Almost Time

Just under a week to go before we leave for *S.A*.
The girls and I havn't been there in 4 years.
The boys have never ever been there.

So, lots of excitement over here these days :)

Especially since we're plannig on cramming loads of stuff into the 2 weeks and a bit we have there.
Like a few nights *here*, and a planned trip *here*,and lots and lots of visiting with family in *Durbs*...

On the way back to Canada, we're stopping in London for a few nights and days, to play tourist...and to visit with good friends and a few family members.

In the meanwhile I'm trying to pack, organise stuff and keep the short people entertained and flu-free (say that 15 times...lol)

Of course, I also got to scrap a bit.
How could I not, when a big box from "Upsy Daisy Designs",, featuring their 4 new lines, turned up at the house :)

Here's a peek...

Papers are from "Upsy Daisy Designs" new line " A New Day"

OKay,that's it for now...
Have a good one everybody :)

Hot!! Hot!! Hot!!

Summer is here for sure.
We've been seeing temps in the mid to higher 20's.
And that is HOT!

We're getting ready for our BEEEEEEG July vacation.
A bit of stress.
Lots of planning...
And more planning...

Now and then I stop
and do this...

(All papers and rub-ons are "Upsy Daisy Designs")

Off to crank up the AC...;)

Long time, peeps.
Lots been happening, and I sat down to update on more than one occassion and thought, "Meh..."...lol...you know how that works, right?

*Canadian Scrapbooker's Summer Issue* hit the stands on 1 June and I have 2 pages in there.

Here they are for those of you who don't get this mag in your neck of the woods:


...and they requested a page for their Fall issue too :):)

I havn't scrapbooked much lately, but tonight I'm cutting into some lurverly *Upsy Daisy*yumminess.
Did you know they have 4 new lines debuting this summer; complete with matching brads and stamps.
Yum! Yum! Yum!

On the homefront, we parted ways with our nanny. It was a case of us running into the same problems with her over and over for the entire 7 months. So we gave her two weeks to shape up or ship out, and she opted to ship out.
So, we're juggling again, but things seem a lot *nicer* without her around.

We started the paperwork to bring in a replacement, and this time we're being super picky during the interview period. So far we think we've found our lady...older and hopefully, wiser than her predecessor.

I took the kids to the park the other day.
Look at this weird thing Eilam does... he is clearly not happy getting sand on his feet...lol)
