busy little bee this past week.

What a FULL ON week! I am (in a way) so glad it's over.  Haylee turned 6 on Thursday and we had a craft/cupcake party for her on Saturday.  Here are some pics of the crafty things....

This is her birthday card I made for her.  Nothing flashy, i was kind all crafted out by then...

The food table

The cupcakes ready for the party girls to decorate and the ewok biscuits that were supposed to be bees but just didn't turn I didn't say I was good at food!

The lolly bags

The cake pops

The craft table

The girls' water bottles

The cupcake boxes

The birthday girl, Haylee. xx
Great party, the girls had a ball, Hay received gorgeous gifts, loved every one.  She was exhausted by the end of the day and so was I.  Can't wait to do it again.

Footy's on so I'm crafting...

State of Origin doesn't interest me as much as it used to so when it's on, as well as any other game of footy for that matter, I sneak off to my craft room...

First layout in how long?

a while....couldn't tell you exactly how long but thought I would start it off with a kit I bought quite a while ago from Fred the Needle - a Gillian Lester design - love your work Gill!  Got a tad frustrated at trying to make the frame go around all the flowers but eventually got it to sit still long enough to whack some tape on it before it moved again. Another round of frustration to get the pleated paper to stick to the chipboard dress makers stand - and then the ribbon over the top - tried my 12.30am finish and ta da!!!!  Thinking I might put this one in one of my scrapbook frames ....only challenge now is to convince Peter to put them on the wall instead of the football jerseys...a mighty task in itself! 

Scrapping some old pics of Brock tonight so will post when I finish.

Haylee is turning 6

Haylee is having a 6th birthday party (if she lives to see 6 anyway - the way she's going at the moment that's debateable) with 7 of her girlfriends.  They are going to be making a door haanger and I am thinking about maybe doing a cakepop decorating thing as well or marshmallows - not sure yet. Anyway she handed out her invo's this morning and here they are last night all finished....

I used Purple glittery bazzill, blue bazzill and white cardstock.  I used some flowers I had picked up at a craft show, sewed them together with a Kaszazz button using DMC cotton and some brads from an old Creative Impressions embellishment pack.  I used a Tiddly Inks digi and coloured them in with copics..

It's time to get into gear

Just posting the last 2 scrap projects I did has made me realise that it has far too long between drinks...meeting Gill a few weeks ago has spurred me on to pull my finger out and get crafting alot more than i normally do - which lately has been just for an occasion where I need a card.  I now have a lovely craft room with all my worldly craft possessions in one place - it's about time I use it. 

These are the last two layouts I created...

As you can see I need to do some updated scrapping, with Haylee almost 6 and Brock 8 it's time to get the photo box out and some photos printed. 

I might first styart with this years school photos - they came out so nice this year. 

I'm off before I get distracted and lose my time - or the kids take it away like they have done all morning.....

Updating some current work.

This card I made for my friend Tracy for her son's 13th birthday.  He is a mad soccer fanatic and is a really good player too.  The soccer boy sticker i have had in my stash for years - picked it up at one of my very first stitches and craft shows.  Kaisercraft black letter stickers, Tim Holtz kraft coloured Wish tag, The Twinery black and white twine, a 13 in black glittery Thickers and come coloured droplets complete the card. She was stoked with it so I was happy :o)

I was pleased with the outcome of this card - I cardlifted the idea from Verve stamps and used my Verve set to recreate it for my girlfriends mum's birthday.  Red and Black Bazzill, some Kaisercraft rhinestones, Kaszazz buttons, white cardstock and ribbon, Linen cardstock paper pack.

Meanwhile, this weekend I am working on Haylee's 6th birthday invitations.  She's having a craft party (who would have thought!lol) with 7 friends where plans are to make door hangers or something like that.  She has chosen a purple, blue and white theme.  I will post pics up when i finish the invos.

Keep happy xx

About Me

My photo
Hello and welcome to my work in progress....I am a mum of two very outgoing children who keep me on my feet all day. A wife to a man who works hard for our family and doesn't like my craft at all (lol) and a dedicated yet part time Admin Assistant for a charity organisation. I have a love for motorbike riding as well as craft and love to shop - who doesn't right?! Back onto craft - craft in general has been a BIG part of my life for so many years I couldn't possibly tell you when it all first started. Around 2008 I fell in love with Papercrafting, of all forms, off the page, scrapbooking and card making and stamping (my fave). Going from just fun to running my own party plan business with Kaszazz and then back to "just for fun". I hope you enjoy the journey with me as I experiment with techniques, colours and product and learn with me also as I inevitably make mistakes and disasters....all in good fun. Enjoy!!
