Pre Christmas Celebrations

So before the Celebration for Christmas happens in our house, usually there is a Christmas Concert or two that needs attending, apart from the Christmas Cocktail Parties, Block Parties and the wrapping of presents. Here is a page I finished to show Daniel in his first Christmas Concert in Primary school. He was one of the shepherds. As you can see by the dressing gown and tea towel, costumes were not really difficult. Slowly, but surely, (2002) I am catching up with my scrapbooking.

Clean and Simple Christmas 2011

Here are the Clean and Simple Christmas cards I made for my class this year. Each one of them is using the same colours, Whisper White, Real Red and Old Olive. The first set of cards is using the Pennant Parade stamp from Stampin Up. The second lot of cards is using the 2 step bird punch from Stampin Up to create a wreath. (Using the leaves - Branch part only).

Fifth Avenue Floral 2

Here is the second card we are making for our Fifth Avenue Floral Class.
Here they are all together. Sorry for not blogging these earlier girls, but had to fight my 18 year old to get the computer off him. lol. I should have sent him off driving somewhere. 

So for all the girls that have attended my classes all year, have a safe 


See you all back in 2012.

Fifth Avenue Floral

This is the last card we, as a class, are making for 2011. I thought we would end the year with a bang, a little bit of water colouring, a bit of cutting and a bit of die cutting. They are going to love me for this. lol. I have not used these colours before, so I thought I would give them a go. The colours we are using are:

Calypso Coral
Lucky Limeade
Crumb Cake

I really wish that Blogger would give you more colour options :)
Below is a close up of the water colouring. Pretty Cool, if I do say so myself.

Teacher - Thank you

I have made this card for one of Nathan's Teachers as a thank you for a great year. No guessing what the teacher was teaching though. Yes, you guessed right, it was Automotive.

The image came from, (I hope). If not I will edit this post when I gather all the details. So here is the close up of the image. The card stock consisted of the following.

Not Quite Navy
Real Red
Old Olive

Stampin Royalty - Anything but a card

This is the very first time I have submitted a scrapbook page into a challenge, so I will see how we go. It is definitely not the best set of pictures I could have used, but they are part of Daniel's progress, and that is something that I have to document. I have used Becky Higgins Project life papers, although I did a little photoshop with the background paper. The template came from Crystal Wilkerson.
