{proud mum}

This week has been very busy with Class parties and School Presentations, it was not that long ago I was debating on if I should go to see Heidi Swapp which I so WANTED to do I hear she was of course fabulous.

But I knew that the date could clash with the kids school presentaion night so I did not want to take the chance and thank goodness I stayed, both Royce and Chelsea did very well, Royce is going into year 6 next year and decided to run for School Captain and guess what............................


School captain

  Royce was named the 2009 School Captain

We are so very very proud of him - and he is very proud of himself.....

Royce also recieved the Moster Maths Medal for his year - he was even more happy about this :0)



The Scrappingclearly newsletter have been great and lots of positive feed back has made it all worth while.

The Guest Designer spot is going great also anf the girls have been creating some awesome albums, if you are interested check out the guest designer link for me details.

I will add this weeks link in the next post...

The second game the boys played a very classy Sydney East side and where defeated, but played well.

Saturday of course was SPORT day - Royce headed to Junee, this under 11's team is an awesome little team very very hard to beat just good all over the paddock, the tigers put up a good fight but where no so lucky.

Chelsea and I headed to Cootamundra for soccer - Chels's team has not won a game all season but she loves it and has fun so that's all that matters, then of course I headed to Tumut for Hockey we are going great guns after beating the top of the table team last week we had another win, only not so good bit was I landed a hockey ball to the back of my head still a bit sore but not knocked out which is always a bonus :0).........

Saturday night I went to my great friend Sharon's 40th bday bash cocktails and cocktails and more cocktails we had an awseome night plenty of laughs with the girls -  and to my suprise no headache this morning besides from the hockey ball.

Today we just relaxed - Royce did his ball boy duties for the local first grade League team and the rest of us Tout's just cleaned up around the house - we move the rabbits to the new chook yard and they just love it, I think that tilly may be having kittens so that will be interesting, Imade Pumpkin Soup and it was Y U M M Y even if I do say so myself.

Well as usual lots and lots and lots :0)...........................

Last week Royce and Chelsea where flat out school with tests and athlectics. The carnival was supposed to be last Friday but it was washed out so now it is this Friday. This turned out great for us because Royce was to go to Union trials Friday and with the carnival postponed he was able to go.

So we headed off to Wagga on friday where Royce was on trial to be selcected for the Riverina Union Team and wouldn't you now it he made the team, wow he was so excited and I was so excited for him and so proud he was happy with himself.

We now travel to Nowra in August for the team to compete in the State Titles.

Chelsea is also been a busy little cheerleader practice practice and busy fundraising for her trip to Brisbane to dance in the National titles with her Dance Team and for the Tumut Titans Cheerleaders, I just love watching them groove they are so cute...... Bring it On BRISSY!!!!!

Scrappingclearly @ SIA

Well after months of planning and organising scrappingclearly made it the very first SIA Trade event to be held in Sydney.

With my car packed to the rafters I headed of Sydney Monday Morning, I met my mum and step dad Joe in Goulburn and headed the rest of the way with them to Homebush. After missing the turn off we finally made it to State Sports centre and our motel.

At around 2.00 we caught up with Alison and Lee and started unpacking the car to get ready to set up the booth. We had awesome help from the guys from Expo Hire and Jo too of course. Alison and Lee my mum and I put the finishing touches on and man I might be bias but the booth looked awesome :0).

I had a huge timber frame made and some swanky curtains, which I had seen and fell in love with on Tracey Keith's Blog. All of the scrapping clearly DT girls contibuted with DT acrylic frames and fabulous acrylic albums.

After a few hours setting up we headed out for tea with Lori and Georgie thanks for a great night girls and to you Georgie for taking us back to the motel. Lori gave me another acrylic album for the booth and O M G it was just AWESOME Lori you are one talented lady I love it -!!!! thank you so much.

Tuesday and Wednesday was spent chatting to some wonderful ladies, we had fun with the make and takes designed by Alison and all the ladies where just blown away with the girls albums. Lee almost overdosed on MUSK Sticks ( thought I would have to hide them from her) :0) .

Jen joined us on Tuesday night for the dinner and of course Jen's class was a hit - the class for the day and totally booked out, so many girls missed out :0(. You can see below why!!!!


My mum had the best time - joining in on all the booths make and takes, and she came home with so many beautiful projects.

Mum, Lee, Alison and Jen thank you all so much I really appreciate all of your help and I had the best time with you guys.

Also a huge thank you to all of my design team girls:

Alison Shearer, Nic Wright, Lee Woodside, Kelly Godwin, Sarah Youde, Jennifer Hall, Maree Clout, Michelle Grant, Lori Field, Belinda McGregor & Ngaire Bartlam - you guys are just awesome and your work is so very inspiring thank you so much.............
