Hello! I couldn't do a scrapbook page for the girls without adding the Scribble set. I am amazed at how short of time it took me to do this one! Mind you, I had a little help from Sally, picking colours out about 6 weeks ago!!! And using the Stampin' Up! stamp set just seemed to tie into everything.
We are on a count down.... 8 nights to sleep until Bee starts school, and I type this with a big grin on my face, (I would be clapping my hands also if I could!!!). I am going to sign off, get the kids inside soon for a bath, book reading, bed and then hopefully I will have enough time to stamp tonight. Catch you later. Trace

Can you believe it... 10 more sleeps and my ragamuffin starts school!!! I am still deciding if I should be sad that the time has come or take pity on her teacher! Anyway, I am taking a few days off work to settle her into her new routine. Soooo you know what that means.... if the weather is crappy, I will be doing 6 hour stints of stamping (of course the housework will come first wink,wink). Hopefully I will have some new stamp sets to play with out of the new summer mini.
Best I get some sleep myself. Hey by the way... you girls are quite out there... you can leave comments occasionally and make me feel I am not alone!

I had a busy weekend again, Sat morning teaching my 8yr old how to speed shop for clothes!!! and I must say she did her mum proud!!! although my plastic card was getting rather warm by the end of it.! LOL. Then had to be home by 1pm to meet a group of ladies to help make 70 wedding invites. Then onto today... I really enjoyed doing two cards instead of the 10 I have been doing lately. And what makes it better is everybody else loving what they are doing. We did crayon resist for todays class. Here is one of the cards they did. Have a great week.

This Stampin' Up! set has to be one of my favorites at the moment. There's nothing better than when the house is quiet at night with everyone in bed, I can then get my goodies out and create. Although for some reason I have a 8yr old looking over my shoulder as I am writing this reading everything I am saying!!!!
I am so looking forward to the long weekend. I might even get stuck into my craft room and give it a good clean and change around... that's if the weather is crappy and I have no unexpected visitors ... otherwise I have a date with the weeds growing in my neglected garden!!!!
Time to get lunches ready for tomorrow... until next time...

As promised, a photo on what has been keeping me so busy!!! We had a full weekend doing these xmas cards. Lou and her hubby even came from Dannevirke... it was awesome to spend time with her. Between school visits with my youngest, full time work and Stampin' Up!, I really dont think there is enough time in the day. To top it off... I have a workshop planned for Friday night, then onto another busy weekend with a fresh lot of faces to do another stint on xmas cards on Sat and Sun! Phew!!!! Lucky Monday is a Stat Holiday... bit of R&R for this chickie babe!!

Hello. Yes I am still here! Haven't done any cards lately due to me trying to get an Egypt scrapbook done for my mothers birthday. FYI... still not finished and her BD was yesterday!!! Oh well I did try.
I was asked to do a card for a little 7 year old girl who has an inoperable brain tumor. She's in Starship at the moment and will be there for some time. I wanted something bright for her so I cased this card, using same colors as in this photo but instead of using this stamp I used the sheep stamp out of Farm Fever. that says "Are ewe doing OK" Sorry I didn't get a photo, but in this case I needed to give it away as soon as I had made it. I wish her all the luck.
Anyway, busy time this weekend. At Kindy Fundraiser this Friday night then on Sat and Sun on to Xmas one sheet wonder cards.... promise to take photos.
Must run. Trace
