Last night master Jackson, who can barely walk has learnt the art of climbing. Yes he decided to climb up on our bed and he fell off head first onto the tiled floor..Arggggghhhhh!!! Of all the nights daddy was working i had no car and Jack was scraming and this big huge red and purple lump began to protrude from his forehead.. Panic stations!!!! Well nearly, i kept my cool head and got Alex to ring Craig... No answer...ok Jack still scraming, bump getting bigger, a head wound on a baby.. Call 000. Ambulance on its way, and still cant contact daddy.One son running around making a baby bottle other son trying to call craig, me looking for baby book, which in my panic couldnt find, holding scraming baby, daughter packing a bag for Jack and still no daddy..
Well the ambulance officers were wonderful, A lovely man and a woman who had treated my mum in the ambulance when she lived with us.
Off to hospital to be sure, never can tell with head injuries especially on babies. Jack calmed down though his heart rate was very high, but he seemed to enjoy the trip. Oh forgot to add got hold of dad he was on his way to hospital too.
Well we get there, me on the stretcher, Jack on my lap,into the emergency room and another ambulance pulled up and looked at me and the guy says, hi there, and dont i know this little fellow?..MMMM yes thats because you were the ambo who kindly responded to my son choking on a very small pice of plastic lodged in his airway..lol..mmm The ambo actually got the plastic out on the way to hospital. That was another story three months earlier..lol
Well you know your son is destined to be a regular when one of the nurses pipes up and says ive met Jack before.. Yes when he was three weeks old he had colic and constipation very bad that the doctors sent him to emergency, where he was treated. Well when the ambos and hospital staff know you well life is going to be a joy for the next 18 years till he can drive himself to hospital
Jack was sent home four hours later with no side effects exceot for the huge lump that still looks black and ugly..
But being the good scrapper i am!! I never miss a photo oppurtunity and took these photos when we got home last night..
Mmmmm time for a coffee me thinks and to ponder lifes journey:

Back to our haunted house.
The sad thing is a little girl died here in this house Boxing day 2004. We moved in in March 2005 as the parents couldnt live there any more. Well we were never told about the girls death. My mum is a bit psychic..mmm hope i spelt that right?..She can be a bit psycho too..lol..
Any whoooo my mum always thought she could feel a presence in the house, she thought it was my dad? He died christmas 2003.
Strange sounds in our house, sounds of footsteps on the stairs. our cat always going up stairs and going straight for our sons rrom and sleeping in there. The babys room always so cold....????
Well Stephanie comes home one day and tells about the little girl dying in our lounge room! What!! I said the young ones in the street were pulling her leg, but no, i asked the next door neighbour and she was shocked i didnt know.
Well didnt that cause some converstion in the house.
The boys and Craig all macho males dont beleive in anything except football and ford cars... Is this you? Veiw this website its facinating reading!!!
Me?? Well i am open to anything.
So you ask, is there a ghost and do you have proof?
Well lets start here and yes maybe you can find a logical solution for some things but maybe not everything.
When Jack was two months old we brought a mobile for his bed. You flick the switch and it turns on a light and spins around and makes music. Well oneday when i put Jack in the cradle i went to walk away and it turned on all by itself, this was before we new about the little girl. I told Craig who shrugged it off.
Jack always looking ove my shoulder and smilim=ng and baby giggles, but no one there....Always looking at something i couldnt see....
Next: When i went back to work Craig had changed Jack and was sitting in the lounge feeding him when the mobile came on all by itself.. He wasnt going to tell me..lol..it really freaked him out..Hahahahahahahaha.
Oh there is more so much more, but i have to pick up the kids from school.
to be continued...........

