I just love my life at the moment. I'm tired as all hell, but I'm scrapping and chatting and making headway with the fundraiser....so it's all GOOD!
I'm so excited to be going to the Alex Perry lunch on Friday. Convinced Michael to work from home because it's school holidays now and hard to find anyone willing to look after the boys for a whole day. I've been tossing up which frock to wear as I have the "Sing for Kids" in October as well as a black tie function for Michael's work in October, so can't double-up on the frocks (heehee) and I'm not allowed to buy a new one :-(
The scrap fundraiser for AEIOU Bray Park is still ticking along. Have a few more sponsors and other generous scrappers giving of their time or talent. Can't reveal names yet until I secure a date and have a firm commitment. Life is just too unpredictable and I don't want to embarrass anyone if they pull out. It WILL be in May 2008 so people should start saving their pennies now. And it WILL be close to my home, so start finding out where I am and lock the suburb on your GPS.
Round 3 entries for the Scrap Therapy DT Position #5 are in. Guess who was the last one to upload??????
Okay, it was me...but I got the layout uploaded before the absolute deadline of the 25th, so I should get points for that!! It was a product challenge with AL papers and bits and pieces. Here's the GALLERY and the standard is awesome. The finalists going into Round 4 have to run an online class. I'm not sure if I'll get in but I'd better get my thinking cap on now, just in case. I'll have to hassle some "online class veterans" (you know who you are....heehee) for some tips. Wish me luck...or better still, if you are a Scrap Therapy member, email Natalie and give me 3 points!!!!
Sonia has me busy at Forever Always. The DT kit was HUGE!! Lots of BG Mellow papers, cardstock and a gorgeous Delish embellishment kit. Here's the link to the first lot of projects for her mid-month inspiration
and the October Newsletter is going to be fantastic. Lots of great ideas for off the page with Basic Grey. Out soon, so no uploads yet of those, sorry, rules you know!!
The Cyber Crop is still open till the end of the month. It's a KITCHEN theme this month LOL. I've finished Challenge 4 which is the Photography Challenge
and the 5th challenge which was to alter an item for the kitchen
There is just 2 more layouts to do and a sketch challenge with NO PHOTOS. Piece of cake!!
If you love working with patterned paper, I have a Patterned Paper Challenge happening at Bon's Scraps. Follow the criteria and upload by Wednesday 25th (that's tomorrow LOL) and you could win something new from Bon. She's got something so special, even I don't know what it is!! Here's my effort
So, YES. I've been a busy girl with the scrapping and the "LIFE" busy-ness. Not to mention the fab-o class with Ngaire Bartlam at Inkredible on Saturday!! Nearly finished that one in actual class time....AMAZING! Ngaire's just too wonderful and Nicole (The Craft Queen) is good company too. If you are good with ribbon (read= not me!!) then she has a DT opening!! But not me, you all know (as Nicole does) how hopeless I am with the ribbon stuff!!!!
BE STONG...and enjoy life.
