Christmas Decorations

This was one of the projects at my last class of term 3.  I didn't get time to do any posting before we went away so trying to do a bit of catch up.
This card and gift tag uses the gorgeous Delightful Decorations set.  The colours are Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke.  The words are from Teeny Tiny Sentiments and we used the Lots of Tags for the Big Shot and the Ornament Punch.

I also used the new Scallop Trim border for the inside.  I haven't been a real fan of Always Artichoke but I think it goes really well with my new favourite, Cherry Cobbler.

Off to (Sunny?) Qld

Our whole family is off to supposedly sunny Qld today for 2 weeks.  I have been looking forward to this break for awhile now so hoping that the weather picks up. 
We are going to the theme parks and Australia Zoo and generally for a bit of a look around.  This will be our first road trip with all the kids for quite a while so it will be interesting how many times teenagers can ask "are we there yet"?
I have a few girlfriends on speed dial to pick me up from the airport if it all gets too much (ha,ha).
I won't be posting for a few weeks but will be checking emails every so often so if you have any queries shoot me off an email and I will repsond when possible.
Classes will begin back the second week of school term so the first being Tuesday 19th October.  I am looking forward to getting back into classes but I have been enjoying my holiday so far.
I knew it was time for a holiday when I was sitting on my lounge having breakfast last Tuesday and the delivery man, that I normally pounce on, arrived with a brown box and slid it onto my verandah.  Not only didn't I pounce on him but I also sat and finshed my breakfast before I bothered to get up and bring the box in.  Now that is a definate sign that I was ready for a break.
I hope everyone enjoys the school holidays and I look forward to catching up with you in a couple of weeks.
