Sketch challenge from Chook scraps

So far I have only managed to complete the first of the three sketch challenges from Chookscraps this month, hopefully over the weekend I will get the other two completed...maybe not..

Chook scraps are also having a Cyber Crop this weekend so if you are looking for some inspiration why not join in the fun. The hints have been posted and the challenges will be up later this afternoon.

I am hoping to get some more scrapping done today as well, tonight I am doing an on-line class for the first time so hopefully tomorrow I will be able to show the results of tonights effort.

It could be a busy scrapping weekend for me...

Brandon made the cut...

Tonight after training Brandon recieved his letter from Norwood and much to his relief he has made the cut, he is in the squad of 40. The boys have a break from training now until 19th of January, in the meantime they have been given a daily program which they are expected to follow.

If you read my Christmas letter......

If you are checking out my blog as a result of reading my Christmas letter...thankyou

On the right hand side of the blog you will see a section on other sites I like to visit. It is here you will find links to view Hamish and Brandon in action and just to make it easy they both wear #11 for the Gullies, or instead you can just click on their names and this will take you straight to them.

An update on Craig's knee: His sugery went well yesterday and he even has a small trophy for his trouble. He is slowly moving around, but taking things slowly. As he can't drive for a week I scored the footy training run tonight, luckily for me it was indoors at Pembroke's school gym. Tonight the boys participated in the beep test, agility test and the vertical leap. This time next week we will know if Brandon has made the cut, fingers are crossed.

All three children are now on holidays and are looking forward to the time off school.

December Design Team work

These are the layouts and cards I have created from my Design Team Kit for December.

This photo was taken at the recent October Dance Competitions that the troupe performed in.

Meeting Mary from the design team for the first time, but it felt like we had known her for ages which of course we have through the Heven-Sent forum.

My Christmas cards...I can't make cards without including a photo, the first cards photo is a collage of some of my favourite layouts from recent months.

The tag behind the photo allows for some journalling.
