The shop is super well stocked and the ladies Adrienne and Pauline offer a very prompt and efficient service!!! The forum is full of info and challenges and there are many prizes up for grabs.

birthday celebrations and busy creating

I had a wonderful birthday with thanks to those who helped me celebrate. I was very spoiled by the boys and am now a proud owner of a Pandora bracelet with a present shaped charm bead. My dear friends Tracy and Chantelle also spoilt me rotten with their company and laughter as well as gifts. Thanks so much gals xxLOL Amanda has also helped to stretch out the celebrations and we are out for a girly day tomorrow, to celebrate us both getting a year older(and wiser!!)

I have been busy getting my Next Stampin' Up crop organised and deciding what the class will be. It is going to be a blast of a day so head over to my Stampin' blog for all the details.

I have finally completed a layout for SWV too!! I seta challenge on their cyber crop and here is my take
Not a great photo as it was so dark here today and I took it later than I hoped but it gives you the idea.

I have also been busy making cards; this one was for Justin's birthday and the little tatoo says love (heart) u. Thanks to Lynette for the great card idea.

And some others

Well I had best head off to bed or maybe the scrap room, but it is almost time for the pumpkin to turn so maybe bed would be best.
see ya soon

oops I did it again!

I know I am hopeless at getting here now adays!! I am so busy what with all my DT work, teaching, Stampin' Up, being mummy and wife. I have been creative these last few weeks but most my pages have been started but not quite finished! I have got a couple of things to show though.
This is the layout I made from the sketch I designed over at Scrappin' Patch. if you would like to join in with the fun then head over there and find the challenge in the forum. It finishes on Friday!! I would love to see some of your takes.

I headed to Windy Welly last Sturday intending to spend just the day but instead of windy it was foggy. I ended up stranded there until Sunday night and having some extra play time with my dearest friend Broni. She made a wonderful hostess and I was privilaged to meet some of her lovely friends too. We spent Saturday at our team meet and achieved a small amount of stampin' but the evening was more successful and I managed to make a good start on the album for kathy and Colin. Head over to my SU blog to take a look. this is the card I made for our swap. I was quite pleased with it in the end for a non card maker.

Oli lost his front tooth this week and had his first fairy visit. He was gifted $2 which was carefully dropped into his Cashin money box. Luckily he doesn't look too gappy as the new tooth was waiting right behind the wobbly one!

It is birthday week for us and justin and I are heading ut on Friday with Amanda to help her celebrate too. A few drinks and a bum wiggle to a band will be much enjoyed!!
Signing out at a very late hour
