January #yearofphotoschallenge

So I have decided to join in with the Facebook group Year of Photos Challenge
Most years when I have tried to do these I have lost interest by day 5, but this group is laid back and you can upload your pics any day or in any order. 

Here is the list of January 2016

Below are my photos for the challenge

Thanks for looking

January - Pilot

Kraft + January Challenge - Photograph

So I thought what better way to get back into scrapping by having ago at some of the challenges found on Blogs. January has been really busy so I was only able to complete one. The Kraft+ challenge was the one that really stood out for me this month and it was on my MUST DO THIS list!

I hate my hand writing, I think it looks just plain awful, i usually use stickers and alphas to tell the story so this was a real challenge for me.

Most people that know me, know my love for music and lyrics and i thought that I could write lyrics to one of my favorite Ed Sheeran songs - Photograph.
I also love the line about ripped jeans so used on old back pocket off some old jeans as a feature on the layout.

Close ups....

Ill be honest, Scrapbooking has taken a bit of a back seat for the last 6 months, after teaching at the June craft Show in Brisbane I had to focus on my family and home.
Over the Christmas break it has been flat out at my place, Andy went to Jamboree for Scots and had a fantastic time, Im so glad that we could give him the opportunity, and i think he has grown from the experience. 
He starts school tomorrow, he has been appointed one of the class mentors which is fantastic, and shows how far he has come along with his schooling and interaction with others.

Fletch started High school on Wednesday. He is in Year 7 now and had a really good first day.
I was so impressed by the teachers at the school on the first day. they all knew about his disability and needs...including the level coordinator!!!  
Fletch says he wants to be a Vet Nurse, so we are all trying to help him to set goals so he will be able to achieve this!
Fletch has also started a little spot on the Morning Radio show with Ruby on 92.9 Voice FM in Toowoomba called 'The world according to Fletcher'.

Fletch all ready for school

So now that both the boys are back at school, I will be able to get a routine started and include some 'me' time for Scrapbooking!

I have been working on a few crafty projects but they are not finished yet, but i will share them when they are ready!

I am also taking part in the #yearofphotochallenge through a facebook group, I will also be sharing all pics on my blog, but will do them as an end of month bumper post :)

So let 2016 begin... (January was my practice month....)
