Ok so the other day I had a play with some of my materials in my stash and I made some flowers and thought I might have a go at selling some :) All my flowers have been handmade with love by me :D

Here are some examples of my flowers used on scrapbook LO's and a card.

Denim flower perfect for boyish LO's or just as a round embellie :)

Large roses great for vintage LO's or for soft pretty pages.
Card made using the small roses

Its a little bit different......




......ok its ALOT different to my norm but oh my it was fun!!This is my week 4 entry at the scrap twist challenge at 123 scrapbook :) This weeks was texture paste and the twist was it had to be on the background of you project,applied to one of more embellies and use 3 small photos.I chopped up a photo of me for my piccies :) I think I could easily become addicted to texture paste......this canvas reminded me of how much I miss doing my painting and drawing......I think I could get into this multi media stuff its so cool to do!!I used a mask to add the texture paste to the background (Tim Holtz ) and used some tissue paper to get the yummy texture at the bottom of the canvas.Heaps of sanding and inking and painting......I had mess everywhere (Including all up my arms LOL) I used the texture paste on my tag (and wrote the word then added texture by smooshing some scrunched tissue paper into it ) and onto my chippie butterflies-I stamped onto them while the texture paste was wet so they are nice and textured too.

Loved doing this it was soooo much fun!
Its back to normality in our house......awww why does a weekend away in the sunshine have to end? :( I told Al I want to buy a house near the ocean LOL need to win lotto first PMSL

Massive congratulations to the fabulous miss Kate who had her baby at the weekend awwww a little girl who is soooo cute!!Congratulations to you,Mick and Heidi on your new little bubba Kate :)

Okies Im off to clean......oh joy lol

I'd love to hear what you all think of my canvas though......pretty please :)

Our weekend away :)

Al and I had a fandabbydosey weekend up the sunshine coast for our anniversary!The weather was glorious (as you can see in the piccies :D) we chilled out on the beach and had a lovely time just doing nothing lol The unit we stayed in was great the pool and spa where right outside our room so we had a late night spa last night under the stars very noice indeedy :) The room had a spa too and oopsies I added too many bubbles LOL they where starting to overflow by the time I was finished LOL We had a gorgeous brekkie of croissants on saturday and went to 2 different yummy restraunts for dinner.Friday night we has a seafood platter (hot and cold) from a place called M @ Mooloolaba and it was delish!Two of the waiters/waitresses where from Belfast :D Gotta love that!Then last night we attempted to find a teppenyaki restraunt but alas there wasnt one on the sunshine coast :( but we still had japanese from a place called still waters -Al loved the sushi and I wished I hadnt watched a show about yo yo dieting the night before.....apparently eating raw fish can give you hepatitis :O (OMG talk about putting me off eating it!Then again Al ate it so that kinda defeats the purpose of me not eating it LOL) I ordered a dish called ├┐agatzumi"(sp?) shouldve written it down oops.....it was grilled yellow fin tuna with terriyaki sauce and OMG talk about yummy it was sooooo tasty!And,and,and I managed to eat the fish,rice and salad with chopsticks!!I know I was shocked too LOL Normally I get a fork or they do that thing with a rubber band like they do for kids PMSL

Anyway it was just fab to have some time away with Al and relax a bit.....it wasnt long enough but then again are holidays ever long enough? Cant wait for our next get away.....might start planning for that now lol it'll give me something to look forward to :D
The fabulous Tiff gave me this super cute award on her blog *mwah* thanks Tiff!
