only a week to go...

I am getting so excited,this time next week I will be at the Scrapagogo gogo getaway.
This is the retreat Scrapagogo runs twice a year.
Although I am on there Design Team I actually WON my place as a delegate at this retreat in a raffle they ran at their last retreat in june !!
I am nearly organised which is a good thing as the children are now off school for half term.
In the build up to the retreat there has been a number of challenges on the Scrapagogo Club House ,to get us in the mood.
The first was to scrap something Precious.

Using an Gogo kit (?nov 07 !!) i scrapped how my feelings to "special" jewellery has changed after we were burgled years ago and now i wear what i love everyday.

The second was a team challenge,to scrap a Lo using a film or song title.

Harriet sings this song alot and seemed an obvious choice for this fab photo taken by Cheryl Johnson at the june gogo getaway.

under construction...

For my birthday Paul decided it was about time my craft room was decorated.
To be honest it was a lovely thought but i was dreading it,some stuff had been in there since we moved in 4 years ago.
I bit the bullet and emptyed the room-those boxes now seem to fill 2 other rooms !!and thats with me throwing loads out !
So here it is waiting to be skimmed.
Will keep you up to date on it's progress and for now my laptops on the kitchen table.

Matthew is 12

I find it hard to believe that Matthew is now 12, where has that time gone ?
To celebrate he went to Alton Towers with 4 school friends for the day
and managed to do all the scary rides.
