Treasure each Day

(even Luna got a prawn lol)
 G'day from this hot and beautiful sunny afternoon in Beenleigh, Qld :) Hopefully you've all managed to survive Christmas day, with not too much of a sore tum or hangover LOL. We were lucky to be invited to our neighbour's home and shared a yummy Christmas day lunch - DLH and I brought the ham and I made the pavlova.

  Our lovely generous neighbours cooked the roast turkey AND the prawns as well as providing the beautiful table setting. 

 Thanks  SO much Karen and Chris - you, Zoe, Lily, Luna AND Buddy were awesome company and yes, we accept your invite back in 2016!!! ha ha ha !!!
On that note, I was inspired to create this LO for Words or Whatever (WOW)'s challenge #2 when I remembered some photos from our Thailand trip that hadn't been scrapped :) 
I took these photos of the lily ponds in Sukhothai, Thailand on 25th December 2008 during our Christmas lunch :)

LSG embossing powder (Raspberry Lemonade)

Other: Texture paste, pink gel pen
and after all the teases, here's the whole layout:

I’ve been wanting to scrap this photo for ages – in fact since I took the photo at Edmund Park in Laidley, Qld during a scrapbook retreat in January 2014!! When December’s White with One challenge came up with this beautiful colour (Majorca Blue)
 I decided it would be perfect due to the stunning shapes and colours in this gecko I found there ;)  You may also notice that my LO is based the December 15th sketch over at Stuck Sketches?!.
So, without further ado here are some close-ups, including a 'before' here:

.. Enjoy!

Quote of the Day

butterfly kisses

My fairy

Your fairy is called Columbine Goblinglitter
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen in the light of a shooting star.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has gentle green wings like a butterfly.
