Holidays are almost over

Wow its been a week since I posted, thats so not like me. It has been really really hot and humid here the last week and my computer/scrap room is the hottest in the house so I havent been spending alot of time in here, add cricket, the Australian open and getting things ready for the boys to head back to school and there hasnt been much time for creating or computering....

Jay starts his last year of primary school on Tuesday (omg his last year!) and the older two start Wednesday, Dan into year 9 and Josh year 11. I have all the books brought and covered (well for Jay-highschool boys dont have contact lol)named and uniforms brought and ready to go, hanging out for D day lol.

Friday Jayden attended a clinic with the Brisbane Lions, it was supposed to be hands on but with the rain and duty of care with a muddy ground (not to mention potential injury to Lions players) they did a question and answer with some fun inside. Turned out great, there were 9 players all up with some of the more 'famous' ones there too. Got lots of photos but the lighting in the clubhouse is shocking so the quality isnt all that good, here are a couple of the better ones.

The boys have been having lots of fun over the holidays (especially since the tennis started) making up there own little tennis court and having there very own "Backyard Open" hehe

Two layouts i did manage to get done this week, this first one for Mystical Colour challenge.

and this one for Stuck sketch #70.

The lovely Nina gave me this award....

"This is called The Proximity Award. "These blogs believe and invest in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers, who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their awards".

Thank you so much Nina :) sorry its taken me so long to put it up.

Im supposed to name 8 more lovely people to get this award....
There is no way that I could name just 8 that just wouldnt be fair. I have met so many wonderful people through the bloggin world and have become very good friends with alot of them.
I am going to award this to everyone who comes by and reads my blog, you are all wonderful and Im so blessed to have met you :)

Stay tuned for some more Buzz and Bloom sneek peeks in the next few days and dont forget to check out the blog regulary for lots of fantastic inspiration from the team.

Have a fantastic weekend, and for those Aussie friends have fun celebrating this Australia Day.

Cheers Lis :)


  1. Gorgeous layouts Lisa, your son is in that "in-between" stage and it is confusing.

    Jayden looks like he had a wonderful time with the Lions, what a wonderful opportunity for him.

    I hope the boys have a good first day back to school next week.
