First time EVER to fly ----> LOVE IT! I am already organizing a trip for the kids to go flying as I think they would love it to!!
First time to Melbourne ----> LOVED it!  A BIG THANKS go's to Wendy who made it such a  Joyous time....
First time for Me been away from the Family EVER ----> Did OK! I think
& I got to meet up with a couple of fellow Scrappers IRL (which is why I went in the first place) -----> LOVE IT & was the best part........
 Catching up with Kim Ewins which I only meet the weekend before & live like 1 hour away form this GORGEOUS girl...
THEN meeting IRL the EVER So TALENTED & SUPER LOVELY Georgia Heald! I did do 2 of Georgia's classes & she was just AWESOME Well I think she was anyways... LOL!
 I wish I had more time to sit & chat this this girl.... & also! got to sit & chat with the SUPER DOOPER LOVELY Cathy Cafun... WOW! what a Beautiful lady she is!! 

I have got photo's to share & will do as soon as I play catch with with a couple of blog posts!! I am now a little behind!!

Simple Pleasures

The Once Upon A Sketch Challenge 
Theme: "Its The Weekend!" 

now I know most if not all of you know of Once Upon A Sketch SO! I wont copy & paste some of the examples of be sure to click HERE for a direct link.....

part of our weekend is about sport &
since last Year Jason, Ethan  & sometimes Chloee are right into Archery... & is every second Sunday Jason, Ethan & Chloee most of the  head to Forbes to compete in Archery!
NOW! yeah sure I REALLY like that I get some ME time, BUT! it more about Jason getting that 1 on 1 with the kids & think this is Soooo Important!! 

Cause my Scraps Of Darkness Simple Pleasure kit didn't arrived in time I have used my Scrap Of Darkness January - Waterways kit

This washi tape, stamp & the Flourish dies are the only things not part of the kit....

The flourish die I have used is a Cheery Lynn Designs - Victorian Romance Flourish....

YEP! not a fan of my handwriting on my layouts.... SO! I have hid my journaling!!

NOW! I know I haven't been much of a good visitor as of late... hoping to find some time in the next couple of days & stop by & see what you have been up to...
Hope you all have a WONDERFUL day & THANKS for stopping by!!!
