Photo Frame

Last year I made The Magic of Oz clock & the 12 x 12 clock. With this clock you get templates for each block, so I decided to use the templates to make this frame.

6-o-saurus

6-o-saurus
For this layout I used Simple Stories Happy Daydouble sided papers, journaling tabs & card-stock stickers. All these products are now less 50% at www.shoestringscrapbooking.co.za


I wanted to have a birthday party at home for Kruz, but that's not what he wanted!! He wanted to have his party at school. So on Thursday morning we set up at school and as soon as we handed out the cake & party packs he wanted to go home??  The party was all of half an hour & he was go grateful for everything!! I found this rather strange & for some reason I don't think he wanted any of his friends to come to the house!!!

2nd Liebster Blog Award

Jeaunes has awarded me with my 2nd Liebster blog award. :) You can visit her blog here to see who else she has awarded....


Liebster_blog


This is what the Liebster Award represents:

"Liebster" is a German word meaning dearest, beloved or favourite, and the Liebster Award is sort of a chain letter among bloggers that is intended to showcase exceptional up-and-coming blogs (typically, those with 200 or fewer followers).  There is no evaluation committee or formal award process for the Liebster Award, but in a way it is even nicer.  It is recognition that a peer has noticed and appreciated your work.  


Here are the rules:

Choose 5 up-and-coming blogs of fewer than 200 followers to award the Liebster Award to.  Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.  Post the award on your blog.  Link it back to the blogs you have given the Liebster Award to, so everyone else can pay them a visit.


 


Here are my Liebster Blog Award Nominees:


- Michelle van Wyk Homespun Scrapbooking


- Amanda Amanda's Craft Space


- Debbie Harris DKH Designs


- Valerieann Val-Belle's Ramblings


- Hanlie Just Me Scrapping Away  


So these are my 5 picks for the award... These are very talented ladies, so please go check out their blogs to see for yourself & remember to support them by becoming  a follower.
