Stamp with Fun Challenge

Im really enjoying making little things like the cards rather than doing a full LO at the moment.

Been trolling some blog challenge sites and came across this one at stamp with Fun. their challenge was to make a little present. here is the little box i made for my daughters teacher and filled with chocolates

The photos arent real good as i took them at night as I knew we would be in a rush in the morning to getto school and I would forget to take the photos.

New MDU Challenge

theres a new challenge over at Magnolia Down Under and I actually have time to do this one.

Wonders will never cease. The theme is Bedazzled...bling it up!!

I had to use all my new yummy Magnolia Xmas stamps that I got from Kellies shop.

Here is my effort!

I have tried to make one of those 3D window type cards. Im pretty happy with my effort!

Not sure if the photo shows up all the glittery bits. i have put Kindyglitz(lots on all the presents and gold kindyglitz on the tree as baubles.

Ok off to try and control the chaos that is my life...AKA a moody 10 year old and 2 crazy boys under 3....argghhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have loved and admired the gorgeous Magnolia stamps for quite sometime. but never been actually lucky enough to own any. Well.....I'm now the proud owner of quite a few...slowly building up my collection. So now I thought..well you have had better start using them. Hence me making a few cards lately!

I'm not really a card maker, and I actually get nervous making a card. no idea why i just do. Anywho.....I've been scouring a few blogs to get some ideas and came across Kellie Winnell's blog. She also has a Magnolia challenge blog...this week the challenge is a sketch so I thought..why not give it a shot. Now its only very plain, which is so not like me at all, but its done, even if it does follow the sketch really Again so not like me!
So here is my effort for the sketch at MAgnolia Down Under Challenges.

I so want to whack some flowers on it but seeing as I'm actually going to be mailing it to someone through the post i decided not to.

What I've been up to...

Kids and work take up so much of my time I hardly know if I'm Arthur or Martha most days.

I havent even been scrapping much. i know shck horror. Its been a big shock to me as well.
But scarily I'm not missing it. Maybe I needed a break from it.

hopefully it wont be too long a break Ive got so much stuff here to

I have done some things just not much. Even been making a few cards which again is scary. i dont normally make cards but i am loving doing them.

A change is as good as a holiday dont they say?

Well here are some shares.

lets push our luck..

and try for a third post...O my! Such a risk taker i

Now the third installment in my family.

Flyn.....lets just say he has his own personality...he is a bit of a princess at times...and already at nearly 18 mths I can tell he is going to be my nightmare child.

he is into EVERYTHING....and I do mean EVERYTHING.
He wont take No for an answer and just keeps doing whatever he is doing.

But he is just so darn cute!! And he knows it.. O my!

ok lets try again while the going is good..

Still cant figure out how to move my photos around...Grr at blogger.

Ok next Child update.

Jack is now nearly 27 months. OMG where has that time gone?? No idea I tell you!.
he is such a character, cheeky and so sweet.
And a live wire...OMG he never stops from sun up to sun down.

Ok look slike another succesful Post...well heres hoping

i dunno....

what happened to my post yesterday.
maybe Blogger was in such a shock that i had actually posted anything it couldnt cope?? LOL

It was pretty photo heavy so maybe I overloaded it.

Ok will do smaller posts today and see how it copes.

Basically yesterdays post was just about how crappy this year has been for me and my family but we are trying to keep our heads above water and soldier on.
Not going to retype the whole darn thing cause frankly I'm over it!

But here is some updated photos.

Will do one child in each post so I dont freak it out again.

First K...she is growing up so much.

Now 10 years old and hormone territory so watch out!!

Loves netball and basketball and school.

Ok cant getthe photos how I want them...Maybe Im no longer blogger savvy??
ok will post this before it disappears on me.

i duuno....

i duuno....
