just what we all needed!!
we are over driving long distants with our kids for a wee while. Done every month until now since Jan. but on a positve Finn has a great knowledge of what towns are inbetween the Naki + Wellington now!
so some scrappingness finally!!
I did the old Kill 2 birds with 1 stone for this LO + used it for 2 challenges.
SBO are running some challenges till the end of the week in honour of the Queen's BD + I knew I wanted do a challenge where you had to add some shape to your LO........esp since we have all these gorgeous products from the likes of MM + Jenni Bowlin - just to name a few.
Had planned to do it up on Friday night but there are too many great shows on Friday night + my line up is - Top Model (which I missed due to kev watching a movie), Million Pound Property + then my fav Project Runway!! And how fantastic was PR!!
then on Sat morn (as Finn was the only 1 playing sport + Ruby was off to play with a friend, so then I only had 1 child) I hopped on to SIS + played 'the Rules' - where you are sent 3 rules + you have to do it in an hour! So I made the LO work for both challenges + I have being wanting to use this collection from SIS forever............like it only came out June last year!!
My 3 rules sent to me were 1. ink 2. use tape (under photo) 3. use a butterfly
and a close up of the butterflies I made out of hambly. Stamped the image onto hambly using stax on, cut out image + made sure the stamp side of the butterfly was placed down on paper. Easy + fun!
I made this 'Get Well' card for Andrea a few weeks back using some goodies from Sweet Spuds March kit
and since I've being blobbling I've had a good session on the computer + rediscovered the Cosmo blog. Those girls like a good laugh + do a spy a 'maybe' DT call pencilled in!!??
Also just to share these are some of the places I like to visit (i'm sure some of you have got them in your favourites already - never hurts to be reminded, eh!)
Christine Middlecamp. I first discovered her work on SIS last year + then linked myself up to her blog. I love visiting this woman for one her talent is amazing but she inspires me with her bavery + I love how she loves to share her ideas with us. And she is now doing bi-weekly tutorials. Her first one is awesome. If you haven't seen her work before go + check her out. Amazing!! You won't be disappointed!!
Another talented woman I discoverd last year - once again via SIS is Sarah Bowen. I may not scrap like her but I really really admire her style. Her blog is filled with interesting bits + bods + she has the BEST BEST playlist I've come across. Quite often I will have her blog open for a few hrs so I can enjoy this womans wonderful taste in music!!
And lastly a well known gal from 2peas Jennifer Pebbles. I just love how she loves life, her love for junk (be still beating heart), her photos (she takes such fun doggy shots + of her hubby) + finally the fun in her LO's. She looks like she would be so much fun to hang out with!! Also have you checked out her etsy shop!! Such a cool idea!!
Also just to let you know that Elle has a new super site + she has got some awesome deals going down for the whole month of June!! Love her stuff!
and YAY to concrete!!
and why am I so excited about concrete you ask??
well we built this house 8 yrs ago + we have never had a concrete driveway - its either being a grass one or lately a grravel one + with that comes dirt + dust!! Muddy + dirty in the winter + really really dusty in the summer!!
So this morning Mr Concrete layer (not Chris's hubby..........lol) comes in + starts boxing up the driveway. This makes me happy!! Its a big driveway too + the kids are going to LOVE having concrete to ride their bikes, skateboards + shoot some hoops!! But I also have some visions of yukky crashes!!
I'm off to enjoy the rest of the day blobbing!!
