10th Wedding Anniversary

Craig & I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary yesterday. These beautiful flowers & a helium balloon were delivered to work.

We celebrated with a romantic dinner at Kacy's last night. I wanted to renew our vows with an Elvis impersonator (yes, I am being completely serious and yes, I know I'm crazy! LOL), but I couldn't talk Craig into it. Who knows...maybe I could do it for our 15th wedding anniversary LOL

Some seriously happy mail...

I was feeling very loved this week...Monday I received a packet of photos from Katie, Tuesday the postman delivered a beautiful wooden serving set (salad bowl, salad servers, tray & coasters) from Becca, Wednesday my White with One blue swap arrived, and Thursday Lorelle dropped off the Stampin' Up stuff!

Yesterday I went to Kym's baby shower - there were about 7 pregnant women there - must be something in the water! LOL Cathie & Mitchell were there so after he woke up I got to have lots of cuddles :o) Then Craig & I went to dinner at Mum's, after that I headed over to Donna's for a couple of drinks and a movie. Craig & his mum went fishing today - unfortunately no fish for dinner though:o( Some friends were up from Brisbane and popped over to visit us - it was great to catch up with them!

I did manage to do a bit of scrapping - I have started on a couple of challenge LO and completed this slider card.

Don't forget to leave a comment in the Blog Candy post - to be in the running to win some of my crochet flowers.

Over 3000 visitors!

WOW - I can't believe I have had sooo many visitors!

This is a LO I scrapped a few months ago for Creative Artz that I thought I would share. I was inspired by a sketch from a class that Cassie was teaching.

I set up a table in the lounge room and spent last weekend scrapping. I have one LO to finish and have been working on 2 OTP. I did manage to finish these 2 cards. I am loving my new Kelly Panacci owl stamps - how cute are they?!?!

Two new flower colours - green & stone.

Don't forget to leave a comment on the previous post if you would like to win some of these flowers.

Stampin' Up!

Yesterday I had a Stampin' Up workshop - where Lorelle taught us how to make these amazing gift card holder / cards!!

Thank you to all the ladies that joined me for a fun filled afternoon! :o)

Cathie joined us for the workshop, so I finally got to have cuddles with Mitchell! He is sooo cute & cuddly and can sleep through a room full of loud women! LOL My mum though he was gorgeous and got her fair share of cuddles in too! Katie, James & Cohan were down for the weekend - so they spent the Saturday afternoon with us as well. Cohan was running around being a "busy bee" as usual - he is such a funny little boy. That night we had a friend over for dinner, Craig cooked a delicious meal and we sat around chatting & catching up.

Where did all this creativeness come from?

I don't know what's going on lately, but I have been feeling very crafty!! I've scrapped a few LO, made 2 cards, I'm halfway through crocheting my 3rd blanket (another Christmas present) and last night I made this crochet flower...

Go here to watch the U-Tube tutorial that I found. It is the best instructions I have found. I love these flowers -I brought some Bazzill crochet flowers that look exactly like this (I used them on my Mr & Mrs LO a couple of posts ago). I couldn't work out how to get the 2 rows of petals - so was super excited when I found the pattern for the exact flower I wanted. I have found some other great ideas for these flowers - so I will be crocheting up a storm.

I received these cute chippies in the mail yesterday from Tammy at Pumpkin Pink. I was lucky enough to win these as blog candy when she was promoting her new range of chippies.

Something a little different

I found 2 different examples of this decoration (?) - one was Stampin' Up and the other was Kaiser. I loved the Stampin' Up birds and thought they would be an excellent way of using my left over scraps of Cosmo Cricket paper I got from Creative Artz. I made this funky decoration at the midnight happy scraps last Friday night - if you pop into the shop you can have a closer look. Thanks for taking the pics for me Donna :o)

Last night Craig & I went to see Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. It was fantastic - I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan and loved the whole movie! Craig has never seen any of the movies or read the books - so he was a good sport for taking me :o) I want to read the seventh book again - might find some quiet time on the weekend to start it.
