Man do i so wish i was still on holidays.............................I seem to have come home to crap!! And its the kind of crap that just doesn't make sense. All i know is that at the end of the day........ a GREAT friend of mine has been hurt - and this upsets me..... greatly. This is a person totally undeserving of the events occuring around her, a person that will offer you her trust wholeheartedly and stand beside you with help if ever needed. And whilst we may not of been friends for years, this is a person that i will be PROUD of to call my FRIEND for a long time to come. You know who you are missy....................... so CHIN UP, STAND PROUD and keep being the awesome person you are - know that you are surrounded by love and friendship! Things have a funny way of taking care of themselves and KARMA is a mysterious marvel!

And when all else fails - remember this, from the mouth of a wise red head " MEH.........."

But we go onwards and upwards..............we continue to live and to create..............and create i have. I have managed to get three layouts done in the time we've been home. Unfortunately i can only share one with you, haven't taken a pic of the second one and the third is my final entry for the For Keeps comp.
This layout here was made for a challenge posted up at EMBELLISHED had to use lyrics from an Australian artist. The pic is one of many taken while on hols and thought it fit perfectly with these shannon noll lyrics - love the WRMK papers.

Will have to get off my butt and get a pic of the other layout to share - have used the new BG gypsy papers for it and really like the way its come up, will try and share tomorrow guys.

Had my class over in Echuca again - i absolutely love teaching these ladies, they love learning new tricks and techniques and they just seem to absorb it all with no probs.......they are just the best group ever......always sooo willing. Today's class was based on Journalling - all the little tips and tricks I could give them on handwriting - my all time fav journal strips and the different styles of doing them - different styles you can apply to your writing - and of course had to include Doodling. So after having a muck around with all of this for a while we put it to use by creating a layout that incorporated all of these - made up a little pocket for the layout as well in case they still wanted to hide their handwriting - am plese to say that none felt the need to hide their handwriting!! GOOD ON YOU LADIES, YOU ARE FANTASTIC!!!!

Well thats it from me tonight guys, if you read it then thank you. i did have some other good news to share but i think i might hold off till a bit of a brighter day.

- ooooh nearly forgot - if you have the new copy of Scrapbook Creations turn to page 108 and you'll see my grumpy little man - this pic is such a crack up, he looks like a little frankenstien lol. Funny thing is though, he was actually in a good mood, so i have NO IDEA what he was going on about hey?

okie, thanks guys, will chat soon.
