Fresh fish!

We finally had gorgeous weather a couple of days ago and Jeff and Aimee took the boat out for an afternoons fishing near Kawau Island. My gosh! The snapper they caught were huge! So, tonight we are having our second meal of fresh pan-fried snapper, home-made chips and salad and there was still plenty to give away. So cool!!
This layout is for another of the Frosted Designs 12 Days of Christmas Challenges. 10 completed! Two to go...dont know if I'll make it!

Challenge 6: Six pieces of washi tape ( 5 are the chevron design and 1 is measuring tape)

If I dont get another chance to blog, I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year!!

Family 2012

I just love our annual Ellis family Christmas! We have celebrated this, the week before Christmas, for over 30 years.  This year we were down in numbers because Rick and family moved to Sydney early this year and Lloyd and Ben are also based in Sydney. But we still had an awesome day with great weather!

This layout completes another of Frosted Designs 12 Days of Christmas Challenges: 11 Banners! I have another 3 days to do at least one more challenge, but hopefully the last 3 remaining!

The sketch I used for this challenge is Sketchabilities #81. Their cool sketches are well worth checking out to get you started!
The patterned papers are Glitz designs! Have I mentioned how I love their papers!! LOL!

Tags and cards

With Christmas so close and recent birthdays and babies, I have making lots of cards and tags!
I have been trying to get through Frosted Designs 12 Days of fun Christmas challenges. So here are a few more covered!

Challenge 2: Two stamps ( Welcome baby and the 'B' in the middle of the star.)

Challenge 3: Three mist/inks/paints
I have used TH Distress inks - Peeled Paint, Broken China and Fired Brick on this tag.

Challenge 7: Seven sparkly snowflakes.
I made 7 Christmas cards with one large sparkly snowflake on each. (Hope this fits the challenge ok!)

Challenge 8:
Eight different products or brands:
MME patterned paper, Tim Holtz metal cogs, Spellbinders cog die, Making Memories screw eyelets, October Afternoon brad (Take note), Cosmo Cricket stickers (33), Peelcraft 'L' and Hero Arts 'Birthday Wishes' stamp.

My son turns 33 this Thursday! It is scary how fast those 33 years have gone!! Just thought... His birthday is 20 12 2012!! How about that?
We had our extended family Christmas yesterday, so hopefully I will have time to scrap some of the pics for another of the challenges.

All About You

Emma at 30 weeks! Doesnt she look stunning?!! I took this photo at the baby shower. We all had to wear something pink, hence the pink ribbon around her...ummm...above her tummy! Em has a very infectious giggle, so I am sure she will have a very bouncy, happy baby !

I have used more of my fabulous Glitz Designs stash. I just love their stuff! I have used papers and embellies from the Cashmere Dame, Hello Friend and Pretty in Pink, ranges. The doilies are cut with a Spellbinders D-lite die.
Frosted Designs is having 12 days of Christmas challenges. I am going to try and do at least 10 of them!! This layout is for the 1st Day...use 1 bird. My bird is in the top right hand corner.
I have based the layout on the Sketchabilities #80 sketch.
We have our local 'Carols in the Park' tonight, but I dont think the weather is going to play fair! Its so disappointing for the people who put in so much effort.
Sue :)
