Arrived in Germany

I have arrived a couple of days ago in Germany after a long flight and my body clock is slowly adjusting. It is great to see my parents and spend some time together. We don't see each other as often as I would like and sometimes I miss having them nearby. I would like to just pop over for a cup of coffee and say hello but that is not possible. So the time spent together is extra precious. It is difficult for the kids to not have me around for two weeks but they are getting older and handling it better every time, they have grown up with me leaving once or twice a year.
A tip for people traveling through Singapore Airport with a couple of hours to spare between flights...Massage parlors with Foot and Neck massages on offer are a great way to kill time and to relax between flights to get those tired bodies rejuvenated!

I will leave with a Layout that was done for a Feature on Filter Flowers for the Fancy Blog...check out what all the other girls have done with the versatile Filters!

Rainy Day

I hope you are all enjoying your Easter Break. It is rainy here today but that is a great excuse to get holed up in my craft room:) I'm getting ready to leave for Germany on Wednesday to visit my parents. It has only been 6 months since I went last but I look forward to spending some time with mum and dad. I usually only go once a year but mum hasn't been able to travel for a couple of years due to a bicycle accident so they weren't able to visit Australia as they usually do. She is getting better though and I'm hoping they can come to Australia early in 2012. Fingers crossed!
I have a million things to do before I leave so I have to run.
Here is a Layout done for Prima BAP April...enjoy the rest of Easter!

Happy Easter!

The long weekend has started for us and to celebrate I've had a two hour nap this afternoon! Steve and Max took off early this morning on a boys adventure to Cameron's Corner in the Simpson Desert (intersection of the New South Wales-Queensland border and New South Wales-South Australia border. This is an iconic location and the most remote location in outback New South Wales....just a little Geography lesson for my non-Australian blog readers:) They are driving a support vehicle for a motorbike rally. Max is only 8 and I think he will have the time of his life! That leaves me and Romy to have a quiet and girly Easter weekend which we very much look forward to! I'm intending to use this time for some crafting.
Talking about crafting I have another Fancy Pants Layout to show you, done with the 'It's the Little Things' collection...

I have also created a page for the Crate Paper April Sketch Challenge using their new 'Toy Box' and 'Neighborhood' collections, great for boy pages.

Happy Easter!

Quick update...

If you haven't checked out the new Fancy Pants releases yet now is the time! I have finished another Layout with the "To the Moon" collection and I can't believe how quickly my pages come together! I'm usually a rather slow scrapper and will procrastinate over every little detail but all the different embellishments in the new collections make it super easy to create. And in case you haven't got a little boy at home and have no idea what Beyblades are, they are a glorified spinning top!
Have a great weekend and Happy scrapping :)

Things that kids say...

Romy: "Mum, what happened to the car?"

Me: "I've cleaned it."

Yes, unfortunately my car sometimes gets to a stage where my children don't recognize it once it has been cleaned:)

School holidays have started and I love that it gives me so much time to play with paper and glue:)
Here is a Layout for the Sassafras sketch challenge and because I had the paper on my desk I made a card as well. I like having cards ready made and handy for any occasion.
I've used Copic Markers to color in the image and Distress Inks mixed with water and Liquid Pearls for the gras and the sky.
