Opposite's Attract!

Good morning! Day two of school here, and I am so excited! I am so happy to be back to work!
Well this is my second post of the day, and this time I am bringing you the fun new challenge from
Fab'n'Funky. This week Alli has challenged us to use the opposite colours on the colour wheel. So for those of you not familiar with the colour wheel here are the three most common combo of opposites RED/GREEN -  BLUE/ORANGE - YELLOW/PURPLE.
I  have taken a little bit of liberty with my interpretation, I went with pink (a shade of the red family) and green. You see this is a sneak peak at my calendar album, and this is the page for the month of May. I did not want it to look like a Christmassy page.
Here is the page open, the flap with Elphie the elephant(from Stampart)  closes and there you will find a calendar page with the month written in stickers. (not quite done yet).

I have popped Elphie up on pop dots and am using her as an anchor for some tags or maybe for some photos. Here is a close up of the flap and the stamp. 
Well I hope you like it. Hopefully I will be able to give a full view of the album soon.
Don't forget to head on over to Fab'n'Funky and show us your wonderful creations using opposites! We truly do love to see them.
Have a great day!


Crafter's Cafe No DP

Good day everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful day! It feels so good to be back at work. How I missed little munchkins!

Well onto this weeks challenge, over at Crafter's Café, This week are being asked to not use any Designer papers. That's right Cardstock only. You can emboss, ink, paint..... you can do all sorts of things to decorate your CS!

I have used an embossing folder on the background and stamped some flourishes as well. I then used my Cuttlebug to cut and emboss the image. (image from Fred She Said)

Hope you like it!

Have a great day! And don't forget to leave us link to your creation over at Crafter's Café!

As summer comes to an end........

I am preparing for the new school year. All the kids bags are packed, as is mine. The lunch boxes are on the counter ready to be packed and Tuesday's supper is ready for the crock pot in the morning, (I think my Crock Pot has had some abandonment issues over the summer! LOL) I am so excited!!!!!

I thought I would give you quick run down of some of our activities from this summer.

Well this summer we were able to go away for a week to beautiful cottage. Our neighbor let us have it for the week. Man I loved it and could so easily live the cottage life. The stars were beautiful at night, and the lake so quiet. We heard loons crying in the morning, went boating and canoeing. Anize lived in the water for entire week we were there.

I also learned that I was the best in family at both Ping-Pong and Darts! Here are the photos to prove it! (Well at least in darts ;o) )
 Yeah that's right what you see here is a bull's eye and then I got a double and triple 20!! Apparently some of the hardest shots to make! Jeff kept trying to beat me all week, but hey what can I say, when you got it you got, ..................and he didn't! Tee-Hee!

After the cottage, we started to prepare for Anize's birthday. This year my baby turned 10! She wanted a beach party this year. So we packed her and three of her friends into the van and drove up to the 19th concession in Lafontaine and spent the day at the beach! The girls had a blast!
We then came home and surprised her with a beach themed cake. (I wouldn't let her into the kitchen all day while I made it!)

Anize has been asking for an I-pod for over a year, well this year she was super excited and surprised when she got her very own! Here she is on her actual birthday just after she opened it!

Well I hope you all had a wonderful summer! We sure did!
