I have something a little different for you today, I have been so inspired by all this Gorgeous Art Journalling that I have been seeing lately that I just had to have a go! Plus TGF is doing and Art Journalling like challenge and the first challenge is wings and things. So this is my entry for this weeks challenge.

But of course I had to use my absouletly favourite stamps, TGF and of course my Copics....they are always close by....hehe!

Yesterday was my Twins 5th Birthday! I can't believe that are now 5, time sure flies when your having fun! We did attempt to go to the Melbourne Zoo for the day, but as we headed off it started to rain, so we changed our minds and headed off to the Melbourne Aquarium. We had a Great time, one of my girls fell in love with the great BIG Grey Nurse Shark, she followed it around the Aquarium as it swum around!

Bubbles & Red Velvet!

I just LOVE Masterchef and in a couple of the latest episodes the have made these Red Velvet Cupcakes, so I decided to look them up and find a recipee and give them a go. While I was making these I was chatting away to the lovely Sammi and she demanded that I take pictures to show her the finished result...hehe! So Sammi, this is for you...hehe! Here is what they looked like and I have to say the were absolutely delicious, everyone loved them.

Ok so onto some Scrappin!
There seem to be lots of these Gorgeous Banners floating around on LO's lately and so I decided to give them a go on  this page of my youngest playing with his bubbles. I am really happy with how it turned out. I wanted to keep this LO simple to show off the photos of Oscar playing with the bubbles!

 I am having so much fun scrapping at the moment, you will definietly be seeing more from me! Especially after today I recieved my July Nook kit and OMGosh it is Gorgeous! Lots of October Afternoon 5 & Dime, and it is very NICE...hehe!
