Yah for weekends

I love my morning routine of Facebook, blogs, email and pinterest (over brekkie and coffee).  It gives me a lift to start the day.  AND how awesome are weekends?  Had a lovely time out at Lyn Jordan's place yesterday.  I really needed it after the week we've had.  Girl time.  Creating time.  Love it.  I need to finish the 2 LOs so can't show them yet.  One of them is even a multi photo page.  EEK!
Firstly a LO for Scrap Box NZ.  More pics and products can be found over there. 

 Inspired by one of the PaperTreyInk designers I made a couple of cards in this design with my new spool dies/ stamps.

Now I don't think I've shared this LO yet (LOL).  Swimming lessons from a year back.

That's all folks.  Going to have a quiet, pottering around home day today.  Lawns and tidying up outside are on the agenda.  Bye for now. xo

Where did January go?

Good morning.  Well the summer has been awesome.  Way easier having a 3 1/2 and a 6 year old than a 2 1/2 and 5 year old.  Lots of happy pretend play between the boys. We still had our moments but was good on the whole.  Did our usual 1 week in Golden Bay and visited the usual fav places- cafes and the like.  Lots of summer memories to scrap. 
Arrived home to a new deck that was built by my father in law.  LOVING the space.  Great having meals outside and Gav and I have a drink (me non-alchoholic!) after the kids are in bed most nights.  Fills up my quality time tank!
Also did 2 weeks of swimming lessons with Mr 6, which has seen a huge increase in his confidence and yesterday he decided to go for it with his over arm strokes.  We were thrilled as he has come such a long way over the last month. 
I seem to have a bit of creative energy at the moment.  Possibly cos I haven't properly started back at work yet.  Have lots of things on my wishlist.  I said to a friend yesterday that maybe I shouldn't buy any more paper until I've used up my stash.  Realistic?  Let's face it, probably not. LOL.  Thinking about a subscription to the crazy Monday kits.  Have finished the bulk of Dec Daily but am out of steam/ inspiration for the chipboard album cover.  Don't want lumpy bumpy as it will go in the bookshelf with the others.  **Ideas ladies?**
Love this LO that we made in a workshop with Lyn Jordan.

A project for Scrap Box NZ.  Most of the products can be purchased over there.

Lastly a charity kit that I bought blind from Scrappin Patch.  It took me over a year to complete!  The style/ colours aren't exactly to my taste, but hey it's another page done.  Made a few changes from the original design too.

Have a good week peeps xo