So i decided id like another cat in my life..Ha!!! I hear this from DP, We already have a much loved kitty cat called Fifty. A big hairy orange tom cat..
Yes we also have the problem of cat hair, so fifty hasnt beenallowed in the house since Billy went missing.
We did have a gorgeous rag doll cat called billy, he was only a kitten,but he loved to go outside and visit the kids in the street and guess what? Yeh he was stolen. MM AND WE LIVE IN A CULDESAC..TRYING TO THINK WHO THE PUSSY THEIF COULD BE?
Any whoooooo, now that Jack is a bit older i thought another kitten would be cool But well we have decided that we might like to try for another baby, remember that Jack was a surprise after 12 years and being told i could have no more children. But miracles happen and we have Jack, so im going to the doctors to see my chances of conceiving and carrying another baby..
Back to the kitten debate!
Craig hates cats, well thats what he has always said, but catch him unawares with fifty and he is giving him a good scratch and talking to..lol..so macho..lol..
Well i will sit on the fence for now about the kitten and wait till i see my doctor.. Until then here is a layout i did of Fifty for a CC at SAM, in black and white, Got second place for it too, very happy with it.

He took a step!!!!!
Yay Jackson took his first step, and its been a long time coming!! I took a photo too and will have to scrap it soon. As for scrapping when my best friends get together we have so much to talk about especially when we dont see each other for months. Took this photo at a morning coffee of my two best friends.
Love using Urban Lily papers. Found this lovely poem on the website Embellished
Children grow up
Love waxes and wanes
Careers end jobs come and go
Colleagues forget favours
Girlfriends are always there, no matter how much time and how many miles are between you.
A girlfriend is never farther away than needing her can reach.
The world wouldn't be the same without them, and neither would we.
When we began this adventure called womanhood, we had no idea of the incredible joys or sorrows that lay ahead.
Nor did we know how much we would need each other.
Every day, we need each other still.
cheers till next time!
Brrrrr chilly inside today, but oh my the weather outside is fantastic!
Nice day for coffee and cake.
Which brings me to this layout of Jack and his first MacDonalds experience, with a baby cino and a cookie.
Did you know????
Baby cino comes from the word Cappuccino - an Italian beverage, prepared with espresso and milk. A cappuccino is generally defined as 1/3 espresso, 1/3 steamed milk and 1/3 frothed milk
The baby cino has warm milk and froth with chocolate sprinkled on top.
This is a double layout using Basic grey papers, which im a big fan of!

Thought it was about time i displayed some layouts from my Design Team packs at ChookScraps.
Both feature Urban Lily papers. The girlfriends (on my wedding day 2000) layout also featured my own hand doodling on the Urban gypsy range. Upside down was created using the urban boy papers. i just love the photo of Jack doing his cute little trick!
Speaking of tricks i also made an altered formula tin this weekend for Jack for trick or treating at Halloween in October. My girlfriends and i alsways celebrate the day/night and give our kids a small party. They then trick or treat in the street at houses we have already advised that our children may come door knocking.
Yes we know this is an American celebration but only Americanised in that it has a holiday and dress ups and parties. I myself celebrate it for the reason that this day marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death. (the celtic reason). But it is sooo much fun for the kids!!
try this website: a favourite of mine: "the history channel" and find some interesting articles and things to do for Halloween.

Well i have been a bit slack with writing in here,too busy scrapping i think..
I was thinking the other day that i might start submitting my layouts to magazines but there is sooo much to do and so many great creative people out there. I guess you just have to have what they are looking for at the time..Ill think about it a bit more.
well I won a wonderful prize from Embellished scrapbook shoppe for this layout. I had dne the picture in a nother layout a week ago but wasnt happy at all with it so pulled it off and re did it for a challenge and am very happy with this out come.

Well it was Stephanies 17th Birthday yesterday, July 1st. We made it..for a while there i didnt think we would. What with the self harming and running away and rebelliousness. But she made it!!! we all made it..
She is growing into a beautiful young lady..im so proud of her. She comepleted year 11 and has a trade and some work lined up.. She doesnt want to go to uni, she just wants to work.. And so be it..we all cant be uni professors and doctors and lawyers.. Someone has to work in a shop,, its good honest work..I hope she gets what she wants..
Any ways on to some scrapping news. I was very shocked to have won a prize on LCs web site for this layout of Jack. It was a monogram challenge and there were a lot of great layouts.. So this was special..and i just love the pic of Jack eating his first birthday cake.
I also did manage a few more layouts this weekend and one of my favourites was this one of Jack in greens, another monogram challenge..
I want this one for his front page of his new album..
