It's A Jungle Out There....

Well at least today it was, LOL.
We celebrated Molly's birthday today at a fantastic indoor playground called Jungle Gym.
She invited 15 friends & they all had a ball running around & swinging on ropes etc, just like little wild animals.
After a good feed & some birthday cake, the kids were well & truly worn out, not to mention me.
This is a pic of Molly's birthday cake.

I decided to go with the jungle theme & made her a monkey cake.
This is a pic of the venue. Kids just love this place. There's so much to do & is lots of fun.

I've been very quiet on the creating side of things lately.
I am working on a mini album but have spent a lot of time planning the party & doing work on the house.
The weather has been shocking this week. A big storm came through on Thursday & we lost power for 14 hours. Luckily we didn't have any damage although many others were not so lucky.
I really can't find anything to like about Winter. I dislike the cold & the rain so much that it makes me quite grumpy. Oh well, only 6 months to go & it will be warm again, LOL.
I hope everyone is well & happy.
Thanks for stopping by & I hope to have something new to share soon :)

I Was Beaten....

Chloe & I spent the weekend celebrating National Scrapbooking Day in our own little way
We sat around the table making cards & Chloe was an absolute machine!!!!
She ended up beating me by making 10 GORGEOUS cards but I only managed 7...well 5 that I'm happy with.

These are my cards.

I really fell in love with the colours & patterns of the new Basic Grey "Lime Rickey" range
These are all made with just the papers & diecut sheet plus rubons & buttons.

I hope you all enjoyed the weekend & hopefully got to do some scrapping.
Did any off you take part in the Cuttlebug Challenges Spa Weekend?
We did, though I must say the blog hop was exhausting for my poor little fingers.
It was lots of fun though & there was certainly lots of inspiration too

Bye for now :)

Card Patterns #12

This is my card inspired by this week's Card Patterns sketch.

I cut the flowers on my Cricut & the paper is MME.

I made this card last night for the lovely teacher who was Molly's kindy teacher. Such a truly sweet person.
She told me yesterday that she became a Grandma 3 weeks ago, & I know how exciting that is so I thought it would be nice to celebrate her new status.

I think you can tell by the card that she got a Grand Daughter, LOL.
These are MME papers again with some Prima flowers sprinkled with a little glitter.

Have a fantastic weekend everyone :)
