So over the past few days I have seen on Facebook so many people say good riddance to 2011. Now I have in no way had a fab year after losing a loved one in February, but I can truly say besides that I have had a good year. I am happy, my family is happy, we are all in good health and we have a roof over our heads and food on our table every night. We have hard times and sad times like everyone else, but I choose to celebrate the happy times rather than dwell on the bad or sad. So tonight I will say goodbye 2011, thanks for the good times and welcome 2012, looking forward to the life, happy times and whatever else you may bring. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!! See you on the flip side :)

Merry Christmas

 There is nothing I love more than flicking through old photo's and seeing what we were like soooo long ago!
This first one is myself and my brother Craig. I love how much I see my own kids in the pic, and I think we were super cute back then too lol.
This photo is one I have never really in the past paid much attention to. I have cropped it down as it was the last pic on the film I think, and had that big red/white section on one side. Now I ♥ it! It would have to be around 1987 I think.
This one has always been one of my faves. Nan had it in a frame at her place for a long time, I'm not sure its still there though. I think from the size of Mark in this one it would be 1986.

I have to wonder..... ??

 If anyone reads my blog anymore? 
If you come for a visit, I would love to hear from you!! I am so guilty of checking out blogs, and not stopping long enough to comment, but I would love to know who stops by here..
I just have 2 layouts to share today.. First one is using the Merry Savvy BRIGHT kit, as mentioned in the post below, and yes I can still get MORE layouts from this kit!!!
This page was really a just because page, and I must say I think its a new fave ♥ 
although I did manage to get that black mister hueys in all kinds of places I didnt want it, both on my desk and on the layout lol.. I used this page to showcase the red vinyl heart on my latest Purple Pumpkin blog post!
Don't forget to let me know if you stopped by :)

November reading.

All dates are stamped!! He got a free pass for the last week since we were just so busy, with school concerts, tani's dance etc, but he is right back into it now! He is reading chapter books now, they are called zac power test drive, the text is HUGE which helps him a bit I think. He reads one chapter per night, there are usually only about 6 chapters to a book though lol. The best thing is he wants to do it. :)

MORE She's Savvy...

 Finally I have managed to play with my She's Savvy kit a little more...
After a crazy busy week I had plenty of time today to scrap and wouldn't you know it, my mojo was AWOL.. I managed to whip up the first 3 pages this afternoon though.. I have added a teensy bit of Purple Pumpkin products here and there, and some masking tape and dymo labels, but pretty much everything else is from the kit.. The last page was done last week..

Christmas Photo...

 Last weekend we went for a drive with the kids to take the traditional Santa Hat photo's....
But while we were there my camera stuffed up and all my photo's deleted.
I'm not totally sure, but I think it was my 50mm lens that is buggered not the camera, which is still sad, but not devastating as it would have been if it was my camera! I'm still going to keep an eye on it, but hopefully its OK!
So after I lost all the photo's  I took I came back here and just snapped a few using my normal lens..
These are just a couple as I am using it as a test post for Facebook lol..

Stuck?! December 1st...

Last week...

 Or maybe it was the week before lol,
I had a bit of a scrappy week.... I still have a few layouts not yet shown.
But I'm just going to show these 2 for now.
Both are pictures from our recent trip to Bermagui, and both are using iPhone pics, with the hipstamatic app... I haven't used that app much since I started using the instagram, but I love these pics!!
Both using Happy Days papers from Echo Park too... I love the spots and stripes range!
Sheri and Zayney, saying goodbye.... ♥
Me and My Kidlets, playing at the beach... fully clothed lol.
The best trips to the beach are the impromptu ones, even if we aren't allowed to get wet or we aren't getting back in the car... haha
This is one of my favourite photo's of me and the kids ♥
will show more during the week!
