Amelia bear

Heres the latest page for O. His class had a mascot last year and he was thrilled to bring her home for the weekend. She is Amelia bear, supposed to be the first woman to cross the Atlantic if you remember? Not quite sure what that has to do with anything, but she was quite cute. O had to write a report as to what she and he got up to over the weekend in a class diary and add photos too. It was fun for him to share with all the other students

This brings back many happy memories. These are the boys second cousins. My cousin married one of my best friends and heres the result. We visited them when we went to the Uk. The boys are one year apart, so Liam was 9, cousin was 8, Owen 7, and cousin 6. They all got on like a house on fire. Lego was a big hit and kept them occupied for hours- we went to Legoland with them too of course :D

October EB cardswap

Today, nearly all day, I made these 3 cards. I cant believe its taken me soooo long. I haven't been feeling great so maybe I was just slow but making just 3 cards has never taken that long before. Anyway you can see that they are Waterfall cards. I think they are really cool, bit tricky to put together but worth it in the end, don't you think?

Grade 2

This is Owens grade 2 teacher. She is an amazing woman. The sort of person you expect to be a teacher. Sadly after this photo was taken she announced her retirement. She only taught Owen, Liam didn't have the experience of having her as a teacher. Owen loved her and thought she was the best teacher she had ever had, - until he got to Grade 3 LOL

This took quite a while to complete. I think Im happy with it. I traced the title and painted each letter and cut them out and edged them, to get a different effect. What do you think?

Sept Kaszazz scrapbooking workshop

This is the workshop for September. I haven't been able to find a suitable photo for it yet, but I really like the colours that have been used in this one. Theres quite a bit of paint as well which was fun.

Our Mate Bob

This is Owens page of Bob. Im not sure about this one, don't know whether I like it or not. I think it needs something but not sure what. What do you think?

Wishes do come true.........

This was a great big surprise for the boys this Christmas. We had told them many months before that we just couldn't afford a Wii. Unbeknown to them a favourite Uncle played Santa and their wish came true. Love the expression on their faces :D

Easter 2010

This is Easter 2010. We always have our Mothers group party for Easter and Christmas. We take it in turns and always have an egg hunt. As you can see we had loads of eggs this year! Its all good fun and of course we share the eggs between the kids for their lolly bags at the end of the hunt :D

EB card swap for May

Heres my efforts for our card swap. It took me all morning to make these simple cards, due to feeling yucko with a cold, yes youre right pathetic!
I havent used all the things I need to use for the challenge either. There were supposed to be some rub ons used but the ones i thought Id use, I  must have used for something else.
We had to use pink and glitter, got those covered although you cant see alot of the glitter glue I used

Kaszazz workshops for May

Heres the workshops for May. The scrapbooking one will look alot better with photos. The right hand page is actually a photo pocket. There will be 3 photos in the missing parts and the main page has a
5 x 7 photo too. I have used a different stamp for this workshop, to the one that is used in the original, but it looks just as good- check it out on the Kaszazz website.

Heres the first ever meal that Liam made alone. Im very proud of him and am hoping it can be an ongoing thing, although this was way back in October and so far we havent had a repeat performance!

EB card swap for April

Really enjoyed making these. Most people know I love to use up scraps of paper and these certainly helped in getting rid of a stash of it :D. The pinwheels are so easy to make but so effective I think.

Easter kids workshop

Heres the kids workshop for Easter. They are all coming over tomorrow to make them. I just hope they enjoy it and dont find it too fiddly, particularly the bunny. It was hard to stick the pompoms to the lollipop but i know they will manage. We always have a good time with our friends whatever they create. :D

Latest Kaszazz workshops

These are the latest workshops from Kaszazz.
The top one we completed last month. I just had to find some photos for it.
The second one the girls are going to do this week. Its very complex with colouring of your own papers and cutting out your own shapes. I like the outcome though, I like the way it looks.

Kaszazz workshop for March

Heres the card workshop for March. I really enjoyed making this one. They are quite simple to make but the backgrounds and the punched flowers are all made using your own made colour paper.
Its cool!
