How exciting!!!!

Crop for Kids 2008 is underway!!!! The committee members have all been hard at work to get this happening early. There are lots of very very exciting things that are going to happen very very soon. As people who attended know....this years event was big....it was exciting...prizes were fantastic...everyone had a great time.....so for next years event...for those who are interstate or overseas and can't make it....we're bringing it to you!!! Yah....you now get the chance to support this fabulous fundraiser for the Royal Children's Hospital via online classes!!! First off is the fabulous Louise Spiden who will be doing her first class on the 20th September from 7.30 - 9.30pm. So please head on over to Crop for Kids blog to check out the details and the ever so delish sneak peeks!! The classes are a very affordable $10 and there is no kit to get, you get to use things which are already in your stash...which is great because every scrapbooker I know has a stash of photos and products to use in their every growing stash!!

I have been a busy little bee as usual.....let me try and recall.....

1. Got my hair done....wanted to cover up the greys epidemic...and I wanted some foils for highlights...told the hairdresser that I just wanted the foils a couple of shades lighter. Hah!!! What did I get....chocolate brown hair which I lurve.....and blonde foils. Not a great look for me! Fast forward to a week later...I went back and they fixed it for free. Yay!!

2. Migraines - I got hit with migraines this week....pretty bad...I just wanted to take tablets, curl up and die!!! A trip to the chiropractor really helped.....I'm much better now. Hate how debilitating migraines are!! The family had to make do with steamed rice and sunny side up eggs for dinner because I really couldn't cook.

3. Went to Felicity's house for a crop last Saturday night. It was sooo good to get out of the house to scrap. I haven't been out to scrap since Crop n chat which was ages ago!! As usual I chatted too much and ooogled everyone's work....investigated Felicity's stash....ate, drank....and did two half done layouts. Typical me!

4. OPAAT kit layouts. This is the gorgeous gorgeous September kit. Head on over to One Page At a Time and check out the kit. It is absolutely gorgeous. The first 4 layouts are done with the kit. The stamp is absolutely delish and I stamped with the watermark ink pad which you must get if you haven't got it. The top two layouts are of my gorgeous niece Shania and the two just under this sentence are some old photos of Jeromel.....yah....working through my box of unscrapped photos!!
The next layout was done a while ago...at Scrap n Chat...I don't know why...but I forgot to share it...came home...put it in an album and forgot all about it!! Yeah...it's Jeromel at 10 months old being a very very reluctant reindeer. I was very into dressing him in Osh Kosh when he was little....don't you just love the stripey Osh Kosh bib???This is a layout which I half did at Felicity's place. It's of Jeromel and how he put a hole through the knee of reinforced tracky daks in a week. Yah...one week...through 3 layers of tracky material. I haven't done a layout like this in a while...and I totally love it...it's very me...lots of 7 gypsies stickers, epoxy stickers, bits and pieces and brads in a circle.

I think that's about it....I've got a Scrapping Angels kit to work on....and then an Arty Pants kit and before I know it....OPAAT kit will arrive too!!! Thought I'd post a little piccie.....of my pandora bracelet and my nails!
Those who have met me or know me irl will be very surprised that I have long nails....why? I'm not very girly...I usually have short nails.....I'm a no fuss kind of person.....like unstyled hair, no make up....jeans....simple top.....that kind of person. But once in a while....I like to grow my nails...and when I have long nails....I will paint and decorate my nails. I will do this until one of the nails break......and then I cut them all short.....and then might not grow my nails for 6 months or more. But right now....I have pretty nails....which I did myself...so I'll capture the moment. Like my pandora bracelet? It's filling up quite quickly!!! Love the glass bead....I think I'll keep my colours to red and green and silver. Pretty! Due to some miscommunication....I ended up with another Pandora bracelet....so if anybody wants a 21cm authentic silver pandora bracelet with the barrel clasp.....please let me know!
