a RED letter day for me

well actually I think it will turn out to be yellow but none the less still a red letter day for me!

Why red? Well after 6 years and two kiddos in the mean time, and procrastinating about thinking about going to get my restricted motorcycle licence...

Today I did! Sat the practical test and passed with flying colours!

So in six months time I will be able to go for my full licence, one of the few benefits of not having your age start with a 2 or less! Mind having said that the testing officer as he was writing out the temporary licence made my birth date this year! Not bad hey for a one month old give or take a few days to sit and pass her restricted test!

Chris is already looking at a bigger bike for me, and is trying to encourage me into a Guzzi or a Beemer. I am reluctant to go over say 750cc but he is showing me some awfully nice looking thous as he says though they handle like a 250! Tee hee...

So are you happy for me? Or terrified that one day I will inhabit your part of the world if only for a short time and be terrorising you and others on the roads in your neighbourhood!

Wanna see something fun?

Well I think its fun!

Love Sharon calendar kit

And makes for an easy peasy Christmas gift. And even if you have never ever digi scrapped in your life you can use these. They are that easy to use! Slip some photos in behind, print them off on your home computer, get them comb bound and there you have it, instant and easy peasy! Looks like you have worked for hours and hours and for this week only they are 25% off.

And take a good lookie at the girlie in the red shirt! Recognise her? Yep thats my big girlie.

Some very exciting news!

Well I think so anyway!

I have had to keep these two bits of news quiet for some time now and the excitement has near on done me in! But now in the same weekend I can shout out long and loud both bits of exciting news.

Okay so which first, that could be a dilemma! I don't want anyone thinking I prefer one to the other because that would so not be true! I am very excited about both opportunities.

So after tossing a coin here we go ...

I am very happy to announce that the wonderfully talented Sharon Kenealy and her partner in crime Megan Leeson aka Vintage Charm have asked me to join their team over at their BRAND SPANKING NEW site

and here are a couple of pages I have created using their designs. So much attention to detail, fantastic colours, so very easy to play with, uhhh hold on maybe thats meant to be WORK!

And yes I was laying on the road to get this shot and yes that is Anya's legs wandering over the road in front of me, but before anyone goes calling the men in white coats or child protection I did have a spotter watching for cars, and Anya did look before crossing the road okay?!

You can see the credits for both pages right here at the Two Little Pixels gallery

and for my second piece of exciting news ...

Well I'm totally thrilled to announce that I have been asked to write digital scrapping articles for Up2Scrap. Keep an eye out if you are in NZ for my articles appearing from next year.
