My sweet little boy

This photo of my sweet little son was taken by his family day care mum. She had it on the wall at her house all of last year as well as the small drawing in the pink frame. The perfect starting point for a quick and easy page. I wanted to remember some things he loves right now...favourite food, friends, what her wants to be when he is grown up.

Tutorial to Share

Hello to all my lovelies. Just a quick post today to let you all know about the tutorial I have put together for my sweet friends at Embellees. I still have the mixed media bug....but had lots of fun playing with Punches on this one.

You can find it here

Paper Punches & Photos

The Embellees team have be at it again and have come up with some fantastic layouts for our Paper Punches & Photos class. If you have been to their class you will know that they are all about teaching new techniques and reinventing the old. If you are anything like me you may have accumulated one or forty four punches over your time.....LOL yes I did count them. Oh I hope my hubby doesn't read this. I love punches and used them all the time in my cards and layouts, but one thing I love is using my tools in creative ways... you know when you stop and go WOW I would never have thought of that.

It wouldn't be an Embellees class without a little re know our Lizzie!!! She has been off to Bunning's once again.....any guesses????

Due to classes being continually booked out...the girls have increased the capacity to cope with the growing demand. So if you have been putting of booking in....great news, there are a few spots left. Always a great day out and fantastic value at $60 for four layout including the kit. Hope to seen you there.

More She Art

I have more she art girls to share today. It had been so much fun making them. I mush admit I have been know to disappear into my craft room for a few hours and come out with paint all over me feeling a little guilty....but loving every second.

I wasn't sure whether to put this one on my blog because I really think she looks a bit wrong, but I guess it's all part of the creative process. I have learnt so much and hope through good & bad will continue to keep on learning.

The quote says "She knew love makes the world go around".

This is a interpretation of myself. It is based on a photo of me as a bridesmaid at my sisters wedding, around 13 years ago. I have included photos of the kids & a love letter from DH in the background.

The quote says "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step"

This girl is a modern day interpretation of me......well maybe I am dreaming just a little....LOL!! Should I rephrase that.... this is how I would like to see's nice to dream.

Well that is the last girl I did for the Christy Tomlinson She art course. I really had the best time making these sweet girls. I just love how feminine they are and when you live with a house full of have to get your girly fixes when you can. I seriously love her work and and am inspire to keep playing with more mixed media.

She Art

Here they are, as promised. My sweet little girls...or ladies how ever you like to interpret them.

I recent did the Christy Tomlinson "She Art" course. I have to say, I am completely hooked on mixed media right now (and may have a little crush on Christy as well....LOL). She is amazing!!!!!!

This little lady was my first attempt and I have to say she is still possibly my favourite. I just love how dam cute and innocent she is in her little bloomers.

She was my second attempt. I didn't love her as much when I finished, but she is growing on me. My sister instantly identified with her.... isn't it funny how you can relate to them. Whether it be physically or by the verse, somehow there is a connection. The quote is a little blurry but it says "She left her FEARS behind".

I have some more girls to share with you so please come back......oh and leave a comment and let me know what you think??

Wonderlust Workshop

We had a great day together at the Embellees Wonderlust workshop. It was so nice to catch up with all of my great craft buddies after a long break over Christmas/new year.

The girls were so inspiring with their fantastic travel themed projects. Who ever thought you could use a UBD in so many ways. My favourite was definitely some of the yummiest stamps I have ever seen.......oh how I love rubber!!! (ooh that sound really bad....LOL).

I sadly have not traveled nearly as much as I would like to....once my littlies leave the nest you wont see hubby & I for dust. My LO was all about where we would like to go.

The embellees team & I recent had a creative weekend away at fingal bay. Besides lots of talking and eating, we have put together some amazing pages using punches. You are going to love this workshop....
