An update...

Well ladies, I'll level with you. I've been doing too much. Not too much scrapping, just too much of everything else. This will not come as a surprise to some of you and you were probably thinking "How long can she keep going like this?" Well I was going ok, then had some disturbing events on the weekend that threw me a bit and then by Monday I was having a meltdown. Not serious or anything (you know I can be a bit of a drama queen) but basically I wasn't coping with the workload I've been carrying. Thankfully, after a desperate phone call to my Mum to vent, my sister -in-law has come to my rescue and has come to stay to help me with the kids. I have consequently had the opportunity to do a lot of things this week but have still not caught up so this explains why I have not posted as regularly this week. I know we all have those weeks and that I am not alone - this is a crazy time of year.
I am going to Hyden tomorrow for and all day class which I am really looking forward to, to get out of the house and spend time with fellow scrappers. I've got a layout to show that I did a couple of months ago for the benefit of those who will be attending my class tomorrow on 'Stamping on scrapbook layouts'. I used Fontwerks Elsie Flannigan flower stamps and I was really pleased with the results. It's inspired by C.D. Muckosky - one of my favourite scrapbook artists who uses a lot of hand-drawn accents and coloured pencils.

I received some more stock today. Lots more Christmas papers including SEI, Fontwerks, Scrapworks and Paper Salon. I also received the 3 books I was telling you about earlier on in the month; 'Life Artist' by Ali Edwards $49.95, '4 x 6' photos by Creating Keepsakes $34.95 and Becky Higgins new sketches book $52.95 (expensive I know!) They are all good - here's a photo.

Let me know if you want one.

Well that's it for today girls and I'm away tomorrow so I'll post soon. Have a great weekend!

Glad you are getting some help to relieve you a bit. Those new books look to get all of them one day.
Have a great day tomorrow.
