Australia's Biggest Morning Tea Fundraiser.

Wow!! I'm exhausted.  I've just taken part in an online craft day held at Crafters Anonymous to raise money for the Cancer Council. It was full on from 7am WA time, until 3pm.  During that time I have made seven projects, we had an hour to do each and to photograph them and upload them onto the CA website.  I only just made it each time and I was amazed at the wonderful things people made, some of them in a really short time.  I don't know how they do it!!

Here are the photos of what I made, including the mess, in no particular order.

The first card here was a colour challenge.  Create something using the Neutral colours.

The next card was a layout challenge, it was a scrapbook page but I made mine into a card. Besides the layout the other stipulation was there had to be a cupcake on the project.

This little cupcake is an alternate version to the plant pot card I made a few weeks back.

Next we had a recipe challenge.  I was expecting something to do with a cake recipe or something similar.  However, this is what it was: Ingredients: Plain cardstock, Patterned paper, cutting die or template, adhesive of your choice.
Method:  Throw all the ingredients into your "mixing bowl".  Stir until happy with your mixture.  You can now add your "icing".  Icing Ingredients:  One Sentiment, Pearl button, Lace/Ribbon and a Toothpick.

This is what I came up with.

Here's a great way to wrap a chocolate bar to give as a gift. It's very quick and easy.

This gorgeous little box has an accetate window so you can peep inside, very cute.

I've been wanting to have a go at one of these cake boxes for a long time so now I know how easy it was I will have to make some more.  I can imagine a Beautiful Boxes technique class coming up soon!

Finally this is what my table looks like now!  Where to start?  I suppose just start putting everything away, one thing at a time.   

Thanks to the ladies at CA for organising the day. I even managed to win a prize.  Nothing to do with my creative talents, a random draw.  Not sure what yet, but I will be looking forward to finding out soon.

Hope you all had a good weekend and managed to do something nice.

Bye for now,
