Bird is the word "Memory"

Yay, Friday is here, I have had such a big week but made time especially to finish off my take on the Bird is the Word Challenge "Memory".

I loved doing this word, the hardest part was choosing which one!! I couldn't go past my wedding day. It was a truly amazing day and we are coming up to our 10 year anniversary on 29th September - I can't believe it, the time has gone by sooo fast. This one also has some personal hidden journalling :)



and a close up... this is a Purple Pumpkin lollipop flower and I put kindy glitz over the centre for a little sparkle! Cute hey :)



also used some Kaiser, Jenni Bowlin and the pink flowers at the bottom of the cluster I cut off an old top!

Hope you all have a great weekend involving lots of creating!

A Quick Card...

Well it's Thursday already, Chris will be back in 2 days, this trip has gone by FAST!!

I had some spare time over the weekend and whipped up this lil card for a friend. I've used a heap of my dies for my Big Shot - just having a play with what fabric/paper works.



I just love the Prima flower centres and used them as inspiration for the main flower centre... I've used Kaisercraft pearls. The sentiment stamp is also Kaiser and the ribbon, Craft Queen.

Last but not least...
If you are headded to the Brissy Craft show at the end of October, pop on over to the Craft Queen Blog for your chance to win free tickets!!

Sneaky Sneaky....

Happy Monday.. err Wednesday Everyone,

Just a quick snippit to show you today...
Next month holds lots and lots of surprises...ohh I want to say more but I can't just yet...


Be sure to check back early next month for more details!

Chris (my dh) is away on a fishing trip this week and I had the grandest intentions of scrapping until the wee hours... but it really hasn't happened. Instead I've been doing a huge clean up of my scrap space.. before he left we bought a big storage unit from IKEA and it looks amazing now but it has taken me ages to sort through everything!! For the first time in I can't remember all my layouts are in albums too!!! I have had the chance to do a couple of layouts but nothing I can show you yet.... sorry. Be sure to also pop into Kaiser at Robina if you are a local for my latest projects there!!!

Thanks for stopping by...

Happy Saturday

Happy Saturday to you all!

I have had a great Friday night scrapping away whilst watching "In the city" (That's what all us mum's call it) but I stayed up WAY too late!! I've been making a card kit for Craft queen... here is a sneak...


Turns out I am still a card maker!

I also dropped off my latest creation for Kaiser Robina - their new BTP writing desk... and would you know it I forgot to take a pic!!! So... you'll just have to pop in store and check it out :)

So now time to create another layout... it's been a week :)

Hi there everyone!!!

Happy Father's Day

Happy Fathers Day out there to all the Dads (Not sure that there are too many reading my blog though) he he!!

I did this layout of Chris and the girls, it's a photo from years ago that I keep putting off. (Not sure why - I think it's just because it's not girly) Anyway, if ever there was a time to do it, it was this week!



Aren't these the cutest buttons - from Purple Pumpkin? The crochet flower and all the ribbon is Craft Queen


We had a local public holiday here on the Gold Coast for the show, so I've also had a play with my new My Minds Eye stash and love love love it. I've also been working on creating some ribbon flowers, and all this you can catch on the Craft Queen Blog

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and thanks for popping in.
