Hello all :)
Last night I had the opportunity to do a class at Scrapchat, run by the very lovely and supremely talented Leanne Stamatellos (aka the main subject of my scrap-stalking LOL), with the kits available through Tanyah at Scrapncraft with T.
Leanne had designed a beautiful layout for us all to emulate ... and here is my take on it.
I had originally decided to use a different photo to this one, but couldn't think of an appropriate title for it, and I then decided that I wanted to scrap in 8.5 x 11 for the Book of Me album I'm working on, so chose this photo mid-class instead.... apologies for the quality of the photo, but it was taken at around midnight last night. :)
Journalling reads: "Turning 37 this year bothered me a bit. It's getting very close to 40. But then I remembered .... I have a wonderful husband, 2 beautiful children, and many wonderful friends. I am happy being me."
I am very happy with how the layout turned out (thanks Leanne!!), and am also very pleased that I decided to go with the 8.5 x 11 format.
I would have taken a better photo of it today, but we have had a house full of people for most of the day today, and I just never got a chance. Nick had decided to invite 'the guys from work' over for a bbq, and so, with partners, and associated kids, and a mother-in-law (yes, a mother-in-law came as well), we had a grand total of 22 people here for lunch! Phew!
Arrival time was midday today, and here I am .... finally getting some time to myself .... as the last guests left at 8.35pm tonight. Such a long day! But, it was good to meet everyone that Nick works with, and their partners, and I think the day was a success. I'm sure Nick will get the debrief tomorrow at work, but it looked to me like everyone was having a good time.
So now, it's time for me to catch up on all the emails and forum posts, and then I think I might get an early night tonight.
I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend, and I'll talk to you soon.
