G'day mate!

Happy New Year everyone. Hope you all had a fabulous holiday.

If you're like me and are finding it tough to get back into crafting mode, check out our first challenge of the year at Totally Papercrafts hosted by the lovely Anne.
We have a nice, easy sketch for you to follow,  designed by our very own Sue.

I rotated the sketch to suit my design - as long as we can make out the original sketch on your project, that's fine.

 For a long time my Mum & Dad spent the start of each year in Australia, visiting friends. Then, because of their health problems they haven't been able to go for the last 5 years, but they are now heading back there at the end of Jan. Wish I was going with them :-)
Soooo - this image is perfect for my Dad's Birthday tomorrow. That is just him (minus the beard) with his Aussie hat and thongs and a tinny in his hand :-)

Please head over to the main blog to check out the amazing work of my fellow teamies and, if you're playing along this week, you could win a  $25 credit voucher to spend in the Simon Says Stamp Store.
