“Back 2 School & a Layout!”

I have had a busy day today with Jayden my 15 year old!  He is ready to go back to school next yr and he will be in Yr 10. I have been home schooling him since May 2010, and he has been handling it really well!

With school holidays only 2 days away we wanted to get it finalized so he didn’t miss out on any subjects! We spoke to the Yr 10 Co-ordinator over at the College today and he has picked his subjects and I am enrolling him again tomorrow!

He is very excited and look forward to seeing his friends and getting back to a normal school life next yr!! He will be doing 4 compulsory subjects, 6 electives and an extra VET (Victorian Education & Training) subject in Automotive which will give him a certificate at the end of Yr 11. I am very proud of him and I know he is ready to go back to school in 2013!!

I also wanted today to get Gina’s challenge done over at The Boxx and was trying to find a couple of pics that would suit her sketch! I found these two of a camping trip from a few years a go!

I don’t mind camping but it is a bit rough with no ladies amenities! Yes you can laugh but not funny I can tell you! Never will I be going there again un-prepared!!

                             This is Gina’s 12×12 sketch for us to use!

(Click on image for a better view! 🙂 )

And this is my 8.5x 11 version of her sketch! I used some retired SU papers, my new markers with my spritzing tool to create my misted background,new doily dies, Language of Friendship stamp set and match punch.

“Catching Up!”

There doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day lately even with daylight savings! lol!! I am so glad it is school holidays at the end of this week here in Victoria and a bit of a break for JJ and me!

Cody has settled into his job and getting his first pay today was massive! Not having money for so long he doesn’t take it for granted!!  He is working late shift but doesn’t mind and he gets on so well with everyone!! We still need to get a few driving hours up but will get there!!

I haven’t scraped for about 3 weeks! I know it is sad!! I just can’t seem to juggle everything atm! Sort of lost the Mojo I think! 😦  Mum is more demanding and my time is not my own! I am really enjoying my Stampin Up workshops and it gives me something else to think about and gets me out of the house! lol!!!

I have been paying off a new dining suite and I had it delivered today! it is a lovely 5 piece in dark wood and I love it that it is mine and have no debt!! I have moved my scrap space back out to the kitchen and I have the suite in the lounge room!! Better than seeing my mess everywhere! lol!!

I even bought a nice new mat too!!  Just waiting for Cody to come home and the boys will gather to play computer games together! lol!!

I hope to get some Water Coloring done some time this week, as I need to brush up on my technique for a workshop I have in April!! We have our CC at Challenge Heaven this week which will be fun also!!

I am off to the International Flower and Garden Show in Melbourne on Saturday with my friend Pam and am look forward to it! The weather is supposed to be great!!

Hope you have a great week!! TFL 🙂 Kerri x
