“Jingle All The Way!”

Hasn’t the year gone so fast and only 6 sleeps till the big man arrives!! 🙂 Cleaning up this week, motivated me to put the tree up!! didn’t feel like fighting with our big tree but found this cute one and it has done the job!



It didn’t need a lot of decorating and the colored bauble we had were just the thing! Now it does feel like Xmas! 🙂

“A Bit of a Break!”

Things have been very hectic over the last few weeks. Mum and dad’s care is getting too much for me and we are waiting for a place for them both at our local age care facility! It is a lovely place, and even though mum is stressed about I know she will be happier there!!

I spent the weekend at my sisters, for a catch up and a ‘mini break”, back one day and feel like it never happened as mum is crook and taking her to the doc this avo!

We went to the Ballarat Spring Fest on Sunday and had a lovely time!

My niece took this photo of Alison and I at the festival! Actually not a bad one of us for a change! lol

This was the lovely pond in the Botanic Gardens! Just so peaceful and lovely!

              This is my niece Crystal and I enjoying some time together!!

In between all that, Ali and I even did a bit of Stampin Up! stuff! I showed Ali a cool technique she can use for a class and I dimensional element she can use on a card! Ali showed me also her version of our SU Ornament made with stamps and a the Ornament punch!

These were so much fun to make and I think there mite be a few on my Xmas tree this yr! lol!!

Ok better get going, have a great afternoon!

“First Layout for 2012!”

I had the urge to be creative today after finishing my DD and getting myself organised to start my 365 I haven’t really scraped a layout for a few weeks except for a DT one I can’t share yet!

We have some fab challenges for Dec/Jan set by our fab DT at http://www.challengeheaven.ning.com      This fun one was from our Boss lady Bek, a Misc Challenge; to use mist or paint in green or red and use strip journaling!! So I had printed these few pics of my boys decorating the tree and thought I would use them! I used Sweet Clover Glimmermist over the Tim Holtz holly mask, made a banner at the top with some scraps of Letters To Santa DSP, added the photos under some layers of cardboard, pp and off cut doily and some journaling strips to make my title which is ‘My boys will be never to old to decorate our Xmas tree!”

Hop on over and have a go at some great challenges and don’t forget out first Cyber Crop starts January 27th at 8pm Melbourne time!!
