I have just made this birthday card for someone special, my future daughter-in-law who has a birthday next week! The papers are from Prima's Fairy Flora 6x6 pad, the pansy punch is Martha Stewart, the bling is Zva, the leaves, Prima  and the flowers are a mix from my stash.
I am going to enter it in Patricia's Anything Goes challenge at The Beary Scrap.

Final jump in the Blog Hop!

WELCOME to my blog!
 Wow! There have been some awesome projects on show this week! I have certainly been inspired! Hopefully you will enjoy this last day of inspiration!
 Here is today's giveaway from Scottie Crafts to be won in a random draw.
To be in the draw simply follow my blog by joining Google friend connect, which is in the sidebar.
Then leave me a comment . (Easy peasy at this end of the hop!)
Tomorrow the GRAND PRIZE will, also, be drawn. Be sure to check back to the Scottie Crafts blog tomorrow.
How cool are all these goodies to be won by one of you lucky ladies!!

Ok! Off we go!
My project uses Cricut products, but, apart from the large doily, can be easily adapted using other dies and punches.
For this weekend only, Scottie Crafts is offering 2 only, Cricut Expression Machines for $649.99, including 4 cartridges!! Now that could be top of your Christmas list and under your Christmas tree! It is the most awesome of toys!!

Christmas Table Centrepiece
Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art Cricut cartridge
Christmas papers -2 sheets of red, 1 sheet green, 1/2 sheet blue (aqua)
4 kitchen glass tumblers
Dble-sided tape, Glue Dots, liquid glue
Kindy Glitz

1. Using the Cricut cartridge 'Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art', cut:
    Red paper - 8 scallop circles at 3inches, 4 lace borders at 1inch, 1 large doily at 11inches
    Green paper - 2 of each letter, N, O, E, L at 2 1/2 inches, 4 scallop borders at 1"
    Blue paper - Shadow of letters (2 of each) N, O, E, L at 2 1/2", 8 bows at 1"
   (If any cricut owner would like the cricut cut files, please email me)

2. Layer the green and red lace border strips and attach, with double sided tape, to the lower edge of the tumbler. Trim if needed. Add bows, as shown, with a Pop Dot. Decorate with Kindy Glitz.

3. Layer and glue a green letter to corresponding blue shadow letter. Glue the letters to red scallops and decorate around the letter and the scallop with Kindy Glitz.

4. Pop Dot one scallop to 2 opposite sides of the tumbler. (As a centrepiece it will be seen from both sides)
 Hint: Put the 'L' behind the 'N', the 'E' behind the 'O' etc. Otherwise the other side will read 'LEON'
(been there, done that! Doh!!)

5. Arrange with flowers and place on the large red doily! ( I used dried muehlenbeckia twigs to hold my flowers).
Happy Crafting!!! :)

P.S. Check out my last blog entry to see the leafy frame on my layout - another gorgeous cut from this Elegant Cake Art cartridge.

Cheers and thanks for stopping by x

A Day in Paradise

While in Aitutake, friends took us out in their boat for a dream day at some outer islands. We snorkelled, wandered on the whitest sand bars and had lunch at their little hideaway bach on One-Foot Island. We took salad and buns etc with us and Andrew cooked fresh marinated tuna, on the BBQ. What an awesome day!!
This is a quick, mostly Cricut cut layout! The leafy/flower frame is cut from my new Elegant Cake Art cartridge. This cart is so cool! It is designed by Martha Stewart and includes a lot of her punch shapes, e.g lace and lace borders.
The letters I cut from the Storybook cartridge, which I have layered with a shadow letter and covered with Glossy Accents. The other flowers and leaves are from my stash of left-overs from other projects!

Check my blog  tomorrow ( my blog-hop day) for a great special on Cricut products at Scottie Crafts! Meanwhile pop over to Sarah's blog today for Day 5 of the Blog-hop and see her wonderful project, prizes and specials on offer!
