Hi all,

Recently my husband Michael, daughter Madeleine and Mick's friend Glenn recorded an album under the band name Timeline.

Maddie sings, Michael plays guitar and Glenn plays bass (the percussion is synthesised).

Here is the link to their MySpace site where you can hear 4 of the songs.

Click there =>>

We are all blown away by the fantastic sound of Maddie's voice.

The songs were written by Michael. The vocals all arranged by Madeleine. Amazing, considering she is only 9!!

So, come and have a listen!!

Its been a long time between drinks . . . .

Wow, its been a while since I have been on here {blushing}.

I have been very busy and also very lazy!! I am teaching several days a week in the community now, so that keeps me on my toes. I teach knitting and crochet on Wednesdays and cardmaking on Mondays and twice on Thursdays. Next year I have the opportunity to teach a couple more days a week too, and hopefully that will pan out!

Since I am here, I thought I would share with you some things I have been creating and teaching. I have been away from my blog since March, so there is a lot to put up here! I will put it up over several days.

Also, its CC weekend at Little Scrapbook Shop this weekend, so I will pop my challenge up after it has gone 'live' (but that is another post :) ).

I also have some news on the Stampin' Up! front, but that is also a rant for another time.

Enjoy the photos to follow. Drop me a line and say hi - I'd love to hear from you.

This is a card created using bleach. (sorry, the pic is quite blurry - will fix asap)

Products used: Stampin' Up! stamps, RST verse stamp, Cuttlebug, distressing tool

The following cards were created for Little Scrapbook Shop.
Click on the photo to go to the forum for a closer look and product details.

This layout was created using an Artist Trading Card as the inspiration.
The gorgeous young man in the photo is Angus, the son of a good friend of mine, Jenni.
For a closer look and to see the rest of the collection I made using the set of ATCs,
click on the photo and it will take you to the LSBS forums where you will find
all the information about products etc.

This gorgeous calendar is a little something I created while away at Little Scrapbook Shop Retreat in August 2009. I love dragons and loved these chipboard dragons I found in the shop!
