PS Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments you left for me in regards to the May Arts blog hop, I have had a lovely time reading them all.
Here is my Layout for the May Arts and Graphic 45 Blog hop. I was too late in sending it to Graphic 45 to be included in the hop and I am so sorry for letting them down.
I receive a lovely bag of May Art ribbons to play with and decided to use them on a layout along with Graphic 45's new Paper Range " A Ladies Diary". The May Arts Lace was not quite the shade of pink I needed. So I dyed it using Tim Holtz's Distress reinkers.
I found that 3/4 of a cup of hot water and two full eye droppers of ink gave me the perfect shade.
I am finally home, having had an amazing trip teaching Graphic 45 Classes in Brisbane. I taught 9 classes over the weekend to over 250 ladies then other two classes in two local scrapbooking stores. While I was away we had very limited Internet access and some where along the way I missed an email in regards to this blog hop. About Graphic 45:

It's frantic here at the moment with my husband and myself leaving in four days time to drive to Brisbane for the Papercraft expo. I still have some spots left in my Monday classes for anyone wanting to attend. I have over 270 kits done and have boxes everywhere. I am teaching at a couple of stores in Brisbane afterwards as well.
Thursday, Graphic 45 posted a layout of mine with a full tutorial on their blog. I have not had time to post here yet. It is one I did on Diane and myself, before I lost 10kg. It was taken at CHA last year. I took lots of photos at CHA this year, but my camera was playing up and I am not happy with them. I will be selling this as a kit with instructions at Seriously Scrapbooking in a few days. It was a delight catching up with Diane again and spending some time with her after CHA. She is a very special person. So kind and generous, my time spent with her is a treasured memory. Visit Graphic 45's Blog for the full tutorial if you would like to have a go at making this layout.
I will post some dates and sneak peeks of the two classes I am teaching in Brisbane after the expo over the weekend.
Off to do some creating, I have 11 projects to do before Tuesday! Including my first book tutorial for Graphic 45 and two projects for 3L Scrapbooking Adhesive. I also have three commission pieces for a magazine, and another set of patchwork squares. I am teaching Saturday, with a wedding in the afternoon, Sunday Service on Sunday with my sons 20th birthday party in the afternoon. If anyone knows how to get an extra day in between Saturday and Sunday - please let me know!
