Guilty as Charged

Nearly another month has passed and I haven't blogged! Have been sooooo busy, the silly season has sent me silly, I am sure! There are mad people in the shops, mad people on the road, kids going mad for Santa, and its just sent me MAAAADDDDDD!
Check this link out and Merry Christmas from the Hallet Clan!

All the Cybercrop was the last time I blogged, can someone pleeease buy me some more time for Christmas, I would so love that! An extra day each week with a baby sitter so that I could have one day each week for Scrapping, catching up on all theblogs, etc, would be true bliss!
Well I am thankful at the moment that my dad has taken the kids for a drive to Maitland to pick up my mum from work, so I have a little time all by myself, so its update my Blog time while I have a few spare minutes. So I hope this finds you all well, looking forward to Christmas and hopefully starting to feel in the Christmas spirit! I am all done, everything is set to go except for the groceries which I will do Christmas eve, not looking forward to that one at all, think I'll get up at 6am and go and do it before the mad mad mad rush! Errgggg!!

So what have I been up to the past month, I went to a scrap night at a friends house where she managed to snavel Jen Hall as our teacher for the night and really enjoyed doing her class! Lots of layers and very arty, and I also enjoyed doing a pink girly layout, as with all boys in the family, pink rarely gets to see the light in my house!
Lacee on her 3rd Birthday (My god daughter) I have also submitted my work for a DT position at TSE, had to submit an Off the Page design, three layouts and a card, so I have been scrapping up a storm and managed to create all these requirements and upload them to TSE! I just love TSE, it is the most friendliest forum aorund and all the girls are so lovely, like a second home to me! Another extended family! I encourage you to visit and stop by for a chat, they will welcome you with open arms!
Tessa & Lauren (joined at the hip I am sure)

Stacks on Daddy was created using a paper pack I got from my Secret Santa, I also got a beautiful handmade journal, but have to report I have been too slack to take a pic, but promise Iwill soon, thanks Julie I just love my pressie to bits! Hope you like the layout I did using your papers!

First Born - Just love this pic of Trav and Me

The Card - Made a Chrissy one, seemed appropriate seeing that it is the silly season and all.

The OTP project, a Kaiser Advent Tree using Rhonna Farrer Christmas Papers!
Made all my Christmas cards this year for all the family and close friends, over 30 of them mind you, but the result was gorgeous. Heres a peak! Now who could resist that! Travis has graduated from Pre-school and they presented me with a portfolio of all his work, a report card, a graduation certificate and a gorgeous photo of Travis graduation, believe me when I said it moved me to tears, here I am standing in the Pre-school class room, trying not to ball, and tears are running down my cheeks, I felt so proud, but at the same time so sad that Travis is growing up so quickly. Don't you just love this pic!
We haved moved Travis to bunk beds as Cooper the little devil kept climbing out of is cot and crashing onto the floor, I was so scared that he was going to break something, so we had to bite the bullet, and right on Christmas of all times, go and buy Trav some new bunk beds, mattresses, doona's and doona covers, of course we had to get Transformers. The new thing, apparently! And Cooper got Travis's Red Racing Car Bed! Just have to find him a Bob the Builder Doona Cover as they had none when I got Trav's, so he has Poppy's Kenworth Doona which has a pic of one of Dad's Trucks on the front! My boys are growing up way to fast, I so wish I could slow the time down or sprinkly some magic dust on their heads and keep them young forever!

Also this month at TSE I am doing the December Sketch Challenge, so if you haven't submitted your sketch, come one over to TSE and join us! This month I designed the skethc, completed a layout using the sketch and for something different, also created a card using the sketch!

The Layout - Princess Levi

The Card - Life's Journey

Last night we all went for a drive to see the Christmas Lights, the kids were so excited! This one house in Thornton, was amazing, they had everything, the lights were awesome, and to top it off, they had a Snow Maker in their front yard that blew snow everywhere, the lawn was white and all the kids (and well some of us bigger kids too) were jumping around under the snow, wish I took my camera, will have to go again another night and grab some photo's, it was awesome, really put me in the Christmas spirit, especially all the excited and squealing kids.

I also have to say a big thank you to all the girls over at TSE for all their wonderful Christmas Cards that I have received. I can't believe how many cards I have, my front window is full, truly amazing bunch of girls, thanks for making my Christmas!

Thats nearly all from me, I have had another haircut, different again, did not like the bob too much, so now it is shorter again and kind of textured, spikey, layered, I have taken pics but the other news is I bought a new Canon SLR, and I have taken quite a few pics, but haven't down loaded them yet, so when I work that out, I will post up a pic of my new new do!
Hope you all have a truly magical Christmas and a wonderful New Year! Here't to happiness and health for 2008!

Love Lisxx
