Is anyone interested........... either of these games.
They were purchased about 2 months ago and coby is just not into them.

Great games i don't understand why he just likes what he like i guess......
They are in perfect condition each has seriously been played only about 3 times.

I was thinking $30 each with free postage the dora one was bought for $50 and the chipmunks one was Bought for $60. Email me at if you are interested.
How are your school holidays so far? I have the first week off and the first day has been great. We went swimming today, morning t at nic's tomorrow and disney on ice on friday. Im hoping to get a bit of a sleep in on a few of these days too.
Great news on the Puppy front but ill share that next post.

Hi everyone

The Past few weeks have been pretty busy with the debling weekend away and well just life being life everyone i know seems to be busy and the miserable winter weather is making it so much harder to get motivated!
Chris and I went to My nephew Matty's 50th Footy game the other week. It was a freezing Cold Foggy day.

Matty next to his banner with his Dad his Pa and Baliley...coby is there with his head behind the banner.

Here is matty at 1/2 is his hair!
Coby and Bailey.
i went to the movies on sat. I took coby and bailey to see an advance screening of Kung Foo have to go see it especially if like me you LOVE jack black. It was so funny and there was absolutely NO boring bits. Other than that my weekend has been really laid back...gotta love quiet weekends.

I have been looking very closely at getting one of these bags for my camera you can find them here.

You can purchase different Flaps so you can change the look of your bag and also purchase matching camera straps. They have the most amazing fabrics so you can make the bag really suit your personal style!

Here is what it looks like inside. Enough space for a purse, keys, phone and a spare lens. LOVE IT it will be definitely be put in the NEED category....confused? see previous post!:)

Have a look here i have posted a new LO using my fave Buzz and Bloom chip alpha 'That 70's Alpha' Here are some sneak peeks.

Cobys new are one thing i do splurge on for coby i like him to have skate shoes they are more expensive but they are so cool and they wear so well....if they get dirty i just put them in the washing machine with towels and they come up new. These are so cool i had them ordered in especially from the local surf shop.
That's all for today Ill post some Photos form my drunken singstar night with the girls next time.

What a great weekend

WOW Did i scrap.......

I also ate too much laughed a lot and had an amazingly relaxing weekend.

Here are some pages that i scrapped.
This is the first Page i scrapped for the weekend

I love this pic of coby and i and im so pleased with the way that the page turned out.

I have found myself scrapping differently lately, earthy tones and simple pages that don't take away from the photos. Im loving these SEI Dill blossom papers

I love this shot i Got of Pip and the Dog next door through the back fence. I had a mini photo shoot with pip 3 days before we had her put down and im glad that i captured this shot as she always had her nose through the fence to see what the puppy next door was doing.

This Page of steel is so simple but it is exactly how i wanted it to look. Im loving the MM jack and ella collections at the moment. Im also in love with these collections owls so fun to cover.I actually scrapped this page the week before i left for the retreat, Baby Steel's album is coming along nicely.

I have had this idea to scrap this shot of coby using the love elsie papers for a while now but hadn't got around to it. It was a quick page to scrap but i love it.This is one of my fave pages for the weekend. I got a bit deep with the journaling which is why i think it has taken me so long to actually scrap this photo. Another Collections them...well i actually love covering chipboard and layering it at the moment. I purchased this ribbon on the weekend (green vine looking thing) and im so in love with it. I need more in different colours.


"I'm not sure how much coby remembers about his grannie annie. He was only 2 when she passed away.He often talks about her and seems to remember her through the things that she has bought him. He also talk about her being a star in the sky especially when it is a clear night sky and the stars are out. He talks about how Pippa is keeping her lap warm up in the sky. Most of all coby remembers his granny annie when he puts on the scarf she made him. I remember this exact night when i went into cobys bedroom and there he was sound asleep with his scraf around his neck.It upsets me that Coby won't get to grow up knowing his grannie annie but it is great that her remembers her through there special items."

One thing that i realised over the weekend is that i need more ink pads, it is so much easier to ink chipboard than paint it i seriously didn't paint anything all weekend. Credits go to Vicky and Jody for letting me use their inks all weekend.

There are a few more pages that i scrapped but ill leave them for another time as they will be posted on the BUZZ AND BLOOM SITE SOON

Thanks for stopping by

Welcome Baby Ella Anne

She is sooo sweet and sooo tiny

Hailey my cousin is going very well.

It seems to bring back so many memories about having a newborn that you forget about or erase. :)

I remember Coby being such a hard baby to settle, such a terrible sleeper, i remember hating breast feeding, i remember just sitting staring at him, i remember having to manage every single minure effectively so i could take every opportunity to rest,i remember holding him so tight in my arms and never wanting to let him go.

It is so hard adjusting to life as a new mum especially a first mum.......driving blind. Just hope i can help her when she need it.

I made this sign for Hailey to display at her window if Ella and her are resting and don't want to be bothered.

My sister and I seem to be doing all of te bothering though!
