Libby's Tag

This is a great idea. The Bazzill and Coredinations that has been bugged and sanded were bought from Cropworks. As well as the brads.
The verse on the back is another Helen Keller one.
The most beautiful things in the world are not seen nor touched. They are felt with the heart.

Glenda's Tag

Here is another tag made by Glenda for our September Tag swap. Those Chinese Proverb are so good.

These Chops were purchased from Cropworks. So was the chain and lugs. This comes in gold also.

Treehouse Memories

This is just a simple card I made the other day using one of my favourite papers from Treehouse Memories.
I have also used cardstock from SALT and the Fiskars slimline punch. these punches are so good. They are so easy to use also.
I used a Crafter's Workshop stencil for the sentiment and a Fiskars brad for the star.

Glenda's Tags

This is the tag Glenda made for October. It is a lovely tag and the verse is so beautiful. I love Helen Keller's inspiration. She shows us we can do anything with determination and belief in ourselves.

Make & Take - Amie and I

This is a make and take I did at a crop yesterday. The crop was to raise funds for Riverstone Community Church Playgroup and was just fantastic. For $20 we got a 10 hour crop, afternoon tea (fresh homemade scones, chocolate fudge slice, homemade carrot cake, cheese and biscuits and a fruit platter), dinner (choice 0f 3 mains with baked vegetables and garlic bread plus dessert which was a choice of 6 items or you could have a taster plate with 4 small portions of different desserts) plus tea and coffee. It was great and Mel Rae did a fantastic job of catering, organising and running the event - Thanks Mel.
Rose-Anne had the mobile Cropworks Shop there as well and conducted this make and take class. It needs a title but I want to do a second page to go with it so I'll wait until I have done that page and then decide on a heading and maybe some journaling too.
This layout would also make a great Christmas layout.The patterned cardstock is  available ony from Cropworks and the white is sort of a bumpy texture and really beautiful to work with. It's from Salt. All items are available from Rose-Anne at Cropworks.

Don't you love the surprised look on Libby's face. She is such a camera shy person.
It was Liana's birthday and Maree bought her a cake. Don't you love the surprised look on Liana's face?

Last weekend we had our monthly crop and we did some raffles for Breast Cancer. So far we have raised $189 from the raffles. Jessica my granddaughter had a lovely time making her mini album with me.
We had to wear pink and if we didn't we were fined.

$15 for each session but a combination of sessions is $25.

Friday Lunch is bring a plate and we will share.

Saturday Lunch is also bring a plate and we will share.

All morning, afternoon teas, supper and tea and coffee will be provided by me.

There will be a scrapbooking lesson on each occasion, a card design and a technique for each session. All sessions will have different lessons.

A gold coin donation will be required if you don't have something pink on your body.

There will also be some fun activities to join in if you want to.

Please come and bring a friend and support this worthwhile cause.

10% of all sales this weekend will go to Breast Cancer Awareness.

September Crop at BH

This weekend gave us another great crop at Beaumont Hills. We are a sharing and caring group. It was my birthday last week and Glenda and Libby made sure I had celebrations both on the Friday night and the Saturday. What special friends they are. We also made many things including 2 different mini albums, cards and page layouts that I will share this week.
Then there is the Tag swap we are doing. I have new ones to add to this blog this week also.
If you would like to know more about these crops please contact me and join a wonderful group of lovely ladies.
Did I mention the laughter and the teasing that goes on. Nobody has a thin skin in the group as we all bounce off each other and as we know laughter is the best medicine.
