Another First

Well it's blowing a gale out there today, great for getting the washing dry I guess, (as long as it doesn't get blown far and wide)!!

I've made a card for my youngest, she's turning 11 next month. She's been learning guitar this year and I stumbled across these amazing images Kenny K you can purchase them here. And what did I find, but an image of a girly girl with a guitar.

This is my card and the challenges I would like to enter it into.

Kenny K - Embossing (I heat embossed the yellow around the nestability)
Stamp it Crazy - Girly Girl
Totally Gorjuss - Flowers

Taaa Daaaa.... Here she is :0

Must be off, have lunch with friends up in Titirangi Village (that's if hubby gets home from his call out to fix something at the hospital).

Hi all

Well I'm so excited today on what the Postie brought me.

I recently made a purchase from

ooooh they have such a gorgeous selection of crafts for cards and scrapbooking. You can find them here.

I found them via Bev, the most inspirational designer I've found to date. Man her cards are just to die for. I found her here.

Here's what I bought, mmmmmm so scrummy. Can't wait to add them to my pages and cards.

Off to do chores.

Productive Weekend of Sorts

Evening all,

Been rather a busy weekend on the home front.

  • Shortbread made (check)
  • Lemon & Poppyseed muffins made (check)
  • Peach muffins made (check)
  • Food shopping (check)
  • Bathroom & Toilet cleaned (check)
  • Scrapbooked (4 pages) (check)
  • Vacuumed (check)
  • Washing (check)
  • Rabbits walked and hutch cleaned (check)
  • Watched a "tear jerking" DVD - "Dear John ... " (highly recommend)
Below are the pages I've accomplished.

Jess and Rose and a friends son Tom feeding the pidgeons at The Domain. Tom would hold out the bread and let the pidgeons land on his arm and eat from his hand. Jess & Rose weren't brave enough to do so, I don't blame them. EWWW!

Jess had a couple of friend stay over for Halloween in 2008. Sam (in the green witch's hat), Jess in the devil's outfit "being a devil" and rose in witch outfit with broom. They went "trick or treating" throughout the neibourhood and brought back lots of goodies.

Jess and Rose climbing a "Big" tree at The Domain.
And (below) hanging with Sam.

Rich was drenching the girls with buckets of water, wasn't quite summer. So was RATHER COLD!!!

Aw cute, love the look on Rose's face :)
