Lots to share

Pics and some scrapping too.
As promised here is one of the many pics Craig took of Asher went they went out to the aircraft museum last week. She had a ball and in a few of the other pics Craig took she was walking around with a clipboard getting some help from Craig doing a work sheet.and I couldn't help but take a pic of Reenie last night as Asher covered her up in an Aussie scraf while she was sleeping in her favorite sleeping spot near the heater. Asher was so cute while I was taking the pics she was singing she's an aussie sleepy cat.
What's been happening over at Therapy?
Well over the weekend we had a small cyber party for the crowning of the new MBM. Yeah Mandy. Congrats girl and welcome to the dt as a guest for the next few months. Congrats also to Carol and Deb who came in second and third and to all the girls who entered into the challenges. What's a party with out a few games hey. Well not games but just for fun challenges. Narelle and I set challenge for the girls over the weekend and PT ran a class too.
My challenge was to make a congrats card and I was a little sneeky and made up my sample to pop into the Hero Arts blog for the wrap around card challenge. I also took some pics along the way and put up a step post in the forum if you want to have a try at doing one yourself.
Here is the frontThe middle, the brad is attached to a tag for a messageand the backand if you feel like giving a free class a try check out PT's So you think you can drive class. I have some other goodies that I have done for therapy but alas I can't share just now as they are for some dt stuff next month. One of which is my cyber crop sample. Yeap it is that time again girls. Next week we will be cc. Clues will be going up tomorrow and Cate has already started her usual singing countdown. I guess it also means I'll have to russle up some goodies from my stash for a guessing game on Friday night then.
As most of you may know by now the very talented Belinda has stepped down from the dt and as she was running this years calendar class Nat has taken it over rather than let it fold so to speak. Here is my page from the class more pics from the aircraft museum trip.Lee ann has been busy with the shop and has got in some new stuff and a little birdie told me that some MME will be haeding our way soon too.
What's been happening at home?
Well I've been busying doing some non Therapy scrapping lol. Sounds funny saying that as scrapping is my Therapy.
Any I have done another layout for STM but can't show that just yet. I so can't wait to share with you all tomorrow my page for next weeks song as it is a fav of mine. I hope you can come along and play with me and thanks to those few who have.
Over at The scrapbook shelf Trudi posted the 2nd challenge forthe slice of life comp. To scrap a layout with a picture. lol If I had ESP I wouldn't of scrapped my angel a week or so ago but I managed to pull it of with a layout on how fussy Asger is getting with what she will wear. Boy it is a drama and it is getting to the point where I can't just buy her anything without her being there.

Trudi and the girls also had a FNF on as well. Boy was I busy on Friday night going between two parties so to speak. My fingers sure did get a work out. lol
The challenge for that was to get inspiration from an add anddo a 12 by 12 page. I worked on my page on Friday night in between chatting at both parties and had finished it but wasn't that happy with it. Rather than leave it as it was I decided to add some stamping to it and stuffed it up. So I ended up turning my 12 by 12 into a 6 by 12, mounting it onto another 12 by 12 base and then salvaging what I could from the bad 6 by 12 and adding it to the new 12. In the end I totally love how it has turned out.
For those of you that are locals here is a sneek peek at a layout that I will be teaching at Just scrapbooking next Sunday. It will be my first ever face to face class and I am so nervous about it. And missy Christine you had better be on your best behaviour or else. No heckling. lol You know I love you don't you.

I also had some good news durring the week. My beach layout I did for last week HA challenge got an honourable mention as I now have got another catolgue heading my way along with a new never been seen xmas stamp. Wahoo

Well I think I haven't forgotten anything and if I have well it probably wasn't important

Till next time thanks for popping in and any comments that you may leave.

Happy scrapping and hope to see you all in Therapy.
