Now that I have some fast internet back I thought I would share a couple of pages I did after I had my big clean-up on the Easter long weekend! It's amazing what you find (or more like what you forget you had....lol)
This is one of those rare photos that my hubby loves. Him and his princess snapped on Australia Day. There is no doubt that she is the apple of her Daddy's eye!

And a pic I have been meaning to scrap for a very long time. My rather handsome young Pop in his Air Force uniform. My Pop was a one of a kind treasure. I learnt so much from him and when he passed away it left a big hole in my life. I still miss him every day :)
Woohoo!, I've been tagged! The very lovely, Sarah has tagged me. I have to list 10 things that make me happy, 5 pieces of trivia about myself, and then pass this award along to 5 other bloggers I love...so here goes....
THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY... 1. My kids (This is a no brainer.....lol) 2. Scrapping! 3. Cleaning my house (ok not cleaning it but having it clean!) 4. My husband (I am a lucky wife) 5. Laughing with good friends 6. Sunny days (I don't like the cold weather) 7. Visiting new places 8. Good coffee (love my coffee) 9. Chocolate 10. Music
Bits about me: 1. I am a huge ABBA fan (Sarah and I could do karaoke one night....lol) 2. I hate shopping. I would buy everything online if I could 3. I am extremely claustrophobic 4. I would love to bungy jump one day 5. I HATE spiders!

A gorgeous person with a huge talent. 5. And last but not least, Sarah Lou. She has the ability to make me laugh every single time I visit her blog. Gotta love that!
Whew! It was hard work choosing just 5 people. I have linked everyone's name so stop by their blog and say hello. All these lovely bloggers are super friendly, super talented and I am very glad I have had the chance to know each of them. :)
Sorry I haven't been around much lately. Our internet has been slowed down to dial-up speed AGAIN!

Ok here goes, I will go make myself a cuppa while I wait for the pic to upload......lol

I hope everybody had a fabulous Easter Long Weekend. Ours was nice and quiet and filled with chocolate for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Just the way I like it....lol
Today I wanted to share a tutorial I did for My2Angels. Tracy is starting a resource section to share some cool tips, techniques, tutorials and templates.This was a project I adapted from a book called Paper Sculpt Sensation. The original was like a shadow box kind of thing and much larger. I loved the 3D idea but wanted to use it in a card format, so this is what I came up with.
I am married and have an amazing husband who is also my best friend and we are blessed with 4 gorgeous kids aged 22, 16, 10 and 8. We also have 2 very gorgeous grandsons! The kids are my inspiration and laughter. I am totally addicted to scrapping and LOVE to challenge myself to try new things!
