its a bit frantic here at the moment!

"To be truly creative, you need to be able to make a big mess"

We have been flat out in the shop this week, 10 boxes arrived with all the new products. So it's been Christmas everyday. Have taught 4 classes this week as well, with another 2 tomorrow. So at the moment the girls are getting all the kits done for printblocks. Our chipboard arrived yesterday and I think it will have to go on the plane as hand luggage!

Time to Share Another Layout

This is of my favorite layouts. I did it for Graphic 45 as one of my 10 projects needed to make the 1st round for their design team. Its a page on my daughter Anna, I had a photo of her on a Merry-go-Round at Victor Harbor. She was 6 years old. I just love the photo, and it is very special. As a younger child she hated being on any thing that moved. Part of her early intervention included puting her on a board with 1/2 a ball under it. She would sit on it and I would tilt it from side to side, backward and forward. This taught her to move her body to counter the tilt and retain her balance. All the time spent with her paid off. By the time she was 12, she could jump up and down on a trampolen and skip with a skiping rope at the same time. In the photo she looked like she was enjoying herself, but not quite sure about it all. I used the stripe paper from the play time past collection. It's built up with foam tape, this creates a shallow shadow box. I can then add lots of bits to my page and start layering some of them. Frames on a page are my thing at the moment.

A sneek peek of one of my classes at Printblocks

Hi everyone,
I have been flat out doing instructions and taking photos for my classes at Printblocks. The classes are for people, who are customers of Printblocks. I am doing a layout using Graphic 45, a travel album which started out as a mini album and has taken on a life of its own and is now way to fat! and some cards. There are still some spots left, so if you want to do the classes at your local scrapbooking store, then check that they are attending.
I thinking of doing a Tim Holtz and taking some photos of all the kits I am putting together. I only have to get 105 organized and not the 100's Tim does.
I am really looking forward to teaching at Printblocks (Monday 30th).
thanks for looking.

My Master's projects have left.

I finally got my masters project off today, one whole day before the last day you could send your projects in - so me! And to cap it all off, Saturday night saw me starting my everyday project again. I had been working on something for a couple of months. But it just wasn't coming together for me. In between teaching two classes on Saturday, I decide to start again. After the shop closed I spent an hour wandering around and trying to sort out what I would do. Bolt of lightening hit and I was off. Choosing papers and embellishments for my project. I can't share any information with you, but I made it totally from scratch and I love it.
Now we wait and see.
All the best to everyone to has entered
PS Will let you know as soon as I hear anything!
