Week 5 Scrap that Ad

This week our ad inspiration was the Dove evolution ad. Criteria was to use a least one photo of yourself, the word beauty and a frame or billboard.

My journaling is a creed by Christian D Larsen - it's called a Promise to myself

To always see the beauty that comes from within
To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person I meet.
To make all my friends feel that there is something special in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best, to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet.
To give so much time to the improvement of myself that I have no time to critisize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
To think well of myself and proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words but in great deeds.
To live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me.
Beauty comes from within

Cold, wet and windy with a touch of sunshine

It's been very cold, very wet and very windy. I know it's Winter and that is what you get here in Winter, but I am longing for warmth and sunshine. During the week we had one day - yes that is right 'One Day' that was sunny. Still icy cold, but sunny. The kids spent the afternoon outside. It's been such a long time, since I pulled the camera out and just captured everyday things.

Kloe and Jarred making quicksand and a river.
Zac even got his bow and arrow out, for some target practise on a bale of hay.

And this little man is less another tooth, he is sending the tooth fairy broke.
Honey and Missy our cows. Look at those very fat bellies, there is babies in there. So exciting. They are due around Christmas time.
Another two new additions to the family. We have lost another two chooks in the last few weeks. They get old and get egg bound, not nice but it's become a fact of life for us all.
And Princess Lilly, this cat is the most adored and spoilt cat to live.

As some of you may have read, I got some very unkind comments on this blog, which made me rethink the whole blog thing. Yesterday I reopened the comments and this morning I woke up and received the most lovely comment, from someone I don't know. It made me smile and has given me some faith back in the whole online thing. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me such a beautiful comment. You have added some sunshine in my day xoxo

Kayla's Cushion

Kayla is doing textiles this semester, she didn't think it was really her thing. She has changed her mind :)
After a lot of research, she came up with this design and set about creating this cushion. She was thrilled with the results and so proud of her efforts. Next on her list of things to make, is a jacket and fascinator for the races.

Studio Calico Anthology

The latest DT challenge for Addicted to Craft was to use the new Studio Calico Anthololgy range. I want to say a big thank you to Deb, who had a little play with this photo of Zac. She does amazing things in photoshop - thanks Deb xoxo
You can see what the other girls came up with on the blog.
This is my last challenge for ATC. I have decided to step down from my position on the design team. It was a hard decision to make, but one that I had to do for myself.
