The lovely Hey Birdie Range

Good morning, I am up with the sparrows this morning as I am helping in the class room this morning with reading so I wanted to show you this layout.
I was so excited when I saw this range and new straight away that I had to have it. I have bought a few sheet of each as I just love it.
The rubons are so cute I used the little squirrel in the bottom right hand corner, so cute......
I find the Kaiser Rubons so good for value and are very easy to go on.
I also used some BLING on my tree to make it "pop".
Have a great day.....

A 5 year old's card and envelope

hello everyone,
I never thought I was going to be able to be crafty today as I had Reagan's poster presentation to help him with......( oops we haven't started yet and need to have it finished for tomorrow ) and we also have Jaykob's 5th Birthday party to go tooooo at
Delegate you say, Yes thats what I did.
To the Hubby I said "help Reagan with his poster" , I need to make Jaykob a card before lunch. Within in 15 minutes the card was done.
Then I helped Ken and Reagan with the poster.
Must say after the party we still had a bit of work to do to finish it tho.
Anyway here is my card and envelope Ihave done.

Here is my card, which I thought turned out rather cute....
I just couldn't stop here so I decorated the front of the envelope as you'll see as your next photo.

Here I used some raised double sided dots to lift my BUG off the leaves, just to give my card some dimension. I am very pleased with my result ( after all I don't consider myself a card maker ) BUT I am really enjoying
Besides that's all that matters right, ..... as long as I'm having fun and I think it looks okay.

Girly Cards

Hello again, I could wait for tomorrow I just had to post today.
These are the cards I have just finished, as the girls have a few parties to go to in the next couple of weeks I thought the girls could use these.
Kelsey gets really excited with my finished work, especially if it is of her.
If it is raining at your place make the most of it and get scrappin....
Nothing better than scrappin while you have the fire place alight.

Close up photo's

I woke up this morning to see the rain had finally stopped !!!!!
We had to leave home by 8.15am for soccer, I looked outside and thought what a great day for scrappin......
Again I thought NO soccer, and waited for as long as we could before leaving waiting for the phone to ring to cancel....( wouldn't that be nice )
No call , so off we went to soccer . The boys were soaking wet before they even started the game and the rain was on and off through out the game. There was even a time I saw Reagan crouching down trying to keep warm. The boys haven't played in the rain before so it was a good experience for them. Leading up to half time I thought Reagan wasn't playing his normal game ( I thought he might be worried about getting his uniform dirty ) so at half time I told him if he got his uniform dirty not to worry because his coach said he would wash all the uniforms !!!! hahahah ......that will teach the coach for letting them play.
AND after that he played a much better half.

Here I have posted some closeups of my last posting CARDS.
Iam off now to do some more scrappin... enjoy your

Cards Cards and More Cards

Here I have taken a close-up of the right hand side card ( in the photo below ), I actually intend to give this to my nan. On the front I have made the stripe piece of paper open up and here I will place a photo of the kids. On the front I have written thinking of you.
My nan will love this and after the fall she had last week hopefully this card will cheer her up.
As she is quite embarrassed to go out in public due to her bruised face. lol
As if she should be worried about that at her age !!! I mean really she's in her 70's

I really had alot of fun making these cards with some srcaps that I had left over and I now have a fettish for cards. I am hooked at the moment and as soon as I finish the one I have started today I will post it.
I hope my cards inspire you to use up some of your scraps as I think alot of us just put our scraps to one side and forget about them .....
Happy scrappin

Reagan's Birthday

You might be wondering if I have been scrappin????

Well yes I have .... and I do have some to share and some to tease you with as I cannot display yet, but hopefully not for long and I promise Iwill share as soon as I can.

My challenge

Hello everyone I hope you all had a great day today.
While I was waiting for my daughters Ipod to charge, I was browsing through my blog folder and realised I haven't posted this layout. I'm sorry I have teased for so long.
In MAY I gave you a sneak peak a challenge I was given. I was to come up with a layout with some Fancy pants papers and embellishments so here is what I have done.
I hope you all like it.

I just love this photo of Josh and Kelsey, I was actually lucky to get this photo as it was taken at SEAWORLD and the kids couldn't stay away from the water slides. We loved the day out with some friends.

Tip Of The Day

Good morning all and i hope your last few days have been better than mine.
With one child having all the symptoms of the flu ( which was confirmed after a long stay at the doctors) that he has a cold now along with the rest of us. So as much as I wanted to do some scrapping my time was limited.
I have finally got rid of my sore ears and on the mend So hopefully I can get back into what I love and come up with some layouts.

One thing I did learn at MYSTIFIED ( with Heidi swapp and Wendy ) was how to clean the nozzles of your glimmer mist bottles. You will need to purchase some pressurised spray, (got mine from Office works) take the black spray piece off the top of the glimmer mist bottle and by using the long skinny hollow tube that comes with your bottle blow out all yuk that has clogged it up. After acouple of times of this it is as good as new.
But make sure you do get that skinny tube with your can !!!!
So for all you glimmer mist fans I hope you enjoy this tip.

Ipswich Show

Today we had beautiful weather, just for us to go to the show. We got there early this morning because of parking and some of the rides were still getting sorted so we walked around for awhile. Most of the rides were around $5 and $6 each so I let the kids have a couple of rides each and one show bag. By the time you add this up x 3, Yearly passes to movie world seem cheap.
We haven't been to the show here before so the kids were excited and we all had fun. I suppose you could say I was a bit chicken to tackle the EKKA with 3 children not to mention the $$$$ . I thought I would share just a few photo's out of my 174 that I took 2day. I'm sure to get at least 15 good photo's ( one would think or hope so ) to use for scrappin.

This last photo of the 3 of them is my fav !!!!! Lucky they all pose for me. ( don't have any choice.)
2 tired now so I'm off 2 bed.
