Where to begin?

We've had many challenges beginning Prep for Rainer. I won't re-hash the "week that was..." here. I've done so with my family and friends and just on one forum.

Now, we are happily settled and despite my disappointment and frustration with the school, I'm not changing his routine and they will just need to play "catch up".

Thank you to my support network! I truly cannot thank you enough for your encouragement and understanding.

And I've been creating.

Man, it feels soooo good!!!

Bon's Cybercrop that finished Tuesday.
Peta's Blind Scrapping Challenge

Tam's Sketch Challenge

and a WINNER....
Bon's Colour Challenge

PINK!!!! I know! And I can only reveal here how this layout took me only ONE HOUR to put together. Mind you, it'd been brewing for a week and then it just spewed forth (as is my way LOL)

Thank you ladies, for another wonderfully creative, supportive and challenging week.

Remember this book?

I've also heard a number of other scrappers rave about it and it truly is a wonderful collection of ideas. Available in Australia only through (as far as I know).

I made this for the AEIOU staff.

I loved putting this together and it was easy and so much fun!! Looking forward to starting many more of her projects soon! Photo is by the wonderfully creative Rachel Richter.

Tam's Online Class at Bon's a couple of weeks ago (?)
