Wow it's been a long time since I posted but having extremely bad Internet for 13 weeks hasn't helped and to be honest typing on my phone is very annoying with those little buttons, but all is good and my Internet is now super speedy wahooo!!!!! The first happy snap is of a little package that arrived a few weeks ago from my generous cuz over in the UK, as you can see it was chock full of Promarkers. Thanks so much Heidi, you spoil me. I have made good use of them. Love ya heaps and thank you so much.
This next photo is of a project I have done for my Aunt (Kylie if you see this sshhhhhhh it's a secret). From left to right you have my Dad, my Mum, Nan, Uncle Arthur (Dad's brother, poking his head in through the middle), Auntie Margaret (Dad's sister) and my Uncle Bill. I stole this photo from my Aunt and as a thank you I have done this. Let's hope she like it.
Some of the flowers are Kaisercraft and some I purchased on Ebay, I have added some Kindy Glitz to a few of them. The sentiment was done on my Cricut. The patterned paper is also from Kaisercraft and the blue cardstock is from my stash. the photo frame was purchased from Kmart with a few alterations it is now a 3d frame, big thanks to Bunnings warehouse and my Hubby.
So that's it for now BUT I have plenty more to post so watch this space.
Thanks again for popping by, I'm about to do a quick blog hop so see you soon, loving my speedy Internet :)

Hi ya peeps
I know it's been a while again but I have just finished another project for The Colony Coffee House. This one is for Mothers Day.
I have cut (on my trusty Cricut using Mothers Day Bouquet cartridge) and glittered 320 flowers to complete these little babies. Each Mum at the buffet breakfast/lunch will receive a brooch and card.
The card stock that I have used is all Bazzill, kindy glitz, Crystallina, on the edges. I'm unable to tell you who make the brads but they were purchased at Spotlight and the white card stock is from Craft Jeannie (who you will find on Face Book)
Only a short post tonight but don't forget to check out The Colony Coffee House, also found on Face Book) they have the most yummiest food and the staff are super friendly!

The Whimsy Stamp and the Distress ink refills were purchased from Craft Jeanie and you can find them through Face book. https://www.facebook.com/#!/profile.php?id=100001433063737
Rick and Jeanette have so many great things and they are all price so cheaply you won't be able to stop yourself.
The other pieces were purchase from another shop but I can't remember their name.....sorry :(
So I'm off to vege out in front of the TV and read my book, yes us women CAN multi task...lol.

Well the school holidays are over so it's been housework for this little chicken but today I was lucky enough to find the time to attempt to do a chocolate bouquet. The blue one is for my Mum for Mothers Day (ssshhhhh don't tell her) and ok I admit it Jo did most of the work but I was there eating and drinking and giving words of encouragement...lol.
The second one (the pink and black one) is for a friend who is having a birthday next week and thought I would give it a go on my own, it's much harder than it looks, I don't think it's to bad lets hope she doesn't look to close...lol
If you would like to order a bouquet for Mothers day or for a special present let my know and I will pass on your details to my friend who does a much better job than me I promise
Thanks for popping by,

Hellllloooo, Long time no post again! OOOPS
It has taken a while but with myself being sick and then one by one the kiddies got sick it has been a very long month, but I'm hoping that things will be back on track now.
This is a project I have had for a while, yep since February, and once again it's for the Colony Coffee House in Midland, ggggrrrrr still can't get the link to work, HHEEELLLPPPPPP!
I have used my Cricut to make the leprechauns, clovers and the black pot, A bit of embossing powder to make it sparkle like gold and apart from the patterned paper for the background all of the card stock is Bazzill.
It was such a fun page to do, I just hope Lisa likes it.
O.k short and sweet I'm about to go back to the table and finish a chocolate box for a friend. Enjoy your day/evening

Well it took a while but I have finally done a card WOOHOOOOO!!!!!!
This is for the twins who are going to a birthday party next weekend, lets hope Caitlin likes it!
I have used a Whimsy Stamp called Queens Cutie, which can be purchased at Craft Jeanie, and have coloured her with my promarkers. The cardstock is Bazzill, the butterflies are cut using a EK Success punch and coloured with a gel pen and Tim Holtz distress ink, Broken China.
The happy birthday stickers were also purchased a Craft Jeanie. I have embossed the background using Hologram White embossing powder and the park bench paper was from my stash.
Do pop by Craft Jeanie's page as they always have something a little different and a great prices.
O.k that's it for me I'm off to pick my daughter up from work. Enjoy your day and thanks for popping by

I'm on a roll, who knows how long this will last....lol Once again this little project is for The Colony Coffee House in Midland, do pop by Lisa makes a yummy Raspberry and white chocolate muffin, still having issues with adding links sorry :( Lisa is having a St Patrick's Day shin dig at the Coffee Shop and has asked me to do some menus and seating place cards.
I had a lot of fun doing these but a little over Leprechaun's...lol.
I have used all Bazzill cardstock and my trusty Cricut Machine with the 'Paper Doll Dress Up' cartridge added a little gold gel pen and wella done! Sounds simple hey, 1 3/4 inch Leprechaun's still sends a shiver down my spine.......
Ok gotta go

Hello everyone, I told ya I would be back....lol. This is my entry to the challenge down at the craft shop in Bassendean, Tomorrow's Memories. (I would do a link but it won't work ??????) You start with a paper pack and away you go. The rules are simple you must use a portion of everything in the pack. That's it, easy peasy!
The picture above is what I came up with. The photo is of my Mum, Leslie and my Daughter, Leigh-Anne. It was taken a few months ago at Fremantle.
I have added a few things to my pack including some teardrop 'jewels' from Green Tara, some bling flowers from my stash and a few Kaisercraft flowers.
I have coloured my tag with Tim Holtz Distress inks and some Glimmermist. I have also used my fence as petals on the large flower which was coloured with Promarkers and then added Glossy Accents to make it shine.
That's it for today one more project done a couple more to go, fingers crossed I get to post them.
Thanks for popping by....enjoy!
