Am loving this!!

Steve very kindly bought an album for Valentines Day which I have wanted for ages. This woman has the most incredible voice and her songs move you in an amazing way.

No crafting to show you - its half term and been mad around here!!!!

Slow Sunday!

Have had a busy few days so am glad that today is for chilling. Have not touched any stash so I must have not had time!!!!

I made this layout the other day and it shows my ice cream monster - otherwise known as George. I didn't add the flowers at first but it seemed naked so gave it a go and actually its not bad.

I have a few friends who ae going through tough times at the mo and its hard to see people you care about hurting. Its even harder when you don't live near to them and so can't help as much as you would like to. Hugs to you all ((()))

Finally as it's Valentines Day I just want to say to my hubs that I love you and always will. xxxx

Sk8r Boy!

Well starting to feel better thank goodness - don't do being ill - hate it!!!

Not well enough to do housework but obviously can craft (in my defence I have still been going to work!!!!).

Made a couple of layouts yesterday which I am pretty pleased with.

This one shows Harry on his 10th birthday and he is in typical pose mood. The pictures have been shouting at me to be scrapped for ages and so am now happy that they are!

Off to work in a while untill 5pm so I doubt any crafting will be done - boooooooo!

Its Monday!!!

Thats Monday sorted!!!!

Here is the second layout from the kit I bought. Again a very quick and simple layout but to be honest they are great for getting back into scrapping.

Not done any crafting today as have been at work all day. But as I am still not feeling 100% i may have a play tomorrow ;o)

Yup thats me.......again!!!!!

Had a bad head cold last week which knocked me for six and then yesterday an earache started. Wasn't too bad to start with but overnight and this morning I could've sobbed with the pain.

Following a phonecall and visit to the out of hours docs - who I hate to bother - they confirmed I have an ear infection. It is soooo sore but hoping it will get sorted now.

Anyway no crafting was done today as I just felt so unwell.

Here is a layout from yesterday again featuring the boys. It was made using a simple kit so didn't take long but I like it.

Scrappin' at last!

I always say at New Year that one of my resolutions will be to scrap more............and it never happens.

I tend to make cards more which is great but I don't keep the cards. On the otherhand i have loads of photos begging to be scrapped and lots of paper dying to have photos displayed on them!

Soooooo today I made three yes three layouts!!!! Here is my fav of the day - my dad and the gruesome twosome.

Rugby ended well for England today although they made hard work of it! Still a win is a win!

So organised!!!

Well its friday and I am not working tomorrow so am really looking forward to the weekend!

Our money saving project has not gone well today as Steve's laptop finally died last night and so we had to ventue out this morning and buy another. Luckily Tesco's had a notebook which was ideal and so hubs is now a happy bear :o)

Also had a little bit of 'me' time earlier with a haircut. I love going to have my hair done. Its not just the pampering but having a gossip and a laugh with friends - good fun!!!!

Finally managed to get a photo taken of a Valentine's card for hubs. Again using stash I already had together with some chipboard which I inked and then triple embossed for a nice shiny effect. The hearts were covered in 3d glaze which I then cracked for a different effect. As always I couldn't resist some ink distressing and a teeny bit of ribbon.

As Six nations starts tomorrow rugby will be featuring heavily in my weekend plans! Big men getting dirty - good times!!!!!

Busy Busy!!!!

Did not have chance to update yesterday - what a busy day!!!!
Still it flew by especially at work as it was hectic which is just the way i like it. Lots of pretty shoes have come in - wish I had a girl (sigh!!!)
Sometimes I get the chance to make girly cards though. For some reason I have a few Dufex decoupage sheets and so used one for this card. Very girly but making use of all the stuff I have around me.
George has a party to go to on Sunday and this card is for his friend Scarlett. Am loving that name (fav film), infact I wanted Harry to be Katie Scarlett if he was a girl. Steve put his foot down and we settled for Lara Beth (fav film and book).
Today I have Steve keeping me company - yay!!!! Lets see what the day brings shall we? xxx

Funny Old Day

Lots of stuff going on yesterday and today which were not great but life goes on!
Am on a mission this year to try and not buy any new stash and try and use up what i already have (which is really alot!!!) is a new home card made using some paper from a magazine and some images from lilli of the Valley. Added some flowers as it still seemed a little naked - result!!!
