catch-up and happy birthday to me ...

It's been a busy few weeks at the Basnett house, and I've been a bit slack posting.

Em has been sick on and off for 2 weeks. First with headaches, then with Asthma, and now she's ended up with a stinking cold. I've got her topped up on kids echinacea and vitamin C, and hope that helps her get better. She's recently completed her first NAPLAN testing. We don't get the results until September, but I'm interested to see how she goes. The testing benchmarks the school and the child in literacy and numeracy against the school and national average. She's been busy with her dance practice - both school and private. She's got competitions coming up at the end of June and beginning July.

Aidan's theatre rehersals are picking up, as he is in the final preparations for his big acting debut! My thespian husband is playing 2 parts in an upcoming production of Arsenic and Old Lace at the Cronulla Arts Theatre. I'm really looking forward to seeing him perform.

And I celebrated my birthday on Saturday! Happy Birthday to me...yeah! We went down to the south coast for the weekend, to celebrate with my family. Had a great dinner at a very unique restaurant called Stonegrill - where you cook your own meal on a hot rock that is brought to the table. I had lots of calls, cards and well wishes....thanks everyone. I scored some new charms for my Pandora, a foot massager, some money, and a heap of scratchies that might just win me some moula!

On the scrapping front, I've had some exciting news. 2 of my layouts have been picked up by Scrapbooking Memores for publication. woot, woot! The first one won't appear for a couple of months, so there's a bit of a wait. I'll post here when I'mm allowed to.

And 2 of my designers have made it to the final round of SYTYCD at DigiScrapAddicts. Woo Hoo. It's down to the last 8, and either of them could easily be the winner. I have my fingers crossed for both of them. Good luck Amy and Lyndsay!

I'll leave you with some recent layouts. Each is clickable, if you want to see the credits.
