it's Sunday..

and i miss my mom. not a good day then, and not much i can do about it. Erica and Ann came to scrap on Friday night, we did material, and i had to scrap my girls. i always complain that i don't have girls to scrap, but then i realized that i do, they are just animal girls! (never talk back!!)
Friday afternoon turned out to be a huge success, i taught a brown paper bag mini album to about 120 ladies. Must admit, i was nervous, but once they got started it was great fun. i loved to see all the moms, grans, and girls together, they looked spectacular. So, those of you who attended, leave a comment if you found your way to my blog, it would be interesting to hear from you.
i am taking a sabbatical for the rest of the year from teaching! Very hard decision i had to make, but now that i've made it, i know it was the right thing to do. The online classes on Designers Notes will continue as planned, so, maybe i'll see some of you girls there! take care and have a blessed day tomorrow

the big 40

yeah, it's his birthday tomorrow! he will definitely get breakfast in bed, as the tradition is in our home, and he will do nothing in the house tomorrow!! i made him this little album, one of Wilna's classes on Designers Notes, and it contains the letters from the boys and the voucher gifts we made him. the vouchers are stuffies we will do for him during the next week, just to show him that we love and appreciate him.... and we truly do!
this man is amazing and i am thankful for him! we love you...
take care

the colour orange...

i dunno why, but the colour orange just speaks to my heart. i have so many orange things it is scary! so, obviously i used this beautiful embossed paper from Basic Grey, kept it for a long time, and finally found the perfect page to use them.

it is so wonderful to do a page on this amazing son of ours. Nearly fifteen, and the source of laughter in our home! i am so proud of him!!

For Friday's class, you need to bring a big envelope, can be white or brown, depends what colours you want to use.
Photo's: i used the two big photos, and the smaller ones were printed on transparency.
Bring your thing-a-magi's, a nice page to use all sorts of embellishments!

have a blessed day!
