zoo mini book

Ive been working on this mini book for the girls for almost 2 weeks. I started it just as i got my new toy. A xyron wishblade. So much of the elements r from my wishblade as i learn to use and design in the software. All the file label holders the big one and the small one, the trees and the smaller brown tree and the journalling spots i made in the software and cut. If you like any of them and want the files let me know only to happy to share them. they are all gsd (i think thats what they r) files which means if u have a craft robo ushould be able to cut them ont hat too...the files r the same.

of course the book is all about our recent trip to the zoo

and som quick close ups of some of the elements i designed and cut with the wishblade

some making as lilly would say

i have been scrapbooking. woohoo
this week actuallyi think it was last friday i got my half tart kit from lime tart...all 5th avenue..YUMO

and heres what i did with it
i still have half or more of the kit to work with. I love these photos of emily...hehe...peek a boo is a favourite in this house except she cant say peek a boo, so for us its just boo boo. Not the greatest photos but she is so quick at it when she knows u want to take a pic. she is getting such a funny little personality

always after ideas for what to do with the pencils and crayons that seem to take over the house!!! i saw the cookie containers in the new stamping up cat..see on line im hoping that it will be a great idea for us heres the first one i have made for the girls.
most of the lovely product is from my new lss that i finally made it too today. the imagination factory. its a sweet little shop in ballarat. im all booked into the sunday crop there in a few weeks. check out their blog im loving lots of the new products that r out atm

We were off and away from avoca this morning thinking we would be able to do some shopping and decided today we would go to bendigo instead of ballarat. Future note to self...bendigo has limited shoppingo n a sunday...we did get to big w which was something ihad to do and office works for a sharpener that was nicer than a normal one LOL...i hate sharpening endless pencils. After that we took lilly to mcdonalds. She has missed out on going a few times lately as she hasnt been behaving so well in the car, today she was perfect and we finally got to go
once we had done that we went in search of our next activie whoty, which involved the talking tram tour. I find the whole tram thing interesting never having been on one before. the girls loved it. We went through bendigo on the tram seeing and hearing quickly about the things int he town. We stopped at the tram museum, which was pretty cool, we got to climb over some pretty old trams.
After the tram ride we went into the central deborah gold mine for a look around. We went on an underground tour down to the second level that was 61 metres under the ground.
we all had to wear helmets with lights. dan and i had the big led light lights and lilly got to wear this little one which she played with for 45 minutes and i was continually turning it back on and telling her to leave it alone. She was a little scared i think, we saw allt he mine equipment much of it still working so alot of it was demonstrated. Its all quite loud. Emily slept throught the tour and poor dan had to carry her while holding her helmet above her head!

not many photos from under the ground it was hard for the camera to focus and i couldnt see a thing to do it manually, but this is an undergroud lunch room. its like a hallway inthe mine that they all ate lunch in. Its worth a visit to the mine they even have an underground functions ROOM i kid u not!
