Just Add... Birthdays!

This week's challenge at Just Add Ink is "birthdays", but the idea is to think a bit outside of the norm and come up with something a bit different (from a card, I guess).

Have a look at this site:
You just have to see Bronwyn Eastley's awesome cupcake box!

Here's my little attempt. It was Emma's birthday not so long ago, her big FIRST, and I decorated my Everyday Display with photos of her. I used the gorgeous new Creative Cuts tool to make the letters out of Simply Beautiful papers. The background papers are also Simply Beautiful, from the birthdays pack, as are the paper ribbon and paper flowers.

We Stamp For Lara

This looks like a really worthwhile cause that I would like to support. However, I don't seem to be getting any crafting done recently! I have some blogging to catch up on that I must get done this week.

Home Away from Home

I have been busy busy busy with my albums, but not posted anything, for reasons that are clear to many of you... my album is a (surprise) gift for someone! However, I've decided to post a few pictures so that you can see what I have been working on. I have been using the new page planner templates HEAPS, which is speeding up my project no end. Thank goodness for that... I have a very definite deadline, and it's coming up fast! I have 10 more page spreads to complete, and 10 days to do them in... one a day doesn't sound that hard, does it?!
This page features use of the new page planner templates, the Creative Cuts tool (loving it!), and the Simply Beautiful colours - papers, ribbons and flowers.
