    Some fun and some work and a layout or two......

    Well two posts in one day! Wonders never cease!

    OK Had a pretty busy day today, between popping in and out of Kate's new site, PickleBerryPop (Pop on over, I had a ball and met lots of new friends who are all amazingly talented!) We managed to dress up our front portico. It was supposed to be a temporary measure until we could get some decking done, but I really loved how it turned out and I think we might leave it like this for the long haul. The decking tiles are from Freedom and we filled the area around them with Black River Pebbles. Anyway, we are pretty chuffed with the effect.

    Also below is a pic of our new family room! I have been raving on about this rug for so long now, thought I'd better get a pic of it! When I saw this rug I knew that red would have to be the colour scheme, I am not usually a red person, but the richness and the texture, were screaming out "Lee, oick me, I will look beautiful in your new home" and I listened! LOL Now we just need to get some feature walls painted and some art on the walls to get rid of that sparse feeling!

    I feel so lucky to be in our dream home, and while it is no where near finished, it already feels like home and like we have been here forever. We should have our window furnishings in the next few weeks and also we are having someone come in and excavate the mudpit that is our backyard and get rid of all the clay and put some REAL soil in! Then we can think about getting our lawns growing and take advantage of the amazingly sunny days we are having (mind you it's pouring rain right now!)

    Now, please note how I have taken the family room pic! LOL I tried to get a magazine feel with the blurry figure Bronte, who is strategicallu placed to hide all the power cords!!) LOL Ah well, at least I should get points for trying! hehe

    Next are two of three layouts I have done this weekend (Yep it's all or nothing with me LOL)

    The first one, 'Maddie and Lachie', was done for a nifty little challenge at MAC digi, where every few weeks someone submits one pic and we all scrap it. It is such a delight to see the different styles and ideas that are in this group! I just love this challenge.

    OK I was gonna post another layout, but Blogger is in a mood, so I guess it will have to wait until my next post!

    I switched my day off to tomorrow as the girls have the day off for parent/teacher interviews, so we are off to the movies and then we may even have a Big Brother Finale party tomorrow night! LOL Oh I know it's sad, but any excuse!

    Go Camilla!
