Frosted Designs sketch challenge #4

How quickly the weeks are flying by!  I have noticed Christmas thing in all our local shops! I vow that I am going to be organised this year and not do the last minute thing that I am famous for!
Frosted Designs Sketch Challenge #4 is up and this is the gorgeous sketch designed by Debbie Burns is perfect for any project.  I just love the circle and you can interpret in so many ways.  Stitching, faux stitching, nestabilities.... the possibilities are endless!

I am loving the easel card and I thought it was a prefect opportunity to use my transparency and with the spooky Halloween witch from Paper Pretties is perfect. 

my NEW FAVOURITE thing is this fence from PTI I absolutely LOVE it!!
 MFT also have one which is a bit smaller and longer but just as GORGEOUS
(might buy both!) thanks Sue for the lend.....


Thank you to for sponsoring our card challenge this time and go and see the rest what the rest of the DT has come up with, I'm sure you will will be inspired!

Well Thank Goodness THAT month is over!!!

September is SUCH a busy (an expensive) month for us..... the three boys are the 7th, 17th and 27th and I have to be super organised and have things bought and wrapped way before otherwise it really wipes me out financially! It is especially hard these days as they want clothes and God forbid I pick them...... so now I squirrel money away and I set a limit (always go over it though!)

My baby, Patrick turned 14

Lachlan turned 16

Aden turned 19


Gone are the days when I made their cakes..... No one wants my cakes anymore :(
the caramel cheesecake is the flavor of the year.

Don't you just LOVE instagram!!!!


and then my 21st yesterday....... Yes Aden thought it would be funny if my cake had Happy 21st! Angela!  seeing as I always told them I was 21 when they were younger!!
I went out for lunch and dinner yesterday and ate way too much.....
I went to big W to get some photos printed for a retreat I am going on soon and centre stage are CHRISTMAS TREES!!! what the!! let me have my freaking birthday before we start on the Christmas thing!!!

Going to pick Lachlan up soon, he has been away on a school trip to the Northern Territory.  Cannot wait to see him, two weeks is a long time!

Don't think I'd hold one of these.....even with its mouth taped......


sorry no craft this post....
soon ! xx
