Twist Me And Turn Me

This morning saw my first post over on the Polka Dot Whimsy blog
Wednesday is the day for a ‘something inspiring’ post
And I made this page, inspired by leftovers from the gorgeous City Life kit 


You can read more on my page here

and here are some close ups on the gorgeous leftovers Smile






Oh and I wanted to show you how easy it is to make those small painted circles
All you need is a tube of your favourite paint
See the lid??

Just run a little paint around it and start stamping Smile
and you can do it without making a mess
Just press a little paint out of the tube, so it just sits around the opening
Then run the lid over the paint, so the whole circle is covered.
I love easy Smile
The girls did some crafting yesterday too
Megan worked on her “Wreck This Journal


Jessica and Lucy made masks (inspired by Jessica’s “This is not a book”)


Elizabeth has been having her ‘holiday’ at Poppy’s house and is home again tomorrow Smile

Can’t wait for the gallery to be updated at Polka Dot Whimsy so I can show you what I created with the January kit
Also if you have seen all the footage on the Queensland/New South Wales than you are probably feeling like me
Well, there are a few things that you can do
* Many Silent Auctions are happening through Your Creative Journey Silent Auction for QLD Flood Victims on facebook, with all sorts of amazing crafted goodness.
* You can make cards for the flood victims to use. Thank you cards and blank cards, find out more here Heart Cards
* You can create blank scrapbook pages for flood victims. More on this one here Rising Waters Flood Appeal for Crafters

I am sure there are many more things popping up and will be more before too long. Something that we can do to help, because it all counts.
