Weekly blogger

I seem to have turned into a weekly blogger, I've been in bed really early all last week and worked yesterday so don't feel like I've been about on the computer much. I did these 2 LO's last Friday and have remembered to take their picture today. As you can see the pics are old but I wanted to use some from my photo drawer and get strated so this is a start. Charlotte and friends when she was 6 and the candyfloss one is when she is 4 and my little fat baby boy is only 6 months, ooh those chubby legs are so cute!!

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment it is much appreciated I love reading the comments.

It's Saturday.

Blogger hasn't wanted me to blog over the last couple of days, but it appears to be letting me on now.

This is the only picture of George I could get as he flew by on his exercise ball!!!! However it captures the crazy spell he was going through this afternoon perfectly!! Charlotte's out at a Brownie Sleepover so no pic of her today. George really misses her when she is away as they generally play happily together obviously they do have the odd disagreement but mostly they play well.

Also a picture of some goodies I got for sending a card into beautiful cards magazine which was published in issue 29. I was very excited when it came in the post a few days ago. 2 great stamp sets, some decoupage and lovely ribbons.

Finally Layouts!!

These are the Lo's I did at the crop on Saturday the waterfall one was a class that I did and the other I did in the afternoon. I love that picture of George it is his first 'school' photo (4 years ago) and the day before he'd crawled into the coffee table and given himself a slight black eye, as I was comforting him crying I remember thinking 'oh no your having your picture taken tomorrow'!!
I just have to add some journalling I as going to add some buttons but I think I like it simple. I also have to add the journalling on the camping LO and I have a little journalling shape the same shape as the stripy paper that I cut on the cricut they provide at the crop (such a fab item)

This is the little book I have made for the page maps, it's small enough (4 x 4) to keep in my tools & bits case and will provide just that little bit of inspiration I sometimes need to get going!! Thanks to Tamsin at my crop for the idea.

Shimelles New Class

This looks a fabby class, here, there and everywhere, and well worth a look. Here's a link,

back with pics of my LO's when I've walked the dog!!

What happened top last week

I forgot to be a blogger last week, not sure where the week went but I'm back now, typing as I listen to Charlotte coughing her head off, bless her everytime she lays down and is dozing off cough cough cough and she's awake again. She only stops coughing when she is deeply asleep so it takes ages for her to drop off.

Todays photo is the moon, when I was driving home from the leisure centre the moon was so full in the sky but i didn't have my camera. When I got home from my house it was so low you couldn't really see it through the trees but I got a few shots anyway I tried a few functions on my camera and go tthe best shot with the macro although I had to lean on the wheelie bins to stop myself wobbling otherwise the moon looked a very strange shape.

I went to a crop on Saturday, which was great, there was only a few of us and it was a really nice day out. I did a waterfall class in the morning and did another LO in the afternoon, I will pop them on here tomorrow. One of the ladies had made a litle flip book of page maps, I loved the idea so much that I am making one this evening, it's great for when you're having a mind block, just for a little inspiration.

Snow Day

Obviously I had to do a snow LO today what with a whole extra day to the weekend, no minding babies came and my two were off school so after I'd taken them out to play in the snow we settled in and they played Lego men and watched a DVD while I did a double LO of the pics we took this morning, never have I scrapped photos so quickly!!!

I also have finished Charlotte's book bar a little bit of journalling which I'm going to do now, below are a couple of pages.
I've done a few little tag pages to go in the pockets that have journalling on the other side and I've left space for journalling on most of the pages. She's really pleased with it, which is great.

Self Portrait Sunday

I decided it was about time I had a picture with Gary!! We never, well hardly ever, get our photo taken together so Charlotte took one of us in yet another messy area of the house!!

I'm just finishing Charlotte's paperbag album so I'll hopefully upload that later.
