I bought a Lomo Fisheye camera on Trademe recently and it is so much fun to play with, not a serious camera, more for fun, but cool. Of course it's a film camera so can't share any photos yet. Am going to use some of them on my AmberNichole jack. I'm also looking out for a Polaroid camera. You can do cool as image transfers with the photos and I think it could be heaps of fun when you're with a bunch of friends.

And this was for the previous NZ Dare about Kiwi Slang. If you haven't already, you have to try this 6x12 size, so cool and fun to do.
This layout was for Scrapjacked for the August challenge to scrap the Effers. This was the Kristina jack.
And this was the Meg jack

Head on over to the Scrapbook Studio forum and check out the cool competition for August and this sketch challenge. Some great prizes up for grabs too.
And look out for a cool new dare on NZ Dares tonight. I can't believe we have been daring you guys for a year now. It has been fun and we hope to continue to keep up the good work as you all seem to think we do, which is so nice to hear.

There's a new theme on the Scrap the Teenz blog about scrapping your teens sport and/or hobby. I scrapped about James' surfing. He has been surfing competitively since he was 13. These photos are from the Maori Nationals last November. Loving scrapping the 6x12 size.

The journalling reads:
'Every week day we spend an hour in the car together driving. It's become a good time to catch up & just talk about things. I've been thankful for this time together that has made us quite close'.
Loved using the 6 x 12 size too.
Go check out the other great layouts. We have some great prizes up for grabs from Fiskars.
This layout was for our recent Scrap the Teenz blog theme. The Crazy things we do for our teens.
And this layout was for the previous Scrap the Teenz theme - Achievements.

Kirsty, Yolande and Chris at Te Puia Springs
Yolande and I in our retro gear. This was so fun. We had a real laugh in our outfits.
Chris, retro chick, doesn't she look cool. Loved the eyelashes too.

And wasn't that Chris Millar just the darlingest, loveliest person. I feel so happy to have met her. Her class was divine. And thank you so much Sara Jane for your amazing class. I just can't wait to complete and use it.
Well I've been sick ever since and finally took myself to the doctor yesterday to get some antibiotics. I think it's all psychological you know; once you know you got drugs you start to feel better straight away. I usually like to get over things without them but this one wasn't going away on it's own. The other problem was I had to work everyday ever since cause I had some days off before camp, therefore have not got round to doing this.
But I'm here at last and I also want to thank all the lovely, lovely ladies who came to camp and made it such an awesome weekend. It really makes it all worthwhile.
Thanks Michelle TW too, she is always there to lend a helping hand, and to Trina for helping me cut out hearts - yay for Fiskars demonstrators.
And last but not least to Yolande for all her hard hard work she puts in behind the scenes with all the paperwork, etc.
Will add pics later - promise!!

James had a heap of Transformer toys that are probably tucked away in the shed somewhere.

Loved meeting and chatting to Steph from Up2Scrap and Kelly R and talking about fun stuff. Cool to see my ole mates Nic and Lucy and catching up with the ever inspiring No 8 Wired girls.

And thanks Tanya for the big hugs, great to see you again.
Oh and my classes went GREAT. I really enjoyed teaching this weekend.

I'm loving the Pink CD 'I'm not Dead' at the mo. James gave it to me for Mothers Day and it's really cool. There's a song on it she sings with her Dad that he wrote when he was at war in Vietnam. It was the first song she ever learnt. It's really lovely.
And I can't wait till August cause I'm going to Christina Aguillera with Emma, James and Jayde. Wahoo, how exciting - she rocks man. Her voice is incredible. Love her 'Candyman' song at the mo. Very funky. The video is totally cool.
AND Rob and I are going to Steely Dan in September - SO can't wait. That's gonna take us right back to when we were about 18. COOL.

Did you see my new banner??
A share in case you didn't manage to get your hands on the latest Up2Scrap, cause apparently they've all sold out. You might be lucky to find one in a stationers somewhere. Awesome mag this month.

So first and foremost I have to say how proud I am of my girl. She went out and got herself a parttime job as a waitress in a restaurant, so cool, and a really great job too.
Also she won discus at school athletics last week for her level. She threw an almighty 18 something metres and the closest to her was 16 something. She's always been good at that. :))) She's off today to the Counties athletics.
Check out my SENZ classes here and email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to book in or want more info.
I have made some really cool Photoshop brushes (I know, wasting time doing that when I should be doing other stuff but it's very addictable) and I just need to work out how to make a zip file downloadable from my blog if anyone can help.
Found this cool site too.
