Hi Lovelies

New in store today. 5 new ranges from Bo Bunny.

Provence is my favourite and I have snaffled it for an upcoming 10 card class.    I just love the colours and the images, I really cannot wait to play with this range.

The Enchanted Forest range has been popular with many of our team.   These gorgeous autumn colours lend them selves to so many projects.

We are so very blessed to have in store some of the amazing layouts  by Bo Bunny design team member, Bernii.

Dear Santa is so much fun.   Linda will be using this range of papers in the upcoming Christmas tags class  being held on November 27th.

Sleigh Ride was one of those ranges that looked okay on the web, but spectacular in real.  I am so pleased that Linda talked me into getting it in. I just love that it is a little winterish and a little woodsy.

Class Fun - Dress Forms

In March, the delightful Helen spent the day with a number of ladies guiding them through creating these own version of this beautiful dress forms.

There were mountains of mess, a reasonable amount of singed fingers, and lots of laughter.
 Colour choices were varied as were the adornments of the each of these beautiful designs.

While there were many burnt fingers, there was also lots of laughter and mischief making.

It's Friday - it must be food.

Easy Coconut Cake
Another delicious recipe supplied by Judy T.
Robbie specially asked for this recipe.  So glad he enjoys cooking.
1 cup dessicated coconut
2 small eggs beaten
1 cup SR flour 
125 grams butter melted
3/4 cup caster sugar 
1/2 cup milk
1 small tin drained crushed pineapple. (optional but makes it very, very nice!)

Sift flour into bowl, add coconut, sugar and mix. Combine melted butter, milk and eggs and add to dry ingredients. Stir to combine. Can use beaters but I just do it by hand.
Place in a greased slice tin and bake in a moderate oven 20 - 25 mins.
 Ice with vanilla or passion fruit icing.

Variations: Leave out pineapple and add grated apple and walnuts or 1 tablespoon cocoa

Can be used for patty cakes
