Hey Hey!!!

Hello!  Well they say when it rains, it pours........well it certainly did at Kobi's birthday party.  It is definitely one we will remember.  Long story short, beautiful day until we started setting up for the party out at the gardens....thunder, no, it's okay, we think it will just pass.  Well it didn't, every one arrived, everyone got soaked (I mean it bucketed down), jumping castle collapsed, food went sogg
y, and after a while we decided to pack up and go home!  We went back home, about 15 mins later the sun shines!!!!  The main thing was the cake survived the trip :)  Just our luck!!! Oh well, next years a pool party!!!!
So this little guy is now getting ready to be a big preppie boy next year.  He actually had a cry tonight because he wanted to read just like Cooper, he really tries, he knows a lot of books by memory.  I think he is going to flourish next year at big school!!!  You drive me up the wall some days (LOL) but my gosh I Love you so much sweet boy xoxo
Okay, so wanting to share a couple of creative things today too!!!!
  The first one is a DT creation for Shimmerz. 
Of course this is what I get these days when I ask for a selfie with the boys, lots of giggles and cheekiness!!!!  Yes, they are my little treasures :)
I have used the following products:
Dimensionz in Streets of Gold and Green Thumb
Dazzlerz in Sour Apply
Spritz in Mango Madness and 4 Leaf Clover
Shimmerz in Key Lime and Apricot
"Mummy's Treasures"

I have also used another of those 2 Crafty feathers..........oh they are gorgeous!  I have applied Dazzlerz in Sour Apple to it.

I applied some Shimmerz to the resin feathers to add a little more colour.  I also did this with the light bulb.......I just love how the Shimmerz products take to these embellishments!  Some cool effects!

I actually started this layout by applying texture paste to a feather stencil.  I then applied the Spritz and lifted up the page, that is how I got the dribble effect underneath.  But of course, me being me, my feather background is almost completely unseen........part of the process I always say :)

I just love the Dazzlerz colour in Sour Apple.  It just makes a layout 'pop'!!!!  I have used it under and around some of my embellishments.

Lots of Prima pretties, Heidi Swapp and Crate papers!

Here you can find the Shimmerz Store and don't forget to mention my name at checkout to receive your free bottle of the New Dimensionz :)


The super gorgeous Winter Issue of Paperhaus is now up and live!  Here is the link :
It's full of beautiful inspiration for the festive season. Grab a cuppa and check it out!!!


While I am here thought I would share this quick creation I whipped up.  Have I told you I'm a little addicted to feathers lately ;)
I used mostly Glitz Wild and Free here!  Of course lots of Shimmerz too.
"Love the Look"

Here are some detailed shots for you :)

That's it for my creations today............more to share soon!

So, is anyone else way behind like me and still thinking of doing a December Daily (it's not too late right) ???  I'm thinking I might just create a mini album and just document particular days.....not everyday!! 
Anyways, best get off here, gazillion things to do!
Have a great week xoxo
