked to do it so that I can take Asher to school in the mornings and have some contact with the school as with both me and Craig work's hours we had to use afterschool care. With school starting at 8.30 and the late shift starting at 9.30 it gives me an hour to get to work which is ample time. Anyway I guess time will tell. I do hope that it can be left as is because even though I may grumble and groan ocassionally I like what I do and the girls there are a great bunch to work with.
Anyway that's about all from me for now. Till next time happy scrapping.

The 2nd challenge of the night was to do a page about your idol. I don't really have any idols now as an adult but I loved ABBA as a child so did my page around that. I had heaps of trouble trying to find a pic though. Allthe ones I found on the net the pizzel size had been reduced so they didn't look right printed. I ended up heading out to Mum's to see if she had any of our old albums still there and she did so I scanned the picture of the cover of their gratest hits volume 2 album.
The 3rd challenge was to use primary colours, red blue or yellow and incorperate three different shapes. I had a lot of fun with this one and love how it came out. The pics are of Asher at the show in the tea cup ride. Asher wanted help with this one so I gave her a peice of paper and shedrew a picture of herself in the cup which is on the tag behind the big photo with some more journaling. Don't look too close Lorrie but when I had finished it I realised there was just a splash of orange too.
The 4th and last challenge was an insiration page. I must first apologise for the crappy pic as it was hard to get a good one.
I had always liked the flower design on one of my shirts and I used that as the insirpation for my page. I included the photo of my page with the shirt and the close up one as wll to give you more of an idea of what it looked like. I had wanted to try and do it brown but I didn't have any brown bazzil.
Well thats about all for now guys. I have got a few more layouts to share but I think I will leave that till my next post. Till them happy scrapping.
