All is well

Yay, she is home, my girl is home. She left for camp on Wednesday morning and for the first time no-one was there to say goodbye to her. I had to work and Ash had a meeting so Ash dropped her to school and left her there to board the bus all on her own. I felt like such a bad mother. Well guess what - she coped, and had an absolutely fabulous time. They went to Mapleton to the same camp I went to in Grade 11 and would you believe it, she was even in the same room as I was. The went abseiling, canoeing, orienteering, all the things you would expect them to do. The food was so-so. Ok one day, not so ok the next. But she is home now, all safe and sound and all the washing is done - PHEW!!!!!!

I scrapped this weekend, my third challenge for the DT tryout for Scrapability Sketches. We had to do a LO on a shaped base, with stitching, buttons, material and lace with mixed alphas. This screamed vintage to me so I scrapped a photo of my mum at her Deb Ball. She was 18 in this photo and made her own dress. It was great to scrap one of the few photos I have of her.

I am really enjoying the comp, getting some scrapping done which is a bonus. I'm not sure how I'll go but hey you've got to be in it to win it. I would love to score a DT spot with these guys, it is a pretty awesome site.

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend. Will be back to update on our hole in the ground - LOL!!!!

PS. Forgot to mention that cute little heart pin is from My Little Bit of Whimsy. They have the cutest stuff.
