Trevi Fountain

The Trevi Fountain was just beautiful  - and I am thrilled with the way this layout turned out. The colors in the reverse side of the paper really compliment the stonework.
Hope you like it :O)

Casino on the Norwegian Gem

We had so much fun in the casino. Just pushing quarters into the machine which slides backwards and forwards. We would all take a quarter and chant...1.....2.....3.....GO. and all pushed them in at the same time. The casino was empty when we started - by the time we finished there was a watching crowd of about 40 people. We won bottles of champagne, $20 bills but best of all we had so much fun and made so many memories :O)
Hope you like it :O)

Christmas 6x6 memory showcase albums

I made four of these before Christmas as presents for my family (now you know why I haven't been on here LOL).  For my sisters and my mum and one for me. Both of my sisters and their families came to visit over the holidays with 12 of us in one place it seemed like a great idea to get lots of photos taken. I then spent Saturday getting them printed and made more tags as there were more photos than spaces to put them and here your go - the finished item :O)
 This is a photo of my 2 sisters and I - Claire, me and then Rachel.
 Claire with her 2 girls - Lucy and Jenny
 Leo, Elliott and my nephew Andrew.
 Me, Leo, Elliott Robyn and Rich.

I love this 1st one of my kids - they are doing the 3 monkey thing. Speak no evil, see no evil, hear no evil.
Hope you like it :O)

January Stamp of the month - Find your style

So here are the cards I made with the new January stamp of the month - I love this set - it is so pretty - very much my style. I am sure you can imagine my reaction when I saw it :O) I used the new 'Wings' level 2 paper pack and the black mini medley.

On the 1st card I used vineyard berry ink on the same color cardstock circle and used the tailors form stamp to give a tone-on-tone pattern to the circle. The square card again used this same stamp - but I curled the bottom part of it around slightly - to give the 'swirl' in the corners. The blue butterfly card used the matching sparkles to add 'bling' to its body and again on the bird card I used a blue sparkle for its eye.
 This card below is the card I am teaching this month at my class - I have shown 3 of the different color combinations - both of paper and of ink colors. The paper is pleated along the top and the stitching is drawn on with either a sweet leaf green or black marker.
Well - I hope you like them and they inspire you to use your set :O)

Happy New Year

Good morning - wow I can't believe that it is over a month since I last posted. I have had both of my sisters and their families staying with me for the Christmas period so with 11 people in the house it has been a little crazy as you can imagine!
I also have some health issues which I am trying to take care of which is also slowing me down - so my apologies for not posting in the last few weeks.

Anyway - I have some artwork to post - so I am off to charge my camera battery and I will post on here later today - I have some gorgeous cards featuring the new Stamp of the Month so pop back a little later and come and see what I have :O)
