I took the twins to meet them before their surgery. They are just so sweet. Incredibly grateful for what is happening. I feel very proud to have been involved and helping in my small way.
Keep you thoughts and prayer coming as they aren't out of the wood works yet!!!
Here are some photos from my New 2010/2011 Catalogue Launch.
We had a great time.....lots of laughing and some crafting as well.A display of the some of the New products.
Huge thanks to Jeana who helped me set up and the lovely ladies who came along.
I am selling the catalogue for $10 so email me to arrange a copy.

In the kit was a piece of 12x12 Kraft the cream & blue ledge PP, as small strip of red PP, the embellished shipping tag and black & white spot fabric. This is my interpretation. You may recognise the flowers from the brown bag back in this post here.
Just a quick up date to let you know what is happening with the West Timor girls Surgery. They are booked into John Hunter Hospital for surgery this Sunday 18th.
We recently had a Meeting with Bob Richards from ROMAC (Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children) who was delighted to receive our check for $2985.53
Mr Richards was overwhelmed at your generosity. All this will fund their visit and any additional cost will be taken care of by ROMAC.
ROMAC have taken over organising the process because that is what they do best. Each of the girls are coming over with a family member and Lenny who is a Dentist in their village who will be their as a support and interpreter.
They are staying at the Ronald McDonald House on campus at John Hunter Hospital. It is going to be extremely overwhelming for the girls as they face all kind of obstacles, like the language barrier, western culture and trusting us with their care. Even the simple things like using a toilet for the first time.
John Hunter Hospital have been amazing in their generosity. They are giving up a theatre for the day (we all know how precious this is) covering all care, imaging and hospital expenses. Dr Kelvin Kong and Dr Rob Eisenburg will be making up the ENT (ear nose & throat) team, giving up a Sunday off for 10 hours of operating time. Dr Gary Hoffman will be head of the Facio-Maxillary team. Once again donating all of his time and experiese.
Please have them in your thoughts and prayers as they undertake this massive journey, which we are sure will change their lives.
This never would of been possible with out the help of all of you who came along to the fundraiser. I appreciate all that you have done.
Keep visiting for more info.

Today I am going to share a fabulous workshop I went to recently. I had the best day and came home so inspired. I was invited to the Embellees "Field of flowers" workshop by the lovely Liz & Lisa. This is what was waiting for us on each table when we arrived. We were all given a beautiful hand made name tag as well. If you have been to one of my workshops of late you will have seen me wearing it......LOve it!!!
The girls go to so much trouble to make the day "special" and that is exactly how it felt leaving. It was kinda like a day spa for scrapbookers!!!!
A huge thank you to Liz & Lisa from Embellees for inviting me along. I had such a great day. The girls are beautiful and make you feel so welcome & special.
I couldn't stop here I have booked into the next two classes. If you live in Newcastle/Hunter Valley area Come & join me.
Fun with Fabric

Have you caught the Bug (the cuttle bug)
I am so in loooove with my Bigshot which in my opinion is superior to the cuttle bug, but everything the girls will show us will apply the it. I can't wait for this one!!!!

I wanted to share this card with you because I just love it's simplicity.
I have stamped the flourish from Vintage Vogue in real read ink. Then punched a strip of real red cardstock with the Scalloped Edge Punch. It needs to be nice and thin!!!!! Put some double sided tape on and roll. This makes the beautiful rosette's. Isn't it sweet. I have made one in rich razzleberry on vanilla card, which I love as well. I will post it so you can compair.
The page mostly uses up scrap bits of paper from the good morning sunshine range. I wanted to challenge myself to use some rub-ons, so out come the Bright Delights rub-on pack (retired).
The journaling reads "Some little bits of wisdom"
Laugh every day.
Stand up for want you believe in.
Treat people as you want to be treated yourself.
The numbers are rubbed onto a Build a Brad (109128) and the journaling in written onto a punched piece of DSP using the Round Tab Punch (119864).
Thanks for visiting,
