This is a very special LO that I have put together. My sister and I lost my Dad 4 years ago and I have not been able to do a LO of him yet... I pick up his photo every week and look at him and put them back down. I did have the courage mind you this week to do this.

Each year for Dad on the 10th October my sister and I alway go to the beach at 5am in the morning and have special time with him. We have lots of tears and many great memories of our lives with Dad. We throw of lots of red roses out in memory of him.

Love the Teresa Collins Friendship line too xx sooo nice.

My first ever double layout :-)

My daughter turned 18 a few months ago and I was so proud of her not wanting to go out to the clubs and drink and party... but instead got her best friend, her Dad and my sister to go sky diving with her. Sadly I was unable to make it as our dates clashed. She bought the DVD on the jump and with the music attached to it... I had tears streaming from my face. There were so many great shots I had not choice but to do this double LO xx TFL
PS Sorry about the size...bit hard to see details


I don't think so!!!

This is the shoe rack in my girlfriends walk in robe that I was so jealous off.... and guess what... they were all my size shoe so we had a ball that night... But also another guess.... I have my own shoe rack like this in my new home.. just gotta fill it now.!

Well sorry guys I have not forgotten to blog, but I have been moving house and tomorrow it will all be over... Well all I will have to do is put my new scrapping desk and tables and drawers together that I treated myself from Ikea about a month ago. I have lots of goodies I bought from Ikea that have been packed away for tomorrow so I will be excited to get them out and place them where I wish to. Loooove that shop.
I will also be offline til about Saturday due to the different phone exchange from here so I will be back up and running and hopefully rejuvenated by then.
Cant wait to scrap in my new room. I will take some photos to show you xxx

Good night for now.. my bed is calling me

Check this site out.... Cool ideas


Can you believe we are into November already? Only 7 weeks til Christmas Day... sorry to scare you like that but wow!! It has come along so fast. I am feeling a bit blessed I decied months ago to get a head start on my Christmas shopping for once. I still have a few to go but at least I have got about half of it done. It is such a busy time of the year and everyone seems to get stressed and rushed.... I am hoping to get it all finished soon so I can stay away from the shops and the craziness.
If you know what you want to get that special person for Christmas, don't forget to shop online. It is a great way to shop without all the fuss and bother. I have bought a few things online this year and it has been great. Also sometimes you can get really great bargins.

Take care and start that shopping now!!

Quote of the Day

Girls are like phones. We love to be held, talked too but if you press the wrong button you'll be disconnected!

My first challenge and I am the winner!!!

Black with 2 have a monthly challenge and my girlfriend inspired me to step out of my square and do my first challenge. I really enjoyed putting the LO together and it was quite cool to HAVE to have certain products in my LO instead of doing whatever I decided. There are soo many Challenges out there and they are a lot of fun I have decided. So hop to it and give them a go. Here is the winning LO Thanks for looking everyone Moonie x

I'm Back.... :-)

Well it has been a hectic week I can say that.
My husband and I and son have just spent 5 days in Darling Harbour Sydney for our Camera House AGM. We attended the Gala Dinner and won the most honourable award for "Camera House of the Year" Australia Wide. Being in the industry for just 18 months we were absolutely stoked. We have fantastic staff who are extremely dedicated and we treat them like family and they treat us the same. This always seems to work!! And my husband gives all he has to give to any business he gets involved in. So woooohoooo for him!!
So nice to back on track. But only for a week or so and then I will be having a wee spell for a couple of days or so as we have sold our house and are moving to our new pad this weekend.. so my week has not slowed down just because we are home... Can't wait to be moved in and settled again..
Will keep you posted.
Hope you all have a great week
Moonie xx
