Well that's what a busy term will cause!

Hi All,

Term 4 at school is always hectic and this one has been no different, full on to say the least. Mind you in amongst all the busy times I have managed to find my scrapping mojo! Well that's report writing for you, I'll find almost anything to do to put off writing them . . . even housework!

These are the pages that I have created whilst I should have been writing reports. All but one have some mixed media element to them as that's how I roll. Sorry about the amount of photos but i should post more often.

First up Sam and his new second cousin at the speedway.

A photo of me from last year after a trip to the hairdressers.

At work we all wore beanies to raise money for cancer, we were supporting a few of our collegues who are going through difficult times.

A photo of Sam and I out for lunch last year. Ben was there too but he hates me taking photos.

A photo from my trip to the UK in 2013. I've already scrapped it once but gave it to Mum as part of the album I made for her about our mother daughter trip.

This page came about because I saw the chipboard piece from Dusty Attic at the shop and I knew I wanted to make a page about how my life is now since my separation.

I was also lucky to be a student for a change, I took one of Finnabair's classes that she taught at my local scrapbook store just a few weeks ago.

For my November art journal class we made this page:

This is the page I prepared for my December class, I always like to do a Christmas page and I loved the stencil by Kaisercraft so it became the inspiration for the page.

And finally, I had my class make little elves using a photo of themselves for our window display, which my teacher assistant Jodi did a wonderful job with. I can't show the window display but here is my elf.

The other thing that has me happy lately is that I finally have lovely finger nails. I've never been a biter but they just never grew but all of a sudden I noticed that they had a grown a bit over the ends of my fingers so I whisked down to the local nail salon and got SNS polish put on. Well now I have lovely long nails and I feel so girly! I just got them redone with Christmas colours for the girls in my class, here's a snap of them.

Well that's it for now, school holidays are almost here so I aim to post a bit more regularly and not so photo heavy each time, even thinking I might make a video or two!

Take care and happy crafting,

Helen xx
