Anyway when the pressure was on I got going and actually ended up loving doing it so I can safely say this one really took me out of my comfort zone but I am pleased I did it
The top two little boxes are presents for the ladies in the admin office - one is just a couple of lip glosses and the other is a strawberry candle. The two books are for teaching assistants - the books are just lined books so they write all their little notes inside. Mrs Picketts one has a piece of really touchy feely material on - kind of a ribbed chenille
the two candles I bought plain at Ikea and have just prettied them up - there is a lovely little girl in my daughters class who is deaf - she has two ladies who work with her on a one to one basis - one works two days and the other three days (I think) but they also help out in class and Em loves them both - really nice ladies
The next two are exploding boxes for the two lovely ladies themselves - the teachers - Mrs Metheringham and Miss Wells. Will be sorry to move on from their classes - they are both lovely ladies
and finally here are the atc's that I madeIt is now the school holidays and I doubt I will get much scrapping done during the week as I am going to be working in the evenings mainly - humph!!

I said to dh when he went shopping - I want a colour - something funky - oh my word - I only left it on for 15 mins instead of 20 - if I had left it on for the full time - I think my hair would be actually glowing - lol - actually I really like it - its totally different = it looks really purple when the sun shines on it - ha ha - oh well

I have not had a lot of time the last two weeks for crafting as we have been on holiday to Centre Parks in the Lakes - fantastic time and then since being back have been catching up at work and home and dealing with a swine flu scare at the children's school - one of the teachers is off with it - poor woman.
Anyway I have given my bootie a shake and got crafting this weekend and have done my circle journal ready to post on Monday for Quirky Crafts forum. I really hope other peeps think it is ok too - took me quite a while and quite a bit of playing - have tried different distressing techniques with it - and am now ready to pop it in an envelope - already excited at the prospect of getting it back all filled in - seems ages away but I bet it goes fast
Anyway let me go and find a couple of piccies from our hols, in case Grandma and Grandad log on to have a peek at our delightful duo
This is where we went
Here they are after winning the sports challenge - well done guys
really proud of you - as alwaysThe boys went creep crawly spotting with the forrest ranger Dan spotted the first toad of the season - the Ranger was really impressed with him and on his return he brough me a stem of beautiful wild flowers that he had found - Just for Mummy - my heart melted
Whilst the boys were having male time Em and I went to ....
have our hair braided
and our nails painted
Think the creepy crawlies and the walk tired Daddy out - he had a head massage when he got back - here he is look
All for now
despite asking our young man time and time again if all of his homework was done and despite being told absolutely yes - he has now found some at bedtime before he starts back at school tomorrow - guess who is banned from playstation for 1 week - aagh boys - will be boys!! _ back later with more piccies
