Digi dare 232

Now that you can do a handstand, nothing stops you. Anywhere, anytime you are totally up for it.
 Sometimes you fall backwards, sometimes you end totally flipped over but any which way I am so proud of you, having started gymnastics just this April and already you have been moved up to level 2. 
Keep practising my girl and the sky is your limit.

Playing along with the digidare today.
All products used from Elise's Pieces: 2011 P365 patterns- black, everyday girl, Dad's day, 365 mix-ins and Garden fresh.

Karen's challenge 106.

My Lo is called Dad's most important job

My journalling reads

the BBQ is James' area of cooking expertise the one time he wasn't around to light a BBQ he set it all up ready with strict instructions

( I really wanted to write more but I didn't want to write on the green spaces I had at the bottom)

So here's what I added on the back of the LO ( no place to hide a tag either!)

When we go away on holiday our little BBQ comes with us- you like to feel your taking the burden of cooking away from me by having a BBQ or three while we're away- you've barbecued in the rain, the snow, in the pitch black, in a thunder storm !

Olivia's challenge 106.

This album is all about my Dad & what he means to me. The title is 'He is...' and each page is about the different roles my Dad plays in my life.

My Protector
My Friend
My Joker
My Guide
My Role Model
My Motivation
My Teacher
My Confidant
My Inspiration
My Everything
The little pockets and tags are for personal journaling in the style of a letter to my Dad, letting him know just how much he means to me & that I value all he does for me.

Sue's challenge 106.

The journaling reads: "When we were kids, Dad used to take us to the pool on hot summer days and sledding on cold winter days. He turned out the lights and played scary games with us before bedtime. He played catch with us in the backyard and basketball with us and our friends in the church gym. These more recent photos show Dad still likes to have fun. Maybe he is just a kid at heart!"

Challenge 106

This weekend is Father's Day.
This fortnight's challenge is "Dad's are usally do-ers.
Celebrate all the things your Dad (or the Father of your children) does for you.
Take out the garbage, provide faithfully, check all the doors are locked up tight at night etc."

And then just because I can my LO is more about my hubby and our middlest and their similarities.
 They share the same good looks, the same quirky dry sense of humour as well as a love of practical jokes and pranking. (think Mr Bean, Leon Schuster and Wackhead)
They both work hard, act smart and love their families first.
They HATE cucumbers and watermelon.
They are generous and will happily give you the last shirt off their backs.

I used Robyn Pali Designs. Available at divine digitals, here.

Colour challenge

 It certainly helped that Elise's Pieces has a brand new kit coming out at the digichick this Friday that matches that colour swatch almost exactly. Great minds think alike?

Rain or shine

 I used Elie's Pieces - Cloud Nine available at Scrap Matters.

Design by Tina

Tina has created some designer stash products, available on sale now at 

Olivia's challenge 105.

One thing that makes me notice the passage of time is music. Songs have the ability to take me back to the time when I first heard them or special events when they were played. For our trip last weekend I made up a CD of songs that we associated with previous holidays or concerts. It was great to listen to on the journey & reminisce. We couldn't believe it will be 20 years this summer since we went to Belgium together!

Unfortunately Olivia's image won't open and she is away so I can't ask her to resend it.

Enchanted studio scraps

 Available in store here.
(I also used a template by Janet Phillips - available through Sweet Shoppe Designs.)

Available in store for $5 unless you spend 4* or more, in which case it will be FREE!

Available in store here, on sale.

So often I find myself glancing at the clock ~ on the wall, in the car, on my cell phone, computer, watch, just to check how much time is left. When do I need to rush out of the door to collect a child, or three? Keep an appointment, maintain my routine yet still be flexible enough to change suddenly if I need to.
