LADIES CLUB GOING SCRAPPY - Saturday, 28 June 2008
From left to right: Michelle, Louise, Liesl, Brenda and Leoni
My sister's youngest daughter, Liesl (think this makes Liesl my niece ... never know the correct English relative names) and her girlfriends have got a Ladies Club going. It is quite a nice arrangement where the girls try out something different once a month. From learning a new craft to belly dancing. July 2008 was the month the girls decided to get familiar with scrapping photographs and yours truly was Tha Teacha.
Liesl arrived on Saturday morning sighing a sigh of relief after having had to babysit Zander and Alisha, Heidi her sister's two toddlers. I must say, it can be quite daunting for someone who does not have kids of her own to babysit ... I can wholeheartedly relate to Liesl's exhaustion. So there was lots of excuses coming from Liesl i.e. had no time to put make up on, my hair is a mess and my clothes just thrown on ... ja, ja, ja Liesl, take it from me, you don't have to do anything to yourself as you are a natural beauty.
Liesl and her four girlfriends got the drill down on the basics of scrapping i.e. what is allowed and what not, etc. The girls all had to bring photos for the 'CUTE AS CAN BE' layout which is also selling in kit format on Doing Life's Online Shoppe http://www.doinglife.co.za/. None of them had done any scrapping previously and I must say they were really excellent first time scrappers, very neat as well.
Apart from the scrap lesson, the girls really got down to some nice chatting and catching up on every one's doings. Obviously there were also quite a few tea breaks. So the 'Cute as can Be' kit which usually takes about 3 hours to scrap, took just under 6 hours to complete ... a good indication of all the fun that was happening on the side. Michelle, I hope that you were not offended with all the teasing from Tha Teacha's side ... you are just such a nice person to tease ... looked like you did take it in your stride.- Tha Teacha Signing Off
