What a weekend.. busy scrapping up a storm for the full day Valentine Class this weekend. Teaching at Scrapnificent (27 Feb 2010). Only R380-00 and you get 2 double layouts.

Here is a sneek peek of my layout.. used the latest Making Memories range of paper... lovestruck... isn't it so pretty !

There is still space so if you want to join us phone Estelle on 011 660 8092

Also managed to finish a Booklet front and back for a friend.. Theme is "soggens terwyl die ketel kook" (In the morning, while the kettle's boiling)... an inspirational booklet.. so I added some paper piecings of tea cups and a teapot... Hope she likes it..

Close up view:

The back of the booklet has the teapot spilling forth things you need to remember:

Yesterday we took the boys to the Circus... they were so excited to go... I must say.. what a disappointment ! Wow, it was 99% chinese... the animals were "yawn"... boring !!! ... and the show wasn't well executed.. lots of mistakes, etc.. really not worth the money.

I see that the Moscow Circus is coming to South Africa again.. will have to save up and take the kids again to that one.. that was worth every cent last time !
Lastly, some inspiration for you to get the Scrapping juices flowing:

Check out this cool link:
Although it is American, it is quiet nice.. gives you information about the day / year you were born. Prices, presidents, etc… very informative and nice to use on a layout

If you want to scrapbook a page about yourself, in the future, your great, great grandchildren could know a little something about you, here is a list of just a few questions you could answer on the page, I really think I am going to do this myself really soon, here is the list,

· What is a compliment you receive on a regular basis?
· what is something you have made by hand?
· What talent do you consider your favorite or best?
· What are your beauty secrets?
· What have you done in life that your most proud of?
· What inanimate object or objects do you treasure?
· What can usually make you smile?
· What do you most enjoy doing when you're alone?
· What are at least five things your hands do during the course of a day?
· What are the pet names others have for you?
· What are your housekeeping secrets?
· what is your favorite dish to cook?
· How do you feel about nature?
· What do you do when something breaks?
· What would you do if you won $1,000,000?
· What do you consider life’s necessities?
· How do you instantly react when faced with a crisis?
· What word best describes your style?
· What makes you cry?
· Do you daydream?
· In three words describe your heart

Okay, this sounds like it could be fun, you could also play reporter and ask these questions of someone else, say your mother or sister, and make a page about them!!!
Have a great week ahead !
Hugs, Mich
