Red Earth Cybercrop is underway

this weekend right up til midnight on Wednesday the 23rd March, so why not stop by & join in the fun!

This month's theme is "Inspiring Women" so if you have that special someone you look up to, have learnt from or just plain thankful to have in your life these are the challenges for you & with some fabulous prizes up for grabs, what could be better?

Here's my sample page & card for my 2 part challenge

& this is my photo for the 2nd photography challenge, frangipanis in our back garden.

Really happy with how soft & pretty it came out, straight out of the camera, no editing & using all manual camera settings.

Helen's got a whole bunch of new stock arriving including lots of gorgeous Prima, G45, Echo Park, Bo Bunny, Little Yellow Bicycle, Webster's Pages & Basic Grey.

Check out her fantastic Red Earth Scrapping Shop for all your scrapping needs.

Thanks for stopping by.

What we've been up to.......

We had a little break away the other week when we headed up to Kingscliff for the 2011 NSW Nippers State Titles. Lily competed really well in all her events & we are so proud of her for getting in & having a go. The waves were certainly a fair size larger & alot more rough than the normal surf we experience around here & she managed to get out & around the cans & back in successfully in both the swim & board races, massive rips & all!

After a night in Coffs Harbour, we spent the morning having the most fantastic time interacting with the animals at Pet Porpoise Pool. Afterwards we continued on to Hastings Point where we set up camp for the week. It was really a mixed bag of weather for the week with lots of rain, which made staying in a tent that bit more fun....LOL (not)....but still a bit of sunshine during the day to dry ourselves out.

We caught up with some of Craig's mates as well which was great & I managed to win a fantastic meat tray in a raffle at Seagulls Leagues Club when we went out for dinner one night with Brad (an old school mate of Craig's) & his mum. The kids also got in a swim at Broadbeach on the way to Tracey & David's up on the Gold Coast. It was fantastic to catch up with them again & to visit them in their beautiful new home.

The nippers competition was on over the weekend from Friday to Sunday & Lily competed in a few events each day including flags, the swim, the board, sprints & then finishing off on Sunday with the March Past.

On the way home we stopped at Coffs Harbour again, this time it was sunny, so the kids got to have a nice swim in the beautiful harbour whilst I took some photos. Can't believe in all the years of travelling up & down the coast I'd never actually seen more of Coffs than The Big Banana!

Thought I might pop in a couple of pages from a few weeks ago for a comp that was running at Scrapz. I didn't have the time to get right into the swing of the whole thing but I was happy to get the 2 pages done, after all any scrapping is good scrapping!
