Daughter-Two had her ears pierced at the start of the year. We tried to get it done while travelling in England but ran out of time (cue uncharacteristic tears and foot stamping because she had psyched herself up for it). Fortunately on our return I found a chemist with two ear piercers on staff who did it it one fell swoop. So quick she could barely believe it had been done. She said it did hurt a little bit ("yeah, I lied" I said)
Another wonderful Australian digital scrapbooking star - Jenelle from Melbourne, whose gallery is full of gorgeous beach layouts. She is taking a break from the Designer Digitals team, but has been a great source of inspiration there.
