FA Newsletter & Today’s the Day

Here’s the latest from the November Newsletter at Forever Always.

My DT pack had these gorgeous papers from Blue Cardigan Designs, Jenni Bowlin rub-ons, AL “PERFECT” clear stamp and VersaCraft Cool Gray inkpad. I didn’t think I could DO heritage, but with the right photos (had to raid Mum’s stash) and some photoshopping, I’m keen to do more.

This one is of (L to R) ME, Nena and Rita in 1972 at Newmarket sitting on the ol’ Merc that Dad had bought the previous year. They STILL have that car! She’s a little temperamental now and constantly needs a service, but she gets you there…slowly at times. The photo is “nearly perfect” because Lilly was just born and fast asleep upstairs, so it must have been after September…..so 35 years ago! OUCH!!

This is Mum in 1962, she was 24. I’ve always loved this photo of her! I altered the colour a little in photoshop and I think it suits the papers really well. The photographer was Edmund Burke who was one of THE best in Brisbane at the time. She couldn’t really afford it (having only just arrived in Australia in 1958) but she wanted a nice photo of herself. Lucky for us, she did!!!

And Last Scrapper Standing is still going strong. Official registration has closed but there’s a “Just For Fun” gallery with some cool prizes.

Today is my FIRST class at INKREDIBLE. I had a really long, uninterrupted sleep last night and I feel like a million, trillion, kazillion bucks this morning. The boys took me to Cafe Tara for a delicious breakfast and beautiful Merlo coffee (the BEST coffee!!) and now they’ve given me a couple hours to myself.

My good friend Charmane Kock has just started her own design business called FUNKY FREESTYLE DESIGNS {CLICK HERE} this month featuring the cool new kits from Bon’s Scraps.

All the best gorgeous girl!! Start making some $$ instead of spending it (that’s a private joke BTW…have to put it in context – haha)

Looking forward to the class!! Lots of Cyber Cropping going on, as always. So many cool challenges to participate in, I wish I could fit them all in. I guess now I’m the one having to challenge others. What an intersting twist!!!

  1. Oi, achei seu blog pelo google está bem interessante gostei desse post. Gostaria de falar sobre o CresceNet. O CresceNet é um provedor de internet discada que remunera seus usuários pelo tempo conectado. Exatamente isso que você leu, estão pagando para você conectar. O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net(www.provedorcrescenet.com) no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso. If is possible add the CresceNet(www.provedorcrescenet.com) in your blogroll, I thank. Good bye friend.
