Happy Monday!!!

Well it seems like an eternity since i was on here!! Firstly i would love to say thank you to all those who have left me lovely comments it really does make my day and i thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Okay so what has been happening in my neck of the woods??? We will not be getting any ducklings this year as she kept knocking them out of her nest and the male also kept trying to get to her ,we think, and has also knocked a few out..... but on a happy note fingers crossed our chickens will hatch next week. We did have to help one into this world prematurely and i pray he/she survives. Due to the duck not having any eggs we decided to segregate her from the clucky chooks but she kept ramraiding the barricade and pushed one of the chickens eggs out and cracked the egg but he/she came out chirping and no egg sac attached so we think it will survive. Fingers crossed because we need some more layers. We actually brought these back from our weekend trip and i learnt something new, an egg can be fertilised and kept at room temp until you are ready to put it under a chicken and they will still incubate!!! Our puppy is doing well and he had his first visit to the vet last week and i have been cooking my own dog food as well!! Who knew that i was still a farm girl at heart, lol. I think this has been the best move i have ever made i cannot see myself ever moving back into the big smoke!! Although i may just make an appearance or two just to pop in and visit my local scrapbook store every now and then! I tell you i feared all the stores were closed down in Mackay but i found one and can you believe she has been there for 28 years!!!! I mean she does other stuff not just scrapbooking but it is one of those shops that just gives you warm fuzzys. Why i had not found her sooner i do not know but i am happy i have!!!

Okay so i think i have done enough chit chat time to share what i have been doing. I have been scrapping alot but today i wanted to share a page i did for the September Prima Product Pick. I really love working with Prima. So you can either work with the products and/or the palette. Hers is this months PPP...


Here is my page, a little warped from all the misting and other mediums i have used. I do not generally work well with such masculine palettes but i love how it turned out in the end.  

So i am off to scrap some more and hopefully i will be back sooner rather than later. TFL!

Oooh I do love reading about your life in the country B-J! chooks and ducks and cooking your own dog food. Even though I'm a born and bred city girl, I wouldn't mind moving out from it but not too far out. I still need to pop into museums, shops and theatres when I want to. I think you did really so great with this page, no sign at all of any struggle with the masculine feel. Really so neat!! xoxo
