Girlie fun and a little bit of bling...

I thought I'd better share a layout that has been up on the Papermaze blog for a while - Girls was really fun to put together using the Creative Imaginations Narratives line, and the colour scheme was perfect for a girlie photo of me and some friends on a night out a few months ago. I went with the idea of creating a paint 'frame' for my layout and while it was a bit scary to do I think it worked out well in the end - I like the grungy effect.

Work has carried on being busier than I've ever known it - I can't remember working so hard since being an NQT! This week our subject has been under review so books have all had to be marked up to date (fortunately most of mine aren't too bad) and on Monday I got observed (which went well I'm happy to say after all the planning I did for it last Sunday!). I have to have an interview next week to review my responsibility and I sat down last night and spent hours making sure everything is in place. I just hate it if I've forgotton something and feel unprofessional, so better to be prepared.

I have been doing some scrapping too - more work for the Papermaze blog but here is a sneak peek...

Tonight though I'm off to a crop so I actually get the chance to take a few hours out a scrap for myself - bliss!


  1. Great layout! Love how you've raised the strips up - I hardly ever remember to use sticky pads on my layouts.

    I hate work scrutinies - I always worry about what people are going to say about my marking etc. Hope it all goes well for you - it'll soon be half term anyway!

  2. Sounds like you are so busy at the mo. Good luck with the interview.
    Hope you had fun at the crop and love the LO. The painted frame looks fab : )

  3. Love those colours and that layered little flower you've created is just gorgeous.

    Hope you enjoyed your crop and got your chance for a little bit of "you" scrapping time.
