Pre-paring for the Aussie Summer.

Well the weather has definitely changed here in the past few weeks. It is alot warmer and the sun is lovely. The front of our house gets full sun in the afternoon - which at the moment is blissful. But I can only imagine that in the summer it might be a bit much. Some people have said to me that even with air con in the summer we will notice the heat.

So we have invested in some shutters. This is what they look like when they are down. You can have them fully open or partly open if you want. They are designed with several things in mind - blocking out the heat, the cold, light, noise and also for security.

So now we are set for summer.

Kristina Werner's Colour Challenge # 23

Kristina Werner is running another Colour Challenge and I thought I would have a go. I have never done one of these before - but often look at them.

The colours are Bravo Burgundy, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie & So Saffron.
Not colours I would normally put together - but I like them.
I used the Heartfelt Thanks, Wonderful Words & Baroque Motifs Stamps Sets.

Stampin Up Regionals - Perth.

I'm buzzing....I had such a great time yesterday at the Stampin Up Regional Seminar.

I came home and looked over all the goodies I got – including a new Stamp set. I traded swaps with many other talented Demonstrator’s. The swaps I received in return are fantastic.

The presentations were great. They included some sneak peaks of a few things that are coming up, some great business tips from fellow demonstrators and some project demonstrations too.

The entire day was just spot on. We also got to create some lovely projects that used beautiful colours too.
Here's all the swaps I did. Used Bravo Burgundy & Bordering Blue and the Season of Joy Stamps set from the Spring Mini.

D D D D Da Dora... D D D D Da Dora....

Wow - what a great weekend....starting with D D D D D Da Dora Show on Friday!
Sarah and I went to see the Dora the Explorer - Pirate Adventure Show!! It's was great. We really enjoyed it. We went with Michelle (my new friend) and her daughter, Alyssa who is 3.

These pics are of Sarah in her Dora Clothes (given to her by Alyssa). And at the Convention Centre - Waiting to go in.

The first thing that happened was "The Map" came out (to sing) and Sarah cuddled right into me and started to cry! Oh no I thought!

Then the show really started - and Sarah loved it. She waved her flag (Pirate flags provided) and danced and interacted with what was going on in the show. Great. Loads of fun.

BUT - every time "The Map" came on stage - she cuddled quickly in and started to cry!

At the end of the show - while talking about it, I asked Sarah "What did you like best"? And in a big loud shout she yelled "The Map"?

These pics show Sarah & Alyssa at the show and playing with the Confetti after the show.
