Okay, now I finally know what to do about this tagging business, I'll finally do the post! I need to share 5 things that not many people know... Well, my PND is no secret, so there's no point in sharing that, is there! LOL! Ummmmmm... In no particular order

* I'm addicted to Terry Pratchett's discworld series
* My degree is in Pure Mathematics & Psychology
* I have no knuckle on the little finger of my right hand
* My father was Russian, so my name growing up was Mazanov
* I have different hearing losses in each ear

Okay, I think that's all! :)

Meet at Dee Why

Girls from the 3 Angels Scrapping forum met up at Dee Why today - here's a photo of the beach...

It was lovely to chatter in real life with people I spend so much time chattering to online! Everyone was lovely! I just wish I'd had a little more time to spend with everyone... At least I made it!

stress relief

An early Ryan layout for a challenge - monochromatic & 8.5"x11". Keeping it pretty simple...

Uniform shop

Just a quick post while I've got a moment!! Started at the Uniform Shop this week (officially) and its been very busy! Keeping stock levels up is going to be a challenge as everything is done by hand. Not sure how I'm going to combat this yet. But on the plus side, thought of a way of storing our socks (which has been an issue) which creates another shelf of space for us to use for shirts etc. YAY! Okay, gotta run!

Post 100!!

Yay! My 100'th post and another Lily layout to show...

And I should probably add some blogging here too. Forgot to take my AD yesterday and felt really buzzy by the evening. Figured it out when I went to bed and realised I hadn't taken my meds. So today have felt slightly loopy and forgetful.

Very excited as I start being paid tomorrow for my job at the Uniform Shop! :)

So pleased with how this turned out - a "new" thing called "inchies"... (edited to add better pic of image)

Basic Grey!!

My big news of the last few days is that my "Adore this Moment" layout was accepted on the Basic Grey Gallery! :) YAY! I'm very excited as this is a world-wide gallery and gets loads of visits. One of my fellow EB'ers also is in there - she inspired me to submit my layout - Col. So have a look for us! Click on the list of "Designers" and our names are there under "C"!

Princess Lily

My beautiful niece on Good Friday '07. Love photographing babies at this age!

Well, I scrapped loads over the last week, have been rearranging layouts left-right and centre. But this one came together really quick....

Thursday, April 12, 2007


Well, I decided to enter the For Keeps Awards for Excellence (if I can get five layouts to that standard!!!) and I've printed a bunch of photos. I'm second-, third- and fourth-guessing myself. I'm so uncertain of what I'm doing and I'm constantly bothering Cat with my unstuck ideas... *sigh* Perhaps I could forget the decision and just create pages and then see?? Gosh, I don't know. And its really hard because I'm not supposed to publish any that I want to enter. So I can't check and get the feedback I would normally get from the EB scrappers or the 3AS girls... Hope I sort this out soon!

Cool Dude!

Toby tried on my glasses and put them on upside down. He thought he was so hot!! Look at that grin!

ARGH! WHY did I have children?

OMFG! I am VERY over having children tonight! I know its the AF hormones getting to me, but geez Louise! I could have cheerfully strangled the lot of them when they didn't eat dinner. Then Caitlyn wee'd her pants all over the loo floor and had a hissy fit about it. And then Toby decided to spit out the soy & linseed bread he'd been chewing into the bath and this caused hysteria and all of them out in 2 seconds flat!! GRRRRRRRRRRR! (stomping ranting Mummy-monster)

Much better after a good vent!

Just a few pics I took today - getting so much better with the digi camera - loving it! Wish I could do this for a living!

Nothing much...

Toby's eye is all healed up and I've been working at the Uniform Shop loads this week. Other than that, not much happening... If I manage to scrap, I'll pop it in here! :) ETA: I've finished one - challenge from 3AngelsScrapping Designer Dee. Getting outside my comfort zone!

My Bright Boy

Oh, and I made the front page of 3Angels!! Check it out!
