one more week...

Only one more week and I'll be no longer the guest designer for CIS!! I've organised some photo's for the LO's I have to create. I didn't want to do them straight away as I wanted to find just the right photo's for them, so I'll be working on them this weekend. I'll upload them here as soon as they are on the CIS site. I'll miss it heaps, it is so much fun working with those girls, they are the best!!

I'm also LO pick of the week, woohoo!! It's just so lovely when you open the page to CIS and you see your LO as LO pick of the week :)))

This week I have been working quite a bit on my everyday moment journal. I really love it. it's only A5 so you can do quite a few pages in an evening. Here are some that I made this week.

I really should get on to making some pages (like lots) for Allan's album but I keep on being side tracked..

I taught a class on Tuesday night at Scrap The Lot, a stamping one and felt bag one. Was lots of fun. 2 of the ladies had previously booked into a felt bag and album class but because there were not enough people we got them to join in on the stamping class where I taught them the felt bag and album. I'm always a bit nervous before the class and at the beginning but relax once it's all rolling along. They must have enjoyed it because 5 of them booked in for another class that I teach so that was lovely! If you want to have a spot at one of the classes make sure that you book in quick as the class sizes are now a max of 6!!

I've been having a look at the kiwi scraps site and would so much love to go!! I've never been there but it looks like so much fun! If you've ever been please give me some more info. I know it's a bit expensive but I thought if I save up from now on, not spend too much on scrapping stuff I might be able to go. Then I'd also need a roomie at the hotel. So if you might be interested please let me know.

We went over to Allan's niece Emma and her husband Jol last week. They had a little girl a few weeks ago, her name is Sophie Ellen and she is just so cute!! Could have taken her home!! She fell asleep while I was holding her, that was so lovely! Here is the beautiful little bubba.

We done a bit of baking as well, some savoury muffins yesterday, a cake for trifle on the weekend and last week we made a hedgehog slice. Very yummy!. When Jolene was teaching a class wednesday night I had to use one of the photo's. I choose one of Lucy who is thoroughly enjoying her piece of slice LOL.

Lucy really knows now when I want to take a picture. I really have to make an effort not to get her lovely posing face. I love this gorgeous posing face though so I thought I'd better do a LO about it before she has a new one.

Marni Telford, a designer at CIS, made this gorgeous LO for me!! Love it so much, thanks heaps Marni!!

Guess that's all for today ! Hope to see lots of entries for the challenges at CIS, the monthly themed one (mine) and the stylish monthly challenge!!
Please leave a message when you visit, I would love to know who comes overhere, thanks!!
See you next time!
Happy scrapping!!

Wow, Manon you have been busy haven't you? Love the Everyday Moments journal idea, what a fantastic keepsake. And how quickly has your time at CIS DT gone. Can't believe the month is almost over.

Wowee you have been busy! Looks great. And how nice of Marni to scrap you a LO. Glad your classes went well - I have no doubt you'd be a great teacher! Take care and hope to catch up soon. x
