Computers and Blogs
I have finally found 5 minutes with the computer behaving so I can Blog!!!
Somewhere in the Blog World they changed everything (must have been a MAN!!!) and my computer would not play the game....I sat here for 5 hours on Tues trying and trying to get the blog to accept "ME"
but no....it eventually meant I have to download the new Google Chrome, and I must admit I was very sceptical however I am impressed, It is so easy to use and the uploading of photos etc is very very easy (Must have been a WOMAN!). So here I am finally blogging again and some time this coming week you will be able to see what I have been playing with for Artfull Crafts....its going to be released over a couple of weeks as its quite full on..............................................well really who'd have guessed!
Sun and Fun
Anyway the week before last Trevor and Myself along with a very lazy Beagle headed for Cromwell loaded to the gunals with scrapping, bags, boxes, cuttlebugs, cutting matts and anything else that
"I might need to use" Trevor ended up getting the flu so that left Pippa and myself to enjoy some scrapping time....Oh yes thats right she just slept in the sun, and here is a great pic of her just waking up
She absolutely loves Cromwell and is a totally different dog up there, probably the lack of cats is the reason and the high fences might help as well.
Classes and Kits
This last round of Classes and kits which is happening this weekend in Dunedin and Balclutha features two
very special little people, the girly one is my Bosses little Grandaughter and I absolutely love this photo, she looks so angelic!
Her name is Alyssa
And this little beauty is Christopher with the Red Fingerless Gloves on that my Mum made for him, he loved those little gloves and wore them all the time
The Ladies here in Dunedin made both of them today and breezed through each of them so they are relatively easy layouts
$25 each and $5 freight (both with full colour instructions)
Letz know in the comment section if anyone would like one, as I only have 5 of each left
Ok hopefully this week has found everyone happy, healthy and scrapping up a storm,
Dont forget Daylight Saving tonight and Go the ALL BLACKS!

Very happy at the prospect of being able to work alongside such a talented bunch of Ladies

time for me to let you into a wee secret...this is the next class on the agenda and its a real wee honey!
In this class we are once again using the Graphic 45 Ladies Diary collection papers (Just cos we can....and I love them so much) I didnt think after the Once Upon a Springtime collection that Graphic 45 could do any better then they bought out the Little Darlings range and now this ...
WOW is all I can say...................Keep it up Graphic 45!
Anyway I procrastinate, this is the next class like I mentioned and its on the
25th August in Dunedin and 26th August in Balclutha.
Cost is $30 and $10 for Hall/tea/coffee etc.

This layout following is the last class one we did at the end of March. it had heaps of different elements to it and it was amazing to see what the ladies came up with, especially since some of the photos were older style and others were of adults not just babies and the layouts all came out really neat.
This following layout Miss Sophia and Her Mum - Sarah and 2 Grandmas (I think one might be a "Nana") This layout is using some of the new Prima Collection - Nature Garden, I lifted the wee fairy and also used one of their new vines. I love how the papers and photos have joined

Thought I would put up this layout for you all to see, it is very similar to the Prima January sketch I did earlier however I used this layout for the Ladies in my classes last weekend here and in Balclutha.
I wanted them to have a go at the paper lace around the circle and fussy cutting the flower vine,
which they all handled extremely well.
This layout seems to work well with any style photos but I think the black and white just finishes the layout off nicely.
This was usisng the Prima Printery Collection from last year.....cant wait for all the new papers and embellies to start hitting our shores!
Ok short and sweet this time,
have a great week and I will catch you later

I totally admire anyone that can put together a great sketch for others to follow and there is something mildly satisfying about seeing everyone get totally creative with the same item and how differently everything turns out...............so here is the sketch
Here are the 2 cards I came up with,
Note:- I have turned the sketch around for this card
and here is a close up of the wee bird on the flowers, isn't she gorgeous?
and this dreamy one.....
This one I am going to use for a friends wedding next weekend, I love the netting it gives the whole card a real pop!
Why not click the link below and head over to Stuck?! Sketches and see what they have been up to
Take Care and Have a great weekend...

In this layout I have used mostly papers from the
Prima - Printery Collection with one from the Prima -Romantique Collection along with a little bit of Tim and the title is from Imaginarium Designs.
What do you think......
The layout is of Little Sophia with her Mummy and Daddy during a family photo shoot and I was lucky enough to be given some photos to play with.
Isn't she a wee cutie!
Ok short and sweet, but I do have plenty more to upload over the next week so keep an eye out

where have they gone?
It feels like I went to bed in November and now woke up facing the end of January.....
So that means I have a lot of work to catch up on and classes to sort for the upcoming year
and looking at some of the sneak peeks for the CHA there is going to be some very nice bits and pieces for us to all play with and drool over this year......So
Stay awake People, I promise not to be AWOL again
and I also promise to be bringing you some very special classes and ideas over the next few months.
