Just share with you this evening the Halloween ATC's I made this afternoon.
Gosh they where such fun to make, I really enjoyed the whole stamping, cutting and inking process to these atc's.
Here are the products I used to create this atc's : Kaisercraft Grunge Alpha Stamps, Kelly Panacci Twit Twoo Stamp, Versafine Black Ink, Ezcut Paper Dies, See d's Stamp, 7/8 Circle Punch. Astorted Cardstock
In the last two months I have been putting my body through a massive work out for the up and coming summer.
I really want to look good in my bathers this year. I looked ok last year as I had lost 9 kg, but I still looked out of shape and there was a lot of toning to be done. Well that's what this month has been all about toning. 80 crunches, 2 minute planking, lats work out from hell, and a cardio work out to make you sweat, that your sopping wet to boot!
And Yay I can see the results!
I can sure tell to that I'm much stronger, oh and now when I suck my tummy in it actually sucks it...how cool it that. LOL
me not sucking my tummy in...LOL
Well this was just a entry to basically say YAY! me, I'm really pleased with my progress...look out summer the new me is on the way!!
The layout I just posted a photo of in my last post is finished, and I'm quite pleased with it. So here it is for show and tell.
Going out in style : Graphic 45 patterned papers, Times Nouveau Collection, Fashionista Collection and Curtain Call Collection, Jenni Bowlin paper, assorted flowers, paper dollies, BG chipboard Alpha, Heidi Swapp chipboard alpha and ghost clock, ink, Delish metal embellishment and Bella distressing tool.
Distressing on this layout was done with the Bella distressing tool, purchased from spotlight for only $5 bargain!! and something cool to add to my caddy of tools. :)
Here I used the insides of the g's and o's in the title to create a dotted swirl.
The cute little Delish metal embellishment .....perfect!
Well after a busy week and two weekends, I'm now going to try and complete a couple of projects.
One of these has been sitting on my desk since last weekend, when my awesome friend Allison and her beautiful family from Burnie came and stayed with us last weekend. Also with a week of organising Shannon's Grade 10 leavers dinner outfit, Zach spending extra time with high school commitments, organising and coaching a basketball team for Grace's Grade 5/6 Basketball team and making sure Sarah doesn't miss her first ever Trophy presentation day. I think it time for me sit back and relax.
Shannon's Leavers (check)
Zachary Performance night (check)
Basketball Tournament (check)
Soccer Trophy Presentation (check)
its time to complete some other things a bit of me time is in order.
Here is a layout that I'm working on and I'm hoping to complete this, this afternoon,and then I'm going to make some Halloween ATC's .
As I look out my study window and see the rain pouring down I see this as a perfect day to slip on my slippers and get tucked into some great scrapping.
Cheers to another jammed packed weekend with my children....ok it was only really two of them and Grace was the main one for three of the days.
We survived a basketball tournament all weekend, and one very soggy and wet soccer trophy presentation today.
This weekend I had the pleasure of coaching 6 really cool and always motivated girls. These girls represented their school with great honour this weekend, and even in the defeat of 4 games they still held their heads high. This is what makes me enjoy being a part of my children and other children's memories and goals. They showed true sportsmanship and great honour in their school sports uniform. I was one very proud parent/coach/manager.
I would also like to say thanks to our school P.E teacher for turning up on the weekend to score for our team, its awesome to see that he was will to give up his free time to come and support the girls. And the parents that came to support their daughters, they should all be very proud.
WOW what a great school we do have, and its with events like this that make me proud to me a Bowen Road Primary School mum.
I'm always so proud of my children, and both Lance and I always support and encourage our children to participate in a team sport, and this winter just passed we encourage Sarah to participate in the Under 7 school soccer team. Today was her soccer trophy presentation day, so of coursed armed with the camera in hand to catch this moment, we turned up to a cold and rainy presentation. I'm so proud of her for proving to both myself and her father that she has the sportsmanship and courage to get up on incredible cold and freezing mornings to run around a soccer field and have a blast with her fellow team mates. So this afternoon in prime position on the mantel piece we have Sarah first ever trophy and hopefully not the last.
Congrats, Sarah for giving your best in your first every sport, we will support you with many more years of fun! That what parents are for ;)
