Circle Circus Stamp Set

This is Definitely one of my favourite sets in the stampin Up Catalogue. I just love it !!!!!!

I have scrapped a layout with this beautiful photo of my son. In the photo his face is out of focus and the flower (well I should say weeds) he is holding are in focus. I just love the effect, so to highlight this I have coloured the flowers with blender pens. I am terrible at photo shop so this technique is much easier. Just simply squeeze out some ink onto the lid of your ink pad and pick the ink up with your blender pen and colour away!!!!!!!

I have stamped circle circus set in just about every pink ink we sell, a well as black to break it up a bit. Then punched and cut them, and layered with dimensionals to make flower clusters.

The DSP is Raspberry Tart, Rose red double stitched Grosgrain ribbon, Clear rhinestone brads and alphabet stickers.

Thanks for looking.

Easter Punch Art

Who Loves Punch Art??????

I know I do. I just wanted to share this cute little chick I made as a hostess gift. My lovely hostess Jan (waving!!!) received a gift bag with these adorable little creature in it. They are a lovely accent for a Easter card or scrap layout.

Very easy to make.

1. Punch two scalloped circles from Yo Yo yellow card stock. One for the body and one trimmed down for the wings.

2. Punch a set of flowers from the Boho Blossoms punch from tangerine tango card stock. The small flower is his feet and the larger one the cone on his head.

3. Eyes are two 1/2 white circles, one 1/2 inch yellow circle cut in half (eyelids) and two 1/4 inch circles from black card stock (pupils).

4. The beak in a 1/2 inch square from tangerine tango card stock, scored and folded diagonally.

Hope you have fun making the cute little chickens. My two year old loves them!!!!

I am Back!!!!!!

Well after a long break from blogging I aM finally back. Sorry to disappear for a while.
Last year got very stressful and BUSY!!!!! so I just had to take a break and get on top of things.

I am back in full swing now, a little less stressed and not nearly as many commitments. So I am looking forward to catching up with you all.

I thought I would share some photos of what we have been doing.

The twins finished Kindergarten and we enjoyed our first BIG holidays together. It was soooo nice to relax and catching up. Lot of swimming, DVDs and XBOX time.
They are typical boys who love adventure, so we took the m tree top climbing at Minmi. For those of you in the area this is great outdoor activity for the young and the old.

I am soooo not adventurous but our boys LOVED it. You can find more info here .

Well the boys got these crazy straws for Christmas and off course I had to give it ago. It is nice to laugh at yourself.

Mmmmmmmmmm I think
glasses suit me!!!!!!
Posted by PicasaBack to school for the twins. They are in growing so fast. We have put them in separate classes this year to give them both a break from each other and to create some independence.

Glad to back
