Last weekend I went to a Scrapathon at the lovely Gayle's house. Gayle almost wasn't there (daughter..ripstik..cast.... uh oh!) but her friends and other daughters did a great job getting ready for the group of ladies that were coming along. There was a reward for "she who scraps most" but sadly it wasn't me! I was in the race for a little while though... I did manage to scrap 7 pages so that's enough of a reward for me.

I did this next one last night for my weekend challenge at Country Papercraft
 And this one for Challenges at University

Phew...wish I could scrap that many every week! Maybe if I wasn't working+catering+P&Cing+meeting teachers+creeating work rosters & soccer teams and fixtures, etc...I just might be able to!

I'm going to Uni!!!!

Well online Scrap Uni anyway!
I've just discovered a great new challenge at and I've decided to join in. Have done the first 2 challenges already so I can't fail completely!
This one for media staudies  - how we rely on modern media
 And this one Behavioural Science about the behavioural charactersists of self or someone close, so mine is about eldest DS who has juts turned 13 and gone off to high school. I'm sure there will be lots of changes coming so thought I'd better do the "now" before I can't remember how we was!

Right, better get back to studying..don't want to fall behind!

Some layouts to share

You'd think with all the fun photos I took at camping I'd have done a few lo's by now but life is just way too busy at the moment.
I did get one done..... I got eldest DS to stand behind each window after I realised 4 windows/doorways lined up at this old Telegraph Station. He's a bit out of focus but that's ok..He was in a dark hoodie anyway so not sure how much of his face would have been visible!
This next one is using some more of the January Kit at Countrypapercraft  I didn't love these papers but have to admit they were perfect for some of my Bali photos. This is my neice and 2 newphews who came to Bali with us. We forgot completely to take a photo of them together until the day before we left, but managed this nice one when we went to Jimbaran Bay to watch the sunset. Having said that I just realised we didn't really do any of just my immediate family. Have heaps of group and individual but didn't manage any typically touristy family shots! Oh well, guess when you take 7 children with you, there's not much time to set up formal photo's enough to know where they all are all the time!

Been working on my kit lo's for this month, with the newsletter due any day, so I can share those then.
My other 2 nieces dropped in yesterday and I got them to dress up and pose for me. They are only 1  and 3 but they were quite happy to play along and even do some of their own poses. Then I had to play on Photo shop (which I am new at and COMPLETELY unexperienced with!)  but I can see already that I am going to have  lots of fun with it.
