2011 Wall Calendar

I'm working on these calendars as gifts for my family. I have done this every year for years. This year I've gone for a theme of "Three Little Girls...". Each page is a picture of my sisters and me somewhere together - from the late '60s and early '70s. I've used templates by Roadside Designs at Two Little Pixels. Her templates are perfect for someone patterned-paper-and-clustered-embellishments-challenged like me. I'm very lucky to be on her creative team!

This page created using the kit Simplicity by Sabrina Creations at Two Little Pixels.

This page was also created using the kit Simplicity by Sabrina Creations at Two Little Pixels.

This page created using the kit Dainty by Creashens at CatScrap.

If you haven't tried one of her templates, here's your chance. Starting 30th November there will be a download a Day for 25 Days . . . Details announced on Nov. 30 . . . on Roadside Designs blog

I've had a sneak preview and I love them!
Don't miss out!

{inter}National Digital Scrapbooking Day

Well, for digital scrappers this is a busy weekend with online chats and blog hop freebies. The dilemma for us in Australia is whether we can bare to sleep and miss the online chats!
Anyhow, at twolittlepixels there is a collab kit that you can pick up for free any time this weekend if you spend $10 in the store:

I have used it for a couple of pages:

And the party continues all weekend with 30% off...
Enjoy your weekend :)

They say a change is as good as a holiday, and heaven knows I'm easily bored. So here are some changes at my place:

computer upgrade

My computer died. It had some malware. I knew the minute that little window popped up saying I had viruses that it was a big fat lie and closed the window. Trick is that closing the window INSTALLS the malware. And then it disables all of the malware detecting software that one has installed on the computer. Whoever makes up these insidious pieces of code?!
So I asked the experts to clean it up for me, and install heaps more RAM and an extra terabyte drive and superfast 64 bit Windows whilst they were at it - turn a negative into a positive, yes?!

another year older

I had a birthday. Not a significant one (that's next year {sigh}), but it was lovely. We celebrated by having dinner out in our new patio on our new table and chairs. My eldest daughter bought me the jug for my birthday. My birthday candle served a dual purpose - it's a citronella candle. I need to stock up on those!

exam time

Middle daughter is studying like crazy for exams. Her determination and disciplin are amazing. She doesn't take after me or her elder sister. She is growing up so fast.

new cupboards

My youngest has complained that she couldn't keep her room tidy because she needed better cupboards. So now she has them!  We shall see if this makes a *real* change to her room!

new CT call at twolittlepixels

And there are changes a-foot at the twolittlepixels digital scrapping site, too. It has a new blog and is putting together a new dynamic team. Here's the call:
Lots of opportunity there! I'll be staying on as one of the site CT members. It's a lovely community.

But I think all that is enough change for me for a while! I'm looking forward to getting back into a groove (with a new computer ;) ).
