In paradise...seriously it's soooooo gorgeous here !!
Today we went to the island of what a beautiful place !!! The sun was shining, the temp was 75 and we sat on the sidewalk in a lovely little cafe enjoying a rather mahoosive banana nut muffin.... Sorry, but we'd devoured it then realised we hadn't taken a photo LOL. !!
Then we took a stroll on the beach, it was a bit crowded ....
Ricky's showing off his camera skills. Eat your heart out Kirsty LOL !!!
Then we done a bit of rock pooling, this took us both back to childhood memories, unfortunately we only found one little, and I emphasise the word little, hermit crab !!! But I did get this shot....hope you appreciate it, it only took about 15mins to get the right wave, poor ruck nearly fell asleep :) :)
Now we know a post from the States isn't complete without another foodie shot, and this one was taken in Phil's B B Q. It was served on a 32" tray...yes I said 32" !!! And filled with ribs, chicken, fries and fresh coleslaw....actually the coleslaw was the best, but don't tell Phil that !!!
It's now T minus 4 days to CHA, so soon I'll stop boring you with landscapes etc and filling these pages with crafting goodness.

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
