I Dream Of Exploring The World

Yesterday we celebrated a birthday
Yesterday Megan turned 11
As usual the girls were up early
and eager to get the present giving underway
We gave Megan a camera
I think she was excited


as she should be because it’s got more Megapixels than mine!


She had 3 friends over for her birthday lunch


there was much chattering, giggling and they even got to scrap a page each


and we gave them an 8x8 album each to take home with them
I think they enjoyed it and made some pretty cool looking pages!


oh and yeah there was cake, with extra cream like Grandma requested (or so Megan said :)  )


Today we had another early start
Headed to the airport to say bye to Dave


He is heading to Thailand for work
we filled the rest of the day around home
Megan started painting the canvas that Grandma gave her


and because Lucy had been asking to scrap, since yesterday, they all scrapped this afternoon


and on and off through the afternoon I did too :)


someone, a rabbit, has broken my sewing machine
so I found out when I went to sew on the page
So I will be taking that to Mum and Dad’s tomorrow in hope Mum might find out what they have done
I love the Maya Road stick pins


and their mist, which I used on some hearts I made from scrap cardboard


and the journaling :)


Did you notice the new banner up the top there??
I had an email from the lovely Michelle with the new one attached
I love it and am grateful for her generosity, thanks again Michelle!
