I did this Layout last weekend of my little sister at the Manly Jazz festival, when we were in Sydney. She was trying to learn to skateboard, or relearn i should say as we used to do this when we were kids.' I really love this Layout it's so bright i don't usually do coplours like this.

This is an Aussle that i got from The Scrap Heap i can't believe these are still only $15 for 3 aussles, thanks Christine and have a great day everyone

Miniature

just got home form shopping and am off to bed, thought i'd have a glimpse at hsms to see what the prompt was and i can do this one really easily woo hoo

so here is Miniature



i love this cute little ring holder a couple of my new friends from China gave me for my birthday earlier this year, and it is just perfect for my ring too, no more sitting on the ledge above the kitchen sink for you.
so how easy was that night night everyone

Collect

woo hoo i have found a solution to my MSHS dilemma, i haven't had time to do this lately due to traveling to and from the temporary office, so i decided to do the photos in my luncha hour. This serves too purposes

1. i get to do my photos which i loved being a part of and

2. i have to stop work and have a break even if it is for only 5 mins

the downside is i have to find things to take photos of at work and i have limited soft ware on my computer so have to rely on my photo taking skills but hey i'm joining in.


So without further ado here is Collect..........

it seems i'm developing quite a little collection of these little express post tags

Academic Award


Well here he is my beautiful boy Conor winning an Academic award for year 9. I’m so proud of him; he’s worked so hard to get all his marks up across the board instead of doing really really well in some and not so well in others. Conor is a little disappointed because he wanted to get a subject award, but I’m hoping one day he’ll understand what this means. To me it means he’s getting ready for Year 11 and 12 when he’ll have to be brilliant in every subject he does.
So Conor sweetie, I am so proud of you!

flourless orange cake

woo hoo i found a really great Recipe for a cake that Beka can eat

this cake was divine and we didn't even make the orange syrup ( i ran out of time)

Flourless orange cake with orange syrup

2 Valencia oranges
3 eggs
1 cup caster sugar
300g almond meal ( i only had 200g so i topped it up with some gluten free flour and still it tasted so good)
1 tsp baking powder

Orange Syrup
1 Valencia orange, extra
3/4 cup caster sugar

1. Preheat oven to 170 C. Grease a 22cm cake pan. Place whole oranges into a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15 mins until tender. Drain. Repeat. Refresh under cold water and drain.

2. Coarsely chop warm oranges and remove and discard any pips, place into food processor and process until smooth.

3. Using electric beaters, whisk eggs and sugar until thick and creamy. Add processed orange mixture, almond meal and baking powder and gently fold until combined. Pour into pan and bake for 1 hour. Cool.

4. For syrup, remove peel from orange and cut into thin strips. Place into saucepan, cover with water and boil for 5 mins. Drain, returning water to pan and set aside peel. Squeeze juice from the peeled orange, and add to pan with sugar. Stir over low heat until sugar dissolves and syrup thickens. Spoon over cake. Sprinkle with orange strips and serve.
