A Moment in Time

I have Loved this Photo of My Beautiful Little Niece since I took it. The Day, her Mum's 30th Birthday (Sept 2007), we went for a walk to the Park and water( actually their backyard)..and this was the result.I have never done a Layout with such a large photo...after alot of deliberation and stress ..Im so Happy with the result.


I haven't written for awhile as I have been busy..enjoying Holidays spending time with family and scrapping..just relaxing. But have good news..after a few attempts I recieved an email from Scrapbook Memories and they have requested one of my Layouts for an upcoming excited as this will be my first..New Years Resolution No. 5 up and running. I did lots of Layouts over the break which was fantastic. Sunday the 13th Jan went to the Beach with Family. "I " loved the water after abit of the point that he didn't want to get out,BLUE LIPS clear indication that we had to. Little "K" was so tied that she had a Lovely long nap. Great way to finish up the Holidays. First class for the New Year was great catching up with some of the Customers.Another thing Ive been busy with is New home for Layouts etc..what a great site..Ive had lots of lovely feedback..but the best part about it is that there are so many great scrappers there..Layouts are amazing... great source of inspiration

Love That Smile

Today marks a Big day, Both of My Munchkins went to Preschool.I called later in the evening, "K" had already gone to sleep and " I" was so very tied, he told me he didn't want to come home. My sister-in-law "N" said that they had had a great day, were really good and had enjoyed it. Wish they didn't have to grow up so fast.

Why Blog?

For ages I couldn't understand why People used the internet as an online diary...and I succumbed... butI'm glad I did... It will help me keep tabs on the products that Ive friends and family will be able to view my Layouts here...So Blogging! Thats WHY..

Basic Grey Toots ...and My First

Uploads, Photos and Layouts

Well after alot time spent organising my photos I chose which ones I wanted for some completed Layouts that I did when I went to Carols for the weekend. On her blog she started chatting about the differences in our scrapping. Funny enough we are both attracted to the same Layouts but everything deviates from there. I do layouts without photos, she can't. I love to have music or noise, she doesn't, I chat while Carol zones out. Carol can scrap/create with people around , I need to be on my own. My Layouts can take up to a day to complete where as she usually finishes in 2 hrs. Thats the start of our differences. I love her work, she has taught so much, and finally Carol is begining to realise what a talent she is.

I'm slowly navigating my way around the site, feel like a complete novice, but will get there eventually. Spent the day shoppimg with my two Munchkins, I and K. Love every minute I spend with them. New Years Resolutions....... Well ...... Contentment, Strength, Love, Faith, Patience, Hope, Joy, Fortitude, Creativity, Understanding, Health. I think that covers alot so if I get half way through the list I would have achieved something. Got alot of photos to organise... so here goes.

January 1st 2008

A New Year, A New Start and alot to look forward to.

“A Return to Love”
Our deepest fear,
Is not that we are inadequate
Our Deepest fear is that
we are Powerful beyond measure,
It is our light, not our darkness,
that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant,
Gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are we NOT to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There is nothing enlightening about shrinking
So that other people won’t feel insecure around YOU.
We are born to make manifest
the Glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just within some of us,
It’s in everyone!
And as we let our own light shine,
We unconsciously give other people
Permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others!

I saw this on a dear friends website
and felt empowered by it,
Thanks Sarah, You Rock.
