A Box Full of Mojo

Today I had a parcel I'd been waiting for for a very long time, even though I only ordered it yesterday! I fell in love with the CHA Bella BLVD collections as soon as I saw them but, as with most of my faves they seemed to be one of the last few collections to land in the UK. When I saw they had arrived at A Trip Down Memory Lane yesterday I just had to have them, even though I wasn't gonna spend any money on stash til the Gogo shop on saturday. I have to say that I was very impressed with the service from Mel and Jill and was especially grateful that it was so quick cos the wait would have done me in!!!

I ordered a couple from each collection but I think I'll be going back for more. Here's the Superstud......

The Plastino......

Flirty......

And Camped Out....

This was exactly what I needed to kick start my mojo, it was like getting a box full of inspiration. I did two layouts this afternoon that I was really pleased with. I haven't photographed them yet so I will be back with those tomorrow.

I don't wanna become one of those people who blog only about stash so here is a layout I did a while back and didn't share. The pic is of me and Alfie, one of the many pets I looked after when I was housesitting! It's done using BG Lemonade......
This morning I met our whole class for the first time. They're a lively little bunch, a couple of difficult characters but mainly really sweet and very young. It'll be interesting over the next few weeks to see them settling in and getting used to the routine of things. I did an activity today where they each had to draw their face for a display. It was a great way to get to know them cos I could see how they all tackled the same task and gave me time to chat to them. It made me even more excited about one day having a class of my own. Only 3 years to go (hopefully).

Off to dream up some more layouts!
Night xx
