Cockadoodledoo, how cute is this

Hello everyone...  Well, we are back from our little holiday, we had a lovely time, the kids had a ball. The resort we stayed at was fantastic, a total kid heaven, with huge water park, and kids club, so the kids were flat out from the time they got up, to the time they went to bed. We visited 'Dream world' and my son, Samuel talked me into going on the giant drop with him, OMG, I thought I was going to die :)  I have a fear of hights, and so should have known better. But, I survived, barely, and am very proud of myself for doing it. ( although I would have run a mile had I been able to get out of the harness thing)  I have a photo, so you will definately see a layout soon. The only downer of our holiday was, my husband and I, in our holiday mode, forgot we were 'lilly white' Victorians, and made the mistake of sitting on the beach at Surfers Paradise for a couple of hours, OMG, did we pay for it. We were both so badly sunburned, we are still getting over it. My legs were beyond red, they were purple :( 

A little reminder, my second givaway will be drawn in 5 days time. If you havnt done so already, become a follower of my blog, and leave me a nice comment to be in the running to win this:



OK, now on to a few shares. The latest release from Kaisercraft, called 'Cockadoodledoo' is so totally cute, and right up my alley, having a farm and lots of boys to scrap, its a perfect collection for me. I made these few projects for the November 'workshop' magazine from Kaisercraft. Its a free mag, full of great ideas, with step by step instructions. You can pick up a 'free' copy at any scrapbook store. This is what I made.....



Some more good news, I am returning for another term with Pencillines. And we are welcoming 5 new designers to the team. Two of them, Kerryn Lawson, and Camilla Ekman are my old buddies from my Kaisercraft DT time, so Im so happy to be working with them again. Call in to the Pencil Lines blog to see who else is on the team. I am also expecting my first DT package from ZVA to arrive in the mail any day, Im very excited, and cant wait to start playing.

Well, thats it from me, have a wonderful weekend. Thanks so much to everyone who calls in and takes time to leave me a message, im still having trouble with blogger, and cant leave messages on everyones blogs, but I do call in, and try to leave a message, sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesnt. grrr...
