International Fair

Only a few days after arriving in Trinidad I got a call from some moms at my daughter's school, asking me if I wanted to take part in the International Fair they hold every year. There is a booth for each country that wants to participate and, the school being international, the list of countries is LONG! I said OK as long as I didn't need to cook, as I am not ready yet, not until I get all my stuff (which is waiting at the customs office at the moment). So I made letters, signs, helped with the decoration and made souvenirs to give away. Here we are at our booth, waiting for the fair to start:


And here are the souvenirs I made, something very simple as I had very few materials and a short time to work on them. Still, I think they looked nice, especially when grouped, and lots of people came to ask for them. 

I'm also working on decorations for my daughter's Halloween classroom party, plus we are probably moving to our permanent house next Saturday, so no scrapbooking at the moment. Lots of crafting, though, so that keeps me sane.

Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm back to scrapping!

This nomad has finally got her scrapbooking materials (or at least a couple of kits, the mail is slooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow). Haven't found HP photo paper yet, but it is easy to get prints here, so I got 57 photos printed to work with. Here's my first layout in months, based on Let's Scrap sketch for this week:

I tried to mix up embellies from the two packs I've received (a row your boat pack and some JBS papers and embellies), they were very different, but I like the way they contrast.

It really feels good to be scrapbooking again!

Let's Scrap - Sketch 29-9-10

This is the last sketch I made before leaving Tripoli, but could not post it here as it was for this week's sketch at Let's Scrap. I love those pictures; we took them early one morning during a holiday in the Cotswolds Water Park. My daughter went out and came running back saying our "pets" were here asking for breakfast. They were so cute, especially the little ones, we just couldn't resist the temptation to sahre some bread crumbs with them. Here are some close ups of the embellishment clusters, really enjoyed making this LO!

Still waiting for my supplies to get to our new home (the ones I've just bought, the one we are moving from our Tripoli home are still waiting for an authorization to be moved), I can't wait to scrap, I'm going insane without it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
