Oooops

I haven't blogged for soooooo long, and it isn't because I haven't got anything to say, or that I am not scrapping, I have just seemed, I don't know, too ummmmmm, uninspired blog wise????
Lots and lots has happened since my last post, we went through a cyclone here in Mackay, we had a lovely Easter just chilling round the house, not doing much at all - I'll post some Easter photos another time. Connor and I went away to Bundaberg to visit Mum and Dad - and again I'll post those another time....
Today, we had a lovely time..... we went to Airlie Beach for lunch. I have to say that they have done a terrific job of tidying up since Ului crossed there - it is fantastic as always....
We went to a place called Capers - and it is wonderful, the food is so fresh as they source it all from local suppiers.... Just yummo!!

This was the view from our table - magnificent!!

My meal - 1/2 a Chilli Mud Crab and Jasmine Rice.


Mark's meal - 1/2 kilo prawns with Aioli Cream, Salad and Chips....
Connor, of course, had fish and chips - LOL!!


I have been scrapping too - this is the my sample for the new Kraft It Up Challenge.

The Challenge is to do a Monochromatic Layout - Kraft Base, of course, and the only colour you CAN'T use is BROWN.....
Here is a close up of the embellie cluster.....

Over at Addicted to Craft, there is a new DT Sketch Challenge. We were given some gorgeous Prima Mulberry paper, and an Anam Stubbington Sketch. It is amazing how we've all come up with such different layouts - go and check it out, and while you are there, give the Sketch a whirl, too - it is a wonderful sketch!
Here is my Layout..... Isn't the paper just too divine for words??? I love Prima stitched Mulberry Paper - the textures, the colours, the images..... booootiful!!!!
Here are a couple of close ups - for those gold leaf swirls, I used the Prima Leaf Swirl Stamp, and embossed the image in gold.... the idea was to have little flashes of gold to blend with the luscious paper, also the gorgeous gold Prima flower centres.... Ooooooh, I had such fun with this!!!

Oh, well, that's it from me for now -I'll come back later with more shares, promise....

Thanks for visiting!!
