Happy 30th Birthday Felicity

Saturday night was my little sisters 30th birthday party which I threw for her. I was a little disapointed that not a lot of people came but we had an awesome night.
Plenty of food, dancing and good times. Here are some shots from the night.

Busy little bumble bee

Financial year and OMG what a shocking time of year it is for me.

My busy time started yesturday and will go right through until the end of July but the only good thing about this time of year is TAX REFUND (as I rub my gready little hands together). If your anything like me you have a TAX TIME WISH LIST and this year my list is...
A holiday
A new Entertainment Unit
and a new computer (probably a lap top)
Well the holiday is booked and we are heading to Qld the 1st week of August. I've just got to book my flights this week and save some spending $$ and here we come. We will be there for a week and plan on going to Dreamworld, Movieworld and Australia Zoo. We went 4 years ago (yep my last real holiday) and we did all the parks and I needed a holiday to get over it. So this time we plan on spending some time for R'n'R and take in some sights. If all goes well when we get home we will hit the ski slopes and have a few days in the snow. It will be nice to switch off for a while I think.
Lets hope the Tax man is nice to me this year.
I have been planinng my sisters 30th birthday party for this weekend and I will be glad when I can get back to some normality. Balloons and cake ordered, food sorted, present done now, all I need now is people to come. Bloody family I tell ya!! but thats another story.
On the weekend I took photo's of my sisters family as she didnt have any recent photo's so here they are.

Friday night Julie Heard came down from Rocky and we had dinner. Julie, Ange and I went to Positano's in Hallam and oh yummy it was fantastic. Fantastic food, very fast service and a lovely night. Im just sorry that it was only the 3 of us and others couldn't come. It was great to see Julie again and catch up and she is looking amazing.

Saturday was crop day. Only 4 and yep disappointing again but the company was fantastic. Next month the crop will be on a Sunday, 19 July and the 1 and only Hetty Hall will be there as well as the Kaiser Q1 product samples and launch. While Hetty is here, we are going out for Indian on Saturday night. Pop on to the forum for more details and I would love to see you there.

Sunday was a run around day but I did manage to pop into Sharons for her stamping up party. Was good to catch up and I even got to see the cave and oh my lordy, this girl definetely doesnt need to buy another scrapbook product for the rest of her life but shhh!!! she is a great customer ;)...hehe

I have completed a couple of OTP products from the Kaiser Q1 release and will share soon. New stock should arrive any day now. If you would like a sneeky, PM me and i will try getting some images to you asap.

Until next time, stay safe and keep on scrapping.

up and down like a yoyo

Well its been a week of mixed emotions I tell you.
Back to work Tuesday after a long weekend isn't fun, and even though I had a day off I still wanted more.
I went to the dentist on Tuesday after a 7 year gap and I tell you I was very nervous on what he may have said, but I was in and out in 10 minutes with sparkly clean white teeth and an OK for the next 6 months and $125 less later. Wow arent they expensive.
Wednesday we were out for dinner with the X. It was pleasent and NO NO NO!!!! no reconsiliation, not on your life!!! so dont get started.
Thursday Suzie and I headed to Geelong for the Q1 launch at Kaiser. We got there early so we had dinner at a little Italian/Turkish resturant and it was delisious!!! So it was time to hit Kaiser. We were 2 little girls in a candy store. It was launch time and all I have to say is WOW!!! The designs and aditionals are so cleverly designed and to see them IRL compared to the mag has really got me excited. I hope it gets you all excited too. After rubbing shoulders with the owners, managers and designers it was time to go home, as we were walking out the door they handed us bags of goodies. I couldn't wait until i could dive in and we were blown away. We got the new collection.... Suzie and I are jumping up and down like little school girls squeeling with excitement. What an awesome night. I hope they do it more ofter cos I will be there!!!

Finally Friday and Blaine had correction day and I was off to work. After a hard day in the office I stayed with Mum and had chinese for dinner then off home for a very early night (for me anyway) cos I was so tired. Saturday morning was Auskick the grocery shopping, home for a few hours and the off to Camberwell for a Specialist Appt for Blaine. We got home late that night so was nice to get home.

