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.
