I've been Tagged

Charith at Life's hard...Get a Helmet tagged me. I adore her Changito cards.

So, I need to share 7 facts abt myself. Some wierd and some not....

The Facts are.....
1. I'm the older of four siblings.

2. Bromeliads, Clivias and White Kakabeak are my favourite plants.
3. I've been scrapping approx 7 - 8 years.
4. I've flown the shortest overseas route - Australia, Perth to Rottnest Island.

5. Outrageous Fortune is my favourite TV progamme. I grew up in Henderson - one suburb over, so it's pretty close to home hey! Cracks me up! Van and Munter are a hoot!
6. I love Mocha Coffee - instant, lol.
7. It's 2:18am as I type this.

I'm not sure if there's anything wierd in there - maybe the plane trip?

Changing Templates

Yep, got another one again. Gee whizz. A new member at The Crop Room told us where we could find the instructions on how to change our template to have three column's instead of the two. I can work it alright until the third instruction - what I get is "this window is trying to close" Lol. Back to the board but don't hold your breath. If you're a smarty and manage to get three column's please let me know what I'm doing wrong.

I've not been keeping up with the Olympics Comp at The Sketch Book. Have been real busy with work. Honestly I don't know how you ladies do it. Lara! I'm out of the house four days a week, yet I still have one full day at home - usually spent doing the house work after the other two are off at work and school. I know I won't get much done during school hols either. My sis is s'pose to be coming down from Auck with two of her kiddo's - Dd has been sleeping in the dining room since Feb (blushing smiley here) 'cos her room was undergoing a transformation...not. So her bdrm's got to be finished or we'll all be bunking in the lounge - nothing wrong with that though I guess huh? But add to the mix Dh having three weeks off work from the 6th Oct. Rrrgh.

Good news is that the ladies I crop with and I are getting together for our own little Scrap Pink. We have a breast cancer survivor amongst us! Last weekend of the school hols, scrapping for 12 hours and maybe a visit from a Stampin Up Demo in there somewhere. My sis might be there for that and I know she'll love it. It'll be her first crop she's ever been to. Whoo hoo.

Speaking of Cancer doesn't it just totally SUCK!
Man can send men to the moon but Man cannot find a cure for Cancer!! Ok so they have to find the cause first but so what I HATE CANCER!!!
Arlene, I'm thinking of you. You are an incredibly brave lady. There's so much sh*t you've gone through already and yet you and your sis still stand so strong. I know what they say - "God only sends what you can handle" But this is plain crazy. Love you my internet buddy.

Flourishes and Ribbon!
This is Krista's (an internet buddy hailing from the USA) younger daughter Jordon, taken by Krista. I love this pic, it's so friggen cool/different. If I had any talent drawing I'd having dancing crocodiles with this pic. I enjoyed this challenge and even though I was a bit worried abt the ribbon element it wasn't too hard since the Basic Grey Rubon was only 1 of 2 I had in my stash.
