Happy Ruby Anniversary to My Beautiful Dad and Mum!!!!

Happy Ruby or 4oth Wedding Anniversary to My beautiful Mum and Dad, bellow is the card I made for them .. The Stamp is Magnolia Edwin and Tilda getting Married.... but Instead of using My Beloved Copic Markers to colour the image I used Tim Holtz Distressed Inks and Using a Pain brush I coloured in the stamp .. I had a vision of a old world or vintage photo taken from a wedding... I was thrilled with how they turned out with the Inks..... I also added Pearl beading with Liquid Pearls, which I have not used before...... WOW I love it....... We have lots of Lovely Colours in at my favourite shop .. www.scrap2relax.com.au next time you are in have a look!!!!

Here is the card.... What do you think ?????

I had a lovely day today with my family .. I also had a little time up my sleeve to have a play in my favourite room ... hahah and I will be back in a few days to show you the latest creations... I hope you had a Lovely weekend !!! Take Care . Love Michellexxx

My Blessings; Being so Blessed to have my Dad and Mum with me!!

Getting back into the Swing

I am slowly getting back into the swing of my Papercraft... The Christmas and the School Holiday Period I always find I am lacking in Inspiration.... I dont know why that is ... Maybe that it is to busy, constant children around me or whether it is just places to go places to see... Which I really think is the reason... HOWEVER... I have managed alittle time at my favourite shop in the world .. www.scrap2relax.com.au on Friday with a lovely bunch of ladies and I made 2 cards.... I love brown , Pink and Red together... So I came up with this little cutey Pie....

And this little Boy card in Crisp Blues and Lime Greens....... New Colours for me as I havent worked in this colour scheme for a card!! I am happy with the result and I think I will repeat again......... Anyway I am hoping to have a day of card making today ... I have a little stash of cards available to purchase at Scrap 2 Relax in Drouin also MaVa Hairstyling Solutions also in Drouin .... So I need to add to my collection!!! Have a great day in the sunshine!!!! Til next time Michelle xxxxxxx

My Blessings: School Holidays , I truly love having my cherubs at home!!

And Yummy Home made Pizza for Lunches made by My Gorgeous Daughter xx

Happy Birthday Our Beautiful Georgia!!!

Look at this card... Regan made this for his Sister for her Birthday ... Isn't it gorgeous!!!! He did such a Amazing Job for someone who is only four... I made the base card then he did all the decorating!!! So Proud of my little man!!!!
This card is from Myself and Shane... It is a cute card that fitted the criteria of being Aqua and Purple ... So I used the Kaiser Eurotopia range .. I also finished off with a little Flower Soft in Silver to add detail to her shoes and dress!!!! Happy Birthday My Darling Princess!!!! We had a fantastic Day .. My Mum and I took Georgia to see Mary Poppins in Melbourne ... It was " Perfect in Every Way"...... Til next time ... Cheers Michelle

A Sweet start to 2011

I know we should be watching the waist lines from Christmas ...but.... I am feeling a little sad , well my family and I are just about to pass on My Nana and Grandpa Evan's home to the new owners ... We have been sorting through all the little things that have been kept in my Nana's home for ever ... it is really sad!!! :( Anyway I have been finding myself sharing stories with my Mum and Auntie and baking all the treats Nana use to make ... Mum even made Short bread for Christmas as Nana always had a batch for each of us at Christmas in our own Tins... Care fully labelled Please return to Nana for next year.... Another Treat she was wonderful at making was Sponge Cakes... So I had my first go today and I can almost feel Nana's Smile Shining on me!!! She would be so proud and I am very Proud to say they WORKED!!!! I know I haven't shared a Crafty Yummy with you in the last couple of Posts but somehow , there is more to me then just Paper Craft and I do hope you enjoy the Snippets of Me and My world and what makes me tick!!!!! I am just about to take charge of my Creative Brain and start Creating for 2011....... Till next time .. Take Care , Love Michellexxxxxxxx
