Happy Easter!

Card class

I really enjoyed these easter projects.  The bunny card was my favorite technique using versamark, glitter and embossing powder.
This is a great gift for kids who love to cook.  

Easter fun with friends!

Over Easter my friends Doug and Janine and their children (my God Children) came to visit.  We had a wonderful time and spent the whole day at M.O.T.A.T.  The kids are growing up so fast so it was great to spend some time with them.

Here we are looking in one of the old trams.  We enjoyed a tram rid too.
Remember these police cars!  Flash ay.

Nicolas drives the big steam engine while Jared (sitting) Matthew Me and Tegan look on.

Animals are so helpful


Ayla helped me trim a tree by stopping all the clippings from being blown away (even though there was no wind).  It was a hot day and the clippings were nice and cool.


Puke fancies herself as a dress maker and was making it very clear that this was not the piece of pattern I should use.  (Why do cats always have to sit on the piece of paper your reading?)

A visit from Scotland

Having lunch at sky tower

My friend Carol came from Scotland for a holiday and I was lucky enough to spend the day with her.  Wanting to show her Auckland as well as gas bag, lunch up the sky tower seemed like the perfect treat.  We had a wonderful day, it didn't feel like 9 years since we had seen each other. Wow how time flies!  Carol was then off to Hamilton and to continue with friends on a tour of the south island.
