Cropworks



Hi scrapbookers!

Yesterday my friend Chantal and l went to an event called Cropworks - an all day scrapbooking crop at Beaumont Hills. The ladies there were so fun and really easy to talk to, l'm looking forward to going again!

I made 2 double layouts and this card:

I made it using Marci Ballerina stamp and copics. =D Really happy with how it turned out!

I also made these cards, l made 3 of each. These however are not my design, they are out of a card pack from Stampin' Up!



Absolutely loving these stampin up products, l enjoy the workshops and meeting new people =)

Bit of a sad note to end on... there was a stray that turned up at Michaels house last weekend, we have been feeding it since (its so very very thin) and it is a lovely natured kitty. We had been hoping it was microchipped (as it was so affectionate and not scared of us like other strays are) so we took it to the pound, and they checked for a chip, but there wasn't one =( He will be kept there for 7 days minimum. I hope someone adopts him and gives him a loving home that he very badly wants. We would keep him, no second thought about it, but Michaels cat Graham isn't too fond of it, he hisses at it. The poor stray also has cat flu at the moment. The lady at the pound assured us he should find a home - being as friendly as he is. I hope she is right.

Anyway, until next time... xx

Engaged

Michael and l are Engaged!

Very excited =) It was so romantic and sweet - l've known it would be happening for a while - in February we went shopping for a ring, and came across a bridal set at Michael Hill jeweler. It is so gorgeous, l can't stop looking at it!

Its so strange getting presents and cards from relatives and friends - probably because l've been waiting for months for him to propose!

It all started on February 13th, the day before Valentines Day, and we were out shopping at Castle Hill Towers and he mentioned it! I was obviously extremely excited - we went looking at all of the jewelers and the bridal sets they had on offer, and l fell in love with my gorgeous one at Michael Hill.

Michael asked both of my parents permission! My parents were so excited, mum squealed in delight and dad was chuffed, shook Michaels hand and gave me a cuddle. Michaels parents were just as pleased! It was really nice to have them excited for us, and happy for us.

It all happened up at Leura on the 24th of July, we went looking at the boutique shops on The Mall, had lunch in a sweet cafe, then went looking at the beautiful Everglades garden (where my cousin got married) in the afternoon. It was there that he popped the question!! The ladies at the souviner room were squealing when we told them, apparently its the first engagement they have heard of happening there (and one of the ladies had been working there for over 10 years)

Such a wonderful thing to happen to us =)
