a bit of a update

Well i have not updated since we came back from our fab welsh hol as i have been busy enjoying the rare sunshine up here in scotland and taking the boys out for some days outs.

We also took the plunge and got a new family pet. Regular readers will know i lost my beloved 11 year old shih tzu and grandad all within a space of 4 days at christmas time. Well we decided to use some of my inheritence to get a new pet to celebrate the life of both my grandad and Clause.

So here he is. welcome to Koby our 10 week old shih tzu dog. He is just gorgous and has brought us so much fun already.

Also i have been playing around with alcohol inks and gesso in an attempt to make some arty atc's for one of the challenges for our scrap attack event. I made such a mess of my hands but it was fun.

speaking of our event, we have the classes finalised and they are a corker.

Class 1
Technique Mirror
In this class you will learn how to make 8 technique tiles that will be mosaic onto a wooden framed mirror. For this class you will need to bring along 2 3 x3 photocopied pictures.

Class 2
Christmas ATC's and purse
In this class you will make a set of 9 gorgeous ATC's using a stunning background technique as your base. These ATC's can be turned into Christmas cards as well. As well as the ATC's you will adapt a 7 Gypsies purse into a wonderful storage item. Two classes in one.

Class 3
Wooden Christmas Tree.
During this class you will create an amazing centre piece for your Christmas decorations with this wonderful wooden display tree.
Photo's are needed for this project (sizes to be confirmed)

Class 4
7 Gypsies accordion book
7 gypsies are well known for their eclectic style which is evident in the book you will be creating today. Tags, tabs, flaps and bradz, what more could you want.

Class 5
Smile mobile
A truly attention grabbing talking point to have hanging in your home. This mobile is decorated with cosmo cricket love notes range.

Class 6
Wooden waterfall book
A cute wooden waterfall book decorated in pink and orange Blonde Moments papers. Lots of ribbons and girly things to satisfy your inner diva.

And i will leave you with a few more sneak peaks of the new august kit that will be launched soon from Carolinez craftz kitz.

Will pop back again soon
