The color room #29 card and layout.

I have decided to do a layout and card each week for the color room so then when i need one for a birthday i have them on hand.I have already given away last weeks two cards.We have so many members in the family that you need a supply on hand.

All the papers that i have used for this week are Heidi grace papers They went well with the color rooms palette this week.Lydell's sketch for the card and layout was really pretty this week.I had a great birthday
and it was nice to catch up with family and have dinner too.Not long now until our 4th grandchild is born maybe two more  weeks.Fun times ahead.

It would be great to see some of my scrap cyber friends help me with helping Rainer

This is a notice for my friend Gigi and her son Rainer if you can help at all wether to do a class or make a donation any little bit will help.Here is the link to Gigi's blog


I'm very excited to announce that I will be running my first online class on Monday 18th October.

This class is to raise money so that our family can continue with Rainer's medical intervention and behavioural therapy. Currently, our Early Intervention funding through the Federal Government expires on 18th October. While this has been extremely beneficial, we would like the opportunity to continue along the path this funding has placed us on.
When Rainer was finally diagnosed in 2006, we made a decision as a family that I would "retire" from Secondary Teaching and become his full-time carer. It was more important to devote my time, energy and mental health to my own children, rather than others'. We dropped a wage, and our costs tripled as we searched for answers for a very misunderstood and poorly resourced condition.

I went through 4 General Practitioners, 2 Kinesiologists, 2 Speech Therapists, 2 Occupational Therapists, 1 Psychologist and 1 Dietician before things began to finally take shape with Rainer's recovery. There have been many mistakes made and promises broken in these 4 years, but I have no doubt there'll be many more!
Rainer has additional medical issues which exacerbate his condition. Most prominent are his Sensory Issues and gut health. These have a great effect on his behaviour which makes his attendance at school difficult. Hence, we have home-based behavioural therapy 4 afternoons per week following his morning sessions at our local regular school.
So, I am very excited to be able to put together what I think is a fab-o class for you!!!! Hopefully, the first of many.

ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of the funds will go towards Rainer's therapy and intervention. I think you all know me by now to guess I won't go out and buy the new Monaro LOL

And we have some fab-o sponsors for this class

Firstly, my dear friend, mentor and just down-right hilariously creative girl...Ngaire Bartlam
Has donated a super cute canvas which I have been ogling for a wee while now.
Another beautiful soul, Krissy Christie of Wicked Princesses
is donating a special little pack of goodies.

is also donating a wonderful little pack of goodness from her new store.
And my dear old friend Melissa Arnold; Creative Memories Unit Leader extraordinnaire, has offered a great new embellie pack for one participant.

well i am in shock i had a call this morning

I had a call this morning from the lovely Susan at Grant Archivals letting me know that i had one there competition Grace Taylor “ Create Something Beautiful” contest.
I was so happy to hear this as i love alot of there papers and stamps well you all know that i have a stamp fetish.I have one $500 dollars worth of products and that is massive .

This clock was also made from the Grace Taylor papers the are so beautiful i have cut up the flowers the bird and the music papers and modpodged to the
chipboard clock.Do pretty i think.When i first found these papers i searched Adelaide for them every shop had sold out of this pack.By chance one day i went to Marion Big W and alas i found them.If you are lucky enough to have them I'm sure you would have used them by now.I have kept some as favourites lol.
The competition winning entry i love this layout and the picture The flowers are handmade from the Grace Taylor papers.

Susan has also asked me to be on there design team which of course i said yes.They are still working out the nuts and bolts of this so it should be soon.It is so great to be working on a Australian manufacturer design team.You can buy there products from spotlight,K mart ,Big W and lincraft.That's fab i think.These were all the projects that i sent in for the design team and the competition.The layout Joy was chosen for the winner of the comp.
