Woo Hoo...what a weekend...

27 November 2006

Well finally Saturday arrived...... the Riverland Scrapping day...... and I can honestly say it was the best day Ive had for ages. I cant say I acheived much...but I had so many laughs..... met some wonderful friends for the first time..... and just totally relaxed and had fun.
I was so thrilled that Allie (Scrapinallie) and Michelle (Scraphappy Mel)...made the journey...it was a long trip for each of these girls and I appreciate this very much.
We got some wonderful photos... most of mine I have squinty eyes....caused by too much laughter....I actually had an uncontrollable twitch in my cheek....and couldnt pull a serious smile if I tried...... so Ill share this one for now......Belinda ..you had better email me another please....lol So...here we are...from the Left..we have Charmaine, Allie, Michelle, Lisa, Mardi (squinty eyes), Belinda and Cheryl..... thanks for a great day girls.

I volunteered to take a class on the day..... and Im quite a beginner at taking classes...but the girls battled through my poor instructions and came up with some gorgeous layouts.....and even machine stitched on their layouts.... which was out of the comfort zone for a few of the girls.......here is one of Belinda stitching away on her gorgeous layout...
...and this is the example layout for the day..... mchine stitched stems and flower centres...... the layouts all ended up looking so different.... and just beautiful.

and me deep in concentration sometime throughout the day...lol...or perhaps more to the point....me trying to find something...thats lost under my huge pile of mess....I think I took out the trophy for the messiest workspace.

I also made a gorgeous little 'chip box'...so cute and a great little idea to fill with lollies or things as a gift....Lisa very kindly demonstrated this class......and I loved my effort....although I had no end of trouble scoring the fold lines...and mine ended up like a piano accordian from the side view...lol... pity it wont upload this morning...Ill try later.

and on other news.....
* Brent is still not home from schoolies.... should be home today...probably tired and cranky... with a bag full of filthy washing.... but it doesnt matter...as long as he is home safely.
*Im busy busy busy with some scrapbooking commitments.....loving them all...but busy none the less.
Well thats it for this morning ..... I need to get started on my day.... lots to do.
Take care...
Mardi x
