Am officially stress free......

Well at least for a little while! On the 8th of July I went in for an interview for a new position that is opening up at our school, and came out feeling not so good about my chances.....then on Monday morning I got a phone call from the board to tell me that I am to present myself at the school on September 1st to start my new job!!!! I was totally shocked! I cried and jumped around the living room living little school girl who just found out a boy liked her! I tell you this is amazing! I no longer have to worry about what I am going to be doing the following week, this is permanent and full time!!!

OK and now that I have been stress free for a week, I have been doing some scrappy stuff! Here are a few challenges that I have entered!
I made this easel card for Sweet Shop's (http://sweetstopsketches.blogspot.com/) challenge of a sketch and Christmas in July. As well as for the challenge over at Bah-Humbug (http://bah-humbug-christmas.blogspot.com/). They wanted to see a shaped card. This was my first time making a round easel card. It was quite easy, I just might have to make some more of them in the future!

This cute little card was made for Saturday Sketchers (http://sketchsaturday.blogspot.com/) I loved working with this sketch, I will definitlely be using this one again! I also combined it with the colour challenge over at JUGS (http://justusgirlschallenge.blogspot.com/) and the anything goes theme over at Simon Says (http://simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.com/)

Oh! I almost forgot! My poor little baby took a nasty flip on her bike last week. She hit a very loose gravel trail, and was going a little too fast and lost control of her bike. She flew right over the handle bars and skidded face first into the gravel path. She has some nasty cuts on her face, arm and leg. (yes only on the right side of her body).

But I am very happy to say that she is healing up super quick. All the scabs on her face are already gone and all she has to show for her tumble is some pretty pink skin. I think all her swimming in the pool has helped to heal up faster.


  1. Oh wow these are absolutely gorgeous, sooooo cute.
    Aww your poor baby girl, tell her she is still beautiful even with her war wounds :)
