Alice Springs Trip

The DDP.. aka Darling Partner Person.. and I headed away for a fabulous 2 week trip to Alice Springs in August, we had people to see every step of the way. And that holiday inspired this LO for the Inspired by Nature Challenge over at Kraft Plus.

I have not added a photo and I am really happy with the results. The creamy paint reflects the dust and dirt in the mine at Coober Pedy and I have included the few pieces of  potch that we mined.
So no.. we didn't come out rich...not with opal anyway.

Thank you for stopping by.

They are lions!!

Pretty stoked with this one, tried something a bit different for me.. 
I could see this one in my mind's eye and I am really happy with the result. 
Many thanks to Pam for supplying the material xx.

This was for the AMAZING Kraft + Challenge blog.
And this is it.

June Challenge: In the Jungle.  kraft

Very challenging... I had the perfect picture and the story goes like this...
Whilst at the Melbourne Zoo with my brother and his young family.. my Mr then 15  states loudly and proudly that the lions were in with giraffes... Oh man... 

So here is my take, thank you everyone for stopping by.


Have a great day!!

My Pizza Box.....

When I saw this challenge from the team at Kraft+ I was beginning to think I wasn't going to get this one done either... missed last month... bugga.. anyway..  Then my bestie came around .. gave me a few ideas for a card that I wanted to make.. no card made.. But I did make this... A Pizza Box.  And I am stoked.

 So from these beginnings ...

I have taken my inspiration from the string... my heart.. the painted wall... I have spray painted over the background to soften the washi..  the books..I have found one of my favourite books at the op shop and instead of making flowers like I told the Sharon I would.. I have have simply added a picture of one of my childhood best buddies to the page.

Thank you for visiting .. have an awesome day xo

Just scraping in to get this loaded before cut off... I completed this LO at the amazing E2C Retreat, that was held just last weekend.. would really love to be there still...
This is my gorgeous youngest nephew Taylor D, he is patting a koala at the local tourist park, and he looks pretty chuffed with himself.

This is going to Kraft Plus for their challenge of "All that Glitters".
Loving this site, awesome challenges.

Thank you for stopping by.
Have a great day!

Pure Joy.

One for the new Blog that has landed well and truly  on it's feet, I could be just a tad biased with my bestie Sandra having the light bulb moment and being fully supported by Amanda-the design queen.
I am OMG loving the talent that has found its way to the K+ blog is amazing, and I am thrilled for them.

Here is their challenge, fabulous colours!

Here is my take on "mango breeze".

Here is my gorgeous young nephew Taylor D. 
We had been down to the local Fauna Park, and his face was awash with such joy.
Thank you for popping in....
