Where has time gone?

I can't believe that it will be school half term holiday next week. Have the children really been back at school that long? Lara came home the other day with a laminated picture of an apple on which was printed 'This apple award is awarded to Lara for Team Work'. Each month the school teaches the children about a certain value and children who demonstrate that value get given an apple award in assembly. Lara and one of her class mates had worked so hard together to tidy up a mess which they hadn't themselves created that they had been presented with apple awards - the first children in the reception class to get one. How proud am I?

Not a lot else has been happening here. So far I've not taken part in much of the UKScrappers cyber crop. The cyber crop this time has been spread over three weekends with this coming weekend being the last. There have been loads of inspiring classes but I've only managed two - both of them designed by my Mojo Holder team mates - Emma and Angie.

I really loved doing Emma's class which used ribbon. I've got so much ribbon but can never think of interesting ways to use it (there are only so many bows you can tie - right?) and this class gave me the opportunity to dig into the mountain and actually use some of it. This was my LO:

Angie's class let me use up loads, and loads, and loads .......... and loads of buttons. I bought a box of Papermania buttons a couple of years ago and have been gradually using them but this LO really ate into them. But, as I love using buttons I didn't mind at all. This was my LO:

It was also Mojo Challenge night on Friday. We lifted a LO by Emine Pala - not a scrapper I had come across before but one whose work is fabulous. She's one heck of a great scrapper. This was Emine's LO:

and this, was mine using scrummy Scenic Route:

Think that's it - bye bye from Blog Land - come back soon.
