They took us out on the lake for a day and the kids both got up on the wake board, Paul decided to clear his sinus out with a spectacular face plant he he sorry Paul it was funny!
We went to Queenstown for the day and went up the gondola and did the luge. Warning to other parents - don't tell your kids that one fell off YEARS ago BEFORE you take them up this is the result:
She did calm down after I told her I was joking and her calling me a RETARD!
We also walked up Mt Iron - who's idea was that anyway? We were walking/crawling up and this guy passed us RUNNING and get this it was his second trip around it was so hot, mad I tell ya! But I stopped and took this picture of the view looking up lake Wanaka:
It was a great week, thanks so much to Paul and Michelle for putting up with us (I know it was hard work for Paul he he). Do you think you could make farmers out of us?
So then when I get home there is a parcel with HEAPS of new Distress Inks and Sparkling H20's in there and I was so controlled, I even waited a day before I started playing lol. This is a card I have made using the distress inks - they are my MOST favourite way to colour in images, the ole tombows have been resigned to the drawer this just saves so much time!
Now i also found Claudia's Blog (well I have been watching it for some time) pop on over and have a look, she is giving away some blog candy - these are stamps that fit inside the nestabilities as frames, so cute!
Also check Martine's blog - more eye candy and she will ship to international, look at the prize - YUM!
Well that's a long enough post for me - did I redeem myself?
Raincliff has its minimum number met - thank you so much to everyone but there are still plenty of spaces so if you thinking of coming - go on do it! Treat yourself and come for a weekend of fun, relaxation and Scrappin/card making/doing what ever you want!
Nic Howards classes are filling up fast - thanks so much this is great to see, won't admit to feeling a little scared on this one, quite a big punt to bring Nic to little Ole Timaru, but thanks also to the support of our local ladies and the support from Christchurch, Palmerston, & Dunedin oops and Oamaru (I just think of you ladies as local!) we are going well, still spaces but don't miss out. See our web site for details, sneak peaks coming soon!
Have a great week, talk to you soon!

I hope you all have had an amazing new year and didn't suffer from to many sore heads!
Bronwyn and I have been surfing a few blogs and have fell in love with some stamps they are just so cute but this lady Rachel (she is awesome and with a name like that lol....) has some of the images done as cards already, she is doing an amazing Blog Candy "giveaway" and she will ship it to anywhere so head on over and have a look at her amazing cards - this lady is pure inspiration - leave her a comment and you just never know!
The Sugar Nellie and the Magnolia stamps are just so cute (we couldn't resist and have ordered some in for ourselfs but please let me know if you are interested as I am thinking I might bring some in to sell also). Can't wait for them to arrive so we can start to have a bit of a play.
Here is a card that I made for Jamie who turned 13 yesterday (where has that time gone?) He got Guitar Hero the rock band for his birthday so we spent most of yesterday bashing out tunes on that (I am so glad that the neighbour is half deaf cause he would be by now anyway!)
And it is no where near as good as Nic's but here is my take of her class that is available over at tarisota - I so wanted the proper papers (I am such a scraplifter- sorry Beck that said I am unless there is treats as a reward lol!) but had to make do! We purchased the class and then had to use our own papers as tarisota has sold out of that kit - but you can still sign up and do the class like we did.
Well I thats it from me - so from us here at Embellish It we wish you and your family a VERY Happy and scrappy new Year!
