Late news...and it's exciting!

It's official...Riley has made the Western Australia team to compete at the Trampolining National Age Championships...WOOOHOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Exciting times in our house tonight!

While I'm here I thought you might like to see my LO from today...

I really love these photos, taken back in 1999...sounds like such a long time ago :(

I was waiting for my crackle to dry so that I could apply the top coat, and crackle it did! These little birds and the tree branch are made by Collections here in WA.

The eyes are black Kaiser Pearls. Paper is Earth Love by Cosmo Cricket...not my usual colours, but the snail strip reminded me of life in Mount George :)

It didn't feel complete without some machine stitching. Once again, I've traced a Making Memories journal block to create the shaped part....I've actually cut out a cardboard template now, because I use these quite often.
That's now 12 LOs about Riley completed...and I am having pink withdrawals LOL!
