For Lara

A very special fundraising event for a very special little girl and her family.

Madonna’s youngest daughter has several additional needs and is in desperate need of a special (and very expensive) little chair to help her be involved in everyday family life. Head on over to Madonna’s blog to join in this wonderful event.

30 tutorials in 30 days and you could win a Big Shot!!! How cool is that??? AND it’s for a great cause… what are you waiting for??


One of the reasons I love SU!

There are lots of reasons I love Stampin’ Up (apart from the fact that I do love things that match) another reason is the sense of belonging. Being a part of  a wonderful group of demonstrators who look after one another- it’s kind of like having a big family around you (mostly online) .Enough gushing……

On the weekend I was lucky enough to be involved in a fundraising event being held by a fellow demonstrator- Kirsty Brown. For those of you who don’t know Kirsty’s youngest son, Darcy, drowned in a water tank earlier this year and was rescued by some wonderful people including the Careflight helicopter, and thankfully he is now 100% well again. As a way of saying thankyou Kirsty put together a fundraiser event for RACQ Careflight in her home town of Gatton.  

A group of women (and 1 man) got together to stamp some gorgeous projects and have a whole bunch fun.

Kirsty had also made some very cute little embellishment packs that she had for sale, there were lucky door prizes as well as a huge rafflle, silent auctions and a very delicious morning tea and lunch for everyone to enjoy.

The money counting was still going on when I left but I know she had raised over $1000 at that stage. A great result for Kirsty and for Careflight 🙂

I’m sure if you head over to Kirsty’s blog she will have some more photos of the day, the projects and some info about the final tally.

Finally here is a photo of Kirsty and her little man Darcy (although he doesn’t look all that impressed about the attention LOL).
