Our little Stephen (as we call him) turned 1 yesterday. I invited George & Medina to have a little party at our house. I made a cake - everyone covered it in Smarties and we popped a No. 1 candle in the middle. Stephen was amazed by the flame of the candle - of course as all little kids are and immediately went to grab it......LOL. As most little toddlers do - he crumbled all his cake on the table. I think he managed a couple of small crumbs before we promptly wiped him clean...........LOL.
It was so nice to be able to spend time with him on his birthday.
I will include some photos soon.

I met some new people which was great and I also got to teach my girly pirate cards to 3 young ladies who were very well behaved - well done Georgia, Indi and Maddy - you were a pleasure to teach.
I will take a photo of my name badge that I made for the day and hopefully Nicole will have some photos of the Said Simply blog soon to share as well.
I'm off to bed now as I'm pooped.
(Oh and thanks to Marie who has kindly added a card to my Week 1 sketch - you need to have a look at the Slide at the top of the page)

I have used an old paper doyley and ripped it - that was the challenge - a ripped flower, no bling, machine sewing (I cheated I used a stamp by HeroArts....LOL) and NO BLING. Hello that is not as easy as I thought...........LOL. OH and the the theme is "music" so I opted for a stem and leaf stamped with a music stamp by FernGully Stamps.
I was happy how this one turned out. I went for the colour combo when I was shuffling through my green pp I stumbled across this one which has a blue smudged edge to it - thought now that's something different.......
I also recycled the piece of the paper doyley that I ripped and used it as a scallop border down the bottom attached with staples.
Thanks for popping in. I luv to see who has been visiting and I luv comments so if you can leave me a comment and I will pop over to your place for a lookie too.

Thank you to everyone who has been contributing - I just luv to see what you have been creating.
Didn't have a very good sleep last night. I was up at 4.45am this morning so I decided to knit. I have been knitting little cupcakes for our School Fete Craft Stall. They are coming up very nicely. My friend has kindly offered to sew them up for me once I've knitted them - that's a great deal I reckon as I'm not to keen on the sewing part...........LOL. I will be able to share a photo of them soon. May even get around to making a special one just for me.
Hope you all have a great day.
I will be popping up a new sketch tomorrow.

It's Tammy's 12th Birthday today. The day started with giving her the pressies. Dropped the kids off at school spent all morning at our Craft Group creating goodies for the upcoming Fete so that took me through to lunch time. Home for a quick bite and then I had to make Tam's cake - opted for cupcakes on my u-beaut cupcake stand- came up great. While I was baking I put on a video of The American President - I love this film. She loved them anyway that was the main thing. Picked up the kids from school and had afternoon tea for Tam - decided not to have a party as such this year. Sean's mum and dad joined us for dinner which was nice and then we sat around the kitchen table and played cards. We were all a bit crazy tonight - too much sugar me thinks.
That's it for me - this little black duck needs to get some serious sleepies.
Hope all is well in your part of the world.

(P.S. I've gotta say that there are 100's of things I could be doing today - but getting back into a little creating is very calming after such a hectic week or 2)
I think I need to do some thinking - perhaps I could have a little Blog Challenge all of my own..........thinking, thinking.......

We are all VERY tired however achieved so much in such a short time. They are going to be so happy in their new home - a HUGE change from their motor home that they have been touring Australia in for the last 7 years.
Josh's First Communion was so nice. Josh is a funny fella. He is usually such a little mischief maker - TROUBLE I say!!!!! However, last night he looked very angelic almost - he takes mass very serious and last night was a huge thing for not only us as parents but also for him. It's so nice to see. We were very proud of him. I shall pop some photos up on my blog soon. I'm just a little tired tonight.
Looking forward to chilling a little this week. I have a few projects on the go but nothing I cant handle.
Preparations for the Fete are coming along a bit better now so that is a relief.
Kids finish up for school holidays this Friday - bring it on I say!!!!!!
Hope you have all had a beaut weekend.

We are all really pleased for them - its been a long wait but its great.
Sean's brother and the gang and sister and her gang are all arriving tonight to help with the moving tomorrow and then we have Josh's First Communion tomorrow night. Boy are we going to be busy tomorrow. We will have 22 for dinner................arghhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! So for me tomorrow is baking and cooking. Cant think of what to do just yet but I'm sure after a good nights sleep things will be clearer. I have had one HUGE week and its only going to get more hectic. It's Tammy's birthday on Tuesday too.
Best get some sleep me thinks!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have used Elysee trims from Prima and the stamps are by Rusty Pickle - I love these stamps.
Hope you all have a beaut weekend.
