Cross Country runner

Nicholas is a real athlete, he loves any sport and last year, was chosen from only a few in his Year 4 to represent Blenheim Primary school in country Cross Country at Garons.  He's a fast runner, but others were much faster... He did however complete the course and I was there cherring him on.  I'm so proud of him. 
I'm entering this layout into the sketch challenge at "Scrapping everyday miracles"


the colour challange at Creating with paper and more as all the colours required are in the background stars paper:


Rochelle's Tic Tac Toe challenge.  I went down the right hand column: enamel dots, journaling strips and stars.  I didn't have any enamel dots so tried to make my own.  They didn't come out too bad and I used them as bullet points for the journaling.


True Love...

I'm going away for the weekend in a few weeks to a Scrap-a-GoGo retreat.  One of their pre-getaway challenges was entitled 50 Shades of Grey plus one - the idea being that the layout could only have shades of grey (black and white included) and ONE other colour.

This photo is of my darling 5 year old (!) and her "boyfriend" Jacob...  They say you never forget your first love!?!?

Birthday girl..

I've decided that I'm going to be 39 forever, so no one is allowed to mention the fact that I just turned 42...

I've been feeling a little low and left out of things lately but I definately felt the love yesterday even by the number of people that kindly wished me a lovely day on my facebook wall.  I was spoilt rotten by everyone, receiving some lovely cards, gifts (a new craft cutter and a Pandora bead), pennies (Joe Browns here I come).

I also get to celebrate all week by eating as I'm lunching or having breakfast with someome special every day this week!  Not sure I shoudl bother weighing in on Friday!

One of my favourite gifts had to be my new Scout swearshirt courtesy of my wonderful friend Sue..
Thank you to everyone that made my day very special.

I am a....

It's not often that I actually dedicate a page to myself.  My focus tends to be my kids, family and friends. I get in a photo every now and again..

This layout however is about me... I'm a very proud Beaver Scout leader and worked hard to achieve my "wood beads" which were awarded to me at County Renewal of Promise in April last year.
Both my boys are in Scouts and my daughter has just been invested too!

I'm entering this layout into Challenge Yourself's Colour challenge with the added criteria of the title begining with "I am"...

and I also used the sketch from Stuck?! Sketches, so I am entering it into their challenge too:
Closing date for both is 28th February - so not long if anyone still wishes to enter.
