Back from Australia....

Hi all,

Well Josh & I arrived back from Australia today. It was a quick trip I mean we left here on Thursday spent 39 hours in transit then had 5 days at home then another 32 hrs in transit. Are we tired you may ask? We are buggered!!! We got back to our house about 10am today and I've just woke up and it's midnight I think, so it's going to take the weekend to get me back into a normal sleeping pattern.

It was great to catch up with our family and friends. I even spent a night scrapping with my dear friend Carole It was great we scraped from 8pm till 3am and I got only 1 page done and well Carole she cut out some flowers! lol we had way too much to chat about. It was just so great to catch up.

I have some amazing news there is a contest here in England called Scrapbooker Of The Year I have entered the competition and have made the top 20! I'm over the moon and it all comes down to a public vote which I think is a great idea! It's the same as the Masters. If you would like to vote Click to open the Voting Form

This is the page that is featured as my entry

It is number 2 ‘Cutie’ By Lauren Rhodes Chatham

If you would like to vote for any of the entries just follow the links on the page. You can only vote once and it doesn’t matter what country you live in. Oh a big thanks to the lovely Pam who got the message through to me that I made the top 20 as I was still in Oz. I haven’t had the chance to pick up the magazine yet but it’s on my list to do tomorrow. (The ever growing one) Honestly why does the fridge not re stock it’s self???? The joys of coming home from a holiday to no bread no milk and as Josh would put it NO FOOD!! ROFL!

I plan on scrapping most of my weekend as my parents bought Josh & I iPods for Christmas so he will be gadget shopping and playing most of the weekend! Lol

I have some pages that I will share with you but I have to put on the finishing touches. Plus I have to go check what the pencil lines sketch is as I’m hooked!

A huge thaks to all that stop by my blog I love to share what is going on in my world with you all and I’m glad that we have such a great online community keeping it positive, supporting and encouraging each other.

Have a great weekend.
