Dare #27 - Keeping it Kiwi

This dare we are celebrating our Kiwi-ness!!

Your mission if you choose to accept it is.... to use those quirky phrases or words that are without a doubt 100% pure Kiwi, that curious Kiwi slang that sets us apart from the rest of the world! You can use it as your title, in your journalling or on an embellishment...anything as long as there is a phrase or word on there somewhere!

Check out these two little collections here and here to get the inspiration flowing, I am sure you will come up with a few more that maybe are not on the lists...if so please share these little gems in the comments.

So rattle ya dags flat tack over to your scrap heap...no pikers please....rustle up a layout, and Bobs your uncle, it will look good as gold I reckon! If you havn't done a dare in yonks, no worries just get stuck in...she'll be right mate!

(get the picture heh, heh)

Please leave a link to your layout at a gallery or your blog in the comments of this post to be in the draw.

Edited: the deadline is Wed 15th August 6pm.



Also if you happen to be the dare girls fave of the week, we would like you to be our guest designer in a fortnights time...this will happen for every dare now...how cool is that! So we look forward to seeing last times fave Lara up as guest designer for the following dare...

Fantastic Dare - I did this one a couple of weeks back after a holiday in Rarotonga and it is quite appropriate for the challenge.

Thank you for sharing the links to those Kiwi-isms websites, there are so many great sayings there that I could make a whole album about them (hmmmm now there's a thought). My layout for this challenge is here...
