Noah GO FOR IT!!

Noah made Christmas Cards on Saturday.
I setup the dinning room table with all my card making supplies
card stock, stamps, glitter, emblishments, inks, ribbons etc........
Really mum???  Noah asked " YES" Lets have fun :O)
Noah played with everything, With only a little help from Mum with the punches.
Check out his Christmas Cards - 
Great Job Noah :O)  

Five things about myself

Until today,  I didn't know blog awards existed - Thank you Sherryn 

In order to accept the award I need to share 5 pieces of information about me that you don't know, 
and I think nominate another five GREAT bloggers

1. I had a nifty 80 for 3 years as my main ride in my teens.
2. My first BIG purchase was a caravan which I lived in for 2 years on friends sections. 
3. I collect eggs. 
4. Not into rugby
5. Always breaking things - lucky I live with a handyman. 

I would like to pass it on to five talented ladies, 
Just love visiting your blogs

I've had a busy November, creating lots of layouts to share.

My two nephews Jake and Zach,
 Lots of cutting on this layout!!
I had to buy 2 pieces of this lovely PP as I knew I'd want to cut the paper up for laying.

 This layout was inspired by a layout in last months Scrapbook Memories mag,
I used lots of scraps for a bright and fun layout.
Noah's first school disco :O)

the other half of this double page layout, 
Lots of bright circles with Dimension Magic and Kindy Glitz,
And course Dad and Noah.

MY Dad,
I decided to use this PP for a male base layout,
And it just worked from there!!
Really happy how it finished up :O)
I do enjoy mixed media,  Lots of different things with no combinations.

"YAHHH" We are all heading towards December.. Santa is getting ready!!! 
Time to start making Christmas Cards!!!!!
Talk soon, take care.

Birthday Card

I made a birthday card for my boss last week, 
 A5 size allowing room for everyone at work to sign. 
Karen has been so supportive, So what other way to say 
Thankyou then a birthday card made just for her.  
I purchased this beautiful Hero Arts, Silhouette Grass stamp from Bookem.
Grass and Happy Birthday also stamped inside the card (forgot to take a photo)
Something different from what I normally purchase however makes a great background stamp I thought.
