Another funny for the week, Trav had had a big day playing and doing things that kids do. On this particular day he did not have his daily nap, about 5pm he wanted a sandwich and curled up on the lounge to watch his daily cartoons while I cooked tea. Just as tea was ready I came to get him and this is how I found him, absolutely dead tired, fell asleep on the lounge sitting up with his sangas still in his lap, too priceless.
Third funny for the week, Cooper decided that Rusty Puppys new bed was really comfy and this is where I often find him watching TV now? Poor Rusty has to sleep on the floor!
My mum and Dad left for Europe on Saturday, so boo hoo for me, I am so close to my parents and I usually see them everyday, if not, I chat on the phone to them, probably because I am an only child and have a good bond with them. So they are off and left us here all alone, boo hoo, and I am left to look after the business, check their house and feed their animals. Travis had a big cry too when their bus picked them up to travel to Sydney airport! A very sad day indeed, lets hope they enjoy their time in Europe, as I am sure they will, least mum has her Travel Diary with her that I made.

OK, well here it is, I did something shocking, exciting and well maybe damn stupid but het, we have to do these things every now and then. I have been feeling quite dull lately, looking boring, tired, blah blah blah, we have all sung that song at some stage in our lives, so I decided to go for the chop and add colours. So what did I do, I cut off all my long brown hair and got blonde and copper foils for a change. I feel modern and trendy now and alot more vibrant, exactly what I needed! Just have to get used to it now! But I am liking it! What do you think?

This layout is of the lovely girls I met from TSE when I visited Sydney a few weeks back. We had such a great time and it was so wonderful to meet these girls. To create type in this layout, I cut out the word TSE out of a Kodak Film strip negative and embellished the layout with strips of the film strip negative.

Grant had off Monday and Tuesday as his Picnic then Roster Day, and it was really nice to have him home and get some odd jobs done around the house together! This is what family is all about! Grant spent Tuesday pulling out the motor in his commodore, ready to repimp everything, then respray the engine bay, and some time down the track respray the outside and pimp the inside. He gets a kick out of doing cars up, think he is onto his 4th since I have known him! Not to mention all the others he has done for his mates! Handy being a panel beater and a great one at that! So while Grant was playing with his Commodore, the kids were happy playing out in the shed too, so I got some well earnt scrapping time, and completed two layouts for my Feature Designer position at The Scrapbook Establishment. This month is all about Type - or Typography! So my layouts have to incorporate Type to some description. Here they are:-
Today is Wednesday and the kids and I spent the day with Nanny shopping again! Bought Grant some work shorts, and I got myself some baskets to fill full of scrapbooking stuff when I get to cleaning out the backroom! Can't wait to reorganise all my stuff again, so it is even easier to find, I so dream of oneday having my own little Scrapping Shack out the back! Oh one day!
Also completed another layout last week that I forgot to put up here, it was a sketch challenge from Kathy Pit over at TSE, have to admit that I am really loving these sketch challenges at the moment, takes all the hard work out of where to put your papers and pictures! Great stuff Kathy, keep them coming!
Tomorrow is Thursday and its work all day doing Book work and wages, then Friday I have the carpet cleaning people come in to clean my carpets, yay, then all my house will be clean from top to bottom! So happy about that! Saturday is Beauty Therapy day at Medowie and Sunday I am catching up with my bestie Jane Blanch, who we have been the closest and bestest friends for the past 27 years! May even get some scrapping done on Sunday too, see what happens! Until then take care and give all your families huge kisses and cuddles.Love Always

JANES DAD (Priceless smile)I really enjoyed the shopping with Jane, drooling all over Janes beautiful creations, and believe me when I say, there are heaps! I mean heaps! Boxes and shelves full of OTP creations! And all just simply stunning, as someone said, how come we don't know you? You should be famous by now, another Ali, fabulous fabulous work and I am so proud that you are apart of TSE!
Saturday night we had so much fun creating our own creations, plus dancing and amusing Willy. Sunday was much of the same, more scrapbooking, more entertaining Willy. I just loved all of it, I really unwound! Jane I can never explain in words just how delighted I was to be apart of your world and for you and your family in welcoming me into your home! Again Truly blessed! So before I get too soppy and mushy, I will say thankyou to all the girls who came over to Janes, Lara, Rae, and Annette L and Annette R and your gorgeous boys, I had a great time meeting with you all, and Jane I love you and your family, and can't wait until the next time!
My Ribbon Book
Back home to reality, even had my mum and dad waiting for me at home, was like I had been away for months, really made my night! My babies were all over me, couldn't get enough cuddles and kisses, makes it all worthwhile! Dad ordered Chinese and I filled them all in on my wonderful weekend away. Mum instantly fell in love with my handbag!
Again, thanks to all the girls at TSE for coming to meet Jane and I! Was awesome of you all and fantastic to meet you, to my gorgeous Jane, and your wonderful parents, thanking your welcoming me into your world for the weekend, I had a ball and enjoyed every minute! So whens the next one! Good night and sweet dreams! Will post some more about the week so far tomorrow!
