A Scrappy Day

Last Friday I finally scrapped!!! Nothing else got done - oh except a yucky trip to the dentist (but we won't talk about that). I was pretty pleased with how much I achieved - some CC layouts and these "just because" layouts. No challenges, no DT work, just because I was scrapping! My first one "Beach Babe" I love!! Not ususally into the monochromatic but after doing the all red for Sept ANATS Twilight challenge, and the all white for Aug Out of the Hat challenge, I thought I would give it another go. Kaleah at the beach on Fathers Day with her new sunnies. Pink and Bling now that's Kaleah!!

A simple layout using Kaisercrafts "Allsorts" range. Kaleah and Beau mastering the art of sharing and taking turns!!

FA Spring Cybercrop

I did these layouts for our Spring CC at Forever Always last weekend. "Little Miss Sunshine" was for the sketch challnge and I have used the very yummy "Eva" range from Basic Grey. The criteria was to creat a flower and I have layered the chipboard embellies on a ribbon flower to mimic the rays from the sun. Kaleah does bring sunshine and laughter to our days.

Colour Challenge - "Just us Girls". This is an old photo of my sisters and I with Kaleah on her Christening Day. It's a very girly layout with the pastel flower cluster.
I did finish 1 more challenge but I haven't photographed it yet. (probably because I an still not sure if I am happy with it or not)

P.....d Off

ggggrrrrrr. I am really angry. When we got our new computer it didn't come with "Word" programs but some other program that the salesman assured me was exactly the same, and that the kids wouldn't have any trouble using it for their school work. Whilst it is not "exactly" the same it does do the same things (just in a different way that I am trying to get my head around). I have been getting frustrated enough with trying to work it out BUT after Regan has spent the past 2 weeks working on an Ocean Animals project and preparing a power point presentation, downloaded to his USB and when he tried to access it in class - NOTHING. His teacher told me she had a couple of the IT teachers trying to make it compatible for the school systems but no. They cannot open the presentation. So it is back to the computer shop for me tomorrow. At least I know that in grade 2 its not going to effect his marks, but poor Regan was so dissappointed that he couldn't do his presentation.

Not very good at this

OK so I am not very good at this blogging stuff. BUT after our holidays I WILL improve!!
(That is my affirmation for today).
So I am apologising for being slack and not responding to your comments earlier. And now I am off to take my first steps on improving and visit some blogs and leave some love!!
