Winter Brrrrrrr

Winter is well and truly with us in Melbourne that is for sure!!!
Good scrapping and cardmaking weather i say!!!
Just under a month since my last post so I am improving ... and there was room for improvement!!!
What has happened in the month since the last post .. not a lot really
Busy at school/work .. my school team won the District Cross Country. Here are a couple of photos - after the win and of our shield

Year 6 round robin days have also been played - teams play - soccer, football, tee ball, tag rugby and netball against 5 other local schools. As the District Secretary
I organise those days - booking venues and refs etc.
Report writing has also been on the agenda - oh joy
Now I am proof reading other teacher's reports before the final print - more fun

Thank goodness for scrapping, it helps keep me sane!!
A friend from my early crafting days - she used to run a small home based stamping/craft business- think i was her best customer !!!- took over a fairly established Scrap business near me and I did some demos for her on her opening day and some card samples. Hope to take some classes for her too.

I am the 'Calendar girl' over at Scrap Book Capital for June and have set the sketch and will be setting a few challenges for the cybercrop this month.
I miss my time at scrapcap as a design team member so it will be great to set some card and scrap challenges.

I was very lucky ( by 1 solitary point!!!)to win the Postcards comp at Scrap Boutique
It was an awesome competition and i loved all the challenges. We visited a different destination over 6 weeks and had to draw our inspiration form the postcard we were 'sent' each week. It really was such a different competition to any I have been involved in before - a big challenge too!! Some of my LOs for the comp are below.
These 4 LOs were inspired by Postcards from Italy, France, India and Japan. we also visited USA and Greenland - might include those LOs next time

Think that is enough from me for now

keep warm - Melbourne girls!!!
