What a hoot....

Here's a look at a cute lil owl canvas I have been working on for a March class at scraptivate. Those "Collection" chipboard owls are soooo cute. The owner and designer of the collections is a wonderful Perth lady - Julie. She is so clever and always comes up with awesome products.

Would you like a RAK sent to you including a mini canvas and some raw owls to play with? I'll add some other fun and funky items too...leave me some love and we will randomly pick a winner later this week!

Have a fabulous weekend....HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY!

Home again...

Well we are back home....Poppy had such a ball playing with her cousins! So cute to watch them all interact! She followed the boys around non stop! And the big girls were gorgeous with her!

Lots of scrapping to catch up on and before we know it it will be time for school. I'm excited about my teaching this year and have a great job for the year - Kindy and Junior Primary Library teacher...can't wait!

Have a couple of LOs and some summer fun photos to share....

Summer fun...

****Looking for a fun monthly competition this new year? Head over to scrap world and check out the NEW completition - CALENDAR GIRLS...all details in the forum. Looks to be a fun way to record the year!****

Well still no scrapping to share as we are away for at least another week....that said my gorgeous nieces are keen to alter some diaries so we might go hunt down some supplies tomorrow! We have been hanging out, swimming, relaxing, visited the local markets....found some vintage goodies!

The challenge at Gallery 12 this week is "backyard" are some snaps from my sister's backyard...I have another series of shots to pick from too...

Happy New Year!!!!

Well here we are with a NEW YEAR! I can't believe it! We had a great New Year's eve with my sister, brother, a few friends, some champers and tequilla (don't ask!). The kids a had a ball with sparklers and glow sticks - got some fab pics!

So I am in the country visiting my family and helping out my sister with her kids as they have a new business. I only have limited net access and have no photos loaded to share yet....

BUT there is a lot of fun ventures coming up for me this year so....

Please have a peek at this fab. photo challenge blog....check in each week and vote for your favourite photo...

Twelve Photographers. One photo, every week of the year. A 52 week photo challenge where you, the viewer are asked to leave your vote for the best weekly photo in the comments section of each post. We're relying on your votes to see who the annual winner will be. Just mention the number that goes with your favourite photo. It's that easy!

Do you have any new year resolutions? I'm not big on the whole resolution thing but I definately think it is always good to reflect and aim for new goals....but not only in Janurary!

Somethings for me...
1. Photography course
2. Think of fun ideas for my Scraptivate classes
3. Stress less - create more
4. Get a little healthier
5. Save - use my money more efficiently
6. Catch up with my friends more often
7. Renovate our home without having a total breakdown
8. Enjoy the little things!

What are you aiming for in 2008??? Hope you reach for you dreams, enjoy the journey, laugh along the way!
