Couple of layouts.

Just thought I would share a few of the latest layouts I've done. I've been very slack since my scrapping weekend away, I had great intentions of keeping the mojo going but I've been so , so tired lately and just don't seem to have the energy or motivation to do much scrapping at all. I'm about 10 weeks behind on my art journal challenge with Emily Falconbridge and I have hundreds of photos to scrap!! SO I am making a concerted effort to get motivated!!
Here's the few I have managed to do anyway:

Feeling old!!

I used to nanny for the family of the trumpet player in this band, The Cat Empire- Harry . We just bought their new album and I love it, such fun funky music. It makes me feel really old though to see Harry up there playing his trumpet, he's a very talented young man!!


Here's a few more photo's from our day up in the hills, it's so beautiful up there and if it wasn't so far away from the business we would seriously look at moving there, we both loved it so much. I had been to Maleny for our girls weekend away but not Montville and I wish we had of headed straight to Montville, it's such a pretty little town with lots of cute and quirky shops to wander through. Next time we have visitors we will definitely be taking them up there for a look.

We took this one of all of us by self timer but it's a bit dark, it was late in the afternoon. I thought I would include it anyway as it's not often we have a photo of all of us together.

Sisterly Love???

Ella has been going through a very loving stage, she wants to hug and kiss us all the time, sometimes with a little bit too much passion. I love that she wants to do it as does Col but I'm not sure that Huddy does. I took these photos on our day up to Maleny/Montville for Col's Birthday. The cafe where we had lunch had a cubby house in the garden which was perfect to keep the kids happy while we had lunch. Ella decided she needed to give Huddy one of her hugs and kisses while we were there. He already has the "get off me and leave me alone face" of embarrassment, lol.

My poor Hubby!

It was Col's Birthday on Wednesday but yet again we were a house of sickness :(. Ella and I had some horrible tummy bug and she spent Tues and Wed vomiting, and I felt like crap so Col's birthday was a huge non-event. I don't think the kids even realised it was his birthday as we decided to postpone it until Sunday when we are all feeling much better and he is home for the day. The kids and I have been shopping to get his presents and they are very excited about his Birthday on 'Sunday" lol. I hope we can make up for the horrible day that was his actual birthday.

So if you read this before Sunday, give him a call on Sunday to wish him Happy Birthday, he'll wonder how on earth you know, lol.

Oh as an aside, I just wanted to say I'M SICK OF HAVING SICK KIDS!!!!!!!!! We have had such a bad run of sickness the last few months I think we have well and truly had our share so NO MORE! thankyou very much.
Ok I feel better now I got that off my chest, lol.

Our little Artists.

Ella ia really enjoying her drawing at the moment and has started doing drawings of people that you can actually decipher as a person instead of doing a head on one side of the page and eyes on the other (not in the head) and feet/arms/ears etc, elsewhere. She is very into drawing all of us at the moment and I am loving it. I thought I would share a photo of her artwork, it's got the whole family in it, including the two cats, lol. She had done individual ones of all of us prior to this big one and was getting sick of it by the time it got to Huddy and the cats.

Thought I should also share a photo of Hudson's artwork too, he loves drawing as well and I can't wait to see his interpretations of us in the future.
Excuse the crap photos, the drawings are hanging on the wall in the kitchen where I can't get straight on so I've had to take the photos from an angle which makes the drawings looks a bit odd.
