You must watch this!! I found it on Michelle's Blog!!
It is completely and utterly delightful!!!
I wish I was clever enough to put the video here properly..but it just wouldnt happen for me!

This was Paige in Grade Five dressed up for Book Week for school. Check the challenge out here

PENCIL LINES #172 Look at Hannah - both the girls learned to ride their bikes down this driveway!
The challenge is here.
and it MADE THE FAVES!!!
This was a fab challenge! I had heaps of fun with the tree part of the sketch!! Hannah really struggles with heights - Going on the Flying Fox was a big moment for her - luckily the photo reflects her happy second attempt with all nerves put aside!
METHODS PLAYGROUND #60 Was all about wool and felt!! Think this might be a little late, but loved the challenge anyway!

.And gorgeous Amy gave me this Award
Thanks so much gorgeous xx
Here are 7 random things about me...
I love my alone time
And loathe routine
I want to retire
My next birthday is a BIG one!
I'm hopelessly slow at texting and have the most basic phone on purpose!
I hate shopping and avoid it like the plague- If I have to, I fly through the door, buy and leave. I make a decision on the spot and if I have to wonder about it....then its a mistake.
I'm happy to just be at home (big smile)

We say 'geweldig'!!! But we also say 'super, fantastisch, schitterend, oogverblindend' etc. etc. All those words subscribe your amazing work!!

Love the layouts.....miss those long driveways and flying foxes though:(
My DD is the only kid at school who knows what a flying fox is because her big fat Mummy can't resist getting on them at the park!!(she still thinks she's 13 years old!!
So what it's like going to be 21 huh?
