Lovley Day... the end. Started off a bit mad, with Megan fussing about what to wear to go to a friends party. We had nearly all her clothes down all over the place grrrr . In the end she wore her first choice!! She is still out and its so peaceful here :)

Nats has been off shopping all day to and Dan has been in and out all day. I SHOULD have got my homework done but....instead watched three eposodes of Greys season three. Even better than the first two, if thats possible. I have been sitting at my PC watching with tears streaming down my face LOL good job no one came to the door!!

I have done this weeks pencil lines sketch . No 28.

I was going to try to do 6" x 12" but managed 8 x 12 instead. Decorated my bazzill bling with cherry arts rubber stamps.
didn't scan too well as it is quite lumpy , with the chipboard clipboard.

What a day!!!!!!

I am shattered. After two weeks off work, it has been really hard to get back into the swing of things. I forgot how far I walked each day and how little I get to sit down. That i only get one coffee a day. Today we were three TA's down and my timetable got changed so many times. At one point, i was supposed to be looking after two different children ( in different parts of the school) and going to a meeting , all in my lunchtime...thankfully it got changed. Needles to say , my family are all walking on eggshells tonight.
I have loads of homework to do over the weekend too( for my NVQ course on Monday). So not much rest :(
Went to Dan's annual review yesterday, it was great, he had met all his targets ( BRILL!) and has had some new ones set. It is a lovely school, just wish it was nearer.
Absolutely no scrapping done since last week. Hopefully i will get some done at Wyverstone next week :) Really looking forward to going.

Happy Birthday Eva

This beautiful young woman is 13 today and she is my niece.
I have stopped scrapping for a little while to catch up on "other" work almost there...sigh.
Should be another quiet day as my boys are off to football this afternoon ( i think for the last time this season).

And another

Thought i ought to do a pencil lines sketch since i have a link to the site! I did have good intentions to do most of these but life gets in the way. I am sure that when i am back at work next week i shall be back to doing an average of one LO every two weeks!
I love the pizzazzill card ...great for monochromatic pages.
Time for a coffee i think :)

Two more LO's

Been scrapping most of the day as the children have been out playing. I will need to catch up on other stuff tomorrow though. I have homework ( from my course ) to do ..about four hours worth. And two lessons to plan for when i get back to work next week.
The LO on the underneath is this weeks "speshal" dare: "Contrasts". Used the Craft robo to cut the web and skull ( both from the templates thread on UKs)
The one on the top is the UKs weekly challenge: Use decorative edges, toes and something foreign in the LO. It is Nets and Rose from the weekend.

dan is out at a friends( just up the road) ..keeps popping in to ask if he can have a hampster..his friend has one to get rid of :( ....I really don't "Do" pets.

Nats is at her friends and staying for tea. They went to Diss yesterday on the bus and i counted the secs till they were back. It is only the second time that they have been together. They are hoping for sunshine tomorrow so they can go for a picnic in the park.

Meg is the only one home and watching Tv ( playing with Bratz ) :)

I couldn't resist the paper for the LO above..SO Megan!!LOL Its a bit noisey and seems to have scanned a bit darker ( probably all the 3D stuff)
