Friday night I had a workshop in Baccas Marsh...OMG! that is a long way a way.....but I had a great time....and the Hostess was just lovely....

Saturday I had the girls over for a day of scrapbooking, and of course chatting....I managed to get a few things on my 'to do' list done...so that was good.....The other girls did a great job....getting numerous projects finished off. YOU GIRLS ROCK!
Saturday night I went to my sis's boyfriends b'day party...so that was good....I also got to catch up with my mum and dad...

Tuesday (TODAY) - I caught up with Dee for a fundraiser for her friend....It was great to catch up again, even though it was only for a short time...We will be catching up for coffee again soon.
I also received my COMISSIONED Layout back from Scrapbook Creations....It was supposed to appear in this months Issue 45...but will be featured in next months instead (due to them running out of room) I seriously cant wait to see this LO in print...as I spent so much time on it...and im so thrilled with the results - so make sure you take a look at Scrapbook Creations Issue #46 - Ill let you know when i receive my free copy.
I also SPLURGED today...big time!

Tomorrow I'm having a scrap day with my friend Suzie...after I drop off Lauchie at Daycare....Im really looking forward to it...Not sure if I will Scrap or Stamp.....maybe a bit of both...Hopefully I will have something to share with you all at the end of the day....fingers crossed.....
