...the rain that is! It has finally rained for the second time this year! Everything looks so much the better for it - the paddocks, the tanks, the crops AND most importantly, farmer hubby's demeanour... Even Diggy Dog looks happy! Yesterday I found these rainy day pictures from '06 that needed scrapping: And I also finished off Kate's Happy Thoughts mini album: She is a terible worry-wort, especially when trying to fall asleep - so this little album full of positive affirmations is made just for her. For all those who celebrate the 14th of Feb, Happy St Valentine's Day!! And thanks for passing through. xxx

Thanks to the lovely Jewels all the way from the US, I've been challenged to post the 6th photo out of the 6th folder of the My Pictures file in my computer. So here it is - and luckily not an embarrassing one! A cute flowery shot of Kate in '05 holding the most gorgeous peony that popped up in our (then new) garden quite unexpectedly. I took quite a few pics that day, and I remember the flies were SO bad (typical Inverell summer) and I had to edit them out! This particular shot didn't make the cull when I went to scrap them....you can see the finished LO below: I'm now supposed to pick 6 more people to tag...but since so many have already done this, I'm going to be a rebel and break all the rules and ask that the following people post the FIRST photo out of the FIRST folder from their My Pictures file....then select 6 more people to tag. So come on, Kylie Pip Jen Fiona Heather and Kathryn Do your thing!

...for their first class for 2009! I tell you - they are getting so talented! They are not going to need me at all soon. Wednesday night we did the same class I ran online at Scrapwitch in Dec/Jan - the layout of course, being based on one of Jen Hall's Octoberfest designs, but with all elements hand drawn and cut from good old cardstock. I'm so proud of their freehand scallops and doodling - you should see them - these days they just go for it without batting an eyelid! Once upon a time there would have been a chorus of moaning and grumbling... Here are the girls with their masterpieces: Gloria Libet & Trace Jane & Katrina Deb & Lisa H Lee & Lisa W Spent some time with the horses this morning - before the scorching heat hit. They were soooo dusty! Have made the decision to sell them both (sniff!) - it will be hard to see them go. Here's our spunky boy Rudolph: ...and the beautiful but snooty Hannah: Here's hoping we can find them nice new families to love. Must go and get my beauty sleep. Ta ta for now! xxx
