All Partied Out!!!

I must be getting old if it takes me DAYS to recover from a party!!!!

The girls had a great time on Saturday.....even though the weather was terrible so our "Garden Party" was held indoors! Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and it really felt like the kind of paties we had when we were kids.....instead of taking the easy (expensive!) option of booking somewhere!

So now I am busy making thank you cards, and am also working on some Design Team work for Funky Kits using the suitably funky "Sassy Girl" papers from Creative Imaginations. I have the PERFECT photo subjects fot these papers!!! Photos coing soon :)

another week.....

...oops a daisy - has it been a whole week since I blogged! Sowwy!!

Had a lovely weekend away in Perth at my Mum & Dad's....was good to have a change of scenery! Then I spent all day monday up to my arms (literally!) in PINK paint....been decorating the girls room for their birthday and it's looking fabby :)

Annemiek turned 5 yesterday.....I just cannot believe my baby is so grown up!

It's all rush rush rush here....trying to get the garden in order for our Party on Saturday too!

Here's a wee photo of the girls doing what they do best......looking adorable!!!!

Bag Lady!!!

Inspired by the doodling class I did at Scrap-a-Ganza and also my friend Trish's project over on It's a Creative World I decided to combine the two to make my very own eco-friendly carrier bag! I am rather pleased with the results and you may just see this available as a kit soon on Funky Kits so you can have some fun & do your bit for the environment! (and it takes 12x12 perfectly so would be ideal for stash shopping or taking to crops!!!!)

birthday babe :)

This last week has just woooooshed by! Still got a box full of Scrap-a-Ganza Projects to be finished off! Just not enough hours in the day!

My Baby is growing up fast! Freya had her 3rd Birthday yesterday....and only another 8 sleeps until Annemiek is 5! We had a lovely day yesterday and she enjoyed her fist session at Playgroup....and had Laura round later to play & eat cake!

Getting very busy over on Funky Kits....lots of lovely new stash arriving all the time! The new Hampton Arts Stamps are gorgeous and I sooooo want to treat myself but must resist as many are down to only one remaining already! I'll get first picking of the next order though!

Heading down to Perth this weekend - better get busy making things for Father's Day too!!

All Scrapped Out!!!!

I am still trying to catch up with myself!!

Had a busy busy weekend in Holland at Scrap-a-Ganza! Did a lot of lovely classes and now have lots of projects to finish off! Was also lovely to meet up with all the other lovely Scottish Scrappers....and the English...and the Dutch! LOL! Best of all I got to meet up with Alinde & Oma and the absolutely gorgeous baby Chiem! Oooooh he is just adorable!

Having a busy week catching up with the HW and Funky Kits but still had a wee play with some pretty paper! The Primavera papers from Paper Adventures are just so nice to work with! And fantastic quality too! Made a pretty card and covered a band-aid tin then made a mini book from beer mats to fit inside. Me likes :) Some of these papers are included in this months "Super Funky Kit" over at - not many left now!

If you are on the look out for inspiration please check out my lovely friend Trish is on the design team - along with some other superbly talented crafty girlies and it looks fab :)

We are heading off to Ikea tomorrow so away to browse the catalogue and make a wish-list!!!!
