Day 1 - Five Days of Flashbacks

Hi Everyone!  I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas day with family and friends sharing lots of joy and laughter.

I certainly had a lovely day with the family which ended with a few hours in the pool.  And thought I would share my favorite shot of the day which gives you an idea of the relaxed way we celebrate Christmas here in the heat of Summer which is our family tradition.  Green and Red took centre stage.

This is a picture of my Mum and Dad about to start on the their prawn cocktail entree.  With warm days a cold lunch outdoors is the only way to celebrate Christmas.  Luckily the flies were visiting their relatives elsewhere.

Anyhow to round out the year, I thought I would over the next five days leading to New Years Eve share some flashbacks that made up my year of crafting.

Ending 2012 and kickstarting my crafting for 2013 I played along with the Art-athon over at ATC's for All and hopefully will get a chance to play along again this year.

I set my three words and goals for 2013.  I started the year well, but it all went a bit astray as the year draws to a close.

Grab button for Cards in Envy

The start of February saw me join the Design Team for a New Challenge Site - Cards in Envy.  Here is a look at the first card I made for their very first sketch.

I was having lots of fun playing with my New Gelli Plate and Splash Inks in February too.  I also got on a roll with my participation of Life Book 2013.

In among all that play we celebrated my hubby's birthday and got away for a few days at the beach.

Well that's a wrap of January and February, thanks for stopping by and I do hope you will join me again tomorrow for another day of flashbacks as I revisit March, April and May.

Lovely photos. We had a wet cool day here in Sydney yesterday for Christmas day so we couldn't eat outside. Today is clearing up now and getting warmer.
Have a very happy new year.
