Happy Hump Day

Hey there...did you miss me?

Bet you didn't even realise I was gone right?? LOL. I did set up a few posts for you before I left so you wouldn't be too bored if you did pop in:-)

Yep, we've been away for a week in Hervey Bay....having a wonderful relaxing time together....just what the doctor ordered:-)

Thoroughly enjoyed waking up to this view every day....

....and the highlight of our trip was this....

Whale Watching:-)

DH and the kids have seen whales off shore here in our little boat but I really wanted to be in a BIG boat when I got close to a whale.....and did we ever get close....this beautiful big (9 metre) girl (I named her Bessie) came up to us and spent an hour just rolling around and under our boat, eye balling us and rubbing her barnacled back/tummy on the boat....it was  U.N.B.E.L.I.E.V.A.B.L.E :-))

I was SO delighted.....

The other reason we headed up to Hervey Bay was so we could also get over and see Fraser Island...

So many gorgeous spots to take in on the island and we only went for a day trip.....we certainly packed a lot into the day though and slept well that night:-)

We were so lucky with the weather....blue sky when we went whale watching and over to Fraser and only the odd shower the rest of the time.....thankfully:-)

I took a few papercrafting bits and pieces away with me so that I wouldn't be subjected to mind numbing tv each night LOL and managed to finish the first 9 months of my Basic Grey 2011 Calendar...will be back to start sharing tomorrow.

Now that I'm home - to find an order arrived from There She Goes and Stampin" Up!... I'm dying to get into some card making again as soon as I can.....be back to share soon:-)

Hope to see you then....

Christmas Calendars

If you've been reading my blog for a while you know I also like to scrapbook and if you were around here last Christmas you'll know that I make 21 cm x 21 cm Calendars for my Mum and MIL for Christmas each year. It's a tradition....I've been doing it for about 7 years now and they won't let me stop *lol*.

I buy the Calendars at Paper and Stuff here in Cooranbong, Australia for $14.95 and they're awesome.

Paper 'n Stuff Calendars

Here's a couple of pics from last year...

Enjoy the Moment

I'm just satarting to put these calendars together again for 2011 so I'll show you what I get up to.

I'm also working on one of these for myself again this year.... 

BG Calendar

I had so much fun with this year's one...and love the 2011 one even more cause it's less specific to the Northern Hemisphere seasons and more general for all of us....yippee!

BG Calendar back

I'll be back to share my pages soon I hope....thanks for visiting!
