Mothers Day Page

So this is the page that featured over at The Stamp Spot this week. This photo was taken on Mothers Day this year down on the foreshore in Newcastle. We had such a lovely day.

I just love, love, love these Prima flowers and Pearl Swirls. And of course I love, love, love Tim Holtz embellishments.

And a card to share also. Sadly, I needed a sympathy card for a dear friend who lost a family member a couple of weeks ago. I wanted her to know that we were thinking of her and her loved ones.
Thanks for stopping by, I will be back again soon with more to share. But today I will also leave you with a sneak peek of my Glimmermist Class coming up at Pages 2 Scrap, on 11th June @ 7.00pm (edited to add: this class is full so will be repeated on Tuesday 29th June @ 10.30am)

Celebrate 5

I was just going back through my blog and realised that I hadn't shared my birthday page of Nathan. He turned 5 in March and was super excited to finally get there. :)
I used the Cricut to cut out the title.
And inked and embossed a chipboard number for embellishment.
Thanks for stopping by,

Mothers Day Goodies

Last weekend I spent Mothers Day with both my Mum and Mother-In-Law. We had a lovely day up in Newcastle on the Foreshore. Of course I was madly crafting the night before to create something special for each of them. Here is the result.

This one was for my Mother-In-Law.
For both of them I focused on them being the Grandest of Mothers.
These larger photos of the kids are just gorgeous, taken by my very talented friend Liz Walker.
And this second album was the one we made with Heidi Swapp the other week, with her House of 3 goodies. It was so adorable and really suited Mum.
I love to to give handmade gifts (even if I am pushed to create them at the last minute). It warms my heart when my Mum thanks me with tears and a hug.

Thanks for sticking by through all those photos. Will update with SIA photos this week, so make sure you pop back again, bye.

Mystify Me

The last couple of weeks have been flat out. I went away again last week for work to Mystified with Heidi Swapp and Wendy Senger (the wonderfully talented creator of Glimmermist). It was fantastic!

I started the day with a photo. (These two were so much fun to meet - friendly, full of info and happy to answer any questions)
And we got three FANTASTIC kits, full of new fun products.
And then we created a HUGE mess. (see the chocolate included, can't create without chocolate!)
Heidi was such a great tutor. Fantastically talented and so humble. And Bec being busy.
This is how our hands ended up.
And all day we kept going on about Max Brenners. So after dinner, that is where we ended up.
And who should run across the very busy main street of Newton to say Hi at about 9.30pm???? Heidi, Wendy and crew. They are so cute.

Back with details about SIA in the next couple of days (phew, so much to catch up on)
Thanks for stopping by,
