A party trick and some vintage embellies :)

LOL ho cute is Princess Morgan!?! This is her new party trick which I think is pretty clever for a 4 year old lol she cracks me up this little chickie :) I used to do this when I was little too but dont think I could do it at 4 lol She has her 1st dancing concert coming up soon and they are all dressed as cinderella......oh man I am hanging out to get piccies of her dressed as cinderella!!!

Do you like vintage embellies? Follow the link HERE to find out more ;-)

We had some crazy weather last night and some humdinger thunder and lightning.....hope it doesnt come back again tonight Kloe goes burko in storms.......Jack isnt phased at all but she will do one of 2 things 1: escape and run around barking at the sky or 2: sit in the laundry and bark at the ceiling LOL both of which are most frustrating and sometimes a wee bit annoying.....oh well thats good old QLD weather hey! Olly loves it because he is brought inside and has a fly around .....he was following me all over the house last night lol

Ive been busily putting together some flowers packs for the crop day :D Lots of goodies to try and sell on the day :D The gorgeous Nic is coming with me and she is making some cool books to sell too :) Its going to be fun! Dont forget to send me an email if you would like to book a seat on the day.......I havent been to a crop day in donks! Im so looking forward to it :)

Its all very girly........

HI everybody! LOL AL is watching the simpsons on tv and me typing that made me think of Dr Nick PMSL

Yay its sunday......I love sundays :) Its a day for lazing on the couch....watching tv.....scrapping.......or in my case goign out for coffee with the gorgeous and fabulous Nichole and Jody :D

Which reminds me to give a MASSIVE CONGRATULATIONS to Jody and Lesley for winning the small business award in our local area woooohooooo you rock girls!!!

I showed a sneak of this LO earlier in the week and now that the CISters night in has officially started I can show you my LO :) I cant share the sketch its an exclusive one for the girls night in but if you made a donation you have full access in the forum at CIS :D Lana and the girls did an awesome job putting together challenges and games and everyone managed to raise double what Lana was trying to raise towards breast cancer research and I think everyone that donated is fandabbydosey *mwah* you are fab!

I scrapped my precious photo of the girls that I'd be lost Granny,my Mum,my Sister and my gorgeous Niece :) All so precious to me and this is a photo from when Granny was over earlier this year so its a photo of 4 generations all together ....I treasure it :)
Some little close ups......I found the little poem on a site and I think its lovely and says exactly what I wanted.
The cybercrop party at Wicked Princesses kicked off on Friday night and Kayla,Kirsty and I have all come with a challenge to inspire you........there is a challenge by Karen and Tam too so make sure you check it out and join in the fun!

This is my example for Kayla's fandabbydosey challenge :D I look like a total goose in this photo on my birthday this year lol and it looks like Morgan is consoling me "its ok Auntie there is chotolate (typed how miss cute cabootie says it lol) cake!" PMSL she is so like me chocolate fixes everything lol
check out how awesome the shimmerz turn out on chippies!Oh my am I hooked on these things or what!I also sprayed the cardstock before stamping on it and it gave the most gorgeous subtle shimmer.....yummo i love them :D
Oh new poppie too!!These are limited and I'll be listing them today on the flowers blog so if you are interested they are first in best dressed lovelies :D
Sarah from Inkurable Stampers sent me these wordstrips from Darkroom Door and at first I was thinking "what'll I do with these" but gee's louise im putting them on everything!They are awesome!I added them to my shimmerz card the other day and now my versatile and fun to use on any creation :) Thanks again Sarah!

This is my example for my challenge at Wicked Princesses :) I created a sketch and my added criteria is that the colour scheme should be some sort of party food :D I picked my second favourite party food (cake is the first lol) Fairy Bread!Yum!and so perfect for these photos of Morgan blowing our the candles on her birthday last month :) Look how chuffed she is in the last one awwwww oh and how cool is the cake that mum made!I forgot to get a pic before these oops but you can see how cool it is anyway :) I used rainbow poppies and a pink one as embellies ........they match the yummy Stampin Up papers I used perfectly :D

Okies better go and get dressed hey!

Have a fabulous day everyone and thanks for stopping by!

This is my example using the sketch :) Im not normally one for journalling but this paper Lana sent me to play with had lines and I figured why not fill them?! lol I took these photos of my ultra cool and spunky peep Josh at the end of last month and I have to say everytime I take photos of this kid he looks bigger and more grown up......slow down a bit man!!I added one of my denim poppies which work fab with any boyish LO's and did some distressing and layering.......I love how it has come together!
Some close ups......

Have you seen Shimmerz???Have you bought any yet?? I bought some and oh lordy I am loving them!!Mine arrived yesterday and needless to say Ive already made 2 cards featuring them lol Wicked Princesses is the only store in Australia selling them and the girls have a sale on!!How fandabbydosey is that!You get to have some fab new product and at a bargain price :D

I used angels wings shimmerz on the butterfly and on the cuttlebugged pieces and also painted some onto the flower........its hard to tell in the pics but its a gorgeous delicate glittery prettiness :D
I used tickle me turquoise shimmerz and babys breath spritz to smoosh into the background piece and then stamped my butterfly stamps on top :D
Okely dokely Id better go and start the day :) Dont forget to join in the birthday cybercrop celebrations at Wicked Princesses and I'll catch you all at the CISters night in on Saturday night too :D

Have a fabulous day everyone! *mwah* thanks for stopping by :)
