The End Of An Affair

Yep its over! this long term affair I have had for many years, is soon to end. The nights where I have snuck out, and the weekends away. The moments where I have been lost in the passion and also the times I have been happy to just sit and chat, is all about to come to an end.

Scrappers Heaven is closing down! ARRRRGGGHHHHH

This little quaint and cute store owned by Natalie, Val and Heather, 3 amazing ladies  is closing on the 27th of this month. :(

If it wasn't for this little store I don't think I would of continued with this amazing craft of scrapbooking I enjoy today. I would also like to thank  these wonderful ladies for giving me the chance to teach and show off my work. I loved every single lesson, from the beginners to school holiday programs with 12 - 15 excited giggling girls and the just the chance to share my ideas with fellow scrappers. Over the years thanks to Scrappers Heaven I have meet some amazing ladies that also enjoy this amazing craft of scrapbooking, and made some wonderful friendships.
I know that these beautiful ladies have put their heart and souls into this wonderful store that sometimes I use to call home.You have given me two wonderful and side cracking retreats to remember.  I'm going to miss driving down the road for a piece of card stock or something more,  you know that missing bit to a layout and also a quick chat. I don't know how many times I would say to them don't print me a receipt otherwise Lance will find out how much money I'd have spend in there!

Girls you have giving me such great memories and helped me so much along the years, you have even help me through the hard times in my own personal life.

Oh and before I  go also like to shout out to Janet, another wonderful lady that worked for the girls. I would like to say that you have one of the most loving and kindest souls I have ever met and it was a pleasure working with you. xxxx

Its an end of an era, a end of a life style that I have wedge well into my heart and life. I will miss this part of my life I will miss our occasional retail affair.

Good Luck Ladies. xxxx

Yep we have another teenager in the house, so now there is a total of two.....oh boy here we go!!!!

Posing with one of your presents. 
I hope you enjoy reading this and it 
has all the facts you need when looking up and animal.
All the awesome stuff you got for your birthday so far .

Today is Zachary's 13th birthday, wow where has that time gone. I remember bringing home this little bundle of joy from hospital, and now I have this noisy, crazy kid! But I would not trade a single day having you in my life or in all of our lives for a matter of fact. Every day you bring a smile to our faces, with your awesome sence of humour, you also sometimes bring a headache to your mothers head, but hey I take a nurofen and tell you to use your inside voice and we move on...LOL.

WOW today you have reached teenage status how cool is that! I can't wait to start scrapping layouts about you and your teenage drama's and triumphs. I bet most of them will be about you not being able to complete some curtain game on the PlayStation or Wii. I know that your such an easy going kid that the bathroom issues with two girls in the house will not be and issue!

I hope you have had a great day Zac and that you enjoyed your mate Jesse staying last night for a sleep over, and the yummy dinner Dad is cooking for you right now, roast turkey roll, baked potatoes, caramelised sweet potatoes and cauliflower and broccoli bake, and your Banana caramel cake for dessert! WOW make sure you save me some!

Happy Birthday Zachary, I hope you have enjoyed your day! and that you enjoy your teenage hood.
Love Mum xxx

12 going on 21

Yep its Grace's 12th birthday! and this is a belated post for her birthday which was the 21st of last month. She had a great day with opening pressies in the morning before school, so Dad could see them. Then it was off to school armed with two containers  full of cupcakes for her class mates and friends. Then in the evening she had her favourite cooked meal, home-made cataloni, with salad and chips and and ice-ream birthday cake for desert and also a home-made marble cake that Dad made for her.

Opening Presents

Your first camera how cool!

All your cool stuff!

Yummy your marbled chocolate cake!

Feel the warmth from all those candles.
I think Dad is going to have to make a bigger cake 
next year.

We have been so busy here in the Cornish house hold. We have had two school excursions, heaps of band practice for both Zac and Grace. School winters sports with Grace (netball) also netball try outs for Grace. Grace also has had two band concerts, one was a tour to our school and another primary school, and the other was to play in fount of some parliamentary members that came to the girls school to open their new library and other buildings that have just been completed. We have been organising work experience for Shannon and also Shannon got his first job this week. YA! Congrats Shannon!
I have been in the full swing with my Active After School Sport (AASS) afternoons, we have just completed week 6 out of 9, and I'm having a blast and I think the kids are enjoying them too!

Well this is me for now, I hope all you fellow bloggers and blog readers have had a wonderful and fulling life as I have in the last few weeks  ;)
