Craft club

Dropped my mini celebrity off at school this morning lol. All the kids rushed over to see Caitlins cast and the staff were all fawning over her. Bless her think shes feeling a bit better about the whole thing now.
Was a very cute moment last night :) Woke up to find Scamp lying alongside Caitlins arm, so he was next to her but not on her cast. He had his head next to Caitlins and she had her hand on his back so she was gently hugging him. Really wanted to get a photo but as soon as I moved Scamp woke up and ruined it lol.
So back to layouts :) While away I joined a facebook page and found lots of challenge blogs I didn't know exsisted! One of which was 'Scrap our stash' here Rather than a sketch or colour challenge they asked us to use an item from our stash beginning with the words that spells Stencil. A bit different and very interesting to do :) So I did this one:

S - Stitches at the bottom.
T - Triangles on the side
E - Edging punches to make the strips at the bottom
N - New stash! The papers were all new as was the chevron punch used.
C - Corner stickers
I - Ink
L - Layers
Next was back to goo old sketches over at Stuck sketches This was the sketch given
and this was mine :) I didnt have 3 photos so used two but I love these photos and the bright colours in the layout :)
Last for today is the Challenge YOUrself challenge :) Might need to get some more photos developed soon as running out of ones with me in them!
This months challenge was to include a bucket list in your layout. Each Summer holidays we make a list of all the things we want to do before the kids go back to school. The last thing on the list last year was a trip to Wicksteed park to go on all the rides. We were lucky we picked the last nice day of the year to go.
Well its now 3pm and I'm running a craft club tonight to help the kids make mothers day cards etc. I'm taking along my magnetic cutting board as I'm hoping that will help Caitlin so sh can colour without holding the paper. Fingers crossed anyway.
