1 more sleep til holidays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well I am doing a 'happy dance' today, as I have one more sleep until I can officially 'sleep in'.....HOLIDAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well sorta....................

My plans? How am I gonna amuse myself ? You ask??? ......... BY DOING NOTHING!!! I'm working most of the first week at the Council School Holiday Program in Geelong (I'm a sucker for punishment), then the second week I'm having 'ME' time, with no plans made yet, I am loving the thought!!!!!

School wise.......Reports went home with no hassles, Interviews went pretty smoothly - no major issues :o)

Next term we are doing a Unit on 'Weather', I cant wait, experiements and all!!!
Home wise.......I'm finding it hard to balance my time lately......between devoting 'me' time (SCRAPPING) and housework.....and school work....... its just so not working.....You clean freaks out there would cringe at the pile of laundry I have at the moment that needs to be put away......'out of sight, out of mind' doesnt work when its in the bedroom getting bigger and bigger!
I finally received my HUGE Love Elsie order!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I basically ordered all of the Toby line and most of the Roxie range......yummo!

And I have an idea for how I can scrap with my Roxie pp............ Charm is setting a 'Just for July' challenge, to take a photo everyday and scrap it, I thought I mini album using the Roxie papers would be perfect! I am incorporating another challenge into this album. Elsie has set a challenge, which I found out through Pip's blog to take a photo of yourself everyday for a year. Knowing for me that is virtually impossible, I am going to 'TRY' to do it for the month of July......and journal in the mini album, with the photo, something about me - thoughts, feelings, etc - on that day. Phew!! What a challenge, well for me anyway!

Over at Bon's, we are doing a 'Scrapbooking Chinese Whispers', and I was last in group 3. When it came to my turn, I worked on mine right away to get it up just so I could see how everyones elses were.....the idea of the game/challenge.....Is that the person who starts send a photo of their page to one person....then that person interprets the page into their own version and creates a page and passes it on....and so on and so on......til it gets to the very end of the line (me this time) and then all the pages are slowly revealed one by one! It was great fun, check it out at Bons to see the others!
Here is mine:

Products used: Crate paper pp, Petaloo flower, bazzil bitty blossoms flowers, buttons, Hambly Screen Prints rub ons, Making Memories swatch book rub ons, Chipboard Letter

Also my new Poppy Ink kit is due mind July, I think has more Love Elsie in it!! More Toby stuff, which wont hurt at all :oP Entire kit contents is revealed the 6th July....

Next page is one I did around the start of the month but have kept forgetting on uploading.....my June Monthly Challenge page at Bons! It was a Royal theme and bling.

Products used: Bazzill bling pp, basic grey pp, american crafts rub ons, heidi swapp rub ons, chipboard letters, gold paint, kaisercraft jewels.

I recieved my commissioning letter from Scrapbooking Memories today, my 'Mum taught Me' page is going to be published in Vol 9, Issue no 6!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Other news.......I am keeping up with the Book of ? Challenge at Bons, which I am very proud of :o)

Nothing else at the moment.......will post again soon, after all I will have a bit more spare time over the next 2 weeks :oP

Take care xoxox
