My Life an update

So I haven't been updating much more than the occasional lo so I wanted to update you on what's been going on in my busy little life :

*Been scrapping regularly but at a VERY slow pace
*went to a Bon Jovi concert
*Got tickets to go see Meat Loaf
*Did NOT go to Kylie :(
*actually watched 2 whole euro soccer matches
*And how could I not share out that Michael got his 2nd swimming diploma (B) and for some miracle he changed his mind and will be going for his C
*Colin who only recently started judo got his yellow badge, totally unexpected !
*caught up on EVERYTHING from Greys Anatomy
*Started watching Army Wives online
*Went shopping with DH and he actually bought clothes (ok 2 items but hey who's complaining)
Been buying a few cute outfits here and there
*Discovered the BESTEST brand Sally Hansen (nails, hands & feet) and boy do I recommend her creams for hands & feet !!
*jogged and went to the gym
*Enjoyed a BBQ to celebrate 2 colleagues graduation
*Had fun @ 2 peanutball tournaments
*Had dates with Revlie, Daphne & Flo no time for scrapping though just tea and cookies
*Went to Derek Ogilvie, wow he's a charming & funny guy
*Missed 2 weddings due to a logistical problem and a tummy bug
*Went for a retailers day to take mini workshops from Donna Downey, Lance Anderson (Rusty Pickle), Layle Koncar (Scenic Route), Jeannie Jamovich (Making Memories), Jennifer Moody (Deluxe Designs) and Karen Burniston.

*Update my playlists on I'll share some of those lists with you in the future

*I won a scrap collection pack from Scenic Route and RAK from Hambley this month YAY lucky me !!
*Bought a trampoline for the boys (sssshhhh don't tell they won't see it till after our trip to disney)
*Getting my garden into shape, looking fun and comfy for the summer, will share some pics when it's done
*Watched more movies; Just Like Heaven, Stardust, Transformers (wow) and ehm the other one I can't remember so that probably wasn't that good LOL.
*Oh and I think we had a few kiddieparties that we went to here and there

So my mom is going to the states next month and I'm making a list what she needs to bring back for me, so far I've put this on the list:
A pair of basic UGGs
A pink baseball glove :D
THE martha stewart scalopped punch
A McGill tab punch (the round tab)

Anything else I should put on the list ?

We're going to Disney next week for a couple of days (well 5 to be exact) so we've organised a house sitter and hopefully a house painter too. The boys (and us 2 big ones) are so psyched we can't wait. Now everyone is amazed we are going for so long but this way we can see everything and do everything in a relaxed pace and more than once (or twice) if we want to :D
Now all I have to do is prepare my packing list and do shopping for it ...

Can I bring anyone back anything from the Magic Kingdom ? Some fairydust maybe :D

Dutch Dare & Altered lo

Our new Dutch Dare is up and it's all about "Crazy" and being so into something. Since the boys are pretty crazy about watching tv I have a lo about that, I cheated a bit as I've been working on this lo for a while (nov. '07 - june '08 .....) but couldn't finish it for some mojo reason and when the dare was thought up I immediatly thought this one would be perfect for it and finally finished it ;

Also I changed my previous Dutch Dare as it wasn't done in my opinion.

New version:

Old version:

Liking the new version much better !

Dutch Dare # 41 is online

I'm back, been pretty ill very bad case of the stomach flu :( and lot's of stuff going on I will share soon BUT I'm only making a quickie post to share this LO for the current Dutch Dare we're @ #41 already.... it's all about dutch weather.

Here's my take, that due to time issues might need to be finished by adding a little something something on the left (well it's that or I will chop off a little bit on that side) of the lace. Can't decide yet ..... Well I don't think it needs any additional info, the title, pic and journaling says it all really LOL.

If you have the time we would love it if you could join in and play along with us !
