A few sneaky peeks

I need a new name for my blog. I came up with the current one on a whim just as I was setting up this blog and quickly needed a name. I have never really liked it. It's not me. It's too pretentious and pompous and well, it just doesn't sound right. But I haven't changed it because quite frankly I suck at coming up with names/titles. Must be the procrastinator in me, I just can't seem to make decisions easily. This is where you, dear reader (hello? anybody out there? LOL) come in. I'll send a RAK to the person who comes up with the name I like the best. It can be about me and/or my style or something completely random. I'm open to suggestions!

Tomorrow the August gallery at Lime Tart gets revealed. I worked with the bright, funky and urban Half Tart. Here are some sneaky peeks. Check out the gallery for everyone's eye candy tomorrow.

Talk about a major shock

I just got an email from Philippa something about cute layouts. I had no idea what she was talking about until I scrolled down in the email and found attached Donna Downey's newsletter: she mentions me!! ME! Can you believe it? I sure can't. My chin just about hit the keyboard that's how far my mouth fell open.

I'm dying to know how she found my blog... if you have any idea please let me know!

So I thought I'd better update my blog. I've been meaning to for a while.

So here we go. I set a challenge at Scrapgal to do a layout with at least five photos on one page. Here's mine.

And one for No 8 Wired, our very own NZ dare blog. We just celebrated our first birthday. Wow I can't believe it's been a year already! Our anniversary theme was Everyday Moments. I decided to record one of the many sayings that Annabel's been coming out with lately. She's making me laugh. I love how her language has exploded again in the past few months and she speaks a whole lot clearer now too. Still working on saying the full words though, especially ending in s, t or d but at least she won't be so noticeably different to her peers after all when she starts school in term 4.

More Scrapgal goodness. This month's theme is "connect". Love what our incredible design team has come up with again. The newsletter was just dripping with eye candy. Here's my contribution:

A layout about the wonderful relationship that Thomas has with his cousin.

And a record of his first black eye (and second and third....)

I'll have to find a way to create a photo gallery or something for all my Lime Tart stuff too. Just received the August Half Tart and can't wait to delve into it!

Post mark date for Memory Makers Masters passed a couple of days ago. Now the hype begins. Not for me though, as I didn't enter but I'll be quietely cheering from the side line for those I know who entered.

Okay I'd better get my act together and get back to reality. I have a 7th birthday party to organise for Saturday!
