The Perfect Shady Spot Layout

PLEASE DROP BY MY NEW PAGE ON FACEBOOK https://www.facebook.com/punknscrap and drop me a like :)

Hope all you NZers had a fabulous Labour Weekend and today those of you that are back at work can appreciate the reason we have a day off which is the recognition of the builder from Wellington who fought for the 8 hour working day.
Meanwhile I will stay home and do my housework and care for my kids, which I do willingly whatever hours :)

So yesterday while hubby was home and the kidlets were occupied outside playing I decided to make a layout with one of the older Noel Mignon kits mixed with one of the newer ones.  I found these photos on my stick from 2012.  They were taken in the summer at my mum and dads.

I also added a few bits from my stash including the very cute puffy animal stickers.

Okay so now I am off to do some of that housework I mentioned earlier and then see how the day day progresses :)

Happy scrapping....

Meeting Astar the Goodmorning Craft Guru

On Thursday night my friend Vicki and I went to the Farmlands ladies night in Palmerston North where Astar and Nici Wickes were the entertainers.  Nici is a chef and has a tv show, and she was pretty good considering cooking isn't really my thing at all.  That is probably because she didn't talk about cooking though;)  However Astar was the reason I wanted to go.  Other than hanging out with Vicki of course!  Astar does a craft segment on a morning tv show here and I LOVE HER!!!!!!  Here is my photo of her and I......

I started a bit of a trend asking her if I could have a photo because after I had mine done, thanks in huge part to Vickii who pushed through these woman who wouldn't stop talking to her and would have kept going if Vicki hadn't intervened, lots of other ladies got a chance to chat with her and have a photo too :)

We all made a ring as designed by Astar....

The one I made failed due to the glue not curing properly so the wonderful Astar gave me hers.  She is so awesome it is just ridiculous.  I liked her from watching her on tv but now after seeing her in person and meeting her I am now a crazy fangirl.

So there you go a quick run down of me ad Vicksters big night out :)

Just Like Riding a Bike With Close To My Heart

Hi - I have another card for you today using a pocket scrapbooking card, this time a little more blinged up.

Using a CTMH cardstock base I cut my My Reflections "wanderful" paper to size and matted to the base.  I then added the super cute bicycle card to the left side and sprayed with gold mist on either side.  Once the mist had dryed I added sprayed binding ribbon and a pearl strip to the bottom then layed down a flower cluster.  Very appropriate as Spring is blooming here in New Zealand at the moment and daylight saving has just begun.

Thanks for joining me today, happy scrapping.

Congratulations on your Baby News.....

My blogging friend Chris  is expecting a new grandchild next year which is very exciting for her :)  I made up a card for her and her family to say congratulations.....

Obviously coloured in baby neutral colours as they don't know the sex yet.  Also flat as I sent by standard post :)

The papers are my all time fave MME Sweetest Thing collection and the image is by Mo Manning.  I coloured the image with my copic markers.

The weather has suddenly turned gorgeous of course since school goes back on Monday after 2 weeks break.  So I am off to get some Vitamin D while I can.

Happy scrapping :)
