You know how it is ....its the school holidays and summer....sorry blog lol!

Off to play in the fort Dad whacked up for them...the sheep are most intrigued and can often be seen bounding around it too, inspecting this strange apparition that has appeared on their hill!

Hogwarts fever has struck our household and Harry Potter is the latest hero of the day. Lots of wizard play and sticks which are really wands and spells and potions are the order of the day. I am currently reading the philosophers stone to Patrick and Chamber of secrets to Joseph and they can't get enough!! So I bought all 7 books on trademe the other day and the lady even through in 2 dragon bookends with them lol....expecting the owl delivery any day now!

Here they are concocting a poly juice potion which in case you don't know enables you to transform into someone else for an hour lol!

Joseph found this little guy the other day, by the expression on his face I guess he's not too fussed on this whole flying lark!
On the scrapping front I have been working to finish my album for care2crop which will be zooming its way to its new owner on Monday yay!!

...but I have also managed this past month to sneak in a couple of layouts for Scrapbook Studio using the products I was sent for December...some lovely papers and a transparency by Fancy Pants and paper by Imaginisce, crystal stickers (these are so fun and easy to use for instant bling), rubons by Basic Grey and Rhonna Farrah, the gorgeous twill by Autumn Leaves, buttons and bazzill and some other things which have yet to be played with...Lisa sent us all different kits at random so it was a great suprise to open the box and see what we got...and a great challenge as I have used colours and items that I wouldn't necessarily choose myself...but so much fun to make these items work for me and my style.

And the No.8 wired dares are back! Vicky has chosen a fun dare to start off the new year...scrap something that 'Tickles your Fancy'! So head on over to the blog for some more yummy inspiration to put you in the mood!!

Oh and the Jack Me Up blog will be back on the 1st of Feb with a brand new Jack!
