Monday classes

Here are two classes from the last two Mondays. Last week we created a Christmas stocking.
This is the front and you can place a voucher or money in the inside as it has an opening in the top, just slip  it right into the middle what a great gift or something to hang on the tree. 

This is the other side. The girls had so much fun making these they want to make more as gifts.

The week before we finished making a birthday book from scratch it took two Mondays to finish but we all enjoyed making them.
So here it is....
This measures about 6x6 inches square and you have 12 pages with a pocket at the bottom for a tag to remind you of who's birthday it is one for each month.

This is the inside, each are decorated differently but all have pockets, the flap with the month lifts up to show the pocket. This is very simple but turned out really nice.

I am Back

Hi everyone sorry I have had a bit of time off. I am back now and ready to roll. October was a very happy and also a very sad month for me. On the Happy Note my son Michael and his long time girlfriend Phebe finally got married on the 6th October. It was such a lovely day they got married at the Roslyn Bay Resort in Yeppoon, they married in the garden along side of the pool. All the family where there Aunts Uncles cousins brothers and sisters and a lot of extended family, we had such a good time.
This is a lovely photo of us all Mum Dad and the kids.

 Michael his Grandma, and Great Aunty Cheryl they had arrived in one of the Mustangs, Michael had organised for the bridal party.
Now the beautiful couple Michael and Phebe Chelepy
Now on the sadder note my Dad was put into hospital a week before the wedding and could not come so we took the wedding party to him, he was so happy he even cried as did all of us.
Now on an even sadder note my dad passed away on the 15th October nine days after the kids where married all he wanted was to make it for their wedding he was so proud of them and we wipped tears away from his eyes. He could not talk as the cancer had spread rapidly from his lung through his body and organs. We all new he was a happy man. RIP Dad loves ya heaps.....

A week at Roma

We attended the State Skeet Championships in Roma last week and Laurie did very well for himself. He is No2 in the open team, No1 in the veterans team to attend the Skeet Nationals in Wagga next year. He also came home with another 3 red ribbons and a number of medals for his troubles. While he shot I created in our little home away from home our caravan. The weather was beautiful a bit cold in the mornings like 4 degrees brrrr. But I put up with that snuggled up in bed with the cat along side of us. lol.... Roma gun club has a stock route along side of ti and a big mob of cattle heading for the meat works came in for a drink. Here are some photos.

Out west is so dry they need rain desperately.

 This is our camp lucky we had a bit of shade in the carpark.

 And the boss of the camp. She sorted out the birds put all them in line(let them know who was boss)

Aussie Scrap Source - A good Friend

This challenge was taken from and guess what yahoo yepee I have been published on their blog and so has Mar. So go and check us out. We had to do our own take on our project using either washi tape, vellum or glitter tapes. I used washi tape on my page.

Product I have used:
Prima lyric collection (overture and tempo)
washi tape, assorted prima flowers, light bulb, buttons and alphas.
I also had to do a short tut on how I did this page. Yeh right easier said then done. So here goes.....
First of all I tore up the overture paper and adhered it to the tempo paper across the middle, then added some washi tape and white washed it with gesso. Matted the phot of Sharon and placed where I wanted it and then used a prima crackle mask and texture paste either side of the photo.I then placed flowers and embellies around and sprayed with shimmerz manderine mai tai and egg noggin.

Fasola, blue bayou, love tags and quilter.
Also I have used some of the chipboard pieces and journaling stickers from the same range.
