A break in the rain & some sunshine

that's what we have weatherwise here today on the glorious Central Coast.

It's amazing how much brighter the day seems to be when you wake up to such a wonderful morning.

Well yesterday Craig & I celebrated our 8th Wedding Anniversary, WOW 8 years seems to have just flown by, I guess that is helped aong by the fact that we spend most of time watching in amazement & wonder at our 2 gorgeous girls as they grow up. Thgorgeous flowers are of course from Craig, he also got me this great new mobile phone with all the bells & whistles, have had heaps of fun trying to work it all out, taken photos & shot some video footage with it too! The aniversary card is the card I made for him.

The weather yesterday was nothing like our actual wedding day, back then Sydney was in the middle of a heatwave & it was a steamy 42C at Berambing in Blue Mountains (almost unheard of & still a very big discussion point amongst our family & friends when the our wedding day comes up in conversation) Quite significantly cooler & soooo much rain, apparently it's been the wettest February for like 12 years or something, great news for our ever receding dam levels.

Lily went back to school for Year 1 last week, she's been place in an enrichment class, a composite with Years 1 & 2, which is totally awesome. Just need to get a little bit more info to really settle in & get back into the swing of things at the school.

Mackenzie, what can I say about her, gorgeous one minute, temper tantrum the next! Her favourite thing to do at the moment is play with Playdoh & when she's not doing that she's using up all her wipes to clean the house, the walls, the furniture, the TV, you name it & she has the overwhelming need to try to clean it.........crazy!!!!

I've done a little bit of scrapping lately too & apart from that the "Word Inspiration" comp over at Scrapworld has come to an end with ReneeC being named the ultimate & very deserving winner. Congratulations Renee, I hope you enjoy your prizes, you work is awesome & very inspiring & thank you Mel for running another great competition.

I've got a little more work to do to get ready for another Stampin' Up! workshop I'll be travelling into Sydney on Friday night for & a few photos laying around waitng for me to scrap. I think when I get little bit more free time over the next few days that I might actually submit a few of my resent pages to the mags & see how I go.

Oh, a couple of weeks ago I received the most amazing RAK from the gorgeous SueB from over at 3AS. It was such an amazing, generous & kind gesture. She sent this absolute huge parcel filled with PPs, chipboard, buttons, flowers & so much more. Thank you once again Sue, I'm having a great time using the goodies. xxx

I made the Thank you card for Sue, just have to get to the post office & send it off.

Not much else to report on, although Nat if you read this best of luck with the impending birth of your new baby, very much looking forward to catching up with you, Noah & the little one sometime soon. Take care xxx

PS: Don't forget to the Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration offer will finish at the end of February, so contact me to find how you can qualify for one or more of four free, bonus, limited edition stamps sets.
