Some more Exmouth

The Lighthouse

Thanks for stopping by


A few Exmouth Pics to share

Today I thought I would share a couple of photos from our holiday to Exmouth in May.  I had only been there once when I was about 15 and it was only for the day, so I didn't get to see too much.  This time, we saw a bit more because we were there for a week.  But I thought Exmouth was a lot bigger town than it is.  But we did manage to find a really nice beach out at Turquoise Bay, which is part of the National Park up there.  Brad taught me to snorkel and I loved it, I can't believe I was so scared of it.

It was so beautiful here and the water was about 3 shades of blue on this day.  The photos don't really show it how we saw it.

Chloe was having a great time swimming and collecting shells.

 Luke thought he might have a go at snorkelling too, but he looked more like Darth Vadar.

Well thats it for me for now.  I might be back later with a few cards I made last week.

Chloe's 6th Birthday

Our little Chloe turned 6 two weeks ago.  I have to say that I was a little sad.  It feels like only yesterday that she was so little and just learning to walk and do things.  But, now she is a big year one girl, who is learning to read and count in twos and all sorts of things. 

I thought I would share a couple of photos from her birthday.  She had such a great time.  She asked for a Barbie ice cream cake from the Woman's Weekly cake book. 

It doesn't look exactly like the book, but she loved it anyway. 

And, of course, the presents were the best part of the day.

She was pretty happy with her new DSi that she had been asking for.

She had a couple of friends come over after school for afternoon tea and birthday cake and we covered some notebooks and they decorated them with butterflies, flowers and some shiny rhinestones to take home, which they all loved doing. 

I'm off now to go and make 2 Thank you cards.

A Tattered Teddy Card

Hi there,

I'm still here.  I had 2 assignments left to finish and I wouldn't let myself have any play time until they were finished and posted off.  Well, I sent the last one off last Friday, YAY, so this week I have had a little play time. 

Yesterday, I played with a new Tattered Teddy stamp Mum got from a magazine and he is sooo cute.  I was a bit scared of using him at first because of all the detail and what colour to use and I'm not that great when it comes to stamping.  But, he actually turned out and I'm pretty happy with him.

Isn't he cute??

Well, I'm off to find a hot cup of tea as it is freezing and my fingers feel like they are frozen.
