You've got to love a job where your end of year party consists of scrapping up a storm!! My photos were doing nothing for my MoJo so I made a stack of cards instead........ even christened my grungeboard YAY

Off We Go Again

Back up to Newcastle tomorrow as my Grandma passed away on Saturday. She had a stroke a few months ago and went down hill rapidly over the last couple of weeks (perhaps another stroke?) My mum has been by her bedside (with my Auntie) since Thursday so I'm hanging out to give her a cuddle.

I found out she had passed away whilst I was on the Scrappe Angels Heaven retreat so that was a downer but the girls were amazing and looked after me so well!! I got some gorgeous pages done and will hopefully get a chance to upload them when I get back next week
