I'm Baaa-ack!!

You may have noticed that I have been waaaaay out of the crafting picture of late....and well that's because I have been! Inconveniently, LIFE took over and I was just too busy to attempt anything. I was helping my daughter get through exams, assignments and a myriad of activities. Then it was time for her to graduate and there was 101 awards nights, speech nights, church services, valedictory service and valedictory dinner. While this was going on I had my sister and her family stay with me while I put on my grandparents combined 90th birthday party! Thankfully my daughter has graduated, she's returned from schoolies at Great Keppel Island, my relatives are back in Sydney and I can finally get down to crafting!!!
This post is of my only attempt to craft, and that was out of necessity. My daughter volunteered me to make giant cards for all five year 12 music teachers. I made these all in one night and they are an A4 sheet of card stock folded in half...and because all the year 12's had to write in them I had to add an insert in the middle of each card.
I think I did pretty well under pressure! Anyway, I have since got back into full swing and have lots more photos to show you...but I will spread out my posts over the next week.

Good to be back!!!

I have to admit to being slightly confused whilst reading your post - Adele has a daughter graduating, no way, they're too young...took me a moment to focus on Lisa at the bottom lol

Lovely to see what you've been up to - you did well under pressure.
