And now for some pics from our Melbourne Cup Scrapping Day.

Our hats....Lisa put her tiara on, Donna was fascinating, and Sami and I scrapped ours !

A couple of closeups of my hat. I used a Prima flower, glittered leaves, feathers, bling, and a birdcage embellishment that I'd made.

The class project that I taught on the day...

Some pics of what the girls made in class. This is Lisa's

Donna made this...

And here's Sami's.

Unfortunately I didn't get to take a photo of Carla's lovely project before she left (I can tell you it was very pink!)
