It's BABY TIME....

Oh No Not Me..........

My cousin Michael and his lovely wife, Tammy, are expecting their first child in December, so I was thrilled when Tammy asked me to make the invitations. I had lots of help making the 50 invites she needed. Tammy, Aunty Wilma, Karlee and Allanna and I made them all in a few hours.
What a huge effort......It was like taking a class....but the pattern and sample where in my head...lol
It is a classic baby-jump suit pattern that i cased off Splitcoaststampers ages ago, but it looks so cute. They know they are expecting a boy so that made it extra easy.

Now I have 50 thank-you cards to make and then the present....Thats a big surprise for Tammy, but I will share it with you people a little closer to the day.

Cardstock and inks: White,Bashful Blue and Barely Banana, watercolour paper and stazon ink
Stamp: Bundle of Joy
Tools: Polka dot emboss folder, 1 1/4" punch, 1 3/8" punch, 1/4" punch, aquapainter, black marker
Accessories: brads, dimensionals

Happy Stamping

Love Suzie xoxo

HALLOWEEN FUN

Karlee the vampire and some gruesome friends, Joshua(zombie) and Scott(scream)


Little devil Allanna and Beetlejuice Aaron

This is me, Suzanne, the hillbilly and my sisters Leisa and Lynda as glamorous angel and witch. Check out my Billy Bob teeth. I had trouble talking and keeping them in all night....but it was great fun handing out the lolly bags. I told the kids they would get teeth like mine if they ate too many lollies...LOL


WOW...........we can't wait till next year. Halloween was great fun this year. We had a party at my sister Lynda's house and gave out lolly bags to the Trick or Treaters. We all got dressed up and decorated the front yard to make it extra fun.
We had about 200 Trick or Treaters. We only made 180 lolly bags so I guess we will have to make alot more next year.


It's hard to wait another 365 days........

I'll try to be back tomorrow with some stamping.

You Have To Try It Once

This has to come under that heading....YOU HAVE TO TRY IT ONCE.

So we did.......

Halloween is starting to be very popular in Australia and we wanted to have a go at Pumpkin Carving. Karlee looked up on the internet to find all the tips and tricks on how to carve them and bought a few patterns....Of course, Karlee did the middle face below as her first one and then moved on to the intricate skull with top hat.......Allanna, Aaron and I did one each.
So what do you think about our first go at Pumpkin Carving....Pretty good hey.
They were a big hit at my sisters Halloween Party and all the Trick or Treaters loved them too.





These are the pictures when they had the tea-light candles turned on in the dark.
Wait till next year....It was so much FUN.
