long lost friend

that's how my craft room felt when I ventured inside it this week. I've done two pages in the last couple of days.

This one is my husbands aunt and uncle and a belated Christmas gift. I framed it in a white Bazzill shadow box and it looked really pretty.
....and my flower fettish continues, so many gorgeous ones available - and isn't that punch gorgeous:)
I also want to say congrats to Debbie for her honourable mention in this years Masters. Awesome page Deb.

Love is in the air

Here's this months project for the Daisy & Dandelion blog.

This month it's Valentines Day and I've used a cute D & D paper pad.

My holidays have started today so hopefully I will be getting a little more productive in my craft room.

I'm also in a Bakers Dozen group with a bunch of Geelong ladies. We went out for coffee last week and I can't wait to get started.

Happy New Year!!!!

This is my new year project for the Daisy & Dandelion blog. Click on the link and have a look at the gorgeous stuff the rest of the DT have done this month. It's a bit late being posted but I've been without a computer on and off for a couple of weeks.

My poor PC died :(

We went shopping last week to get a new hard drive and came home with this baby - a 23"HP Touchsmart - its gorgeous but I'm having trouble getting my eyes to adjust to the size of the pages. My husbands eyes were ogling it as soon as we walked into the store.

We also updated my Photoshop version, according to the salesman, a case of loading the new one on and it will automatically pick up all my photos from the last one. WRONG!!!! After a few hours of panic that I'd lost all my photos that naturally I had failed to back up, my husband was able to find them on a file someplace hidden :) on my external drive.

I have heaps of craft to show. Mainly chrissy cards but I scanned them and the file is on my old PC so I quickly took some pics of the ones I hadn't sent off yet.

This is an advent calendar I made and gave to my mum. It's made with graphic 45 papers, a kaisercraft calendar and t!m holz crackle rock candy. I copied this :) from Cassie. The papers fit perfectly to the calendar.

Cassie - I can't seem to find anything on your blog - have you changed it? Can you leave me a link in the comments please so I can add it on here for everyone to see your gorgeous crafts.

This page is one of my hubbys and my wedding certificate. I was mucking around one day on the puter and made the background paper with lyrics.

A lot of the baggies and tags I made I had already gifted and forgotten to take photos. The little houses I made 5 of and love them, will def make more - i got the template from the Magnolia magazine.

I did most of my cards as gatefold cards this year, found it was quite simple and got through them pretty quick.

These pics were taken on chrissy eve and were quite rushed - the quality is not so good.
