The Pink Elephant Challenge #34 This is the card I made for The Pink Elephant Challenge. I have not been in the challenge mood of late because I have had too much to do for school, family and other activities. Here are the products I have used for this challenge.

This camp was held at Wiseman's Ferry in the weekend that just past. Saturday night was purple night and Libby and Glenda went to so much trouble getting all these purple things. They won. Maree has a mask on and looks great. Melanie has her lovely smile and the 3 purple girls Libby, Glenda and I had a ball.The camp was a great success.

What an amazing morning. I woke up to a red haze outside and very little visibility. There was red dust everywhere.

I have been working on these for days and they have taken so long to do but that doesn't matter because my beautiful class deserves my time and effort. I have more photos and a special message inside. On the back are all the funny things we said and did and another poem of encouragement. I have made 21 of them.

Look at the lovely card Donna A sent me for the swap I am in. I love butterflies and this butterfly is not completely attached but has a 3 D appearance. I love the colours Donna has used. Thank you Donna for the lovely card you sent me.
This would have to be one of my favourite Sizzix Texture Plate designs. However, I am not all that happy with the card. Everything went wrong right from the beginning. I tried to emboss the centres of the flowers but the clear embossing pen turned blue and it looked yuck. Then I put Chrystallina Kindy Glitz on the flowers and it has turned out a bluey colour also. The glitter has also found its way onto the brads that I have added to camouflage the embossed centres. The embossing pen also made the leaves look weird. So here is my "everything went wrong card" with my favourite embossing plate.I have used a Fiskars border punch on the edge of the card.

This tin was made by Gail from Nowra for my daughter Melanie who lost her baby daughter recently. The girls from Scrap of Faith made tags to go in the tin. The tin sits on a table and when the need arises you take a tag out and read the Bible verse. It is so comforting and helpful during such hard times. How wonderful and thoughtful are these girls. Melanie was wrapped with the tin and the verses.

Look at how many birthday cakes I received this year. How spoiled was I??? The cake with the sparklers had relighting candles on them. LOL. it was funny. Then the group of friends gave me crazy shaped candles because i am crazy. LOL. 7D gave me 2 mudcakes and Yr 12 gave me a named cake and Mel made a carrot cake. I don't have photos of the muffin stack that yr 11 gave me at school.

Look at the beautiful flowers my precious yr 12s gave me for my birthday. I love the way this photo turned out. The reflection of the roses on the cellophane made the photo so effective. I love red roses.
