I got roses!

Yep, amazing but true. Rohan came home on Friday night with a bunch of funky orange roses, telling me they reminded him of Kiti Q - he he - that just cracks me up! But the thought is lovely, and it was a fab surprise.

We had a very family sort of afternoon yesterday, in the garden. Rohan and Alannah have prepared a bed for a veggie patch, and Jude and I started weeding the front garden bed. Our lavenders are starting to bloom, and the orange mexican blossoms are almost ready too...and already smell divine. Will post a picture when they are all in bloom, cos it's one of the best bits of my house. We also all planted some new flowers in the front garden bed, the annuals, so we'll have marigolds, snapdragons (one of my favs!), pansies, alyssum and lobelia. Can't wait to see them flower - I LOVE Spring!

Had a fab day on Friday with Danielle. We decided to ignore housework and scrap, which is great fun! LOL. Dan worked on her funky family mini album, and I did this layout of Jude, which is based on a 12"x12" chipboard sheet. Now here I will admit to being inspired by the talented Karen Day, who has used the chipboard as the base for a couple of layouts on her blog, and I just loved the look, so had a go at it myself. I actually really love the look - Thanks for the inspiration Karen!


This next layout is for the 1,2,3 Challenge Blog Cybercrop, which started on Friday night and runs until the end of the month - isn't that great!! This is for challenge 2, which is to use an altered photo, paint and rub-ons. The paint is actually the pink in the bracket and the 'O's. So, if you are looking for some inspiration or a project to do, why not check out this blog (listed in the sidebar) as it's good fun and there are some fun prizes up for grabs. International entries welcome too!


Some other cool news - I won a cybercrop challenge over at Scrap Therapy for my layout "Chick Flicks". I've got a $15 voucher to spend - woo hoo - thanks Nat!

Umm, I think that's about it for the moment - he he - if you've lasted this long :-P

Enjoy your Sunday!
