Our new veggie patch is beginning to bloom with life!  Spring is springing, the tiny peach and apple trees are blossoming – it’s wonderful!  My dd took some photos in the afternoon sun, + I must say I am very proud of her efforts!

Isn’t she a clever trevor??!! ;]

I just had to boast about my latest culinary escapade!  Forgive me this indulgence…

 

My daughter’s school house held a fundraising cake + lolly stall this week, raising funds for World Vision, the upshot of this is I had the perfect excuse to abandon housework & have a play with a piping bag! 

 

 

What do you think?

 

DD’s house colour is lime green – hence the sticky labels I made in Word, printed onto inkjet label paper & punched out with my large circle punch, which happily fitted the circular depression in the lid perrrfectly!  The container is the dinner roll section of the takeaway soup & roll containers you see used in sandwich shops.  I sourced these from my local office supply shop – the lovely assistant & I made fools of ourselves, testing if these 2 parts would lock together without the soup part that normally goes with it…. & after failing, the lovely assistant said the magic words “try it the other way up”  Viola!!

The icing is done using a technique I found here, & hadn’t had a chance (=excuse!) to try out yet – it was sooo easy, but I do need to buy myself a  larger petal tip to get a better proportioned petal.

 

Ok, thus endeth the boasting!  It’s just so gratifying when you create & actually get a result you’re somewhat proud of, isn’t it??!!

I’ve been playing with a few of the Upsy Daisy Designs ranges, such lovely quality papers, and I think the Basic Alphas rub-ons are my new favourite Rub-ons!

 

This is my favourite project – a small photo frame converted to a 3D shadow box. 

I used the lovely UDD ‘Pretty Petals’ range & matching Rub-on sheet to create this tiny (5″x5″) piece of home decor.  I love sage greens, so it’s perfect for my home.

 

I’m in the process of creating an instructional podcast for this project, so check back soon for that!

Update:

It’s done! – check out my new instructional podcast for this project here.  I hope you enjoy it & are inspired to create something similar yourself {let me know if you do!}
