Two Days in a Row.

I give you all a minute to get back up of the Can you believe it two post in a row!
The above photos are my entry into the Smudge and Sparkle Challenge. This month for $10 you purchase a challenge pack which contained a piece of patterned paper and a piece of plain green Bazzill, you also receive 2 doyles, one green one brown, a chipboard "clog with swirl" and a metal clip. One of the big rules is that you are NOT allowed to add anything including embellishment of any type. This is what I came up with. The photo is of Luke scuba diving in the ocean at Rockingham a few weekends ago. I have cut up my clog and swirl Promarkered and spritzed it and given it a shine with my Glossy Accents. I made the fish,with a bit of inspiration from utube and a very handy heart punch, from the patterned paper and added some kindy glitz and lastly pulled the doyle apart to make it the bottom of my sea.
This entry is for The Craft Stand. Again, it was a paper pack with a few flowers, paper, a heart shaped pin and some bling (mental note must take photo before I cut up pack) I have used a photo of myself, Paula (my friend) and Mum taken in Melbourne last year. I have added some extra bazzill, bling, Kaisercraft flowers and a couple of pins from my stash. I'm quite pleased how this turn out especially my flowers.
So that's it for now enjoy your day, the kids and I are playing Monopoly this afternoon the "old fashioned way" with the board and cash you can touch, wish me luck

Happy Easter everyone.
Wow I can't believe it has been so long since my last post and so much has happened there have been sick kids, redecorating, hospital visits and a challenge win to make the month better, yep I won the Tomorrow's Memories challenge for last month (see post below), thanks so much ladies for choosing me I had so much fun spending my voucher. Over the weeks I have done some challenges for other local craft shops I just haven't had the chance to take a photo of them. I hope that chance will happen tomorrow because I'm having a jammie day. No clothes allowed only jammies!
The happy snap above is of me and the kiddies, made a late last minute decision to pop to the beach for ice cream today, as you can see a rather windy, rainy day but a nice day spent with the family.
This happy snap is of myself and Craige reading a book in his new room and of course Scout, our puppy couldn't resist getting onto the bed, shame hubby only got her "butt" in the frame.
One last thing before I get into my bed, a friend of mine has joined the blogging world and I would love it if you could pop over and say a big howdy, her name is Jo and you will find her at Jo's Crafting Corner, lets hope she is a good influence on me and get me to blog more.
Well that's me for the night I hope you all have a great Easter take care.
Until tomorrow
