I love American Crafts papers and products and was so happy to get some in my Scrapbook Studio DT kit recently...the little chipboard piggies are sooo cute and in the same pack you also get elephants, speech bubbles and jigsaw pieces...good value!

Scrappy stuff first up....My layout for this week's NZ dare ...it was Vicky's turn and the dare was to take a picture with you and someone else in it doing something you do every day..morning tea time...so yes that is why there was a pic on the blog with me in it a few days back heh, heh! It was a challenging dare to think about how I was going to get the pic I wanted, and in the end it was a complete fluke..yay for the self timer button....but I'm glad I persevered as I love the shot....and they wouldn't be dares if they weren't a challenge so hope you all give this one a go too!!
We are in week 3 into the So You Think You Can Scrap competition at Scrapbook Studio....the gallery is brim full of gorgeous layouts and the girls have been scrapping their butts off each week creating some stunning layouts! The aim of the competiton is to encourage you to try new things with your scrapping and its been great to see everyone rise to the challenge...cracks me up to see everyone having a bit of a freak out at the beginning of each challenge and then by the end they are really proud of what they have come up with...keep it up ladies you are doing GREAT!!
Only 2 more soccer games to go!! how quickly did that soccer season go by! Very exciting game yesterday...both teams were evenly matched and it ended in a 7-7 draw...Joseph scored one of the goals which is always a great boost for the confidence...not sure if they'll be playing soccer next year though...as they've been learning to play hockey during school and they've both asked if they can play it next year!! Well I'm all for it being a hockey player from way back and good to try different things...but we'll see wait and see what they feel next year...maybe they'll be into rugby by then lol!!
Here is a little joke that Patrick made up...it cracked me up...I don't know why it just tickles my funny bone imagining it...for ages now he has been trying to get the concept of what makes a good joke and we've been suffering for ages under a barrage of alot of very unfunny made up 'jokes' lol!! Joseph went through this stage too...where you don't know whether it is best to pretend to laugh just to make them feel good or not!!
Anway Patrick's joke of the day....
Q: What is green and red and white?
A: Peter Pan jumping from cloud to cloud with his butt on fire!
Thought Granddad might like to share that one with the fella's at Golf ha ha!!
