Xmas and new year wrap up and my favs of 2009

Oh dear I am such a naughty blogger. I have just realized that I haven't updated my blog for a little while. Oops lol I think I have made up for that in this post. So you may want to grab a coffee.

Ok here goes.
Xmas Missy was up at 6.00 and all excited about the pressies under the tree and in her stocking.
Here is one of the few I snapped. She wasn't sitting still long enough for me to get
Her favorite pressie from Santa is her Bop it. Just loves it.We had breakie here with friends Jane and Jim and Santa came round on the back of a ute to deliver some lollies out front. Here is Missy waiting for him. Not very patiently mind you.We were all surprised when he called out Merry Xmas Asher as he tossed the lollies out from the back of the ute. We think Santa had words with Uncle Gareth. lol After our friends left we headed up to my parents place where we caught up with my sisters. Missed my brother and the five kids this year as SIL refuses to spend xmas lunch with anyone but her family.
After that we came home for a bit then headed out again, down to Mandurah to spend dinner with Craig's side. Home late and we all crashed.
The next few days we did not that much at all. I took Missy out to the movies to see the chipmonk squeakel with a friend, we went and seen Avatar with friends the next night.
New years was a quite one. Friends over for dinner and videos. We we so engrossed in the video that we didn't even know that new years had passed.

As for scrapping well I have done a bit, mostly working with my next Lime tart dt kit. Boy it is yummy. Want to see just what I have been playing with then pop on over and check it out on the blog. I've been having fun for sure.
Here is a little of what I can share.
52 Weeks.
Well no more pages scrapped yet. Have the pics printed though.
A birthday pic
A Christmas pic
and a pic of this layout.I created it for a challenge over at Artistic and seeing as I started my 52 week album with a pic of my first layout of the year I thought it would be good to finish it with my last.
I am so glad that I kept it up. I so didn't think I would. I will have to take a pic of my chunky album.
I also played along with two challenges at Mystical and created this layout for my friends sisters albumand this one for our family album.I also managed to finish of my last dt layout for the year over at Just scrapbooking using one of the pics from Missy's birthday photo shoot.
Favorites of 2009.
2009 seen the start and ending of some great scrapping vetures for me and I thought I would share with you all my favorite projects from each one.
Lou asked me to join her extremely talented team. I had a lot of fun jacking last year and I am staying on for this year.
This was a scrap diary for last year. lol I just finshed altering this years one a little while ago.
Scrap Therapy
After 1 1/2 years on the dt there it was time for me to move on.
This page was created for a sketch challenge during one of the cyber crops.
Scrapping the music
It was also time for me to leave my first ever challenge blog team. This is my favorite layout done for one of their challenges.Ad this-blog no longer active
After playing along with one of their challenges I was asked to join the team. I stayed on for about five months.Lime Tart
I joined the very talented team. My first ever kit club dt spot. I am enjoying playing with the scrummy kits that Philippa puts together.
Here is my favorite Tart layout although it isn't mine now. lol I scrap napped my friend Julie's gorgeous little girl and she has the layout now.Purple Onion
Not a new dt spot last year but Michelle has asked me to stay on for the next year.
Just scrapbooking
Not only did I start teaching here but I was also asked to join the design team.
Here is my favorite class layout and my favorite dt layout.Let's get shabby
Would have to be one of my best ever scrapping accomplishments this year. After a chat with my friend Mandy where she said she was going to try and find a shabby challenge blog I mentioned to her that I didn't think there was one and that she should start one. Well that was just the push that she needed and Lets get shabby was born.
Here is my first project created for our challenge blog.and here are a few just because layouts.

Well if you all have made it this far you have done well.
Till next time as always thanks for popping in, any comments and happy scrapping.
