Ta Daaaahhhh

I have been scrapping! I know ... this is major!! Ummmm the last time I actually wanted to sit down and scrap would have been early September last year!!! Yesterday I sat down and did 3 LO's :-) (can you tell I am excited?!!! (doesn't take much does it!) LOL)
At Scrap-n-Crop's Art Retreat last Saturday Iris had made a LO using the scraps from our mini album project. So I decided to do the same. Actually the only thing I did the same or similar as her LO was brown cardstock, the cream patterned paper which was in our kit and the wording strips. The rest I just used bits and pieces left over from the kit stash. I am attacking the pile of photos I got printed from our NZ holiday last year :-)

'Spring' LO is for Scrap-It-Lah's January challenge. It's a sketch this month from Jessy. I've used October Afternoon patterned paper and the chipboard flower was left over from my SnC art retreat kit! (that kit is going to go a long way!).

'So Happy on a Swing' LO is for Scrap The Girls challenge site. It's also a sketch. So I finally opened my stash of Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday papers that have been calling me for ages!!!

And today is a sad day for the kids because their little friends Yara & Senna are moving FAR away! :( So they are having little farewell parties at school today. I popped into Yara's one this morning with the camera to get some pics ... here's these two having a hug for the camera!! (there's another little boy in the class that kept wanting to join in the hug too heheee - rather amusing for me!!)
So that's me ... you can think of me answering 10 million questions over the next few days/weeks why Aaron can't go and see Yara and why she can't come to play at our house anymore!!!
