It's good news time!!!

The lovely Sarah of Sarahs Cards has asked me to become one of her team members!! And of course I said YES!! I felt so honoured to be asked & will enjoy every minuite of it!
I recieved my first kit a couple of days ago & it's fabulous - some of my fav papers at the mo & gorgeous stamps & embellies! I can't give too much away right now but keep an eye open for some sneek peeks!

We've been to 2 babies parties today & I'm exhausted! The first was at a farm, although it was great the weather definately wasn't! it never stopped raining for the whole time we were there! The second was in a house so at least it was dry but, the one year old who's birthday it was, wasn't very well :( it was sad to see him just about smile when he saw his birthday cake!

Well I'm off now to watch the results of the Xfactor, not quite sure who was my favorite this week - will be interesting to see who goes!?

Thanx for stopping by my place, see you all soon.

I Know - I Know .......

............I promised I'd be back the next day & guess what I just didn't have the time or was busy doing more important things like crafting!!
Anyway, I'm here & uploading a fabulous LO which was done by the fabulous Cal at the Pink Boobie crop a few weeks ago! The reason I didn't upload before was because I couldn't get a very good photo of it - I still haven't but it'll have to do cos' I wanted to show you all! I love what Cal did & wish I could scrap as quick & as good as she can ..........maybe one day when I get over my 'perfection'

I've been to yet another crop since I last posted, it was in Burnley &
organised by the lovey Jayne Although we all enjoyed the meet up, there wasn't enough staff in the shop to look after us as we had expected, I think if it had been on a Saturday it would've been a bit more organised, now Jayne is going to try & get hold of another venue so we can still have the crop twice a month!

Here's a couple of pages I've been working on, I did Olivia's at the crop & set Henry's out which I then finished on Monday, I hope you like them?

I used Basic Grey papers for this one, Olivia has 6 teeth @ 8 months & is happy to show you too! LOL

I also used BG here, it's the new Offbeat collention & I'm sure you'll see me using it a bit more for Henry's pages!
I must sign off now cos' I'm shattered & have an early hospital appointment tomorrow!

See you soon & thanks for visiting me - I MUST try & update this blog a bit more often! .............Oooops! nearly forgot - you may see me quicker than you think cos'I have some good news to share with you!!

A lovely weekend was had by ..............

.......Nanny Cathy & Granddad Mick :) we had Henry stay overnight & he was as good as gold!
He's growing so fast & learning all the time, we saw a real difference in him & it's only been a weeks - we're gonna be so shocked when we see Olivia next month after 3.5months!! we'll sure see a huge difference in her! ..... I can't wait!

I'm just gonna test something here now - be back in a minute!

Yes, it worked!! I was just trying a new signature out to see if it would work, it did but I don't like the box around it so I'm off again to see what I can do!

Yeah!!! I did it!
I think I prefer the red one now to the original grey one - no doubt I'll change it again before too long! LOL!!!

See you all tomorrow with some new photo's of Henry - well I had the opportunity, so I grabbed it! hehe!

Where has the time gone!!???

...... Gosh it's going soooo fast lately!
Sorry I haven't updated for a while but I've been in quite a bit of pain :(

I've been playing at scrapping! I went to the Pink Boobie crop last weekend, it's a crop to raise funds for breast cancer awareness - ironically one of my fellow Stampin Up demo's over at ILWS has this week been diagonsed with the said disease! I was so shocked to hear her sad news but, I know she WILL fight this & WIN!! You go Sam!
Anyway back to the crop - I did 3 pages, one of Henry one of Olivia & another of one of another scrappers boobies! Yes, we had a boobie photo swap & someone else scrapped Micks boobies!! (no way was I having anyone scrap mine! LOL) ..........I forgot to pick that page up so I'll have to wait til' next month to get it!

Sorry about the VERY bad photo's of these pages, they have transparencies over them & I couldn't get them any better!!
I used the new Fancy Pants collenctions on both, they're gorgeous papers etc & are so much better in real life!

I've also done a few SU cards over the past couple of weeks, I hope you like them?

These first 2 I used the 'Pick A Petal' set.

This one I used
'Seeing Spots'
'Oh So Lovely' (retired hostess set) & the scallop circle punch!

And finally, for this one I used
'Simply Said' & the scallop circle punch again! ...... maybe I won't use this as often when my scallop edge one arrives!!

OK, that's it from me for now, I have a special LO that I need to upload but I haven't had the chance to take a good enough photo of it yet - maybe tomorrow?

Thanks for taking the time to visit my place on the WWW, see you all soon!
