Good Morning...

campers. Sorry for being awol for a few days Trying to fit work, DS, crafting and blogging in has proved harder than I thought.
I have managed to make some cards though. They'l be on display later.

What great weather we've been having. I just hope it holds out until our holiday. WOOHOO ! a whole week in Cornwall. Can't wait it's my favourite place. We last went 2 years ago when we got married and hubby took us to Fifteen, Jamie Olivers restaurant. It was fantastic.
Still got a while to wait before we go. Am sooooo looking forward to it.

Well thats me for now. Will pop back later.

Well its ...

nearly the weekend thank goodness. I'm shattered.
We went to the local park earlier had a little run around and climb. Off up into "my room" in a min to have a bit of a potter. Need to get some ideas made up before my head fills with something else.

Enjoy this lovely weather while it lasts. Going for a cuppa !

This is what

This is what ...

I've been up to this week. I've managed to delete a slide show from a previous post and put it in a post for today. How? I do not know ! I'm just a calamity ooops !
But I have made a new slideshow with what I have been making this week.
I will be a bit more productive now DS has finally finished school for the summer. Yes really this time.
He was given a certificate from Playgroup to wish him well at "big boy" school. He will be going back for mornings just for the first few weeks. School only take him part time until the middle of September. He's really looking forward to it even though he's not in the same class as his best friend.
Tap Tap !! Just checking you haven't nodded off yet LOL.

Thanks for looking and listening.

It was lovely to get out, see friends and have a chat.
Got an anniversary card to make tomorrow and some stamps to have a play with. WOOHOO ! can't wait.

What a lovely...

day its been. The suns gone in but it's still muggy so I think we may get a bit of rain. We need it to freshen the air.
I've added some new links in my favourite sites, so please take a look.
Not much crafting gone on today. I'm going to make a template for a card in a min just to see if it works. Fingers crossed !!!

I'm off to get some more choccy biccies and a cuppa.
Have a lovely evening.

How daft am I ?...

Don't all shout at once LOL. There's me getting myself all prepared for DS finishing school tomorrow and guess what ? He's still got another week ! He doesn't finish until the 22nd. Never mind.!
So serious craft time is put back by a week. So those little ideas floating about in my head will have to wait another week.
Scrapping Dabblers Friday and the subject is journalling and ME! Journalling no probs its the pic of me thats scary. I've only ever scrapped myself twice. Will put all 3 LO's up after Friday. Or I might just wait til Halloween scare the Trick or Treaters away LOL !

That's me for now, am off for a cup of tea.

I'm ...

back !!!! Thank goodness for that, I thought it was going to be a new PC for a minute there. But my trusty friend is all fixed now.
Haven't done much this week, just pottered in and out of my room, bitting and bobbing.
Thank you Steph for a lovely crop. You're kits are great.

I've had some sad news today about a close friend. She's been diagnosed with cancer. It's floored me to say the least.

Hopefully this week I'l be more productive as DS finishes school on Tuesday for the summer. I think by the time September comes I'l be well practised on the WII and be able to beat the best of 'em at Mario kart. LOL.
It's scrapbook Dabblers on Friday, so I've got something to look forward too.
Good see that not all the choccy biccie's have gone while I've been away.

Here's another ...

This week Ive made...

What has happened ...

to the lovely sun again ? It's very dull and dreary here this morning.

We went to Steph's 1st crop yesterday (indigomill in the blog list). Very good day. Met her Mum and her design team. All fabulous scrappers.
Her kits are gorjus, just gorjus. Pop onto her blog and have a look, it's well worth it.

Back to work for me tonight BOOHOO !. I've had a great week off crafting. Unfortunately I haven't done as much as I wanted, but it's been fab.

I'm off to do a tour of my fav places. Have a fantastulistic day and I'l be back later with pics. Watch this space for a new slide show.

off to Steph's very 1st crop today. I believe there aren't any places left so it'l be a good day.
My MIL is going with me, which will be nice. Not sure what she's taking to do. I've got 2 LO's in mind. I'l put them on when I get back.

Well I'd better get a shuffle on or I won't be ready in time.
Have a lovely day, whatever your up to.

Love Karen x
PS. I've counted the biccy's so no sneaking in while I'm out LOL !
