Here is my OTP that I swore I'd never do one again!!

Firstly, here is the Advent/Christmas Countdown tree that I bought the other day. I finished it today and had fun doing it. Although working out the numbers I needed (needing 2 number 2's etc) was a bit brain frying. So we are going to count down from 31 days till christmas.

I know it is missing the left hand side number tiles. I lost the other hook, somewhere into the great unknown. One minute it was there, and then it disappeared. Those damn elves!!
I will have to buy another one. And while I am doing that, I am going to buy a star for the top I think. It looks like it's missing something.
The kids love it.

And here is the OTP album I did.
I am happy with it. (Even though I swore off them!!)
It's for my son and he loves it.
Now I want to do one for my hubby and I am going to do one each for my girlfriends with photos of us over the years, good and bad. These will be much easier to do than a calendar each. I am only going to do a calendar for my parents. That's enough.

Gotta run. Montana is awake. She hasn't been well this past week. We went to the doctors and they are doing all these tests on her.
Has anyone had to get a urine sample from a baby girl with those bags?!! What a job.
Till next time.......

Woohoo!! 3 classes to go!

Not long to go now and I will be finished and qualified! It has been quite a testing past 2 years, with this past year being more testing than last. I guess with being pregnant and having baby brain during pregnancy and now that she's here my brain has been mush.
Thankfully the past 3 weeks, my brain had finally come back to me even if only for a little while, long enough to get all my work done to hand in.

I had a girlfriend come and visit while she was down from Sydney. She will be moving back to Melbourne soon, just before Christmas. I can't wait.
While she was here, I asked her to take some photos of all of us as we haven't got a whole family shot with Montana. Here are the results:

Because I have been so busy with school I haven't done much scrapping at all. After I handed in all my work last Friday, I scrapped all day Saturday. We were meant to be having a garage sale, but it was meant to be 16 and 17 degrees. I thought well, I wouldn't be out in that weather, with a storm also, so we decided to leave it till this coming weekend. Fingers crossed it's better weather.
So, my scrapping on Saturday consisted of doing another OTP. Which I know I swore off doing any more after I did Montana's which was my first one.
But because I did one for her, I had to do one for my son. So I did. I haven't taken any pics of it yet. I am almost finished. But I am really happy with it. It was easier than Montana's. But looking at Montana's I did do alot more than I needed. I added transparent pages also. But I love them both.
I guess I will be doing some more OTP albums now that I know they don't have to be so detailed and intricate as my first one.
Better go. Montana has woken up.
Till next time.....

Lucky Me.....

Wow, what a week this has been.
Firstly a few weeks back I won an ATC from the lovely Julie for suggesting the Scrap Therapy Man of The Month (Jude Law).
Then, I win the Scrap Therapy Blog Challenge with this layout.....

Then I had a few lucky things happen while shopping etc.

Then I won a Guessing Game.

Since scrapping I haven't won anything and it's all happening this week!!!

I went and got a Tattslotto ticket today. Just in case.

Thanks for looking!

I love these..........wish I was young enough!!

Especially the last ones. They are just gorgeous!! But seriously, I think I am getting too old for them.
Check them out and others here
