i'm back...

Hi, resuming somewhat normal transition here. 
I disappeared from blogland for a few weeks there.
I'm blaming the chaos of school holidays, 4 children, work.... 
 Oh and after just one week back at school my 4 lovelies
have had a five day weekend!!! Yesterday and today have been PD days for the teachers and then ANZAC Day tomorrow.
  I'm about ready to scream the place down! 
Bickering, bickering and more bickering. 
Lucky i'm heading off to work tonight and hubby can deal with them tomorrow
while I catch up on sleep.

It's not all bad though, although I haven't posted any layouts I have been scrapping.
Not for challenges just everyday layouts for us.
So thought I would share one today. 

here are some close-ups.
trying to use some of the chipboard stash!

And the end result. 
Andy showing off the $10 dollars the tooth fairy left him. Shame it was the wrong currency. ;)

thanks for popping by- if there's anyone that hasn't given up visiting during my absence that is. 
My apologies again.
Hopefully I'll be back again next week with lots to share, after I've spent the weekend 
at a scrappy retreat. YAY!!!
 Cheers. :)
