The alarm goes off at 8am - which is far too early given the time I went to bed last night but unfortunately I don't have the option of a lie in as Kenneth (and Jake) have a football match this morning and have to meet at the Academy at 9am - amazingly given the time they went to sleep the boys are both up, and are on the PC on Runescape - I soon put a stop to that. Don't they know there is a cybercrop on this weekend.

Robert takes the boys down to Kilwinning for their match which they win 6-3. Apparently they play really well as a team and as a win bonus they get a burger each :)

I attempt my first beaded bracelet as part of the cyber crop and thanks to Ally's easy peasy to understand instructions I am soon the proud owner of one red and gold bracelet - Kirsten helps me to make this by sorting the beads and threading a few. I am really pleased with the end result

I manage to finish off my Lippy Chick style book

...and get a few more classes done.

I like how the Mini minnie LO turned out - I used some of Kirsten's glitter glue to make the title and apart from it taking ages to dry I think it worked well.

I did Lousette's class next and although I love the photos at an angle I am not particularly happy with the end result. I made myself use the stickers I bought to match the Karen Foster patterned paper - why oh why!! Note to NOT buy more stickers!!!

Shimelle's class was next - now this one I really liked. I was really pleased with the end result, which I think looks better in real life than in the photo - for a start the background is actually white!!! I made the Coca-Cola background paper myself using a text box and Loki-Cola font in word. The flag was one the kids picked up while we were on holiday and I added a Coca-Cola sticker that I had picked up in Michaels.

Finally I had a go at Gill's class which was a mini-album type thing but I decided to make it as a Christams card instead - well it was a good excuse to try out my new Autumn leaves stamps
