Far Too Long :0)

It has been far too long between posts! There has been so much happening here.....renovations, a school fundraiser, report writing and many other things have been consuming our everyday. As I speak my hubby is out in the back room putting on the last coat of paint on the renovations. Well, fingers crossed it is the seems to have been going on forever!!!!!!

Well, here I am and I have a few little bits and pieces to share with you can imagine the opportunity of sitting and scrapping has been very minimal.
Here is another one for Brayden's 'School' album. I used one of the Get Picky sketches (obviously I am too late to enter the challenge - especially after the fact that it has been at least 2 months since they posted the sketch).
These were some photos taken of Brayden on his first day of Prep last year! When I created these layouts I sanded the cardstock and sprayed them with Glimmer Mist. It is hard to see on the photo BUT looks great in "real life."

And some close ups!

Scrapbookit's May Challenge is still open for you to enter. Pop on over to Scrapbookit's Blog or the Online Shop to check out the challenge. Better still why not pop in and see Jo at the shop.

Thanks for looking!
