I am in a scrapping FRENZY! I spent much of yesterday and today scrapping like mad in the studio and I want to share it all - but I can't!! :(
Firstly Scrapneeds is doing kits (but you already knew that right?!) and we are changing how we are doing things, so now you can buy step-by-step to complete a layout using the kit, so I am scrapping yesterday with a camera around my neck taking all sorts of shots of each step etc (now my scrappack girls will know all about my step-by-steps!!!) and I really had to dig into my OLD stash of photos for a photo of a boy!!! (Shoulda sent out a call for boy photos a little earlier!) anyway, I really dug the Sept kits - both of the them! Fun playing, and stitching and generally having the best fun you can by yourself (!) and I am really happy with the results! SO if you interested in these little snippets.... head over to HERE and buy a kit and instructions!!!
AND in other scrapping news.... Scrap-pack girls... I have already finished the step by step layouts for this pack! (*snaps* for me!) and will try and add them to our little private gallery later in the week! But for now... here are a couple of the finished layouts.
And I am loving spotlight again! They are now stocking "Cloud Nine Designs" and I am LOVING this brand! This is some of the stuff I picked up recently - cheaply priced (I've heard stores think it's $$$ to buy) but as they can buy in mass, it's coming to us cheap! Even better when they have the VIP sale on scrapping. SO I have decided to use this brand for our next studio class which will be NEXT week - Thursday night the 21st Sept - email me for details! And I am only taking 6 for this class as I will repeat it the following week too!
I used the cloud nine design stuff for the layout I did for my new bud Alli's fundraiser - congrats cheeky babe on the money raised - over $1800 for Autism - *snaps* for Alli! (can I just say - this layout was a half hour job just before I had to run and post it last Wednesday - and it was hard to post it, as I really liked and had the perfect photo to add too! :)
So Saturday we wake up to torrential rain! I mean it was bucketing down - terrible weather - so I have the bright idea to take most of my tribe for an hour's drive to Erina just to check out this chocolate cafe!! Yep - MAX BRENNER - we love you! the best morning tea/ lunch we've had in a while, so while the divine Miss M spent one on one time with man of the house, Lolly, T-bird, Milly and I shared a table full of all things chocolate, classic comment came from Milly "mmmnnnnn - Mumma - these chocolately chocs are just yummo, can I have some of yours?" and then "yours?" and "yours?" - that's right folks - she made her way through all our treats! We then "stumbled" around Erina fair for a few hours, till Milly fell asleep so we could get groceries before hitting the freeway for the hour drive home again! There is something a little unsettling about shopping in a supermarket away from home!
AND it's official I have the cheekiest, monstrous 13 month old on the planet - this is her favourite new "trick" and boy does she do it well, AND in the right context too - example? "Marnie, get down from the top of the cupboard" (she turns around and I get this same face), Hiding in the firewood alcove at Mum's "Marnie, get out from there" straight back at Nanny came this face! Funny thing was Mum told her off a bit and Marnie looked at and burst into a flood of tears! Mum looked at me and told me off - obviously I had been encouraging the child by laughing at her little antics - OK! I admit it - it's true! But who wouldn't laugh at a baby doing this face (and then getting the camera out to capture it!)
And my big girl Lolly won a library award during Bookweek - here she is looking proud of herself! (and dressed as the witch from Narnia) T-bird made a paper mache puppet last week too, it's a gorgeous nurse - as t-bird wants to be one when she grows up (great - she can take care me in my old age! LOL!) But I will have show you later as it's not photographed!
