So busy!

But it's that time of the year I suppose :( Cant wait for Christmas, going to be sooooo much fun!

I haven't scrapped in a while, just cant scrap. Even the lure of some gorgeous lace cardstock from KitiQ isnt working. Hopefully tonight!

I have some Christmas DT work to finish off. Maybe I'm all Christmased out, and thats why I cant scrap anything else LOL

We have been the house of ill lately. Aodhan had gastro, then he came down with a virus and is still fighing high temps everyday. Glenn has the virus now too, and Ciara has conjunctivitis. So not only have I been a nurse at work, but at home too LOL. I am really thankful for the medical knowledge I do have though, it makes me cope so much better when they are sick. Doesn't make it any nicer of course, but I feel in control.....most of the time PMSL

On the work front I am going to be working 1 full day and 2 half days next year. The kids will be going into child care. I am looking forward to it :)

Now, I dont know what I have and havent shared scrapping wise, so I will share the layouts I did as guest DT for Bella! today.

I was given the celebrate papers and embelishments, and I must say I was VERY impressed! Nice and bright and happy papers :)

We have a Christmas break-up every friday night for the next two weeks. Next friday is my works celebration, and we will be going to the Titanic theatre restaurant. Both Glenn and I have been before, but I am really looking forward to it as it is a great night! And Glenn's break up is the following week, at the Italian Club, so should be a good night too.

Thats where I have been for the past few days, at the paper and craft festival.

I had an absolute ball! Finally got to meet Sharryn, and see Chrissy again.

On the Thursday evening, I met up with Sonia, Michelle, Louise and Paula from Forever Always. What a gorgeous bunch of ladies. It was wonderful to meet them all, they made me feel so welcome and as though I had known them forever :). I have my fingers crossed that I am going to be able to go back up in Feb and go the the FA retreat :)

I stayed Thursday night in Penrith, and met up with Chrissy at the trade event. I took a couple of pages to the Bella! booth, for them to display. I wont share them just yet, as they will be going up on the Bella! blog :). Sharryn arrived at about 3:30, and we went over to the retail show for a bit of shopping! OMG, there were some yummies over there. Then we popped back over to the trade event.

After grabbing a quick but delicious chicken schnitzel at Panthers, we went back to our hotel and had a few drinks, and chatted....until 3AM!!!!!!! The three of us just clicked, and it was great! It's a pity we live so far apart, cos I could definately see myself spending lots of time with these two gorgeous girls!
Cant wait to scrap this pic, will be off to Kmart tomorrow to print it as my ink has run out :(
I have scrapped a few pages tonight with some of my new goodies, will take a pic and upload tomorrow....yeah right LOL, soon anyway ;)

Last month was my last with the scrap N crazy design team. I had so much fun and met heaps of wonderful girls on the forum there.

I was given some yummy paper trunk papers to play with.

I loved using them, they were almost luxurious, and I really liked using my gold ink on them. Has everyone seen and tried the Bella! inks? I LOVE them! They have the BEST colours!

We were given a theme to scrap to, friendship. So my first page was scrapped for a friend. This is Jorja, isnt she gorgeous! I might scrap this pic again though, not too happy with how this one turned out.

This is me and my best friend Narelle, she is about to have her first baby any day now :)

And this is Chrissy and I in Melbourne after paperiffic! Dont look too closely st me, I look like a stunned mullet LOL. LOVE this page though :)
So thats what I have been doing. I have also been working pretty much flat out, but that has calmed down a bit now.
Another little piece of news is that I finally cracked scrapbook creations :) They wanted 2 LO's but could only have one as the other has already been published :)
So stay tuned for the Bella pages on the blog, and also for some very exciting news ;)
