KSK Monthly Sketch

Now I'm not just saying it, but I really love this sketch by Kim Allard and can see myself using it again! If you want to do a LO using this sketch, just head on over to Karen's Scrappin Kupboard and upload before the end of July and you could win a $20 voucher (and man, is there some FUN stuff over there you could spend your $20 on!!) Here's my LO using the sketch - one about Darcy loving Bob the Builder, but when you ask who he is - he isn't just "bob the builder", he's "Darcy the Bob the Builder". And talking of the funny things kids say, we had a roast for tea and Madison was horrified that we were horrified we were having "gross potatoes" with it!!LOL (I had to repeat 'roast potatoes' before she realised!!LOL)
And here's a card.........did I really need to explain that??lol
And another LO done using a sketch - a bit more grungy than I usually do, but thats ok - I can deal with that.........
Oh, and anothery - a very simple LO of the bubble blower things the girls got for christmas which were SO uch fun!! You probably can't really see the bubbles in these pics but there were just millions of them.
And a big congrats to Anna who won the BONanza - so well-deserved and I loved seeing so much of your work in the gallery - YOU ROCK, chicky!!

Now a quick update on my life - Bradley went to hospital again last week after having a vomiting virus for about 48 hours and then tonsilitis kicked in - how fun does that sound?? So he spent 2 nights in the brand new hospital, which personally I think he just wanted to check out as it had only been opened the week before!!LOL

The kids are now on holidays - YAY - no more trips to the bus but it does mean I have to be a bit more 'fun' during the day. We painted on sunday, went to Nanas yesterday for a visit and then made chocolate lamingtons today. And don't we all know how the "entertainment" time of such a cake-making event is inversely proportional to the "mum gets to clean up" time - so now I deserve to sit down with my coffee and catch up on blog-reading!!

We are going to Geraldton at the end of the week to catch up with friends that we haven't seen for ages which will be nice - that and the chinese food we are going to eat YYUUUUUMMM!! And we are going to take the kids to see Kung Fu Panda which I've heard good things about. And on Friday I get to go to the dentist - what a fun-filled trip!! I just need to get my moles checked and get a papsmear and it would make the day complete!!LOL

Anyway, enough drivel...............bye
