Finished SENZ projects

It's hard to believe that this time last week I was still down in Christchurch at SENZ... have to admit that I've been really tired since I got back... must be all that creativity! Or else it might be the fact that I now have two teenagers!!! Miss 12 had her birthday on Friday and has joined the ranks of being a teenager! LOL I've done lots of catchups this week with projects and completed both of my SENZ projects so I'm pretty happy with that!

First off is the 2008 calendar. I love how it turned out! I decided to put some quotes on the back of each month so that it looks good from the front and the back. All the photos are of my niece and nephew so no doubt this particular calendar will end up at my sister's place but I've got an idea for another one for me... and hopefully I'll get it done in time for the start of the year!!!

The second project was the altered recipe tin. I love the vintagy feel of this one! I've got a few tins here so I'm sure you'll see more altered tins on my blog in the lead up to Christmas.
Now that these projects are completed I'm going to let myself start using all the goodies I got while I was at SENZ... Yippee!!! Although I did 'break into' my stash for the latest circle journal I've been working on! We've only got one more round before we get our own journals back so it's getting exciting now!!!

Thank you everyone for all your comments!!! I really appreciate them a lot and it's nice to hear what you all think of my projects. I've got a few SENZ swap pins left over so later on this week I'll be doing a random draw of names of people who would like a pin :) Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
