I finished this ATC for the Stampers Hut swap which is always due at the end of the month. The theme this time is "Things that Fly" so I figured there would be lots of butterflies and birds and things, so I went with a "Flying Fish". The background is tissue paper sprayed with Sapphire and Spring Mint glimmer mists (I love those glimmer mists ... they're so easy to use).
A group of the scrapping / ATC girls went out to lunch today to celebrate Tanya's 32nd birthday. I was surprised at how many people turned up considering it is a work day ... it was so nice to get together with everyone, it's been ages since I've seen some of the girls.
L to R - Belynda, Kathryn, Kerri, Kyla, Tanya (in the black outfit), Pam, Jane, Lisa, Me (Diana bending), Sarah. Sarah's daughter Claire who's 5, took this photo, isn't she a clever little ducky.
Me and Tanya
You can always guarantee laughs when Kerri & Tanya get together.
I made Tanya an ATC for her birthday instead of a card ... I love receiving small personalised gifts like this and hopefully Tanya did too. The background is courtesy of Valerie Brincheck ... I just love having some ready made backgrounds lying around and the ones she created are beautiful. By the way ... Tanya loves owls, hence the theme.

I love the paper arts / crafts and trying out new techniques. I live with my beautiful husband and gorgeous dog in a surburb of Sydney, Australia. I work full-time so don't spend as much time creating as I'd like ... but life's pretty good all the same.
