Lost in Cyberspace?

Where are you all? Lost in Cyberspace? The site has been very quiet lately.... so quiet its been scary. Even last weekends cybercrop was like a ghost town with not chatting either... I must have BO or something.....
To get you back into the swing of things, a few new things are happining at Scrapbook Capital...
Tomorrow is the start of the "BUILD IT UP" competition ran by Sharon Lee. Sounds cery interesting and runs over 6 weeks. So why not check out the forum for more details.
2009 cybercrops are also changing a little. 'QUEEN OF THE CROP' will also be running from January for 6 months. All you have to do is take part in the cybercrop each month, receive points just for taking part and hopefully get enough points to win. More detaild about that a little closer to the January cybercrop. Dates for 2009 cybercrop will be up in the forum shortly.
November sketch is up in the forum and gallery and you still have a little over a week to get your entries in. Why not have a go... you never know what you will achieve, but 1 thing for certain is your page tally will increase.
December cybercrop has been changed to Friday December 5 due to the christmas hype that we all get subjected to. This is where we get to open our kris kringle pressies we get from the 'secret santa' on SC. Its a christmas theme so why not pop in for a chat, check out the challenges and have a go. The DT really put a lot of heart and soul into their challenges and examples so why not show your appreciation by joining in.
For those in Melbourne we are getting together on Friday 19 December @ Fountain Gate Hotel for a christmas dinner. If you would like to come, please email or PM me to reserve your spot and enjoy a xmas drink with a wonderful bunch of ladies.
On the home front, hmmm nothing at all. Got pretty sick last week with a sore throat, I think I was run down because not only did I feel terrible and slept for ever, I looked even worse. But hopefully over that now, just got to get over this 'no neck, rolly polly, aged looking phase'...If only that was as easy as taking a pill. I can only wish.
Blaine hasn't broken any more bones since last update which is a good thing. Just waiting on an appointment to have his arm checked and find out when we get his plaster off. Cheeky chook has worked out how to shove pencils down his cast to scratch and nothing I say will stop him.
Ohh the only exciting thing Ive done in the last 2 weeks is I brought a new 7ft xmas tree and decorations. All I need to do now is get it off layby and put it up. Highly exciting life hey...NOT!!
Well I think I have bored you enough so after all of that its time for me to say bye... keep on

This is Blaines 1st ever layout, not bad hey!!! and my 1st layout in months. It was Octobers sketch, a month late but done anyway...

Blaine writing his 'dear Santa' letter, and like spunky trunks....
and just a little early Christmas present for you all.......

November already...

So sorry for not updating before now but wow have I been busy... All the usual dealings in a ordinary life going on here. We went on a beach picnic with Michele and her family. Blaine and I started walking every night and trying to teach Blaine how to ride without training wheels. He is down to 1 but we haven't been walking since the retreat. Best I get my but into gear and get started again. We have new neighbours. They are so lovely. I take her youngest to school everyday and pick him up but they are a great bunch of people. They even got out over the park last week and got the kids on their motorbikes for a ride. Was such a lovely day and was great to see the neighbourhood really getting envolved. Even have a school family with 6 kids that come and play and always need an extra for cricket. it's a shame I haven't won lotto yet so I can buy my own place in this estate. Here are some pics to play catch up.

Well Scrap Cap had their 1st retreat and it was brilliant, even if I do say so myself. The ladies were so beautiful IRL and were a great bunch to play with for a weekend. Plenty of alcohol for this little black duck but gosh I had a great time. The PJ party was heaps of fun and Nina's belly dance was amazing. I even got up to have a go and it was soooo hard. There was a few ladies that got into fancy dress and they looked amazing and my hat goes off to them all. Check out Sammi, Michele, Jax, Sharon, Nina and Lyndall in the photo below. I am now counting down until Scrap Cap retreat 2!!! I'm sure it will be bgger and better than this years. I am very proud to announce that we at the retreat raised $500.00 to go to Narre Warren SES in the memroy of my Dad. I am so proud of you all and thank you for supporting a caused that means so much to me... Big hugs and kisses to each and every one of you that donated in some kind of way. xoxoxoxox

I finally start getting back to a so called normal life and my little nit wit decides to climb a fence last night and falls straight over the top and falls 6 feet onto the ground. He seemed to be ok after he settled down but a very different story today. My poor little frog is in a cast with a fracture to the wrist. Hopefully it heals well and he will be out of it in 3 weeks. Today has really taken its toll so hoping for better days tomorrow.

Well thats enough from me right now. Don't forget Novembers Cybercrop is on this Friday at 7.30. Come and join in with some chat and a few laughs. A new comp will be starting very soon as well as a blog hopper comp too so keep your eye's peeled for that 1!!! Until next time, keep on chatting and take
