Finally Decided to start a blog

After resisting the urge to start a blog for the last 18mths I have finally taken the plunge. No banner to figure out how to create one - so this blog is very much a work in progress.

This is will be a place for me to share some of my scrapbooking and also the odd update on what's happening in the Burney household.

Kicked off my scrapbooking for 2008 with a layout for the Fiskars ambassadors blog

(The picture in this layout was taken when Taylor turned 1 (I forgot what a gorgeous little baldy he was at this age) and he got his Little Tikes car for his birthday - he was so excited....he is actually pretending to look in the pretend rear vision mirror here and backing the car with his little feet - so cute. I have struggled to scrap this photo due to all the bold colour in the picture but the Heidi Grace "Oh So Moody" scrapbook range's colours were made for this photo. Really enjoyed scrapping this old photo - and loved doing the flowers (figured I could get away with this given the picture was taken in the garden). Don't get to do too much girlie stuff given I mainly scrap Taylor.)

I feel extremely honoured to be a NZ Fiskars ambassador and part of a team of such talented scrapbookers on both sides of the Tasman. If you are a scrapper this is a great blog to keep an eye on....lots happening. We all know about the great Fiskars tools and most of us own at least one, if not many of them. In addition Fiskars are releasing an increasing amount of scrapbook product from Heidi Grace, Cloud 9, Lil Davis etc into Aussie & NZ.

Okay probably babbled enough for my first post.
