completely not stamp related!

ok, so I joined the Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers 27 - and they are a very cool bunch of ladies - check their blogs out on my sidebar! I would love to visit them more often buit blogger and my computer are having a bit of a falling out at the moment! Looks like a truce tonight, so will see how I get on checking them out! ANYWAY>>> there is a point!

One of the ladies has a son, whose school was involved in the Flat Stanley project. Read this book - seriously! it's fabulous! So, we hosted Stanley, and took him all over the north island of New Zealand. And I promised to post a few pics on here - so finally (a few weeks late) here is Flat Stanley in New Zealand :)This is an old plane, fitted out to become a cafe - you can eat your lunch in it! The kids LOVE it!!
This is Ohakune - they are famous for their carrots, and apparently Stanley's favourite food is carrots, so how could we NOT go here!!
Finally, (at leaat for now - Stanley had lots more adventures than this!) Here is Stanley bungee jumping! New Zealand is the home of bungy jumping, so he could hardly visit without taking the plunge! Unfortunately, he was a bit light for the real thing. so we rigged him up from my second storey balcony!

Ok, so I'm a bit late posting this, but I have a REALLY good excuse! honest!
Last night I was a vendor at the Mitre ten Mega Ladies Night - OMG!! They had to stop registrations at 750 people!! that's heaps! I am pretty sure, judging by my voice thjs morning, that I talked to most of them! So if you stopped by my table last night, and picked up a card, brochure, information, or put your name in the draw to win product, HI *waving* :)
I will be drawing the winner this weekend, and will let them know as soon as it has been done - I will also put the winner on here. So check back!

upsy daisy dreams

No it's not blurry - it's meant to look like that! Honest!
I just got this set, and I love it! The reason i wanted it was I saw the coolest card (forget where - sorry!) and they had done a shadowy thing with it. Lots of people have done them, check out splitcoast - they are all over - but they still look awesome!
This uses old olive and kiwi kiss for the upsy daisy, and the sentiment and butterfly from Dreams du jour stamped in riding hood red. The butterfly is cut out and has dazzling diamonds on it - sparkly :)
