These Boots Are Made For Walking....... (or rather mucking out giraffes)

~Hiya all,
~It's been a fairly quiet few days since I last blogged but I have got a few pics :D.

~Firstly on Thursday I had an appointment, that I was a little worried about but it ended up going well, which is fab. I made plans to go to this course in September.........

~It's called Step In, and it's only 9 hours per week over 3 mornings. It's a good way to get back into the swing of things if you've been out of work, or like me have a long term illness. I will be doing all sorts of crafts, card making, digital photography and creative writing among other things so I'm quite excited. I'll meet with the woman running it in a few weeks times and we'll discuss things so i'll know more then.

~Today, Jay and I went into town to go birthday present shopping - it's Ben and Jake's 1st birthday tomorrow but we also went to buy these...........

~Which I need for my giraffe experience, which i CANNOT wait for. 11 days today and counting!!! Aren't they cute? We went to 7 shops to find wellies, and it was virtually impossible but I got these from Jeans Scene.

~In the last few days I've also been taking part in Scrap Around The Clock's Cybercrop, which has the theme of going back in time (my challenges go up in a few days). So I did Mel's challenge........
~, which was to scrap a photo from the 70's, so I scrapped this one of Jay as a baby, wasn't she cute??
~And I did this challenge by Amanda........
~, which was to scrap using a vintage embellishment. I used old coins, which I used as flower centres. For the letters I painted them cream, with gold over the top, I then sanded the letters down before painting a thin layer of sepia accents over the top. This is my first ever vintage layout and I am actually really happy with how it's turned out!!!! Anyway go check out the cybercrop, it's great fun!!! Scrap Around The Clock's forum has now changed over to a Ning site, so please click on the link and join us for some fun :D :D
~That's all from me for now, thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment.
