Sunday, August 17, 2008


Grab a coffee and get comfy as seeing I missed my usual Sunday post last weekend this is a biggy.
I was away last weekend retreating and I had a ball. My partners in crime for the weekend, Jane, Christine and I all had a ball in our costume for the dress up night and we won a prize too. On the Thursday before we headed out we went over the Christine's place for a dress rehersal then on down to a park near her for a few pics.
Here is one of them that Asher just had to be in.and a one from Saturday night too.
Here is what I did while there bar one as it is for DT work.
A layout of Jane's grandson. lol Using some of the Wonderous world papers by Dasiy Bucket. That you can find in Therapy.
A layout of Asher having fun on an old tractor at a park we went to on Easter Sunday. Using some gorgeous Kaiser papers and some cork which was a product we needed to use as part of a challenge.
A layout of Asher at the aircraft museum last school holidays. One of the challenges we to do was this stripy paper they supplied on a layout.Several cards for the hero Arts colour challenge. All that mange to use as aprt of the challenge for extra tickets in the raffle, not that they did me any good.
Altered tin that I did up for Therapy. There is a link to the forum further on to where you can see Relsi's and PT's tins and would you believe it both PT and I started out making our tins to give to our little girls, changed our minds and kept them for ourselves as bling boxes.
When I got home I sorted out my stuff and Asher wanted to dress up in my costume so I let her do so on the condition that I could get some pics so we went outside and had a mini phoot shoot. lol if you call 40 odd pics mini. Here are two favs.
Even though she has her eyes closed on this I like the way the trampoline has caught her refelection and when the weather warms up I may even head out to the beach for some pics only a scrapper would do that.
Here are my Hero Arts cards for this weeks sketch challenges. Using some of the new Dasiy Bucket yummies from Therapy again.
Before I went away I needed to get my Shelf slice of life challenge layout done and this is what I did for last weeks and here is this weeks. Boy has that five weeks gone fast.
What's been happening in Therapy.
a whole lot.
The girls and I posted some steps post for our first regular step post weekend.
You can find my post here, Relsi's here and PT's here. You can also see Relsi's and PT's tin, with mine too in here.
Dont forget that Daisy Bucket is man of the month and on special in Therapy. It is gorgeous paper to work with.
And last but by no means least my layout for the STM blog last week.

Well I think that has just about covered it all.

Thanks for sticking around through a big post, if you have, thanks for any comments that you may leave and till next time happy scrapping and hope to see you in Therapy.

Class photo and pages too

Well I had fun today teaching my first face to face class. I was a bit nervous at first but that all went and the girls seemed to have fun too.

Here they are working away.

And here is the double layout I taught. My first for the year as I don't do many these days.

and seeing as I had some of the striped and giraffe papers left over I did a single sample in pink as well.
We were cyber cropping this weekend over at Therapy. Here is my sample page for the challenge I set.and if you pop on over to Therapy you will see that Lee anne's comp that I posted about in the last post has been carried over for the rest of the month. All the details can be found in here. Spread the word as the size of the pizza box on offer at the end of the month all depends on how many hits theTherapy home page gets.
I managed to do my round 3 slice of life challenge layout too. It wasn't what I was going to scrap as the pics I took of my kitchen bench in action didn't turn out all that well so I had to change my idea but just love the result. Oh and a big thanks to Camcas over at Therapy. You pizza box of goodies arrived a few days before and you can spot of few of the yummies on this page.

Well that's about it for tonight. Will be back tomorrow with my page for the next STM challenge. Till then thanks for popping in, any comments you may leave, happy scrapping and hope to see you all in Therapy.

Want to be in the running to win some goodies

Well pop on over to Therapy join us, pop in and say hello and help to spread the word.
Lee anne has got a box of new CHA goodies that is just begging to be given away.
Here is the details.
Hi girls I am here and here is my first challenge for the weekend I have a prize pack, the value of the pack will be decided by you guys. So far since I have been Therapy Mum the most hits we have had on any one day is 168 (from different ip addresses). The value of the prize pack will start at $16.80 and will increase by $10 for every 100 hits the site gets above and beyond 168 on any given day, in other words if on Saturday we get 1068 independant hits the value of the pack will be $106.80. Just in case someone knows something I dont about increasing hits however the prize will be limited at $200.00. You can see how our hit count is going by clicking the Scraplounge icon at the bottom of the page. EVERYONE who posts any post in any of the cybercrop links over the weekend will go into the draw to win this pack. It will be a random draw. ANYONE who posts can win, so if you are here make sure you at least say hello. On Sunday night we will be announcing our new MANUFACTURER OF THE MONTH for August. I cant tell you who it is but I can tell you that the products in the prize pack are ALL NEW CHA RELEASES from that manufacturer. To record a hit, all we have to do is pop ANYWHERE into the site and have a look - so tell everyone you know to pop in, including but not limited to --- your Mum and Dad, your live away from home kids, your friends, your penpals and all the other people you know who have internet connections and even the ones you dont. All I ask is that you dont offend any other scrapping sites by posting links on their forums. So start telling your friends and we will see how we go!!!
