Bird is the word "Wonder"

Well Hello strangers!!

I know, I'm soo bad, not posting for soooo long - I am in the full Christmas swing and have been focusing on all the Christmas wonder..fullness...

Which kind of brings me to the latest Bird is the Word challenge word "Wonder" - that was a lovely seg way wasn't it!!:)

I don't think I'll ever get sick of doing pretty pages of my little one - they feel like home, so comfortable and easy. I really really loved this colour combo too, so chic!!

Here is my take:



and a close up... Lots of fussy cutting and some Prima.. ahhhh


With only 5 sleeps until the big day, I would like to wish you all the Merriest Christmas and an amazingly blessed 2012!!

Bird is the word "Time"

How appropriate is this word at this time of the year!! Don't we all wish we had a heap more time in the lead up to Christmas??? So when I look at my layout for this fortnights challenge it gives me hope, and reminds me of a little get away we had not too long ago where I got to do the complete opposite to my "normal" world and waste some time.... My layout was also inspired by a quote I found..

“The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.”
Bertrand Russell


ahhh, the serenity :)

So now it's your turn, get your thinking caps on, spend some time creating and let me see you layouts featuring the word "time". Check out the blog for the other DT inspiration.

New month, New challenge... December/January

Up for a challenge anyone?

We all know how crazy it gets this time of the year so this month Craft Queen have combined their monthly challenge into a Dec/Jan challenge. So, you have until the end of January to get your entry in. All you need is a Star, the word "Happy" and some Twine AND you can make anything crafty.
For something different, I've done an up-cycled bag from Typo - these are the best bags eva for this; they are a perfect kraft colour and there is no printing down the side to have to cover up :)


I also made a matching card but the photo doesn't show it very well :( Trust me, it's matching!!

The rest of the design team have been busy too so check out their work here.

I've also done a card kit and the December ribbon club for Craft Queen this month - I told you all I've been busy!!!
Check them out:

Hope you all have a fun week!
