11 years old today!

Its my sons 11th birthday...i cant believe how old he is getting & so fast.....he has had a great birthday!
We went to hungry jacks for lunch & then to the park for a play before heading over to my parents place for birthday cake & more presents!!
I made him a guitar hero card as he loves his xbox games!
I used shimmer papers. The guitar hero words were from scal & the guitar came from indie art cartridge.

im so tired,,i went to the freo game last night & YAY FOR WINNING!!
Didnt get home til very late as all the trains were not running to schedule due to all the staff  'being sick' or maybe it was an industrial strike in disguise...either way perth was SERIOUSLY DELAYED lol

I think the trains ran once every hour if not good...but we all had to go to the game & cheer on our freo boys!!

My Birthday

It was my birthday the other day & i got some great gifts!!!

I got 3  new cricut cartridges from america...they arrived on my birthday! Perfect timing!! I got Life is a beach, summer fun & easter 2010. I have had a quick play with them but cant wait for the weekend when i get more time!
Last weekend i went on a scrapbooking bus tour.. ( as part of my birthday present from darling husband) was the first one in western australia!! It was so much fun & even though i went by myself i met some lovely people & also got to meet a cricut forum member in person...other than just chatting to her online!
I bought new mats..both the 12x12 & the 12x 24! HUGE!!! got some great inks...glitters....papers ect
I really hope they organize another one ( when i save up some more money!)  It stopped at 6 scrapbooking stores and we had lunch at one of was excellent!
Got to make & take a lot of great things plus got a freebie bag on the bus filled with great scrapping items!

A pic of us getting on the scrapbooking bus!

A make & take of dusty attics chipboards..very sweet...the flower on chipboard is a pin/broach.

Last night my husband & i went to a preview screening of Going the distance movie. It was great & funny! Not to mention it was so good to have a child free night!!

Cricut covers & cards!

This weekend i found time to make my pink expression cricut cover!! I think it turned out pretty good considering i didn't have a sewing machine. I used hemming tape which is a fusible webbing in strips...which sticks the 2 fabrics together after you iron it...amazing stuff! lol
So here is my cricut cover....i added a little kindy glitz to the the flower middles after i took the pic but this pic will do for now :)
I also made a quick cord holder bag for the usb & power cords
If anyone was interested in making one for their cricut go to custom crops website or youtube for the video!
It really was simple to make once you had all you need to make it!

I also found time to make the eb card swaps..this month it was circular cards with a bit of green and a wild animal....i hope an owl is close enough :)
Im thinking of adding a little to them before i post them & i havent added a greeting to them yet but the bulk of them are done!  I used scal for the circular card the scallop circle and the owl...stampin up for the branch/leaves and kaisercraft script clear mini stamp with stampin up melon ink ..cardstock bazzil for the colours & stampin up vanilla for the card :)

well its late & i best be getting to bed soon
