Happy Saturday......

The day has not quite started for us here yet.  I hear 1 little person pottering out in the lounge room after having a snuggle in bed with me for a few minutes to say goodmorning.......but we are still in bed.  I am contemplating a latte and quickly adding this post.......

The next release went up at The Color Room Yesterday.  It is a lovely palette.  Beautiful teals!  I would like to have another try at it, since I created my LO ages ago, for the Russian Magazine Feature they did for us on The Color Room.  We are getting our very own copy in the post at some point.  Thank goodness they have pictures.  I am not at all fluent in Russian!!! LOL

The image is from Lolly's Blog  If you have never been there and enjoy a craft or two, be sure to visit!  You wont be dissappointed!

Perfect for this boys page........But it does not need to be a boys page!  I think it would go equally well on a girly page!

Well that's it for me today!  Have a good one everyone.  (So glad the weekend is here!)

Totally stoked. 
I am a glue girl. 
I always have several bottles on the go and my very own stash in the cupboard in case I run out!  Most of which is actually Helmar!  Super Tac is my absolute favourite.  I cant even count the number of bottles I have purchased of this amazing stuff.  It should not be too difficult to share how much I love glue!!!!  I use it more than any other product after all.....

Todays release on the Color Room was a monster one!  We revealed our new DT girls, and newly designed site with a freebie, and plenty of inspiration!!!!  If you want to check it out see HERE....It is truely a bumber release!

Palette # 29 was formulated for a feature on The Color Room in a Russian Magazine just recently (along with Palette #30)  It is taken from Her room and is soft and pretty.

The DT girls did a phenomenal job and the line up of projects on the site is really something!
