My Little Princess is Sleeping!! and I scrapped!

Montana had 2 daytime sleeps yesterday. It's the first time for over a week that she has done this and I think with her being sick was the reason why she wasn't sleeping. But she did yesterday and I was able to scrap!!
I bought a butterfly album and have been dying to do it. I was able to start it yesterday while she slept and while DH was home to help out if she cried or fussed.
It's the first time that I have done anything OTP other than a canvas last year. I am happy with the way it is coming along and the learning process as I go. It was also the first time that I have used Stazon on acetate. I really like the stuff but I think I need more practice with it. But it looks ok. I will post pics later.

I am so excited. I have started ordering new scrap albums I want. They are the Print Block D Ring Albums and they look like they would hold heaps more than the normal ones I have. I have to order one or two a week cos the budget (and DH) would have a fit if I ordered them in one hit, as much as I want them all NOW!! I am getting one for each member of the family as well as a family one and all in different colours so I can 'quick pick' them.
The hardest part was choosing which colour first!! I ended up going the green for the family. But then I had a phone call asking if I wanted to get 2 now as it was cheaper to post than just 1. So of course I said yes. I will just have to hide the other one for a week!!

The school holidays started last Friday and I have both the kids home. Although DD has been at her mum's since Friday and I think she is coming home today.
We haven't got much planned for the school holidays, just scrapping (both the kids love to scrap) and maybe the movies next week.
I bought some clay, 2 slabs, last school holidays for DS after his surgery and I still have 1 1/2 left over, so I may motivate them to make something. I am planning on doing a sculpture of Montana. Maybe. Possibly. I will try.

Well, gotta run. Want to scrap before Montana wakes again.

Till next time...........

Growing Up So Fast!!

My Little Monkey is growing up so fast. Well I should say my little Princess as she is just such a good baby. She was 6 weeks yesterday and boy has the time flown.
She has a little cold at the moment but still hasn't really complained or cried about it. She was irritable and yucky last weekend and is slowly getting over it. It's just the runny nose and little bit of congestion now.
But I thought I would share these pics I took yesterday and on the weekend. The cot one was taken last weekend and I just had to take a pic to remember how tiny she is in the cot.

I haven't had time to scrap at all with Montana being sick. She has been 'attached' to me since last Wednesday. She is in my arms as I write this.
Hopefully with the school holidays coming up next week, I will have 2 babysitters that can help me out with things so I can scrap.
Till next time......

Sweet Hubby

Hubby come home from the shops this afternoon and guess what I got!!?? A scrapbooking magazine. How sweet he is. But then I asked him what did he get. He just smiled and said 'the footy is on soon.' He buttered me up with the right stuff!!

Anyway, I got to scrap a little last night for the Scrapping The Music challenge. I got to scrap for about an hour while Montana slept. I wasn't happy with the end result so I am going out in a minute to have another go while Montana watches the footy with Dad before her sleep.

It is Scrap Therapy's Cybercrop this weekend. Some great challenges have been put up. The easiest challenge ever has been put up and anyone can do it. All you have to do is join up and be online between 8.50pm and 9.05 pm tomorrow night when Lee-anne announces who the Manufacturer of the Month is. That's it. It's that easy. So head on over and join up or just be online tomorrow night to be in the running.

I'd better go and get some scrapping done. Hope to see you at the Scrap Therapy Cybercrop.

Till next time........

Montana and her Daddy

A beautiful photo of Montana and her daddy. I love it. Just a shame she is out of focus. I will try again.

Scrap Time!

Hooray! I got to scrap yesterday! I got to do 2 layouts of Montana for a Scrap Therapy surprise challenge. The challenge was to use our gorgeous new Thickers. I didn't have mine yet, but snuck down to the LSS and buy 6 packets on top of the 19 packets that are coming. They should be here today and I can't wait. Here are the 2 layouts ~

Just Adorable

My Girl!

Till next time!
