Hi there girls
All this toyi toying is fast making my lovely after glow from the World Cup Soccer fade to a dull dark cloud. What a great pity. Just when we were all feeling so unbelievably positive and realising the potential of this lovely country of ours.
So, maybe it’s fitting that this week’s page is of the Soccer World Cup II, lest we forget that great event. This time it has loads of info all over the page. (Just as well as last week we were all kind of battling to remember who was in the 3rd place playoff! Just a month after the big event!). You can either add your own journaling or use mine which was basically just recording who the teams where, a bit about Bafana Bafana, Zakumi, the vuvuzela etc. As you can see, I also got ALL 32 flags on the page! I’ve used:
1 jumbo portrait
1 jumbo landscape
5 (2up) landscape
I’ve got some great stock making its way to Scrapbook Junction – lovely Cosmo Cricket paper (gorgeous!), chipboard embellishments, loads of flowers, tote bags, Tombo glue, black and white brads etc.
Next week’s evening class will be on both Tuesday 31st and Thursday 2nd. The reason for this is that because the following week I’m off to Cape Town for a little jollie patrollie from Thursday 9th until Tuesday 14th so SBJ will be closed over those days. Still open for all the other days though so no need to fall in a heap. (I do have to laugh at how we think – saw these fabulously cheap air tickets to CT, snapped them up only to then realise we’d then need to: hire a car, find accommodation, eat out all day, buy all that Cape wine…..I think I’ve been suckered)
Please do remember to book for workshops and also, I’d be so grateful if you would please cancel if you’re not able to make a booked workshop. And please do feel free to pop in any time of the day or night, just check to make sure there’s someone here to help you.
I’ve got loads of paper kits here that people have asked me to keep. Please make a plan to pop in and collect and pay for them.
A very happy birthday to Kelly Horton for next Friday. Have a good one Kel.
Surely by now you’ve booked for the Hillcrest Primary Fundraiser on the 18th September and the Megacrop on the 13th November? Hu?
That’s about all I have for this week. Hope to see you all soon. I’ll end with this weeks chuckle……..
SMART ARSE ANSWERS 2008
It was mealtime during a flight on a British Airways plane:
'Would you like dinner?' the flight attendant asked the man seated in the front row.
'What are my choices?' the man asked.
'Yes or no,' she replied.
A flight attendant was stationed at the departure gate to check tickets.
As a man approached, she extended her hand for the ticket and he opened his trench coat and flashed her.
Without blinking an eyelid she said,
'Sir, I need to see your ticket - not your stub.'
A lady was picking through the frozen turkeys at a branch of Sainsbury's but she couldn't find one big enough for her family.
She asked a passing assistant,
'Do these turkeys get any bigger?'
The assistant replied, 'I'm afraid not, they're dead.'
The policeman got out of his car and approached the boy racer he stopped for speeding.
'I've been waiting for you all day,' the bobby said.
The kid replied, 'Yes, well I got here as fast as I could.'
When the policeman finally stopped laughing, he sent the kid on his way without a ticket.
A lorry driver was driving along on a country road. A sign came up that read ' Low Bridge Ahead.'
Before he realised it, the bridge was directly ahead and he got stuck under it. Cars are backed up for miles. Finally, a police car comes up.
The policeman got out of his car and walked to the lorry's cab and said to the driver,
'Got stuck, eh?'
The lorry driver said,
'No, I was delivering this bridge and ran out of petrol!'
SMART ARSE ANSWER OF THE YEAR 2008
A teacher at a polytechnic college reminded her pupils of tomorrow's final exam.
'Now listen to me, I won't tolerate any excuses for you not being here tomorrow. I might consider a nuclear attack or a serious personal injury, illness, or a death in your immediate family, but that's it, no other excuses whatsoever!
'A smart-arsed guy at the back of the room raised his hand and asked,
'What would happen if I came in tomorrow suffering from complete and utter sexual exhaustion?'
The entire class was reduced to laughter and sniggering.
When silence was restored, the teacher smiled knowingly at the student, shook her head and sweetly said,
'Well, I suppose you'd have to write with your other hand'.
