Even if I am a little late. Gee it's been a busy start to the year so far, which is really terrible because I'm supposed to be on holidays & relaxing!!! Ahhh well, never mind, I'm sure things will quieten down one day....hah!!!
How was your Christmas? It was a wonderful day here, quiet but lots of fun.
We ate wayyyy too much, all got spoilt & enjoyed each others company very much.
I just have to share this adorable photo that I took of my gorgeous little grandson.
My daughter raced against time to get this cute little hat knitted for him in time & it was so worth it to get a photo this gorgeous.

Hope you enjoyed your first Christmas baby boy.

I hope 2010 is a wonderful, happy & fulfilling year for you all. It's looking like it's going to be a year of change for me. Lots happening at the moment but I'll fill you in on that another time.
Change is a good thing though. It can bring many new experiences & opportunities, as well as challenges, but I'm really looking forward to something new & interesting in my life & feel ready for it.

It was Chloe's birthday shortly after new year so I was back into the card making quick smart, to make her this birthday card.

I had some other cards to make too but unfortunately I can't show you those ones....they're a secret, LOL.

Before I go, I just wanted to let you all know about a great challenge that is being held over at Scrap Pile.
Here are all the details:
