...well apparently its true!!...

1 July 2007

I am officially the newest member of the Scrapboxx Design Team !!

... I have big shoes to fill...and I hope I'm up to the job !!
BUT... Ill be giving it 100%...because it was only yesterday that I couldn't ever imagine being there.

Thanks so much to everyone for all their wonderful congratulation messages too...it means a lot to be accepted as part of the team... and as you all know...I'm a worry wart...so being accepted is a biggie for me...lol

....so last night was the Boxx birthday cybercrop..... what a fabulous night!!...I havent been in the chat room for literally ages...and it was FUN...with a capital F.
My head was spinning...the chat moved so fast...I had 20 different windows open across the bottom of my screen...and was totally worn out just keeping up with all the chat...let alone the private messages...the three msn conversations...the emails.... and my family in the lounge room at home.....

...so today I scrapped a layout for Janelles cybercrop challenge..... it was to "pick a subject and then journal a 'thing' for every year of their age...... so I chose myself...and this is my layout.... a 'bl##dy ' lot of journalling.... seeing as I'm getting bl##dy old!! ...lol

...other news.... Mitch has left on mini camping trip with some mates.... I am doing the usual worrying...will he be cold?... did he take toilet paper?... has he got a toothbrush?... what if it rains?....Ian just replies..."HE WILL BE FINE!!" ... so I hope he is!! ...and as Mitch will be away over my Birthday.... he gave me a cuddle this morning and said..."Mum...sorry Ill miss your birthday.... but Ill catch you a rabbit... if you like".... Mmm...nice Mitch... if its ok with you...I might just pass on the rabbit.

... big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my little Brother too... seeing as its his birthday today...Love you Dave xx

Ohh... two more night shifts... five more sleeps... four more days... and we are off on holidays!!!...to TASMANIA...........so look out Tassie!!

Mardi xx

    How fantabulous are you getting on the Scrapboxx DT :D I had no doubt that you would be on the DT sooner or later as your work is just awesome.
    I totally love your LO about you. I think you where the only one game enough to pick yourself as the subject...you did an amazing job...and as for being old "humnph!" I'm not that far behind you ;)
    I'm sure Mitch will be fin camping. Half the fun is getting wet and dirty isnn't it? LOL
    I envy you your trip to Tassie. I would so love to go there...do you think you would have room in your suitcase for me....please :D
    Have fun and take care

    PS: Silly me forgot to say in my last comment that's a great layout. Well done fitting on so many points. It looks terrific and it's such a nice photo.

    Wishing you a happy and safe holiday as you travel to Tassie. It's a lovely place to relax and take in the beauty of nature.

    We went there for our honeymoon and I loved it. It's so pretty there and a much slower pace than Sydney so it was very easy to relax down there I found.

    Take your warm clothes cause it's probably freezing this time of year. Enjoy yourselves and take care. From Susan (smiles1965) xxoo

  11. WOW WOW WOW That is awesome news..... you must be so excited.
