Hi everybody, I'm here again! That means it's Friday, right?lol How are you doing and how has your week been? Mine has been LAZY! Yes, believe it or not, I've been very lazy...instead of scrapping or working I spent 2 evenings watching a movie this week! Haven't done it in ages!

Last weekend we had Eneko's first birthday party, it was fun, he didn't really care about the toys and cake but was very happy with all the kids there. I made a layout using a few photos:

Credits here.

And I've only done a couple more pages - one for our vacation album (after a while):

And Another one for DigiDare - the theme was to scrap a PHASE:

Credits here.

And I've just actually found out this afternoon that I WON the DigiDare with this one! Not the random winner but the PICK! WOW! I was so surprised! And HAPPPPYYYYY!!!! Totally made my day!

The kids have had a bit of a tough week. The weather is crazy and they're both with cold and caugh. Eneko has been practicing some walking (he's getting better!) and falling. On Wednesday he tripped close to a bench and he's got a nice bruise under his eye:((( There was a chunk of dry cement and I didn't see it. And I was right next to him....:( Oh well, he's still gonna fall so many times. Sometimes I think he could use a rugby helmet:)

Hey, freebie, right? I have been playing around a lot with a new glitter style. It has a lot of possibilities and it looks great on paper (but not on the flowers I made last week, for instance). For now, I've made this alpha for you:

I couldn't decide on the color and then tried to do each letter different but it didn't look nice. So I made all the same. I realized that I haven't really made any 'fall' stuff. So this is it:) It's kind of golden and it looks great on the rich fall colors. I'm gonna make more colors though because it's not easy to recolor. Some could be for spring, summer,! How about adding some wor dart, what do you think? I've done some frames too and they look fab, I'm just working on a layout that I needed it for (can't show you yet, it's not finished:))) I've never been to much into glitter but I find that it can really add some pop to your page. I'm also trying some overlays, you know that kind of subtle glitter that just lightens the LO a bit. Would you like that? Anyway, I always forget to tell you - if you have any ideas, suggestion what you'd like me to make - let me know!!! You know I read your comments:)))

Oh my, almost forgot the DL link, lol!!! HERE you can download the alpha plus bonus paper.

And that's it for today!!! Have a great weekend and see you next week! Oh, no, not next week - we're going to Prague next week so there will be no freebie!!! Do you hate me? lol I'm SOOOO much looking forward to Prague and spending a week with my hubby!!! We're gonna go for walks, eat outside, go salsa dancing...I'm taking the laptop with me but you know how it was with the connection last see you in two weeks! Hugs to you all!

Good Morning!! Love the photo of Mr Man on his birthday, he looks like he is having a blast! :)

Congrats on your win, I am not in the least bit surprised. Your layouts rock!

You had a lazy week and I have had 2 crazy weeks!! Totally CRAZY BUSY at work, but it's all good!

I have never been a huge glitter fan either but a little 'bling' here and there is sometimes just what is needed! (thanks for sharing it with us)

Oh I am so envious of you getting a week off with your hubby, Paul and I keep saying we are going to but 'Life' keeps getting in the way. So have an extra fabulous time for us too!

Chat at ya in a couple of weeks!!

Thank you SO much for the sweet and wonderful comment you left me, it REALLY brightened my day! Big hugs sweetie, I'm okay, my doctor put me on melatonin and antibiotics, and I'm feeling crappy physically, but emotionally I'm doing SO much better!

Thank you for the alpha! :D Have a BLAST next week! It sounds like SO much fun! See if someone can get a picture of you guys dancing? That would be Awesome! :D (I don't ask for much do I??)
