He makes me laugh everyday.
The other week he was dragging around this white rope. ( no idea where he got it from ) Anyway he thought it would be useful to tie it up on the bed posts by the feet. ( heck knows why - Not that DH needs encouragement ). Anyway he tied it up and I forgot about it. DH didn't notice it either. Over night Mitch crawls into our bed and falls asleep. DH gets up in the morning and Mitch is still asleep. DH ends up leaving for work and I decided to get up and get ready but couldn't move Mitch. He woke up and said "My foot stuck". I thought how could that be. Till I pulled back the covers and he had tied his foot with the rope to the bed. Perhaps so no one could send him back to his own bed. lol I laughed then untied the rope and got rid of the rope. lol * shaking head, don't know where he gets it from. Must he his Dad the scout in him. lol.
Another time when Mitch got hold of the rope and tied it up on our bed again. DH tried to remove it. Mitch turns to DH with those evil eyes and replies " I told you not to touch it", DH couldn't help but crack up over that. Hurried Mitch off and got rid of the rope.
You have to be so careful what you say around your kids. They don't miss a beat I tell ya. I was telling Hayden off for something he was doing and said I was watching him and saw him do whatever it was again and then said " I am warning you". Mitch turned around looked at Hayden with evil eyes saying " Yeah I'm warning you". That was so hard to keep a straight face that I turned and covered my mouth quickly and then proceeded to tell Mitch off for copying me. But it was so funny.
Beware if you come over to my place Mitch ties everything up and he'll use whatever he can. Used his scarf the other day and tied his trike up then cracked up cos the wheels wouldn't move.
Mitch looks like the innocent little thing but he is so quiet. Its like he is on a secret sabbotage mission. Tried to make a phone call the other week. He pulled the phone plug out. No wonder it was peaceful most of the day without telemarketers ringing. lol
Crazy little thing he is. But I love him.

Got this from Leanne's Blog I visited regarding all the Kite Event - WindJam07 at Glenelg.
This is the first time I've done this but looks like fun.
How it works is the first 3 people to respond to this post will get a little something special from me a RAK ( Random Act of Kindness ) I have mainly scrapping RAK's so I'll have to think for anyone none Scrapping but that's ok.
Once you've responded to my post here I'll get your details from you to post your special RAK to you. Then it is your turn to pay it forward too. You can do this by posting Pay It Forward on your blog and passing on a gift to those who respond to your post. See how far we can keep paying it forward. It's great to receive something for no reason at all, just sharing the love.
So if you'd like something special from me, be one of the first 3 to respond to this post.
Cheers Look forward to hearing from you.

Here is the full Layout I did for my friend Kerry aswell. I used the Addison Range of Printed papers. It does look better in real life. The colours are much more vibrant than what the photo does to it.
I'll have some more photos up of my Circle Journal soon so keep a watch out. I think my scrapbooking mojo has returned after a short break and I am ready to go again. I have a monogram class at Rrip It Scrapbooks on Thursday night so that should be great too.

Here is a close up of the flower tag. I am so into wire at the moment that I thought I'd have a go at making the centre of the flower with wire and beads. I think it looks cool. The flowers are diecuts by K&Company and I think they are gorgeous.
I did my first Rrip It Class last week really enjoyed that. I have another class next weekon Thursday making chipboard monograms. So I am looking forward to that.
I'm running a Stampin' Up! workshop too at Mum's place on Sunday so I am looking forward to that and having a lot of fun there. We will be making little 6 x 6 scrap pages. Mum wants to learn about scrapbooking as she'd like to go to the Retreat in Qld next year with me for SWV. So excited about that.

Accommodation is in dormatries attached to the function rooms.
Raffles, auctions, door prizes, big scrap sponsors donating products. Wines donated from surrounding wineries in SA and lovely dinner for 2 up for grabs at a prominant resturant.
There is also a night tour in the nearby park where you can meet, see and feed the animals.
Dates are coming possibly between March and May 2008. I'll let you know as details come available. At this retreat we are looking to raise as much money we can for Kids Cancer, and have a fabulous time.
Cost will be about $200-$250 for the weekend this includes meals, accomodation, goodies and some classes. Some classes maybe a gold coin donation for kids cancer foundation. How good is that.
Anyone that would like to contribute as a teacher to provide their services FREE for this Fundraising Retreat please register with me by emailing me and what you'd like to demo.
Demonstrations to run about 30 - 45 mins.
* More Competitions coming here soon so keep a look out here.
Hayden has his plaster for 4 weeks and is starting to get used to it.
He'll be back at school next week so we'll see how we go there. Sometimes he's a fragile soul.
I guess boys tend to break something, sometime in their life. Hopefully no more. I don't think he'll be playing on slipperydips again.
Well last night was my first teaching class at Rrip It Scrapbooks. I was a bit nervous but the ladies were lovely and calmed my nerves quickly.
We chattered and laughed it was just great. I did a doodling class with the girls and they couldn't believe how relaxing it is and just how effective it was looking. I look forward to my next one.
I have finished the Canvas for Peta now and it looks great. I'll upload it once its in the shop at Scrap with V.
I've been making some cards with my Stampin' Up! products and having fun there.
And just about to start my CJ with some great girls at Scrap with V.
Anyway thanks again to all who read my blog.

Didn't get much sleep there.
And yesterday I had Hayden's school ring me to let me know that Hayden fell off the slippery dip at lunch time (from the top). So I picked up my distressed little man and took him to the hospital and got an xray done. He has broken his arm just above the wrist across both bones. So he has a lovely red plaster cast on his arm all the way past his elbow.
So its been a little stressing but we are getting through it.
Got my first class at Rrip It Scrapbooking at Reynella tomorrow night so that's exciting.
I will also be helping out at the Stamping & Scrapbooking craft Fair on Sunday at Morphettville Race Course and doing some demos. So that's all good. Busy but good.
Anyway I've got a lot to do today so I'll catch you all later.
