200 posts!

Golly golly gosh. I've officially made 200 posts on this blog. I never realised I had that much to say!!

It was a lovely spring weekend. Cleaning on Saturday (much easier in a new house, even if it is bigger), shopping, baking and crafting. The boys played outside and enjoyed the sunny spring weather too!

Sunday, the weather was sunny but windy. But that's okay! I was inside doing the Fresh Cuts Tote & Notes workshops. I will show you our lovely results later this week, when I have a chance to take a pic in the daylight!!

So instead, I'm going to show a couple of my projects over the last week. This scrap layout is one I enjoyed with Trudy on our Monthly Craft Night. I think it's called the Interactive Seahorse Scrap Layout. And it is rather interactive, the sea horse moves. He's been carefully positioned on acetate and a brad to help him move up and down!!

This second page, allows for more photos and journalling. Unfortunately I didn't have any photos with a beach theme. I better go to the shop and get some printed!! I have really cute ones of Luke at Fiji. No beach here in Canberra.

If you're wondering what I used, well .....

Stamps - Seahorse, shells, waves, all from Kaszazz
Inks: Marigold Morning (retired) & Brocade Blue, and reinkers, all from Stampin' Up
Papers: SU Whisper White CS, Bazill CS (blue, yellow and tan)
Other: Dazzling Diamonds, mini-misters, adhesive, chalks

The seahorse was stamped on Whisper White CS with gold, and then coloured in with chalks. The background of the paper was misted/sprayed with a combination of water and a few drops of Marigold Morning or Brocade Blue re-inkers. We also misted with a combination of water and Dazzling Diamonds.

Maybe it's the spring air, but I've been doing more unpacking of boxes and I found this absolutely gorgeously cute birthday card for Matthew.

Don't you love it? It was made by his Nana Cheryl. His little sign moves too. I should start thinking of a card for his second birthday!!

Anyway, I'm off to Sydney for a couple of days (work-related). See you when I get back!!
