I Bumped Into Alice In Wonderland?!

Actually I bumped into Alice at the Domain, here in Auckland!  I had gone into the Domain one sunny day and came across a large group of people of varying ages all dressed up!  The dress up day had been arranged on Facebook and everyone met up at the Domain for a day of fun!  I just happened to be there with my camera!  Love the knickers Alice!  I had lot's of fun watching everyone and taking photo's!

Summer Celebration!

I had to rotate this photo twice before I posted it to get it up the right way!!  So when it appeared on here it was the right way round.
It has taken me several days to figure that out!  Anyway, this is my aunty and myself at her 90th birthday in February!  There were abut 10 of us altogether and we had lunch at a beautiful winery called Soljan's Estate Winery.  It was, as you can tell, a gorgeous warm sunny day.  This photo was taken back at my aunties place, in her garden.  Everyone had a great day!
Happy Mothers Day to all the great mums out there!

HELP PLEASE!

Okay, I have a problem...can you guess what it is??!  Recently I have been having problems publishing my photo's onto my blog.  For un-known reasons some of them appear sideways, like this one!  BTW, this is my aunty and I at her 90th birthday recently. 
However, we should not be on our sides!  Does anyone know why this happens and how do I fix it??  Not every photo does this!  Before I post my photo's I reduce them in size as I take them in high resolution.  I am using the same photo programes as I usually do and am going through exactly the same process as normal.  I have not changed anything.  I always edit my photo's before posting and any that need rotating I do that.  This is soooooo frustrating as I don't know how to fix it and I don't want to post all my photo's sideways!!  Please, anyone, if you know how I can fix this, please email me at sapphirerose@ocon.net.nz thank you!
There is nothing to say 'rotate' once the photo is published.  What do I do?  Once I get is sorted I will re-post this photo...the right way round!  Thank you for reading this weird post!  {HUGS} from me to YOU:-) 

Trouble!

"Romeo-Valentino" gets warm and comfortable in the laundry cupboard!  He loves to get in here and have a snooze as it is warm and cozy for winter days!

Pop Up Box Cards


These are two of the pop up box cards I made late last year.  I didn't have a template for them but someone sent me one of these cards and I was able to see how it was made and made some myself.  I think the one directly above was the first one I made.  The mouse is made using the SU Christmas ornament punch.  I think I made his ears from a heart punch, and his paws were made from another SU punch.  The lady bugs are a die, possibly a Memory Box or Elizabeth Craft die.  Ditto with the bee's!  They are alot of fun to make and everyone I have given one to loves it!

Wedding Card


This was a quick Wedding card I made today for my physio I go to.  She was married recently.  I also made the envelope using my We R Memory Keepers Envelope Maker.  (I can't live without that thing!)  The card has tiny punched out flowers on it and each flower has a tiny stick on pearl in the centre. I also added a small touch of glitter to each flower.  I made the bow using the SU bow punch. I added some ribbon as well.
After I took the photo of the envelope I added a small pearl to the centre of the bow...and forgot to take another photo of it!

SU Baby Cards


I made thse cards recently using the Baby Bumblebee stamp from SU.  I also used their bow punch to make the paper bows.  The card with the bird on is an Elizabeth Craft die.  I hav done the inlay technique with the bird.  The white base card is kind of swirly instead of plain white.  Not sure where I got that from but I have it in various colours and it has a faint perfume.  It's one of my favourite types of card. kay, thanks for visiting, {HUGS} from me to YOU:-)
