Schools back.... & some new creations

* WARNING - Lots of Piccies in this post *

Well the holidays are over already and we are in Week 2 of 11 at school. The kiddies in my class have come back a lot better behaved than how they left last term which is fantastic!! My class has our school assembly performance coming up in four weeks or so and I have finally decided what to do. We are doing a unit on Road Safety - so I have found two cute road safety songs for the kids to sing. I can visualise in my mind the kiddies with seatbelts, and big cardboard cars, so hopefully we can come up with something good in enough time!

Scrapping wise, I finally finished the Wedding Album I had been working on for Wayne and Rhianna. I wanted to make them a special little pressie, here are some piccies. I am very proud of it! After making this album I am lovin' the 'bling' that I got at the new scrap store in Geelong. Its soo gorgeous!!!




Also I finally completed the 1,2,3 challenge for April. The challenge was to use swirls and flourishes, no paint and gemstones.
There are some fantastic pages there at the moment, you gotta check it out!!



Products used: Basic Grey PP, Bazzill, Basic grey rub-ons, heidi swapp jewels, making memories glitter alpha stickers, cherry arte chipboard letters, heidi swapp flower sillhouettes, jewellery wire, beads, jewellery making flower brooches, mme transparency.



Some close ups:





Other stuff......Clint and I went to a friend of his families wedding the other day....I was in the search for a good piccie of us together, he was being silly and wouldnt be serious. We got a couple of good ones that I will definitely have to scrap....hopefully I can show you them scrapped soon.

Well I am hanging out for my first Poppy Ink Kit, from the sneak peak on the site it looks like in includes Sassafras Lass rub ons, has those queen and co border trim things that are new, some american crafts pp, thats all I can tell from the sneak peak piccie, but it is exciting!!!

I also placed an order for some of the new Elsie stuff on Scrapboxx, because I are saving to go overseas (its getting closer and closer!!) and the new Toby range is travel, I have basically ordered the whole line!! I have a feeling this stuff is gonna be popular and I didnt want to miss out! It is so yummo!!!

Whats ahead???.....Well I have my uncle and his partner coming to stay this weekend. My uncle is going to help Clinton concrete out the back of the garage...so that should be good to catch up with them, hopefully we will get to go out for tea maybe Saturday night.

My class 'Hugs and Kisses' is on this Friday night, I love that page, so I hope the girls doing it do too!!

The rest of my weekend is free, hoping to get some things organised for my assembly and maybe get some scrapping done!

Hope everyone had a nice ANZAC Day...Today would be my nans birthday, Happy Birthday Nan xoxo

Take care all
