Heres the other three

Heres the other three, I have just learnt blogger only allows five photos per post!!

8 new layouts!!

The last two Friday nights Cass and I have been over to Seymour to Kathies to attend her crop nights and classes. These layouts are all from Kathies kits and we still have plenty left over!! We really enjoyed Kathies nights and sure we will do plenty more! The drive home this time was a lot clearer than last week...the only bit of fog was in Bonnie Doon. Both weeks we have missed our regular Saturday night scrapping nights as we were too buggared! But we got a lot more done at Kathies than we normally do!! Thanx heaps Kathie, you are wonderful!!

I spent yesterday cleaning house and then cleaning up rest of 'stuff' from last weekend. The Harleys finally have there home back and they are sooo happy and so am I!! Trimmed back all my standard roses. Just a little bit more to clean up next weekend and then our home is back to normal! Yay! Rob is tickled pink with his new shed and loves his new toy! I had to watch last night while he tackled a big tyre that he had been belting and bashing for four hours over a week or so....took five minutes on the new machine!!! Its gonna save his body big time!!! Thanks for stopping by....Pauly xx

I'm still here!!

Robs new toy!!! Pretty exciting hey!!

Debs June Master Blaster Challenge

Uproar 'bird' ATC June swap.

Hello, hello, feels like I haven't blogged forever!!! Been busy moving our business from home to our new shed! Hooray, we are in. Moved on the weekend and boy it was hard work. I didn't buy enough tyre racks, so got some more yesterday and we filled those last night. Rob got his new toy today and he is still up at the 'new shed' playing with it! Next suggestion he has come up with is a hoist....more jacks......list goes on.
On the scrappy side of things, well not much! Only have two things to show for two weeks away.
One is my bird ATC, not one of my favourite ATC's I have done, but OK I guess. I used Cuttlebug embossing folder, inks, chalks, glitz and flower brads. My next theme for a swap at Debs is 'music'. I have a few ideas in my head, just hoping I can make some more time!! The other LO is for Debs Master Blaster challenge. It is a 'geometrical ' LO which I found real handy for using multiple photos, and then we had to do a sketch of our LO too. (I'm hiding that from blogworld!)
Last Friday night Cass and I took off to Seymour to one of Kathies (Scraphappy Cat)
crop nights. Finally got to meet the lovely Kathie, it was a good night and we are definately going back! (Maybe tomorrow night, lol) She has fantastic kits for fantastic prices and we got a sneak peek at her kits for this week and I'm in love! Really hoping Lexie comes up to Kaths for a session as I'd really love to meet her too (hint, hint Lex!!)
Uproar2scrapmore are having a cybercrop this weekend....come on over and join the fun!!
Until next time lovely peoples...(not as long this time I hope...) Pauly xx

Debs Negative Space LO of favourite animal

Lisas DT challenge at Debs. Scrap a Challenge Chic! with journalling and handmade flowers.

Debs 12 x 6 Layout of favourite singer. Don't have one favourite, but chose one of... Have never done a 12 x 6 layout, so it was a bit of a challenge!

Family & Friends June ATC swap. Theme - 'Ocean Life'

Mini Rak challenge at Uproar (where everyone is sent the same little pack and you make a card using all the stuff in the kit!) Love to see how different they all turn out.

Well another weekend gone!! Friday night 10 of us travelled to Shepparton to see a Chopper Reid show. I was bitterly disappointed, it was crap! Saturday I spent two hours at the hairdressers covering those pesky little greys....just got the usual black underneath with burgundy on top. Bit of housework and scrapped a few challenges. Today I was gonna get stuck into the challenges for the cybercrop at Ready, Set, Scrap but it didn't happen. We went to Albury ten-pin bowling with Tack and Brooke and Krystal took a friend too. Rob returned his broken GPS to Tandy that he got for Xmas and wasn't real impressed when they told him they would send it away to be fixed and it could take four weeks!!!
SHED NEWS.....woohoo, we move in next weekend!! They poured the concrete on Friday, so we can move in Wednesday, but we decided to do it on the weekend. We just hope the power is on by then because the truck tyre changer is being delivered and installed on Saturday and the guy is going to show us how to use it, so we kinda need power! Might pop up a few nights through the week and start putting up the racks etc. (providing we have power once again!) Gonna be a HUGE move, so I doubt I will get any scrapping done next weekend! But it will be fantastic once we are there!!!!! Thanks for stopping by. Catch ya soon...Pauly xx

Silly season is here!

Took this this arvo from the front of home at 5.15pm. Got 17cm of snow last night, so we now have an average cover of just over half a metre! Wow. Not bad considering our first hit of snow was Saturday night, just on time for the opening weekend. Hope to get a better pic after work tomorrow as it is meant to be sunny temp. of 9, but sunny. So 'silly season' is officially here. I feel tired thinking about it!! Catch ya soon. Pauly xx

This was taken on 28th May...shire permit through!!!

Taken 1st May, woohoo walls and a door!!

Yesterdays fun!
4 loads. Wood splitter is a blessing!!

My one and only LO for the weekend! A online collage class run by Deb at Debs Challenge Chics. My first go at collage. This week Deb is doing a boy collage class, and then maybe I'll be confident enough to have a go myself!!
As you can see we had to get wood yesterday. We got 4 loads in one hit. Three trays and our trailer. Took us two hours out there to cut and load and we split it when we got home. Those wood splitters are 'Ants Pants'!!! OMG, I can't ever remember being this sore!!!!!!!!!! Muscles aching that I didn't even know I had!!
Finally getting some progress with our shed, will be a blessing when we finally get in there. Truck tyre changer and racks are organised and paid for. We just have to give the suppliers a hoy when the shed is done. Hopefully next week (fingers crossed). Since the last photo, we have a roof, a side door and two sliding doors. Power and phone has been done ( I think...) I think all we need now is the concrete!! YAY!!
Weather is cold, wet and miserable! Top temperature forecast for this week is 9 degrees. Wow.
I believe there is a fair whack of snow on our mountain and it is forecast to snow down to 900mtrs tonight. I worked today and it was quiet in the morning until about 11am and then BANG!, we were flat knacker for the rest! Went down so well with the aching bones!
OK, enough rambling for one day...Thanks for stopping by. Take Care...Pauly xx
