The easter Bunny visited our house, and DD woke up and proceeded to wake her brother at 4.30 because she was so excited she couldnt sleep. HMMMM. We finished our egg hunt at 5 am. Then Mummy marched them both back to bed. Hope your easter was fun.
We had a little gathering of friends and family who are scrapbookers at my house on Easter Saturday. We ate lasagne, and created for most of the day.
By the end of the day though, I had come to appreciate that wonderful quote: "Real friends know everything about you, and like you anyway."...So...here is a big MMMMWWWAAAA! to my beautiful friends. I love you all....even the absent one, Bin..who i miss terribly.
I have been trying to convince darling husband that a move away could be good for us...but...i couldnt leave my beautiful friends.
A big shout out to margie...who had her last scrap with us before her big Aussie adventure...you are brave girll....Im so excited for you.
So, my beautiful girl is growing up and into a fabulous artist.
This is her with her creation from easter saturday.
Its sooo pretty!! I asked her if i could have it in my art room..but...not allowed..Hmmph.LOL.But instead it takes pride of place in the family room.She has grown too fast. see the sepia photo behind her??(the one at the top) that photo was of her at 3 months..not that long ago. *sigh*
This is what i came up with that day....this photo was inspired by my special friend, Jillybean..... I finally scrapped it!!!
These were part of My design team Showcase this fornight for ShopandCrop...using one of the 5 new Basic grey ranges. This is ARCHAIC. how cool is this stuff???..and i have to give credit to my beautiful pal lisa for my crankysaurus title..LOL...

..So this is me at 36. Lots of wrinkles!!!
Bloody red hair.
A Wife. A Mum. A friend. A Scrapbooker. An Artist.A part time hairdresser, who still likes her job 80% of the time.A little wiser....unfortunately a little more cynical.a whole lot more vague.
Slightly worse hearing.Worse eyesight.
I am still married to the same man who can always make me laugh, and i like my wrinkles..( alittle)...and I love that I am a part of this beautiful community of Scrapbookers and life artists, and I finally feel like I fit in. I have reconnected with my artistic ablitities, and am learning all the time.
I have a job I love with Shop and crop..all i need now is to win the lotto so i can do this full time!!!
My kids are the very air I breathe and i am so proud of both of them.
Where am I headed??Who knows???I couldnt have planned to be here 10 years ago..so wherever destiny takes me...thats where I will go.
What about you??
I hope you have a safe and Happy Easter, and celebrate it however you believe to be the best way for you!!
And I will leave you with some of my Design Team Easter Layouts for Shop and crop....
For these i used the Daisy Ds "wonder Years" papers..and the rubon tape is to die for!!!
All I need now is a Dark Lindt bunny..and my easter is complete!!Love, Debxx

Ok..so here are my random?weird facts....
1.I met my husband in Highschool. In fact, he lived about 6 doors down from me for about 12 years of my life..and I wouldnt walk on the same side of the street cuz I thought he was scary!!LOL..
2.Music is a MAJOR part of my everyday life. Silence in our home is a rarity&My fave band is The Black Crowes.
3.I also have an INSANE pre-occupation with Tim Burton films.
4.I wanted to be a journalist as I was growing up..and even did a trial with the local newspaper...but I hated it ...I also wanted to go to Art school..but couldnt afford to go...so i became a hairdresser instead!!!
5.My nickname in Highschool was Hippy...now..my best friend calls me Roon.
6. I am happiest at home with my family just hangin out.
7.I dont do fashion. I do that which makes me feel good in. So... you may see me in a frock and workboots...or a tie dyed shirt and ripped jeans...but I will not wear thongs....and thats how it will always be.
