Hi everyone! Well i have survived 2 weeks of school holidays! It has actually gone by really fast- we were so busy the first week that i hardly had time to catch my breath - the second week was abit more relaxed because we had the snow we had 2 days at home just chilling as we couldn't get anywhere! The girls loved doing a scrapbooking class on Thursday and made some gorgeous doorhangers from Kaisercraft products.  This layout i did at my crop night on Friday using the Kaisercraft Homemade collection and some new Manor Creations flowers that are brand new to New Zealand and just gorgeous! They come in a range of beautiful styles and colours and are excellent quality- can't wait to use some more of these gorgeous flowers!
This is the irresistable Ella- she is really such a delight and so like my husband- always happy go lucky and cheerful with a great sense of humour and a real sense of fun. Everyone adores her because she is such a character and has such a kind heart! I was so proud of her today! When my sister drops in to CHCH on a flying visit of a few hours enroute back to Dunedin she always trys to take the girls mountain biking and we go to the fabulous MaCleans Island mountain bike track. Its easy going for the girls through the forests and is pretty flat with only a few big hills and one circuit is 10km. Ella had tried last year to go but fell off numerous times and had to give up after 2 km last time as she had badly fallen and hurt her hand. She has been very hesitant about going again as she didn't want to fall again but today she was great and had the best time. Once she had been going for awhile her confidence just grew and then she was off- at the front of the pack all the way really going for it and whooping it up going down the hills and through some quite deep puddles that me and Zoe went round. It was so cool to see her having so much fun and really enjoying herself- and for her to see that she can do anything that she puts her mind to!

Tomorrow the girls are back at school- so it will be a big day for them and they are going to be so tired! They can't wait to get home so that they can help daddy paint our bedroom! They love helping with the sanding and painting - room one of the fix up process after the earthquakes!

Back with more to share in a few days-  including my BLUE page and some Trina McCLune class layouts that a few people have been wanting to see!
