Bit Of A Mixture

Firstly I just want to say ......HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! I can't believe just how quickly 2011 has gone, is that a sign that I am getting old?!?!?

Sneaks Are Up
The January sneak peaks have been posted over at My Creative Scrapbook, the kits are absolutely gorgeous and the Design Team have put together some truly awesome creations, I can't wait until the full reveal. Until then I thought I would share a few sneaks of what I have been up to over the past few weeks.......

Limited Edition Kit

Main Kit

My Creative Sketches Grand Prize
The final phase of our sketch contest has started. If you remember the Grand Prize is a 3 month subscription to the Limited Edition kit.....definitely a prize worth having!! All you needed to do was play along with all three sketches, don't worry if you haven't done that as you have still got time to catch up. When you have finished your 3 pages just post them on your blog and then link the post here. If you don't have a blog just post your entries in the My Creative Scrapbook contest gallery.
The deadline is the 15th January.

I wanted to share a few photos that I took over the Christmas period, on Christmas Eve Rebecca and I went out for a lovely walk and I got a few shots of her that I was really pleased with.

I got to play with my new flash on Christmas day, it makes such a huge difference to the quality of the photos!
I bought Emily The best Of S Club 7 for her stocking, when she was little she absolutely loved them so it was a bit of a joke present but as you can tell by the look on her face she was really really pleased with it!

It is a bit of a tradition that the girls come and open their stockings on the end of our bed...

The best thing about Christmas morning is seeing the girls faces when they open their presents, this year I was really excited about seeing Emily, we had bought her an iphone which she desperately wanted but we had told her she would have to wait to have one. When she opened it she burst into tears, which then made me well up so photos went out the window but this one captures some of her emotion. I was expecting a good reaction but not one quite like that lol.

I think she likes it!

Think that is all for now, I hope you all enjoy the last few days of the festive season.
