Dec daily day 2

This is the start of day 2 I ran out of photo paper so I need to do the back page tomorrow.
I dont do simple but I love how this turned out.
The photo's show Bella unwrapping her advent day book surrounded by her big bro's.
I love that they saw her getting frustrated with the wrapping so they would help her...
Christmas is all about love and these three adore each other well most days lol.
Thanks for taking the time to look.

Studio calico Dec Daily album cover 2013

Hey guys,

This year I decided to jump on the bandwagon and buy the Studio Calico Dec Daily kit, I just received it last week after some postage issues, Australia post likes to hold things ransom on this end lol...
Okay my cover was a kraft coloured album with a red spine and it had stars on it, but I wanted to pretty much wipe that out and have fun playing with paint, mist and embossing powder to change it's look I so don't want to be like everyone else that's just not me...
I've decided to add to my kit as some of the things are not really my style but I will use them up just so need to add a bit more to make it mine, so in goes some Heidi Swapp papers and embellishments, and then I will add some cute little filler pages to fill it out more..
So this is my album cover, on the inside I have a memory file that is detachable which holds our December bucket list for our family, pictures to follow on my next blog post as I forgot to take photos of the inside cover...

Just 6 more days until my Heidi Swapp make pretty stuff down under class damn I am so excited I get to meet two gorgeous talented ladies but I also get to make some pretty stuff, so I will show and tell what I made next week...
I'd love to see your albums so leave me a link in my comment so I can check out your's...
But for now it's ciao for now....

What's on your workdesk 224

Hey everyone,

Gosh I have been so busy I haven't had time to do any type of blog post but I have been creating in that time, and doing an amazing workshop with Donna Downey a fortnight ago...
So what's on my work desk I have been working on my craft desk in the family room the last couple of weeks this is what my desk looks like this morning.
I wanted to create an album from scratch for my son Max's birthday which was yesterday to keep his birthday photo's and movie world memorabilia in it, loved how it turned out, still need to work on adding the photos to inside but will show those next week.
Monday we took the kids to Movie world to celebrate Max's 8th birthday we got our vip passes so we can finally go anytime now and only have to pay for food, gas and store purchases.
Of course the day we planned to go it rained like mad but nope it didn't stop us from having a fab day out, little Bella loved the tweety bird cage ride, I took Max on the rollercoaster forgot I was scared of heights until we were on the ride lol...
For a surprise for Max he got to get his photo taken with the stunt driver's this just made his day, the smile on his face as he got in the car was priceless.....

Well just a short post as I need to get ready to do the weekly shopping trip, oh what fun lol actually I quite like it....
