expressions of interest!!!

i have been aproached about doing a kids is an idea i have been thinking about for a while but am unsure wether there really is interest in a monthly kids let me know what you think???? would you be intertested in bringing your child and if so what day, saturday or sunday would suit you best???? please bear in mind that the classes will have to cost a minimum of $10 per child....occasionally it might be a little less but if you keep that cost in your mind then you will be can either let me know what you are thinking by leaving a comment on the blog or email me directly..........

i will be running at least two kids classes during the next school holidays, maybe more depending on the need, at this stage there will be one in the middle of each week of the hols.......details will be posted on the blog a little closer to the keep an eye out!!!!!!!!!!!!

just because!

first up is my "slobby kisses" kids call them that instead of "sloppy"...i created this page for the february almanac at scrapboutique!! simple it is formation but effective i think??.....i have doodled around the edges and in the spaces on the chipboard..... i have inked and stamped the "kisses" chipboard and the little hearts then glossied them....... this will be a future class page! the colours used in the class will be different though so you will be able to customise it a little more........
"my mini me" is also an almanac page this time for March and the ingredible kid day! the photo lifts up to reveal journalling underneath about how much chantelle and i are alike ...i have also written about some of the ways i hope she won't be like me!!! this too will be a class page and there is colour variations for this as well so you can use a 5x7 boy or girl can also be either portrait or landscape......
now this page was purely done to suit the beautiful cherryarte paper....i didn't want to lose any of the gorgeous detail on the paper so kept it very simple...the love chipboard took me longer than the entire page!!! we paint it with red then with glitter glaze!! you can't see it properly in this photo but it looks great!!! i have used some small white rub-ons to finish off with just a little bit of a sub title........ this will be a class page this month as well......

you can throw other colours into your layout as long as i can see plenty of the required colours......good luck with your ideas!!!!
