How awesome is this cake!!!

This is the cake my sister and her husband made (yes they made it from scratch!!!) for my neice for her first birthday party today. It looked so cool. And here is a close up of the frog and hippo:

Great job guys it looked awesome!!!! The party was great and Charlotte (my neice) had a great time, not that she really knew what was going on, but I am sure she will next year!!

Have not done much scrapping lately but I did make a card for charlotte which I will share tomorrow if I get time :)

Oh I did get to play with my new camera at the party but only on auto. I have no idea how to use all the other settings yet but I am sure I will learn someday lol.

Hope you all had a nice relaxing weekend.

Catch ya soon :)

Been busy...

Well yesterday Madison had her first school sports day. It was a good day she had a great time but it was rather hot luckily it finished at 1pm. Here are some photos of her in action:
The egg and spoon race:

And the sack race:

It was hot again today so I took the kiddies for a swim and then we enjoyed an ice cream. As you can see by the photos I think Jessica really enjoyed hers:-

I also got a new camera today!!! A Sony A350 DSLR!!! Very excited but as yet have not had a chance to play but hopefully tomorrow.

Well must go I have to make a birthday card for my neices party tomorrow.

Hope you all are having a great weekend!!

Catch ya soon :)

Hello :)

Not much happening here. Kiddies have been for another swim (will post photos tomorrow when I get time). I have finally got back into walking. My friend and I walked last night and again tonight. Hopefully it will help me lose some weight.

Have not done much scrapping. Still working on my double page layout but hopefully tomorrow I will get it finished then post a photo. Also have to get the rest of my stuff together for a fantastic online class I am doing on Wednesday night here run be the gorgeous Kirsty :) Kirsty's work is simply stunning!!! So I am very excited to be doing a class run by her :) We are making a christmas count down calender thingy which the kids will absolutley love. If you have time pop on over and join in.

Thats it for now. Hopefully tomorrow I will get time to upload some photos and maybe show off my chocolate chip cookies (if they turn out okay!)

Hope you are all having a great week.
Catch ya soon :)

We survived!!

We survived the first week back at school! Mostly good with a few tantrums!! The kids even got to go for a swim today in the pool:-
Ben was a bit cold but the kids had a great time. (the water was 24c)
And here is a photo of my little Jessiebear! She NEVER looks at the camera for me so this one is a bonus even if it is a bad photo!!

Hope you are all having a great week.

Catch ya soon :)
