Back to School is Cool!

The boys are back to school today. It is going to be odd for them not to be here all day. We moved into the new house on breakup day, so I actually haven't spent any time here without the noise & activity of Caide & Bryce around! I am sure I will get used it quite quickly though. LOL!

Had a nice weekend. Just went too quickly as it usually does. Saturday morning was spent doing chores, and helping Ray to put up burglar bars in the kitchen, and then in the afternoon the boys played in a mini kids golf tournament, so we walked around the course with them. It was really nice to get out into the crisp winter air, Jamie loved being pushed around in his pram.

Yesterday, was also chores in the morning. Finally finished putting up shelves in the dining room and Jamie's room, also did loads of washing!! Then we had lunch, went for a walk, and I settled down to finally start scrapping Jamie's birthday pics. Not finished yet, but at least I have made a start. Since I have started cardmaking, my scrapbooking has fallen by the wayside, I need to try and balance the two better! I also finished making 16 inchies for our RSA group swap. It is the first swap I am taking part in, so really excited about it. I have also signed up for a recipe swap, which is going to be a bit more difficult I think, but I am up for the challenge!!

I am not too sure about the card I am posting today, I think it's the colours. On one of the blogs, I saw a challenge to try and put pink & orange together. It turned out very brightly!! The image is really cute, just don't think this card does it justice. It's (just for a change!!) a Best Rubber Stamps, stamp, no. 803L.

Please let me know what you think?!?

Here is a photo I took of Jamie recently. Isn't he just the cutest thing. Love his big teeth, they make his little face look too adorable!

Hope the week ahead is a good one for all of you out there.

Love Rene'

Hey Ne'
Just a quickie comment... I like the card, but I would have chosen a slightly different hue and saturation for the orange. Will email you the idea that I had - just a really crude 2 minute job that I did.
Let me know what you think?
Love you!
