CKU update part 2

Thursday night - 24th August
We had our dorm contests and campus crop. My dorm came third (for when we performed our chant) but we got the same prizes as 1st and 2nd. We got a CK book - The Ulitmate Guide to Photo Keepsake and some quickutz stuff but not quickutz. (Quickutz is way bigger in the US than it is here and I didn't see any Sizzix stuff at the 2 stores we visited.) The did raffles all night long at the campus crop but I didn't win anything. I did get some more photos though. And yeah, I am wearing cat ears, bowtie and I have a tail on (not that you can see it). It was all part of our uniform for our dorm, we were Josie and the scrappy cats.

Friday 25th August

I had 2 Making Memories classes, I loved A Window into my World more than the Photo Blocks. I am Rosafying them, A Lisa Bearnson class (very fast paced) and a Magnetic Friendship (also Rosafying that one too). Went to the Friday night crop and worked on my photo blocks, still not done (nothing is finished, all needs photos etc.) I took photos for everything I was asked too, we didn't have time to add them in class and they were always the wrong sizes, colours etc.

Saturday 26th August

Had a sara binder class and a Round the Block class. Loved them both, have altered my sara binder a little and of course I haven't finished my Round the Block class sample either.

Spent the afternoon doing rolodex cards with all the teachers. My 2 favourites that I made are shown below and of course I had no classes with either.

My Rusty Pickle rolodex card

My Tim Hotlz rolodex card (signed too!)

Saturday night we had graduation and got our dipolma and hats etc. There was a crop that night too but most people left. We packed most of our stuff up after the rolodexs so we had a cruising Saturday night.

Sunday 27th - Tuesday 29th

We left the hotel at 9am and flew to New York, from New York to LA, from LA to Sydney, from Sydney to Melbourne. We had delays on every flight and even missed a few. We were supposed to fly straight into Melbourne from LA but our New York plane was late arriving in New York, then only 2 runways were operating so we waiting in a que of over 50 aeroplans for over an hour on the tarmac waiting to take off, missed our connecting flight in LA because of all the delays, got pushed to Sydney then missed 2 flights in Sydney. Evenutally we landed in Melbourne at 1pm (when we were supposed to arrive at 8am). I was so sick of flying by this point and just wanted to be at home and have a shower and clean clothes (we flew and waited for over 36 hours) and see Nat and the kiddies. Everyone was excited to see me but wouldn't let me sleep much last night. The kids loved the bob pressie and Nat loves all the Pop tarts, chocolate, mugs, glasses etc. that I got for him. Still a suprise for him on Father's Day.

Ending this really long post here since I have been typing this for ages (stop and stop). Hope to have photos of my finished projects soon but it all depends on how things go here.
