Today's thought for you...

Why you? 

Because there is no one better.

Why now?

Because tomorrow isn't soon enough.

Fantastic folding!

*Click on the photos to make them bigger....      :)

Well here they all are, fantastically folding their little fingers off. Well it was a full house for sure, so I hope that I was able to provide attention in the  right capacity to everyone. We had a few new faces today and it was a delight to meet them. I am hoping that they will come back again and we can have another few hours of fun. No fancy plate or photo for the muffin photo today as I ran out of time. They didn't last long and once again I think that they were enjoyed. (Banana and Choc chip yum yum!)

So a HUUUUGEEE thank you to Pam, Kathy, Barbara, Mandy, Isobel, Joan, Barbara, Leslie, Belinda, Mary, Meredith, Robin and Jan.. (We missed you Dolly...) woot woot, what a great day scrapping (well card making to be painfully accurate) we had, THANKS AGAIN ladies I had a ball!

Know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em

Well ladies, I am in SHOCK!! My Fancy folds class is overflowing. Luckily I have heaps of paper this time and can accommodate. I can only accept 1 or 2 more, so if you want to join in the class, then get in quick. I have never had this many before so it will be a party indeed!! Wooohooo....gee I will need 2 muffin mixes for this Fantasia to book in for this Sunday...9524 86688. See you then.

Here's what has evolved from the pile of supplies below. A bit different, a bit french and a bit funky... Love the colours, love the colours, did I say that I love the colours?? This class is on in August. Call Fantasia to book now what baked goodies can I make for the girls that will go with these cards?

Tres chic class

Well these little gorgeous beauties took my eye while I was wandering around Fantasia looking for inspiration for my next class. The stamps are from Hero Arts. I am am very fond of taupe, black and white with a splash of red thrown in (for fun). So when I saw these I said "ooh lala..." So cute huh? Let's see what I can come up with...

Next Class

Well this is what developed from that lovely stash pile of goodies in the post below:

It includes a waterfall card and a "Z" fold card just for a bit of pizazz....

What's next?

Mmmm well not sure what I will do with this pretty little pile here. I am thinking that we should explore the use of coloured matts (is it mats or matts??) as in background cardstock. I like to use an explosion of colours for a mat sometimes to help *pop* the piece out. Other times I think it's best to go with something that blends. Those of you who know me know that I am a true die hard fan of colour. It lights up the world. Sometimes it's hard to resist it. Anyway, back to this little pile of goodies. Thinking thinking thinking...what is it with Butterflies? They draw me in like a magnet. Perhaps it's their freedom and light hearted ways, not a care in the world as they flutter by...

By the way, the class with the above goodies will run on Sunday 15th July from 11am to 1pm, cost $25, and yes yes yes there WILL be freshly baked muffins for morning at Fantasia 9524 8688

Remind someone can find this here in my madeit store  *click here*

Pineapple Tarts

Here's a page I did last year. It's one of my best friend's (yes I am sooo lucky to have more than 1 best friend)
and I continuing our tradition of taste testing pineapple tarts. We test them from anywhere we are and compare notes...we do have a favourite so far. We have been do this for 30 'ish' years...yum yum...
I love the balance of this page and the circular theme of the pineapple tarts. 

I have removed her name to protect the innocent (that would be her not me...) and besides she will kill me if's ok, I will win her over with another...Pineapple tart.

Starting stamping

Great chitty chatty class last Sunday with Bernie and Jennifer. We were testing out the in's and out's and what for's of beginning stamping. It was fun. What fantastic ladies. I had a great time thanks you girls, I hope you did too! We had a Vanilla muffins this time, (cooked expertly by my little Miss Caitlin, thanks hunny bunnyxx)
So I hope that I shared a few tips and they were able to benefit from the class. No piccies to show this time sorry I forgot to take my camera...ooops...
So next up is the Fancy Folds class on Sunday 24th June, it's also filling up fast, only a few spots left, so get in there girls if you are interested. I am off to dredge my creative banks to fire out 2 more classes if I can...I think the mojo is running "low" but sometimes that very challenge gets me going...

I think I may have time to get some photos developed tomorrow so I am crossing my fingers that I can get some of my own personal scrapping done. It's almost impossible at the moment, but I am busting to do some. Here's a card I made for a 40th quite some time ago, but I still like it. Thought it may give you a little inspiration perhaps...very simple but cute just the same. Why did those big flowers ever go out of fashion I love them   :)
