Did ya miss me? Anyone? LOL....I've been in New Zealand on holidays for the past 2 weeks, eating this:
DH's whitebait [Hokitika whitebait for those 'purists'!!] patties. YUM!!! And yes, some NZ yams tucked in there, too!
And Tom Christened this one - his wee Great Grand Girl - whilst we were over there doing the 'catching up with all the family' thing.
So a sort of holiday! We did scoot over to the West Coast for a couple of days. One thing NZ is pretty good at is this:

BIG apologies for not visiting any of your blogs, or commenting on your posts. And like Lynnette says, when you look at Bloglovin' & see the [literally] hundreds of posts....then the's all bit overwhelming.

Go check 'em out....gimme some more work, LOL!!]
MEANWHILE, I put our laundry bucket to good use & pulled out some winner winner chicken dinner [as Mitra says:)] names......soooooooo......drum roll....CONGRATS to the following girls!!!!

Thanks so much, girls, for joining in & taking these off my hands. I reckon I'll give you a couple of weeks & if I don't hear from you, I'll send 'em off to a new home anyways:)
Now, I need to get the bags unpacked, washing done, etc etc so I can head out into the play SCRAP room, I mean....& dig into some LOVELY goodies sent me by 7 Dots Studio, Sandy A, Jo R & ARTified
That's the fun bit of getting home, right?!!!!
BTW...I've linked the names so you can take a peek at some lovely, lovely scrappy blogs & see some tips & tricks & different ways of scrapping. Sharing the love is what it's about, I reckon.....
So happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
