Fingers flew up from Melbourne for the event and spent the weekend with us. The kids thought he was fantastic! They wouldn't leave him alone. Of course, Fingers now thinks he's the God of Radford Place and is thinking about starting his own cult as he already has 2 devotees lol.

Challenge 5 was set by Helen and not only did we have to make a card with a love them, gold and a heart, we also had to make an envelope from scratch! Can you tell I'm not really a cardie? lol.
Challenge 7 was only set yesterday by Tracy, and here it is already. It was to make a journal that we can record our challenges in. I had the day off work today (YAY me!) and spent the day at Belle's. We scrapped like demons!
Still have Challenge 6 to do to be up-to-date. I've tried 3 times, but each finished layout hasn't met the journalling strip criteria. I don't know why, but I am determined to do it this week.
I'm doing it 52 times this year... are you? Register and play at Little Scrapbook Shop.
Little Scrapbook Shop had their Cybercrop on the weekend and pulled together a Silent Auction in a matter of days.
There were 26 lots to bid on, each of them donated by some very generous people. When all was said and done.....

Last week Bellagirl challenged us to PUNCH ON and create a layout using our punches which have been in hiding.
I dusted off my retro flower punch, and here's what I did.
I took this photo of the kids with their new Summer friend, Joel, on holidays. Very cute.
Helen has just announced Challenge 5. A card, of course, which I am going to tackle this week.
She loves her new class, and her teacher, Mrs Reinert is one of the best. She's going to have a great year.
On Saturday Caitlin had to go to the dentist to have a tooth out. Do you want to know how it went?
From the minute she woke up, she carried on a treat... I seriously didn't think I was going to get her out the door, even though I said she could wear her favourite dress which is only for special occassions.
We finally made it just in time, and then she really turned it on. She was so stubborn. Tears. Yelling. The carry on was unbelievable.
Now, this kid has had 2 fillings and been to the dentist for her checkups and cleanings so she is familiar with what happens and the dentist, nurse and receptionist.
Anyway... Finally after many threats (of no lollies, ice cream, treats, etc. etc. ever again in her whole life), I got in the chair, and she laid on top of me! 2 seconds after she started breathing in that strawberry gas she was off her face and the dentist could have done anything he wanted to her.
Tooth out, tooth fairy been, all is good... now.
She has promised that next time we go to the dentist she is going to do it with grace and style! We shall see lol.
