Anzac Day 2010

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
 Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
 At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
LEST WE FORGET..


I am home from a beautiful dawn service... there was one old digger lagging behind all the others but he kept on walking bless him, certainly bought tears to my eyes.
It was great to see so many people there paying tribute to those who lost their lives for us - it is just getting bigger each year.

i forgot my camera - so here is the one photo i took on my phone

for those who do not know what Anzac Day is about look here

In Memory of my Grandma

my Grandma passed away last night - she was 92 so she had lived a full life, it is still hard to imagine life without her... but she is now where she wants to be, with Grandpa. I will love you always Grandma.


this photo was taken at her 91st birthday - i didn't get to see her this year....

i forgot to photograph the savouries - too busy eating them ☺
i made the little boxes and cupcake toppers using my new Stampin' up stamps ....

well i certainly have been neglecting my blog... i have been extremely busy with Taylah's school Carnival, which was a huge success i am sure all that attended had a great day... the weather was perfect and the entertainment and all the stalls were fabulous. I thank everyone who helped making it a fantastic event.

anyway while i have been busy organising the carnival i did managed to make a few things for the craft stall, sadly not as much as i had planned but something anyway here is a sample of some of the mini note books i made using up my scraps.

I have Ashleigh and Brauden's school Carnival coming up in May so some of these are for their craft stall.
