The sweet bird of happiness

Here is Julies wonderful Lo this month over at Scrap Jacked, & it is always hard to choose one to have a play with - they are always fab...and time does not allow more than one either...

So here is mine - which is really nothing like Julie's!  But still I adore this photo of dear Tashi & Crys, with little Harry in the foreground..full of life!

Thank you lovely Scrap jacked gals for another month of great LO's

My first Pavlova Roll...

Easter cooking with Madi, & we made a great team producing this lovely rolly Pav.  With whipped cream, strawberries & Ron's passionfruit...divine! 
It was slightly crisp on the outside, & so smooth & fluffy inside - & I think this is the way it should have been.  I will make another one later this week!

Free Spirit

Here is my card for this weeks Case Study #85.  

The inspiration is from Laurie Schmidlin, the card below & isn't this fabulous! What a lovely array of cards there is on show as usual!

I choose a lovely pink card as the base, from some 'throw outs' at Spotlight with a lovely collage of Paris, diecut, lace, crotchet flower & hat pin all from the Tattered Inspirations 'Parisiene Memories' kit...simply gorgeous goodies.
