Maybe it was yesterday's date...

... as today I feel slightly more positive and feel a bit more in control, and I managed to finish off the LO that has been sat on my desk all week :)

The Haka was the one thing that I was looking forward to seeing when we visited New Zealand - I do have a fascination for foreign cultures and languages;)
Seeing the Haka on tv is nothing compared to seeing it performed in real life - I can see why the Maori people use it in battle. It was quite intimidating, and there were only 8 people doing it!!
Tom and Mark had a go too - I took video clips of them, no stills, which was a good job as they would have been blurry from the camera shaking as I was laughing so much !!

The LO was done using a May 2006 pagemap, the card is bazzill, and the patterned paper is We R Memory makers. The wooden embellishments I got from KiwiScraps in Wellington - the only scrapbook shop I visited in NZ... The title is cut with Sizzix Nouveau sizzlit alpha, and the buttons are papermania.
The journalling is the words to the Haka that the All Blacks rugby team use - "Ka mate".

I need to organise some pagekits now, as I think I am down to the last one now, and it makes my scrapping that much easier when I can sit and pull out a 12x12 baggie with photos, card and papers already put together:) I am still in limbo with the Photo Freedom, although I did start uploading photos to Photobox last night, and started to put heritage photos into a "traditional" photo album using photo corners.
I'm getting there, if a little slowly.....
