Keesh's Inspiration Challenge #15

Hi, quick post with my card for Keesh's challenge this week. Aren't those cushions great...reminds me of high rises in the city at night time. My card uses quite glittery paper although the photo doesn't show it up. I've used the glitter window technique on this very simple card. Thanks for looking.

Keesha's Colour Challenge #15 and Truely Scrumptious Challenge #19

Here is my card for Keesha's lastest colour Challenge. I love these earthy colours especially chocolate chip, my favourite. I have followed the latest sketch for Truely Scrumptious which has the added challenge to use 3 flowers, 3 brads and 3 gems/pearls. Well I have followed this as long as you can use more than 3 flowers as my image has several stampings done repeatedly. I'm using this card as an anniversary card for my parents. You may need to double click the photo to see the card better until I can recharge my camera batteries and hopefully get a better shot for you. Thanks for looking.

La La Weekly Challenge #11 - PINK

This is my first time at playing along with La La Land Crafts Weekly Challenge. This week you needed to use PINK on your card. I have gone with a colour scheme of black, grey, pink and white for a little girls birthday card. Sorry the photo isn't very good. I can't master taking photos at night time. Thanks for looking.

Birthday Present for Mel

Hi there, it was my mate Mel's birthday last week and I was running a bit late getting her gift organised but we got there eventually. I knew what I wanted to do, it was just getting around to making it. I have lots of people to credit so I hope I don't forget anyone. The first photo shows everything in the box but as things are a bit hard to see, I've also added a photo with the contents out of the box. My original inspiration came after seeing Nerine's blog with a box of goodies she put together. I completely loved her card so have copied it exactly, just different colours. Nerine uses the Fifth Avenue Floral set so well.

I also made a Tea Bag Holder from Splitcoast Stampers using the sleeveless holder variation at the bottom of the tutorial. Mel loves a cup of tea so I hope she likes the flavours I have in there. I also made this groovy Paper Witch Shoe chocolate box which comes from a blog called Skip to my Lou. The bottom photo shows the shoe a bit closer up without the chocolates. The other bits and pieces are Olive and Lemongrass bath salts, bath wash and soap with some exfoliaters. That's about it. I hope she likes it.

Family Photos

Logan's kindy arranged to have family photos taken as a fundraiser. They only took 3 different photos but I'm happy with how they turned out and thought I'd share them on my blog (I hope I'm allowed to do that but we weren't told we weren't, lol) So here we are.....

Weekend at Elliott Heads

We have just returned from having 3 nights away at beautiful Elliott Heads with our friends. We had a lovely relaxing time and I always look forward to our next time back there. They have these cute little cabins only metres from the beach. We hired all 4 of them for the weekend. The kids had a ball playing on the beach.
Here is a group shot of all of us...The Riley, Bosel, Dudley and Board families.

The Ginger Factory

Well we have been too busy lately, so I don't have any cards to share at this stage but thought I'd add a couple of photos from our recent visit to The Ginger Factory. We only intended on stopping for an ice cream and a quick look but 3 hours later we finally left. We had a ride on the train called Moreton and went on a boat ride called Overboard looking for the gingerbread man throughout the world, which was really well done. The kids had fun and Ky didn't want to get off the boat.
