Family Fun

It was a long weekend here in Tassie to celebrate the Queen's Birthday (belatedly I might add) and it usually falls within our Winter holiday break.

Yesterday most of my side of the family came to visit for the day.

After stuffing ourselves with lots of casseroles and sweets, playing the Wii, talking cars etc. it was time to let my brother's girls have a play with Auntie Bronwyn's crafty goodies.

I got out 5 punches - 2 scallop circle ones, the bird and owl punches as well as the Build a Cup Cake punch and lots of retired sheets of DSP and let them have the time of their lives.

Needless to say they will have fun putting all the pieces together and making some cards at home over the remainder of the holiday break.

All the punched pieces got popped inside separate envelopes for a 'rainy day'.

No.1 with the XL Scallop Circle Punch

No. 2 - a possible SU Demonstrator in about 6 years time!!

No. 3 - taking a break in between the stamping and the punching.

No. 4 - Who liked to use my two way glue to write with!

It's been an early start to the Winter season with snow on the nearby mountains. I am so thankful for the awesome view from our back yard!

Hopefully, I'll be back with some crafty bits and pieces to show very soon as I have two more workshops coming up and lots of Big Shot ideas to share.

Happy crafting,


Oh my!! That view is breath taking! How lucky you are to look out at that everyday. Sounds like you (and the girls) had a fantastic long weekend.
