Return to Blog Land

Yay, I'm back for real this time.....LOL
Took me longer than usual to get over the jet lag
- sign of age or what......LOL
This is a layout done recently (nothing new since
my return from Scotland yet)
of DGD # 1 Rebekah from Christmas last year.....



Bo Bunny papers.....




Gorgeous Prima flowers.....



Martha Stewart Round the Corner punch set
- Layered Arches.....


Kaiser pearls.....



Distressing.....



and inking......








Now to our holiday.....
What a trip.....
Dubai was wonderful - we LOVE Dubai.....
Photo's of that in a later post.......
But first, the most important photo's -
my THREE granddaughters TOGETHER
for the first time
- with their Granny......





DGD # 1 Rebekah, aged 4
DGD # 2 Erin, aged 2
DGD # 3 Emma, aged 17 mths
Granny, aged unmentionable....LOL


My goodness, was this a hard photo to get....
Rebekah was an angel, you can reason with a
four year old....LOL
But the little ones, my goodness, would they sit at peace,
would they look at the camera at the same time.....
Notice the crackers in the first photo
- blackmail.....LOL
These are the best two of about 50 shots
- whew, Grandchildren
- Gotta love 'em....
It was totally wonderful spending time with my Dad
and his partner Kate, we stayed with them
while we were home, sad to leave,
and my son and his wee gorgeous daughter
whom I hadn't seen since she was
two months old - she has turned into
a beautiful little girl.....
However, was glad to get back to the heat of Australia,
it's hot, hot, hot, here. I forgot how cold it
gets in Scotland, and it's only November.
I don't think I would survive
January and February back home now.......
Speaking to Dad on the phone tonight,
he says it started snowing yesterday
- quite glad it waited til we left -
don't miss the snow one little bit......
The latest Cricut Workshop for Scrappy Go Lucky
was today - will be posting the layouts and
cards on the Scrappy Go Lucky blog......

Meanwhile, back into my scrappy room.
The latest sketch is up at Stuck On U Sketches,
can't wait to play, was having
withdrawals while in Scotland.....
And, while I was away I missed Mr Linky for the
Stuck On U Sketches Autumn Mini Book Swap
that I took part in during Aug/Sept.
Will post the mini I made and the
one I received in the swap here soon......

Thanks for reading my ramblings,
if you've gotten this far....

Will 'talk' to you soon on your blogs.....
Hugs
Jane xx
