And a little peek at the Acrylic album project I completed for the Scrapbook Studio November 'dare to be clear' kit....why an acrylic album? why not...its funky and fresh and a little different than the norm and the clear pages combined with the hot pink, orange, green and blues in the kit are just perfect for a summer holiday album!
Here's the boys getting a taste of being behind the wheel at the BOI show up the road (this show has been at the same showgrounds for 165 years!! whoa!!) It was cool too, lots of animals to pat and farm machines to sit on and exhibits, rides and fun stuff for kids...they had been busy all week entering artwork, flower saucers and vegetable models and baking etc...I loved doing all that stuff at school. The food and wine tent was scrummy...could have spent longer there tasting and watching the cooking demos going on...but the kids dragged us off to the treasure hunt and the mini jeeps instead! Jim pretended to race Joseph and Patrick. Josephs face was just hilarious...a mixture of pure fear and determination as he screamed (it must have felt like that to him) around the tyres trying to pass Dad and Samuel...he "won" in the end and swaggered (or staggered away from the jeep) trying to look as if he did that sort of thing every day lol!
Its scrap a digi photo at NZdares this round...much to my horror!!! Mine was an example of using the basics that every computer has rofl! a bit of lighting improvement in word picture manager and a cute little telephone embellishment created with Paint! Sharon our resident digi expert has given lots of tips and links to help you out on the blog though, so if you are digitally challenged like me check them out along with all the gorgeous layouts the dare girls have created....cool prize too...I want that little space robot dude lol!
