And she can RUN.........

Well in an earlier post I told you all Chelsea had her very first age race at school. On Friday the Kinder and Year One had there Athletics Carnival and Chelsea came first in her heat and the First again in her 6 years girls final..... so she did run like the wind.

Chelsea was lucky enough to have both her great grandmothers and her great grandfather and her grandfather father all watching and they were all very proud indeed!

I've Been Tagged !!!

I've been tagged.... Ok so Lee has tagged me, so here it goes.

5 random thing about me.

1. I have been knocked out on several occasions - once I was climbing a Walnut tree at my Nan and Pops and fell and smashed all my two front teeth, the upside was that it was at Easter and the Easter bunny came to me at home and in Hospital :0), down side is that I still have trouble with my caps :0(.

2. I love to play sports - Touch Football in the summer and Hockey in the winter, hate to ever think what I will do when I am to old and fragile to play.

3. I have an older sister a younger sister and a younger brother, my parents are separated. I have an Aunty who is only five weekes older than me so we are like sisters, and I was lucky enough to have all of my great grandparents bar one my Great Nan on my mum's mothers side.

4. I won the Poddy calf ride at the local Rodeo and beat all the boys - (they were not impressed.

5. Two things make me just about physically sick Leeches I am terrifed of Leeches even the thought of them makes my skin crawl and Sambouka (not sure on the spelling) I drank so much one night that now I can't even eat, smell or look at licorice.

Ok Nic Wright consider yourself tagged. ;o)

This and That

Well our weekend started of with cold and wet weather Chels and my Hockey games were called of and Royce played. He has been busting all year for wet weather and on his last game that's what they had. The Tigers played the Temora Dragons the 1st round Temora beat us the 2nd round it was a draw and on Saturday we won 48-12, the boys played fantastic and has a team Royce scrored 2 tries and converted he was a happery camper. We then headed to the club for luunch it was good not to have a relaxing arvo. Chelsea had a friend stay for the night, they both had their last Ballet lessons before exams on Staurday arvo.

Well Monday arrived and Chelsea had her Ballet exam she looked so pretty, she came out all excited and said she remembered all her steps (phew). Now they will get their dance ready for the end of year concert.I will post the photo's soon mum.

Soon I am off to Wagga to take Chelsea over to be fitted for her flowergirl dress not only is she excited about this but because I am picking her up from school early, it is also giving me the chance to pick up a few things, I have a deb ball on at the weekend and I have scrapbooking classess in Wagga so I need some things for these also.

My scrap studio is again a DISGRACE I just can't seem to keep it clean, tonight I will clean it as there is no way I can prepare class stuff in such a mess. Last night I completed my pages for a CJ group that I am in as there are 18 of us I am trying to keep my pages no so lumpy bumpy and believe it for me this is quite hard.

SAD :0( BUT TRUE !!!!!

Okay girls the wait is over me - this morning I received my Masters back in the mail, yep normally I am happy to receive parcels in the mail but not today. It is quite stange the feeling get when your work comes back it is definetley a yucky feeling.

But I am quite surprised how well I have bounced back  - maybe because I also received a CJ in the mail and it has inspired me to keep on Scrapping or it could be for the fact that hey the big picture is I Scrap for me. Sure it would have been nice but it does not matter if I am a Master or not I am still going to scrap.

So good luck all your girls that still have not received yucky mail - my fingers are crossed for you all :0)!!!

Last night I also completed making my A - Z album I wanted to make my album from scratch so I used a technique that Fiona Carter displayed in last months SM using the twill tape and with a little guidance from Fiona herself here it is - a 8 x 8 album with lots of ribbon and the ABC charms hanging from the pins down the spine.... My theme is A - Z of  the Tout Family 2005, thought it would be great in years to come to pick up this album and have memories of 2005.....Az_album_cover I like it :0).

Well last week I decided to send of a little paperbag album to Maria at Scrapboxx as my entry for the new design team member, I have been wanting to make one for ages. I love the Scrapboxx especially because my friend Nic is also on the design team and I mean who does not love her work. Also Kim Archer and Julie Love are DT girls too and what they do is also fantastic- but sadly this morning I got the email to say thanks but you have not been chosen. Not to worry Alison Stafford is the new design team member so congratulations Ali.

Below is my cute little Album which is now proudly on Display in My Scrap Studio. I have only included some tags and mnot all the pages :0)

Ipod Shuffle

          Okay after wanting one forever :0) today I purchased an

Ipod Shuffle Check out all the great Ipod's here

The shuffle is smaller Ipod version an holds over 240 songs, lasts up to 12 hours and is only tiny, I love it 240 songs, a million different ways. The size is great for walking and I can't wait to test it out. Getting the songs onto the shuffle is so easy all you do is plug it into the USB port and place in your CD and tick which song you would like at import - easy pezy or you can also buy online. At the moment I have 56 songs added and still going, truly it is a great buy especially if you love listening to music while you exercise. I checked them out online but decided to but today at Harvey Norman's. Love Love Love it!!!!

Creative or not so Creative

Well girls - please take no offence 2 comments in this post in regards to Creative Memories, I know I know they were the beginning of our whole Scrapbooking world but PLEASE, out of good faith and for a dear friend I attended a Creative Memories party on Sunday. For me personnaly it was a total wasted day of great scrapbooking that could have been had at home. We payed $10.00 to do do two pages for that $10.00 we got the choice of two cardboard strips and two cardboard triangles, not very generous.

My pages are below and beileve me this is all I could do with what I was given, I added chalk to one of them and was told that I should not really be adding chalk :0 ( 

um naughty me!!!

Anyone it was a relief to get back to my beloved Scrap Studio lol & back to lumpy bumpy!!! bright pages.
