Just like to clarify...........

Now I know that this is the second time in about as many posts that I've shown this LO - but I've just looked at my copy of my SM Masters mag and am astounded at the colour difference with which they have printed my LO - now this is the REAL colour And this is what it looks like in the mag!! Not even close and those bright colours aren't really me!! The Heidi Swapp ledger alpha looks GREEN in the mag!!lol
Anyway - not complaining about the HM but just don't even like the LO in the mag and I love my one in real life!

Some more Masters entry.......

LOL - I went to upload the rest of my masters entry but realised I must've deleted the pics off the computer so I've only got my double left on here - I'll upload my mini-album and storage item later when I've got more time!
OH - and this is a christmas challenge.......seems to be the season
Anyway - I'm so looking forward to christmas and so better get on with organising.
You all have a fabulous christmas, won't you??
And I'll just leave you with this I read on Roz' blog.

A woman was Christmas shopping with her two children. After many hours of walking down row after row of toys, and of hearing both her children asking for everything they saw on those many shelves, she finally made it to the elevator with her two children in hand.
She was feeling what so many of us feel during the holiday season time of the year; the need to get the perfect gift for every single person on our shopping list, the overwhelming pressure to go to every party, to taste all the holiday food and treats, to make sure we don’t forget anyone on our card list, and the pressure of making sure we respond to everyone who sent us a card.
Finally the elevator doors opened revealing a crowd on the public transport. She pushed her way in and dragged her two kids and all her bags of stuff in with her. As the doors closed she couldn’t take it anymore and blurted out, “Whoever started this whole Christmas thing should be found, strung up, and shot.” From the back of the bus, a quiet, calm voice responded, “Don’t worry, we’ve already crucified Him.” The rest of the trip was so quiet you could of heard a pin drop.

Good day!!

It's been a fantastic day, scrapping-wise!! First I got an acceptance from Scrapbook Creations for one of my For Keeps elite entries, so was happy about that!!
Then found out I won one of the Scrapjacked prizes for last month............and here's my one for this month - of Sarah Van Wijck, of whom I'm a big fan anyway. This is a jack of her 'space' LO that was in FK a while back. (and this is just coincidentally a quick little frame I made for a christmas decoration - also inspired by Sarah!)
And...................apparently some people have got their Scrapbooking Memories Masters mags early and so the masters have been named BUT I got an honourable mention!! Yay me. Now, I have no idea which part of my entry this was for, and I was asked by a friend to put my entry on my blog - so here's a bit of it.
This is my single LO
Stay tuned for the rest...............

Long time, no see

It's been a while since blogger would let me post pics so now I can upload a few................
But a quick update on my life - Sharon (my sister) is coming tomorrow - I think, anyway. Just heard via the family grapevine that her plane didn't get in on Friday like it was supposed to. Nothing to worry about but didn't know, thats all - so don't know if that will delay her getting up here at all.
So that means Matt is leaving with her when she goes on Tuesday - he's been working up here on the station for a bit of a different view on life but don't think it's helped much!! Especially at the moment when there's not much work on.
Oh - and we're officially charity cases!! Due to the drought, all primary producers in this area are given a hamper of christmas goodies! So we got this massive bag of food, drink, christmas pudding, custard - and even christmas decorations and presents!! It feels funny to be in that position, but it IS actually really nice to know that someone cares that farmers are really struggling at the moment.
And the funniest thing is that Bradley has been shearing with a mate - who was given a christmas pudding from the church earlier - and so there has been no end of hassling about "at least he has a christmas pudding" and we have nothing!! So when we got the hamper I had to ring Bradley and go "Stop hassling Jumps - we got one too!!".
And apparently on the front page of the West Australian in the last couple of days there has been an article on how Christmas hams are being delivered to Morawa farmers - front page!! I bet Jumps gets one because he's been in the West a few times this year, with the hard time they are going through.
Anyway - thats me in a nutshell (doesn't that remind you of that Austin Powers line "No, THIS is me in a nutshell") School's finished so now we have 8 days of swimming lessons - perfect time for the cold weather to come in - it never fails!!LOL
Here's Madison's sports day earlier in the year (this LO is for her album in case you're wondering why I do some photos twice!!) And here's some LO's from the Dec Boy kit at Bon's - I seriously love this kit and might need to get anothery - LOL!!
This one is a LO of me trying to take a pic of Darcy but he was so excited that Santa gave him "Scoop" (from Bob the Builder) that that is all he would show me when I held up the camera
And this is of the girls when they went to Geraldton for a Playschool concert this year.
And these are the cards I made for all the kindy teachers
