Opus Gluei Challenge - Naturally Inspired

This is what we saw on Friday afternoon when we took little Miss Sydney Woo for a hike on the Bruce Trail in Queenston. We are so lucky in this part of the world for many, many things. We get to experience four seasons per year, and they all have so many things about them that are beautiful. I love the colours of the leaves when they change. This pic was taken of the trail, covered with leaves and just so pretty! And if you can believe it, in all of those leaves along the Bruce Trail, Miss Sydney Woo found a piece of gum. Who says pugs don't have noses!!! This little girl finds gum EVERYWHERE!!!! What a monkey!

More Exploding Boxes and One Gorgeous Girl

Miss Sydney Woo, on the Bruce Trail in Queenston. Just had to put that one in here. Tee hee.






An exploding box to put money inside for our beautiful niece. She LOVES Sydney Woo, so what better theme than the most beautiful pug in the world!!!












Our othe beautiful niece LOVES Twilight, so hers is the black and red theme. I hear that Jacob is her fave.

Some New Cards







Some new cards that I made recently using Perfect Pearls and Createx Inks.
Kind of lost my mojo for a little while the past few weeks. I am missing my Gram so very much and a few weeks ago it was two years since she left us and went to heaven. So I wasn't very creative during that time, but I am back at it now. Gram would have kicked my butt had she known that I was so very sad, so I am doing my best to get back in the groove. Thanks Gram!!!
Oh, and the exposure is not so great, a little overdone, but I am working on that. Hopefully the next pics will be better.

Ahhhhhhhhhh.....comfort food. Yum!

Good old fashioned English comfort food. Bread pudding!!! One side with raisins and the other side without. My parents came over for dinner last night and I made a prime rib roast with carrots and potatoes, fresh cucumbers (my husband's absolute fave veggie), and a nice tossed salad. I surprised my Dad with a bread pudding, one of his English faves. My Mom doesn't like raisins, so one side was done raisin-free. It was so deelish! That is the first time I made it and I got the recipe from www.allrecipes.com which is a great resource for all things food. Mmmmm....I can still taste it...............

More Christmas Ornaments













Here are a few more Christmas ornaments that I made using a stampe from Outlines Rubber Stamps. I love their stamps, so clean and elegant. Decorating with Ranger Stickles and a few bit and baubles gives these a real punch.
