The following pics are of a little album that I have created about a handbag I bought. I was very lucky to be given this album from Coco when I went to visit the other weekend. Coco found it and thought that it would be perfect to create an album about my red bag. What a great idea! Thank you. I had started thinking about what I could do before I even got home!!!
For those who may not be sure what I'm on about........... called into the shop one day & the girls had all been for a bit of a shop. Attwoods had a sale on their boots. Some of us hadn't been to look yet, so off some of us went again. I didn't really want boots, so I just browsed around the shop to see what else was there. Well...... there it was............... this beautiful little red bag!!!! It even had it's own BLING!!!!! I thought about it & decided... no I better not. But I kept going back to it and after (not much) encouragement from the girls... I bought it !!! EVERYONE has commented on it & loved it and wanted it!!! So when Coco saw this album, she thought it would be good to document 'My Little Red Bag'. So here it is in all it's glory. I hope that you like it Coco!!!???? I certainly enjoyed making it & I often had a chuckle remembering that day. Thanks girls & thanks Coco.

My first commissioned Canvas!!

Hi bloggers & thanx for checking in on my blog.
Below is my very first commissiones canvas. I created one very similar to this as my first ever try at making a canvas. It has been on display in Scrap 'n' Patch (thank you Tan). One of her customer's asked me if I could do one just like that for her to buy. So here it is. complete. I hope that she likes it!!!!! I've used the same colours and style although it is not exactly the same!! But they never are meant to be..... are they???
So I thought that I would blog it for all to see. Enjoy.

Pigs really CAN fly!!!

Hi to all you bloggers & friends out there!
We ventured out to the Lucindale Field Days with friends today. It was a beautiful morning and we arrived about 9.30 am. We found where we needed to go first (Helen helping out in shed for Fashion Parade) and then started our walking & looking with a little bit of buying included.
We ended up back at the shed in the end watching the end of the fashion parade and then decided to have some lunch.
After having a nice lunch we ventured straight to the 'Strawberries & Cream' van for some scrummy strawberries!!!!! MMMmmmmmmmmmm We had a good look around & I really enjoyed the Lions Pavillion filled with lots of crafts & allsorts!! We got to this small gathering to watch the amazing 'Racing & Diving PIGS'.
This one was so cute but I wasn't in a good position to get a shoot of her head!!
These are the four racing pigs just about to head off!!

One of the diving pigs!!! She was gorgeous!!! She runs up the ramp and then steadies & settles herself & then dives!!!

This little darling just ran straight up & straight off without any hesitation at all!!

Getting a well deserved treat!! They were just so cute and really amazing. After diving in the water, they didn't take very long to dry today either!!
Helen needed to head back to the shed then to help out with Fashion Parade 'part two', so we continued looking around. After awhile we had had enough, so decided to head to the shed for a much needed rest. We found a good seat near some good air and really enjoyed a fun parade. The littlies were just so cute and then we were treated to a strip show from the CFS guys!! Thank goodness they stopped at only taking off their shirts!! hee hee Ahhhhhh it was all a bit of good fun!!
It was a great day & we enjoyed all that we did and saw.
Hope all is well with everyone & thanks for checking in.
luv me xxooxx

Swan Hill.

This is the 'Leahy Family'. David, Tom with Essie, Christina and teddy. This pic was taken on my last day at their beautiful home on my long weekend visit. We had a wonderful time altogether enjoying a few bottles of bubbly - (or was that more!! hee hee or should that be - hic hic!!!)
We also went out for tea, shopped, talked, chilled in our jammies and did a bit of play with techniques for cards!! It was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good to see Christina & family to spend some time with them checking out their new place of abode.

This is a pic of the front of their home. They live in a very new developing area of Swan Hill, which is lovely. This is the entrance to their street and will look great when more water can get to flow through!!

Christina looking absolutely fabulous!!!! Isn't she just a gorgeous woman!!! This is when we blinged up to go out for tea at the local Italian Resturant. It was very yummy!!!

These are 'THE RED SHOES'. I won't need to say anymore as you'll hear ALL about them from Coco!!!! hee hee hee But aren't they just soooooooooooooo.................................COCO!!!!

Thank you for making feel so welcome and so at home Christina, David, Tom and Essie!! I appreciate you letting me come on over and check out your new town..... opps... sorry - RURAL CITY!!! I hope that you had as much fun as I did. It was nice to chill out and just be together. Can't wait 'til next visit already.
I love ya and miss ya!!!

Well this is just a quick note to let everyone know that I'm off to visit Christina this long weekend.
If there is anything anyone would like me to take over, I'm more than willing to take it. If there is anyone wishing me to pass on a message, I'd be more than happy to do that too!!!!
I'll be leaving after work on Friday, about 3pm ish.

Look what I got!!

Hi to all you beautiful people out there in blog land!!
This is a gorgeous little manikin I found in our local bargain store!! I couldn't believe it when I saw it. I just HAD to buy it!!!! I knew she would look a treat in my new scrap room. This is quite a large metal key I found. I thought this would add to my displays in 'my room'. hee hee

I found this artist's easel too. Not that I'm an artist but thought it would be very handy for when I'm working on MY canvases!!

Thanks for checking in.
Bye for now.
luv me xxooxx
