It is just the shaped PP. the white background is from the scanner.
we have had 30mm of rain up until lunchtime today. I declare it break of season. and on time too.
traditionally we like it to rain by Anzac Day, start seeding by what was May long weekend (1st weekend) and finish by about June long weekend. Well that's the theory anyway.
have been slowly transferring some data across to the lappy. ie, all my PS actions, brushes, overlays etc, my photos and anything else I can think of. LOL its all scrapping related at this stage.
*insert roll eyes*
ps. do not install the windows service pack 3 for XP. it sucks. i have had heaps of problems since then that i am ironing out.

Presented by Annie
We had Modra's over for tea last night. All very impromptu. So we had Panini's with choice of fillings for tea and Quandong Pie for dessert. (Kym's signature dessert).
A candle was lit, the singing was done and the pie disappeared.
Happy Birthday darl. And lots more to you.
Tiff Sawyer is a scrapping steamroller. Go check her out. I dont think she sleeps much. She is riding a creative wave atm and is being recognized for her work. She sent some blog love my way.
mwah to you Tiff. Enjoy the ride. You deserve it.
Now I need to nominate 5 blogs who make me smile.
1. Mel. This is one chick who is into detail. And is a TwiddleBitz designer. And is a great forum buddy. And I will hopefully meet irl later this year.
2. House of 3. While this is not a blog it deserves recognition. I am inspired. This www is chock full of motivation, ideas and energy.
3. Escape2Create This may seem a bit biased as I am co-author but I do LOVE being part of this blog. We have a great bunch of girls in our area who scrap and choose to show their work via this blog. And I feel Privileged. I have made some deeply wonderful friends and I have been invited into many homes because of this blog. So I definitely share this award to e2c for the friendships that have grown and the love of a passion that is shared.
That will do for the moment.

once I have this mess cleaned up I have promised myself to unpack my new best friend out of the box.
I was so close to going to Mac. I sat down and weighed up pros and cons. If I went Mac it was for purely selfish reasons. that's the plain bald truth. And as the desktop is Windows it would be a bit silly to have 2 different systems to try to communicate with each other. So logic said Windows is the go.
would still like a Mac. maybe next time the desktop needs replacing I have another good look at it. (sigh)
Val, Sue, Meredith, Amanda and I had a most scrumy dinner last night at the Tumby pub last night with a bottle or two or three...... of yummy white wine. The e2c retreat guests all pooled in and gave us an envelope of cash to thank us for putting together the retreat.
So thank you ladies. We had a great dinner, cold wine and good company. All because of you.

Journaling says: Hey Annie. While you were down the front in the 'mosh pit' dancing and singing your butt off, Mum was flat out chasing Sean who was intent on climbing up the auditorium stairs for the whole show.

The train uncoupled and using sets of tracks, did a three point turn to recouple on the other end of the carriages.
21 Volunteers were on duty that day. Each coach had a 'coach captain'.
So well organised and professionally run.
I am very impressed.
rocked to sleep.
all in all with a Easter Egg hunt today with Granny in the garden here (second shot at getting some pics LOL) the kids would have had 4 goes at it.

Paige had a special year with us in 2007. I should really say that we had a special year with Paige.
I made this Heidi Swapp mirror book for Paige chock full of pics of her and my family from that year. Just a little reminder that we love her very much and with her we have 5 people in our family.
She received it in the mail today so now I can reveal it on here ;). I don't have any pics of the inside of it, just the cover. As its Paige's gift meant for her, it felt wrong to show you whats inside it. So when she lets me know, it pop her FB link on here with any pics she may reveal.
(lol. me with my 'bed' hair)
