Cropping away


Well Crop For Kids was a big day yesterday, with Kell and I arriving at 8 or so to set up Kiti Q's shop. It was great fun meeting lots of new people, chatting away, scrapping away, shopping and selling (with Kiti Q). I believe the committee did really well and raised a substantial donation, but there is no final count just yet. Here is a pic of them all with their pink bunny ears! It's a bit small to be able to tell that tho.

This cute little miss is Phoebe Doyle - she was sitting at our table quietly painting, drawing, etc, and is just the cutest thing.

A shot here of Bon from Bon's Scraps, Kell from Kiti Q and Charmane Koch from the 123 blog, who are all joining together to host a Scrap N Chat next Saturday afternoon at Belgrave South. Should be a great chill-fest, listening to music, snacking, chatting, and you never know - maybe even scrapping ;) Anyone in the Melbourne area - esp. Eastern suburbs - why don't you join us? It'll be cool. Info on Kiti Q's site.

Here's Kell and I with our 'Kiti Q' coloured outfits. And Kell has the funkiest little cat necklace that we found out shopping on Thursday. Gorgeous.

Here is one of the two layouts I managed to complete at the crop yesterday. Yes, I managed to scrap. I even talked to people too. A bit. LOL. Are you shocked? I made a real effort to socialise and it paid off - I met so many great people. Anyhow, this layout is for the Corinne Delis 'Finding You' workshop I'm doing. I also got to meet Vita Thai at the crop day, she is completing the workshop as well. It's a bit of an intense layout, but what can you do, hey.

I was SO tired last night, I went to bed at 7:45pm. And slept. Sienna was in bed with us - can't remember why that came about - so it wasn't the most restful night ever, but I didn't have to get up until 8, which was quite amazing.

I gotta go the shops later today. Ash is already mostly in size 2, can you believe it, and just doesn't have any tops with long enough sleeves. He takes after my dad and I in that regard. So I have to pick some up. Also some ingredients for dinner, as Ben and I postponed our anniversary dinner til tonight, due to crazy busy-ness during the week. So we are making some special stuff and staying in, just for a change. For a change on our anniversary I mean, we do always stay in ;) But we'll have some yummy wine and seafood and stuff.

Almost forgot, here is the limited edition Rouge de Garance stuff Kiti Q just got in - I SO wanted to play with it yesterday, but it was on display. I'm sure Kell will let me have it today tho - won't you Kell ;) ;) She'll be adding it to the site this weekend I believe, and is going to sell the papers individually as well, how cool is that!

Have a great long weekend, everyone!
