Home Again


A little bit of a "panic attack"
set in on Wednesday night, heard that
the ash over N.Z. could come down
to sea level!!! After a slightly restless night
good to go Thursday early am, from Nelson airport
thru to Auckland.
Yay, two excited ladies heading off to the 5th SENZ
expo (for both of us)...
As per usual, I enjoyed a fantastic class with Rachel Tucker,
love her girly style and always a fun class as well as new techniques learned.

A class I did with Lianne Gray (Scottie Crafts)
saw me complete this awesome canvas. (pictured)
Thanks heaps Lianne.

My other class was with Beverley Cunningham, a
tutor from Scottie Crafts as well. A fabulous
"Tim Holtz" mini album, I will post a picture
as soon as completely finished.
Thanks heaps to you as well Beverley...

Good shopping, food, R+R (well not much of that!!!)
friends, roll on SENZ 2012!!!

Lastly, thanks Brendy for your great company/friendship/humour!!!

The challenge over at Scottie Crafts...

Latest challenge at Scottie Crafts is to use summer pics and do "your take" on
the displayed sketch.

Found what I think is the ideal photo. John and Matthew in the surf
at Okiwi Bay. Not too sure about the look on your face tho' Mattie,
are you scared Dad's gonna let you slip, or worried he's gonna say
"Time to get out now"!!!

Just over two weeks away!!!


Hope you all made the most of the weather over the holiday weekend.

Can't believe how warm the temperatures are still, probably a false sense of security (or warmth)
though eh.. Still as long as winter does'nt decide because of late arrival, it can drag on into spring etc...

And yep, it is just over two weeks until SENZ 2011, so lookin' forward to good company, good shopping, and new skills to put into practise. And oh not forgetting a break from work as well, yay!!!

Have been working on this Xmassy layout to enter over at Southern Girls latest challenge. Isn't it hard to believe we are nearly half way through 2011, and into mid winter Xmas dinners etc. etc...

Queens Birthday Weekend... Was it wet, oh yes it is!!!

Posted by Picasa

Hope you are all having a great holiday weekend. Weather in my hometown of Nelson has been wet, wet, wet!!!
Have had two of the grandies stay while Mum in Wellington, we have had loads of fun even tho' wet. Magnificent "hut" built in the lounge, just lucky the lounge is a good size, as has stayed put for most of the time.
We made Mum a birthday cake/cards etc. as she has a birthday on the 7th.
Did manage to complete a layout today and I am entering this in Scrapbox NZ challenge and also at Scrapbook

Let's hope the last day of Queen's birthday weekend is fine eh!!!
