Well, J. went off to Normandy this morning. We walked round to school, towing those two bags behind us (and no-one complained that he had 2 bags, rather than one - no problems at all!). We met up in the hall and the children went to their Groups that they had been given last term. Everyone was excited and it was really rather fun. Then the coaches arrived and we parents spent a very chilly half-hour standing outside, watching our kids loading their bags, getting on the coaches and messing around, waiting to go. Just after 9am, off they all went, with lots of mums and dads to wave them off!
So it's been a quiet day. For the first time in ages, I have had an entire weekend day all to myself... very strange. I have been busy - after all, what does a Scrapper do when she (or he!) has a whole day free?
Half an hour of faffing around later... lo! A lovely sheet of Chatterbox paper (double sided - this is the plain side)... It was just the right colour and had just a little bit of texture in it, to set of the design as I wanted.
I was a bit surprised that this deep turquoise worked so well, as I had tried every shade of brown, moss, red, charcoal, black, white, cream, sand and grey... then I started with the blues and voila!
I trimmed off a quarter inch and matted it onto kraft cardstock, partly because it was paper, not cardstock, but also to make it work with the other elements.
Overall, I'm pretty pleased with this; but it took me so long to do! I must get speedier at my scrapping! This is the fallout from being a perfectionist - it has to be "just right", or I won't do it!

And while I was working away, it was lunch time. I went in the cupboard to look for some tuna, but found these:-
I don't remember the last time I ate Beans on Toast! It was super-yummy!
Off to do some more scrapping - I still have 6 photos left!
