March?? OMG is has just gone!!!!

I canot believe how fast the months are passing us.  it is just about the end of march already and I just simply cannot believe it.  I have been pretty unwell for most of this month..  I am still struggling with my shoulder, and now I have been diagnosed with Bursitis on my hip which is a killer.  Im not sure if that is the bottom line problem of all my pain as I have it from my ankle all the way up my left and through my hip back and up to my neck.  Yesterday was my first day in March that I walked like a normal human being without a painful limp all day on my left hand side.  Im not sure why but I woke up with no pain in my ankle therefore I was able to put my body weight on it.  I have been on Voltaren for 3 days.  Maybe this has kicked in.  My GP put me on Tremol which I am not a fan of at all but thought just for a week or so I will.. They reacted to another daily medication that I take and I ended up with Restless legs.. which is just cronic.  My whole legs and back had muscle spasms for 3 days straight.. I got 3 hour sleep a night from 3.30am til 6.30am.  I have been a wreck.  My surgeon which is our family friend did some homework for me and come up with the answers.  I threw the Tremil in the bin and my legs have settled down and nearly back to normal.  I can see how people can get hooked on so many tablets and drugs.. take this one.. then this one for that problem.. then this one to fix the problem that those two tablets are doing to you etc.  Crazy Crazy stuff.

Saturday @ work which is Spotlight, I did a demo for the hours 10-3pm.  I did a number of demos but had so many lovely ladies in front of me wanting to learn and get inspired.  I love what I do.  I wish it was my full time job.
I was lucky enough to put together one of the Heidi Swapp Marquee lights.. I just picked a random one off the shelf.
I painted the inside walls with Gold Jo Sonya paint then cut out my T template using Gold Glitter Bella paper.  This was easy and worked perfectly.. I didnt have a hole punch the right size for the light holes.. but managed to use a smaller one and just adjusted accordingly.

I cant wait to do mine for my self.. I have bought... wait for it.. yep.. PL.. for project life.  I think I will need to get the I also and get a cute heart from Typo to put in the middle.  Im surprised there was not a heart in this range.
Also at the end of February I become a consultant for Close To My Heart.  I love their projects and especially love their storage containers.  They are all perfect for Project Life, Scrapping, stamping, or mixed media.  Any form of art these containers are the bomb !!!!!
If you ever want to order anything through me... its simple as.. This is my shop here so just  go in and have a look around..

I am loving the stamps for Project Life.. they are just so funky and a little different which we havent seen before.  On Wednesday I held my first CTMH card workshop.. What a blast.  I had it at home and there were 10 of us, many stamps and papers. Not to mention the cupcakes and cheesecake yummies..
I am just so blessed to have so many gorgeous girls on the Sunshine Coast that I can share my passion with.

Here is my awesome CTMH trolley that I have bought.. I love it.. It fits perfectly all my CTMH containers which contain my PL cards, then my thickers, and then all my die cuts and mats.  It is so awesome hand they all fit perfectly.  The sides have hidden useful pockets which you can store 12x12 paper, sticker sheets, embellies, tools... you name it.  $199.  

While I have not been well I have been sick of being on my bed and resting in the air conditioning as I am a hot bod... so I have set up this outside lounge for me by the pool out of the sun where I can catch the breeze.. Love my little space not to mention my $15 cushion from Target.

That's all for now guys.. Thank you for popping in and having a read.  Cant wait to share some of my work.  I advent for a while yet so I will be soon x
Love always

LOVING GOLD right now

In between doing my monthly Project Life kits... I love to put together my own weekly spread using bits and pieces that I just pick up out of my stash.  I am in love with the gold effect on my pages and have done so for a long time now.  But they are bringing gold out in so many beautiful forms I just can't ever say no.  Below is the LHS of my Week 5 (which I have to add to my card).

A nice mixture of cards and embellishments here this week.
After a huge week at work... and a ten hour day today and a 9 hr one tomorrow I have to clock off.
Night night and have a fantastic weekend. 
Thanks for popping over to my blog.

Flutterby Designs and my gorgeous girl

As you may have read in my last post I have been loving using the new release products NOTE TO SELF from Flutterby Designs.  It is so nice to be able to do a spread like this as it is a change from my weekly pages.  I dedicated these cards to my daughter who turns 24 next month.  She lives 1400km away from me so distance is certainly a problem for us.  But every photo of her I cherish. I love this page I put together.  It is all so her.
Danielle is a burlesque dancer and does Ariel silk ribbon dancing.  She loves doing her performances on the hoop.
Make sure you pop over to Flutterby Designs to see all Anita's yummies over there.

 That's all my friends.. until next time... keep reading, posting and getting creative

Flutterby Designs new release - NOTE TO SELF

If you dont already know ..... I design for Anita over @ Flutterby Designs.  This online store has a tone of delicious flairs, wood veneers, Project Life cards, tabs, you name it she has got it.  All in amazing fun colours and quotes to suit any card or scrapbooking layout you desire.
Last week I excitedly and impatiently waited by the letter box for 2 days waiting for my stash of the new Collection NOTE TO SELF.   It arrived in perfect time for my Project Life retreat I held for a handful of my friends here on the coast.
This was me waiting happily.....

Until the postie just tooted at me and waved.... I wanted to knock him off his happy scooter lol.  I then had to wait another 24 hours for my goodies.

 But then today I wanted to cuddle the postie .... lol

Anyone here seeing these photos would think I had bipolar lol.... But I really dont.  Just that my moods change depending on the mail man.

Go here and check out the gorgeous new wood veneer words.. they are amazing and I just looooove the I <3 be="" font="" going="" im="" in="" life="" next="" one="" or="" project="" so.="" soo="" the="" this="" to="" too.="" using="" week="">

Below and on a few cards I have used the yummy tabs.  Flutterbys do many gorgeous little PAGE TABS to add to any page or pocket.  They are the perfect little embelli.  The LOVE OUR LIFE circle is actually from a Flutterbys card but my head was thinking just this part of the circle was just perfect for the title of this card of me and my two little beauties.  My life wouldn't be the same not having them in it.

On this little pocket below I have used my stamps willy nilly.. I love my stamps.. I love using them and creating my own little card.  I have also adhered Flutterbys WOOD VENEER CIRCLES. The are so cute and are a nice different element on the page. You will find them here.

This is another little NOTE TO SELF card I have used.. Perfect for the self pocket or if you are doing a page on someone else special which is always nice to do and add into your album.  The cute EVERYDAY WOOD VENEER is a Thin Maple Wood veneer and they are so easy to use.  Thin as card stock and adhere perfectly with double sided tape.

The pocket below I have once again cut out the I AM ENOUGH quote from Flutterbys NOTE TO SELF.  I love it.  I have also added the chevron flair and one of my favorite tabs on the left hand side.

This is definitely one of my favorite NOTE TO SELF CARDS... It is just perfect for all of us out there!!!  I have just added a little floral paper which I put through my cuttlebug using the little girl die.  I think its all kinda cute.

So make sure you pop on over to Flutterbys and see their massive selection of stunning embellishments.. You will have fun shopping.  And expect your happy mail in only a few days.

Night night to you all.
Just finished work so I am going to get some well needed beauty sleep.
Love you all
