... and we interrupt this to return to normal programing ...

Yes believe it or not Telstra has actually come through for a change - sorry Telstra but you really do leave a lot to be desired for us country customers - and I have a brand new modem. What was supposed to be at least a week with no internet turned out to be a few days which is awesome news for me!!!! Here I was thinking that I would be lost in a deep black hole of no technology forever (ok a little over-dramatic but for a moment, I thought the world was coming to an end hehehehehehe).
Modem arrived this afternoon and was very quickly installed. Weekly swim club interrupted my progress so I am only just getting back to reinstalling now.
It was a busy weekend on the scrap front - 4 layouts which for me is lots of scrapping at once. Yes I know that I will never win any prizes for the speed of my scrapbooking but at least it is 4 more pages done.
Layout One: Mitch and Lach's new school shoes for the 2011 school year (well hopefully they will last a semester. Both boys have large feet for their ages and I can tell I am going to be kept poor buying shoes for them. There is nothing better than pristine new school shoes:


Layout 2: Ready 2 go. I didn't think I was going to get the boys to cooperate long enough for me to get some 'nice' back-to-school photos. Not perfect in the professional sense, but they are perfect for me. The layout is based on this months Scrap the Girls sketch - yes I know it was for STG but when you don't have girls, you just have to make do LOL:

Layout 3: Simple scrapping is what I love best and there is nothing more simple than this LO:

Layout 4: This was a MAJOR cause for celebration - the arrival of my very first Scrapbook Savvy Monthly Kit AAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNDDDDDDDDDDDD it arrived within 2 days of me ordering it. Cannot get better service than that IMO. I ordered the 'We're Savvy' kit and I am totally stoked with its contents. I have only done one layout using the kit so far but have a few others planned - just need to find the time to do some scrapping:

Not a lot else to report - the start of the week has been very quiet, except for the exciting news that SM picked up one of my double layouts for publication - first time ever for a double!! Here's hoping the rest of the week stays quiet so I can squeeze some scrapping in somewhere.
Chat soon,

I love your pages, especially son shine! There was a Family Circus comic strip that I had pinned to the inside of my cabinet that showed the mom holding her baby boy and the dad saying the son was shining. Love it!

I think 4 layouts is awesome. I have done 2 so far this year.
Your layouts are lovely. I like your play on words with "sonshine".
