What a week!

Seems like it has been forever since I have blogged and scrapped....lol....my mojo went on a holiday to mojo island and is only reluctantly returning after lots of prayers from me. Ok...layout on the top was done for the Scrapping the Scraps blog competition. Showing support for my Arty Pants fellow DT members Chrissy, Jill and Sarah. *waves*

Next layout was done for the Effer Dares - Last Scrapper Standing Challenge #1. Did this layout today...did the journalling while at work and quickly assembled the layout after a dinner party for Mum's birthday. Loved doing this layout as I absolutely adore the photo and I've been threatening to do a layout on DH's mid life crisis. I didn't let him read the journalling until I was done and I'm glad that he likes it...journalling and all.
Finally.....I'm published!!! After months of waiting...it's in the For Keeps magazine!!! Absolutely thrilled to see my layouts in print. Now I guess I have to pull up my socks and try to get more work published....must admit I have been rather slack in submitting layouts consistently.




















Asides from scrapping....I've had a fabulous week...had a fabulous 5 hour lunch with Mich and Shirls on Monday. I had promised to make Chilli Crab for Shirl's birthday lunch...but after my mad dash to Springvale....I was told by fishmonger after fishmonger...it's Monday...no crab. Sigh..turns out fishermen or crabbers don't work Sundays....and they come from Darwin.....so Melb only gets crab about Wednesday onwards...sigh. So after a panicked phonecall to Mich...we agreed that Chilli Crab with sandcrabs or blue swimmer crabs just wouldn't be right and decided to make laksa. And since we all like oysters....two dozen oysters were added to the basket too! Jeromel and Abby enjoyed fish tofu and banana milk.

Of course I can't leave you imagining the food...here are the foodie pics....compliments of Shirl's new camera.
