There HERE!!!!!!

Hi everyone. Just a quick note to let you all know that the girls surgery went well last Sunday and they are both making good recovery at John Hunter Hospital. It went longer that planned 12 hour each. Now their new life begins!!!!!! If you are local, you have probably seen them on the News. John Hunter Hospital have covered the story very well.

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!!!

Embellees free kit Layout

After a Embellees class the girls set a challenge to use the packaging!!!! I have to admit I love this aspect of scrapbooking. I get so excited incorporating everyday items into a layout. I know it's not every ones bag , but definantly appeals to me. It must be the Greeny in me...LOL

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.

Back in August I went along to another fundraiser Crop DAY. You can find out about this one here. Liz & Lisa from Embellees gave us all a little gift. It was a kit they put together as a taste of what to expect at one of their workshops. After looking at it for two weeks I finally made a page. I am very happy with how it has turned out. Their wasn't a scrap that I didn't use. They packaged the kit in a cello bag and stapled with a doilie & their Embellees label. The Dollieis now the white flower with the soft red ink, the lable (which is the same size as the scalloped circle punch) I used the back of and attached it to the top of the shipping tag with the bird cage.

Thanks ladies for the kit. I had fun playing with it.

Fundraiser Update


Hi Ladies,

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.

Take Care

Cassie xoxo

I have been Embellished!!!!

Hi Ladies,

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!!!!

This is the extra beautiful instruction booklet.

Here is what we made. I beautiful canvas that came with a stand and twelve hand made flowers. The book that is mounted to the canvas with ring is a technique book. Inside the hand made album is a photo of each flower and the instructions on how to made it. I am so happy with how it has turned out.

This was my contribution to the class. We made the white lily and a page for the technique album.

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.

Another use for the Scalloped edge Punch

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.

Some little bits of Wisdom

It has been long over due since I have shared some of my creations, so today I have a 12x12 scrapbooking page. Sorry about the terrible photo. It was a bit dark and overcast outside.

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,

Cassie xoxo
