An award, a new kit and a break

We have had a busy first week of holidays. Let's see ... saw a fabulous magician for $1 at the library, kids are playing HEAPS of good ol' fashioned card games - Old Maid for one. When my folks came down to visit (the highlight of the whole holidays according to my sweet boy!) we were all in stitches playing this. We have been to the library again to do origami and magic wands! I "had" to borrow an origami book and today we attempted some more animals. Tomorrow we are off to crafts at the shopping centre and visit a reptile exhibition. Next week is shaping up as we are taking Chonk to Disney Princess's on Ice! So with all that being said, I have decided to take a bit of a cyber break this next week. Wont be online much to blog or do my gallery and blog runs. Time for a bit of a rest.

I will still be doing my photo challenges, our little forum is going along great. Be sure to come and visit and drop me a line if you would like to join our weekly challenges. Really helps motivate you to get your camera out! CLICK HERE to come visit.

Now my sweet friend Vale has given my this award - thank you! I am so happy to share so much of my scrapping journey with you.
Here are the rules for this award: 1. Put the award on your blog. 2. Include a link to the person who gave you the award. 3. Nominate 7 or more blogs 4. Leave a message letting them know they have an award on your blog. to leave some messages!

But before I go I shall not leave without showing you this awesome new kit of Nina's! Sensational. I had way too much fun with this one! And of course available at Oscraps as always.
