As far as Easter goes, the Easter bunny visited Phoebe's school on Thursday and left huge footprints through her classroom and eggs in her draw - how cute is that? I was amazed when I arrived at school to pick her up and discovered what had happened - no wonder school is one big field day to her! I'm planning an egg hunt tomorrow - haven't done one before. I'm going to follow the kids around with the camera - a scrapbook moment of course! I've even thought of what the kids will wear so the photos are just right - crazy Mama, I know. I hope I can pull it off.
I hope I have some photos to share soon - I wish I could fit in an Easter layout before the retreat..we'll see.

I'm happy with today's effort although I must admit it took me all day to get into the studio then it took about 30 minutes to complete the layout, I have no problem with that.
Bye for today!

I'm working on a layout in my head so hopefully will get time to create today as well as sorting more stock and class kits.

No time to scrap today. I had to attend a Better Farm Integrated Quality course (for the farm) and it felt like being in school again - that was so long ago for me! It has to be done though, after all the farm is our livelihood - unlike scrapbooking where I spend more than I make!

Also, I've been scrapping a little. I'm using Alli's formula for quick and easy pages to do a whole album on our recent family holiday. Already I've done 4 double layouts and only stopped because I ran out of photo paper. Don't underestimate this class - its going to be great, and revolutionary I think. As much as I love the craft and enjoy spending hours pouring over a page picking, choosing, arranging, rearranging and so on, I have to admit that there are so many events I haven't scrapped because they've seemed too big or too hard. This simple formula makes it so easy and the end results are rewarding because you have so much done in so little time. The local girls who scrap here on Tuesdays were saying how you can use one layout sketch to do so many layouts and they all look different but are so easy. That's my type of scrapping these days. I cant show what I've done yet - don't want to give too much away - but I will show you the finished project in time.
New stock has already started arriving for the retreat and it's to die for. I'll take some photos when I get it unpacked. Gee, I think I'll be permanently broke but what the heck?!
Bye for now. P.S. If your coming to the retreat and haven't received your requirements, let me know and I'll forward them to you.
