Busy Busy week!

Nothing like a busy week to get things done eh! I am meeting myself in the landing most days! So much happening this week, most importantly Lance and Donna are coming to town to teach us on Saturday at Mid Summer Scrapping Event. I have been in crafting overdrive finishing off projects before school hols. So far I've made 2 class projects for Craftzone, 4 minialbums, 1 16''x16'' canvas, 5 (yes 5!)30x40 framed scrapbook layouts for teacher presents, around 10 new layouts a CJ entry, Donna's Hybrid Album for Saturday's class and a few other bits as well. Not to mention event planning, new tyre changes, dentist visit, teacher appointments, playdates and general hum drum stuff of daily life. Next week I sleep for a week!

Here's some of my latest work;
Sarah is Lucy's montessori teachers and she got married last year. I have been asking her for a photo for the past year so I could make her a gift. Finally I got some this week and they were beautiful photos. Her wedding album was like a hollywood actresses's portfolio - amazing! I enjoyed making this for her and I really hope she likes it when I give it to her on Lucy's last day on Friday.

I decided to make her a mini album from these photos she gave me - in matching papers. I have to say I am in love with my bind it all - getting loads of use from it lately!

I'm not generally one for scraplifting as it never feels like my own work. However I saw something in Scrapbook Inspirations last month from Shimelle Laine and I thought it was just beautiful. As I have the very same journaling tags she used I scraplifted and let Eva do her own journaling for it about our recent trip to Disney. Quite happy with how it turned out.

I LOVE your new LO's can't pick a fave so much inspiration there!!
I would love to have been able to go to Lance and Donna's classes and was really trying to get someone to look after Mum for me but unfortunatly it sold out before I could get anything sorted :-( Not that I'm a bit surprised the places weren't gonna hang around too long, sure maybe next time (if there is one). Hope ye have a great day and I'll be thinking of ye and joining in scrapping here at home LOL I'll be there in spirit !! LOL
