and I am going to tell you why...

Because the amazing Suzie has been hard at work and FINALLY the cyber doors for Love Scrappin have opened!!! YAYAY Now you can go see what I mean by bargain and for this week Suzie is having a Grand Opening Special and offering 20% off EVERYTHING in the store and believe me it is worth RUNNING over to have a look as her 'normal' prices were already low and now there is another 20% off and if that isn't enough she is also offering free postage over $65 orders and a flat rate of $6.50 postage for Australia wide and if you are local you can pick up for free! International customers are welcome too, notification via email of postage rate. So why not go have a little look around and she would love to hear any feedback, on her blog, and I put my money where my mouth is on this one as I just became her first online customer!! and I got super excited because not only does she stock my fave double sided tape but she also has it at the cheapest price that I have seen ANYWHERE, didn't get any with the 20% off though as I already have 3 rolls stashed away lol.

On the scrappy front, I hadn't scrapped in a while so was feeling scared about sitting down to scrap. Wondering if I would be able to etc etc, I know most scrappers go through this, but I sat down with the latest My Sweet Spuds kit, I also purchased the add on as I've been craving the American Crafts products, and scrapped this page for the latest Scrap Mojo challenge.

Journaling "What else would one say, with a new hat, but Yo!"

The challenge was to use the Cirque Du Soleil site as inspo and to use sequins... job done lol Love the colour and busy-ness that Cirque Du Soleil provides and always find colour an inspiration to create.

On the home front, Elizabeth started back kindergarten at the 'big school' today. They have been 'off campus' till this term and she loved it! Came home at lunchtime all excited because she had seen Megan and Jessica and had met some of the staff who the kinder kids hadn't met before, like the music teacher and the librarian. Jessica started back at swimming lessons this afternoon, couldn't get places for any of the other girls, and Dave said she swam well on her belly and sank on her back lol. And what did Lucy and I do this morning? We went to visit my Great Aunt. She was finally allowed to go home, while we were away, so after about 3 months in hospital, most of that time was unnecessary for her to have been there, she was home. When she was in the hospital we could go that way to school, for the end of kinder pickup, so it just became part of our almost daily routine. Sadly, now, she lives 45+ minute drive away from us so trying to fit in visits is going to become a juggling act, but we got one in today :)

**EDIT TO ADD** Another reason to get excited, the announcement at Scrap-n-Crop!! Can't wait to see what the Scrap-n-Crop crew have up their sleeve for the new kit club!!!
