Easter Cupcakes

 Long time no see!!
I'm going to try and blog at least once a week to keep
you all updated.

Here's the first.....
a batch of Easter cupcakes ready for us to take to the Salvation Army
 hall tomorrow for the all day cafe event.

I treated myself to a new professional icing set from Lakeland
that has wonderful large nozzles perfect for creating those large swirls
on top of cupcakes.
I think it worked really well.
What do you think???

Girly Birthday

After such a manic week I have found time to 
show you this card I made for our niece who's birthday is today.
I've used a mix of stash from my draws as I'm trying to use up stuff rather than buy
anymore, well for a little while anyway!!!

The image is coloured using my promarkers and I've added the 
chunky flower and ribbon for more interest and texture.

Tomorrow we are off to cousin David's farm to see all the new lambs.
Here's hoping it doesn't rain!!

Party Time!

It's almost party time again as Samuel's 7th birthday is just around the corner.
Now that makes me feel old, particularly as we have just remembered 
the twins 8th anniversary!!

Now being a mega Lego fan he is having some friends round to 
build Lego City, so of course the invites had to be Lego.

The other side has all the details on and so I'm not going to show it.
Now I have to turn my mind to his cake, yes a Lego cake!!!!

I'm off to catch up on some housework.

Milkshake Cupcakes

 These are cute mini milkshake cupcakes with strawberry milkshake 
icing, topped with crispie chocolate balls!
 Making you feel hungry???

I'm finishing off costumes for the boys today and I'm hoping to find a bit of time
to do at least 1 scrapbook journal page.
I'm hoping I can get some photography done over the weekend too.

I'll be back with pictures for you.

Cool Boy Birthday

Here is a quick card that I made super fast in about 5 mins before 
Samuel went to a friends birthday party at the weekend.

The image is coloured using my Promarkers and the papers I used are
from the Smirk range that Samuel chose for me to make his birthday 
invitations with.

I've been busy digging around in charity shops sorting costumes for
World Book Day dress up at school.
Almost done, just a little creativity required now!!!!

I'll show you pictures later in the week.

Mix and Match

 I've 2 special scrapbook pages to show you today.
These are for a special album I have been trying to do for the last 8 years!!

These pages are made with some bargain kits I found in TK Maxx
not long after the January sales.
They are from American Crafts and were such a bargain price that I got 2!!
One for a boy and one for a girl.
I'm combinimg the 2 kits to make an album for my twins.

I'm so tired today, Samuel was up in the night with a high temp and up early again
this morning.
Which was bad planning, as it was my turn to do the All Age Worship meeting 
this morning. Thankfully I was well prepared and it seemed to go well!!!!

It's (hopefully) back to school tomorrow so we have loads to do
so I best get on with it.
I'll be back tomorrow with a card to show you.

Birthday Tilda

Hope you're enjoying your half term holiday!

The boys have a busy week planned with 2 days at holiday club
doing all sorts of fab stuff including circus skills, while I'm at home getting some paperwork done!!

This is the card I made the other week for one of Ben's little girl friends.
I've somewhat neglected my Magnolia stamps so I am trying to make up for lost time.
This little one was still in it's packet!!!!

The papers are a selection out of my draw along with the other bits used.

I'm hoping to start working on Samuel's birthday invites this week as it's getting ever closer!
Baking and dvd's are on todays to do list.
