Day 177/365 Photo

Today's photo is of Miss T after performing her Jazz dance at the ATOD Choreographic competition today ...she received a Highly Commended for her Jazz ...she also performed a Slow Modern but didn't place for that dance. I was so very proud of her as she performed both beautifully ...this is her only time to shine as she does not do eisteddfod solos and this year didn't even do group eisteddfods.



(this is one of the costumes i made for her with the fabric we purchased this week, here is a bonus photo of the other costume ...they both looked fantastic on stage)

Day 173/365 Photo

Today's photo is of the medal and letter Wayne received in the mail ... he declined to go to the ceremony as he did not want any recognition for his help and he certainly thought the money the government was spending on the ceremony would have better spent helping out those who were affected by the floods. ... but it seems Anna Bligh does not listen and still sent him the medal!

Day 169/365 Photo

well today we added a new addition to our family ....meet Cadbury Gurney ♥


Miss T has wanted a dog for years and when she saw Cadbury it was love at first sight ....he is a Chocolate Labrador (so his name is perfect although A & B wanted to name him Mason, as he is Miss T's puppy she got to name him)born on Anzac Day 25/04/11 and will certainly be well loved by Miss T. She even got him a purple collar to match the Cadbury colours.
I am so not a dog person but i have to admit he is gorgeous and i am sure he will give our family many years of love and affection.

Brag Book | Fancy Pants

here are some photos of some of the pages in my Brag Book ...this was created using some pages from the Fancy Pants Brag Book along with pages, pockets and covers that we made and all bound together with the Bind it All.

Everyone loved the idea of binding their own books, even doing it the hard way with matching up to the Fancy Pants Brag Book pages. They are now ready to tackle making their own books.



 the front cover we used a corrugated board and made it shabby with some linen paint and some course crystal glitter.

 inside front pockets ...i wanted plenty of pockets for memorabilia

 we even made a book mark to add some interest and also keep your page for when you are either completing your journaling or just having a read.

some fancy pants core'dinations embossed cardstock adds some texture ...along with fancy pants photo sleeve pages

fancy pants pocket pages for more bits and pieces

some fancy pants stickers and here is a look at the journaling pages




another fancy pants pocket page embellished with a maya road pleated satin trim flower

 one more pocket to finish off the book

I have used Fancy Pants the little things patterned papers, Fancy Pants Lilac House Stickers, Maya Road Chipboard Words, Mist, Sheer Birds and Pleated Satin Trim, Imaginisce Bling Flowers & Buttons, Couture Creations Gemstones, Martha Stewart Onyx & Course Crystal Glitter, Artiste Linen Paint and Seam Binding Ribbon.


The great thing about creating this Brag Book was i got to relive our Asian Christmas Cruise that we took in Dec/Jan 09/10 there were 16 of us from my side of the family that went and it certainly was the trip of a life time for all of us as it is not something we will probably get to do again with all of together.  I actually printed some photos from our cruise for the very first time so there is another bonus .... now I am off to add some more embellishments to my book and of course the journaling.

we had rugby this morning up at Caboolture ...which meant leaving home at 7am and not finishing until after 1pm as B was to sit on the bench (sadly he didn't get a run but did a great job keeping the bench warm) for the 1sts team as well as play for his team who he had a great game with.
So on the way home we dropped in for Maccas for the boys and i just had to get some Krispy Kremes for me...sadly 1 dozen Krispy Kremes don't last long in our house, but i managed to get a photo before they were all gone.


mmmm ....don't they look good ☺

Tonight we went to see Edward Gant's Amazing Feats of Loneliness at the LaBoite Theatre.
To say I LOVED IT is an understatement ....i have not stop raving about it or thinking about it since.
If you are in Brisbane I highly recommend you going to see it before it closes here in Brissie and heads to Sydney and for those living in Sydney make sure you get your tickets now.
All of the actors were fabulous and it was especially true of our friend and local super star Paul Bishop who plays Edward Gant ...so my photo for today is Paul as Edward Gant.
