Happy Autumn everyone. I love this time of year where it's a bit cooler and the leaves change colour... very nice :)

Anyone read "The Divine Comedy" by Dante? Chris got the game and he loved it so much. He now bought himself the 3 books and is reading them. I was very impressed!! It's so nice when a teenage boy surprises you in such a positive way!!

Next week I'll be teaching 2 card classes at my work for International Women's day. I made one card with a cute girlie paper piecing and one card with some stamping.
For my card challenge at ScrapBoutique I also made a card with a paper piecing. Here's my example.

This month I also host the monthly themed challenge. Because of International Women's Day I chose to create a LO about a woman I admire and love and gave that same challenge to the other girls. The other criteria is to use a quote for the title. I used one of Mother Theresa. Here is my example.Remember I told you about being flooded in during the retreat?? Well here is a piccie of the "flood". I have never been flooded in before so to me it was pretty special.

Drew, Melissa and Sophie moved last weekend to Canberra. So we can get to see them a whole lot more now. Sophie spend the whole Saturday with me and the kids while Allan helped them move. I was a bit nervous as Sophie cried a lot before every time I held here but she was absolutely gorgeous!! Such a happy fun gorgeous little girl!! And she stopped crying every time I held her so I was feeling all happy!! Here is the little princess being kissed by her Auntie Lucy lol.

That's it from me today. Hope you have a lovely rest of the week.

Happy Scrapping :)
