I'm back.........

Well...boy has it been a while.....its been a hectic 6 months with hospital trips for bursting ulcers, an operation and work, work, work in between. But have to say have started summer off with a bang and am looking tanned and lighter with a South Pacific Cruise and lots of swimming at the local pool under my belt.

The cruise was awesome! 12 days sailing around the islands of Vanuatu and New Caledonia. Snorkelling, hiking, swimming and lots of walks along the beach. Sea days were great as well with soooo much to do on the 'Radiance of the Seas' and scrapbooking with teacher, Melissa Kennedy from KaiserCraft. We made a travel journal (see below) and scrapped beach play, Christmas and some romantic pages too - not sure if I will blog these as we got to play with Pre-CHA release papers.... HOW EXCITING!!!!







When I got home it was straight back to work to get things ready for the new school year and I now have the first week of school done! So....time to take my mind off of work and what better way than with some craft.

So far since I have been home I have constructed a Dusty Attic 16 draw storage and decorated it - now the home of all my jewellery, finished off my travel album and made 7 cards. Have 9 LOs that need to be finished off so I am going to work on those this weekend and only have 1/2 a day at work - all work and no play etc etc....and will make a few baby cards and girl b'day cards for Scrappin Outback to sell as well.

Be My Valentine
