I'm Back!!!!


 Good Morning everyone.   I hope I have some followers left.   Since my last post which was on the, eeekkk, 30th May, life has definitely got in the way of my blogging.
In early June, Jean, Kerry and I went to the Scrapbooking and Papercraft Convention & Expo in Brisbane.  We had an absolute ball!!!!
There was a fantastic line up of overseas talent at this year's show.
Tim Holtz, Eric & Irina from La La Land, Mike & Jan Marie from Flourishes and Mike from Cheery Lynn dies, were all literally swamped with people.
It was the best show I've ever attended.
Below are two cards that I made in May.  The original design of these cards was actually the top of a box.  I can't remember the name of the lady who made said box but I would like to thank her for the inspiration.

The last photo is my pride and joy, me with Tim Holtz.  Considering the amount of people lining up for photos and to watch his demonstrations, I'm amazed that I actually managed to get a photo with him.
Thanks Tim!!!!

Now that I've started the ball rolling, so to speak, I'll be back with more cards that I've made in the intervening months, tomorrow.
A big thank you to the ladies that emailed me to find out how I was and to ask if I was coming back to blogging.
It's a grey miserable day here at the moment and I have the flu, but I'm staying inside and resting.
Take care everyone,
