Its Whoo hoot Wednesday -I have a few of things to whoo hoot about:
Our shopping trip last Thursday - we managed to shop for seven hours that is me and the three kids who were having difficulty in deciding what to buy with grandads holiday money especially the boys.
School Holidays are over a little bit of peace around the house though got a ton of washing to do.
Kaitlyn started morning kindy today at four years two months a whole five months earlier then the boys did she loved it and tried to do her name when we got home and did right up to the Y very cool.
Andrew is loving his new job which is awesome
I completed all seven rounds of so you think you can scrap and even though I didn't get in the top three I have some layouts I'm proud of to add to my albums though I don't think I'm any nearer to figuring out my style LOL - I seem to range from fairly simple to filling up a page as much as I can!
Today I received my parcel from Scrapbox which was a pizza box 3/4 full of cardstock I bought (69 cents a sheet - can't go wrong with that) - should keep me going for a while......
And finally my name was drawn for NZ Dare 49 as the winner of a Shabby chic prize pack - ooh their stuff looks awesome can't wait to get this happy mail.

Well I didn't do a whoo hoot yesterday to tired to think as I had a busy day with shopping,baking, cleaning house and having the kids grandad for afternoon tea. The kids got some holiday money from him and today we spent seven HOURS shopping as they couldn't make up there minds or were not being sensible about their choices though Kaitlyn picked stuff pretty quickly. So the boys came home with hot wheels and pocket monsters and KT got a pony, a doll, bubble mixture set and a colouring in book and I came home with sore feet. So another busy day.
My LSS phoned the other day about the fiskars finger knife to say that no more were coming into NZ until September but guess what I was walking around the warehouse yesterday and found ONE for $9.95 which was a lot cheaper then what I had seen advertised so cant wait to have a play as I love cutting out patterned paper - that would have been on my whoo hoot list.

My layout for part seven So you think you can scrap is also done also with a Motat Photo - I will reveal it on Thursday. I can't believe seven weeks have gone by so quickly.
