Beautiful like a rainbow..


Gotta give it up to Ngaire Bartlam. If you had asked me last week if I was beautiful..I would have laughed at you, and told you to but some glasses...but now, I think a little differently. When people look at you, they see just a face. My face may not be smooth and creamy, with perfectly proportioned bone structure,and creaseless eyes..but when people SEE you..they see the beauty of who you are as aperson, inside and out come shining through..Ngaire has helped me see that about myself. Thanks Ngaire,and all the lovely women who post athttp://scrapblogmebaby.typepad.com/beautiful/

thank you so much....you are all, as WE are all ...truly...Beautiful/

Dan Reed Network - Rainbow Child

This is the song my hubby played on our first date. This is MY song. I live by it..I want it at my funeral...it makes me feel beautiful. I love this song.

My Link List

...is missing for the moment. It hopefully will return when I work out how to make the Link actually work!!!Cheers!!!

A Belated Mothers'Day wish

Our little family would just like to say a special thank you to our Mums...and our Grandmother...these people are in our lives every day...and are always supportive, loving and caring.....We Love You!!!.....

and while we are on that subject:.........................a little food for thought......



...we need to tell the people we love, that we love them. ...We mustnt ever let it pass if the opportunity pops up. My family is my universe...and our friends...well, we always say.."you know who you are" ..but I guess sometimes they dont.



...Those people who inspire us...they should be told that too... so, I guess when I drop in to the same blog many times over,and leave comments..I COULD be accused for being a stalker..but ...LOL....same deal. Why not tell people you admire, you admire them.



Lord knows this world can be negative enough.... Share The Love..thats what I say!!!

This is my effort this week:

Missy Higgins - Steer

I LOVE this womans work...her words and music are like a patchwork quilt..small snippets of life from all over... but put together...something truly beautiful.......

A Little bit of Bling

Just want to 'shout out' to one of the most beautiful couples I know..this weekend they are celebrating the one month anniversary of their wedding....Happy Anniversary Brett and Marissa!!!Big Kiss!xxoo
This little LO happened when I came across my old highschool art diary..and this was a little 'piece' I started,...and never finished..but somehow..I love it just as it is.(Obviously though, the scrapbooky bit was added much much later...tee hee.




I do love a bit of bling...last weekend I joined in the Alison Ellis Cybercrop...one of the challenges was to use a bit of bling..this is what happened...and i was lucky enough to win a little prize too!!! Yay ME!!! (LOL)..it actually is a little band aid tin, and it holds all my Alison Ellis Artist Trading Cards from a swap we did....(see the link).
Ok..well time for this old girl to hit my studio..time to scrap...now that I have the whole Blog thing under control...(well enough for now anyhoo)...So,I bid you a fond farewell...adieu...

The Black Crowes - Blackberry
