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.

Spread the Love!

In an amongst all the busy hectic stuff I've made 65 bookmarks
 for the church youth group Electrify to use at the meeting they lead just before
Valentines day.

I kept them simple and used the Stampin'Up heart punches
and a heart stamp from the Simply Said stamp set to decorate the top of the 

They used the bookmarks to spread the love!!!
They seemed to be appreciated by everyone who took one
along with the yummy heart chocs!

Well the boys have been kitted out with new glasses, and very smart they look too,
but today was my turn!!!
All this reading is starting to take it's toll on my eyes and I was told today
that my muscles in my eyes are getting weaker.
I'll show you my specs when I pick them up next week.

Valentines Bliss

 Well Valentines has passed for another year (did you get spoilt?).
So I thought I ought to show you the card I made for Jonathan.
I lacked inspiration this year until I started playing around with these
 yummy vintage papers.

I added some hearts from the Simply Said stamp set and used my heart punches.
 Ruffled ribbon for some texture and the Bliss stamp from my free 
Stampin'Up stamp set.

Well I have a busy week, I have already sorted Ben with his new glasses,
I've been into school for stay and play, I have almost finished my first essay 
on womens ministry and we have several meetings this week for our officership
Plus at some point I have to fit in all the usual stuff!

Best crack on with it.

Cupcake Crazy!!

 Well, not quite cupcake crazy!!
This is the cupcake that Julie gave us all at the Jems all day
training, and it was very yummy!!! (didn't do the diet any good!!)

 And look at the cute matching little bag we made.
 I think I shall make some more of these for gift bags.
They are the perfect size to hold some of the miniture toiletries from
 Boots or The Body Shop.

Here's a close up of the lovely cupcake just to tempt you all!!!

I have loads of crafty things to do this week including a
65 bookmarks to make for church, several birthday cards to make,
and I need to make a start on Samuel's birthday invitations.
I also need to find time to finish hubby's valentines card.

So hopefully I'll have loads to show you!!

Just Believe!

Good morning!
Here is the first of my posts to show you what I got up to on Saturday
when I spent the day with Julie and her Jems!
We had a fab day of craft and chat.

I love this card, the colours are fab!!
Crumb Cake, Early Esspresso, Old Olive and Melon Mambo.

Both cards were made using the very lovely Just Believe stamp set
from Stampin'Up.

I had a lovely day with the Jems catching up and saying farewell
to my team mates. Not that they will get rid of me completely ; )

I'll be back tomorrow to share some more pics with you.
