Spaghetti bolognocchi.......

that's what Mackenzie named our dinner last night, it's made me giggle all day!

Craig's not a fan of gnocchi so he had the spaghetti with meatballs version of bolognase thus causing the conflict with what our's was actually called...lol.

The things she comes out with are so funny & cute sometimes & generally I forget to write them down.

Actually whilst I'm talking about Mackenzie, I should mention that today she had some of her artwork displayed in the school newsletter. Another piece of Kindy memorabilia to keep for her!

(she's not actually a child prodigy artist by the way, she did however draw the emu's neck under it's head, which was drawn by a teacher I'm assuming & then she painted the whole picture, which is kind of hard to tell from the B&W copy shown)

This is another thing that made me smile yesterday, our first daffodil of the season. Spring can't be far away, although today's weather definitely has been the polar opposite to the last few days, so who can tell! Funny how some bug has beaten me to see it too, seems you have to quick around here.

Helen has put up some very enticing sneak peeks of some upcoming classes at Red Earth Scrapping. Mistra's class will be in October & she'll be using this divine prettiness to work her magic.


& Penny Hackney will be using this lovely & bright collection for her class in November. I can't wait!



& last of all, this is my entry for Round 1 of the Scrap that Ad competition currently running at Scrapz. Go & check it out, as with all of Heike's competitions you can join in at any time. The criteria she chooses & challenges she sets are always so fun.





Reposting this for a fantastic giveaway at My Little Bit of Whimsy. Thought I might try my luck, you just never know & everything there is just so cute.

Wow gorgeous layout here, I just love everything, and how cute what your daughter called last nights tea, I put some daffodils in but they just don't look very successful, just not cold enough here I think, although the lack of a green thumb may also have something to do with it. Melxx

What an awesome pic of the daffodil. And Mackenzie's drawing is wonderful, well done to her.
Well done to you too again on your Award from the school, very deserving.
