Dylan Hartung scrapping fundraiser

Well myself, Carmen and my aunty had a fantastic weekend in mornington. The fundraiser for Dylan was very sucessful with just over $10,000 being raised!! Still cannot believe that is how much was raised, its quite a large amount considering there was only just over 100 people there. The friday night we just spent relaxing and getting our things organised for the fundraiser. At the fundraiser I finished one page (you can see attached to the post), and just spend the rest of the time chatting and watching everyone else, haha. There was too much to see I could not sit long enough to actually scrap.

After the fundraiser we headed over to Paper2 in mornington, I am always blown away by the size when I go there. We ended up doing the 7pm - midnight super crop and had a good time as we were able to shop if we needed to there. At midnight we headed back to Mandys van and scrapped til 5am!!! I spend that time scrapping on the wooden letters. I did a c and r and then began ones for our house, saying H O M E.....so they should be nice when they are done

Have not done much else since then, work was crazy and I had a mini-breakdown at the start of the week (I dont think being mega tired helped!) and are still feeling tired from wearing myself out then. So I dont think I will be up to much, recouperating, and cleaning this house!!!

I was chosen as one of three Wildcard entries at Embellished, I was bummed to get out so quickly and was happy when the DT chose me to have another go. You can find my new entry here.....we had to use beading of some sort and stitching. I am happy with it, and I think it prob reflects the way I felt at the start of the week :)

Well I payed my deposit for the Scrap Patch retreat in early March next year. It is right around the time of my birthday so it should be a nice weekend, I always have a ball at them!!

Well I am gonna leave now cos I only have 1/2 an hour to get ready to go out for tea....

New layout for Scrap Patch

Well nothing too interesting to post at the moment. Have not been up to much at all. Well I was not successful with the Little Scrapbook Shop DT but considering who I was up against and who the scrapping Dt pick was no wonder!! Celeste was the lucky chosen one and her stuff is just fab!! Click on her name to view her Little Scrapbook Shop gallery. Celeste has a special feature in the new SC, you can spot her pages anywhere with those cute little girls!!!

Anyways last night was a very quiet one. I made tea (yes on a sat night that is unusual!!) then settled down to do a page for The Scrap Patch . I am really happy with how it turned out. I'm happy with how it turned out....bit different.

Not much else on the scrap front from me, though I did get the new Elsie book from Embellished and I just love it!! Also picked up a few alphas and things at their 30% off sale last week. On Friday (??I think) I put an order in with BB, they had 75% off selected Lil Davis items. The gorgeous flowers with words like little one, love blooms etc were $1.95!! Picked up a few of them, cant wait til they come.

Also Mandy, Carmen and I are going to the fundraiser in Frankston for Dylan. It should be a great day and hopefully a lot of money will be raised. Cant wait for another weekend of just scrapping!!

Take care Raquel xoxox

Back to school.....

Well the first week back at school was nice, I was actually missing the kids too, so it was great to see them all again. So much to do and cover during the next 5 weeks before reports are written!! I'll be running around like a headless chook at school for a while.

I have found I am making a conscious effort to have lots of ME time lately. I really tried this week not to spend hours and hours at school after the kids had left. Now I am not quite sure if I succeeded because it is only the first week back, or if it is because I actually can leave at a decent hour becuase the whole classroom wont fall apart if I am not there!! haha....hmm not sure yet. Anyway back to scrapping! I found myself scrapping sun, mon, tues and wed night this week!! That is a hige effort for me. I completed 3 Everyday Moments comp layouts, 1 double layout and one layout for the Embellished Idol competition. Which I found out this morning I am into Round 3!!! I cant wait to do round 3, the topic is minimalist. Not sure how I will go doing this style myself but I love seeing other peoples minimalist pages.

Well I ended up applying for the Little Scrapbook Shop Dt, we find out at some stage tonight. But I am sure there is a lot of talented people applying so I have not gotten my hopes up!!

Also wanted to congratulate someone (names are not being disclosed on the site) for making it through to the third round on Scrapboxx Search for a DT member (You know who you are :) ) I can spot your layouts anywhere!! haha. Well done!!

Well I am off to make a card for a friends bday....I'm leave you with my recent double layout... I will have to make a separate post for my EDM layouts
