Roll up! Roll up!

C'mon! You know you want it... All it costs £1 per entry to Julie's Raffle. Have a peek at It's a Scrappy Life for all the info and how to donate.

You know it'll look so pretty on your wall... That and my mum will KILL me if I win it! *lol*

The great tidy-up!

Well, no scrapping for me of late. I do have June's go-go kit to play with, but between tidying and building flexi, there hasn't been much time! I've also been sorting my digi photo's and *really* need to re-photograph my LO's, most of them need to be in better lighting. I'm about halfway through and wondering just how much my style's developed. Might stick a few up for you!

In other news: while browsing Two Peas I discovered something a little special...


Yup, Hallowe'en in Wonderland by Graphic 45. I don't know why, but I LOVE these. I'm not sure I'll ever use them, but I NEED them!

Right, bath time, then Today @ Wimbledon on i-player is my plan for the night, what's everyone else up to?

A chance to sleep

Been catching up on sleep and recouperating this week. I fell up (yes, up) the stairs on Monday and gave myself a good ding. Was rather dazed, but all fine now, except for a bruised ego!

I was going to put these up on Monday, but now will do.

This was inspired by DP who rarely has problems eating any dessert! Guess who couldn't finish this chocolate torte (That might have been me getting the camera out mind, but he should be used to this (or have a begrudging acceptance! *lol*))


And this was my moment of confusion after sending my essay. I loved doing the course and want to continue, but the long term plan seems to have escaped me along with my career options. Like life, not all scrapping is fluffy and nice. I've since sorted out a careers advice meeting and looked at ways to improve my study skills. We'll see how things go :)

It's all over!

My essay has gone, I've pressed the submit button and it's gone :)

I feel so much better now, I might take another look this evening, I can also resubmit if I need to. So I have time to blog again! WOOP! I can't say it's all been study, have done a little scrapping too...

This is Metro, furbaby extrodinaire in the garden. The bunting is flocked (I had a play!)

Next on the agenda...
This is about my sister's 22nd birthday, it seems no time at all it was her 21st! Coninuing my obsession with flock, see those flowers on the left?
Yup, flock.
And just to show it really is an obsession...

Another page about my sister, you can just see the swirls, they have a layer of lime green flock. Actually, the papers has been glimmer misted, painted and flocked, hence the curling edges!

I'm off to indulge in Queen's on i-player (tennis fan, tennis month for moi!) But I'll leave you with this, my sister has developed these cute curls of new growth in her hair.

Ironic really, Grandad called her 'Curly' from a very early age.

Lack of sleep and complimentry polo's

I apologise if this post makes no sense at all (and for any spelling issues)! I've been up since 5:30 this morning, had to travel from Newcastle to Sheffield for a two day workshop. So needless to say I'm shattered! To make it worse, I had to finish my essay. But it's all done, just proofing and editing to do now, I suspect some bits need to be rejigged. Although not tonight.
The meeting was at the Hilton. It's not as glamourous as it sounds, a normal meeting room, flourescent lights and air con! Urgh! But we did get complemetry polos!

What can I say, it amused me!

The hotel isn't what I expected, however, so long as I sleep, I won't care. My only gripe is the lack of a bath! The shower didn't manage to make up for this oversight... Oh, and my room is along a shortcut alley that's randomly noisy. Hmm.. not sure I'll stay here again. But I digress.

Had a play on Big Huge Labs the other day and created this

with the 'photobooth' option. I've got it printed and as I've been meaning to document my studies, it will be appearing on a LO near you soon!!!

Finally I rediscovered some photo's from last year when The Boy had keyhole on his knee having tried to put a ski through it (sideways rather than point ways) some 18 months earlier!

Think they go into the 'must scrap' pile! It'll give me a chance to play with my Banananananana Frog 'It's all about... Arrows' stamps too :D

Right, I'm off to look through the Scrapbook Inspirations Idea's book that I picked up this morning, watch something, anything, on i-player and keel out!
