Happy Birthday Scrappin' Patch

It is Scrappin' Patch's 2nd birthday and they are celebrating! Ther eare a few cool challenges to be involved including a card challenge and scrap your scrapping challenge. So head over there and join in the fun.

I created a card for the card challenge which i am quite pleased with. The Prima journal cards are just perfect for whipping up a quick card.

My fellow scrapper and friend Bev features on my scrapping page. She was sucha sweetie atthe sketch book retreat and made a delicious Baileys Cheesecake. I had requested it some time before but I thought she would not remember but hey she did. So I crowned her Queen of the crop for not only completing the most pages over the weekend but for providing a really special supper. I used the fabulous Karen Foster papers.

I have also managed to finish some other layouts this week including ones I started at the Sketch book retreat. I put them away and got busy with other things but last night I decided to do a bit of clearering up and out! I haven't photo'd them yet and the day is so dreary so you will have to wait for those.

Onto some non scrapping news; on Friday night J and I managed to sneak out for dinner by ourselves which was so nice. I even dressed up for the occasion. Saturday morning was so incredibly quiet but I have to say quite enjoyable. I am not sure Granny and Grandad had a quiet morning and night though!!!

Saturday was our big day out to Mamma Mia and it was fantastic!!!! I haven't been to a musical for some time and it was a great treat. The performers were excellent and company just as good. We found Elloitt Stables and had a yummy lunch although Justin might have wished he could read a little French. He was not impressed when his Brochetta arrived with blue cheese on it!

So I am now off to make more classroom resoures; for those of you who do not know I am going back to the classroom full time. I have been out of mainstream education for a little while and although I am quite nervous I am excited to be teaching new entrants again! I now remember how much work it is but the bank account will be very thankful. We are going to work hard this next year so that we can move on and up to a bigger home.

Anyway I leave you with another layout that I created for the latest shabby chic challenge over at the patch. It is addorned with quite a few Prima products!!!!!

Thanks for your comments on my blog:) What a cute b&w layout! My sister is a teacher too - moving to Auckland next year - hope she can get a job - great holidays though even though you need to work during them but I think it is a great job to have with kids. Congrats on being on the SP DT - not sure I said that before
