My First Online Class tonight

As part of my Guest Designer position with Diva's. I get to teach my first online class tonight. All chat will be in the Divas chatroom with all the instructions posted on the free online class blog.

Today I have made Kloe an outfit for her "Olden Days Dress Up" Day at school on Friday. Luckily Jarred is home sick today and very nicely acted, as a model for me. He is almost the same size as Kloe. But shhhhhh.....I didn't tell you he was wearing a dress LOL! When I put it on him he said "Mum, you are not allowed to look at me, coz I'm in a girls dress" so sweet. Hopefully it will fit her. Otherwise it will be some quick adjustments. It is just made with Calico and an old cot sheet for the apron.

Other news:

We are getting lots of eggs. One of the new chook lays, double yokers every few days. The eggs are huge. The kids are very impressed with these.

We are getting lots of broccoli and cauliflower from the veggie garden. I made it with cheese sauce on it the other night and everyone ate it. The kids are not to fussed on cauliflower, but with cheese sauce it's a winner.

I have been busy preparing for Jarred's birthday. He is having a 'Dinosaur' theme birthday party with 14 of his friends. It should be a lot of fun.

Scrapping news - another page accepted by Scrapbooking Memories. I was also asked to do another project challenge for them. This time it was a single layout and card. I got a huge pack of goodies to play with. My last product challenge I did for them, was displayed at their stand at the Brisbane Papercrafts Exhibition, that was held over the weekend. I was very excited when they asked me, if they could display it. I haven't had a lot of time for scrapbooking recently, I just need to find another few hours in each day.

**edited to add** I also won the month kit layout competion, at Bon's and also the monthly competition at Scenic Route. Lots more goodies coming my way! Thanks to Rach, for making me enter, both of these comp's.

Kloe should look the part in the Dress.
Both Boys are home today and both sick?
You seam to be going from strength to strength with the Scrap booking keep it up. Must have been something to find your work on show in Brisvagas.

You are one seriously clever Mum. What a gorgeous costume for Kloe, that cake for the gorgeous Miss M and of course your scrapping talents (congrats on yet ANOTHER SM project).
I wish I was half as organised and half as talented as you LOL.

Oooo I love the dress! Im sure Kloe will adore it. Sounds like she is doing well at her new school :)

Congrats on another page acceptance, and the wins- but you always have done stunning work!

Kids say hi to everyone- we aren't moving, decided we love it here too much at the moment, although it would be nice to coffee- but will be down your way in August if you want to catch up?
