ANOTHER 40th



My sister, Janine, celebrated her 40th on Saturday night. Gorgeous food -courtesy of her husband, Chef Sean. Fantastic venue (Swan House). Lovely people. The ABC album went down really well (and I discovered some fellow scrappers amongst her friends). Photo shows Janine (centre) browsing the album with her friend, Claire, Mum and Dad looking on.



Only disaster was the cake catching fire - oh, well 40 candles was a bit optimistic!




40th birthday wishes to Delys, too, hope you had a great night.

(And for those who get the Dominion Post - check out page A10. It's Men's Health Week and there's a half page article about the lovely Darryn. )

Hi Mel. I have just found out today you are making the items you wrote about on the Scrapbook Outlet site for the school production, is for Boulcott school. My daughter Molly has just started there hence I am into making spiders at the mo. Its an awesome school isnt it. What are you sticking the eyes onto, are they caps. Sorry I dont have an email address for you, otherwise I wouldove sent this by email. Have a lovely day.

So pleased to hear ya sister loved the album. Who wouldn't. Isn't it interesting when you give an album like that the closet scrapppers come out of hiding. Had a wee giggle at the cake being well lit. Sounds like a fun time. Go Darryn.

Go you on the album! Glad it was such a hit. Bet your sister (and friends) will get such a buzz out of your gift.
