Weird sort of week!

Yep, loads happening . . . some good, some not so good ! To end the week, I've been asked to go on the schools residential trip to support a boy with behavioural problems and the trips NEXT WEEK! Just wondering when I can fit everything in . . .

* Tomorrow off to Bristol for the University's open day
* Saturday am acting as a chaperone all day
* Sunday same as Saturday
* Mon, Tues, Wed, Thur & Fri away at residential
* Saturday acting as a chaperone again
* Sunday same a s Saturday !!!
* Monday . . back to work

Boy, oh boy am I looking forward to the summer holidays as I will need them to catch up with myself! Now onto this weeks theme at Fab'n'Funky Challenges which is "Sew and Sew" . You can use faux or real stitching or alternatively, sew something onto your project.

I went for faux stitching and then I have sewn the buttons onto my flowers. All the papers and elements are from the "All around and everywhere" CD from Polka Doodles. I made the card shape by drawing around a dinner plate and then punching out a whole load of circles to make my scallops.

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

Simon Says - theme is "friends"
C.R.A.F.T - colour combo this week of black, lime green & lilac

I hope to have a quick catch up on Saturday and will visit as many peeps as possible but please forgive me if I don't leave you a comment . . . not sure I could fit it all in!
