The week has started off with a  beautiful sunny day but a little on the cool side.  Maybe I should get out of my shorts and put some socks on.  Even after exercising the chill from sweaty clothes doesn't help.  Ohhh well no rest for the wicked.
I've used a stencil to embossing my main background and then used Colorbox chalk, SU markers to colour in the flowers.  A velvet ribbon, some bling, glitter pens to highlight the flowers.  Taylored Expressions tall and skinny alphabets for the saying.  This card is going into the challenge on

Bike this way

Spent a lovey arvo at my parents helping them in the garden loosening up the soil for planting.  Carrying a buckets of rain water to all the plants and having them nearby so they don't have to do too much heavy lifting.  Got some new Memory Box Stencils after seeing all those wonder cards on Pinterest.  So here's my take on it.  Had some arrow washi tape which I paired up with a Memory Box bike.  Sizzix die was used to cut out a SU saying.  Memory Box stencil and Tim Holtz Distress Ink for the background.  Might just make the challenge on

Up n away

MOrning Everyone
It's been a crazy last couple of weeks working at the craft show, cooking and trying to keep up with exercise as well.  Days have been blurring into each other.  Working at the annual Scrapbook and Papercraft show was just full on.  Only sad part is now I don't get to spend a whole day wondering around the stalls browsing the stands and really taking all the lovely displays.  It's literally hr before opening time if that rushing around making sure you get a lookie at everything.  I did manage to get the things I wanted.
I've rediscoved my embossing folders and come up with new ideas to use my washi tapes as well.  This simple card will do at the challenge on

Brisbane Scrapbooking and Papercraft Expo 2014

Hi everyone,
Been working at the Brisbane Scrapbook and Papercraft Expo.  This was set up day!!!  One never knows the frantic hustle and bustle until your working the stands.  When you walking in and see all the lovely things beautiful presented!!!   NOW I KNOW...  But have to admit it's all worth the efforts.   It was lovely to see old customers come up and say hello and meet new people as well.  Now for the last day,  gonna be a crackin' time.  You should see the pack up the PACE is even more CRAZY...  8 hours to set up and we're trying to beat the old time of hour and half to pack up and ship to next show....  HAPPY DAYS.
