Something new!

Noticed anything new about my blog? Go on take another look......................yep I have a snazzy new BIG letter at the beginning of my post all care of Adori graphics ace tutorial. I't dead clever and super easy and only takes a few minutes to do. There is loads of stuff to see and a tutorial every Tuesday to snazz up ur blog. Check it out!
So life here in the shires is moving on slowly. I'm still awaiting the paperwork for my CRB, Criminal Records Bureau check, which will be the thing which takes the time to complete. Here in the UK, ALL health care, educational social services and umpteen other jobs needs all records to be checked before employment. It is taking 2 months at the moment so no job until about June by the looks of it, although in my past experience they have always come back quicker.
So last week was pretty amazing interview wise. I was stoked to get a job at last and I have also got some other interviews for permanent jobs as a health visitor over the next few weeks as the job I have is still only as and when work.
So I got my bow this week from Rachel but I look so awful I haven't dared take a picture. I was taking pictures for Ali Edward's A week in the life but I lok terrible. All blotchy and fat, dare I say it. So I am going to see if I can do some nicer pics to post.,
This weekend was our monthly crop and I did the class which was a minibook. It is made from 2 pieces of chipboard and 5 envelopes and is really easy as long as u know where the folds go and how it all sticks together. Karen led the class but it is a design by someone else she couldnt remember who so if is was u let us know so u can credited.
This is what the finished book looks like:
front cover...........

inside pages made from envelopes.........................

I also did another challenge LO and spent my £7.00 winners voucher from last time but blogger is having a hissy fit and wont let me upload the pics. Anyway I'll njust have to do another post wont I?
