Childer's Multicultural Festival

We were looking forward to the Multicultural festival this year :)  We woke up to perfect weather and decided to head off early to try and avoid the crowds - bahahaha When we got there the were thousands of people there already - oh well :)

Clay was not a happy camper with the huge crowds / loud music - he burst into tears and wanted out of his stroller and in daddy's arms were it was safe :(  He continued to cry as we walked around, but once we got away from the stalls / crowd and found somewhere to sit - he settled back down to his happy self.

We ate some lunch and listened to the live entertainment, then braved the crowds again for a bit more of a look around.

We stood for awhile listening to the bagpipes.

Happy in daddy's arms :)

Icecream makes everything better :)

Hopefully next year Clay isn't as scared of crowds and we can spend a bit longer there :)

Just popping in to share two cards I made at Simply Crafty.  Had some new stamps to play with and I was inspired by cards out of the CTMH catalogue.

Kaiser Kraft Exchange

I'm sharing my goodies that Cheryl sent me as my swap partner for the Kaiser Kraft Exchange :)  

How gorgeous is this card?!?!  

I'm jealous of the range of dies she is lucky to have :)  I"m looking forward to using them on layouts / cards!

Some cute handmade rosettes too :)

Kaiser Kraft Exchange

About a month ago Kaisercraft arranged a Kraft Exchange - where you signed up, were assigned a random partner (mine was Tehri from Finland), created anything you wanted eg cards, PL page, OTP, etc (as long as it used Kaiser products) and posted it off.  Then you would recieve a parcel from a different person.

I procrastinated too long over what to make - I just couldn't decide cause I knew nothing about the person I was posting too.  In the end I decided to make some cards - I reasoned even if they were a card maker, you can never have too many cards in your stash :)  I made 4 cards - 2x male and 2x female using either Kaiser papers, dies, PL cards, etc.

Once they were done and packaged up in my fave chevron paper bags I decided to also pop a small bag of Kaiser goodies too :)

I hope she likes them :)
