The count day is on

and it is only a few days now till I am on a plane to Cairns. My scrappy stuff is packed and some of my clothes as well.

It has been a quiet week out here all expect for Friday that is, my birthday.

Craig and Asher got me a small camera that I can pop into my bag so I don't have to take my big one away with me. I got some money from my in laws, scrappy goodies and a cookbook from friends and my parents parted with some of their quantas frequent flyer points a while back for my flight to QLD as my pressie.

My friend Jane and I head out to the craft fair on the train. It was mainly quilting and beading stalls but I did manage to pick up some stamps, a few copics and an embossing folder.

Then that night I went of to a local for a crop. When the girls at Just scrapbooking found out it was my birthday on the night of one of their Friday crops they made sure I was there. Not that I needed to be pushed very much. Getting some of Carols pineapple cheesecake was enough to get me there.

I managed to do up a card and a tag on the night, although it was tough with all the laughs. I nearly had coffee splatters over my work several times.

You make me smile card

I have done this one up for a Copic card challenge being run by Copic Australia. You can check out all the details here.

We needed to use the first three colours on our project.

Shoes, dress trim and cheeks-E02

I also played around with making a tag to wear at the retreat next weekend.

Although ti hasn't stayed that way. It has been added too some more since I took this photo but I will share that once the retreat is over as I don't want the girls to see the finished project yet.

The gallery went up over at Lime Tarts durring the week too. Here is a favorite project of mine.

I scrapnapped my friend Lou's cheeky little girl Lucy.

Well that is all from me for now.
Till next time, which we be on the Tuesday when I get back home thanks for popping back in, any comments and happy scrapping.
