Bookings now open- Scraphaven classes

I've been busy playing some gorgeous My Minds Eye Papers, and have created some new classes for Scraphaven!  For these 2 classes participants will purchase one "Hip Hooray" paper kit in either a boy or girl pack (or both if they like!) and with a few add-ons of cardstock, twine and ribbon we'll be creating a single layout and a double layout over two classes, with enough left over for everyone to create some more at home!
Here's some sneak peaks of the first class on Friday 11th November (10.30am or 7.00pm).  This one will be a single layout using a 5x7 photo and it can be any theme!

The next two are sneaks from the Birthday themed double layout that we will be completing on Friday 25th November (10.30am or 7.00pm).  This layout is designed to get lots of photos from the birthday celebrations on a layout, and you could get anything from 5-10 photos on the layout!

You'll need to let Di know as soon as possible of you will be joining us so she can order the packs in for everyone!  Please email or call her on 0404 266 296 to reserve your spot (Please note that if you have sent at email to and have not received a reply please send another email to the address above as she has had some problems with the other email address)

Crafty Sketches- November 2011

Welcome to a new month, and a new Sketch from Crafty Sketches.
My sample is based on this sketch.  I moved the  title and a few extra elements, but I am sure you can still see the bones of the sketch

I have used the fun and bright Echo Park "Playground" papers, and the start of a favourite phrase from the book of Joshua 1:6.
For your chance to win a prize from the fabulous sponsors upload your take on the sketch to the blog before  the end of November!
