Swap-pinned out I was by the time I left Nics place on Saturday night. But what an awesome day of laughs, fun, yummy food and good company. With the help of Lucy and Ruth I managed to make just over 30 pins, I nearly gave up half way through but was encouraged to carry on. Thanks girls. I'm so glad they are all done. Bring on CC06.

OMG just watched my fav programme Rock Star Supernova. Dilana is incredible. She has the most amazing voice, an absolute true talent.

I went to the Pukekohe High School Wearable Arts show on Monday night. I was so glad I did. It was very cool. I didn't get any photos as my two were only appearing briefly - Emma did a cute little dance at the beginning of their House item and James an even briefer appearance dressed in a toga. Settle down Lucy and Nic. Anyway I was very inspired and even to use something on a layout. You'll see soon when I finish.

The No 8 Wired blog has gone off with a bang. There seems to be a lot of interest in it which is fantastic. Tomorrow night 6pm is the deadline for the first Dare so join in the fun and get those entries in. Some amazing ones so far; so cool to see everyones take on it.

Here's a layout I was doing for a challenge that was supposed to take 1 hour. I tried to but it took a bit longer. Background stamped with MM foam flower stamps.

New bloggers

Did this layout a couple of weeks ago. Played around with the contrast in the photo - like this look. Stuck the photo on the p/p and just randomly cut around the circles - used up some old rub ons and handstitched around the edge. Simple but I love the effect.

Have added some more people to my sidebar. Check out all the newies. Wahoo. Blogworld is growing.

Lots to say today

Firstly, FK Issue 44 is awesome. I looked through to see if I could find some favourites but it is all too good to name any.

You have to check out the Huffer website. It cracks me up. This is a NZ brand of skate, surf etc gear. Their logo is 3 dots and check out the names of some of the items. I love that something so simple can be so cool. Very clever.

Ball photos
James and his girlfriend Jayde went to their school ball on Saturday night. They looked amazing. Here's a few of the photos I took.
Jayde won Queen of the Ball and James won Best Dancer. Aren't they gorgeous.
1. My handsome young man.
2. James and Jayde - her dress was stunning. The colour was divine and she had a gorgeous big brooch on her left hip.
3. James and Jayde at the pre-ball.
4. James and moi.
5. I love this photo with James' head in the corner making Jayde laugh.
