karate grading

So proud of both my kidlets..... yesterday they both went for their karate grading.
Shanice totally kicked arse and Connor was so focused on doing all his moves precisely.
They are now Orange belts :)

just some scrapping

so...... its been a while
things have been just crazy here in the shepppard-morris household which is nothing unusual. and there is far too much to catch you up on, so i'm just going to share my latest scrapping that i did at the May retreat.

I love this photo.... and i'm loving this layout cause i got to use lots of yummy prima. Nic and i spent the night making heaps of different ribbon flowers and i added one to this and ive been saying for yonks that i wanted to try painting with glimmermist which i loved and painted the bird.

I love this layout too, but hating photographing layouts and it came out a little blurry
I had to buy some Studio Calico to see what all the fuss was about and to be honest i'm not a fan, but they seemed to work well this this photo
And another little addition to add to my Scrap Girls retreat album
I spent nearly most of the weekend at the may retreat trying to make a ball. It seemed easy enough in theory but after quite a number of pull aparts and some help from Anne I finally made this........

and this was only the practise run........ so i could eventually make the proper ball and came up with this

the end result isnt how i originally hoped, but i'm over it now and im moving on.
But i am pleased that i tried something a bit left of centre.
