. Today is our Anniversary and Hannah's birthday! Yes she was born on our anniversary! Soooooo to celebrate, we went to the Races (the 'Trots' as they are called here)!
It's a LOVELY warm evening tonight starting at 5pm and finished up by 8.30.
We had a table right next to the track just about 5mtrs from the finish line! Hannah came home with $30 in her pocket!! We know NOTHING about horse racing , but we had a VERY good night! (Poor old Paige was at rehearsals for 'Oliver' so couldnt come).
Here Hannah is with one of her 'winners'!! (We're a bit sea-breeze swept!!).
. MISSION CREATE #8
There's five criteria to choose from! (minimum 3) I managed four. Rubons, Paint and stitching and a curved title! Amy sent me these dandylion rubons in a rak a while ago and I love them! I really like doing criteria based challenges too....because they make you use 'stuff' that you might have tucked away!! .
. CREATIVE SCRAPPERS #86
This was a sketch that easily fell into place! You can check it out here
Yes weeeeell, it doesnt happen very often where I do a LO with me in it...cos I avoid it like the plague, however everynow and then I pluck up enough courage and do one (I have no idea why I'm like this!) then I quickly pack it away, not left out standing up for everyone to see. (whats with that!) Anyway, its what happens and weeeeell, its done for another generation!! LOL! .
TWISTED SKETCHES #32
I struggled with this one...not because of the sketch, because it was great, but because my 'visions' of what I 'could' do with it had to come alive on paper LOL and I can sometimes get myself in quite a pickle!
Eventually this came to pass and I became happy with it! I've used stamps with paint (my fav medium!!) You can find the sketch here
INSPIRATION SKETCHES #106
Here's another one I struggled with a bit too! But finally got there in the end. Look at how close my girls are. I'm so extremely blessed. You can find the sketch here
