Where did December go?

I have no idea! This month has just been jam packed with things to do! I have had an AWESOME December, one of the main reasons is coz I was totally ruined by my Jacob, Bianca and Aleisha for my birthday-yes, way back on the 5th! I got my 450D SLR that I have been dreaming about! Here it is in all it's glory- I was spoiled with the twin lens kit- woohoo- I now just have to master it, lol! I think is is the most fabbo birthday present ever- except the horse I received when I was eight! So, of course, I have been strutting about taking photos willy-nilly-and LOVING it!I have warned all and sundry to wear sunnies tomorrow,roflmao!
I have been so organised with my Santa duties this year. Pressies have been wrapped , patiently awaiting the move from my wardrobe tonight:) I cannot wait til tomorrow- the kids will have aball! I think I am ready there too, my house is spotless, yard tidy, dog bathed, ironing done,washing done- yep- I am just counting down the hours now!Just a couple of errands to do, boring stuff! Bring on Santa!
Among the hub-bub-I have been so slack, and barely scrapped at all:( I have lots of plans though, haha. I think I might try to get to the scrap table tonight. I did this one for the monthly challenge at 123- you had to use a splash of paint, a tree, and bling.Did I mention I love Christmas?

This photo was pre 450d-so not as nice as it could've been, I am so in love with my camera! Even I can take a nice photo,lol! The journey of learning how to take better shots is beginning....well, for now, I will say a Merry Christmas to all, and to all Good Night! Ho, Ho Ho!!!!!

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! Yahoo-

I can feel it in the air-and now that we are in the jolly month of December;lookout! I can't believe that Bianca is finished school for the year in another two weeks. Where did 2008 go?

My first layout to share is for the monthly White with one challenge. I found out about this one at Scrapbook Savvy. I had to give it a go, like, really could I resist a challenge? I took this photo AGES ago, and due to the fact that Ineeded Lime, and scallops, I thought I would scrap Mr Caterpillar. The stitching took sooooooo long, and I speared myself about ten times, but it was worth it!Oh I love green!!!! I also finally got around to the "Peas And Carrots" challenge at Savvy. The idea behind this one was to journall about the differences between two things, ideally siblings. I got to use another recent photo of my babies, who trust me, are like peas n carrots! I have had these papers for awhile, and wanted to do something a bit different- this is how it turned out...

Also, December is a big birthday month for us. I made a card for my father-in-law...I really struggle with masculine. He has a 4wd, so I thought this Land Rover stamp(pity it isn't a mighty Patrol!) would look good, and I love the colour combo of Chocolate and Blue. Speaking of Chocolate, it is a slider card, that Nichole taught me how to make-thanks Nic!i made a bigger one than I was originally shown, so that it would accomodate a block of Heaven choccy! Yum!!!!

Well, that's about it for now- I can't wait to see all the new monthly challenges that will be uploaded in the next day or so! Scrapping fodder for the month ! If you are stuck for ideas, don't forget to drop by FOREVER ALWAYS!!!!Loads of awesome talent, and super challenges too:) Bye for now!
