Fab Weekend!!!

Wow what a great weekend! I had a couple of days off with my girls & went to see the Princess & the Frog - a really funny great disney film!

Someone thinks I have a beautiful heart - aaaw thanks Virginia :)

On Saturday I went to a crop with my Mum & had a really good time, with some great company, I guess that includes you Mum ;)

Managed to put together most of my circle journal & do a layout with some beautiful graphic 45 papers its here:

Just loved using these papers, they're very easy to cut into & are lovely weight.

Then I had some fantastic news - that I'd been chose for the Butterfly Crafts Design Team, I'm delighted, flattered & really excited about the challenges ahead!

So, as I said a fantabulous weekend.... back to work tomorrow!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Hope everyone got the cards, chocolates & flowers they were hoping for!

Mads & Tigs got a heart on a stick from "their boyfriend" Miller... they share a boyfriend at 4 !!!!

There may be trouble ahead.....

I've spent the last 3 nights finally cutting into my new stash, my latest LO is below:

Just loved doing this, Maddy was tickling my feet when I took these photos & they are just so natural & capture her sunny disposition... I guess this is why I scrap... to capture the tiny moments of my miracles' lives. & I don't just get to look at the fotos for five minutes, I get to create with them... & using papers & pens is just sooooo lovely!. Well, its monday tomorrow, short week for me as Ive taken holiday Thursday & Friday to enjoy half term with the girls.... bring on " the princess & the frog" !!!!

Have a good week everyone xxx

Is crying over a gift a good thing?!

Phew! MIL loved the album - fortunately the tears were happy ones not sad ones....
We all went out for a lovely greek meal and ate far too much... no change there then those of you who know me might say!

DH has "manflu" today and so my girls night out this evening may well need to be cancelled :(

My next target is to make DH an anniversary card and a valentine's day card (which are both the same day - think I could get away with one card like he usually does?!) Dare I cut into those scrummy prima papers that have just arrived? .... Hmmm I think not, not just yet!

I have two very tired little girls this week after a late night on Monday so they are having early nights which should, in theory, leave me lots of time to scrap - but I cant get motivated at the moment!!!!

I have 2 circle journals to finish as well as the cards to make, and all of my fotos taken since christmas to scrap, also have a LO to do for the 4 ways challenge for Scrapbook Magazine.... its a real tricky one too as the kits is nothing like my usual style, but pushing the boundaries is good I guess!

Will have a crack at the valentines card tonight & upload tomorrow!

Happy Wednesday! xxx

So little time so much to do!

Goodness me, January was a busy time & February is proving to be even busier!
I've been frantically working on an album for my MIL's 60th birthday - her birthday is today & its finally finished (at around 8pm last night!!!)
Once she has it I will upload some pics...

I'm feeling like an evil mother this morning, having subjected Mads & Tigs to typhoid & Hep A jabs in advance of our holiday to Egypt... hopefully it will all be forgotten by the time they come home from school!

I thought I would post a few older layouts today, now that Ive got the birthday album done I can get down to scrapping some of "my" stuff with the gorgeous papers & primas that BIL brought home for me fromt he States... watch this space!

This was taken of Mads on holiday in Spain - her sitting still is such a rarity it had to be scrapped!

I love this photo of Tigs & J - used the gorgeous November kit from Sarah's Cards

I'm out for a yummy Greek meal this evening - the girls are addicted to olives (strange I know!) so it  should go down well with them!
