Pot Luck Voila

When a friend recently decided to have a "Pot Luck" dinner for her birthday I couldn't wait to be asked to make the I offered.  I had an idea in mind but I didn't even have the stamp set.  One of the great things about being a demonstrator is that you have access to a variety of forums that connect you with other demos all over Australia, New Zealand and the WORLD!!!

So I put out a call for help and the lovely Nicki Turner offered to stamp a bunch of the Voila Chef for me to use.  She sent them all the way from WA, isn't that amazing.

Anyway, real simple card but I love, love, love it!!

Don't forget if you would like to be a demo and have access to all kinds of forums that are full of ideas and connections, get 20% discount on all your orders, plus 30% off your first order in the first 45 days (which you could wait for new catty items!!), early access to catalogues just to name a few benefits, lol, call me on 0403 528 522 or email me before 31st July!!!

Great Card for a Great Friend

Don't you just love it when you really want to make a special card for someone and it just works???  I love this card soooo much.  It is my very first try at a Tri Shutter Card and whilst there may be a little thing here and there I would do different next time over all I am really happy with it and as it was for a special friend I am even happier.
Here it is standing up, I just love the dimension!
Here it is opened all the way out.
Very bad close up of the inside.

And another bad one of the last page.

I wrote my message on the very back of the card as I didn't want to "ruin" it with my terrible handwritting!!!

Don't forget Close to my Heart is this Friday night, click on the pages on the top left side for more information!!

I Still Can't Believe they have Chickens and Rabbits at Taronga Zoo!!

StampAmemory's  Challenge #12 is to create a layout about your family pet or your favourite animal.  I'm still so excited about winning the last challenge that I am all inspired to keep scrappin!!  So with only a few minutes left (yet again) here is my interpretation:

Do you like my punch art?  The chicken was inspired by Heather Summers and the rabbit by Amy Celona but I discovered you need just about every punch to do any kind of punch art, lol, so I made quite a few changes including adding feet to my chicken (aren't they cute).

My favourite thing about this page is the memories it brings me, the girls excitement about going to the zoo, their insistance that they wanted to see chickens and rabbits, my insistance that they wouldn't be at the zoo, their (and my) suprise when the very first animals we saw were chickens and the joy at being able to hold and pat a gorgeous bunny rabbit.  And I guess that is what scrappin is all about....memories.

PS Sorry about the quality of the photos but it is nearly midnight after all :)
