An APPLE a Day........


What a fantastic Thursday it is......... hope you have all woken up with a spring in your step ready to embrace the amazing.
Speaking of amazing, I have always admired the creative genius of Stacey Young - her scrap work is to die for ( I really have no words to explain really). Well anyway I got super excited when she put a step by step up on her blog so I took it as the perfect opportunity to get inside her brain.
This came at the perfect time because we had a challenge with our local scrap group to design a layout that incorporated your APPLE name into it ( We are Toowoomba ScrapApples and my APPLE name is bappleicious). And this ladies and gents is my layout -

It just goes to prove that everyone has BAD days

Finally used a vine that has been in my stash for 2 years :)

Cute little birdy and other elements
Thank you Stacey for sharing your art and giving me the opportunity to give it a go.
Hope you all have an amazing day and don't forget to leave the love to let me know you have been here.

Pork and Prawn Fried Rice

Happy Sunday,

It's always nice to have fried rice for dinner but sometimes just the basic 'normal' fried rice can get a bit boring. This recipe puts a nice spin on the boring.

6 Eggs, Lightly Beaten
650g Pork Mince
4 Cloves Garlic, crushed
500g Raw Prawns, Peeled
2 Celery Stalks, chopped
3 Spring Onions, chopped
2 pkts Pre-cooked Long Grain Fried Rice
3/4 cp Oyster Sauce
3/4 cp Water


1. Heat 1tsp oil in wok or large frying pan. Add egg. cook for 1-2 minutes.Remove and then slice up.
2. Heat remaining oil. Stir fry the mince, add garlic and ginger. Transfer to plate once cooked. Add prawns to heat, cook, return mince to pan, add celery and spring onions
3. Add rice and stir till heated through. Combine the oyster sauce and water in a bowl, add o rice and stir to combine.
4. Serve

If you have any Fried Rice Variations I would love to hear about them. Don't forget to leave me some love and let me know if you try the recipe whether you like it or not.

She Knew.........


I have been doing Mixed Media Canvases from Blue Bazaar to help broaden my technique knowledge. I try to not do them exactly the same, I am all about adding my own touch to things. Luise and the team really do put together a great variety of products for you to use which is fantastic cause they are items that I would never think to use myself :)
Here is the canvas -

I had lots of fun with this one and I absolutely adore the colours. If you have visited please leave me some love so I know you have been here
Happy Hump Day
