Backyard BLITZ - Part 2............and a PRIZE!!!

Well all weekend we have been working in the backyard....
and it is starting to look pretty good...well we think so anyway!!!!
I have made up a little slide-show for you all to see our step by step process......

It takes a bit of work to make the 'fake' grass look real....but as you can see by the last photo (the one of Lauchie lying down) it doesnt look too bad at all....
Here's to no more MOWING, WEEDING or WATERING!!!!!

We now just have to do the paving for the HOT TUB (yes Dale still wants it) and some more plants....oh and YES my Clothesline still needs putting up......lol!

Last week I created some more cards...adaptions from my September Stamp a Stacks
and also a couple of extras

I recently WON a PIF (Pay it Forward) RAK (random act of kindness)on Vita's Blog
She made me this gorgeous little wrist pouch - I just love it!

It even has little pockest inside...now that tells you its made by a Scrapbooker

Pay It Forward or PIF for short is a blog game. Basically, you win a RAK (preferably handmade) from someone's blog, and then you pay the RAK forward (again preferably handmade). Easy as pie. So as I won a PIF RAK from Vita's blog it is now my turn to pay it forward. If you want to play, post a comment and by Sunday next week, I'll draw out 1 lucky winner to receive a pack of my handmade cards - its that easy....so COMMENT away!!!!
The winner will also need to PAY IT FOWARD!!!!

WOW what a week..and its only Wednesday.....

First off I would like to say a HUGE
Hope you had a fantastic day....see you on Saturday!!!!
On Monday's Lauchie has swimming...he is getting much better - but he still needs to listen to his teacher...He tends to want to do everything by himself...but he doesnt necessarily have the skills...He is definately not scared (which is scary....lol) He also needs to listen more....grrrrrrrrr!
Here are some photos from swimming on Monday

Check out his cool GOBBLES (ie goggles for you and me...lol)

and here he is collecting the toys - he grabs around 10 of them at a time, instead of 1 at a time - Im suprised he doesnt sink...lol!
This photo was taken yesterday at the Pancake Parlor - do you remember me mentioning how much of a turd he was????
Well here is the proof...see the evil in his eyes?????
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
It probably wasnt his fault...he had his 4 year old immunisation needles too....and i think they may have resulted in him not being himself. He told me that he didnt like NOODLES (needles)...and didnt want anymore....fair enough I reckon!!!!
and here are some pics of the NEW SOFA....
