Some Card Creations from the Retreat!

After seeing the beautiful cards that some to the girls made at last years retreat I made a decision that I would devote some retreat time to making some to! I'll be the first to admit that I'm a little like a fish out of water with but rather than sit there trying to think of some creative card goodness my dear friend Lisa and I searched 2Peas and found some cards to lift! I don't normally copy other peoples work as I find that hard to do but found it quite relaxing to make these. . . just don't ask me to copy someone elses scrapping page. . . nope I just can't do it!

Seeing as Barbi got some of the new CHA Cosmo ranges in I just had to play with them! They are simply divine!
And lastly, after being inspired by ChelleyBean Designs birdies I just had to make some of my own and some other little pieces of felty goodness! There's nothing quite like playing with some felt to get the creativiety flowing.
Well that's it for my cards but I can promise you I will be creating loads more very soon.
Thanks for stopping by in my neck of the woods!

My new View!!!

I'm so excited to be able to share with you what will be my new view! Well hopefully from May onwards!
Late last year Stephen and I decided that we needed a change for our family and came across this wonderful parcel of land which looks like its in the country but is in actual fact only 1 minute (litterally) out of Rocky. It's just over 1800 squares and is a slightly elivated block with just about no direct neighbours. Just what we wanted! Now we just have to wait for the rain to stop so the builder can lay the slab and get down to the job of putting the walls up. I promise to update as things progress.

A big HI-DEE-HOO!!!

Okay so yes I have been completely deglectful of my blog! I'll admit it! But after much kicking up the butt I am returning and WILL work harder in maintaining it.

So life's been hecitic. . . I've finished Masters, finished renovating, designed a new home for my lovely brood, bought a beautiful block of land, moved into 2 caravans at my parents and am awaiting the building of our they home. I CAN'T WAIT!!! So needless to say blogging and scrapping took a backseat. Until now that is!

And now that I have become a lady of leasure with Becca starting Prep this year I'm even more pumped about the time I have to create, learn and build on myself.

I'm also totally pumped to tell you that I have been invited to teach again at Daisy Chain Scrapbooks in Nambour. I just love the retreats there as the girls are all so lovely. My mojo has been energised from a crop I attended on the weekend and I had the chance to create my class layout for the retreat. So below is a sneak peek!

I used the Basic Grey "Sugar Rush" range, which I'll admit, I wasn't too sure of. But I have to say that now I have used it I love it! I'm hoping the girls at Daisy's will love it just as much as I do.

Well that's it for now. . . but I promise to be back very soon.
