Another new month...

...and 2010 seems to be flying by already. I spent today in my new school, meeting the class i will be working with after Easter, and finding out what i need to do with the class teacher. To be honest i feel as if i may have bitten off more than i can chew with this Primary business, and OFSTED is imminent (very bad timing on my part) but then i find myself thinking if my OH can do it, then so can I!!!

I know it will be fine once i get started, but until then i just have to fret about the whole thing, and keep crafting to keep my mind off it all!

Today's page is one I made for a challenge on the Do Crafts site, using a sketch. I chose this picture of Kevin taken last week with a lovely cake he baked for me. The stash is sooooooo old i can't even remember buying it but it needed using so here it is on a LO (K&Co Neopolitan). As he is wearing a pink shirt, and the cake is pink i have used this girly colour on the page, but grunged it up a bit to try and make it more masculine. The title is stamped using Autumn Leaves alphabet and Studio g (the smaller letters.) As ever the Martha Stewart punches have an outing, I added Beadazzles to the stamped heart (Unity) and I added an eyelet by WRMK.

The blingy swirls i made myself, as i love them and they are a little pricey I used a set of Autumn Leaves swirl stamps, stamped in a light pink ink, added dots of glue using a glue pen, and then added the gems (by Anitas... very low price for a mass of them in 2 sizes) Am quite pleased how these turned out... crafting on a budget makes the LOs that bit more personal.

Great LO Ann!
I'm sure you'll be fine once you start after Easter.

Fabulous layout - and I'm so into using "older" stash at the moment. I have faith in you, don't worry, give yourself time, you'll be fine x
