A bit excited..

My first sub to Stamping and Papercraft and I got a card accepted! Sent it off about last April and forgot about it and it was published in this month's mag! woo hoo. I never usually sub to the card mags and I make a card after every LO with the scraps.
Scraptacular hosted Nic Howard in a weekend choc full of classes.  Naomi, Danielle & I decided to book in for the Saturday classes.  The classroom at Scraptacular is just brilliant, so big and roomy and perfect to host these classes.
Our first class was 3 LO in two hours!!!!



I have to add a bit of journaling and dates but they are pretty much finished!  I was really happy to have completed them all (bar a little tweaking) Usually if I don't finish in the class, I rarely come home and finish it!
We had a beautiful lunch and then straight on to the second class a little mini book.  It didn't really grab me at the start but I shortened the length of mine and by the time I finished it I loved it.  We used the prima printed cardboard and made a groovy little pocket thingy for the back and I will used that technique again.

We had to leave half way through the 3rd class which was a beautiful double LO with a summer theme and I definitely will complete THAT LO!
will show it at a later date when I complete it.

The scrapper in me COULDN'T resist a photo with Nic and the girls!
Then we raced off to my boy's basketball finals.....

Aden played his last ever U18 domestic basketball game.  After a bit of controversy, he played in the grand final and they won by 10! a fitting end.
Lachlan, however wasn't that lucky..... This team have gone through the season undefeated and LOST the grand final.

Don't know what happens to them BUT this is the THIRD time this has happened!  They were disappointed but there is always next season.

*****************************

A few people have asked if I could show LO from a few posts back.  Sorry about that! didn't know anyone actually read this blog 'cept my mum! lol anyway here it is.

more soon......
