how exhilarating..

not sure on the spelling, thinking that's how you spell exhilarating - oh well that will do me for now.... I just finished doing my fortune cards and am so happy ... things had been not so happy in this home with family passing and life just not seeming to slow down... well i am happy and that's because somewhere in the rush that is life i have found some balance for me...

I have heaps of volunteer stuff that i have to tackle over the next couple of days... but good things come to those who wait - that's my mantra today....

I decided to take a fly by the seat of your pants trip up to my lil' sis's house yesterday after the peeps had gym - you see my baby sis just turned 28--- so congrats to you my darling baby... i do hope we lightened your heart with our presence and you enjoyed our company - i love you and can't wait for your new little bundle to join our family...

Last Thursday i took part in the first SM cybercrop - the challenges were awesome - and i had fun in creating some fabulous layouts - well i think they are awesome... here is what i created:












I also took part in the free paper challenge but unfortunately my entry was withdrawn - so here is the entry - its my beautiful DD - i love how i have given her wings - i so love CS3... its an awesome program.


On Friday night i took part in the Stamp Shak cybercrop - another great chance to enhance the mojo rush that has been bottled within me for weeks...If you are looking for a great range of challenges you should take yourself over there for a bit of fun every now and again - chelle is a great host and there are some fabulous scrappers to boot - these are my entries for the three challenges - thanks girls i had a blast.



this next layout was for the September Challenge over at The Stamp Shak - i have had these photos since my dh painted our house - so glad the challenge made me actually put them to good use otherwise they could be still on my hard drive...

My beautiful children have enjoyed their holidays so far and i have more fun up my sleeve for them later this week....

I am looking forward to going to the Girls night in crop that Gypsyangel from scrapchat has organised - it is geared up to be a fabulous night for all and it will raise much needed funds to help with women's cancers.

I owe my beautiful and very talented friend donna an apology for not getting my digi pic up last week - i just needed to scrap - i truly did not even touch my camera except to photo layouts to upload to cyber challenges - sorry my love -- i promise to be extra good this week... and to scrapwitch - thank you for letting me talk your ear off tonight - i hope your little darling is okay and i will hear from you in a couple of days... take care.

night all - sorry my update has been a long time coming--- here is a poem i found while surfing -


If at the End by Sid Maxwell

If at the end of the day you know you've done your best,
Regardless of the outcomes you can peacefully rest.
For you can’t control the results of anything you do,
But if you know you've done your best,
to yourself you've been true.
okes till next time - keep safe and smiling - and i hope that mo keeps jo going in this household
