Lots to share!!

So much to share tonight - I won't have time later on in the week and I am going to the Hamilton Quilt and Craft fair next week as Scottie Crafts has a stand there - come say hello if you are going!

Please take a look at my gallery tab as I have created a 2011 album with a lot of my scrapping from this year on it. Click on the images and it will take you to a page just with that image on it - THANKS!!

I had some wonderful feedback from Annelie that her friends daughter who knows of Kaitlyn said that last year Kaitlyn was a horrible bully but this year she is the best girl in the school - so sweet and it is a HUGE STEP!

Young Kaitlyn had a Princess and Knight ball to go to last Friday that the school arranged for all the girls to bring their Dad or Poppa with - Andrew went along.  This was right up Kaitlyn's alley.  Here she is in her finery.

Next up Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge has their new challenge up and my first layout as a Design Team member is up.  It is a prompt challenge and the prompt is:

The challenge this time is to scrap your birthplace and year – incorporating at least two things that were popular in culture that year as an embellishment (song title, historical event, movie, hero or heroine) – you can include baby photos instead of photos of your birthplace if you wish. Please include a link to another scrapbooking challenge website in your blog posting for this. If you are shy to scrap your year of birth, then why not try some hidden journalling????

You might have some luck on the internet for suitable embellishments, or popular songs, etc. Try it, and see what you find!!
Here is my layout - Out of Africa - I was born in South Africa and lived there for twelve years before embarking on a sailing trip to New Zealand where I have been since and consider myself to be a loyal KIWI - not a Springbok supporter ALL BLACKS all the WAY.

My year is 1971 and Greenpeace started up and I have various movie,song and TV titles along the edges of the layout.

Here is my class I am teaching this Friday (there might be a couple of spaces) at Scottie Crafts at 10am.  I will be bringing my Vagabond with for everyone to have a go with - Hence the title Vagabond Traveller!

Been creating heaps again lately - two kits for the show -A Wizard of Oz Shadowbox and a prima/scrapware layout and card kit. Will post images on my blog soon.

Here are some layouts I did for Twiddleybitz challenges yesterday - have used some older stash which is good!

 This one has a bit of old Basic Grey Chipboard on it too along with some new papers.

 Some more old Basic Grey in the mix ;)

 I had fun with this wasn't liking it but love how it has come out!

and another layout I have not shared - created for a Websters Challenge but didn't make the deadline.

You made it to the end!!
Thanks for visiting!!
Be back as soon as I can.
