Thought I'd share this layout I did the other night...
I don't think you'll be able to read the journalling but each little strip lists little things like lot of smiles, enjoying tummy time, no more splint.... things about Madi at 2 months old.
I had another Scrap-a-Sketch class today. Here's one of my examples... (silly me forgot to scan my other layout so I'll have to share that one another day...)
(This is Paul attacking the kids' totem tennis in the backyard with the plastic baseball bat... the boys loved it of course and I must admit it made me giggle to watch him. He's such a big kid sometimes! )
I've been looking around for a while now for a brand new camera. I've really been wanting a digital SLR... never had one before... and now I'VE GOT ONE!!! Woohoo!!! It's a Nikon D60 and I've been having so much fun playing with it! The kids are sick of me chasing them around the house trying to take their photo... It came with a 8GB memory card so I can literally take thousands of photos without having to download... perfect for when we go away on holidays! So now I've got lots of learning to do, but I'll be enjoying every minute! (Thanks Paul... I feel very spoiled!)
This weekend just gone turned out to be a busy one for us. Ayden came home from school on Friday afternoon with the class 'pet'... a stuffed cat called Tubbs. Every weekend one of the kids gets to take him home and then they have to complete a page in the book about their adventures over the weekend. Ayden was soooo excited to finally have his turn. He made Tubbs a special bed to sleep in ... very cute... we took a couple of photos... then Saturday we had our big day out with Tubbs.
We started off with a walk to the lake around the corner. Tubbs rode with Ayden on his bike and when we got there we fed the ducks. Then we headed on down to Careflight (where Paul works) because we just had to show Tubbs the helicopters and get some pics of him there! Lunch was next on the agenda, so we decided on fish and chips at Burleigh beach. It was a little chilly in the breeze, but it was so nice in the sunshine. The kids had a ball playing in the park and climbing some trees, then it was time for home again. All in all I think Tubbs had a pretty good time! LOL! I know Ayden thoroughly enjoyed it... and it ended up being a lovely day out for all of us.
Well, that's it from me for the moment. I just got my Scrapbook Creations mag in the post today so I'm heading to the couch for a little browse before bedtime. Enjoy the rest of your week!

This is Paul's Grandma (one of Madi's Great Grandparents) meeting Madi for the very first time last year. Can you believe she's 91 years old?
I love these photos of Madi... but she really can't resist eating the sand every time we go to the beach! EWWWW!!! I hope she grows out of that habit before next summer....

All the kids had also written a description of their Mum's which were hung around the room (without their names attached) and we had to try and guess which one was us. After a bit of searching I finally found mine....apparently I have brown hair (?), green eyes, wear pj's with love hearts & diamonds (?), give him Weetbix out of the box for breakfast, make him transformers and pictures, I am beautiful and he loves me very much! LOL! So sweet and funny! The brown hair threw me when I first started reading it, and the pj's since I don't own any with love hearts and diamonds on them.... but the Weetbix and transformers gave it away!
I got my copy in the letter box today, so I know what I'll be doing tonight...curling up on the couch in my pj's with a hot cuppa in one hand and my magazine in the other!
