Some LO's and..........................

Some news to share with you all.

It's been awhile since i last updated my blog but we have been kind of busy and unfortunately i had a tummy bug last week - which was not nice so took me awhile to get back to normal.

Last Saturday Liam had a Monster Truck Experience up at Thurleigh in Bedfordshire - a Christmas present from his Auntie - which was certainly different. He really enjoyed it, although it was a very cold and windy day but of course did not stop me taking photos or Tim filming.
Tim has put together a video here:

On route Tim kindly diverted to Stamping Up (A Scrapbook Store) which was only 20 mins away from the Monster Truck Destination, and Oh my god - it was heaven. I was really good and only purchased a couple of pieces of paper, but i could of spent hours there. I have decided that one weekend i shall drive there for a day out as we do not have any local stores where i live, as it is so nice to see before you buy.

Last week after having a couple of days being poorly i logged into my mail to find an email from Louise and Tara from Cleo Crafts in Northern Ireland (http://www.cleocrafts.co.uk/) asking if i would like to be a Guest Design Team member again for November - this really was a pick me up as i had no idea this was coming. I have kindly accepted the offer and hopefully as we speak my pizza box is flying to my door so i can start being creative. So start watching for the upcoming sneak peaks!!!!! Thanks girls for the opportunity.

As for LO's i have 2 to share.
The first one is something i done at a crop a few weeks ago. I saw these Basic Grey papers in a shop and had to use them that day. I choose a photo of Hannah back in 2006 on American Independence Day waiting for the local community parade. She just looks so young and adorable - how this little girl melts my heart.

Second LO is a sketch found by one of my fellow Team Members on UKS - WestieGirl.

I used photo's of Liam when he was much younger living in Holland. When ever we went to the park he always pulled silly faces - hence the title!!!

For this i used Prima 'Dude Collection' - love these papers, especially for the boy LO's i have in mind.

My attempt:

So as you can see a few busy days.
I have a few projects on the go and am almost finished with Pencil Line sketch 105!!!! Hopefully next post i will show you.
Hope your all enjoying the beautiful weather we have at the moment - make the most of it and i will be back very soon
Take care
