WOW, 2 posts in 2 days..now that is a change. Today I just had to show you my latest cards created for Craft Queen.






This week we are featuring a heap of ideas with our new favourite Tiny Twine so pop on over to the blog for more from the Design team.

I am so happy with how these turned out... and they are easy to make, so the only hard part is deciding who to give them to!

Hope you all have a great week.

So jump on over to Bird is the Word and give it a go, winner receives a blog badge and Tidbitz in time kit and all you have to do is use one tiny lil word :)

Bitz and Bobs...

It's Friday!!!

Well, Sorry I haven't been around much of late, so much going on! We all went on a mini holiday down to Peppers at Kingscliffe and Byron Bay.. both were soo soo beautiful. We whale watched and relaxed by the pool and had a ton of fun!

A few pics....

My one purchase on our trip away a vintage tea cup... I just love pretty things and this one is no exception. The cup is filled with a soy candle in the most yummo smell.


Next up our first stop on the trip, a "proper" cup of Tea and cake...


and last but not least, Chris and Caitlin having some fun on the beach... He was more into it than Caitlin as you can tell!!!


Not too much to show you layout wise today, I haven't really been scrapping that much and the stuff I have done is for DT work. That won't change tomorrow either as I'm off to the Craft Fair with Mum. Can't wait!!! Come and say hi if you see me there, I'm always up for a chat!

And... last but not least, be sure to check out the craft queen blog for ideas on using buttons - here is a sneak of my layout.. and next week we have saved the best for last... can't wait to show you the cards I created!!!


Hope you all have a great weekend... if you are going to the show, be sure to pop by the Craft Queen stand and say hello :)

Until next time....

Bird is the word "Together"

Happy Monday to you all,

I am so super excited to show you my first DT layout for Bird is the Word - "Together". Be sure to check out the blog for all the other DT inspiration, there is certainly a lot of inspiration over there!



I also have a tutorial on the Craft Queen blog today as part of their 5th Birthday celebrations - Click on over to see how easy it is to make these tissue paper flowers....





Also a reminder about their challenge this month, just create something inspired by the Craft Queen logo. It can be a layout, a card, something sewn, all things crafty will be accepted and there are 3 great prizes up for grabs!

That's it for now - hope you all have a great week!

Layouts to share...

Hi there!

Thanks for popping by...
I have just a couple of layouts to share today. The first is one I created for Craft Queen with this cutest lil rainbow (even if I say so myself) on it made from Satin Seam Binding.




Chris and the 2 big girls on Fraser Island - it wasn't the recent trip, but many years ago on one of the 2 visits I made to the island. I'm much smarter now and don't go!!!

Next is a layout I especially created to have a play with my Purple Pumpkin stash... YESSS, I did try out for their DT... but, no... I didn't get in *sad face*... BUTTT I did get a GUEST DT spot!!! Toot Tooot... so **HAPPY DANCE** indeed - Go me go me!! So very super dooper excited!

until next time...
