How did it get there????? I was working on my computer on Friday night and one little 3 year old comes running down to me to tell me a crocodile is on my speaker. Yeah right how much sugar has this kid had. LOL. I forgot he had a toy crocodile that Buddy bought him in an egg that hatched this green croc after his fall incident on Monday. Cooper had been throwing this croc in the air and yes it landed on my speaker way up high. I am just glad it didn't hit the TV.I did laugh and luckily the camera was close by.
Look what I found? The spiky thing to put flowers in a vase. I saw some ladies on other blogs using this to display their cards. I thought, I have one of those somewhere. it was my Mother's. It is well over 55 years old. I can remember it since i was a little girl. Can somebody tell me what it is called?

27 years is a long time. The photo of Brian and I at our wedding reception is on the wall in my bedroom so I can look at it of a morning when I wake up. LOL. The wine goblets were a wedding present from my year 12 class of 1982. The photo of me sitting has a photo of me behind as a young girl. The photo of Brian and I was taken at Belmont near the lake.

Look at the lovely award that my good friend Libby has given me. Check out her blog and see all the wonderful creations she comes up with. I value her friendship and appreciate everything she does for me.
The rules for this award are that I must list five things I love to do and then pass it along to five other people.
So firstly, 5 things I love to do:
1. Spend time with my family and friends
2. Relax and have Friday night special dinners with my husband.
3. Make paper craft projects -altered, cards, scrapbooking, mini albums etc
5. Embroidery and patchwork
Like Libby it is so hard to nominate people for these blogs as there are so many out there that deserve it. Here is my list:

Last week I was not feeling well and had a sick day and spent the day in bed. However, it helped a little. I went to school on Monday and was called away just after recess by Cooper's pre-school because he had jumped from an object and collected the book shelf on the way down. hence he had a cut on his head that was long, wide and deep.
Spring is in the air!! Even though it is still winter here in Australia. These beautiful blossoms were out at the school where I do a crop once a month. I picked a bunch and they are in my home but the smell is pungent.

I made 2 cards with the same template and almost the same products. Instead of the flowers i have added this self adhesive butterfly from SALT. Notice I have the card turned a different direction with the butterfly card.
I love playing with different shapes and will have to keep an eye out for some more to enlarge etc.
These shapes are also good for journalling blocks on scrapbooking pages.
I would like to publically thank Libby for doing an upgrade on my blog. I was having problems trying to find out how to make it a 3 column and she did it for me and spent well over 4 hours saving all my bits and then reinstalling it all. I really appreciate what she she has done.

Hello all, my apologies for any inconvenience. However, my blog is undergoing a make over and you may have difficulty viewing it or accessing some of the posts and side bar widgets. Hopefully things will be back to normal before you know it.

I have had a great but busy week this week. The weekend was fantastic. Brian and I had a lovely dinner with Glenda and Bruce and stayed the night. They have a new house and it is lovely.

You might find this hard to believe but this is the first time I have embossed with embossing powders on a Cuttlebug embossed card. Yes I have used many other mediums and techniques but never this one so thought it time to play.
