years in the making...

finally i have completed this wall canvas for Taylah's room and actually hung it on her wall
now it is very basic but i wanted to paint her room before hanging it and as it was just a job we never got to the canvas got put off and put off - the letters have been covered and embellished for at least 18 months... just waiting for us to decided on the wall colours, so i could paint the canvas the colour the walls would be... and so we decided on the colour probably 12 months ago and i painted the canvas still no sticking on of the letters as i was still waiting for the walls to be painted! So now i am over waiting and have stuck everything on and hung it on her wall, it would look better with the walls painted but it is up.
The letters and flower are the now discontinued Making Memories Chipboard and the papers are We R Memory Keepers White Out Hoopla Collection which i love and bought loads of so i would always have it in my stash ☺

The most anticipated musical theatre extravaganza in Australia, WICKED, is set to fly north of the border to open in all its emerald glory in the Lyric Theatre, QPAC in January 2011. Melbourne and Sydney audiences have been blown away by WICKED and now it’s Brisbane’s turn.

I have seen this musical in Melbourne and it is the best show i have ever seen - I certainly will be going to see it as often as i can while it is showing in Brissie

here is Taylah outside the theatre

Seaworld Layouts

on Sunday the 6th June Taylah and I spent a lovely afternoon at Sea World visiting the animal attractions and the Pirate show.
here are some photos from our day

I have used my left over Basic Grey Sultry on all pages and also have managed to use up some very old stickers and embellishments mixed in with some new products.

Maya Mist Colour Swatch

long time no post... i have been very busy with the kids.

so here is something i saw on the Maya Road Design Team Blog

I loved the idea and as i didn't have enough of the Maya Road Tags i made my own using up old bits of chipboard.

So now when i am out shopping i can have my colour swatch so that i don't double up, it also works great for colour matching on projects.

I will be back later with some layouts i have done..
