Just wanted to share one of my fave songs from one of the American Idol contestants who has now been pipped out but I saw him on Ellen Degeneres' show a couple of weeks ago and immediately loved it.
What do you think?

It was a family affair for dinner and then the young ones started to roll in - or should I say stumble in - some of them anyway.
We were heading out to the car and 3 cards pulled up and out piled the young ones - some had already had a few to drink we think - and loud. What is it with kids these days and having to YELL everything that they say?
They all looked like they were having fun that's for sure. It was only 8.30 when we left and the music was pumped right up.................goodness knows how the rest of the night will end up........LOL. Oh to be young again............NO thanks!!!!!
Now that's some serious talkin goin on!!!!!
Thanks to all who drop in visit and comment. It really makes me happy and keeps me smiling!!!!!
I am going to have a little giveaway - just leave me a comment to this post and I will draw a winner.

I made an appointment with the Podiatrist - they said I am in a bad way at the moment but things can be done. I cannot wait to get some custom orthodics made as I am not sleeping with aches and pains and can't walk. The Podiatrist explained what was going on and that I should just take it easy for a while.
Fingers crossed things will improve for me soon and I will be able to walk without pain.
Thanks for listening.
I actually tasted my first mud scone at Bakers Delight and thought "I must be able to make these" - so I did!!!!!
If you attempt them, pop back in and let me know what you think and if you altered the recipe to make it that little bit better.
It will be a good move for them I think - but we are sure going to miss those adorable little faces. I have grown so close to them - I think it had to do with helping Medina with her first pregnancy and then helping to deliver those precious bubs into the world. We are truly blessed.
I wish them all the very best as they start on their next journey.
Luv you guys.
How's Sean's look - he just used some ash to give him "the" look. He looks like someone out of Underbelly. LOL!!!

Righto - "f" is for the following
flowers, friendship, fabric, feathers, frills, fairies, fathers day, fruit, felt, flags.
Go for it - create a card, otp, layout etc and just leave me a link here.
I had such a busy weekend that I haven't had a chance to have a go myself - I have ideas for a card so that is a start. Will pop back in here with my creation when I get a chance.
Happy Creating everyone!!!!!
Hope all is well in your part of the world.

ALL day yesterday I walked my poor old feet off in search of the perfect outfits for both of us - nothing like leaving things til the last minute!!!!! I'm a big shocker.
Sean's mum and dad are looking after the kids for us which is nice. It's not very often that we get a chance to do our own thing so it will be an extra treat.
I've gone for the good old mission brown look and loads and loads of jewellery - oh and heaps of makeup. I also have a long black wig.
Hopefully it will be a great night.
Bought some lovely things - all bargains of course!!!!!! Plenty of bargains to be had too. If you are in the area be sure to go - you wont be disappointed.
My work was on display at Alison Ellis Designs too - they have a new party range of pp out now and its got cupcakes on it - so it was extra special getting to work with this range.
Leslie from Little Bits Keysbourough was there - I whispered to her "where's the other half of you?" She looks amazing - she said she has lost 60kilos. I couldn't believe it - she looks amazing!!!!
Caught up with my mates Vicky and Lyn - great to see you girlies. How did you finish up? Buy up big????????
All in all a very happy day!!!

I had an extra busy day Friday creating Mothers Day Cards for the local florist - nothing like leaving things to the last minute!!!!!! I managed to make some cards using the said scraps from my desk. Even some of the smallest pieces I simply couldn’t bear to throw out came in handy.
It really is amazing and a great challenge to see what you can come up with.
A couple of the cards – the ones with the heart punches and cuttelbug embossing were inspired by Jennifer McGuire.
Thanks for looking – keep watching for more scrappy cards.
Remember – the rules are – there are NO rules!!!!!! You know when I look back over my cards - there is always a certain style that pops up again and again - but you know what - if it works - go for it!!!!!

Happy creating everyone!!!!!!!!.

Hope you have had a great day - I know I have.
First up I recieved my lovely pressies from the kids - and a cuppa in bed with my new mug - yummy!!!!!
Then we all got up and had breakfast together and then headed off to Josh's footy match. His team won which was fantastic and it was a really good competitive game.
We didn't get home til just after 2 o'clock which was late. We had lunch together and then popped around to Sean's folks to say Happy Mothers Day there - stopped for a quick cuppa and then headed back home again.
We started to tidy up the backyard from the concreting that we had done. There's lots of bits and pieces of concrete and junk on the ground so we got to with our buckets and picked them all up. Then we started to work out how we were going to get the big tree stump into the trailer - it took some work I tell ya!!!! Don't think I'll be able to move tomorrow......LOL.
Off to do some creating me thinks.
All in all a great day. Hope yours was a good one.

So I have added some "Labels" which will just mean clicking on "cards" for instance to take you straight to "my cards".
I have just been through over 300 of my posts to add labels - and I have about 700 to go. You can't rush these things.............LOL. Slowly but surely.
Should really go to bed I suppose.
Have a great sleep everyone.

Busy, busy day today.
Firstly I am catching up with a friend in need for a cuppa then I am heading off to Josh's school for a Mothers Day Luncheon - 3 course meal and then tonight we are all going out to dinner to celebrate Sean's 40th. Gosh how am I going to fit all of that in? I don't know. More importantly how am I going to fit all of that food in....................LOL!!! I'm sure I'll manage.............LOL.
The kids all made Sean a card which was gorgeous - Josh included a little poem
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Mum is 40
And so are you!!!!!
Funny kid!!!! And oh so true.
Well that's it from me. I had better go and get ready for my first of many things on the "to do" list.
Have a great day everyone - whatever you get up to.
(P.S. gosh its great having my computer back - its just like new)
What was supposed to be done in only 2 days has turned into 2 weeks - the much needed rain decided to come, of course, as soon as we dug up the old concrete. What was underneath was so, so wet due to the existing concrete being cracked the weather got in under that and it was so gluggy it needed time to dry out. Of course, we had extra rain didn't we - LOL!!!!
It's been done in steps - the first step was the pergola area - the kids have been using that to play on already - they love it. They have been so used to NOT playing on the existing concrete under the carport as it has been so chopped up.
Today the carport is being poured - just now actually. I have been sitting in my car for the last 10 minutes after dropping the kids off to school. When I got back I couldn't even get in the drive way. I eyed off the side fence to see if I could jump over that way - thinking they could be there for ages, and then thought the better of it................we could have ended up needing an ambulance........LOL. I could just picture me either half over the fence - stuck, or on the other side of the fence with injuries - this is while blokes were laying concrete - NO the thought was all too much........LOL.
So in a few days we will be able to drive back under cover and then make a start, hopefully, on the pergola. Can't wait. We are ALL so excited.
