busy busy busy

Doesn't time fly when you are flat out? I cant believe its been 3 weeks since i last posted.
1st i have to say happy birthday to my Neice and Nephew, Chloe who turned 8 and Damon who turned 9. We had McDonalds for dinner and the had cold rock iceream after that. I hope you both had a great day.

With winter here, the weekends have been spent at home in our PJ's catching up on baking, scrapping and house work and I must say, I have loved it. I have had a bit of a sick kid here but he seems to deal with it pretty well apart from school. Just not himself, very distracted and not settling to well. He had Friday off so I'm hoping the rest from this weekend helps him settle a bit and get back into a routine.

I have been flat out this week organizing final numbers for the retreat, as well as classes, meals and freebies. It has been harder than you can imagine. Not a lot of business are keen to support such a thing but I am hoping in the next few weeks, something sparks and i get a little more support. i would love your ideas on sponser and donations if you have any.

A cybercrop was held this weekend at SC and once again the DT turn out some spectacular challenges and even more impressive examples. Our CC's have been very quite of late and i am hoping entries start rolling in soon.

The August sketch competition is also running. Check our the Competition section for the map and requirements.

Julie is going great guns with the little things challenges. I am hoping to try and catch up this week with her rounds and her layouts have been exceptional. Also a big congrats to our one and only hetty hall for becoming a DT for Kaiser Craft. I have been very lucky to have such a great group of ladies apart of the SC team. Nothing is ever too much and they are always supportive and helpful where ever they can be.

Here is a few things i have done......
