An extra long week and weekend!

Well hullo! We had a mixed bank holiday weekend. I worked for much of it, well I had yesterday off which was a surprise really as usually I am at L/C and working hard! I lied in (thank you Kevy) and then just got a few jobs done. Emily went out with Kev in the afternoon (and came back ladden with new books!) and Ben went for a nap, so I crafted :D I finished up these LO's last night...
The first two are lifts, of sorts. From ideas from the SC gallery and my new issue of SB trends!! Whoo hoo. I love this mag!

I just love Studio Calico stamps. They are always such beautiful designs and so usable!

This LO is documenting, the fact that Benji cannot sit still (his arm is totally out of focus!), his love of Roary the racing car and his new shoes/fake crocs...
This one, I stole the title from SB Trends. I totally understood this LO and needed to have one too. I am in denial that Emily will start school in September and I will no longer have two children under 5. My baby is growing up and 'sometimes DENIAL is a good place to be'.

I doodled around the page, I cut up more of my K&Co valentines paper pad and used lots of those MM weenie glittery letters and my last heidi swapp mirror.

This I made while watching the secret millionaire last night. I used my family tree class as a starting point. I wanted the tree to represent family my kiddos won't know.

I used ALOT of green buttons, gems and randomly cut and punched patterned paper pieces from my SC kit. I love their own papers... I love the fact they clearly love cosmo as much as I do and wood grain.
I also got to use a sassafras chipboard deer shape... I think I brought every pack when these came out, some even in duplicates and I have used around 2/3 shapes. I was glad to use this one, rather than having them sitting around in a bag.

I did a whole heap of journo'ing on this LO too. You can't see it. Its a huge piece on the back explaining the title. The fact that my mum, their gran will never know them both. A little sad but good therapy.
I did start a third, but then the clock struck midnight... and I thought it was time for bed. I will be finishing it up this afto, while watching murder, she wrote (i'm soooo glad that the snooker has finished!) and listerning to Emily on the DS; no doubt!
And lastly, even if I do say so myself... I have the best class coming up at the end of June. It's all about journalling. It's an all dayer and you will make a mini and a LO. I am sooooo happy about it all! I have been planning it for a while now. There will be a huge handout to get you going and lots of chatter and natter about writing your life/feelings down. And just telling you how important it is! I am soooo excited about it :D
