Happy 18th Birthday Jordan!!!
Today, my eldest baby Jordan turned 18. I'm still in denial that I am the mother of a legal adult. tee hee. The above photo was taken at his Year 12 formal a couple of weeks ago.....don't they look like a fabulous bunch of young adults? They all came to our house so that I could take a few pics before the limo picked them up. OMG...the limo was sooo cool.....it had blue neon lights under it. After the formal, there were two after parties and Jordan got home at 6am!!! He was only just 5 mins walk away which was good. We didn't have to go pick him up.
DH's midlife crisis layout has finally been published in Scrapbooking Memories this month. It was one of my first layouts accepted!!! I think DH was half hoping that they wouldn't publish it anymore...tee hee. I still love this layout even though it was done nearly a year ago!!!
I got some Happy Mail today!!!! Sweet Christie sent me a gorgeous little package today. It was really nice getting a surprise in the mail. I absolutely adore the red felt owl ....I'm going to use it on a layout really soon. And the cute little monogram is sitting on my scrap table.
Last Friday, I had a small lunch for Felicity's birthday. Michelle and Jacqui came over . It wasn't a big do because Felicity has been sick and wasn't even sure if she would be able to come until the night before!! We had a nice lunch of yummy Singapore chicken curry. All the kids came along as well and they had a lot of fun dressing up!
Tuesday, Kylie came over with her girls for lunch. Made a yummy vegetable soup with bake at home rolls. Wednesday Julia and Matt came over for lunch (roast vegie soup & bake at home rolls)....and Mich and her kids popped over as well.
So yes, it has been a busy week for socialising........no mojo for scrapping. I think my mojo might have hopped into Felicity's pressie by mistake!! I've printed some photos off, gone through my paper stash, taken out some embellishments, moved things around and generally made a mess. No layout to show....I did make some Christmas cards though. I'm too embarassed to show them ....I mean.....who makes christmas cards in July? Who???? A mojoless person...that's who!!!
And what does a girl with no mojo do???? She shops of course!!! This is my stash from this week!!! Actually all from a day. LOL....yummy Buzz n Bloom alphas from Bons Scraps
And the gorgeous Jenny Bowlin, Rhonna Farrer and 7G stuff is all from Arty Pants
BTW, Arty Pants have their front page all done and their first kit is online as well. So go and check it out and don't forget to stop by the forum for a bit of a look see!And asides from shopping and entertaining, I am sooo rapt that I got 6 acceptances!!! 2 from Scrapbooking Memories, 2 from Scrapbook Creations and 2 from Creating Keepsakes!!!
Ok....lastly, I forgot that I hadn't actually shared the layouts that I did with my Scrapping Angels kit!!! I had heaps of fun with this kit and it was really well received by all the ladies who bought the kit. It comes with all the products and instructions for 4 layouts. I can share 3 because 1 has been picked up for publication!
If you're still here.....leave a comment!!!! LOL...I get lots of hits but not many comments!! Don't feel shy....please delurk and say Hi!
