Happy Australia Day for Thursday! I hope you had a fun day those of you who celebrated! We had some friends over for pizza, pool and ice cream. I really enjoyed emerging from newborn-world, and getting my craft on! I pottered about designing some printables and pulling a few props together, most of which I had on hand (which is lucky as I haven't mastered getting out by myself with two children just yet).
I know it may sound a little bit 'bogan', but I actually love the Southern Cross. I was inspired completely by this shoot I shared last year. I needed some other signage for our little get together, so there are a few more themed Australia Day freebies for you at the end of this post that work in with their invites and other printables. A little last minute addition were these fun fans for each person - it was so humid, they came in handy!

And Australia Day is not complete without a dip in the pool! Fun times!
Here are the links to the free Australia Day printables for you. I know it's a little late for this year, but file them away for your next 26th January festivities!

  1. Your inspiration of the Southern Cross is NOT bogan in the always, your party demonstrates class and elegance all the way.

    What is bogan is when some elements of our population use our Southern Cross as a literal and metaphorical cover for behaviour which is crass, racist and, even, illegal. Thank you for sharing these most beautiful printables and it's lovely to see you had an enjoyable day. xx

  2. Simple yet stylish! Love it Jordan x

  3. great issues altogether, you simply received a {logo new|a new} reader. What might you suggest about your post that you simply made a few days in the past? Any positive?
