2 Awards....Me!!!!!

I've received 2 Awards in two days. Thanks ladies, I feel very special! ;0)
The first one is from the lovely Ness it's called a proximity award.
"These blogs believe and invest in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated.
Ok, well I am very new to this blogging thing and I have NO Idea how to put the picture of the award on this post :0(
But I can nominate eight more people for this award:
My lovely friend Karen - I will be forever grateful for her introducing me to this beautiful craft
The very talented Marni - Always has a friendly smile for people.
The gorgeous Julie - for providing laughs daily.
The ever - happy Kylie - for her charming and friendly nature.
Malinda - So helpful and kind. I love the way she seems to know "stuff" especially about computers.....
Well, I'm supposed to give out 8 awards, but sadly, I don't know many bloggers, :0(and the other people I know have already been given an award.

Thanks for this award, Ness, it really brought a smile to my face. Hugs to you!

I also got an award from the lovely Kylie: A Kreative Blogger Award. Thanks so much, Kylie, I feel very honoured! Hugs to you, chicky!
I can nominate 5 people for this award:
We have had a very beachy few days. The weather has not been the best to say the least, so we decided to make the best of the sunshiney days while we have them!
On Friday we went for prawns at our local fish market, and we went to Eimeo Beach for a picnic. Sadly, there was a yellow flag due to stingers, so we didn't go in the water. Connor still had a ball playing on the playground and exploring the rock pools.

Today we went on what is a favourite family outing. We went to the Mackay Harbour and had fish and chips next to the water. Afterwards we went to Harbour Beach, but AGAIN the beach was closed due to stingers. Aggghhhh! I s'pose that's what you get when you live in Nth Qld! LOL.

Undeterred, Connor played on the playground there, then we went home where he had some wet play with the hose!

Finally, here is a LO I did the other day - I love the bright happy Cosmo Cricket Papers - I think they are You Are My Sunshine.

The LO is a bit different for me, decided to do a bit of experimenting. Not sure if I was successful, though! LOL
