Happy New Year 2014!!!

Hey Everyone

I hope you had a fabulous New Year.... me I just watched the fireworks from Sydney on TV!! But still I loved it.... My favourite is the waterfall off the bridge, I am glad that they have it every year.

So 2014, I hope brings lots of joy.  Ruby is starting school in a few weeks, and I am a bit nervous about how she is going to go.. She will take it in her stride I bet, she loves school. I guess its hard for all parents, but I think just a bit harder for kids with special needs.

So in between now and then we are trying really hard to get her toilet trained, so far so good and I think she is starting to get the idea, which is great, because she has significant development delays, so it takes longer for her to learn some stuff, which is why we haven't tried before.... she just wasn't ready! I just wish some people who don't know the circumstance will keep their mouths shut - their comments are totally bulls*it, but thank goodness they are in the minority! 

Anyway, I wanted to share a card I made yesterday, I was going to post it yesterday, but the laptop decided to go a bit nuts on me, so it took a little bit to get it shorted!

My card has Star on it from the Little Circus Moscow collection.  I finally received my stamps... took a while for them to get to me from the USA.  I have it hanging on my super cute Melissa Francis coat hanger that I got for Christmas from beautiful lady... Kylie... she was my secret Santa!  I have also used the little feather die doohickey which was also part of my pressie!! So here it is, I hope you all love it as much as me:-)

So there you go.... Magnolia Down Under Challenges is having a little bit of a break right now, but we will be back in a week or so, which some interesting and fun changes, new sponsors, and awesome challenge themes.... so stay tuned, our 5th year is going to be massive!!
