Saw this on Kathryn's blog and thought I'd give it a go. You just need to head over to Wikipedia and scroll down to the search bar on the left hand sidebar. Enter your birthdate, month first then date (so for me it was August 7) and hit search. You'll get a list of all hits relevent to your search, so just click on the first one you see with your birthdate. Once you have done this choose three events that have occured on that date and then a few famous people who share your birthday. Here are my results;

1794 - Whiskey Rebellion begins

1945 - President Harry Truman announces the bombing of Hiroshima

1947 - The Bombay Municipal Corporation formally takes over the Bombay Electric Supply and Transport (BEST). (this one is just for you Wend LOL)

I thougth it would be intersting to see who shared my exact birthdate and I don't know what to make of it? One made me think "oh i wish" and the other made me thing "oh God". We are an interesting bunch us 7 August 1975 lot.

1975 - Charlize Theron, South African actress

1975 - David Hicks, Australian alleged terrorist

Crop for Kids has pretty much been keeping me busy these last few weeks so I really haven't got anyhting exciting to tell. I have managed to do a little scrapping lately and am off to scan, so I will post some picks later.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

It has been so long, so that's why I am all exctied. I did this LO for Alison's challenge for the Cyber Crop that was held at KSK this past friday night.

I must get around to scanning some other LO's that I've done this year (there's not many LOL), but that's a another post.

Well so much for me being more vigilant when it came to posting on my blog.

So what's news??? Not much really, well nothing overly exciting that's for sure, just the usual everyday stuff.

Caitlin is really enjoying school and I am amazed at how much she is growing up. While this is all wonderful, the one drawback is that she now thinks she is too big to play with her little sister. Don't get me wrong, they do still play together all the time, it's just that they fight about everything. Yesterday's spat was over a brown crayon...brown for god's sake...they could have least made it worthwhile and picked say purple or green.

Miss Gigi herself is a whole other story. Just when I thought she couldn't get anymore headstrong...this child will be the death of me, I'm sure. Even though she is hard work, there are days when she is just so adorably cute, just like in this photo.

and now that I have admitted that, you can all stop emailing me to remind me that it has been over a month since I last posted and that I need to update LOL

Things have been crazy hectic around here and I have soooo much to talk about...where do I start?

Last weekend I was lucky enough to attend the Scrapanalia Retreat at The Country Place, Kalorama, int the Dandenong Mountains. The venue was absolutely divine and on several occasions over the weekend the thought of never leaving did cross my mind. Having beautiful meals cooked for you, a serviette placed on your lap and somebody else doing the dishes and making the beds has an amazing way of rejuvenating the soul. I didn't get a lot done (ok 2 LO's, although one of them was a double) but being able to catch up with friends and make so many more far outweighed the whole scrapping thing. We had such a great group of women attend and it was nice that we all mingled together and made the effort to get to know one another. I have some photos to upload and will get on to that ASAP.

On Monday I attended the Making Memories Trade class at Quest Apartments in Richmond. Having had only a couple of hours sleep withing the four days leading up to it, I can't believe I actually managed to get through it. It was a great day and as soon as I finish my album I will upload some pics for all of you to see. I have to say a big thank you to Nicole and Emilie from Simply Scrapbooking in Eltham, who were great company and forgave me for my lack of brain power. I also bumped into an old friend that I hadn't seen in nearly six years. I had no idea that she scrapped, let alone that she owned her own online ribbon store. Simone's ribbons are reasonably priced and she has so new ribbons arriving from Malaysia soon, so head over to the Ribbon Palace website and check it out.

On Monday we also had Ebony's final X-rays and I am happy to report that she has the all clear. Thank you to everyone who has sent good vibes her way since the accident in December, it obviously had the right effect. The vets has also featured Eb in their February newsletter, so that was a little exciting for us. Check it out here.

I think that will do for one day. I'll be back to upload some photos and fill you in on everything else within the next couple of days...I promise.
