I'm back

Hi everyone. Be warned this post may be a little long, so if you need a cuppa maybe grab one now before you start lol.

Finally we are all home safe and sound from our trip up to QLD. It was lovely to get away and see all the family. We had such a great time, even though it seemed to just fly past. The first part of our trip was spent with my family on a farm. Nice, quiet and peaceful...but slightly on the chilly side. My sister and brother-in-law visited with my gorgeous little niece, who the girls just adored. Loads of giggles and laughter was had by all. The second part of our holiday we went to hubby's parents who don't live far from Bribie Island. It was sunny and beautiful there also. We went to the beach on the Saturday which was tonnes of fun. The girls loved every moment of it. Then Sunday we treked into Brisbane to the Scrapbook and Papercraft Expo. I got to meet the beautiful Monica and Karlene from 123 Scrapbook. We have chatted online long enough, so it was great to finally meet them. We even managed to have a giggle in such a short time. I also met Alison Wood and Melissa Kennedy from Kaisercraft. These two ladies were so sweet and I loved having the chance to say hi to them. It was a good day and in the end I probably spent way too much money, but it was worth it.

At the moment I am scrapping some DT commitments so I don't really have anything to show you. So instead I thought I would show you a few pics from our trip. These first 3 are from our trip to Mum and dads place. The girls love running and playing in the massive front yard. Notice the beanies and coats, which suggests it was a little cold, although i am sure I felt it more than they did.

These next couple of pics are of my gorgeous niece who turned 1 back in May.

This is a photo of the girls with their Great Grandma

and another with their Great Nanna

And last but not least a few beach photos. Little miss Emily looked right at home with her sun glasses and a hat borrowed from Grandma.

Kayla couldn't resist falling flat on her bottom in the water and then making some "sand angels".

Well that's it for tonight. If you have made it to the end thankyou so much for taking the time.
I will be be back soon hopefully with some creations. Oh and if you grabbed this month's issue of Scrapbook Creations, check out page 91 to see one of my layouts.

Have a great week.

Take care
