Academy Awards night

This is my youngest son. He is rather pleased with himself or should I say with his new purchase...a hat! His school year level have just finished a unit of work on film making. Each group had to come up with an idea for a script, construct it, make props, design costumes and film and edit the video. After the holidays, we are all attending an 'Academy Awards' night to watch the finished products. The children (and adults) have to dress up for the red carpet arrivals and I believe awards are being presented on the night. They even had to write an acceptance speech as part of their homework! Anyway, I will no doubt post some photos of the night so keep your eye on this space!

A card for Anne

My good friend Anne has recently suffered an unexpected health scare. I thought it would be nice to send her a lovely card with some gorgeous flowers to help her recover and let her know that we were thinking of the mental side to recovery is just as important as the physical side. I made this at my lovely friend Debbie's last Monday when we got together for a Stamp Club with Deb and Carolann . It was nice to bounce ideas off each other and to discover new techniques from Debbie. The card is made with Baja Breeze CS and the tree is from Thoughts and Prayers stampin' Up! stamps.

Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #34 "Oceans 11"

It has been far too long since my last post. What can I say? Other things have occupied my time...some fun, others not. But I still head over to see the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge that Sankari and Brooke put up each week. For those in Australia, the sneak peeks come online Late Friday sometimes I stay up! Ok I usually stay up because I can't resist a challenge to guess a film from teeny tiny slivers of images that the girls let us see :)

This week Brad Pitt's eye in the last peek was unmistakeable. Using brads in the challenge is a must but unfortunately I could only squeeze one in!! It is on one of the roulette wheels. I took my inspiration from the DVD cover which has a great background full over bright circles.

I'm quite pleased with the way it's turned out and thought I could use it as a gift card with a lottery ticket in.

Easter Fun

We have just begun term 1 holidays and before we finished last Friday, the Easter Bunny hopped on by (our class window) to say hello!! The children were absolutely in awe and soooo excited...if you could have seen their faces it was priceless. He also left some eggs outside, so the children had fun collecting them and of course consuming some!!
Hope you like the photo!!
