It's our excuse to dress up for Halloween......we love the dress up thing.

I know we needed rain but enough is enough for South East Queensland...Our dams are full and the ground is soggy. Our family Landscape supply business now needs lots of sunny days to keep us busy, busy, busy. These wet days brings everything to a halt.

Another Birthday.....

WOW!!!!!! Time is flying by.... Another one is turning 18.

My darling niece Kaila (my brother Geoff's daughter) is turning 18 this week. Thought I would share the "Kaisercraft" 18 Book that I have decorated for her.
I know she will be thrilled because it is in her favourite colours - pink and black, just like her little Suzuki Swift car.

Turned out sassy and cute just like Kaila.

Pumpkin Box

Just thought I would share this one too....I didn't have a blogspot last year..........
This is the Pumpkin Box from a Splitcoaststampers tutorial I made for the kids. You can find the instructions in the resources at Splitcoaststampers.
The cool Halloween die cuts are from the Slice Machine, my cousin Colleen has one, and she cut all these out for me. I filled it up with toys and chocolates. They loved them.

A Halloween Case....

Mummy Box

Papercrafters are the most creative people I know. After googling the words TOP NOTE DIE, I came across some fantastic Halloween boxes using the Stampin'Up Top Note Die and Fancy Favour Box.
So I was on the CASE......LOL
A few punches and a bit of ink later and they are complete. These were super easy and sooo much fun. My friends have been making some ready for Halloween. I know we don't really celebrate this in Australia but it's getting more popular here. For the last few years I have had Trick or Treaters knocking on my door. It's great to have a special gift for them.
