Our New Tiny Beautiful Grandaughter & Card Tutorial to come...

YAYYY she has finally arrived (well she is now 2 weeks old), time flies when your having fun!! Naomi & Steven named her Sophie (Sophie Rose). Its funny how they had other names picked out but when she was born she just didn't suit those names they had picked. She definately looks like her mum! Especially her hair.. *GRIN* Well here are some pictures to show her off to you all.

The picture on the right are Sophies Great Grandparents (well one lot of them anyway) so they will be Nanna Murray & Poppy Murray. They look so proud, don't they!! So I will be Poppy & Michelle will be Nan. Sophie already has a huge family... (Well I thought that photo was saved but it has now disappeared... NOT HAPPY!!

Here is a picture of Sophie by herself. These are the only two photos that we did not loose as I already had part of this email saved to the actual Blog. Where as all the others were just saved in Publisher being edited. Oh well at least we have a couple of Photos at the moment. Still can't believe they are all gone!! Oh well no doubt we will get lots more photos & be able to start doing some SU Scrap Pages to Post. The main thing is Sophie is Healthy & Happy & so are Naomi & Steven.

Well we now have 5 Grandchildren. Love them all to bits. Still have some photos that we had saved on disc of the other 4 (Mia, Taia, Chloe & Zac). So look out for some more Scrap pages of them in the near future & of course some lovely card creations. Just have to photograph them all again. We will get there.

Tomorrow night I am hoping to post a few of the latest card creation I have done & a small tutorial on a very popular card that I have been making a lot of for the past 8 months. People love it as you can resize it to whatever you want. The actual tutorial will be on the first size that I did. Which you actually get 2 cards from an A4 sheet. Well I shall leave you all in suspence of this one.

Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'

There are lots of exciting things happening in Tassie over the next few months.
Here is the first installment for you..... (more to come in the next few days)!!

There is going to be a Stamping-Scrapbooking Retreat that is on in August which is going to be lots & lots of FUN... Especailly as I have been asked to be the guest demonstrator. Each year the Retreat is organised & someone different comes along & does there thing. This is the first time I have done something like this before. So at the same time as being excited it is a bit scary at the same time. The dates are: Friday night 15th August till Sunday afternoon 17th August. The cost is $155 for the whole weekend. Which includes all meals from the Friday night till Lunch on the Sunday. Also includes the accommodation & kits that will be supplied to do the projects that I will be teaching. There will be some free time for you to do your own things as well. Like eat chocolate (did I say that)!! hehehe.... Yes I know I am naughty arnt I... Yes I can see you all out there agreeing with me...

If you would like some more information about this please contact us & we will post it out to you. It is going to be a FANTASTC weekend. The more the merrier!!

Bookings are essential & payment to be made by the end of July.

Of course it is open to anyone who wants to come from beginers to people who have been crafting for years..
Take Care & Keep Safe
