What shape are you???

No this doesn't relate to your body shape. It's a personality test.

Here's the link: http://www.quizilla.com/quizzes/451405/what-shape-are-you-a-triangle-a-circle-a-rectangle-a-square-or-a-squiggle

And here's my result:

You are a triangle.

  • The triangle is rooted in thousands of years of history.
  • The symbol itself focuses upward to the sun, to the deity. It is the pyramids. In current times it is the hierarchy in management. Triangles are the ultimate symbol of leadership.
  • Triangles are strong, decisive people. Triangles are the power shape. Triangles love to tell other shapes what to do. The triangle is a strategic thinker with long-term plan. Male triangles are delegators; female triangles still do everything themselves.
  • The triangle is a left brain linear thinker; however, the triangle processes information very quickly. Triangles do everything faster because they wish to get to the point.
  • Triangles are the snap decision makers.
  • Triangles are generally smart people. On the Downside, they tend to be egotistical, into status symbols, and highly opinionated. (ouch)
  • They are focused and smart.
  • Triangles are the classic leadership type and most likely to be found in the boardroom; however, they are not broad thinkers and tend to be self-oriented instead of open. Motto of the triangle is I did it my way
  • Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher are Triangles.

I can vouch that this is quite accurate which is very scary.

Birthday card for my niece

It's my niece's 17th birthday this week so I made this card for her today. I used teal and salmon cardstock from my lss. The flower is white, almost transaparent so looks like it's a light pink colour when put on the salmon. I've used crystalina kindyglitz on the flower stems which looks very pretty.

more flower photos

These pansies were taken in my garden, and I just had to share them with you. As you can tell I love flowers. Now that the warmer weather is here gardens are blooming.

Todays card-making adventures

I went to a SU workshop hosted by my SU demonstrator, Christine. We had a great afternoon and made 10 cards from two of the Simply Sent kits - Sending Happy Thoughts and Simple Delights (pages 13-14 of the Aussie SU 2008 catalogue).

Here are some of the cards we made today. Christine designed these cards using different coloured cardstock to show the versatility of the sets. Some of the cards are made using Blue Bayou, Soft Sky and Groovy Guava from the In Colour range.

Just had to share these photos with you

I took these photos at my house and my Mum & Dad's house a few weeks ago and they have stayed on my camera since. They looked nice on the camera screen but today I got them printed. My first thought on seeing them when printed was "WOW". I was playing with the macro function on the camera as it's something I've not done much in the past.

The third photo is my favourite. It's one of Mum's camelias

Tag ideas

I made these tag ideas for my workshop next weekend. The first one shows how you can use tags for matting photos and the second is putting embellishments on your tags. Both ideas belong to Kerrianne Hobbs.

Oh No!! I've been tagged....

Thanks Lita (no really, I'm not being sarcastic, lol).

Ok here goes.....

First of all - the rules:

Link the person who tagged you.
Tell about 6 quirks of yours.
Tag 6 fellow bloggers to do the same.
Leave a comment to let them know.

1. I'm fanatical about red

2. I love going to display homes and Open House Inspections when someone's selling their house

3. I take no notice of the colour of the pegs I use when hanging washing out (much to my Mum's frustration)

4. My tins are never straight in my pantry

5. I love travelling

6. I like going out for dinner with friends

Now I'm tagging:
