No: 1s in the family!!!!!!!!

This is interesting. I have two challenges to do at uproar2scrapmore. I combined them because one was a sketch and the other was Charmane’s challenge for the First Birthday. Charmane’s challenge rules are use “1” in the title, used chipboard altered for the layout and use rub ons(plural).

The sketch is.


Here is my take:


I loved doing this one as I made the envelope and the tags and also used pastel shades of blue and yellow which I have never used previously. We have 3 persons in our family who are No.1 born so I decided to scrap with that idea. But we are also the majority at home. So I sort stuck with this idea of using this song “we are one but we are many” in this layout. My journaling goes… “we are no.1s but we are many”. I loved how this layout evolved from the sketch to using the challenge rules and then the song idea. Cool hun!!!

A good day today.

Well had a rough day yesterday. Wish I was more organized! Today is good. I have at least prioritized my to do list. Just have to follow it and tick it off.

My DD lost her top front tooth yesterday! She is cool about it. OMG! all the Iffff” and “ufff” coimg out of her mouth when she talk is sort of like that Ultra Tune ad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is one more wobbly about to fall any minute. All the “ifffs and Ufffs” are going to get worse. Got to take a photo soon. These photos are to be treasured and scrapped of course. Yeah! Soon you will see it in one of my layout.

Shopping in Coles yesterday was so difficult because kids came with me!! Ended up having a headache. Off late, I am surviving with 2 paracetamols every other day. Headaches, migraines, tension…………….. I am soon going to have kidney trouble!!

I managed to get into the forums and chat and put up some info about myself as I was in the spotlight at uproar2scrapmore.com.au Few questions answered………………..

Oh! BTW, I also won the September make your own embellishment RAK by Tracey for my “little precious one” layout. I am one of the winner. How cool is that?

I also prioritized how many layouts I got to make in total. Looks like I have about 10 left!!!!!!!!!!!! One per day I should be able to finish it. I think so if I keep up to it.

Will load couple of layouts tonight

I am frustrated and angry!!!!!

Why? Second day in a row I took my kids to school and the school has not yet started.

I am frustrated. I need to get back to work.

My DD was like “No, it is not fair. I want to go to school”. Poor thing she has also had enough.

More than 2 weeks of school holidays and none of my work is done. I am lagging behind in everything! Vacswim took away 4 hours of my precious time in the afternoon. Atleast kids learned to swim. It is hard to keep them occupied all the time. They have had enough and I have had enough. Would like to know who sets the dates for school holidays! Would like to have a word with them.


I called my husband to babysit today and I am at work now. Peaceful and happy. Sometimes, you need that time off for yourself to do few things you enjoy!! People agree?
Anyway, work is light so far and so I am planning on few layouts.

Will update more later once I calm down…………..
