I'm back.....

Well I got back from my trip to Austria last Friday 15th and I have been so ill with a horrible flu that turned into a chest infection, but thankfully my Doctor has given me some antibiotics and I am finally starting to feel abit more with it lol. So time to update my blog......

Firstly, we had a fantastic time in Austria. We went for my Husband Martin's 40th Birthday, it was really beautiful and snowy and soooooo cold. We managed to do the sound of music tour which was so much fun (for me, my Husband not so much lol). Here are some pic's:

We had a great time, with lot's of yummy cake and apple strudel.

As the new year gets going, a lot of us or setting our goals for 2010 and we want this year to make a big impact! Thinking of that, we challenge you to use your resolutions, or UNresolutions (if you're not into that) on a layout, journal or, well, anything!

This month's winner will receive a generous helping from January's Sampler! Be sure to leave us a link to your blog/facebook/gallery/where ever you have posted your entry for this challenge on or before Friday, February 5th, 2010!

Here is my example, decided to alter a notebook to go with my New Year's resolution which is to write a book. I have always dreamt of writing my our book and this year I've decided to give it a go, so I made this notebook to go in my purse to write down any ideas I may have when I'm out and about:
