Brisbane Zombie Walk 2010

I had an absolute ball on Sunday at the Brisbane Zombie Walk. It was amazing just how much effort people went to on their make-up and costumes. Some of the Zombies who joined in the walk were the Where’s Wally gang, Zombie Smurfs, Santa, clowns, brides, prisoners, the Navi from Avatar and countless others. Here are just a couple of pics from the day ….IMG_0036IMG_0062IMG_0067

Get the kids scrapping ....

I'm having a lovely time at school on Wednesday afternoons scrapping with a number of Year 5, 6 and 7 students during 'Options' time. I feel really lucky to be able to spend this value-time with the students, it really is a great opportunity to see each other on a different level than the normal teacher/student dichotomy. The kids are constantly surprising me with their creativity, though a number still need to learn that there is such a thing as too much on a scrap page.
One student came to me today, Friday, feeling a bit blue and wanted to know if she could spend some time scrapbooking because 'it makes her feel better'. Of course I willingly grabbed my stash and sat her down at a table and let her create to her hearts content. Would you believe she whipped up 4 pages in about 2 hours!! And she was smiling while she was doing them.
I just love the way that our creativity works. It's like our own anti-depressant sometimes.
I'll post some pics of the kids layouts as soon as I can,
