Day 151/365 Photo

today's photo is of a page i created after seeing a clip on how to use your corner punches to make decorative circles in all sizes ...i have used the Martha Stewart Wildflowers corner punch. I have to say i love the effect and quickly did a few using different punches ...one thing i would suggest, don't use grey cardstock as it is hard to see where you are punching as the inside of a punch is grey ☺

Products Used
Martha Stewart - Wildflowers Corner Punch
Maya Road - Pleated Ribbon, Mist
Prima - Flowers, Stencil
Making Memories - Patterned Paper
Beaded Trim, Seam Binding Ribbon, Dymo Tape

*I have smooched out the girls faces for their privacy.

Day 147/365 Photo

Tonight Wayne and I had a date night and we went to see The Hangover 2 Gold Class ... gotta love Gold Class ☺ so my photo for today is of the movie poster. We both loved the movie, it was a bit ruder than the first one, and they kept to the same format just a different country and who doesn't love spending a couple of hours with Bradley Cooper ☺

Day 142/365 Photo

Today B went to play Paintball for a friend's birthday celebration, so lucky me got to take him as Wayne did his back the day before at golf (convenient i say) I thought it won't be so bad as it will only go for about an hour ...big mistake 4 hours later!!! Anyway he had a great time and i had taken my kindle so i was all good sitting on a cold bench reading. We had a nice Mother Son day as i took B out for lunch afterwards and we also went to the Confectionery Warehouse ...so a good day.
Here is B all decked out in his camo gear with a bag full of paint balls ready for the second session.

B was very disappointed that he came away with no bruises or welts .... his friend had quite a few as did some of the other boys.

Day 128/365 Photo

Today was Mother's Day and after a very busy work week it was so nice to be able to stay in bed and have my darling Miss T bring me in scrambled eggs and coffee for breakfast, she also made breakfast for Nanny who had been staying here to look after the kids while i was away. Here is a photo of my gifts from Miss T all bought from the Mother's Day stall at school along with her lovely handmade card ♥
The shiny thing is actually has a poem on it which reads
Mum, you've been my strength
the rock on which I stand
and I've gained so much wisdom
guided by your gentle hand.

The kindness you have shown
in every word and deed
has been a blessing in my life
in so many times of need.

Happy Mother's Day to all
