A small share yet again

lol I have been scrapping up a storm but not much I can share yet. I have been working with my latest Lime Tart kit as well as Scrapping the music and Ad this pages and some pages for my 52 week album which I have yet to take photos of.
I spent a nice day scrapping at Christine's today with Tracey. Yeap on fathers day. After Craig deserted me all day on Mothers day to go play with his remote control car club buddies I returned the favour and he had a daddy and daughter day while I went and scrapped. lol I warned him I was going to do just that. Pay back is a B***h they say and it felt so
I also had a little injury durring the week. Ooops. We brought our selves as a Wii fit a while back and while I was on long service leave I would get on it once I dropped Missy of at school but since going back to work I only get on it the Wed and Thurs I am of. Well Wednesday morning I go to do it and the Wii fit board is flat so I put it on charge and decided to play the sord play game on Wii sports resort. I was enjoying it until I moved the wrong way just a little too quickly and twisted my knee. I was fine for about half an hour and then it was really really sore. I had to go into Just scrapbooking to pick up my latest dt pack and Lou took one look at me hobbling in and laughed. I ended up staying and chatting to the girls who had come to crop and the shop girls for a few hours, stayed around for a yummy lunch as it was Jordies b'day the day before and gave the food shop the flick as there was no way I wanted to push or would of been able too push a shopping trolley around with the way my knee was. Any I went to the docs on Thurs arvo, still hobbling and I ended up taking Fri of work as well. As I had to rest my knee dh had to do the dread food shop and Craig being Craig put it of till Saturday morning thinking that I'd be walking ok by then to do it. Ummmm nope he had to do it and wasn't a happy chappy about it either. lol
The new jack is up or I should say jacks as this month as last you have the choice of two fabbo Aussie scrappers to jack Loretta Grayson or Kim Arnold. I chose to jack Kim's layout. I scribbled down a basic sketch and decided to scrap a 6 by 12 double layout.
I've had to take down my layout as it has been accepted into an Aussie mag. Sorry guys.
A few weeks back at school it was dress up day for book week and Asher wanted to go dressed as a swan princess so I grabbed some white material from mum and set to work one day after school making up some simple wings but no just having wings wasn't enough for Missy. While I was sorting them out she was drawing at the bench beside me. Drawing a plan for the rest of her costume right down to some leg feathers and a beak.
There went my simple idea out the window. An hour later we were done and headed out the back for a photo shoot. This was taken the morning before we headed of to school. You can get more of an idea of what our handie work looked like and at a very big streach of the imagination she passed as a swan
Well that is about it for now. I'll be back tomorrow sometime to share my latest project for STM and Just Scrapbooking.
Thanks for popping in, any comments and happy scrapping.
