Today I held my first class of All about Me album. The girls had a great time, and really got stuck into it. They did some great pages, happy to be doing something about themselves for a change, instead of everyone else.
Here are a couple of pictures of Kate, Daeanna and Bev hard at work.
We had a visit from my daughter, Emily during the day. She is very new to Stamping and is starting to really enjoy it. I gave her a job, she had to make her cousin a birthday card. He turned 9 today, Happy Birthday Jackson. Jackson is a mad Adelaide Crows supporter, in Aussie rules football. This is Emily in action.
and this is the finished product.
Stamps: Just Rugby, Its Your birthday, Tidy Alphabet, Bold numbers
Cardstock: Yo Yo Yellow, Night of Navy, Real Red, W/White
Inks: Yo Yo Yellow, Night of Navy, Real Red
Accessories: dimensionals, sponges
Thank you Emily.

My doesn't time fly by, sorry I haven't posted anything lately, but time has just passed me by. Our daughter and her fiance have returned home after eight years away, and that has taken up a lot of my time, just catching up and teaching Emily to stamp.
Emily is going to be making all her wedding invites, place cards etc. She has picked her colours and had a few test runs, and is ready to go.
News about Stampin' Up!. They have put out their retiring stamps and accessories list. Here is the link.
Products are disappearing fast, so get in quick and let me know your order asap so not to be disappointed.
I have had a sneak Peak at a few new products, and stamp sets, you will not be disappointed. If you would like a 2009-2010 catalogue contact me and I will put your name on one, and get it to you as soon as I get them.
