Ive been away for a week and a bit!!

hi all! i feel like i havent blogged in AGES!! ive been in mackay for 8 days relaxing and kicking back :D it was so much fun! i got some scrapping done too so that is always a bonus!

A few bits of news ... firstly my first publication is out in For Keeps at the moment :D Its issue # 54. And its on page 67. I really am not too happy with the layout. I did it nearly a year ago and its very simple. But I submit everything that suits the theme :) At least its a great pic of brianna!

Secondly, I got a VERY EXCITING email from Scrapbook Creations!!!! I have been chosen to be their Artist in the Spotlight for SC46!! They are publishing two of my layouts and are sending me through a questionnaire for me to answer. I am so thrilled and humbled that they chose me! It totally blew me away. I just about fell off my chair when I read the email.

Thirdly, Ive been tagged TWICE!! By Crissy and also Manon! :D

so this is what i have to do. I have to list 7 random facts/habits about myself. Then I need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. I then visit their blog and leave them a comment so they know theyve been tagged! So here goes ....

1. I used to be an avid (obsessed) computer gamer ... particular FPS games
2. I started dating my DH at 17, engaged at 18, then married at 19.
3. I have 2 younger sisters and 1 older brother
4. I have an unexplainable phobia of grasshoppers
5. Much to the shock horror of some people I still use my humble gluestick sometimes on my scrap layouts! eeep! :) depends on what im gluing.
6. One of my fav ways to eat timtams is to lick off all the choc, then seperate the two biscuits, then eat the cream in the middle, then dunk the biscuits into my cuppa. takes ages and its weird ... but i need to savour every crumb cos im on Weight Watchers
7. I think Orlando Bloom is the hottest male celeb!

Ok ... and i cant find ANYONE who hasnt had this tag yet so i wont pass it on. seriously! all the blogs i visit have been tagged :D
