Happy 8th Birthday to my gorgeous Girl..... Keely Allyson :)

Well today is the 8th Birthday of one of my sweet little girls.... Miss Keely Allyson! We've had a great day so far, Keely has enjoyed opening up her pressies, we bought her a new Playstation Game, Tamagotchi (yet another) & a new pair of spunky black long pants omg she loves them! Oh and how could I possibly forget??? I made her a gorgeous card for the occasion, yes folks, that's right, I actually finally made a card that was able to be given lmao, now that's a first eh!

Her Nan & Grandpa are away exploring this beautiful Country of ours again, currently in Northern Territory having a ball, but they snuck a little surprise into the house for Keely before they left a few weeks ago. Can't believe the lil toffee nose didn't spot it hiding away in my closet lol (this kid is a great snoop...usually) So what's in the enormous box? A lovely new pair of trackie pants and matching hoody top Oh Gosh, this girl is over the moon with excitement today lol.

So....I let her stay home today and enjoy her goodies cos quite frankly, who wants to go to school and leave all their new treasures behind? We had some pizza, then Mummy had to get the dreaded Mixmaster out of hiding and whip up a quick treat for tonight with the family. We had a little bit of help from Betty Crocker again lol lol lol. So we are having a delightful Chocolate Swirl cake covered in a whole lotta heavenly chocolate frosting with oodles of smarties on top and some gorgeous little candy fairies that I managed to find recently on one of my shopping trips.

So here is a little collage of Keely's day so far.....

I had a lesson on making one of these cards yesterday out at Discover Scrapbooking, thoroughly loved this one, so came home and whipped up a pink one with cupcakes for Miss Keely's birthday last night, I used Pink CS, DCWV Sweets Paper Range, Ribbon, various stamps, Versa Inks. She loved it!!! yay

Dreams come true.....I'm a Big Sister :)

I printed this photo out with the intention of using it in the LOS #4 Challenge recently, but changed my mind. I just adore this photo of Miss Ellen, it was taken on the day she became a "Big Sister" and had her very first cuddle of her baby sister Amy. I just love how her whole face lit up in this photo.

Thanks for looking, hope you all have a great day and enjoy the rest of your weekend :) xo Kris

What's been happening here......

Well not a whole heck of a lot this weekend, kids have totally driven me to the brink of insanity this weekend, my delightful Master 11 has almost made me want to have myself committed to a nice safe softly padded cell somewhere :(

Thank goodness for friends is all I can say. My dearest friend Martina (Tina) always seems to manage to lift me out of those dark places, for that I thank her immensely xo

So I decided to have a bit of a play with one of her gorgeous little girl's piccies yesterday and made this for her.

Thanks Tina for being a fabulous friend girl xo

Croc's Rule at Australia Zoo .......

I thought I'd share this delightful double layout that I did for my most fave scrappy friend last weekend. Martina & I decided to swap photos and try scrapping for each other, well I must say my first attempt was very sad :( I had to admit defeat lol and ask for some different piccies, I knew she'd have some of her little fellow with animals.... was plotting and planning on making use of some of my fabulous Myscrapchick files, so these are the pics I was sent and this is the resulting layout. I'm so stoked that she loves it and can't wait to catch up with her this weekend while she's in town to give them to her :) The Palmtrees are actually my own files but I haven't had a chance to clean up the files to share yet, will try to get around to doing that soon. Until then, CHEERS Kris :)
