Fabulous Weekend












Well I had a fabulous weekend... I spent Friday night & Saturday morning scrapping.
The latest Elsie challenge at Embellished is to use decorative scissors...so on "Mother Hen" I played with a couple of pairs...I was planning to do a JulieH flower with a strip of pp trimmed with decorative scissors - but that never eventuated...so I'll keep that wee idea for later ;o)
I just love this pic of our Ebby - she's such a mother hen always making sure her cousins are OK & that everything is running smoothly - such a sweetie-pie!!!
Then both SBO & SBD had a St Patricks Day challenge...SBO was to use a green base/cardstock..I delved back into my BG Phoebe pack for this "Mama's Princess" LO...I'm getting sooo much milage out of these pps!!! I used an old pic of Taigy - but its a fave :o)
Then Lisa's challenge for SBD was to do a monochromatic LO using a B&W or Sepia pic...again I was in the Phoebe pack for "reach"- not sure it would qualify a monochromatic at a scrapping olympics LOL! but I'd call the pp green - looks kinda blue in the pic but you get that LOL! Lisa gave a gift to all the entrants - man that chickee is GENEROUS!!!
"Brothers" is for another Elsie challenge (#19) at Embellished - to scraplift a colour combo..I lifted the fabulous Ms Ali Russell with her black/blue/green combo - I love it! A nice addition to E's or Creedy's album
And I finished the weekend off with my entry into SBO's MArch challenge of using a speech bubble...this is more of a thought bubble - but I just love this pic of Kohatu when I told him he wasn't allowed to draw on the computer...he looks totally perplexed as to why he's not allowed to do that - damn he's cute!!! Just wanna smooch those fat cheeks!!!
OK so, that was the scrappy front...the truly fabulous part of the weekend was getting to meet a new cousin.
When my aunty was young she gave a baby boy up for adoption & he came out from Australia to meet her & we all got together for a BBQ lunch at her place on Saturday.
He is absolutely LOVELY!!!!
He has a beautiful wife & 2 gorgeous daughters..they are here for 10 days - so I'm hoping to catch up with them again...BUT...
I took Ravey to the DR today as Wayne saw some ulcers in his mouth & I noticed a rash on his leg/bum - but it was blistered...the DR says its hand, foot & mouth disease - poor bubba!!!!
So we're going to be anti-social until it clears - bummer!!!
