Leaves the fun up to us.

Over at Love To Crop there is a challenge for fall.  Here is my entry.

We were having a BBQ and all these leaves were on the deck.  So they had to sweep the deck. The only time I could get them to do that. lol  The kids got it all in a huge pile and ready set go......  they all jumped.  They played in it for ages, jumping - scooping up the leaves - jumping again.

Better then any party games.

Party time

Today we had the party but with me being really busy, we only had a couple of friends over  It was going to be at the park but it rained and rained.  So a change of plan was needed.  Since it was at a park I didn't organise any games figureing the kids can just play so when it rained I had nothing planned to entertain the kids coming to the party.  So I grap 5 door hangers out of my supply and covered them.

So these were put on the table with heaps of stuff and told to go for it.  They had a blast.  These are the results.  A bunch of very talented up and coming scrappers.

Happy Birthday Tamika

I cant believe my baby is turning 9.  Where did that time go?  So since me circut had a little warm up with the card.  I thought I might make a few thing for the little gathering we are having tomorrow.  Boy did the cricut has a workout today. 

We made lolly bags for tomorrow.  Using the cartridge Tags, Bags, Boxes and more.  We also used Everyday paper dolls to design a picture of  her friends on the lolly bags.  (hope that makes sense lol).   I have enter this in the challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2.  You just have to use the Tags, Bags, Boxes and more or similar to make a 3d container.

Another project involved the use of some vinyl (I love that stuff).  This was to decorate a ripstick for my girl.  Now she can tell the difference when she learns now to ride it and hits the skate park.

Just something simple,  red is a pretty hard colour to match without it looking to Christmasy.  lol.  The birthday card doesn't match any of the presents but match my daughter.  Lots of bright colours and butterflies,  very spring.  Her favourite time of the year. Probably because its her birthday month.  :)

Maybe, just maybe my scrappy mojo has returned.  Everyone keeps there fingers crossed for me.

It's been awhile.

Well today I did it.....  I opened my big mouth about making a card for a workmate who is leaving.  And it has to be done by tonight.  Argh.  Nothing like leaving it to the last minute.  So for some inspiration I check into the scrapping world, one that I have not be into for a long time.  So I found a sketch and unleased my poor cricut machine.  ( my poor baby has been sitting in the corner just waiting ever so patiently). 

The sketch is from Lets Capture These Sketches. Here is the sketch.

And here is the card I made.  Colour not that good on the photo for some reason.  Must be out of practice.  lol

The card is done and I really enjoyed myself doing this, who knows maybe I might be able to squeeze in some scrapbooking in the close future.
