Oooops! I did it again!

It's been such a busy month that I haven't had much time on the pc let alone time to blog! Sorry!

Dean, Rachel & Olivia had to come home from Germany tow weeks ago due to her granddad being very ill & then unfortunatly passing away last week. His funeral was Wednesday so they have to return home this weekend. Although it's been lovely seeing them again so soon, I wish it would've been for happier reasons.

Well on a lighter note, I've been out today shopping for something I've really wanted all my life .......................... a dolls house!! Yes, a little girls dream that's took almost 50 years to come true!
The kids - Dean, Natalie & Lee are buying it for me for my upcoming milestone birthday! I'm so excited to get started on it you wouldn't believe!
I haven't got a picture of it that I can post just yet so once I get started I'll update with my own photo's & the building process.

Well that's it for today, I have got a few more SU card photo's that need uploading but my camera is downstairs! ......... I'll try & make time to do it tomorrow!

Thanx for taking the time to come visit me, I'll see you all soon, love

Back again!

......... Bet you weren't expecting that!? LOL

I'm here to upload a couple of projects I've been working on at the crop yesterday & a few SU cards I've done over the past week or so.

This first page is Olivia a couple of weeks ago, she just looks like she's modelling here so that's why I chose my title. Rachel & I were laughing when I uploaded them to the PC cos' we hadn't realised at the time of taking them just how grown up she looks & it's as if she was posing for us! .....15 months old she is!!..... Whats she gonna be like when she's older I wonder! ??
Anyway, I used the new MME Bloom & Grow collection here, it's so beautiful in real life!

This is Henry in the bath a few weeks ago, he looks so like Dean when he was his age it's scary!!
I used the new 3Bugs for this again, so 'boyish' & so cute!! ........... This collection is so quick to use cos' the base papers are almost done for you, I just added some stickers & hey-presto!

And here's the cards that I did, some of the stamps I've used are discontinued hostess sets but I love them so much that I still love using them!

If you want to know any of the details or stamps etc I used in my cards please don't hesitate to contact me or leave a comment & I'll get back to you.

Thanks again for visiting, just off to watch the skate off in Dancing on Ice, I'll be back soon, take care, love

......... not here I'm affraid but over at a good friend of mine, Sally there's some fab goodies there so get yourself over & see if you can win all that lovely stash! And while you're there take a look at all the great cards & projects she creates!

I've been scrapping again today at the Golborne Crop, had a lovely day with lovely girls & delicious jacket spuds with all the trimmings & cakes galore - what more can a scrapper ask for?
I'm shattered now so I'm gonna have a bit of a tidy up in my craftroom then chill a bit before an early night!

I'll be back some time in the next couple of days with sneakies of the stuff I did with Sarah's March kit.

Thanks for popping in, se you again soon, love

............ that's what I got first thing yesterday morning!
Dean arrived home from Kenya a month early!! YEAH! I was the only person that didn't know he was coming home but I didn't care when I found out I was just so pleased to see him. He looks so well all tanned & gorgeous!
Even though he's only just got back to the UK he has to be back at work in Germany next Monday so they're going to travel back there on Wednesday. I'm a bit sad but understand that he, Rachel & Olivia need to spend some time together, just the 3 of them, before he goes back to work. It won't be too long before we see them again though, they will be back here in May so it's not too long to wait.

I went cropping yesterday in Warrington & got my hands on some gorgeous new stuff from Sarah - 3 Bugs, Pink Paisley Fetching, American Crafts remarks & some new thickers, some pom-pom trim & My Minds Eye Grow and I've been scrapping with some of it already!! .......... oh and I won one of the raffle prizes too - a Tinkering Ink Botanical Bliss kit! :) ......... I guess it was my lucky day!

Here are the 2 layouts I did at the crop, the first is of Henry last November, I still need to do my journalling on the cream sticker mat but thought I'd show you anyway. He was made up cos' he could sit up on his own on my bed, as soon as we put him on the floor he lost his balance again & tippled over, it wasn't long before he could do it all by himself though & now he's crawling there's no stopping him!!!

I used the new Pink Paisley Fetching collection for this, it's absolutely gorgeous in real life, I got it all so expect to see some more pages with it soon.

This is Henry again, I love his smile in this photo, (look at his two little teeth) it was taken by his mummy on his first Christmas morning (2008)
I used the new 3 Bugs in a Rug Snips & Snails collection, I just love them, they're perfect for Henry at this age & sooooo cute! I'm going to get on & use the rest of them while I have the photo's & urge to, so watch this space!

I've also been busy doing my DT stuff using the March kit from Sarah's Cards and will upload some sneaks very soon - I did take some photo's on Saturday but when I've put them onto the PC they're not as good as I thought so I'll try again tomorrow, fingers crossed the light is better then!

Well I need to get an early night so I'm off now, thanks again for popping in, please come back soon, love
