First day back at uni

It was my first day back to uni after 3 months holiday. It feels so soon this time. Normally I don't mind going back but this time I wasn't really looking forward to it. I started Spanish though. It's quite good. I would love to be fluent one day.

Also I have been on an Alias marathon. I have watched the whole first season and getting season 2 tomorrow. I can't help it. It's so addictive. I love that show its one of my favourites. Too bad it's finished now. I have yet to see season 5.
This is Thara and me in the Valley. We had some lunch, Yum Cha to be exact with some friends and we are just hanging out here after. This was on Sunday. I'm not the biggest fan of Yum Cha. But it was still good.
And this is something I made. Well I just cut the silhouette out and put the paper background in the frame. I actually got the idea of the silhouette in a frame from a book Laura got for my birthday and the patterned paper idea I got from Christina Re stationary booklet. And this is just a bit of a close up. The photos are the tiniest bit blurred as it's hard to take photos of frames because of the reflection of the glass. This was the best I could do. Oh the picture is from Disney Cinderella. I love that movie. I'm using this frame to decorate my crafty room.

Oh and I'm so glad the green bridge is built to get to uni. No more paying for the ferry. I save $3.20 a day! Yay!

I have done my first real photo shop attempt. I tried to make a collage. Jase showed me how to do it but it's not the greatest but I think I did alright for my first go. So here it is--->

It's not the most fantastic thing but I tried and it took a lot longer than I thought. It's probly a bit squished but its the best I could do for now. I call it my pink collage. I will definately be trying to make more things soon.

In other news my lovely little nephew Isaiah won some photo competition. He took a photo of him and Caeleb and he won first prize in his age group!! He's only five. I've yet to see the winning photo. But he did win a digital camera and some vouchers for something =p. How awesome is that!? A five year old.

My nephews 2nd bday

This past weekend it was my little nephew Caeleb's 2nd birthday. They had a little gathering in the park on Saturday. It was fun. It was a really nice park too. So many things to play on. No wonder Cael didn't want to do anything else except play on the equipment. Here are a few photos from the day. This is the birthday boy. He had a lot of fun playing on the different pieces of equipment.
Isn't this a lovely cake? It's so cute. Too bad it had to be cut through. But I love that there is a picture on it. It's very sweet.This Cael with a bit of cake on his face already after dipping his fingers in the icing. That's his mum in the background, my sister in law.
This is both of my nephews. The older one Isaiah. Thought I would just add one of them cutting the cake.And Jason and me. I have to chuck in a photo of us of course. It got a bit windy when we took the photo. It was a fun day. Afterwards we went to another gathering to eat. We are always eating it seems.

I'm going to spend the day doing more cleaning before I have to go back to uni which is next week! Eep! I only have this year left. So that's really exciting and scary at the same time.

Anyway until next time xox

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day to all! I've had a good day although Jason is at work now =( We went to Hogs Breath Cafe for lunch. It was awesome food! I have a few photos I want to share. So here they are--
This is us waiting for the cafe to open. So we just took some photos randomly. He is obviously bending down =)
This the front of the shirt that I stencilled for him. It's a transformer Autobot. I've made one like this before but there is a difference this time.

This is the difference. I stenciled a decepticon on the back of the shirt. Since my original plan didn't work out for me.
And this is the other thing I bought him. It's one of those Me to You bears. It's a photo clip. Behind those hearts there is a clip for photos. I think it's really cute.This is what he got for me. A single red rose which I love! And this beautiful vintage style box. It's so lovely. It came with things in it as well.
And it was funny coz he bought me a Me to You bear as well. How sweet is it??!!
And this is the rose, bear and inside of the box. It had pretty little cut out red paper hearts, cut out pink paper hearts that he wrote a message on, 2 large chocolate hearts and some Lindor chocolate balls. So cute!
This is pretty much everything. With the little message spelt out. It was so lovely and thoughtful. I kind of like the sweet and corny, cliche presents. It makes it all fun.

We had a great day and I love what I got! And here is a goodbye pic from inside of Hogs Breath.

New Blog

I have yet again made a new blog. I wanted to focus on my creating and taking better photos. I also wanted to change my blog name. As Gracie Bella Butterfly is my 'brand' I guess you could say. I'm trying to figure out if I'm able to put my old posts to this blog but Jason is trying to see if he can figure it out. So watch this space for more!! xox
