In amongst it all I found some time to sew during last week. After visiting Cherie's blog and seeing the gorgeous little dolls that she had made with her daughters, I had the sudden urge to make Madi one! Cherie e-mailed me the link for the free pattern and tutorial on the Martha Stewart website and half an hour later I had fabric all over the floor trying to decided what to use. I was only going to make one... but got a little carried away and ended up making four!Don't they look happy? I was planning on keeping a couple as gifts, but as soon as Madi saw them she claimed them all... so I guess I'll be making some more now. They were quite fun and pretty easy to make.
Mum and Dad came down and stayed for the weekend so Paul and I could go out to dinner and a movie on Saturday night - our belated anniversary celebration. We haven't been out without the kids in SOOOO long... we felt quite lost! LOL... But it was wonderful. So nice just to relax and enjoy a meal together and chat... then we headed to the movies and saw Fast & Furious - boys movie for sure but still enjoyed it.
I ran my monthly Cuttlebug Card Class at Sunbird Scrapbooking yesterday. We had another great bunch of ladies come along... and my Mum came too! It's the first time she's ever been to one of my classes and it was so much fun to have her there! Here are the cards from the class using the Kaiser Fun Fair papers...
Here's one last share for today. I've come to the conclusion that I really struggle with pastel coloured papers on layouts! LOL... I really wanted to keep the colours soft and pretty on this one to tone in with the colours in the photos... It didn't turn out quite the way I'd pictured...oh well! (The great thing is that everything I used on the layout has been in my stash for ages. Love using up old stuff!)
I hope you've all had a great weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by!
