WOW that was a great weekend. Sorry I haven't updated my blog. I've been so tired and working and spending time with the family. I haven't had a chance to make the photos smaller to put on my blog yet either. Will get to it though. Will also update the Scrapcamp blog later too. We had a great time and it seems that everyone who came did too.

Off to the Maori surfing Nationals this weekend in Raglan. James is competing; so looking forward to just sitting around and watching that. I love it, watching these awesome surfers manouvering their way around the waves. So clever I tell you. Wish I could do it.

Recent cool movies I've seen:
In Her Shoes - tissues material
The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - strange but very interesting.

Might have some photos ready this afternoon.

Movies, new banner etc.

Did anyone watch 'The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants' on SKY last night. Did you have your tissues handy. I'd been wanting to see this movie for ages but I didn't realise how sad it was. Happy ending though in case I've put you off. What a cool movie though.

Time for a new banner. Had a little play with some of my own brushes. Nothing great but OK for now.

I meant to say I was pleased that Matt won NZ Idol. We liked him from the beginning. He seems a really sweet guy. Loved his voice.

I can't believe how close Scrapcamp is. 9 more sleeps before I pick Karen up from the airport and we make our way to Yolandes the night before camp. Ooohhh how exciting. So looking forward to seeing and meeting everyone. If you are coing and didn't receive a newsletter in the last couple of days please let us know.

World Wide Dare

I did it, finally got it all up on the NZ Dare blog at midnight last night but it was totally worth it. Go check out the fantastically awesome layouts and then go check out the other dare blogs taking part in this incredible Dare Across the World.
How Dare You - Aust
Everyone is Speshal - UK
The Effers - US and Canada (yay Gen)

OK so the dare consists of 4 parts, 1 from each dare blog, all on the one layout.
Childhood memory or dream theme
Cover the whold page as in every square inch of the backlground
Throw in some paint somehwhere
Title on the photo

Here's mine:

I loved creating this layout. Brought back some great memories. Got out some old papers and other bits and pieces. Heaps of fun and extra special cause we were so honoured to be doing this with these awesome people from around the world. And so proud to be part of such an awesome bunch of girls on the NZ Dares.

I'd also like to say thanks to the wonderfully awesome Michelle Grant from the Aussie dares for creating the incredible banner for us. How cool is it!!

Have fun creating!!
