The Lucky Last!

Oh my gosh… talk about being on auto pilot… I’ve been awake since 3.30 this morning so now I keep falling asleep as I sit here attempting to write this so goodness knows if I’m going to make any sense but here ’tis, my last three colours on the Colour Renovation Chart.

Actually here are six of the retiring colours and DSP’s that I’ve used for Term 3’s thank you gifts for the teachers and the lovely ladies at the school office as I like them to know how much I appreciate their hard work each term. Beside the colours I’m highlighting below I’ve also used Barely Banana, Really Rust and Apricot Appeal.

These came about as I really wanted to make some notelets with the Big Shot Scallop Circle Die Cut but to simply put them into a box didn’t seem right so I made up a template of a hand-bag that would hold them. I made four notelets for each bag – two each of two designs. (And I’ve used one of the new punches from the 2010-2011 catty – can you spot it?)

Okay… here is  Fond Farewell to Colour #28 – Blush Blossom.

Here is a Fond Farewell to Colour #29 – Pale Plum.

Here is a Fond Farewell to Colour #30 – Orchid Opulence.

I’m really happy with how they turned out but I’ve dozed off so many times now I’m signing off as the alarm is already set for 4.30am as I need to make a dozen or two cupcakes before school tomorrow. Yes, seemed like a really good idea last week when I planned to make them then and there then put them into the freezer so I would be organised. As I’ve said before, just call me FOGI!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

What a day!!!

Today was Under 8’s Day at our school with loads of activities taking place this morning on the oval that parents and carers alike were invited to attend. To cut a long story short, and with Miss Six having won the toss for which child I should be with, we were finally on the oval, amongst all the celebrations.

We headed to the police display as this was were all the noise was coming from. Miss Six was rather chuffed with sitting in the paddy wagon, riding on the BMW, and even singing into the Highway Patrol car’s loudspeaker but mummy, oh mummy was very excited. Why? Because I had the thrill of wearing a flap jacket!

Yes I know, you’re yawning but let me tell you, I was EXCITED – and I still am! For whatever reason I’ve always found the donning of the flap jacket the ultimate. No I couldn’t tell  you why I’ve always secretly harboured this desire but for whatever reason I have and today I fulfilled this little dream. I think it’s time for the dance (and if you’ve never watched Evan Almighty you’ll have absolutely no idea what I’m on about…)!

But as you know, nothing ever goes to plan so all this took much longer then planned hence not much of my “to-do” list was accomplished today which is more then a tad annoying. However, I did get a good head-start on Girl Child’s birthday present. I had briefly thought, as I raced out the door hoping to get to the Post Office before my 4.45pm appointment, that I would have the children in bed early tonight thus I would be able to come down to the studio to complete it tonight. Therefore being on track for tomorrow but that was obviously the two pots of coffee I’d consumed talking as I’m ready for bed NOW yet I hear the children still going strong in their bedrooms ;(

One thing I did achieve was the completion of a card I put together on Monday. It was layout that had caught my eye by the very talented Sharlene Meyer of Magpie Creates. Sharlene had found it in our Autumn-Winter Mini Catty and tweaked it to her liking so I thought, why not, I have the Medallion background on order so I may just have a “tweak” myself… and I did!

This is the end result in one of my favourite colours that sadly is retiring in just a few short months, the Pumpkin. Not my usual style but I’m impressed with the end result, very crisp and clean!


Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!
