Christchurch Earthquake

Yesterday just before 1 Pm Christchurch suffered another horrific earthquake with devastating results. Buildings are destroyed, with people trapped inside them the place looks like a war zone.

I am still in shock about the Christchurch earthquake,I feel some how wrong to be going on with my day when my family and friends are going though some of the worst times of there lives.

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Christchurch and the people that have lost someone in this tragic disaster.

Happy Birthday Alex!!

Okay so I was meant to post all this last night but after such a busy day I was just stuffed and my brain went a bit la-la.

Yesterday was my Mr Alex's 4th birthday and this year instead of buying a bunch of toy that will just end up in the pile with all the others we took him to the movies! He LOVED it, got a bit broad towards the end but he is only 4 and well that is to be expected. We also got him a couple of little toys and a new bag for day care to but it was the movie that really stole the day.

BTW Nomeo and Juliet is way better than I thought it was going to be

And of course the Ben 10 cake, now I'm not the best cake person in the word but rather pleased with how this one turned out.

thanks for looking :)

February Challenges At Better Scrapbooking.

February Online Challenges

Layout challenge - Back to School

All our children are starting or started back at school this week. What a fantastic excuse for a layout. Take a photo of your child/ren in their school uniforms and school bags outside of their school (how embarrassing, but it's for scrapbooking so it's ok) and create a layout. If you children really object what about a layout of you back in your school days. Have fun with this.

Photo Challenge - Natural Frames

Take a photo with the subjects framed by something, like a child in a field framed by the long grass. Here a chance to get creative with your camera.

Project Challenge - Valentines Day Gift

Yes Valentine's Day is coming up, why not make something for someone you care about. Take a photo and upload it for this challenge.

Card Challenge - A card to cheer someone up.

Make a card that you think would cheer up someone. Then take a photo and upload it. Then give it to someone you think needs cheering up (pick me, pick me, just kidding)

Upload photos of your challenge to the online gallery before the end of February to go into the draw for a RAK prize from Better Scrapbooking.

Altered Mirror

So it was 3rd time lucky! A few weeks ago we took this old ugly cabinet down from out of the bathroom, and it just sat in the shed. So while getting stuff out of the freezer for dinner the other week I saw it again and thought to myself, “oh I know what I can do with that!” So forgotten was dinner and I went to work with the screwdriver. I took the front of and quickly took it out to my shed to start working on it later that night. Only to be met with great disappointment, It wasn't working and looking how I wanted it to, so it got pushed aside for another day. Then about a week after that the same thing I got it out again ready to make it look beautiful and again disappointment, I was starting to think it was a lost cause and would never work, but 3rd time lucky it worked!!!

I had originally cut the carriage and title for a scrap booking page, but wasn't liking it so thought well why not use it on the mirror and, well there you go!!

And sorry about the pics too, while making this I didn't really anticipate how hard it would be to

Edit to add, I used the silhouette to cut the title and carriage.
