I'm all official!

So after nearly 5 years of being a Beaver Scouts leader I now consider it all official..
Not only do I now have keys to our venue, but I have my own name badge too!!

Least we Forget

So last week it was Remembrance Sunday and Alexander, Cassandra and I joined the rest of our Scouting family at the service at St Peter's.  Mum came along too.

I was so proud, that just like her brother before her, Cassandra got to carry the flag!
Part of the service was to make a cross with some lolly sticks and string.  Alex did brilliantly, helping out others using his recent pioneering skills that came in vary handy!
Whilst not the best service I've ever been too, I was proud too as I got to be part of the raising and lowering of the flags.  Last Post gets me everytime though..

CHNC (Crafty Hazelnuts)!

Before I started scrapbooking, I started out making cards and every now and again have a dabble..

The Scraproom Group on Facebook

I'm really getting back to my scrappin' at the mo and  I'm really pleased with this layout that I did for the Throwback Thursday challenge at the Scraproom Group on Facebook.


Obviously you had to use the sketch and also one item that's been in your stash for over a year.. I have lots!

What I eventually used was the Canvascorp pad "Sand and Sea" which I've had for about 18 months and never got round to utilising.

Here's the link!

Having tea and cake!

Most people know that for the last two years I've been volunteering at my local Food Bank.  I enjoy the fact that I can help others in need and enjoy spending time with my fellow volunteers.

On Sunday a few of us were chosen to represent Trussel Trust and the Food Bank by celebrating 3 years of being open in Southend.  We got to attend at Porters House and have tea and cake with the Mayor!

I then managed to get everyone from our Distribution centre together for a photo.

It's great to be appreciated.

Good times.
