My Latest Layout

Some layouts I really struggle with and feel like my mojo has gone right out the door... I persevere most of the time.... sometimes I just have to pick it up and put it aside and not look at it for another week or so.... but I am pleased to say with this layout.. the new range of PrimaAdornitrubons, Lil Davis Designs Endless Summer Chipboard Alphabet letters and on these I used the cutest 7 Gypsies Journal Vines Rubons just for a different effect.
I punched out the hearts and scrunched them, then sewed a sequence and then a bead through the middle of the hearts for that feminine touch. Under the ONLY stickers I have used another punch and in between the scalloped circles I have punched out I have added white tulle finishing off with a pearl hat pin. And of course I have sewn on the outline of my Prima paper.

Thanks for looking and I hope you all had a beautiful Christmas and have caught up with all those friends and family close to your heart.
Night for now
Moonie x papers is just gorgeous.. so feminine and so easy to work with. In this layout I have used the beautiful K&Co chipboard butterflies, letters, the ever so useful Kaiser

Quote of The Day

"Today you are YOU
That is TRUER than true.
There is no one alive
Who is YOUER than YOU."
~Dr Suess

Loove this range by My Minds Eye

These cards are simply gorgeous and will go with most papers to give the page some character and dimension. I love to ink these when I use them, sandpaper the edges and many other ways to jazz these up.. if not they even look simply perfect just raw as they are x
PS I am currently putting together a special LO with this line so watch out for it x
Bye for now Moonie x

A wee note to you all x

Well the silly season is here and we are right in the middle of it. I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas day with your friends and family and got spoilt rotten. I know I did. We had a street party which was great for us as we moved in here only 7 or so weeks ago so it was so great to feel so welcomed by everyone.. lots of food, drinks, presents and music for the kids!! Way to go!! I am actually for once spending the afternoon here at home in my media room with the air on indulging in some DVDs with my family. Sooo good... as we never take the time to just stop and do this. I have my best friend of 14 years coming down from Mackay today with her two gorgeous Daughers Bryony (17) and Amani (5). She kept this as a suprise from me until now. It's her birthday tomorrow and we are going to celebrate in good style... tonight will be filled with belly laughs and tears~!!!!! Can't wait. I hope you are all enjoying some time off or at least time with your family when you can. Christmas this year has been so special to me as I have my Mum and Step Dad over from NZ for two weeks. My sister and I are sharing them and having lots and lots of fun with them. Been to the markets, beach, dinner, lunch, bike riding, shopping, swimming and another week of it left together. So here's to all you special wonderful friends out there.... Merry Christmas and I hope you all have a great New Year filled with love, fun and laughter. Life is good and I could not ask for anything else to complete my life!!
Love Moonie x

Our new home


My 18 yr old daughter and I are privileged to have 4 days to ourselves home alone!! This never happens and we treasure it more than anyone could imagine. We are very close the two of us and it is so nice to not have anyone around us just so we can have that time to just bond and be "US" again.. we haven't done much at all except hang out at home, try clothes on together, swap jewellery, watch DVDs in our new massive media room waiting on each other in turns and just be idiots together...
I was a single mum for a couple of years and now we are a family of four as I remarried 5 years ago and had my wee beautiful boy 6 years ago.. so our own time has pretty much gone out the window as time has flown in this crazy thing called LIFE!! So hence the reason why we are cherishing each and every moment we have been blessed to have together x
Hope you all have a great week and don't forget to slow down a bit... I know it is hard this close to Christmas but all will get done in the end
Night for now

How Cute!!

Shiny Happy Art .....

Hello Everyone

Looking for something to give to someone special for Christmas ! well check this out !
Gorgeous Paintings Aprons,TeaTowels,Cards,CraftKits,Bags etc...

How gorgeous aren't these! All from...

A very clever girl named
from Toowoomba is creating these and you can find them all
Make sure to visit her website

Back online!!!!!!!!!

Wow that was a challenge for me..... 5 weeks without the internet. I am still only using a Mobile BB stick thanks to Westnet as there are apparently NO AVAILABLE PORTS LEFT here in my area... unheard of you say??? Well that's what I thought too. But I have been waiting patiently for a port to become available for me and still none!!!!!!
So until then I am at least online for now.
I have moved into our new house and fully set up and settled. We are loving our 12.5 metre pool to the max. I think I am the most frequent user.. I just can't get enough of it to be honest. And what a difference it makes to my tolerance of the heat so much more. That's when I am at home of course.
I have missed my last Friday night scrapping crop and I am pining for it already. Miss the girls... miss my bestie Melissa but we will be scrapping again asap.
So now I feel a lot more content.... isn't it crazy... that I am back online... that I can check out the challenges, new products, more inspiration, peoples new creations and sink my teeth back into my most favorite hobbie.
Til next time...
Take care
Moonie x
