Shabby Chic Tag

One of the Mum’s at my daughter’s Dance Studio is an ex-police officer and now teaches Child Safety & Protection at Bond University on the Gold Coast, Australia. She is someone who makes a huge difference  in this world we live in and I admire her because she has devoted her life and career to protecting children and teaching others to be like herself. I was inspired to make her something and I decided a bookmark for her text books at work would be perfect!

The unusual wet embossing technique I used to make the designer paper shabby chic I will put the instructions in my next post!

Darling Daughter has had a busy few days and competed in the Gold Coast Eisteddfod.

The school choir routine of a melody of 3 songs was cute and all the kids dressed up like orphans, they didn’t win this year but just being in choir really improves my daughters quality of voice and she seems to sound crisper, not to mention has learnt so much.

Then she competed in her group dance routines. Under 10’s in 4 sections and she won 1st place in all 4 sections.I am so proud of her and all the effort she has put into her dancing this year, she has a work ethic to be envied. I am now thanks to you tube an expert hair dresser & make-up artist. I’ve also now perfected the art of applying False Eyelashes of which I am so proud of myself.

Yesterday at my daughters Year 5 Church service all the Year 5 kids did a play and sang. I looked everywhere but darling daughter wasn’t an actor or singer ….what the …..Anyway I spot her she is down at the back of the church coaching the year 5 choir on stage with all the actions and expressions for the kids on the stage.. I was great to see her Year 5 teacher use her talents in such an unusual way.

After church we headed out to watch hubby coach and my gorgeous son who is 15 play in the Under 19’s Youth Soccer game. I took 100’s photos and really enjoyed watching them both in action . I really enjoyed my weekend!
