AEIOU & 123 Monthly Challenge…

Well the 123 Cyber Crop chat is still going and like all good women, I’m multi-tasking!!! But I did manage to finish the monthly challenge which was black and white, hand stitching and 3+ photos. I need colour in my life so I decided to use a really warm brown cardstock. Don’t know if I pushed the boundaries with that one, but got the layout done….and that’s good. Did some tricky stuff to it like leaving the knots on the top instead of hiding them – I think it suits my style more; with the smaller photos I’ve hand drawn frames with the thick Zig pen and cut them out – no more doodling needed. The only thing that let me down is the new smaller Zig pen – not black enough!!! Disappointed. But LOVE the Rhonna Farrer stamps – can use them everywhere!!


Got the enrolment forms to AEIOU for Rainer this week. Had a little cry and then jumped for joy, then had another little cry, then phoned Michael who was between appointments and was trying NOT to cry. Everyone happy – of course but the paperwork is phenomenal. Need to copy all his reports AGAIN!! But small pain for real BIG gain. I’m busting with excitement but tired at the same time.

Off to the Brisbane Paper Crafts Festival tomorrow. Maxing out my time with Zina and I’m all packed and ready to scrap. Can’t wait.

    Oooh gorgeous LO Giovanna! Love the colours (or lack of iykwim).A huge Congrats for Rainer getting into AEIOU. I haven’t had anything to do with them – haven’t needed to I guess – but I’m sure they’re fantastic and it’s the best thing you can do for him. You’re so lucky to have him there as it’s so important to do the treatment NOW!PMSL at the photo of him with the cereal, hilarious!!! ;)I’m here if you need to talk!
