    ~Layout and Back Yard Blitz~

    :::A LAYOUT:::

    The layout on the left was done for a challenge we hold at MAC digi, where one of us supplies a pic and we all scrap it. I love seeing the diversity and talent in the group via this challenge. We are all so different in our styles and the way we approach scrapping a pic and I feel I learn something everytime.

    :::MAC Conference:::

    We are finally organised for our get together yay! I felt very guilty for throwing a spanner in the works, by getting Billy Joel Tickets, but it's all sorted now and we are going to have so much fun, I can't wait to meet these girls I consider good friends already! I am so sad for a few of our very special interstate and overseas members that can't make it, but maybe we can make it an annual event!

    :::NEW GARDEN:::

    Here it is!!!! These are the before, during and after pics of our own backyard (and frontyard) makeover. It was only 4.5 days work, done over about two weeks. The company that did it were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We had 9 trucks of dirt (mostly clay) taken and 11 trucks of soil brought in. They put in a sprinkler system in the front and back yards, put in garden beds, which are filled with pebbles now. We turfed a small section of the back yard, and the entire front yard and all the rest is seeded. We don't have any plants yet, but will save for some soon.


    We had our window coverings fitted yesterday, so that is the last major thing we were waiting on (thank goodness), the finances are stretched to breaking point, so I hope nothing unexpected crops up! Now we need to buckle down and get rid of this debt noose around our neck!

    :::CYBER HUG:::

    I have a special friend that is having a hard time at the moment, this is a special cyber hug to let her know she is valued as a friend and a great person and she is special to me. Hugs ;)

    Another beautiful layout Lee, you're very inspiring! Love the before-during-after shots, it's looking fantastic! Wish your landscapers could come here, we're on the lookout for a good recommendation, but it's probably a bit too far for them to travel! Great news about the window coverings, they really do give the final touch to a new house, and don't worry, you are not alone in the debt department!
