Well today the kids had the next level of their swimming, the morning started of with some much needed and very refreshing rain, so at first we were unsure if the carnival would run but alas it did and here are the results:

Miss Chelsea went for her 8 years age Race and came home first!!!! so now she is off to Albury to compete at the Riverina Swimming Carnival she was so proudof herself and well me I was grinning from ear to ear lol :0).

And Royce came home with a 2nd in his 50 Free and Backstroke, 1st in the 50m Breastroke, Butterfly and 1st in the 50m Medley which gave him enough points to win the Junior Boy Champion Trophy overall form all the schools he was so proud of himself, as was I.

Ki_stamps_roy_boy .Collage9

I also created this little Maya road box board book.

It is all about Chelsea and the friends she has met at scrapbooking classes.

I used the KI Memories Journalling stamps again and bits and pieces left over from the SEI goodies from my other LO's.

Just LOVE the bright colours in this little book.

Photo's on one side and journalled on the photo.

Love Love_smiling

These 3 layouts were all on the theme LOVE LOVE LOVE, realy easy topic to do this one and I love what I have created.

First one is Dvid and I in the heart of scrap pieces :0).

Second one is Chelsea's beautiful Smile and the Journalling reads:

"I have never seen a smiling face that wasn't beautiful"

And the third layout is of My sister Melissa and her little girl Brianna - a Mother's Love. I love this photo also it was one of the photo's that won me the Masters photography award I have just altered it a tad in Photoshop.

{Our trip to see the Boats}

So with much excitement we took Royce and Chelsea down to Sydney yesterday to see the 2 big boats on the harbour. We joined family on the Vagabond boat at 7.00pm and sailed out to get up close with the two ships.

Wow were we impressed the atmosphere on the harbour ws unreal there were more boats then their were Australia Day it was packed, and there were people EVERYWHERE. Thetraffic was just gridlocked in the city and it took us an 1hour from Hyde Park to get to Circular Quay.

After we docked we had to walk from CQ to Pitt street just to get a taxi - (IN heels too) but the buzz was unreal again the streets were packed!!!

Royce had been reading stas on the Boats for days before so he knew they were going to be big BUT not that BIG the Queen Mary is spectacular I just wanted to climb aboard and sail away!!!!

Queen Mary 2 Facts:

·        QM2 towers 61m above the waterline, which is two metres higher than the road deck on the




·        From the bottom of her keel to the top of her funnel, QM2 measures 72m or 4.6m higher than the highest sail on the Sydney Opera House

·        QM2 is 3.5 times the size of the Titanic

·        If stood on her end, QM2 would be 40m higher than the top of the 305m-high



·        QM2 boasts 1017 cabins – or almost double the number of rooms at the new-look Hilton Sydney - making her one of the world’s largest ‘hotels’

·        Both Cunard liners were christened by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II

·        QM2’s whistle – is the original whistle from the first Queen Mary – it can be heard up to 16km away

Annual tea consumption onboard QM2 would fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool

The fireworks were as usual spectacular and the kids had a an unreal time!I

I have a photo collage I took over 100 pics so I had to narrow it down :0)
