My2Angels For Christmas

I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas and did plenty of over-indulging.

Better Late Than Never!

I know it's been a while but......

Have a couple of pics to share with you and a quick project as well.
The last couple of weeks has been so busy with end of year stuff, Christmas organising, kids school stuff etc. etc. but it was worth it.
On Monday we had the little kids final assembly for the year and we watched our little Princess Kiahna singing in the choir. Beautiful!
And of course we were there to clap very loudly for Brady as he received an award for Excellence In Literacy. Such a clever cookie!

I've spent lots of time kissing and cuddling my grandson Chay.
He is such a gorgeous little boy. Always has a smile for you and always laughing.

I have made quite a few Christmas presents in the last 2 weeks but I'm just not game enough to post them in case the recipients decide to have a sticky

I will share this project that was for my Daughter's 8th Birthday party. Kiahna wanted to have a craft party so I pre-cut all the pieces for these cute little handbags and then they assembled and decorated them by themselves. While they were having cake etc. I filled their handbags up with some party treats and they took them home.
The template is courtesy of Mel (Mel Stampz) check out her awesome blog here and the template can be downloaded here.

Here was my example ones.

And here's the ones all the girls did.

Bazzill Swiss Dots : Spellbinders - Sunflower Set 2 : Basic Grey - Chipboard Alpha : Glitter (lots and lots of glitter!) : Assorted Gems : Kindy Glitz

I also made some gorgeous presents for the kids Teachers and forgot to take a photo before they got handed out. Bugger!

I will save the pics of all the Christmas stuff until the presents have been sent and

All I Want For Christmas....

Yesterday I had the chance to finish off a layout that had been patiently waiting for me!
This is my take on the December Challenge over at
Scrap The Girls.
This one really had me thinking.
Loved it!
The details of the challenge were:

J - Jewels / Bling
O - Orange PP or Cardstock

Y - Yellow Embellishment

You also had to use the lyrics of a Christmas Carol as your title. This is where I bent the rules
I have a big collection of Chr
istmas music. Everything from Frank Sinatra to Wham, Elvis to Hi5 and everything in between. This song, "All I Want For Christmas Is You" (best sung by Mariah Carey) is one of my absolute favourites, so I just had to use it.
