ATC, collage & blind challenge.

This is Tack on his 18th birthday with a drinking helmet someone gave him. It held two cans on top and you drink from the straws! The layout is one of Debs online collage classes. This is my third collage class and I love them. You wouldn't believe the hours that go into these collages!! Thanks Deb, whens the next one?? LOL.

This one is my grandson Lucas last weekend in the car on the way home from Batlow. What a dude!! Little man is one tomorrow!! This is his last monthly page for his album I made for his birthday. I done the same for Cody. They have a layout for each month from birth to one and now I will do a page every birthday until whenever. Then when they are 21 its all done!! Instead of trying to do a complete album at 21 like I did with my children. Tack is still waiting and he is nearly 22!! The layout was done for Uproars new challenge blog U2S. (Vickis Blind challenge.)

This ATC is for a little local swap. It was my turn to pick a theme and I chose 'white on white' The same as the challenge I set for the challenge chics cybercrop a few weeks back ...and the entries were stunning!! Pretty amazing how many shades of white there is!! Well thats it for me this weekend, I have to get off here and do accounts and statements....a day early but its way to hard to do them on a week night. End of month should only ever fall on a weekend so I can cope!!! LOL. Thanks for stopping by Pauly xxx

Another night at Scraphappy Cats (Kathies) last night and we had a class with Trudi Harrison. Absolutely loved Trudis class...LOTS of handcutting and layering...and a cute little OTP gift bag and card. We didn't finish until after one oclock and I was way too tired to drive home...thank you so much Kathie and Peter for your hospitality and girls for your beds. Fantastic brekkie thanks Peter and good coffee thanks Kathie!!!

Challenge Chics Cyber Crop

This one wasn't part of the was an online class of Debs. Thanks Deb, I love it!!

This one of Phillip was for the challenge I set - 'white on white'. Been trying for years to scrap one of Phillip, it finally fell into place with white being so 'heavenly'.

This one was for Karinas sketch challenge. I used some of my Rose Moka papers I've had for a while. Turned out quite 'colourful'!

This one was for Vickis mini album challenge. Re-did the front cover to fit in with her requirements and finished off with more pages.

This one was for Amandas quote challenge -"Dream dreams that no-one dared dream before." My Tack looks so young and innocent here!! LOL, he's not!! Used some leftover bits from Debs online class layout.

Well, that was a mega-productive weekend for me!! Joined in on the Challenge Chics Cybercrop (link on my sidebar) and I have all the challenges done but one. We have until Wednesday to upload entries so I may get the last challenge done?? Games were fun too! I missed out on Bingo Saturday night as we went out to tea with Cass and Paul and had to wait over an hour and a half to get our meals Grrr! and they weren't that flash when we finally did get them!! I got eight layouts done, two cards and finished off a mini album for a workmate that has been sitting unfinished for months. AND got all the housework done AND all the bookwork! Hit invoice number 2000 today! Not bad for a one-man band! Gee my hubby works hard!! Shall upload my Sweeties entries maybe tomorrow night (if I not too exhausted from work) Ahh, back to work fulltime tomorrow! Ruined my track record of one sick day in ten and half years now!! Ah well, I must be getting old!! Thanks for stopping by....until next time....Pauly xx

Gotta love Webster pages!!

August 'Shabby Chic' ATC swap at the Challenge Chics

'Hearts' Aug Batlow swap.

I brought myself some gorgeous Webster pages probably about 6 -8 months ago and haven't been game enough to use them cos they are so pretty!! I didn't wanna ruin them!! Anyway I got real game and scrapped a photo of my cousin and her family, such a lovely family portrait I stole of Facebook! Got some great ones of her sisters birthday party that I wanna scrap too. Hanging to see my cousins that I haven't seen forever! Thinking about riding our Harleys over in October when Krystal is over in Malaysia. Either that or jump on a plane to Queensland....still deciding as I wanna do both but not enough time!!
Just been up to the Osteopath and she tells me she has put everything back where it should be....may be sore for a couple of days. So much better than over the weekend!!! Woohoo!!
Better be off...Thanks for stopping by Pauly xx
PS. Check out my Star Cafe link on my sidebar....Just click on the logo...can't wait till our new shop is done!!!

Not the best weekend ever!

Coffee anyone????

A LO of our little Cody, using my Guest DT pack from Uproar to Scrapmore. Yes, I am on the guest design team member for August.Will post details of Cybercrop soon!!

Scraphappy ATC Swap - 'Farmyard Animals '

Family & Friends Aug ATC Swap - 'Buttons & Lace'

Uproars Aug ATC Swap - 'A splash of colour'

Would put this one down as not one of my best weekends ever...OUCH!! Knocked off work absolutely exhausted Friday....asleep in my recliner by about 8pm...woke up at 3am and crawled to bed.....up at 9am with a bit of a sore back...........spent the whole morning doing accounts, statements and 'end of month' stuff....met MIL and Al for lunch at the Witches Brew, sat there for a couple of hours until I couldn't sit no more...pottered around the house whining that my back was sore and it just kept getting sorer by the minute. Cass came up to scrap as usual, but I just finished off some ATC's that I nearly had completed anyway and I had to leave her at the table by herself cos I was really startin to hurt and was havin trouble sitting, walking and existing! Took one of Robs voltarins and went to bed...kept waking up bellowing in pain..OMG! By Sunday morning I could hardly move and decided Rob better take me up to Casualty at the hospital. A nurse gave me an injection in the butt and four and a half hours later..........finally see a Doctor!! She tells me I have typical sciatica, take these drugs, and take a week off work and R&R. Well here I am, bored outa my brain! Can't just lay around! Can do a bit of scrappin, but can't sit too long. Bit sore today, but don't ever want it to get as bad as it was Sat/ Sun before that injection!!! Enough whinging for today, sorry peoples! Might be off to wander around some more.... Paulyxx
