Pages and Update


This week Jess has been a sick little chick! For the last week she has had a croaky voice whih is quite amusing really seeing she talks and talks all the time and by Monday morning had developed a terrible cough so we kept her home from school. While I was at work, Jess and Trev spent all day in their PJ's watching movies! She is on the mend but has a bit of a cold now so is just a regular snot machine!

What else has been happening...... worked at the scrap shop Monday packing for the big move! WOW! What a job! Boxes and boxes of scrappy stuff! Was a great day actually! Cant wait to see the new shop all set up! --- 501 Goodwood Road, Colonel Light Gardens!

What else???? I made it thru to Round 4 of Battle of the Scrappers over at 3 Angels! The last challenge was as follows ... "You are one of the talented scrappers chosen to explore the island in search of scrap goodies and a way to escape. You decide to head north. The trip is long, slow and treacherous! Exhaustion sets in. You need to find somewhere to spend the night. Hidden behind some bushes you find the entrance to a cave. You cautiously creep into the cave – what will you find? You can’t believe your eyes. ‘Aahs’ and ‘oohs’ float through the air. It’s like Aladdin’s Cave – there are scrap goodies everywhere! Patterned papers – old favourites and brand new ones stacked up to the roof, cardstock, jewels, chipboard, ribbon, buttons, pearls, mini albums in every shape and size. This is what dreams are made of!!! Suddenly there is a horrific crash. The whole cave is shaking. The entrance to the cave has been barred. There is screaming, some girls are crying. Desperation is setting in. You’ve got food for 10 days and scrapping gear for an eternity!!! What do you want to leave behind if you never get to see your family and friends ever again?"

So I created a little tag book for Jessica letting her know some important things to remember in life! Here is a sneak peek because I am teaching it on Monday 27th October at 7pm!!

I just realised I didn't show you my round 2 entry! oops... This was the brief... "You have enjoyed your enforced "holiday" on the island - the white beaches, the surf, palms swaying in the gentle breeze, the solitude and quiet. (and not a rain cloud in sight, Felicity! biggrin.gif )
But you are starting to grow restless. You are missing your family and friends, your on-line buddies, the 3AS forum and gallery and most of all; the scrapping. sad.gif
One of the girls, Hermione Green, has managed to smuggle a suitcase full of scrapping goodies onto the island. You decide that to get back home you need to send a group of your most talented scrappers to scrapbattle. To determined who should be send into battle you decide to divide Hermione Green's scrapping goodies evenly amongst yourselves.
When you open Hermione's suitcase the crowd falls quiet ... everything is green: the papers, the embellishments, everything!!! Even her stack of photos is 'green'! They are all nature shots! The only thing not green is the cardstock. She's packed white, black and brown card." I HATE GREEN!!! But I was pretty happy with my entry!
Round 4 will be a massive challenge - stay tuned to see what I come up with! are a few more really old pages for you to look at!
