Cupcakes all round!!

This last week has been one huge party!! well not quite...but both myself & my son are now a year older!!
I was having a great lots of new cricut cartridges from my hubby & kids, went and had lunch with hubby & watched my daughter do cross country ( its a long distance run that is done with several schools participating) and then hubby bought me some flowers...sounds all so good doesnt it!!

Then as my daughter was doing cross country we had to wait for the bus to return to the school which was 10 min late after the siren....when we got back to our car in the car park a mum had reversed straight into our car!! Happy birthday!!!

So it kind of made my day not so great & we are now waiting on them to claim it through insurance hoping its soon as we can not open the door they hit & with 3 kids they are not finding it easy to share one door!

Also i received the Cupcake lite cartridge from the lovely Patricia at The Crafty Kitten I had won her blogoverary prize & it arrived on my birthday!!! ( that made me happy again!!)
So if you want a blog to check out hop on over & follow her!!

My son is now a 12 year old!! i still cant believe my first baby is so grown up!!
He had a party at the bowling centre & invited his friends...they all had a great time & my son actually won both games of bowling they played....and all the kids loved the arcade was hard to get them to leave when it came time to go!!

this week im hoping to get back into scrapbooking & stuff....i have a fathers day card & a birthday card to make!!
have a great day

I made it onto a Design Team!!

Hi all

The other day i got an email to say i made it onto a design team...its the first time i have ever thought of putting myself out to speak!
I was so happy to get the email & even happier when the store sent me some goodies to road test!!

So what store is it??? Its a west Aussie store that is online & ships around aus ( sorry not sure if they ship internationally) called SAWYERS PLACE

The store sells lots of great embellishments like Washi tapes, cloth tapes, brads, flowers & hot fix rhinestones ect....Also as being my follower you get to have 5% off any order you place with them....just by entering the code MICHELLE at checkout!!! how great is that!!

Here are some cards i made with my new items from Sawyers entering the thank you card in the challenge 33 over at DYSU challenge blog

I used candy pink washi tape on both cards along with fuchsia daisies and gem brads in blush & true pink which you can buy at Sawyers Place!!

I also did a layout using the Argyle check washi tape & a blush gem brad from Sawyers Place....I had never used washi tape before it arrived & must admit i think i LOVE IT!!! its so easy to use & as its a tape i dont need to use adhesive!!

So dont forget to use the code to get 5% off at Sawyers Place

Last night i managed to do a few scrap pages while the kids watched a movie before bed. I love the weekends....but don't often get to scrap as much as i want
Im slowly getting my old pics of when i was little scrapped for my album....This one is when we spent time with our cousins while our mums went off to play bingo! Lots of fun memories were made during these times!!
I added a banner with lets play written on it & stamped & embossed a medium bingo stamp i received from Platypus creek stamps.

Head on over to Scrappin' Chics Challenge Blog to enter their August Challenge of using Pennants or Banners.....go on it is so easy!!!

Later this afternoon im off to a Stampin up retirement party...sounds like so much fun....i might pre order the new catalogue!!
