A Serious Blog Update ....

Ok, so I have been "blogging slack" and for that I must apologise, but I have been away, scrapping, attending concerts and getting things ready for bosses day - so hopefully I will be excused!
Here are some layouts that I have recently completed. It has certainly been fun and I am slooowly getting Grant's album done. Still have a bit to do and time is getting less - he turns 21 on 4 January 2009, so now you understand why I need to do lots of scrapping!!!!

This was the morning of Christmas 2006 and was taken of Grant & Lauren before we went to Joanne's place for the day.

This was Christmas eve at Debbie & Warren's place where the children were doing silly things on the trampoline and inside. This kit can be purchased from Doing Life .
This was also taken on Christmas Ever and I had asked the children to pose specifically so that I could send the pictures to Leanne to see. They co-operated very well!! This was a scraplift from one of Desire's designs (the prisoners)
This was taken on Christmas day at our house with all the Ramsay's. It is also a kit that can be bought from Doing life.



A few weeks ago Dereck, myself and 11 other scrappers (including two other men) went to Inkungu Estate in the Berg for 4 days. It was absolutely wonderful and Desire (check out her blog for the full story - I couldn't have told it better!) designed 3 layouts for each of us which we then completed - amongst other scrapping that we had taken with us. Below are my three layouts that I did:This was on the 15 June 2008, the day after the scrap day held at Makaranga. Dereck and I stayed over as it was my birthday and then our anniversary on the 16 June.
This was some of the ladies who attended the scrap day.
This was the Sani Stagger that Dereck took part in - I chose to be a helper and did the scenic route!!

Hi Michelle, was missing your blog posts so am very pleased to see that you are back "on-line". The layouts are stunning! No wonder you haven't had time to blog!

Lovely layouts Michelle...I wouldn't mind doing a few of Desire's classes myself. Your time at the Lodge sounds prettty cool to me.
