Some pages from various scrapping events ...

On Saturday the 17th April I went to a crop day in Belgrave with the girls from Bons. This was Charm's last crop before she moved to Mount Gambier so I really wanted to be there. I found out Leonie, from Bons lives around the corner from me so we travelled up together.....was a great night! Love these girls, great company to scrap with :o)

All us girls

Then last saturday I went to 'Crop for a Cause' run by Mel, this was a fundraiser for Breast Cancer.....a turn out of around 80-90 people, it was incredible....This was my first 'Crop for a Cause' I had a great time - though unfortunately I did more chatting than scrapping :oP

In other news-



* Clints surprise 30th went off pretty well - I was a bit of a bundle of nerves on the day! Clint seemed to enjoy himself a lot so thats the main thing of course :o)



*umm....what else? I spent most of last sunday organising my scrapping supplies into one of these babies ......

A gorgeous clip it up! Took so long to organise all my goodies onto it but once done, its perfect! The Crop for a Cause I went to I actually put the cover on it and took it with me, it saved a lot of hastle thats for sure :o) I will post of a pic of my scrap space soon, all my photos are on my iphone.

* We finally got out shipping boxes from London, these were posted late November, so it has taken 5 months to get here, it was so much fun to open and see all our goodies, souveniers, my school stuff, scrapping stuff, books, clothes and accessories, etc.


* We are talking about getting a new laptop, we have a HP which we got in London, it is pretty much nearly dead, recently even it has had a couple of keys broken on it - thanks Clint :o), haha. We are looking into getting a MAC and have heard such good things about it, if anyone has one I would love to hear your reasons for buying one and why you think it is better than a pc.

* Anzac Day yesterday....hard to believe it has been two years since we were at Anzac Cove ourselves.

A big day of reminiscing yesterday for me....some pictures from our trip to Gallipoli-







Lest We Forget.....



Take care, xox
