Challenge done!

Well - that was a challenge but do you know what i discovered?  I have way to much "STUFF" lol. - shh don't tell my husband!
And in this page I also used some bits that I brought when Making memories was "the thing to have"  not that they are not now just that it was the "in" thing - probably the only company we know back then.  We all got together and brought a heap of it in from the states as back then there was not many scrap book shops and nothing much online in New Zealand by a long shot!
Here is my ORIGINAL (Beck did you read that?) layout:

 I used some Dusty Attic chipboard clocks, Bo Bunny clock cut out of paper, making memories metal words inked black with staz on, Tim Holtz grungeboard keys inked black, the paper is Bo bunny, the metal clock is from Embellish It, and the ribbon stuff is prima.  All older stuff and all from my stash lol!

To answer Janine's question about what his group was to make - this was purely an excercise but they had chosen glow in the dark tent ropes - I think this would be an awesome idea - save tripping over them going out to the loo in the dark!

And Trace - I think he was so surprised that our friend Dianne that worked in the office at his school would have her camera with her in her handbag lol - Dianne was trying to get it done discretly for him rofl.

Sadly it is my last day on holiday - WHERE did the week go?  I managed to do lots, and lots of nothing!  No many sleep in's as my mother rang most mornings at 8.30am - What the? I guess it is a sleep in because usually I would be starting work - but I wouldn't have gone to bed at 11am - but I love her all the same.
I had Jo, my dad and his two little sisters (camp auntie - finally camp de brief lol) over for lunch on Thursday which was lovely.
And i have kept my dad very busy with little jobs here at the house and SPARKY has been so finally we have power to all of the house!

Tonight Jo and I are taking Abby and two of her friends to the Harry Potter movie (Nigel and Jamie are leaving home because the girls are staying for the night- they will GIGGLE the all night!) and then it will be the weekend - holiday over - really you NEED two weeks lol.

Thanks for stopping bye - have a great weekend!
