Well Saturday was our quarterly all day team training event and we had to make the dreaded swaps !!! I am not used to having to produce so many cards at once so it is a challenge for me, and to add to this my upline Julie also asked us all to make our swaps on a male theme. I know this put a lot of people out of their comfort zone and i was convinced everyone would opt for clockwork, but not so. Anyway because i was also doing an inspiration station, I didn't quite finish my swaps, and just thought the ladies could add whatever they wanted to make the card suite an occasion, but I did put an upgraded version on my swap on the table I used for my inspiration station :) so here it is ....

Happy to still be here having survived the crazy wind the other night! Robyn text me saying I think we might wake up in Oz, I think she was right but thankfully all was in tact round the house and garden, well the Arbour had blown over and the BBQ was well down the garden but all seems ok. I may have mentioned that I have been busy crafting in preparation for my Upline Julie's training day tomorrow, Lesley and I are doing a scrapbooking inspiration station, but we have thrown a couple of other things in for those who don't scrapbook. I know it's not until tomorrow, and following the event I will be able to post all the other projects I have made, but in the meantime, here is a birdhouse I have re-vamped in the gorgeous Stampin Up Tea for Two papers.
|Not sure about the large flower on the front, but i had made it at the weekend and it was lying on my desk so i thought, yeh go on !!!|

I have been on a scrapbooking frenzy lately, and have been doing a lot of Stampin Up scrapbooking in preparation for an inspiration station I am doing at my upline's all day training event in April. I don't want to post photo's until the day has passed but last week I had a lovely scrapping day with my friends Lesley and Kathy. Lesley and I had been planning to follow Charlie Jones Magic of Oz youtube demo for some time, and finally got around to it on Wednesday. Oz is one of my all time (old time) favourite movies, and I loved this album when I saw it. It was nice to take a break from what I had been doing and do something totally self indulgent and just for "ME". With the scraps of paper left over from the album I made this 12 x 12 layout .... not quite finished but almost there.
Well it seems we have been told about some of the colour changes for the forthcoming catalogue in June. I know it's a while away but a lot of people have been worrying about there favourite 2012-2013 in colours and the possibility that they may be going to loose gorgeous colours like Pool party and Wisteria Wonder, well the good news is they are going to be absorbed into the main colour families i.e. Subtles, Neutrals, Brights and Regals. Here's a little chart which shows the proposed changes .... Thanks Nicky Worrilow for posting this on FB......
