As promised...

a photo of the birthday boy -



and not to be out done, a photo of baby brother at the park on NYE -



We didn't put a lot of candles on the cake, having learned from past experiences that icecream cakes tend to melt when subjected to fire LOL !!! Jacob had a great day, seeing Alvin 2 at the movies, getting Macca's for lunch (Hi Dylan !), and then having his mate Ben stay for a sleepover. He also got some fantastic presents, and some money to spend !

On the scrapping front, the first NVS challenge collage has been released ! How exciting !



Simply create a LO using this collage for inspiration (you can use anything, one thing, or everything), and provide a link to your page, in our comments section. Be sure to tell us what inspired you too !
Ali, owner and creator extraordinaire of The Lovely Teaspoon is our sponsor for January, and the prize is a $20 Gift Certificate to Ali's Etsy Shop. Check it out...Ali has something for everybody !
Here is my LO for January -




Also, the Forever Always DT call is underway, and we are really after some fun and enthusiastic people to join our family. So if you love scrapping, and can commit, we'd love to hear from you. See my previous post or visit Forever Always for more information !

And finally...the January Challenge for ARTastic is Pro Hart's Floral #2 -



Simply create a LO inspired by this gorgeous painting, and submit to the ARTastic Challenge Blog for your chance to win a prize ! It's that easy !!!  Hope to see your entry this month ! Here's mine -
