Ah Report time

Above are a few of the LOs and and cards i have created recently
The last card is for week 2 of THE BUILD IT UP COMPETITION over at SCRAPBOOK CAPITAL. The1st and 2nd cards were for the Scrap Cap October Cybercrop - halloween colours, use a halloween creature on a card or LO. The first 2 LOs are my entries in week 1 and 2 of Scrap Your Pants Off - ARTY PANTS. The 3rd LO is was for the Scrap Cap CC also - scrapping about your fears.

I am well and truly in the midst of the crazy, maddening time of year for teachers - known as report writing. Even as a PE teacher I have over 400 kids' reports to write - 300 characters - so that is about 12,000 characters to type - aaaah. Have nearly finished the Y1s and so then on to 4, 5 and 6s. Three more weeks to get them done so i am on track. But have a super busy week with 3 nights of meetings early in week. After nest w'end i will have 2 busy weekends too.
Hopefully i will stay on track as it can be really stressful if you get behind and have to sit up till all hours doing them. I dont work particularly well under pressure.

Grace , our new puss, contiunues to settle in well and be a real doll!!! Will post some more photos soon.

Scrap Retreat was soooooo much fun!!!

Over the weekend I had an awesome time at the annual Scrapbook Capital Retreat. Arrived on Friday afternoon and from then until Sunday afternoon the time just flew. I met some great girls - Maria for the first time IRL and Tracy for the 2nd time ( yay that she is coming to Vic to live again in December). The theme was Halloween as the photos show and we had a great dress up night on Saturday. Who is that scary looking witch in the red hat????

Amidst all the chatting, i did mange to - have a wonderful massage - thanks Lorrie, scrap a book about my boy Nitro, run a few scrap games - Scrapaggories, ScrapHead ( like Celeb Head) and a Trivia quiz, eat lots and lots and LOTS of very yummy meals , have a few drinks, dress up as a scary witch, laugh, take part in the raffle and auctions, make a great Xmas card - ta for the class Lyynne-make new friends and generally have a blast!!! Roll on next year I say.
