Woohooo I am back! After 5 or was it 6 weeks, I am finally back! I had a very busy time with having a friend from Germany visiting. Because I didn’t take any time off work, I tried to spend a lot of evenings and weekends with Petra. I only had some evenings I went for volleyball training, which I didn’t want to miss it, as we were just in the grading phase for the new season. Trying out for a new club meant I had to be there to be considered.
But I am also very happy to say that all the training has paid off! I could have bet, that I will be graded DIV 2, but I have been graded into DIV 1. After over 10 years playing for UWA I am now playing for ECU (Edith Cowan University). Unfortunately my transfer from the other club hasn’t been processed in time so I couldn’t play the first game today, but as of next week I am back on court.
Otherwise I have done some craft, but not as much as usual. The following tab album was actually already completed before my visitor came. I only realised what I was up for once I had started with it: With being semi transparent I had to design the front and back of each page simultaneously! I did proof to be a challenge, but I worked my way through it.
I thought I had written down all the brands and materials I had used, but it seems I have lost that piece of paper somehow in the last couple of weeks. Ha, I just had another look and found it. 😉
The main features are a couple of really old photos I found in my stash and some sayings mainly from a Graphic 45 page. It took me around seven “breakfast sessions” to complete it.
Since I am already running out of time again I will just leave it at that.
Thanks for stopping by
