Dare number 26 - Everyday Moments
Hi everyone! Wow, what a fun time this last year has been! Thank you all so much for your interest, support and wonderful dare challenge entries. They have all be so inspiring to us and fun too!
Well this fortnight we have a heap happening for you... you see its our birthday and we've decided to give you the presents. LOL.
So our first pressie is a guest designer......please welcome the very special Nic Howard!
I'm sure you all know of Nic from NZ scrapping circles and have seen her work in various magazines. Her book called Thats Life has just been released this month and is a wonderful way to think about scrapping. Its filled with inspirational ideas to get you thinking about the everyday things in your life. Stuff that you take for granted, yet if they were gone you'd miss.
And here is an everyday moment LO from her book:
We dare you to look around your life and create a LO about something that is just a normal part of your everyday life.
Here is my take on this fortnights dare. It is a typical conversation I have with my children. And it typifies what they love. Their Daddy being home making pancakes. I'm so going to miss these simple things that delight them so easily, when they grow up!
And by entering this fortnight you could win one of 3 prizes.....yep THREE prizes from our very special sponsor.
How can you get your hands on these amazing prizes?
Enter the challenge by putting a link to your LO in the comments section. At the end of the fortnight we'll do a draw for one WHOLE set as seen above, then we'll choose our fav LO for another whole set, and the third set we are going to split up and do a draw from the people who have commented and they will get a little something each.
Last because we want to keep inspiring you and making this site more fun, we'd love to get some feedback from you. Theres a questionaire following and we'd love to see what you think. If you're a bit shy, please feel free to email Lianne at: RANDLGRAY@xtra.co.nz But we would really love to see your thoughts/ideas/comments:
1. What time frame would you prefer the dares to come out? Weekly/fortnightly/monthly?
2. Do you prefer technique, product, theme based dares, a combination or you don't mind?
3. Are you happy with the current way we award prizes? If not, how would you prefer to see them awarded?
4. Are you happy with us recognising our favourite dare entry? Yes/No
5. Are the dares daring enough? Yes/No
6. Do you prefer the contributors LOs all in one post or uploaded over several days?
7. Do you have any other suggestions? Or comments to add.
Thanks guys! Can't wait to see your gorgeous creations! Have a fab couple of weeks, and keep checking back cause there's going to be more LO's added very soon!
Enjoy the Birthday dare everybody!
LesleyMy layout is about the soft toy Amanda has always taken to bed and how this year that has changed a little and she now allows other soft toys in her bed! And how for a while I would find them all lined up at the top of stairs each morning. Too cute!
JoMy layout is about something that literally happens every single day in our house. As soon as I get up our cat, Puff, is yowling at me for his saucer of milk. Puff and our dog George are really good friends and George is only too happy to wait patiently while Puff has as much milk as he likes and then he digs in after Puff has walked away. I can't believe how patient my usually exuberant boxer is with the cat!
LianneHere's my layout. Finally got the chance to do a 6x12. Been wanting to do one for ages.
Every week day we spend an hour in the car together driving. It's become a good time to catch up & just talk about things. I've been thankful for this time together that has made us quite close.
MeganReal everyday thing here, getting the mail. It's a big thing in our family to be 'Old Enough' to get the mail all by yourself.
Old enough to remember the code for the door lock
Old enough to remember our PO Box number
Old enough to know the correct key
Like his brothers before him, Ben is now Old enough to get the mail.
I'm finally writing down all those funny things the kids have been saying. There's a gem almost every single day. Here's one from my girl last week.
