General update

We booked our flights for our trip home. I'm looking forward to eating a lot. We can't wait for meat pies, lamb sandwiches, silverside, sausages, ice break (that's for Michael) chocolate of course, and I'm sure plenty of other things too. I have my good friend Nic's weddinig while we are there, as well as my high school reunion. No idea what I will wear to either yet. I'm looking forward to seeing my friends Tania and Leisa from school. Kyan is counting the sleeps til he gets to see all his grandparents, and I'm sure they are equally as anxious, especially since 3 out of 4 of them have not met Cameron yet. The boys are both good, althoguh Cameron is having a bit of a whinge fest at the moment. I wonder if he is having a growth spurt.

I headed out to take a few photos today. It's definitely getting towards Spring. I found lots of flowers to take photos of. I'll upload them to my photography blog over the next few days once I have had a chance to edit them.

I have been busy trying to get lots of jobs done now beofre we go away. I've put a couple of new classes up at MCC.They are both projects and I have special offers on both of them at the moment. One you can do for just $10 and the other one you can get for FREE (conditions apply) Check out the site for the details.

Kyan has been doing more and more artwork lately. I'm trying to do some with him plus he does some at playgroup and at the Y, so I am putting together an art journal for him. Each time he brings something home, I photograph it and am putting together an album. It wont be scrapped. Just photos with a label. I've been doing some for a friend as well, and hope to do some more around the place.

Two new challenges went up around the place this week. The new Out From Behind the Camera challenge is up at The challenge is to scrap your best physical quality. Here's my sketch and my layout.

The new Dt challenges are also up at I did Kerryn's challenge this month. It was to use only black, white and green. Here's my sample.

New class

Just a quick post to let you all know that I have opened up a new class at It is using my sketches for card making. Don't forget that Aussie's can play too, since you complete the class in your own time.

Here are some projects I have done for

Cameron is doing well. He smiles whnever he sees us, and even if we ask him to a lot of the time. He is starting to giggle a little bit.He's not sleeping right through the night, but he does go straight back to sleep after his feed. Kyan started Playgroup last week, so that he can hang out with some kids his own age. He seems to like it so far, especially since they have Thomas toys there.

Michael is currently on his way to Cape Canaveral. He had to go to Florida for work, and it turned out that they happen to be launching a space shuttle tonight, so he is very excited. It's something he has always wanted to see. He's taken all the camera gear, so hopefully he will have something to show for it when he comes back.

2CC March kit.

The new DT have started at and they ahve done a great job with the kit this month. Here are my offerings. The layouts are part of an 8x8 mini album all about Michael, which I made just by tying some page protectors together. The 3D elements are all on the outside of the plastic protectors.

We have made some changes to the forum, with a new kit area. If you haven't been over to the site for a while, come and check it out. There are a stack of new sketches there too.
