Last day of the holidays

Emily's last day of the holidays! We went into town this morning to get a few last minute things and then went to Cafe Nero for her last hot chocolate of the holidays :o) Had time to unpack when we got home and then it was time to take her to her friend Rebecca's. Today was Rebecca's 12th birthday and they had snacks at the house before going to see Mama Mia! From the run down I got when they got home, they'd had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the movie.
While Emily was out, Mum and I went out to The Craft Barn. I saw a quick demo of the Bind it All - quite impressive (once you've got the hang of it, I would imagine!). I bought a few sheets of cardstock and patterned paper and some flowers. Also managed to get refills for the Xyron 150 which had been one of my main reasons for going. They had just arrived in the store and they had to hunt through the boxes to find them.
Yesterday my diary for next year arrived.
I first got one of these in 2006 (for 2007) in a class on Big Picture Scrapbooking. I loved adding the papers and dressing it up so I decided to do another one for next year. Haven't decided what papers to use yet but will try and remember to post when it's done.

The diary for 2007

I've also done the first two layouts for Shimelle's "Learn Something New Every Day" class. I decided to leave the first one as it was after all. They are very simple so, further down the line, I'll have to decide if I want to add more or not. (The pages are 6x6)
