Some Christmas pressies that I lurve

I loved all my presents they were all so thoughtful but these where unexpected and I totally wanted them!

Frosty Pictures

Well I always wanted a white Christmas and didn't live up to the expectation! It was slippy, cold and people unable to travel and it wasn't enough to build a snowman, what fun is that :( Still haven't a chance to give my new camera a try so maybe over the next few days

Christmas Party

Well I think it's a sign of a true scrapper scrapping the pictures that gave you the hangover that made your hands shake so much you had to pretend you meant to stick the picture on upside down.... good night, good night!

Slide show


Is what Diablo was totally thinking while he was munching on it! (AHHHH I've turned into one of those sad dog ladies and that's all I talk about.....)
Suppose I better do one of him to keep him happy! It's from his birthday and the coin are caught mid air as I threw them at him! Used once upon a time stack from DCVW, man I love that paper and find it very hard to use!

Paper roses

Whoever came up with this idea is a GENIUS! Unfortunately, that would not be me. I found a tutorial for these awesome roses over at;

and the lady who demonstrated was Debbie Buckland;

So I take NO credit at all for this! I just love them and wanted to share!

You need 18 hearts
6 x 2 1/4"
5 x 2"
4 x 1 3/4"
3 x 1 1/2"

I inked all the edges with two different shades of darker red. You can also use acrylic paint or chalk. Punch a tiny hole at the bottom of every heart.

Take a brad (in the same color) and turn it upside down and start putting all the hearts through it.Start with the smallest hearts and work your way up.

Now the magic starts: take petal by petal and scrunch them up and around towards the middle. Don't be gentle here; the more manhandling the better!

Then, bend the petals back out as much as you want. Depends on how much you want the rose to be open.
Last step is to spray the rose with glimmer mist

So you call this snow...

Between all the lil birdie footprints and Diablo's the decking was covered with them this morning (no mice footprints I'll have you know) I don't know who is worse, me or him. I was running around going ohhh Diablo look this is covered and he would have a good ol sniff of it!

Children's Christmas Art

Some picture I took in Montessori today of some of the art we are doing. It's hard to get a happy medium to do with such a wide range of ages but everything they do is so sweet!

Only 16 days to Christmas!

Took me a full 4 minutes to work that out thats it was 16 days to Christmas this morning, I was carrying ones over and counting back from 25, rounding off numbers.... Maths isn't my strong point first thing in the morning!
I made a mini album to thank a friend for a thoughtful Christmas present and my first new home card!

I don't want to say it

I don't want to say it but I think my camera might be sick. It just won't focus. I've tried different times of the day, different settings, changing batteries, different angles but it just won't focus :( i knew the USB was kicking up but thought the rest of it was ok...obviously not!
The last good photo it took!

Here's a birthday card I made for someone, made a load of Christmas ones and pregnancy ones but it wouldn't take.
Anyone know the number of a camera docotor?
