Yippee!!!!!!

Wow...I have just seen my very first publicated page....Its in Scrapbooking memories.....I never really thought it was one of my better pages...but...there you go, they wanted it...No complaints from me!!!! I was literally shaking and I couldn't wait til we payed for it to rip it out of its package...lol...Now I am waiting for 4 or 5 to see if they are going to publish them....The process is a very long one, so I have learnt to be patient after this first experience...Well..it was worth the wait, and my kids are pretty proud...and Maddie was hugging it, as she is the star of the page...lol...



Don't forget that Mad About Scrappin is having their Cybercrop this friday night...it's all about the 90's...that's the year I became a mum...and that decade I became a mum 5 times over...it was a busy year for me!!!

On a totally different subject....today I won my second match in the minor Singles bowls comp....I was pretty happy, as this is the first year I have tried it, in fact , tuesday was the first time I have played a singles game...lol....so my next game is Tuesday, I think, I am looking forward to it!!!

Okies...well, thats about it from me...no pages to show you as yet as I have been doing some dt stuff...not even a sneak peek!!! I have my challenge to do tonight too...mmmm....90's photos to drag out, not many of me as usual I am usually behind the camera....

Well...until next time, take care

you are my rainbow...


Well..i have been feeling a little uninspired of recent times...and yesterday I asked a friend to give me a title or phrase to inspire me...the phrase was winter weather wonderland...well...I had no photos to match that but went for the weathwer theme...I love this photo of my children. It is the first one of them altogether, the one taken shortly after the horrible period of our lives when we nearly lost the twins...It is a very special photo....It inspired me to write a short story of their journey...you can find the story in my precious miracles blog...OK..well enjoy your day/week...and take care until next time.
