You have until Saturday night to enter. Meanwhile I have some other new work up on the Ruby Rock-It blog to share...

This month for my Ruby Rock-It assignment I have been asked to work on our "Special Occasion" theme. This is where we get to focus on a particular even going on around us, and show a way to showcase that in our crafting. Obvious, this month being Mother's Day both here in Australia as well as in the States, this was the perfect event to commemorate.

I hardly ever seem to end up in the camera shot with all of my kids, so being Mother's Day I requested we take some shots especially. Can you believe that this was only the second or third shot we took. I am so lucky to have very photogenic children. I really love this precious photo..so much in fact that you may notice I used it on a Memory Maze layout as well. I couldn't resist.

So, I found this small plastic gumball machine at the local thrift store. I had been wanting to make one of these for ages, so it was a great find. I'm so happy with the way this turned out. I'm thinking I may take it to work to sit on my desk.

I have used used the apricot colours from the Oriental Chic range, along with the blue flowers that match, along with some additional birds from one of the Fundamentals decoupage papers.
