Gosh What a Week!

Hi everyone Gosh it has been a week, but at last I have found a few moments to get some of my projects finished. This one is for my Mum (sssshhhhhh it's a secret it's for Christmas) I hope she likes it, it has taken me forever to do.
These shadow boxes by Twiddly Bitz are fantastic,they are so much fun to decorate and build.
The photo is of my Munchkins. It is the last school photo that I will get of the three of them together because Poss is off to High School next year :(
I have painted the shadow box with Bashful which is a Dulux paint. I then embossed it with a white embossing powder and then to give it a little shimmer added some Perfect Peals. The roses I have done myself, (I love doing these) using red Bazzill Card stock and added some Kindy Glitz to the edges. The pearls are Kaisercraft and the little "blobs" inside the roses are from the $2 shop.
Well I'm heading back to the table while I have the chance. The twins are occupied playing the Wii and Poss is at her friends house, I'm expecting her home very soon.
So have yourselves a super day and with a bit of luck I will be back with another finished project.
Bye for now

Busy Busy Busy

Hi everyone, Just a quick note to let you all know that I'm still here (I'm thinking about changing my name to Worst Blogger in Blog land) I have been super busy with one thing or another and now with hubby working up north near Karratha it is even harder to get to my craft table. I'm hoping that Saturday the kiddies will sit and watch a movie or play the Wii so I can have a few minutes/hours at the craft table, I have so many birthday and Christmas cards to do. It would be nice to enter a challenge also cause it's been a while. Keep your fingers crossed for me. Thanks for popping by Maree xxx

We Have a Winner

Well Hello every one,
I have had such an eventful afternoon. My day started off really lovely with a tad bit of crafting. Then the school called. Luke decided to fall up the stairs and face planted the side safety rail and gave himself a swollen face, right next to his eye. Poor little bugger it must have hurt. He will have a nice shiner in the morning I'm sure.
The next call was a real interesting one it was from my Hubby who applied for a job in Cape Preston (which is in the Northern Territory) and he GOT IT!!!!!!! Yahoo. Only down fall is he will be working away :( But on the plus side he is only away from home 2 weeks and gets to spend an entire week work free with me and the munchkins.
So this is why I'm a bit late in drawing the winner of my little give away. So with out any more the winner is Aussie Loz. Congrats to you, YAHOOO! If you can email me your address I will pop them into the mail. It is such a great feeling getting something in the mail other than a bill.
Well I must be off dinner is about ready then I'm off to will a few dollars in bingo, like the positive
Thank you to all who entered and leaving a comment
Take care
