Kenzie's already 1

I cant believe that this little princess has just turned one. Mackenzie is such a little dolly, and she loves her aunty!!! (cause i wont give her a choice, lol).
On the last friday of September me and kids went up to Mandy's for lunch for Kenzie's birthday. Didn't think it was going to happen as me, mum and mandy had all been so sick and stuck in bed for days.
The kids had a great time playing, having yummy cupcakes and braving the pool!!! Yes, the pool, and it was absolutely freezing. But they dont care.
They spend heaps of time outside even though the weather wasn't the best, overcast and raining on and off. Mandy and I ducked up the chicken shop and when we got back there was Shanice wheeling Hunter around in the wheelbarrow, and cause he wasn't comfy Nan gave him a cushion for his little head, lol.
After lunch I found them playing "The Renovators" at the side of the house. Hunter was playing in the mud while Shanice and Connor had time challenges to paint the side of the house with paintbrushes and water. Because they were all covered in mud that's why they ended up in the pool!
Sunday was Kenzie's birthday party with all the family. WOW, she is such a spoilt and loved little princess.
Mackenzie's gorgeous cupcake cake.
Such a cute family photo with lots of birthday kisses from her big brother

Savvy Delights retreat

So it seems all I've been doing as of late is trying to catch up on everything! I do wish that I had just a bit more time in each day, I think most people feel the same way.
A few weeks back I was lucky to go along to the Savvy Delights retreat. Joh, Sami and myself had a great time as I knew we would:)
Sandra and Sarah were fantastic hosts and all the women there were so inspiring. It was also great to catch up with a number of lovely ladies that i haven't seen in yonks.
So, I set myself the normal challenge of not to procrastinate and to produce at least one layout, lol, which was easy enough to accomplish so I could go home a happy camper.
The girls had put up a stack of challenges for us to have a go at and when i got a little stuck i had a go at a couple which i loved.
It has now become a bit of a new tradition at retreat for the crazy Scrap Girls to have a photo taken in, around, behind, on a tree....... and of course, this one was no different! Sandra has told me that my copy is coming my way and i cant wait to see the evidence, lol.
So here's a bit of what i created:)
I think this one was based on a sketch challenge! But i used some the cute little embellies from Susan and Wendy from A Lil' Something .... super cute!!!
This one i had already started.... months ago.... and decided that i really should finish it!
Meeting Mackenzie....... cant believe how fast a year has gone
One of the challenges using a transparency made by Lisa Warren....... i alcohol inked all the butterflies
A bit of banner action....... I'm just in love with this Cosmo Cricket range
And lucky last layout, this one was also half started, but now finished!
