My new goodies!!!!

Here are my latest goodies from America - arrived today safe and sound.

I so love these kits - really unusual pieces that i probably would never buy myself - but having somebody else put them together is just magic.

Have lots of idea's what i would like to do with them, but i currently have another project on the go.

It's nearly already the 1st of the month - when the new kit is revealed for June. This is my little treat every month to which i subscribe to - to me it's worth every penny!!!!!!

As promised..........

Here is my latest LO, Not to happy with the final outcome.

Pictures are of my DD and Niece being silly a few years back. How much both the girls have grown up.

I will be back later with a picture of the goodies i recieved today - so scrummy!!!!!

As ever thanks for looking and take care

A whole week and

no blogging!!!
Well that is not a very good start by any means but i do have reasons.......
So Liam and Hannah are now on another half term break from school, my god only 6 weeks left of this academic year - where has this year gone.

We have just had a long weekend and as usual, good old England was a wash out, so we never done anything exciting. I haven't been feeling great all weekend - had a virus of some sort, yuk! but back to my normal self today.
Hannah was lucky in going to the circus yesterday for her friends birthday party, she loved it apparently. Her first dose of clowns and acrobats................ She has another 3 parties this month also, she has a better social life than any of us!!!!!

We don't have many plans for the week, work tomorrow which the little ones enjoy and then a get together with some friends towards the end of the week. I am currently looking after my neighbours birds for the week - so cleaning out water bowls and chopping apple on a daily basis.

As for photo's or scrapping - lets say i have been a bit slow. I have managed to finish 1 LO, but i need to photograph - so will be loading later, but i am not entirely happy with it. I love the photo's, my daughter and Niece being silly!!!

Anyway i must dash - Tim will be home shortly and i need to get a few things done. I will load some photo's up later so be sure to come back.

Hope your all well and will speak to you soon
Take care

A Rainy Day

Well today has seen the return of dark grey skies, wind and rain. Thought last week was to good to be true, so out come the winter coats once more - we so miss the summery days of Texas, although you are all probably fed up with the high humidity, pleading for rain!!!!

We never went out today, Liam has tackled his room and done a major sort out which it thoroughly needed, just hope it manages to stay clean now but being a teenager (almost) we know the possibility of this.

I finally decided on my next subject after searching hours for the photo's (we have up to 14,000 on disk alone), found the papers and embellishments to match - so i feel another LO coming together - all i need now is peace and quiet and YES it's almost bed time!!!!!!!!!! for the little ones anyway.

I will leave you with a sneak peek of my next lo - at least you can see the colours. Don't hold your breath though as it can take me awhile to do a lo. My friends call me shuffling Sarah - sure they would all agree!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have a nice evening and i will speak to you all soon
Take care

Second Day of blogging!!!!

Well my 2nd day of blogging- wondering how long i will keep this up for.
My guess - a few weeks, months or even years with some luck!!!

So, Hannah went off this morning to go on her first school trip, she was soooo excited. Gone to Bird World which is not to far, just hope it doesn't rain!!! Sure when i collect her i will hear about every different species of bird known to man kind.

Took Liam to the doctors this morning and sure enough he has an ear infection, nasty one at that too. He has had this since Wednesday evening and not moaned about it at all, so poor thing is on antibiotics for a week!!!! Still will not change the fact he has one very untidy bedroom to clean out this weekend...........!!!!!!

Well i was good last night and stayed up and finished my latest LO (To those of you that don't scrapbook, LO is a translation for 'layout' - you will see this abbreviation many times). Have worked with a smaller size this time and i am much happier - less space to worry about filling!!!

First picture is of Liam when he was much younger, doesn't he look innocent - if only this rang true! Used the new papers from Basic Grey - Archiac range and anything else that colour co-ordinated. Must say a thank you though to a good friend Penny from UKS who sent me those lovely alphabets - what a perfect match - thanks hun!

This second LO i really enjoyed putting together. Another 8.5 x 11 size, yes you guessed it the new size for me, why has it taken me so long to finally realise 12 x 12 wasn't for me.

The photo was taken last weekend whilst we had beautiful weather, which we are not treated to very often, it really reminded us of Texas. The children were playing with Dad in the garden who was armed with the hose. I was lucky enough to capture the moment Hannah was about to get soaked and it just had to be scrapped. I used papers from the Pink Paislee line - Office Lingo. I had stored away lettering that looked like water droplets which i used for the word water at the bottom, but unfortunately they haven't photographed very well.

So now the weekend is upon us once again - not sure what we are going to do.

Hope you all have a good one and will be back soon with more creations hopefully.

Take care
