I didn't realise that it has been over a week since I last updated my blog. The whole of last week sure has flown by in the blink of an eye! Just quickly updating with a few things.

Last Tuesday I went to see Scrapped - The Movie. It was great fun to meet up with the ladies from Crafting Connections 2006. Thank you so much Kiwiscraps for putting on this event. Now, the doco-movie was great!! I loved how Wes described how he felt abo
ut scrapbooking, how he discovered it... and the people he spoke to to find out a bit more about scrapbooking. Kristina Contes was sooooo cool!! And I nearly fainted looking at one of the women's stash of products - specially when it showed all the Queen & Co goodies. Debs had to calm me down. LOL! It was really funny to see Wes attend a crop and had a nametag with a pink flower. Overall, I loved the movie. Wes told us that we were the first to see the movie on tour! How cool is that?!

Scrappy 500 is over. I didn't win but I had the best time participating in the challenges and I am really happy and proud of myself that I made it to top 10. It was great to push myself out of my comfort zone and try new things. I learnt a lot through this competition and now I can finally post my layouts that I did for Scrappy 500. :)

Yesterday is the start of my last week at 26 years old. I can't believe that almost a whole year has gone by since my last birthday! Where has the year gone?

I went and saw The Devil Wears Prada with my friend Lisa. I LOVE the movie! I read the book 3 years ago and enjoyed it a lot. I was sooooo happy when they were finally showing the movie here in NZ. I've always loved chick flicks.. so this one was right up my alley. :)
After the movie Jay and I went for sushi. It was alright.. nothing that blew me away... I've had better.

I finally finished my layout for Tammy's CJ. Her CJ is about your theme song - a song that best describe where you're at and how you feel about life at this moment.
This song by Natasha Bedingfield - Unwritten is one that I totally love... I play it over and over again on my iPod. I love the lyrics to it too.

For this layout I used the Tuscan Hill & Fall into Autumn kits from Dragon Flaire. I printed them out and use them as you would any scrapbook paper.

Tonight I printed a couple of photos and hopefully will be able to scrap them tomorrow. :) Oh yeah.. I made dinner tonight... after not cooking for the longest time! I wanted to make spaghetti... and had everything. Then i found out I didn't have any spaghetti.. so used penne instead. YUM! At least I've got lunch sorted for tomorrow. Shirley - I know you pop by here.. so this one's just for you! Bon apetit!

Alrighty... that's all from me for now! Off to bed! Will try to update more tomorrow!
