Some Bits and Pieces and an apology

Wow, things have been so weird and crazy around here lately that I have been totally neglecting my blog and crafting.  There has been a few things happening, some family stuff, school went back, birthday craziness and an upcoming craft fair which I am going to be selling my cards at (well hopefully some cards anyway:)

I have made this layout this week for the Challenge Me Happy blog, this month it is a photo challenge....


I made it using some glimmer sprays and my Central High Studio Calico Kit, I am pretty excited as my new kit arrived earlier this week but I haven't had a chance to play, hopefully I will this weekend.  I am listing the overun from my September Kit on Trade Me, I usually get 2 of some of the stuff as I am getting both the card kit and the scrapbook kit.  Go check out the "Stuff I am Selling" link at the top of my blog under the header to have a look.

I also made this card for my Dad for his birthday, no image which is unusual for me......


I forgot to take a pic before I left the house so this one was taken after Connor had written in it and Dad had read it so please excuse the bends :)  I used the Echo Park This and That Genuine collection to make the card.

A couple of weeks ago I made this dress for JoJo for the summer, I love the way it turned out and the colours look great on her.  Also a refreshing change from pink I guess.



I took the photos in my Mum and Dad's awesome garden.  The dress is still a little big but I have made it that way so it fits her once Summer comes.

So that is it a little round up of what I have been busy with, thanks for dropping by and I would love to know what you think of my creations :)
