Make it Monday Challenge -Papertrey Ink

Hi again.

I told you I would be back again soon.  Two posts in one day, that must be a record for me.

I thought while I had my PTI supplies out, I would play along with the weekly challenge.  This week you had to include glittered embellishments.

Now anyone that knows me well, knows that the word glitter sends me into a tail spin.  I don't like to use it, and avoid it generally at all costs.

You see I am one of those people that manages to get it everywhere. In my hair, on my clothes, over my face. And it just sticks to me.  No matter how many times I wash myself, I will still have glitter on me weeks later. 

Sorry I digress.  I decided to pull on my big girl panties, pull out the JAC paper and glitter and make some embellishments.

Here is the final result.

I really love the little elephant and giraffe, even if they are covered in glitter.  You may be wondering if I managed to get over my glitter phobia...well the answer is no.  The glitter has returned to the shelf, where I am sure it will sit lonely and unused for another long period of time.  Don't feel sorry for the glitter, it has definitely left a mark on me, in my hair, on my clothes and all over my face.

Until next time

Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge

Hi everyone.

It has been a while since I posted I know.  But with a new year comes fresh attitudes and creativity.

I thought I would start off the year by participating in a blog hop challenge through Papertrey Ink.
PI products are my new addiction.  They make it so easy to create a beautiful card. I think you will see a lot of my cards using PI products in the future :) 

The challenge for this month is 'Pretty in Pink'.

Having two beautiful girls, this challenge was right up my alley, so I decided to make two cards.

Have you seen the beautiful ruffle cakes that are popping up all over the internet, that is where the inspiration for this card came from.  I attempted a ruffle cake for my daughters birthday last year, but not being a cake maker I won't shame myself by sharing those picture with you.

Here is the card instead.

Still having some scraps of pink paper on my desk I decided to put together another quick card.  You can't let any precious paper go to waste...right.

Well thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog today. I hope you enjoyed your visit.

I will be back soon with more creations.

School's out for summer!

Ahhhhh.  School is finished for the year.

The girls can relax and recharge their batteries.  We can all stay in our PJ's a bit longer and just enjoy the morning.

Peppy thought that the last day of school deserved a little treat.  So when the girls came home from school yesterday this is what they found.

A little ice cream parlour.  It was hot yesterday, so the ice cream went down a treat.  Especially with all the little extra goodies they could put on top of it.  

The girls kept walking up to Peppy and thanking him for the lovely treat :)

I thought the girls may have gotten a tummy ache after eating all that sugar, but they managed just fine.
Peppy on the other hand may have a tummy ache this morning, after he tried eating the dog biscuits last night.

This is what we woke up to this morning.

Those are our dog's Scooby Snacks.  
I don't think Peppy will have to worry about us giving them to Santa, but just to be sure he left a note.

Poor Peppy might need a glass of water to wash away the taste.

So Christmas is just around the corner, and I still have far too much to do. My blog posting may need to take a little break while I get organised and then enjoy Christmas time with my family. But don't worry, Peppy will still be getting up to all sorts of mischief, I just won't have a chance to blog.  There will be a massive Peppy update after the Christmas break, so stay tuned for that.

So from my family  to yours

Stay safe everyone

Skylanders Revenge!

Oh dear.

It was coming, I knew it was.  Peppy had been asking for trouble this whole month.  I think the bikie vest with 'Elves rule, skylanders drool'  may have been the straw that broke the camels back.

This is what we woke up to this morning.

Peppy was surrounded with the Ninjini twins at the helm.

What will he do, will he escape?

I am sure he will be fine.  In fact I heard rumours that he was planning something special for the girls to come home to this afternoon. Their last day of school, I think he wants to make it a bit more special.

Stay tuned.

Time for a rest.

Hi everyone.

Today I will do two posts for the price of one.  I didn't get a chance to blog about Peppy yesterday because my camera batteries ran out in the morning (too many Peppy  pictures).  I managed to take some photos last night but I was too tired to blog. Sorry.  So today I will do up two blog posts with a possible third tonight, so stay tuned for that one.

Peppy needed a lot of sleep yesterday as he caught up with another Goulburn Elf, Elfis Jingles. 

Poor Peppy, so tired.

Going by the photos it looks like these two boys had a lot of  fun. 

Funny little elves. The children were very excited to discover that the two elves had been out together.

So cute.  Thanks for playing along Elfis Jingle.
