SCRAP-IT

Just a reminder

Scrap-it, is the closet Perth is getting to a scrapping convention for now, with a bonus, that the funds raised go to a great cause, research in Alzheimer's.
I'm off there this weekend,it's going to be a blast. Max, Mel and myself are staying at the venue the night before, arriving about midday to scrap the rest of the day and evening away in our hotel room. The idea came about from Lis a customer from work who is doing the same thing with her buddies,,,, I'm a bit excited!!!!!!!!!!
Scrap-it is on Sunday, maybe you can still book if you want to come.

Woohhooooooooo!!! roll on tomorrow, now off to pack.

I'll try take some pics and will share next week, Have a great weekend.

Award

I started this post earlier today but had a couple of interruption and had to save what I had done to return to it now. So those that visited because I left you a message on your blog and you got here and thought 'what the?', this is why I asked you to come.
I received this a couple of weeks ago and haven't had the time to do what was required once you received it, but here goes :0)
I often wonder who starts these types of things. How sweet.
There is nothing like the warm fuzzy feeling that someone likes what you do and that I do inspire others to create. Thanks Jode for this award.
Here's how it works.

I get inspiration from many, many more blogs, thank you all for sharing your creativity with me and everyone.

And I thought no one read my blog :0)

Thanks for all your loving support. I have had some lovely messages in regards to my last post. Liam is doing fine, we're keeping a close eye on him. He doesn't talk much about anything, even before the accident.


My three children are all so different to each other and Liam is the one thats not into affection (and that's ok) but he's getting kisses and hugs everyday whether he likes it or not LOL. I just tell him I need the cuddle. :0)

To Love and Be Loved is the greatest joy on Earth.



Thanks for all your lovely comments on my work.
We've had a couple of rough weeks in the Underwood house, but its on the mend now.
You often hear people say, you don't know what you have until you loose it. (or nearly loose it).
The Lord and the universe was looking down on us recently. My eldest boy Liam,
That's him on the right towering over his Dad.

was involved in a tragic accident a couple of weeks ago now, in my car. He had worked a days work and was heading to a volley ball match, when he collided with a motorbike at a traffic light intersection near home. Unfortunately the young motorcyclist was killed and my heart goes out to his Mother and the rest of his family and friends. We all had an agonising few days waiting to hear the out come of the accident and praise God, Liam was not at fault. This did make his burden a little lighter but it is still the loss of a young life and something he will have to live with for the rest of his life. We are keeping a close eye on our big boy and as much as he drives me absolutely batty at times my heart goes out to him too. It was hard to see him in the ambulance and in the emergency ward, a big wake up call for all of us. He is physically fine, thank goodness.
So give you kids a big hug and thank the universe for everything you have.

Sending love your way
Audrey. x
