holidays are over

So the holidays are over for this little duck and I am back at work... looking forward to another glorious year helping all those little kidlets navigate life and emotions. My two are all grown up and out in the big world ... Ryan is almost a third year apprentice and Emily has just enrolled in Certificate III in Office Admin... this year will be big.... The husband and I are looking at a little long service leave this year too ... not sure when or where but it is all in our big plan for the year.

We like to write up an action plan every year... what we would like to do or achieve and then tick it off as we go along... so far things are looking bright ... inside the house has been painted, we did a little culling of clutter (with a lot more to go), new cars, new workloads, children happy with their respective partners... exercise program is on pointe...

I was just talking with a friend and it came to me ... my word... a lot of people I know find a word to focus and bring on the new year ... mine is CONSISTENT...

So to continue with my consistent theme ... I still have my arty supplies dusted off and created some layouts for January comps over at The Scrap Suite Scrap the Boys and Scrap the Girls blogs...

Scrap the Girls -- Shine Bright ...
 they had a prompt of a blue mood board & I have used the quote that was on the board too.

Scrap the Boys - Heartbreaker... 
I loved this little theme of using flowers on a boy layout

  I chose Challenge 1 from the December challenges by Jasmine


Until next time have a fabulous week.
