It pays to be up early sometimes.
These photos are of the sunrise I was lucky
enough to witness this morning.
Our eldest is home on Uni holidays for a couple
of weeks and working. He starts early, and like
a good Mum (or a stupid one) I am up early to
get his lunch packed, then start on everyone
elses lunch.
I just happend to spot this beautiful sunrise
this morning. I only wish I had the time to
have gone for a walk to really enjoy it.
To do that I will even have to be up earlier!!!

150 Year Celebrations in Beeac

This weekend just gone saw a great weekend in
down town Beeac. There were aroung the 2,000 people turn out for the day on Saturday (could
have even been more.
The celebrations on Saturday started with a street parade at 11.00 a.m. This is my hubby
driving the 40 year old farm truck in the parade.
He was as proud as punch to be part of it.
These are the old tractors that were in the
parade. Of course there were lots more
things, too many to put up on here.

Then at 2.00p.m. there was an official
opening of this beautiful windmill park, which
the community have been working on for a long
time. Beeac is the home of the windmill. There are 6 windmills, one for each family that made

On Sunday after a church service and a bbq lunch
at the Golf Club, I went and had a look at this
beautiful garden. A lovely way to finish the
The weekend started with the opening of an art show and an official lauch of a book.
The whole weekend was a real buzz, and even
though I was not born and bred here, Beeac is now home for me, and it was a fabulous weekend.

For those of you who don't know, I am also
a Stampin' Up Consultant, and just for a little
bit of fun I have been covering Journals using
some of the latest Stampin' Up Designer Series papers. This one uses Newsprint. The lower right hand corner has a small piece of embossed paper that I dragged across the stamp pad to add some colours to the flowers. I embossed the paper with the new "Big Shot" and I can't wait to get some more designs. It is so easy and so much fun.

I covered this journal with paper from the
Love Letters Designer Series paper.
I cut the birds out using the new Two Step
Bird Punch. These new punches are
amazing to use too. I then tied various ribbons
and lace down the spiral of the journal. The
black and white striped ribbon is from the lovely
range of Stampin' Up 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon. The other ribbon is
out of my stash and I just thought it went
nicely and added a bit of variety. The Lace is
out of my lace tin too.
Both journals come blank from Stampin' Up.

I have also been playing with some bookmarks
and using one of the new hostess stamp sets
called Because I Care. This is a lovely stamp
set, and is available to you if you wish to host
a workshop and qualify for a Level 1 Hostess

This just shows you a closer picture of the
beautiful flower stamp, and once again the
beautiful black and white ribbon.
