So sorry for the late post...my Scheduling didn't work right for some reason...better late than never eh???

Well although i have hundreds of digital images i didn't have any that would suit this theme.( how could THAT happen)..So i went on the hunt and found this one on a colouring page site...fabulous image. The whale was so big that i had to make my picture a little larger than usual. I coloured with promarkers and just added a little glitter and made my own seaweed which i dry embossed. The little one inch images are from my bottlecap images i've purchased....the colours matched perfectly...Many thanks for dropping by and thanks for the great comments you leave.

This is what i've been up to....ELMO

Hey all, did we enjoy our weekend. Had fun with family and friends...i did. Last weekend was my grand baby's 2nd birthday and i just had to make a bunch of party favors for her...let's have a look and tell me what you think...did i go OVERBOARD????
I am the grandma don't forget:0)
First up Pinata which was a big fail....great idea and i had strings for the kids to pull but i made it a week in advance and the small strip of painters tape i used just wouldn't let go...let's just say it took three men to get it open..but in the end the kids loved all the treats inside...which included...fishy crackers, small kitkat bars and some gummy treats and a few chocolate dollars thrown in...i just sugared them up real good...

Then i made these cute boxes which i filled with two marshmallow dipped treats...one dipped in caramel than chocolate and the other just dipped in chocolate with a little white chocolate to dress it up.
Sugar cookies were also made to go with their theme of Elmo..Now in my defence these were the only treats they were to get but after seeing how to make the easy pinata i just had to go there...RIGHT???

Then i made these super cute personalized colouring books. Each child's name was on the cover and inside is each letter of their name spelled out with matching pictures to colour...So each book spells out their name...and i used my new binding machine to put them together...

Last but not least my daughter and i made these super fun cupcakes instead of a cake...all the kids loved them and even Avery helped put on a couple eyes and noses...i have to say we had some wonky looking Elmo's that day...

So what do you think....we had loads of fun and ate way too much sugar but the day was beautiful, everyone had a wonderful time...Many thanks for dropping by and will see you on my next post Wednesday for some more Redonkulous fun....

Let's have a look at some new projects...up first:




KIM...that's me..

 Well here it is my new project i managed to do...What do you think.. I coloured this most adorable image that represents my granddaughter and her trusty friend Carl...oh how cute she is...I used promarkers to match her turtle the best i could and tried my hand at getting her hair coloured right...let's just say i'm a little off the mark here but my daughter knew who it was instantly...she was so surprised and she doesn't want baby Avery to wear it as she wants to keep it clean:0) I then scanned my coloured image and then used iron on transfer paper for light coloured fabric and printed it out using my inkjet printer...The colour came out slightly darker but close enough for me. I then cut out the image with a little 1/4 inch or so around the edges. Ironed it on for 3 minutes let cool and viola....all done. The hardest part was finding a white shirt for her. I had to shop in the boys section, but she is only two...she will never know..Here is the card i made with my coloured image...if you happened to miss my last post...

Many thanks for dropping by and check out REDONKULOUS store...i even spotted some digi paper i just have to have...and a new image...see ya soon..
