Time Flies!

I'm such a naughty blogger!

I just looked at the date of my last post, and it has been two weeks! Eeek!
Oh dear, I promised myself I would post every few days, but, well, as usual time has gotten away from me! My bad!!!!

We have been away - we went down to Bribie Island to visit Mark's Mum and Dad.

We had a lovely time, Connor had an absolute ball - he loves the beach, and we also went to Australia Zoo - I don't think I have ever seen him so excited for so long! He fed elepahants, saw Bindi, Bob and Terri during the Crocoseum show, saw tigers, koalas - well, just so many animals! What a fantastic day!

Here are some pics of our holiday!

Connor on a Tortoise Statue at Australia Zoo!

When I look at this photo, I don't know who had more fun, Mark or Connor! LOL!

And just look at this gorgeous creature! What a magnificent animal, I don't know how people can hunt them......

Here is Connor at the beach - a budding l'il surfer if ever I saw one!

(I can't wait to scrap the photo above! LOL) The lovely Linda from Scrapbooknbits has a copy atm, we are participating in a photo swap - a great idea, organised by Scraphappy Kylie. I have a fantastic shot of her son on his motorbike - a great action shot, which I also can't wait to scrap! Linda is a very talented scrapper, so I'm sure she'll do a wonderful job!

Finally, some shares, my gorgeous niece Elyse is expecting a bub in August.

I've made a pregnancy diary for her to recored all the special moments.

I got some help from my lovely friends on the forum at ScrapbooknBits, and I'm actually really pleased with how it turned out.

Wish I'd started scrappin before I had Connor!

Oh Maaan!

And finally, I did this LO as part of Scrapbook Creations Blind Scrap Challenge, run by Jolene Pienaar - Unfortunately, I ran out of time to upload it, so I could email it away!


I used some yummo paper from Prima's Get Happy Range - the rubons and stickers are also from that range. I love all the bright, cheerful colours!
That's enough from me, anyway, I hope to be back tomorrow with more shares and news!

Great photos ... Australia Zoo is a great place, we visited there quite a few years ago when Blake was a huge Steve Irwin fan!
Looking forward to seeing all the photo swap LO's over at SnB!
