I have been playing today! My lucky girlfriend Tania from Scrapping Mental got a Cricut Imagine for Christmas and I had a chance to check it out last night. Unfortunately Tan couldn't stay long, so she offered to leave her new baby in my care! Thank you! I didn't get any layouts done today but I have been having a great time and have quite a few things in mind.
Here are some more pages for my December Daily that I did last night. I know that this is all I have posted about for a while but I knew this would be a project that would continue on into the new year. Each page is coming together pretty quickly though as I have kept to the one paper range and used the same emblies all the way through. It's me fluffing around with choosing and editing photos that takes time.

Thanks for visiting.

Home again, home again.....

Did you all have a lovely Christmas? We did, and then a beautiful week away where the kids swam, skied and knee boarded the days away. I was so proud of my DD getting back behind the boat after getting a bit of a scare skiing last summer, and once she got out there we couldn't get her out of the water. I finally read Mao's last Dancer (great book by the way) and relaxed, well as much as any Mum on a family holiday can relax anyway.

I have been itching to get some scrapping done so today got together with my lovely friend and managed to get a couple more pages done for my December daily album. Loving how this is coming together.
My new years resolution is to make sure that I appear in more family photos instead of always being behind the camera so that my kids don't think I was a figment of their imagination as they grew up lol.

These are a few simple cards I made before Christmas with some scraps I came across while trying to clean up my messy desk and from a RAK I received AGES ago (thanks Belinda).
PS I'm still working on tidying the desk!

And lastly a pic of my gorgeous niece just because she is so darned cute!

Have you been over to Scrap Jacked this month? The January LO's are up waiting to inspire you and there are lots of prizes up for grabs so come on over and play. We have had a fantastic response so far with some wonderful entries from lots of talented artists. Keep 'em coming! This is my DT layout.