I however did chuck a tanty on the site on Saturday, so for those who I may have upset, please except my apologies, it was never ment to offend anybody. I was just venting because I was so tired and felt that the amount of time I spend on the site and make it what i can to keep everybody happy doesnt seem to work... so yep this little black duck dove of the deep end!! I am sorry.

Today was house cleaning and my old mate 'flaps' finally came over with his girlfriend for 2 years to introduce her. Mind you I havent seen him in 5 years but we talk all the time. Was so good to see him and she is lovely. It was so good to see him so well especially after a major operation a little while ago moving cancer from his face. Nasty.

So here I am now. Wrapped in a towel after a hot bath. Im dying to get stuck into the new Kaiser stuff but i have a few things to do.

You may have read that I was in search of a 'Cybercrop Queen', well Saturday the Queen was crowned. Congratualtions to........................... (see post below)

Also a big congrats to Sandie for taking out the BUILD IT UP competition on the site.

Now here is an announcement you wont want to miss.

the 2009 DT call @ Scrapbook CAPITAL

Check out the forum for all the details.

Entries close 12 July 2009

Goodluck and take care until next time...

Queens birthday long weekend... yippee!!!

Don't you just love a long weekend? I do and it's lunch time and I am still in my PJ's.... and loving it...
It's been a busy couple of weeks balancing work, business and doctors appointments but we got through our 1st week and only 5 more weeks to get through with appointments and hopefully I can get a bit of normality back. Im hoping to take some holidays in August after the rush and chaos of the financial year so fingers crossed it all goes as planned. I haven't had a holiday in 4 years so really need 1 so I can kick back and relax. I really need to do a spring clean too so might take an extra week to plod around the house and clean out cupboards etc... Look out QLD cos I'm coming...
This weekend we are running our June cybercrop. The theme this month is MONOCHROMATIC. I have had a ball doing this crop and have completed all my challenges already which is a 1st for me in a very long time. There was 4 rounds, sketch, card, OTP and layout. The crop doesnt close until Friday so why not pop in here and check out the challenges for your chance to win a voucher.
Here are my 4 attempts. I chose BROWN to be my colour of attack.

1st is Hetty's layout challange - use an untraditional item - I used hesshian (sp?)
2nd is the sketch layout
3rd is Tracy's OTP gift box and
4th is Sharon's card using a flight animal and metal/bling.

A big Congrats to Anthea for winning the voucher for her entry for May sketch competition. Happy shopping Anthea and thanks to my mystery judge. Glad it was you deciding and not me...

OHHH and don't forget, I have paint and ink on special until Monday. 20% off already reduced prices.

So lets see, what's going on at SC. Well I have announced that I am in search of a Designer Team. More details soon so make sure you keep popping in for closing dates and requirements.

A voucher give away for new recruits and those who introduce them..... Wouldn't you like some free Scrapping goodies? Check it out here for more details.

June sketch is in the gallery and closes 30 June as well as the sign up for the July secret challenge. Cost you nothing except your imagination so why not join in for a little bit of fun.

I am also introducing "layout of the week". Each Monday I will select a random layout/OTP/ card from the gallery to be spotlighted. If your design is selected, I will post you a RAK for your efforts. All you have to do is scrap and uplaod in the gallery. Simple!!

I also have had feedback about the lack of comments left in the gallery, and some people arent uploading for this reason. Can I just say I appreciate every bodies time and effort and I love seeing your work in the gallery. I, like 99% of you love comments and feedback and try my hardest to comment on everybodies work. I know sometimes this is hard but I also believe do to others as you would want done to you. I guess it's the same as blogs. I do try and pop in at least once a week to read your blogs and when I read 99% of the time i will leave a comment. Same rule in my opininon. After all, we are all cyber sisters all here for the same reasons.... So as my wacky brother would say "WHERE"S THE LOVE?"

Next month I will run a blog comp... more details soon but let me tell you this involves you all and is going to be a bit of fun..... hehehe Im laughing already.

As for the gallery, I will make up a pack and award the person who I believe "SHARES THE LOVE" and leaves positive comments. You have until 30 June to "share the love" so come on, lets make our sisters smile.

Well I think I have bombarded you with enough at the moment so until next time, stay safe and keep on scrapping.
