More of our Christmas..............

............ my stuffed snowman display, these are just the cutest things I've ever made!! They are from a pattern from the Tilda books by Tone Finnanger - take a look, I dare you! LOL......... this is where I got the BOOK from. Totally cute!!

I also did this one for my mum

And our tree - it looks small here but is 7 foot! The picture on the right is a cross stitch I did a few years ago before I started papercrafting & comes out every year together with another 3 very large ones of Santa!

And a couple more bits, a little tree ornament that I got from our trip to Germany last year - from the 'real' Christmas markets, the angel on top of the tree & a 'NOEL' which stands on our unit in the lounge.

Right, I'm off blog surfing now & then a bit of craftroom sorting before I get started on my Christmas cards tomorrow!
Thanx as always for visiting my cyberspace & leaving your comments - they're very much apprieciated!

Some photo's I promised.................

...... first of all I'd like to introduce Baby Paul - how cute?

Then I would like to say Happy 2nd Birthday to our beautiful Grand-daughter Olivia Rae

It was on the 28th November but we celebrated again the day after she arrived back in the UK (2/12)and Henry was there too to help blow out her candles!

Next meet Gracie Anne, she's a spindle doll i've been making over the past few months - I think I'm gonna alter her face tho cos' she's not very attractive with that one!!LOL

Next here's the neck warmer I was telling you about, I decided to give this one to Natalie as an extra birthday prezzie, since then I've made another for myself which is exactly the same & very warm too!

I've also been doing a bit of scrapping lately, mainly at the crops I've been to and a few pages for the January kit over at Sarah's (some sneak peeks below)

This first one is done with American Crafts Junior, Henry with his granddads bikers helmet on - just had to scrap those pics!

An older photo of Olivia which I've scrapped a couple of times before!! LOL but I do love it! I took inspiration for this one from the wonderful Kiesha Campbell's fabulous pages - I used AC Letterbox here & some embellishments from my stash!

Henry dancing his socks off one night - you know that mad half hour they get before bed?? He's such a show off when he knows you're watching!! LOL
I used the fab Nikki Sivills Henry's bbrilliance range for this.

And lastly, a photo of Olivia on the run in the park near where she lives in Germany, I just love this pic & how she looks in it! I took inspiration from one of Jen Jockish's pages for this one - another of my favourite scrappers!!

Here's my sneak peeks for the January kit from Sarah's

Yet another great kit that you're gonna love if you are a subscriber and one you'll miss out on if you don't hop over there and give these gorgoeus kits a try - you won't regret it!!

Gosh, this is a long post! I'm making up for NOT posting often! LOL
Before I go I thought I'd let you see a bit of 'our' christmas preperations -

Well that's me for now, I'll be back very soon with more photo's of our christmas & almost definately more of Olivia & Henry!

Thanx for coming to see what I'm up to, see you soon, love
