2011 in Review

Well what a rollercoaster year it has been for us this year. Lachlan has finished his second year at school and still loves it, Michala has grown up all of a sudden and is a real little princess and Darcie has become a very independant and very cheeky little girl. All 3 of them bring so much joy into our lives.

On the scrapping front I have had a very priveledged year. I enjoyed my time as a Scrapbooking Memories Master and loved meeting some of my fellow Masters at Camp Mojo in July. I taught my first ever class at the Little Scrapbook Shop Retreat in August, which seemed to go down a treat! :)
We have had a pretty good year on the farm this year as well. With all the rain we had over last summer, we have grown lots of grass! Lots of grass = happy cows and happy cows = lots of new calves.
Our lives were turned upside down in February this year, when my Mum was diagnosed with breast cancer. After a successful op to have the lump removed, some chemo and radium treatment, she is well on the road to recovery. We won't know until early next year whether or not she is in the all clear but she is feeling pretty good and is almost looking like her normal self again (with shorter, curlier hair!!)
And finally I will leave you with some of my favourite layouts from the year (well the ones I can share anyway! Most of my real faves are out for publication.)

Wishing you all a happy and prosperous 2012!!

Happy New Year!!
