Year 1 Scrapbook Pages

A little while ago I put a wish on UK Scrappers for any old stash that the members had finished with as I take my Son's art class on a Thursday morning. I was totally overwhelmed by the kindess from so many ladies who sent me the most amazing papers, cardstock and embellishments for my much in fact that what was to be a project for 1 class ended up being for both year 1 classes! And what's more, Mrs Fuller is going to repeat it with her next class in the new school year :)

The children all had their photo taken and printed in school, then they got to choose a backing paper, a mount for the photo, some ribbon, and loads of embellishments all to tell the story about themselves. I think they all did a superb job, and you never know, a few may even take up our hobby!!!
Here are just a small selection of layouts the children did of themselves, which were then turned into calendars for their parents.

I've been looking through my photos to find the couple of layouts I created for my LSS as they wanted to do 2 Christmas kits, but I must have forgotten to take photos :( They were created with the beautiful SEI Christmas papers and lots of embellies. I hope that the girls at the crop enjoyed them.
This layout was created using Prima papers, stamps and chipboard swirls covered with a large helping of distress paint :) Very dimensional and textural. The large flower was cut from the patterned papers, inked, curled and layered. I think it works.

Flights are booked!

Yes, finally, flights are booked for the 7th January. One way tickets for all of us, and Mark will have to come back in Feb to (hopefully) finalise the house and ship his tools out! Can you believe that we have over a container's worth of stuff?! Mark would tell you that most of it will be my art and scrapping supplies lol and between you and me he's not wrong! (Well he's got his tools and I've got mine!)

The kids are really excited now as they know that it is finally happening and are counting down the last couple of weeks of school.
So it's full steam ahead here with packing and clearing...wish me luck.
