Being Australia Day Weekend here and I time we usually spend with friends and family relaxing and enjoying the fabulous lifestyle we have in this land, I wanted to share with you a little video that my friend Fran from Lumin-esence put together for me!

Ever since she showed me a little movie of her family she created for her husband I have been desperate to create one of my family.  You will have seen the one we created at the end of the year for Sweet Style (if not you can find it here but watch this one first!) Now it is time to show you the one of my family in 2012.  As you will soon see my girls don’t go far without me capturing them and when I say capture, I mean capture!  This is the cut down version of images I took in 2012 and there are 1500 in this little movie all made into a quick 5 minutes clip!

I hope you enjoy it!

If you would like one of these created for yourself this year then start snapping (and I mean really snapping) and then Fran can help you to create a gorgeous momento of your family at the end of the year!

The very clever Janet from The Cupcake Lady in Adelaide is featuring here today as my Monday Favourite!

Once again it was so hard to pick my favourite cake as they are all so beautiful but this cake says something to me with its simple elegance yet it has a definite theme. The sweet dessert table on top of the cake is just so perfect.

To see more of Janet’s lovely creations you can visit her website here or her facebook page here.
