Back shortly with a proper update

Now besides going to spend a day with the fabulous Heidi this week at create 08, which by the way was FANTASTIC.. caught up with alot of the old dollies and Cherie which was great...but more on that later. I have just noticed that this weeks Weekend Inspiration over at the Aussie Scrap Source blog is all about Heidi Swapp products.

Go and check it out because A) the DT have done some beautiful layouts using Heidi Swapp products but B) they also feature one of MY layouts called cousins.

I was so pleased when they asked a couple of months ago if they could use it, when they featured Heidi's products on the BLOG and even more excited tonight to see it actually up there.

So enough of my bragging.

Life has been super super busy lately so I will be back shortly to update properly about the happenings in the O'Connor household. So I will pre warn you that it will be a lengthy one.

I'll leave you with a photo I have just pinched from Wendy's Blog taken last Tuesday of Willisa, me, Heidi and Wendy. Notice how we all coordinate with Heidi. Gotta love that.

CCG # 98

Last weeks colour theme was - moccasin - cool copper - dewy green/blue - bistre (aka chocolate). Certainly not colours I would normally think to put together, however once I started collecting it all started to come together. If you want to check out the website click here.

I decided this layout would be 8 1/2 x 11 and I would go down the keep it simple path. I'm always inspired by Belinda Venables work and love how amazing her work is. This week I used more photos of my gorgeous great niece Charlie from back in July when we visited her on the Gold Coast.

Bathtime Fun: PP: Sassfrass Lass, Scenic Route, Autumn leaves & Basic Grey- Alpha: American Craft and MM, Accents: American Craft felt flower, Junkitz brad, 7gypsies sticker and Scenic route journalling sticker, machine stitching.

5 more sleeps until the Twilight preview. Both Madeleine and I are excited by that, her friend Alex is coming along and my friends Lynne and Wendy and also my sister and her two girls. After that it will be under 10 days until create 08 with Heidi Swapp. Then of course after that under 10 sleeps until the big one Christmas.Phew!!! so much excitement, I don't know whether I'll make it through. Seriously where has this year gone????

Madeleine officially finished Year 7 today and is now on holidays, although she still has to go over the next 2 days for Band practice. Presentation night is on Thursday evening and the band is playing, so they are having two days of practise, much to her disgust. (hehe)

Cheers for now
