A plan and the result

Scrap day at Michelle,  I took my handy dandy note pad and pick a layout at random and here is the result.


Nice and simple, just paper and pen.

Christmas gift 1 - Chocolate box

Here is one of the gift boxes that I am making for the boys teachers end of year gifts. 
I will probably put in chocolates or make a lolly wreaths or something similar. 

For this 10 inch square box (2 inches high),  I used chipboard covered with SU Jolly holiday paper.  As the box will most likely be used to carry around a kilo of lollies (the wreath is made used a kilo of lollies),  the bottom has 2 layers of chipboard for support.  The top is embellished with a leaves cut using the big shot and kindy glitter for the bling. I used the new SU 'Take a spin' stamp set for the spinner on top.

fly high, reach for the sky - Interactive page layout

In this layout I used the main paper as the inspiration for the pocket for the photos. 
Each mini kite opens to reveal the photo and text.

Come on Christmas!!

Yes, the Gala is been and gone for this year.  A great event and wonderful fundraising for the school.  In the craft stall we raised more than last year which is wonderful in the current economic climate. 

So what next?  yes Christmas my favourite time of the year.  Over the next few weeks I will be making the Boys school Teachers gifts and gifts for family and friends.  

Plus now I am back to scrapping in my spare time and I have managed to take even more photos.  I also went to Paper Parfait again this year, and again another wonderful event put on by Secret Squirrel and PN Stamp 'N' Scrap.  Here is my take on the challenge at the friday night crop:  
Using Kaiser papers,  I cut out the circles by hand and arranged them in a heart shape in the centre of the page and made a little flip album for my journalling.   


I love this photo (and I am bound to use it again)  It was taken at the Hamilton gardens, There was a little stage in the centre of one of the gardens so I asked the boys to go sit there so I could take a shot and this is what they did,  without any direction from me.  One of the Hmm moments.
