More calendar numbers

Penny has added more numbers and days of the week to the group. Wow Penny they are awesome. All we need now are 11, 14, 21, 23, 26, 27, 29 and 31 and we will have a great selection to choose from. So excited to print out my photos.

Here are my ATC's for our latest swap on the Scrapbook Studio forum. The theme is CATS. Mine feature my cat Tink.

And a LO I did for the February daily inspiration on the Fiskars blog. Mine was to find inspiration from something around your home. So I had this 60's wall plaque which jumped out at me when I was looking for inspiration. Maybe it will inspire you or something around YOUR home will. If it does link here on the Fiskars website or here in this post. If you are looking for ideas to get you started on some LO's check out the Fiskars blog for some great ideas each day in February.
Also Jill has set a great challenge for February. Repetition. Check out her goregous sample here.

NZ Dares 2009

Check out the new NZ Dare for 2009. What did you learn in 2008.
Here's my LO.
I've used lots of Qtea kit goodness from last months kit.
And you should see this months kit full of yummy Gelati goodness. Can't wait to get stuck into it.
AND we have 2 Feb kits to give away at Scrapcamp, thanks Danielle.
It was beautiful on the beach yesterday (in fact all weekend, it's gorgeous today too). Here's a couple of photos I took, the first one in the morning about 10am and the other in the evening about 8pm.

Happy Waitangi weekend NZ.

Happy Birthday Baby

It's EMMA'S bithday today. She's 17, can you believe it!!

You know I was thinking, why can't I remember every little bit of her growing up, every minute of every day. What she looked like, what she did, what she said. That's why photos are
How would we remember otherwise. I wasn't into scrapbooking when James and Emma were little, or I would have recorded so much more.
If you have little ones now, DO IT, photograph them and write it all down, because when they get to 17 and you're remembering what they were like at 7 - YOU CAN!!

Here's a LO I did for her using the Crafters Workshop templates.

And the card I made her inspired by an ATC swap I'm doing with the theme of CATS. That's our pets Rio, Tink and Otis.

Hello February already

Have you checked the Numbers album. You have to sign in to see all the photos. I think all we need are 9, 11, 13, 14, 21, 23, 26, 27, 29 and 31 and some days. Trina and Cherie have been so enthusiastic, photographing numbers everywhere. Awesome!!

Thought I'd share some links. When I come across a cool site, I always email the link to myself or to work to share with the girls, so I went through them and picked out a couple to share with you guys.
If you have a Cuttlebug here is a cool blog with great challenges and tutorials.

Found this lady, cool arty scrapping

and this lady through the Tarisota newsletter

ATC's and other art here

Gorgeous work here

Scrapcamp is coming up soon. It is going to be the best esp with our friend Rach Hosking teaching 2 great classes; but unfortunately it will be our last. I mean are we in a 'recession' or what. I don't know, but it certainly seems to be affecting the industry everywhere. So sad, I certainly hope it doesn't affect too many of the maunfacturers, they just keep bringing out such incredibly gorgeous stuff.

Here's a LO I did last year for the Purple Onion DT call. I love scrapping flower photos, because I LOVE flowers I suppose. Very cool stamps, and easy online ordering too.Thanks for dropping by.
