As mentioned yesterday I worked at Paperdoll today, I haven't worked during the day for a few weeks so it was great to catch up with a few of the regulars who popped in throughout the day. Even Wendy popped in for a surprise visit as she had left the all important paperwork behind yesterday DOH!!!!!!!!!!
I'm back tomorrow night to teach the brand new Scraptech attachments class. Its so nice to be teaching new classes making it all fresh and new is not only exciting for the students but especially for the teacher as well. Next week is the last class in the series with the July Scraptech starting 16th July which is a Monday night.
Nothing to share today I still haven't finished the layout I started over the weekend that is my plan for this evening after I clean up after dinner. Greg's coming over for the regular Tuesday night catch up with Neil and a few games of pool. I'm sure most of the talk tonight will be about last Friday nights football match between Richmond and Melbourne reliving the big win (and only win so far this season) of Richmond. GO THE TIGES!!! It was good to hear the theme song after so long.

In other news I headed down to spotlight they had a 20% off sale today. Howeverthat's not why I went down there. I was in search of some velvet ribbon to go onto a christmas layout I'm doing. (christmas I hear you say... at this time of the year) well when inspiration strikes you have to go with it. Anyhoo I headed to Paperdoll with a latte for Wendy after that; and guess what she had the perfect velvet ribbon there from american crafts. I'll share when i've finished. So I will be working at Shop all day tomorrow for Wendy so she can stay at home and get some of her bookwork completed. In other shop news Wendy and I have finished designing three new scraptech classes for Paperdoll. They look fantastic pop into the shop to have a look we have them in 12x12 and 8 1/2 x 11 format. Boy and girl versions and also Kim Campbell has just finished her version of the attachment class it looks fantastic. Here's a sample of the three classes. Check out the Paperdoll class Blog for times and dates.
mmmmm think I'm going to have to work out how putting photos in actually works. Because as I type the new post, how it looks on my screen and then how it looks when I publish the post looks totally different.

Scrapbooking is my passion (er der!!) I'm not a fast scrapper and can procrastinate over a layout for hours... sometimes days. Hence I'm useless at crops I just end up talking (something I'm pretty good at) I need to be in my own little space making one unholy mess with all my supplies around me to be productive.
For those who don't know me I am married to Neil (18years) and we have one child Madeleine who has just turned 12 and you will soon discover 90% of my layouts are of her. I work at a scrapbooking shop Paper Doll Scrapbook Boutique and also teach classes.
I don't know if it's just me but do other people with children of this age find their weekends are now not there own but the children now have a better social life? This weekend has gone something like this:-
- FRIDAY NIGHT: School disco 7pm- 9pm, which meant prior to the event straightening her hair, putting on your funky new clothes and making sure the accessories and makeup were just right. She looked absolutley gorgeous see photo.
- SATURDAY NIGHT: Friends rollerskating party. One of Madeleine's good friends (Laura) was celebrating her 12th birthday. The party started at 6.30pm and went until 9pm.
- SUNDAY: Five students from Maddy's primary school were invited to attend a Free all day writers workshop from 9.30am to 4.30pm in Kooyong. So Neil kindly volunteered to take the girls in which was very good of him as it was absolutley FREEZING this morning. I believe it was 5 degrees when they headed off. Anyway I digress Madeleine sent me a text message during morning tea to say the workshop was awesome so that made me happy for her. She loves to write stories and has come home all inspired and has written drafts for 2 stories so far. I must say they sound pretty good and well constructed so far, she has a great imagination and a real way with words. She is now hoping to be published one day. As I say everything possible will happen. I heard the little gem on the plane on the way home from Kiwiscraps Freestyle in April.
So as you can see our weekend has pretty much been taken up with being a Taxi. Don't get me wrong I really don't mind. I love the fact that she enjoys participating in things and having a good time. She's a bit of a social butterfly just like her dear old Mum.
Anyway I'm sure that's enough for my first post I did warn you I could waffle and so I have. I'll leave you with a two layouts I have finished in the last week. Both of them are of Maddy and her friends. The one titled BFF was completed for the Scrapbooking sketches Aussie style website this is my version of Melissa Goodsell's sketch. I love Melissa's style.
Then the next one is just a because layout. Beacuse I liked the photos, I think they really show the girls for who they are. Just plain WACKY
If you've made it all the way to the end of this well done! and thanks for looking.
