Crop, Kim Archer LO, Card and CC07

I haven’t posted during this week, I know! I have however been really busy doing bits and pieces and tidying (not cleaning) my house.

First cab off the rank are the table numbers for the Helping Hand Autism Crop on Saturday, I kind of dobbed myself in to do these by coming up with the idea and of course it was then my job to make them. (happily so I might add) The idea of the flowers I stole from the Paper Pesto blog and then added another fabric flower to the middle a punched circle and the table number. We all can’t wait to see them on the tables on Saturday! Renae helped me make some of the flowers as there were 28 to make in total. Right, tick that off my list!

Secondly, I did Kim Archer’s first online Live Workshop yesterday and here’s the layout. Kim is a fantastic teacher and very tentative to her students. The classroom is great and works a treat, there were no hiccups at all making it a very pleasant experience. My layout ended up with 19 photos altogether which was the most I have ever used on a layout before (I think one I did for Judy last year came close though).

The outcome was exactly the way I envisioned it to be but I will say that it is not really me and that’s fine, this is why I do Kim’s classes because her style is so different to mine that I like to try new things! So mission accomplished and I highly recommend you take one of Kim’s online classes.

Thirdly, I am not a card maker (that’s Vicki’s forte) but Gemma is going to a party on Saturday and I thought I would make a card with all the scraps I have I thought that I should at least attempt it. I purchased a Quickutz Revolution last week and I love it!
I have actually used the insides of one of the flourish dies to make the flower and well the rest is pretty simple.

This morning I babysat Michelle’s little one, Harry and at 11 months he is just the cutest little thing to take photos of. So Mum agreed she would dress him appropriately (she was going to anyway because she knows me soooooo well! LOL) and I have the perfect light in our bedroom at the moment, see!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is anyone thinking about going to Crafting Connection in November in Sydney? I’m thinking about it, I have had so many good reports about it from friends that have attended previous ones.

Well if you have lasted this far, thank for visiting and I will report in on Sunday all about the Helping Hand Crop Day with lots of incrimnating photos! Until then, take care.

Hi Sharon,
Your layout looks wonderful and your card is great too. Do you have a cricut as well?? I would like to know how they compare or if they do. Have a great time on Saturday, it will be a magic affair I am sure. Soooo jealous LOL we are going to Perth either side of it so bummer I missed out. Never mind I hope there will be one next year. Good luck with it all and have great fun.
Take care
