Photobucket

Photobucket


We took a snowcoach ride up onto the Athabasca Glacier. It was amazing and so I have tried to get as many pics on one LO as I could. I think there's 11.

Our Christmas Tree 2008



Based on a design from SI mag Nov issue. I altered it slightly to include only one Xmas tree pic in the middle of the wreath. The colours match our tree and room decs, in fact some of the embellishments were room and tree decs, lol!!

"Cats Sleep Anywhere" Minibook



Based on this poem;

Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair.
Top of piano, window-ledge, in the middle, on the edge.
Open draw, empty shoe, anybody's lap will do.
Fitted in a cardboard box, in the cupboard with your frocks.
Anywhere! They don't care! Cats sleep anywhere.

Eleanor Farjeon (1881 - 1965)

Using pics of my little furries up to no good around the house!
