After a fairly easy first week back at work, it was really in at the deep end. This week there were no days off and a full compliment of kids. Am still trying to sort through the stuff that the last teacher had, into a system that I can work.

On top of all that have been up to the eyes with the preparations for the Cally Society's Burns Night on next Friday. This week has included a committee meeting and a tasting of the menu and wines, as well as getting the placecards, menus and new Cally Songbook done. This part of the preparations are well under way, with the menus all printed and just have to be put together and the songbook is in the process of being printed off. The some of the placecards are printed, but can't them finished until all the names are in, so can see it ending up being a last minute job.

Despite all this I have managed to get a few cards done this week, 4 birthdays and a civil partnership. Three of the four birthday cards were using backing papers and toppers from CraftyJak's Backgrounds & more cd. The 4th one used DCWV's The All Dressed Up Matstack for the background, a piece of black cardstock cut to fit through 'Bosskut's' Journaling Ribbon Slide with a silver peel-off coloured black.

The Civil Partnership card, the first one I have ever had to make, I used peel offs which were stuck onto clear acetate and coloured with Sakura glaze pens and then cut our before being stuck onto card stock and finished off with a peel-off.
