Retreat LOs

Friday, November 21, 2008

Ok ok so i didn't come back yesterday. I'm sorry Beth!! But I'm here now.

Just wanting to share the LOs I did on the retreat

This is the LO I did in Bev's Class. We made our own backgrounds using Glimmer mist and stamps. Lots of fun and mess!

This one is about Joel and his love of books already. Love how this turned out

Just a fun little LO about Joel and this cute little thing he does when we say OH NO!!

Last one was a challenge LO. Had to only use papers, embellishments etc.. that were in my goodie bag from the retreat. I thought it turned out alright!

So there we go. It's going to be wet and windy here in Melbourne over the weekend so I am hoping to get more scrapping done then. Am in the process of making a Christmas/December album up to record all the fun and festivities of the season.

Anyway, till next time

Too much to say, not enough time!

I've been meaning to get on here and post for over a week now but haven't had much time and then when I did Blogger was being a real poo but here I am! So much to say and share. Since my last post, life has been crazy but good. Joel has been giving us lovely wakeful time during the night for the last 2-3 weeks. Most nights (bar maybe 3 in that time) he's been up from around 12-2 (the worst night was 12-5!!!!). Suffice to say, Andrew and I are stuffed!! But we still love him. We've pretty much been going to bed when Joel does just to make up some sleep. We have discovered Joel now has 4 molars which we think is the reason for the wakefulness. We are hoping it finishes soon!!
Andrew is up to his eyeballs in reports and trying to do them tired is not fun for him. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel and they should be done by the middle of next week.
The most exciting thing that happened for me was the Scrap of Faith Retreat. I flew up to Brisbane on Friday 7th for the retreat and it was so much fun. I've been chatting to these girls for a couple of years now on the SOF forum and it was so good to meet a lot of them in person. Words cannot describe how it was to spend a weekend with these awesome awesome women of God. And shock horror, I actually got some scrapping done on the weekend as well (amongst all the chatting!!) I so hope I can get to the next one - whenever that will be. I'm better start saving now.
Just wanted to share some pics of the weekend. I will load some pics of the LOs I did on the weekend tomorrow. Too many pics to share today!!
