{Sunday News}

Lots has been happening this week with Sam, he is starting to do lots of new things like pulling himself up on the couch and stand there until he falls over..... He thinks he is pretty clever too.

On wednesday afternoon he started saying Bub and is now saying Dad as well.

Last weekend I did the santa hat photoshoot Sam and Mia were happy to pose but as usual Brie just didn't want to be in it!

Check out my cheeky little monster at 10pm the other night he just did not want to go to sleep.

How cute is this!!! I found this blog who shared a fab tutorial on how to make them. It is so cute, Brie actually tried to eat it.....

Not much else happening here this weekend. Lots of swimming in the pool. Salt brought a baby galah home from work last night that he found. So the girls think that is pretty good.
My SIL Kristal has some great new designs for christmas cards on her site so go and check them out... Tell her I sent you!!!
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday everyone :o)

{Scrapping Christmas Decorations Tutorial}

Last week I was browsing throught the christmas ezibuy catalogue and saw these great christmas words that you can hang on the tree...... The scrapper in me imediatley thought I can make them with all my chipboard letters that I have :o)

You will need:
Dimensional magic
Ink -
string/ribbon/fishing line.... what ever you wish to use to hang it on your tree.

Step 1.
Get out the letters you wish to use.

Step 2. Ink them up with what ever colour theme your tree is :o) I used silver as I didn't have gold or red :o(

Step 3. Join your word together so each letter is touching. Cover with Dimensional magic, it will join at each letter where it touches. It will be messy!!!!!

Now sprinkle HEAPS of glitter on the dimensional magic and let it dry for 24 hours at least.

I think the Dimensional Magic is the best thing to use as it does give it dimension where as kindyglitz is a bit flat once it dries.
These are my finished words, I still need to put something on them to hang them from the tree but seen as it isn't the 1st of December yet!!!!

but here are the photos from the catalogue for you to see how good they look. I noticed BigW has them in there catalogue too.
I am going to make some with our names on them as well I think they would look good as well, something different from the name bauble.
Enjoy making these for your family.... handmade decorations are great :o)
Thanks Amie xx
