I've posted my first workshop up at the Boutique today - it's not too late to purchase access to the exclusive workshop area. And even though the kits sold out, alot of the projects can be made with your own stash.

I've really loving my time as Guest Stylist - the girls are all so patient & encouraging with me - and I'm stoked that people are doing my challenges!!!!!!! I have to admit, in the beginning I was worried that no one would want to complete them. But the proof is in the gallery - which is a relief.

Talking of relief - it is so good to have a much cooler day today. I sweltered badly yesterday with our air con not working. Couldn't even bring myself to do any scrapping until about 11pm last night.

Ok one more load of washing to hang out & then I'm back into my CC challenges - only have until tonight to get them finished.

Getting ready for my road trip tomorrow with Michelle. We're off to Coffs Harbour for ScrapBoutique's Summer Retreat. I've got all my scrap stuff packed (essential items first!!) & my stylist LOs finished & photographed. Just some ironing to go.

Had a quick look at formal dresses with Fliss today & laybyed 2 cute little numbers. We will look some more in town next week. She finished her last HSC exam today with Art, which of course was harder than what she thought it would be. So........13 years of schooling is now over........I think she was a little sad having to sign out for the last time.

And I'll finish with a layout share from last month.

This one was one of Kate's sketches for SFS.

I've had a stay at home week after my big weekend. Am trying to catch up on some projects & had to tidy up the house after our visitors.
Lois & I had a great day at Peta's retreat last Friday. Got to catchup with some girls we've met before in class there & with some friends from online, namely Sar from Scrapbook Savvy and Marijana, both from Wollongong. I finished 7 LOs which I am yet to photograph. Had a laugh sitting next to the norty girls Bev & Nat and managed to eat alot of beautiful homecooked food just in one day LOL. I've pinched this photo from Peta's blog - I had to smile at how tired we look - I spose it was pretty late when we were leaving!!!

My scrappy friend Kate has just taken over the challenge blog Scrap the Girls as of November. I know she will be perfect for this cause she is an awesome scrapper. I've never done any of the STG challenges before, so am looking forward to a new challenge in support of the gorgeous Kate.
Tonight's the first online class by Zoe Pearn at ScrapBoutique. These classes are free & start at 8pm our time. Looking forward to this one, which means I'll have to have the little monster in bed early.
Finished this LO for 123 Challenge today - not sure if I like it though - baby photos are not my thing!!!

I completed these LOs from a Shop & Crop monthly kit, at the Divas Crop day. The first one had a transparent window, which you can see my floorboards through LOL.
