Have a Red & White Christmas~

Hello Girls,

Well my week Teaching Scrapbooking is well and truly behind me now!
I can report that it was a great success.
The local Press came into the School and took some lovely photo's of the children's work, that same day they appeared in the Evening Newspaper.

The books were fantastic.
The children that Angie and I worked with were so good. Not only were they very enthusiastic, but they were very well mannered and and were a pleasure to teach.
The first couple of days were quite taxing, the children (aged 7-13) took some time to grasp the concept, but trust me by the Wednesday, they knew exactly what was expected of them and were taking to it like a duck to water!
Each day we made 4 Layouts, and one small craft project to take home.
First day we made a door hanger, then a laminated place mat, next a small basket containing chocolates and a Tile coloured with porcelain markers, the Thursday we made about 6 small Birthday cards and the last day a decorated "Lunch bag".

I have been asked to run a small class workshop near Christmas, so they were obviously happy with my work.
I really enjoyed it, however It is a long time since I have worked full time for a whole week, so I cannot believe how tired I am!!

Onto my card for today.

I did not make this card this week, I made it last week but kept it until today.
It's a Leanne Ellis image, and has always been one of my favorites. I used a friends stamp a few weeks ago, but decided to buy my own once I knew I would love to use her!

I have used some of my new Christmas papers from Dovecraft, and a sheet of red mirri board. I did not want to colour all the image in so have just used a red pro-marker for her hair and flower and covered her dress with stickles. the lovely border is a Marrianne die.

Entering this card into:

Sounds like you had an exhausting but very rewarding week Debbie. The children will remember the week for a long time to come and what fab skills you've taught them!

Love your card, it's so pretty and very festive with the red mirri board. xx
