Today's the day

It's Cyber Crop mania again on UKS and everything starts at 6.30 this evening. Unfortunately it starts in the chat room which I can't access so I can't start until 7pm when the first class is posted. I'm really looking forward to the first two classes which sound really different.

Tomorrow is Shimelle's class
and thanks to Lemon I have one of her kits which are so cute. Apparently I'm not to say any more as it will spoil the surprise.

As long as I'm not rushed off my feet tomorrow I'll pop on and post any classes I manage to finish.

The rules have changed this CC and we have to upload each day's classes or challenges by midday the next day. I assume this saves the server being over worked on the last day with everyone leaving uploads until the last minute.

Bramhall Park

We recently went to Bramhall park and had a wonderful day and the children were great fun. I was inspired by Kirsty Wiseman's class from the Design Collective and created this

Red Nose Day

As promised here is my finished LO based on Sketch 24 from pencil lines.

Thanks to The Design Collective I've a few ideas milling around in my head and hope to scrap some of the pictures from our trip to the park last weekend.

First classes from The Design Collective

I recieved the first 3 classes and they are brilliant. I am hoping these will really inspire me to get scrapping again. I'm setting myself a challenge to scrap each event I take photos of this month. Instead of just uploading the pics to the computer and adding them to the 'I must scrap these one day' file I'm going to print them and add them to my TDC folder.
Hopefully this will become a habit by the end of the month as I can get used to scrapping regularly and I may even get round to reducing the IMSTOD file!

I managed to pop out at lunch today and get those buttons - so here's hoping I get chance to finish my LO tonight and upload tomorrow?

It's all happening in April!

The Design Collective classes start tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to these and hope they give me loads of inspiration. I discovered pencil lines over the weekend and this really inspired me - I did a LO but need more red buttons before its finished.

Also UKS are telling us to keep the weekend of 27th free! Now I wonder what that could be - CC? Not sure how DH will react.
