Catch up

WOW, it's been a crazy busy few weeks ... and isn't slowing down yet.

First up, Caitlin turned 6 on the 4th September!!! We had a family dinner and cake at home then the following day, her actual birthday we surprised her with an afternoon of ten pin bowling followed by dinner at a restaurant which is a luxury for us these days.

Marty's been flat out trying to get crops sprayed (fertiliser and chemical for weeds etc) but the rain just keeps on coming. We dont dare complain because after 9 years of drought, wet weather is still quite exciting, but we've had so much rain this year that there's no where for the water to go now, the paddocks are soaked so we cant even get a tractor in to spray. We've booked a crop duster (plane) to do the paddocks we cant access but the plane even bogged in on the air strip last weekend LOL. Every time it rains now the creeks and even the river through town floods which really amuses the kids. But everything is looking pretty good, if we can get the last of the spraying done we should be set for a good harvest ... but you never count your chickens before they're hatched, definitely not in this farming game I tell ya.

Anyway,  between working at the dairy, Red Earth Scrapping and the usual family comings and goings, somehow I've found time for a bit of scrapping which is always good. It's wonderful therapy if nothing else.

This first page is "just because" which is always good. I wanted to use this pic and I felt like creating a busy sort of page with lots of flowers and pearls ... so I reached for the ever-faithful Websters Pages, Prima, Green Tara and I actually made the paper blossoms using some old Kaiser paper flowers, scrunching them into layers for a dimensional flower.

This page is totally different, more linear and simple. It's for the Stuck?! September 1st sketch challenge.


As I mentioned I've been busy with Red Earth Scrapping and you can check it all out HERE!!! There's even a Cyber Crop happening at the moment, our very first in fact. Plus I've been uploading so much new stock, trying to do a bit every day. I've decided to have a SPRING SALE during the Cyber Crop as well to make room for all the new stuff arriving so make sure you check it out and grab some bargains.
This week I'm off to Sydney with my girlfriends for a couple of days - we're hitting the shops one day followed by the Tim McGraw concert. YUMMO, eye candy and great music, sounds like a great night out to me. Sadly my shopping will be the browsing variety, but hey, some girl time is important.

So til next time, happy scrapping and hope to see you over at RES.
