Monday Night Class #2

This is the second kit that I have designed for Monday Night Class, it is waiting on me to finish the instruction sheet. I have to really get on that and another one I have to write up before this baby arrives. I know the Bo Bunny paper for this one is on order and both Cindy and Christy are going to be on my case soon. I know now not to procrastinate the instructions to do it right after as this one has been waiting a month. I really like how it turned out a very nice Family scrapbook page. I hope to scrap some of our new family pictures on it when this baby arrives.

On the baby front, my doctor told me yesterday at my appointment that I was boring. I have lots of baby movement but absolutely no contraction or even Braxton Hicks to speak of. She said go home, rest up, we will see you next week and I mean you are boring in the 'nicest' way. For once in this pregnancy, it is nice to be boring. I'm finally getting a few things done around here so really not ready for baby to arrive until probably sometime by the end of next week/weekend...... besides it is a July baby..... if it comes in June that means I'll have to go back to work in June 2010 and I think July 2010 sounds much better!

Pregnant me!

I've been meaning to post these pictures, though I know I've expanded since they've been taken. The first one was taken at 25 weeks pregnant and the second one 2 weeks ago when I was 35 1/2 weeks pregnant. I'll be 38 weeks on Tuesday with a due date of July 7th, so hopefully it won't be long and I can pass from sicky pregnant to postpartum, tearing my hair out from no sleep Shannon!

Big news ....

One of the reasons that I haven't blogged much lately (other than having a crummy pregnancy) is that I have been doing more scrapbooking than stamping and have always felt this was my stamping blog however, the time has come that the two arts are going to have to share.

This past weekend was the Summer Scraptular hosted by - have you heard of Monday Night Class. I discovered them a year ago after my first trip to the Bloomin' Inn. They are monthly kit that are designed by several different women in Alberta. Cindy and Christy are the co-owners of this company and both of them can Scrapbook!

I am now a junior designer for Monday Night Class. I feel like I have joined the ranks of scrapping royalty in Calgary!! My first kit is in the test phase and product is on order. It is pretty crazy system, they have thought of everything to make sure the kits are perfect for their clients. It takes about 3-4 months for a kit to go from a designer hands to the website for sale, product has to be specially ordered, the instruction are gone over with a fine tooth comb by two testers. I think my first kit will be up in the fall. I have 2 kits designed right now that are waiting on me to finish the instructions but I am going to share my first kit with you today. I think it has taken a title change for the final phase but it comes with a full pack of chipboard letters so really you can make the title anything you want. This is the joy of these kits the come with so much stuff. Tons of embellishments and different categories like simple and quick, try something new etc etc .......

Anyhow, let me know what you think of my first kit. I'm pretty proud of it. I'll you a sneak of the next one soon. I have one using Bo-Bunny Abbey Road paper and a second one using Upsy Daisy Circle of Friends line, I must write the instructions for both this weekend!
