(Deck of me - all caught up, again)

I've had to play catch up again, I haven't been particularly good at keeping up with the Deck of Me challenges, but now they are done. I had a goal of finishing before the end of 2007. I just missed that deadline by about 1 hour. Suppose that's not half bad.
 Week 45 was about self realisation, so it's fitting to have the a-ha exclamation on it...


#46 was about Rejuvenation and the best way of getting rejuvenated (for me) is having fun and scrapping with my friends + going on SPA vacations to Tallinn, Estonia (I've been to a couple and it can be RECOMMENDED)
 #47 About my happy place - I suppose there's so many places I'm happy so it's not easy just choosing one. It's great being around family and good friends, at a crop, on vacation, on the massage table and behind the counter of Scrappejungelen.
 Prompt #48 was Ideas - and I always find it's easy to get great ideas if I just have a seed, something to inspire me or challenge me. Blank canvases on the other hand are just daunting.
#49 Time Flies - I immediately thought of the song "Don't want to loose you" by Gloria Estefan, with the line: Time flies when you're having fun - and how true that is.
#50 The greatest gift - made me think of 2 gifts I got when I was a kid, 1 - the doll my Farmor gave me the Christmas I was 8, I had wanted it for months, but was prepared that I would not get it. My was I happy when I unwrapped that doll. 2 - the Christmas I was 1.5 years 
I got skis, boots and ski-sticks, I was so thrilled I just had to try them a few times across the livingroom floor.
#51 Made me think of you - pink papers, tickets and journaling spots always reminds me of 2 små/Hanna. They are a vital part of her wonderful scrapping style.
#52 Art - to me art is paintings, music, literature - and the epithome of it is the Botticelli painting "The Birth of Venus". One day I'll definately go to Florence, visit Galleria Uffici and just stare at it for hours...

Thanks for looking, for all the wonderful comments I've gotten and for all the absolutely beautiful cards everybody have shared! It's been a great year, and 2008 is going to be even better.

Happy New Year!
