Well a lot actually. I have been very very busy but have managed to get some card making and scrapping done!
In the last week we have also celebrated Sam’s 9th Birthday and our 10th Wedding Anniversary! For Sam we had a low key gathering at my parents house – but it did have lollies and cake and presents – so that is the most important thing!
For us we went out to dinner in Manly last night and had some very yummy food.
I have been having a lovely time with my Stampin’ Up business and would love to welcome Lea Adcock to my team! Lea lives in Adelaide and is a wonderful scrapbooker/stamper and teacher. It is very exciting to have my first team member. I would love to add more talented stampers and scappers to my team – so if you are interested at all just drop me a line and I will tell you all about it.
So onto a few pics of my latest crafting.
I love these photos of Alex swimming in my parents pool. On this page I have also used the Big Deal Alpha by Stampin’ Up – I did this one while at retreat in Adelaide and borrowed it from my lovely friend Donna. I have now ordered it as part of my Stampin’ Start free stamp sets. So I can’t wait for it to arrive!
This page above is actually for my Aunt’s 50th Birthday – her daughter has asked all the guests to bring something for her – either a poem, card, scrapbooking page etc. So I took the challenge and this will be added to a scrapbook at her party. I love the photo and it was perfect for a significant birthday. I have used all Stampin’ Up! products including the ‘All about you’ stamp set.
The page above I also did at retreat in Adelaide. The photo is from Sam’s confirmation and I really loved it. Gotta love the BG and the HS letters – I went for a subtle look for such an important occassion.
Now for some cards. I have been having lots of fun but I can’t show you all of them as many of the cards I have made are for upcoming birthdays and I don’t want to show them yet.
So here is the card I made for Sam’s Birthday and also our Anniversary. Pete was very tricky with his – he actually stole one of my cards and wrote me a lovely poem – he defended his thieving by saying ‘he knew I would like it as I had made it’ LOL!!!
Stampin’ Up! is having a great promotion for August. All you need to do is spend $50 and you receive 25% off with the Watercolour Pencils or Watercolour Wonder Crayons. So let me know if you would like to order anything.
