Good Morning all …. well today is going to be a big day – My oldest has her first day of High School so no doubt that will be a whole new adventure for all of us! Miss 10 starts 5th Grade – and mum has a day all to herself!!

I want to thank everyone who managed to survive the Saleabration Blog Hop on Monday – it was huge and we had so many new visitor and comments. Now you can still do the blog hop to be in the running for the Blog Candy as this closes on Friday. You can start here and will need to leave a comment on each blog then email me to advise you finished and I will put your name into the draw for the Blog Candy. Now be prepared as there are 41 blogs involved so you’d better go get a cuppa and some bikkies! I promise next time it wont be so big!

I have set a colour challenge to all the girls on ESAD and thought I’d share it with you too in case you wanted to join in.

Make a card, 3d item or scrap page using the following colours ….

Here is my card for the challenge ….

It’s actually a case of a card that the gorgeous Shelli Gardner (Stampin Up! CEO) demonstrated at Leadership recently in USA. I’ve used the lovely new “I {heart} Hearts” stamp set – this is also the set to purchase help raise funds for the Haiti Disaster Relief fund.  I love this set – it coordinates so well with the Stampin’ Up! heart punches.

Now if youre playing once your item is finished upload your project to your blog or online gallery like flickr or photobucket then come back to this post and leave a comment with the link to your project to be in the running for the prize. I should have known the first time I use Mr LInky it would go MIA – I cant even get their site to load so my apologies for that.

You have until 31st January to create and upload your item and I will announce a winner – the lucky winner will receive a small prize in the mail.


  1. I really like that colour combination and the card you made with those colours too. Soooo, how did the first day at high school go? Did she love it – all those new teachers and subjects etc. etc.? I hope Emily had a lovely day in year five too and a really nice teacher as well. Now you’ll know you’re alive – high school!!!

  2. What a beautiful and fresh card Leonie. Shelli is a v v clever cookie, but u my lovely are right up there. I love this colour combo…may have to give it a burl myself.
    Hope that Everyone survives the first day back at school. It’s so nice to to breathe your own air!! (selfish I know….but if u can’t be indulgent occasionally 😉 )
