Weekend Creativity



Yesterday I went to a Stampin Up charity event where we created 3 cards/projects. It raised $900 for the Southland Hospital Intensive Care Baby unit! Some of the ladies had been working on some card organisers in their monthly classes so I wandered around the internet and found instructions which I used to make the above using some of the older October Afternoon Paper collections (too busy just looking at the new ones I got this week from Scrapbook Outlet)...did a couple of things my way (of course) and would do some things differently next time but can see many ways to use the ideas in this project for other things!

I have been keen to do something with paint so last night got out my paints, glitter and buttons and created a wall canvas...at the moment it's up in the lounge while we decide where it should reside. Fun.


smiles, Lara.

Very cool canvas, you are welcome to give it to me for my retreat prize, lol.
Love the card organiser too, I would do that as a class at the retreat. a) cos I'm too lazy to search the internet and b) I love what you do - ok a stalker would say that but I mean it, lol.

You know who!!!!
