Double LO me n Rob over the years....

Satin lined box taught by Emma at the retreat.
Went to the retreat at the Gold Coast from last Thursday to Sunday. Had a great time...met some lovely and very talented ladies!! Couldn't pull any all-nighters like some of them did, haven,t been able to do that for a lot of years!! Had plenty of laughs!! (Some of them were on me!! Apparently I'm a bit of a bed hog, sprawled out over most of the bed and poor Cass was sleeping on the side of the bed like a scared little rabbit!!) Got plenty of scrappin done considering my mojo has gone missing in action!! Did 7 layouts, one double and a lovely little satin lined box. Have still got a couple of pages to do that we didn't get time for, hope to do those soon. So that has boosted my yearly total up nicely! Have also done one LO for my class at Kathies, just gotta do another one. One set of ATC's for Feb and I'm caught up!
Guess what happened today?? Got a call from the Wang hospital...there was a cancellation for this Thursday, so they have brought Rob forward a week...he is in this Thursday....two sleeps to go!!!!!!! YAY!!! Then I think I'd better move into the spare room for a while until he recovers...otherwise I might cause him a bit of damage....LOL, I dont have any problems sleeping....just the poor buggar that has to sleep with me!! Thanks for stopping by....Pauly xx

Done this ATC for a swap at SCNC themed 'Romance'. The absolute only scrapping I have done since last post!! OMG, still searching for mojo..........

Got the bestest news yesterday!!!! WE GOT A DATE FOR ROB FOR HIS HIP REPLACEMENT!!!!!! March 4th. 16 more sleeps....bring it on!!!!! After lots of dissappointing phone calls, it just happened! Gonna be a long haul and poor buggar is packing his dacks but looking forward to being pain-free at long last. Prayin it all goes well. Two more sleeps before Cass and I go to the retreat on the Gold Coast. Speaking of which, I probably should go get some!! Cya for now...Pauly xx

Layout # 8 for 2010 and 3 ATC's

February Sketch challenge at Scraphappy Kats (PS. click on the photo to enlarge it and check out Cody crackin up laughing after he splashed Rob in the top photo, its so cute!!!)

Group shot of ATC's below.....

Magnolia ATC # 2

Magnolia ATC # 1

Magnolia ATC #3
Done these 3 ATC's for a challenge my sister (Vicmbee) put up at Debs Creations. I only set out to do 1 with a stamped image I got from Vic, but she was a tad too tall, even though it fits in the ATC pockets fine.....then the following day I got a suprise parcel in the mail and it was a couple of Magnolia stamps Vic had brought me for my birthday (Thanks Vic!!! ) from Bizzy Becs. So I had to have a play and colour and made the other two ATC's!! The layout of Rob and Cody is for Scraphappy Kats February Sketch challenge. Pop on over and check Kathies blog, believe me, she has fantastic prizes!! Only 6 more sleeps until Cass and I fly to the Gold Coast for the Scrappin Retreat at Broadbeach, getting a little excited here!!!! Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for stopping by. Pauly xx

Scrap N Art 'New Beginnings' Feb ATC. Chose Sharon being pregnant as another new beginning...Grandchild number 3 on the way......feeling OLD!!!

A sketch challenge over at Angies Scrap N Art for Feb.

A LO I did Friday night of Kaths at Scraphappy Kats. Took the pic from the front of work looking up the main street at 6am Thursday morning just gone. OMG the sky looked wicked!!!
Took off to Seymour Friday night for the first lesson back at Scraphappy Kats for 2010. Kath asked me would I be on her Design Team this year....got my first kit while I was over there and teach my first class next month...I am really nervous!! (Sorry Kath, can't help it!!) I dont think my mojo is back yet but I forced myself to do a LO today for ScrapNArts sketch challenge......played with my new inks and glimmermist (which never shows up in photos) and whacked on a bit of paint with a dry brush. Wasn't happy with the bright green, so tried to tone it down with some inks, is a tad better but too bad, its stuck there!! Got some great photos to scrap....I need mojo back with a vengance! Boys have gone over to Wilby today to the drag racing which didn't tickle my fancy...but I need to ride. So I'm off now to have some lunch and then jump on my Harley. Dunno where I'm going but I'm sure if I follow my nose I'll end up somewhere!! Cya later......Pauly xx
