This is Funny!

Ok so while I was blog hopping I happened across this video on U tube - man is it funny a bit long but funny no less go and have a look, here on u tube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KswnjMa-MQ

Saturday's crop held at the Highfield school hall with 20 ladies was lots of fun and man the hall is fantastic!!
Loads of lighting, it is all brand new, I think they must have daylight lighting in the ceiling because it was lighter at night than it was during the day I reckon. The kitchen is HUGE and all new and we LOVED the dishwasher - man that saved some time.
Heat pumps for when it gets cold and automatic window openers for when it gets to hot! The hall has it all!

We also have decided we need a few new rules lol, help your self to the cuppa, load the dishwasher with your own plate and cup and we are going to start to shut the sales at 8pm from now on - you can carry on scrappin until 9 but it just gives us more time to pack up the stock and then we get to bed earlier lol as we have to come home and pack it all back where it came from!

This is going to be our new venue as long as we can get it. So next Timaru crop (date coming soon) I will e-mail out instructions of how to get to the car park which is right beside the hall but the entrance is down a few houses.

I took the camera so I could load up a photo but unfortunatly I forgot to take photos so maybe next time!

Until then have a great week!

Happy Fathers Day!

How do you sum up the words to express to your dad how much he means to you?
My dad does SO much for our whole family he is our rock, he is so loved and respected and I don't know what I would do without him.
Verses are the easiest way for me and I found a good one about a month ago so I cut it out of the paper and kept it for yesterday (amazing what you can find in the dispatched part of the paper) - so for the card I was good to go - I thought!

I have been investigating Digi stamping and decided to dive on in there and brought some images from Mo's digital Pencil. But the simple didn't turn out that way!
I had even brought a fixative to spray on to apparently stop the image from running but this is what it looked like!

Now i know if you stand WAY WAY back it looks ok lol, but seriously does anyone know how I can make this image solid so i can colour in with the distress inks - anyone?

So this is how the card ended up - and I am still happy with it just would have liked a bit of colour.

and the inside

ok so the gold fish are well very gold but I didn't have silver and they looked silly painted!

But Dad was happy and it took ages - well not really but I even got the sewing machine out and painted the stuff white on the inside the fish net looking stuff!

Ok so on a scrapbooking note, I have the new Kaiser book with the next round of Q2 release papers - WOW they are very nice!!! Just in time for Christmas projects.
Last year we made our own Christmas crackers it was lots of fun finding jokes that were relative to each person and filling them with lollies - Nigel still has his he liked it so much - but he is unaware that the kids (well ok and me) have discovered you can get the lollies out without destroying the cracker lol!

Well best I get off here and out of my PJ's and off to work, if you are out and about pick yourself up the latest Up 2 Scraps Magazine there is a cutie on the front cover - see if you can guess who that is? Oh and she has a couple of layouts in there too!

Catch you all soon, take care

Wow I can not believe that I am going to tell you this but registration is open for Raincliff March 19th - 21st 2010!!!
E-mail me if you would like a registration form (we have out done ourselves this time).
And yes Mum, Dad and Aunty are all booked in for the kitchen, and I will return out the front where I feel more comfortable.

You might wonder why we are doing camp in March next year and not in February as we normally do - well shh don't say anything but we MIGHT have a talented NZ tutor coming to Timaru to run some class's!

Now some more photos of Raincliff 2009 to share

Here are the famous cow girls! Last year they were the scrap angels and we look forward to seeing what they will come up with at the next camp!

Next is the winners of the raffle, Jo very kindly organsied a raffle with beautiful hand made Rimu trays and inside them was about $150-180 of scrapbooking products and these were the lucky winners (with Nic standing in for her lucky sister - we hope she shares Nic!)
