I have beens o busy with school, home and scrapping that i haven't had a chance to get on here and do my blog. It is my wedding anniversary today-28th August, Briana nd I have been married for 24 years. We went to a Thai Restaurant for dinner. Was a nice night.

Saturday we had a crop at Pecky's like we do every month. I did a make a take class on a notebook for Dad for father's day and it was a success. I am going to make them with the kids at school on Wednesday.

I had Jess here for the night and day and we had a good time like we usually do. She kept on telling me she loved me. I love that. We did 3 scrapbook pages. How many 3 yr olds do you know that can scrap for ages without getting bored. Mel and I went to the Stitches and Craft Fair yesterdsaya nd we took Jess and she was going around singing " I'm a scrapbook Diva"" with all the actions etc-ladies were laughing and smiling everywhere-it was cute.

Have to get and take some photos of my Los and books etc. Will do soon.

Recently my yahoogroup called Cropworks did a monogram swap. I am in the middle of getting them scanned and put on this site. Below are the monograms Amanda submitted and next are the ones i did. Mine were done on handmade paper and machine embroidered and the rest can be seen.

How nice is Amanda's hair. I think it suits her.

Where has the time gone? I have been so busy that I haven't been able to get on here. Last weekend Melanie and I did a scrapbook day as a fundraiser for her church playgroup. They need new flooring and it costs heaps. So we had a scrapbook day and raised some money. We gave 10% of all sales from our business and the cost of the day was also used. A few of my friends kindly gave some lucky door prizes and we did too. It is so nice to see the generosity of some people.
We will be doing another one of these days this year so if anybody reads my blog and lives in Sydney and would like to go please contact me.

I have a few photos to share-i must take some photos of my layouts as I have done lots. I did a make a take class at the crop on Saturday and the camp a few weeks ago and they went well. i was pleased with the comments from the ladies who did my classes.

A friend in USA submitted alayout of hers which had a chipboard monogram I made for her and the layout was chosen to go on the website of an on-line scrapbooking magazine. i was tickled about that.

Then today when my daughter was at playgroup one of the mums said she was on a forum last night and they were talking about chipboard and my name came up as a person to contact. One never knows who is talking about you-I must be getting famous.LOL>
Must go to bed as I have a biology excursion to go on tomorrow and there is quite a lot of walking.

I will try and be more talkative and sharing soon. i just have to get less busy====yeah right and tha tis going to happen.
