Scrapbooking Birthday Party, Bee's Special Tatted Clip, ATC on Parade

Kristine attended her classmate, Charmaine's birthday party at Laine's Papeterie in Wheelock Place last Sunday. The girls were all so excited to do a scrapbook page on their own, with plenty of guidance from the instructor. The shop here has a pretty cosy room, not so much as a party room, but with good working tables and space to comfortably accommodate up to 10 persons to do scrapbooking. The girls had a good time too dodging the camera while munching on finger foods and cake after completing their scrapbook page.
And finally, the girls proudly showing off their work!

I'm definitely more pleased with this specially-designed paper clip for Bee for her birthday, compared to Rafii's one. Some combination of alphabets simply turned out better than others. Expect more tatted alphabets on paper clip to come. One will be a free pattern for Georgia's Online Tatting Class later this year.
It was a fun evening on Wednesday at Bishan National Library. A number of us came with our ATCs and food for pot luck. We makan first, and spent a good bit of time admiring all our works, then had to work fast to put up the exhibition before we were chased out of the library at closing time! Do visit the exhibition "ATC On Parade" if you can. It will be on till 13 Aug 09, and we'll be there on 13 Aug evening for the usual trading session.

My ATCs on exhibit,
5 embellished with tatted motifs, 1 Zentangle-style butterfly,
1 paper-embroidered bear, 1 crocheted angel, 1 paper-cutting rooster.

The first 5 ATCs done by Joey, and the last 4 done by Kristine.
Among the careds are a paper-cutting bunny, paper-embroidered flower, irish folded flower, origami cranes, finger-printed shuttle, paper-pricked flower and bees.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! I wish you photos would enlarge so I could really see them.

What a brilliant idea for a birthday party - for little girls, anyway, I think little boys would prefer to kick a ball around!
As always, your children's designs are lovely - I wish I could visit the exhibition!

Thanks, Pam, I didn't purposely set the photos to not been able to enlarge. Just don't know why they couldn't enlarge, although I didn't reduce the photo resolution size.

Well, Maureen, you can see more photos of the ATC Exhibition here:

Thanks, Jon, hope I have better luck than in the previous draw!
