I knew it!!!!

Mel tagged me  and when I went to her blog and checked what it was all about I knew it had a high potential for major embarassement…

How come? 

Well, the rules are:

•Go to your photo folder in your computer
•Go to the 6th folder of photos
•Go to the sixth picture
•Put the picture on your blog and a description of it
•Invite six friends to join the challenge
•Link them in your blog.

Aha… you see my point now, don’t you? LOL

Ok, so here’s my 6th in the 6th photo:


This photo is a result of the following combination:

night out with friends + drinks + cell phone camera

Need I say more? lol I guess I shouldn’t complain… this was definitely NOT the worse picture in the folder!!! ROTFL

I used Flergs border from  Spirit of Summer to try and diverge your attention from the  photo itself… did it work? lol

Now for the 6 people I’m tagging:

1. Chelly

2. Darlene

3. Nani

4. Jenni

5. Doodle

6. Jazzy

I’ve also received a few blog awards in the last few days, but the great blogger that  I am (NOT!) I completely forgot to come here and post them…

Lynn and Nani presented me with the Lemonade Award:

lemonadeaward(from Kyra 2-10-09)

It's an award for the neighborhood spirit and friendship our blogs let us all share!

And in addition to this on, Nani also gave me these two:



THANK YOU VERY MUCH, GIRLS!!! It always makes me so happy to receive those!!! MWAH!

I’d like to pass these 3 awards on to all my DSO sisters: Andrea, Beth, Bunny, Doodle, Jazzy, Kim, Lynn, Mel, Shannon and Teriann. And also to my dear friend Chelly!

Hugs to all,

Spirit of Summer Collab - *IMPORTANT*

This is one HUMUNGOUS and GORGEOUS kit, and the most important, it’s for an AWESOME cause. Here are the organizers description, explanation and instructions on how to receive it:


Spirit of Summer  is a charity collab benefiting the Victorian bushfire Appeal. Not only has this affected Australians, but human beings the world over.

Over 30 Australian and international designers have banded together to help support many Australians, animals and communities decimated by one Australia's worst national disasters.



What happened?

On Saturday, Feb 7, the temperature in Melbourne was 33'c by 9am. By noon it was 40'c and by 2.50 pm soared to 47.9'c (a state record).Thousands of people were also about to start running from the inferno that would become one of Australia's worst peacetime disasters. Trees ignited in the blink of an eye. By the time people heard the roar, it was too late to flee ahead of the flames.Unfortunately no one or thing could have stopped this inferno that wiped out communities, bushland, and lives within minutes. Many towns now cease to exist!.After watching interviews with survivors, many say that they cant put into words what they went through, saw or felt on that day.

Why is this charity kit different?

No money will change hands at Scrap N Tag (our host website).

We are asking for your support by donating DIRECTLY to one of the following charities:

Donations can be made

here: The Salvation Army 

or here: Australian Red Cross

What do I get for my donation and where:

You will be helping the people of Victoria, Australia most importantly, but you will also receive this amazing MEGA kit.

There are 167 papers, 326 elements, 2 Alphas and a glitter syles pack as well.


How amazingly fabulous is that and you can receive all of this for as little as a $5.00 donation.(**Vouchers will be emailed upon receipt of proof of Donation**)

But thats not all! For showing us how much you all really care, you not only get the MEGA kit but receive a Quickpage Album if you donate over $10.00...WOW how awsome is that!

Here’s a layout I made using this magnificent kit:


And if you can, send a prayer, a thought towards those who lost everything, they sure can use any help they need!!!
