Purse Box???

Not sure what you would call this. Found it on SCS today and decided to give it a go. I am so in love with the summer mini paper, all three DS Paper would have to be my fav so far from SU

Sorry Nic, she swore me to never show these photos, but I guess she will be so busy with Flynn that she will never see this post!! The flower on the new DS Paper out of the mini just screamed to me to be cut out... easy, simple, and fast layout!

Time out

Well I have just had 3 wonderful days at the beach, no kids, no hubby, a very good friend, junk food, all around silence.. apart from the ocean just down the cliff right outside the decking (and here are the views to proof it!!!

I didnt realise how much I needed to get away until I was there. Sadly, I didnt have my new mini stamps, paper, punches to play with but managed to do 20 layouts, a wall hanging from a kit and a chipboard book for my mother... I promise I will play around with my new SU stuff which arrived while I was away GRRRR! and show you some great cards...... in the meantime, flick over to my other blog and see the first of my creations from my trip away.

Horsing Around

Here is a project that I did a while back, I had and still have a love for horses. The first picture is of the first horse I used to exercise "prince", second one is of my brother and prince.
Third pic is my when I used to be a trackwork rider in racing stables in Te Rapa, with"Blue" (getting ready to load up for NP races). Forth is of me and Marise (she used to be horse mad,,, now she is poodle mad!!), then the last two are of me girls on ponies from last year... (must run in the family!!) Funny thing is that my Hubby is allergic to horses!!! Buggar.
Project is done of mainly SU product.
