the man in the red suit is almost here.....

oh i am getting a tad excited .... only a few more sleeps and then we can unleash mayhem and destruction throughout the house... all that wrapping paper flying around as the peeps rip open their gifts... and i have my camera lens back from its restful holiday in melbourne... all ready to go to work on Friday morn...can't wait.

After the flurry of October and November ... we got to December.... and miss chicken's celebrations for the end of Year 7 got into full swing. At this point i am feeling sad and bloody old... how did she get to there so quick... definately another blink moment.

We had the Presentation Awards night - was a great night to see all of her peers get recognized for all their hard work. My niece even won an award... that was a tad exciting. The following week was the Year 7 dinner dance. In true "Tracey style" - i thought i would be cool to get her dress done in the time frame i had left myself... well...... the day before the formal it was almost finsihed - but deep in my thoughts was - she is not going to like it - its going to be too gathered & puffy and sure as sure can be ... it was... so on the morning of the dinner dance... i pulled it all apart and started from scratch... but by 4.45pm that afternoon i had one very happy and beaming tween....

So school holidays are well and truly under way... i have had Sarah and her boys come visit for a weekend ... we got to scrap a little and chat... was a nice laid back weekend. Yesterday we had a few of the School friends over to catch up and have a craft day.. was nice to catch up with them all before the guy in the suit pops in.

On the creating front... i have some more layouts over at A2Z up ... julie has some nice new scraplets on for sale and also is running a sketch challenge comp on her blog - you can check it out here....http://www.a2zscraplets.typepad.com/

Make sure you pop over to Scrap N Craft with T where Tanyah has something going on everday at her blog. And check out her shop for some great bargains... shhh... i have an order coming... can't wait for my new inks to get here for some creative play...

ciao for now
