Showers, Contractions and Design Teams!

Well, a lot has happened since my last post! Saturday 1st August was my baby shower, which was just a fabulous day!! Jeremy's mum came down and stayed with us all weekend, which was lovely, and the actual baby shower was at my mum's place in Sydney. It was just wonderful that mum took care of pretty much everything on the day, so i didn't have to worry about things - just turn up and eat and chat all afternoon!!

Here's what i looked like on the day - 32.5 weeks here:

We all sat outside and had lunch, which was really lovely. Mum made heaps of lovely quiches and slices for us to enjoy! We all look very blue (except me...) because i asked everyone to wear blue - to celebrate our baby boy!! After i sent the invites with that request, i realised that i didn't have anything blue that fit me!! So i decided to go completely the other day with my lovely hot pink top!!

After our lovely lunch in the sun, we went inside to open some pressies and play a couple of games. Mum organised it very well so that the prizes were lush bath bombs, and the 'nappy pin' game certainally kept my sister and her friend amused while we were opening the pressies!!

And check out the beautiful cake that mum made for the event - she really is very talented at cake decorating!!

So yes, it was a very busy, enjoyable day that went way too quickly!!

In other news, i've been experiencing some Branxton Hicks contractions in the last week or so. I had a whole day last week - from Tuesday afternoon to Wednesday afternoon where they were few and far between - i would get 3-4 an hour then nothing for an hour or so, then it would begin again. Then on Friday night i had a single contraction. We've just been to the obstetrician and he said that it's a good thing - my body is getting ready for what's to come!! Bubs is the right way around too, which is just fabulous! We've got our next ultrasound next week, which will determine if my placenta has lifted. It's fairly likely that it has, but if it hasn't, we may be looking at a C-section. Please pray for this for us - it's certainly been at the top of our prayer list!!

So another HUGE thing that's happened in the last week or so is that i've been chosen to be on the design team for Scrapbook Capital!!! I'm SO excited about this - it's the first design team i've been on - it's a 6 month position, and i just can't wait to get started with it all. I'm also still on the ScrapBoutique design team for the month of August, while the owner (Chelsea) takes a break after the massive month she had in July celebrating the shop's second birthday!

And here's some actual scrapping that i've done recently (how have i had time!?!?!). This is a page i did for the Embellished idol competition, using some SEI papers, Prima embellishments and Heidi Swapp Invisibles alphas!
