Lucky Last One..... opps

Sorry girls - missed one. Here is the sixth card from last night. I have left the bottom of the card blank so I can add a greeting when I am ready to use it. Will put it in the blue section cutting out with some nesties to give it a bit of style! Thanks so much for stopping by! xo S

Crop Night Cards

Sorry I have been so quiet of late. Sick family the past few weeks and we have also been very busy when well enough. Had a trip out to Chinchilla on Wednesday with the family. Lovely day for a drive in the country and got some cool not to mention cute snaps of the kids too at Dalby and Toowoomba on the way home! Other than this... not much happening in the way of mojo for Shirl!! I have several Discover DT lo's on the go but no mojo til last night to finish them off.

Well couldn't find anything to appease me at crop night so I decided to make some cards instead. I managed to get six cards made. Some with stamped images and some with the cuttlebug. I was more than happy with them so found a bit of my mojo seemed to have returned before the end of the night.

This is great news as I have my online crop with Scrappies on tonight so, so need that mojo! Well hope you enjoy and have a great weekend everyone. Happy scrapping!!

Mt Cootha

Instead of a lazy Sunday today we all headed out the door for Ken to do his V8 hotlaps at long last. Well so we thought. Apparently they gave us the wrong date! We were supposed to be at the track yesterday. Poor Ken he was so disappointed. He had even rung about 10 days ago to confirm the date etc as they didn't email us like they said they would! So instead of coming straight home we decided to head up to Mt Cootha to check out the views of Brisbane and have a picnic lunch. Here are a few snap shots of the day! Hope everyone has had a great weekend. Hugs xo S

Well here they are ladies.... the two single layouts I managed to get done at my crop night at Discover last Friday. Now both these are based on sketch challenges currently up on the site so if you feel like a challenge be sure to head on over and check them out. No time limits on doing the sketches but please upload to our thread so we can see your magical creations too. I am having a lazy Sunday doing some housework and having some play time too! What is everyone else up to? I hope you are all enjoying yourselves and getting lots of crafty time too! Catch you later.... hugs xo S

My Gorgeous Girl

Today whilst we were out shopping at the Westfield Chermside Shopping Centre Ken and the kids got stopped by a new stall (I was at the local Riot Arts & Crafts). By the time I caught up my DD had half her hair done up in the most gorgeous "Shirley Temple" curls. All she has ever wanted was curly hair like me or her big brother Jordie .... so Ken and I had a hard time saying no when she asked if we would buy her this new curling iron! So home we came with a new pink curling iron. Guess what I will no doubt be doing in the morning ..... putting in some new curls. I so wished I had my camera to capture the pure joy and excitement on her face. Here she is at home tonight. The curls were a lot more messy by then as she just couldn't stop touching and feeling them...... but seriously isn't she just a living doll? yes I am biased! lols

New Layouts....

Well is it certainly strange not coming in here with regular lo's and cards... I managed to get out last Friday night to my local for their crop night. It was so exciting seeing my DT lo's on the wall for everyone to see at Discover. Be sure if you are local to head on down to the store and check out all the wicked DT lo's on display! I have three new lo's to share as a result of Friday night. Sorry been slack finishing them off and photographing them! School holidays are flying by and before I know it they will all be back at school again! Bring on Tuesday! I can't wait and secretly I think the kids are looking forwards to going back to school and playing with their friends again too. Saturday is Douglas' 13th birthday. We are busy planning what to do for the day.... he is so indecisive! Lol. So more photo's to come! But for now.... here is the first of the three lo's - this one was taken in our backyard on June 27th when we were celebrating Jordie's 10th bday.....

As you can see the kids all had lots of fun getting very muddy riding the quad and bikes around the dam! The next one is of the birthday boy riding... he is only just big enough to ride the postie scooter - but ain't he proud he finally can!

And lucky last for today. This is my very beautiful and sweet neice Trish. I so love this photo of you Trish.. I know you don't but you look so very pretty in this pic. Hugs'n'love sweet neice!

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my work! Hugs Shirl

Card Making

Hi Everyone

Well it does indeed seem very strange not to be coming in here each Monday and Thursday to update my blog with my latest Beary Box cards or layouts. I have had a busy week but managed to get a couple of cards done for RAK's and thought I would share them with you. Tonight I am off to a crop night so hope to get a couple of lo's done and then tomorrow.... well we are making the long drive down the coast to Movieworld (theme park) on the Gold Coast for Douglas and Jordan's birthdays - lots of photo opportunities there! Wahoo can't wait. The kids are all getting very excited too! Ok best be off and get organised. I have to take Douglas to get a booster shot today for an earlier injection. Have a great weekend my friends. Hugs xo Shirl
