layout from the 2nd prompt of pretty paper party

this is the layout from the 2nd prompt of Shimelles new class pretty paper party, it's a layout using all patterned papers.

I am having a mini break from work

So far I haven't done a thing.
We woke up this morning about 4 am we both heard a noise from the kitchen. I thought it was just the fridge or freezer making a noise then we heard something else.... Dave and Kelly went to investigate and went outside as well, nothing.. then heard it again and I realised it was the insect repellant squirting like it does every 20 minutes or so.. oops back to sleep.

Pretty Paper Party

My first layout for this class and my first 12 x 12 layout in months!!!!!!!!!!!!
I used some scraps from a kit that I have already done 4 layouts from and the tags were from a swap in 2006, the letters are years old too so WOW I am pleased I am using up my stash

a photo update

Shane went to a fancy dress party as the hulk, He wouldn't do the arm crunch thing for me though
Poor Brad had his wisdom teeth out last Friday, he was very brave posing for me. It was such a long day, he was second on the surgeons list to start at 12.30 but he didn't get anywhere near the theatre till 3, then out of recovery at 6. Poor bugger was starving, he had never gone that long without food before(his words). Then when he could finally eat he could only manage two little yoghurts, he was shattered.
We left home for the hospital at 10 a.m and got home at 9.45 pm. What a day!!

Pretty Paper Party

Ok I couldn't work out how to get the pretty picture here but I will do the first post

Before we begin the party we were asked to take a pic of our paper stash, well this is only part of mine. The fist one is my scraps, yes sorted into colours and kept in 12 x 12 ziplock bags and also in the second shot is my forst bag of papers. When I started scrapping I bought this file bag and never thought I would fill it..... I looked in it today and no I didn't get rid of any papers but I will not be buying anymore until I use a lot of them.
The 3rd pic is my rolling tote, that got broken in the move recently , it has all my christmas papers and a whole lot of other paper that I need to use up. I did go through this bag this morning and got rid of some that I don't like anymore.

Out in the garage is my work in progress folder and a big pizza bx of Basic Grey page kits as well....
Hello my name is Lianne and I am a paperholic!!!!!!!!!!
I haven't bought any scrap stuff for a few months and I will not be buying anything new other than bazzill and glue and stuff like that until my stash is a lot smaller........

So now that LSNED is finishing up, I've been looking for a new blogging project to take me through October.

I recently came across this blog list on Di Bassnets and thought I might be something fun to do. All you need do, is a blog post each day for thirty days based on the following...

Day 1 – A photo of yourself and a description of how your day was.
Day 2 – A photo of something you ate today.
Day 3 – Your idea of the perfect first date.
Day 4 – Your favourite photograph of your best friend.
Day 5 – A photo of yourself two years ago.
Day 6 – A photo of an animal you’d love to keep as a pet.
Day 7 – Your dream wedding.
Day 8 – A song to match your mood.
Day 9 – A photo of the item you last purchased.
Day 10 – A photo of your favourite place to eat.
Day 11 – What’s in your makeup bag?
Day 12 – A photograph of the town you live in.
Day 13 – Your favourite musician and why?
Day 14 – A TV show you’re currently addicted to.
Day 15 – Something you don’t leave the house without.
Day 16 – Your celebrity crush.
Day 17 – A photo of you and your family.
Day 18 – Something you crave a lot.
Day 19 – Another picture of yourself.
Day 20 – The meaning behind your blog name.
Day 21 – A photo of something that makes you happy.
Day 22 – A letter to someone who has hurt you recently.
Day 23 – 15 facts about you.
Day 24 – A photo of something that means a lot to you.
Day 25 – What’s in your handbag?
Day 26 – A photo of somewhere you’ve been to.
Day 27 – A picture of you last year and now and how have you changed since then?
Day 28 – Your favourite movie.
Day 29 – Something you could never get tired of doing.
Day 30 – A photograph of yourself today + three good things that have happened in the past 30 days

Seems like it might be fun! Anyone else want to play along with me? Link your blog at the bottom of this thread and I'll pop over and encourage you too.

I am back

we have moved and are settled in to the new house I have continued the LSNED in my diary so will add them all here

20/My signature is to use flowers and buttons. My signature style would be my handbags and shoes.

21/Today I thought about regrets- I don't have regrets so much as I don't rush into things willy nilly, thogh sometimes my mouth does. I think I am in a good place at the moment so I have no regrets.

22/Spring is the time for new beginnings, which is what we are doing by moving house. I will miss some of my neighbours in Keerong Ave but look forward to making new friends in Thurston Cres.

23/Today I learned not to forget that Dave gets stressed the same as I do.

24/ Today I learned that our friends are great in helping us move, Chris and Skye just kept going with us.

25/ Today I learned that Brad is silly in a good way and very helpful as well.

26/Today Ilearned that my new kitchen is not as big as it looks, although I am down two big cupboards I still need to cull a lot of stuff.

27/ Today I learned that I am a very poor housewife! I will never let any house that I live in get so mucky. Skye and I spent hours scrubbing 8 years of dirt and dust.

28Today I leanred that I am not perfect... well I knew that but I made so many silly mistakes at work today, I survived

29/ Today I learned that I need to leave 5 minutes earlier for work now

30/Today I learned that teeth are very expensive and health funds don't reimburse nearly enough.

1st/ Today I committed myself to stil adding daily entries to my diary and hopefully keep my blog up to date.
