Scrappin and taggin

My Auntie Julie stayed with us on sunday night while my Uncle was in Canberra for a conference. We had such a great time and talked non stop (actually, that would be mostly Auntie Julie, lol). She has been a beginner scrapbooker for about 8 years and brought down a suitcase full of products for me to go thru with her. I taught her how to use a few things and we put a minibook and the bones of a few layouts together. It was so lovely to have her here, and she even came to school in the morning to see Tassy's classroom and listen to a bit of school assembly.

Oh, I've just noticed the Designing Memories gallery has been updated so I can share my layouts for the Main Kit! And here they are!I've been tagged by Jolene and I have to list seven random things about myself.
Here are the rules ->

1. Once you are tagged, link back to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the RULES on your blog.
3. Post 7 weird or random facts about yourself on your blog.
4. Tag 7 people and link to them.
5. Comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged.

1. I have climbed the Harbour Bridge and Uluru (Ayers Rock).
2. I have heaps of trouble finding clothes to buy cos
a) I'm tall and pants just aren't long enough
b) I don't like my fair skin so don't wear shorts or skirts.
3. Plus I'm allergic to fake tan - how unfair is that!
4. I share my middle name Catherine with my daughter and my mother (as well as a few ancestors).
5. I was eligible for Longer Service Leave when I was 27.
6. My baby sister (nearly 9 years younger) introduced me to scrapbooking.
7. I HATE sport on TV. Of ANY description! I don't mind playing sport, but HATE it on TV! HATE IT, HATE IT!!!

Now I tag Lea, Moi, Sheree, Mardi, Rach, Kathie, Helen.

Gorgeous layouts - love how you used the wooden scroll for the flower base :)

Thanks for tagging me, lol. I think I've done that one already. At least, that's my excuse ;). No seriously, I do remember having to think very long and hard to think up seven things. So I'm not up to trying to think up another seven. You'll just have to scroll back through my posts to find it.

And I agree with you on point 7

Thanks for the tag Yvette:))
I have the same dilemma as Lea, I don't know seven people to tag. I will have a go at the questions though!!
LOVE your layouts-TFS.
And ditto about the sports-only tennis. I can only watch tennis. Everything else, thumbs down......

Sheree said...

Loving those layouts Yvette! Gorgeous!

Thanks for the tag. It was surprisingly tricky coming up with 7 things! I enjoying reading yours though...

Hope you and your beautiful family have a fabulous Easter!

Sheree xx

Yvette I am using Kathie's excuse because I distinctly remember asking Matty and he just looked at me with that.... um wtf expression.

Happy Easter I hope you had a wonderful 4 days and ate plenty of good chocolate.
