Back in the Saddle

Well its official - 2007 challenges have started!!
Over at SBD (scrapbooking by design) Jacqui has started the weekly challenges...this week's was to use 2 pp's - a nice easy one - I used this gorgeous pic that Heidi took when we went to the beach the other day.
We had such a great day...the weather was actually perfect - a little overcast, so it wasn't hot.
We slathered the kids in sunscreen - but I forgot to do myself & ended up a little tender - but fortunately it settled nicely & I'm lookin a little golden :o)
I was so excited about the outing I got up early & made a bacon & egg pie for our picnicy lunch...seriously EXCITED!!!
The girls had a blast & we took heaps of pics...perhaps I went over board with 225 - but nevertheless a great day was had :o)
Yesterday Ali hosted the famous One Hour Challenge over at Embellished...the only stipulation was that the LO had to have red on it - so I used my MM Holly that I received in my December Embellished Kit. Also used one of the red bookplates from the kit - quite glad that I used it - cos I don't think I would have without the challenge...I had the Holly inked & ready to go - just sitting there, but inspiration wasn't forthcoming LOL!!
In the "One fine Day" LO I used the pp's from Embellished's November Kit - loving kits at the mo!!
And I got the gorgeous green flower from Heidi - love that!! And the tags are inspired by Ali - I have a heap of them to use - so you'll be seeing a few of them around ;o)..if you see them stapled - its a Rach inspiration.
Tomorrow morning Lara is host a mini crop at SBO & Tomorrow night Sarah is hosting the Embellished Cyber Crop...so guess who will be in for a busy weekend.
Taigy turns the BIG 5 tomorrow - but she is away on holiday with her Dad, so we'll be having a party next weekend when she's home...man-o-man where did those 5 years go???
Oh, I don't want to think about it I'm getting a teary thinking about my baby growing up!!!
Well, I just wanted to have a little catch-up with you all.
Oh...got some good news today...an email from Scrapbook Creations they want one of my LOs for issue 42..waaahooooo what a way to start the year...just so you know you're looking for the name Kelly Slattery hahahahahahahahahaha.
So, now I guess we're caught up...I'll hopefully see you at the SBO mini crop or the Embellished CC tomorrow..if not - no doubt you'll seeme lurking somewhere ROFL!!!

Happy Birthday Taiga! Ethan will be 5 in May and I'm already tearing up about that, LOL!

You seem to be back into the swing of things pretty quick, Kelly!! I haven't done any scrapping since Christmas. But then I never did as much scrapping as you anyway - you really are the Challenge Queen! Congrats on being published again, that's wonderful! Can't wait to see it in print :-)
