I am off to Shay's tomorrow for some making, which will be really good as I have some projects on the go...... I have been really good here today and concentrated on housework, although I must get the housework finished....
I have taken some photo's of the "Deal or No Deal" phone we have, for a challenge I want to complete for BASB: What Irks You?
I got some more stash today from Sugar and Spice again, the bits I wanted to pick up on Saturday but I was trying to be good... How bad am I? I have gone over my limit that I have set myself.. I must be really good next month!!!!

As my nephew and niece are staying and we are all having a making day. I thought that I would ask Mitchell to help me and so he drew the face for me and wrote on the tags to make the book and also drew the border around the photo and the 12x12 paper.
The photo was taken in January when we were all in Disney Paris. We were all awaiting the Parade, Mitchell was not happy as he could not see, but infact the parade had not started yet and we had a good place. When the parade passed us we were right at the front and the characters came up to us to say hello.
Mitchell completed the tags with, I was sad, I was grumpy, I was bored waiting as that is what he said when he say the photo. This is the first time that I have included a childs work in a LO and I have really had good fun and it has also been fun using the acetate.
I recieved my little stash order this morning too from CraftSuperstore. I can't wait to get stuck in......

Within the LO there are a couple of firsts for me; the first time I have included any doodling on a LO, I was inspired by some Deluxe 12X12 and had a great time with a Glaze Pen,the first time I have made some of my own embelishments, the black ink splodges and hearts are cut freehand on Bazzil Card and covered with Glossy Accents, I have also used Glossy Accents on the letters which are American Crafts....
I am not working tomorrow,so we are planning to go out for the day and just spend some quality time together. I have been asked what I would like and how romantic I have asked for Stash!!!!! I am getting low on brads and little bits so I want to try and build up my basic stock.....
Now look at the photo below of my true love Paul with our little girl in Disney Paris, May 2007. I think that there is resemblance of the men above... how lucky am I married to a man who is so good to me; loves me, treats me and really cares for me and was just the best Daddy in the whole world.
I love you daddy xxx Happy Valentines xxx Love your little Angel xxx

Now, shock horror I have used brown and pink for the CJ below. I was not a fan of these colours until I completed the entry... The CJ was entitled If Only I could....
I had great fun and really love the papers, and the tape measure....
One of the CJ's was called My Favourite Thing's and had a DLO of a garden scene planned, then whenI looked in the CJ everyone else had thought the same.... So I decided to play with the title and complete my entry on the song from the film and musical The Sound of Music...
I was not a lover of Snowflakes before I completed the entry, but they have grown on me... and of course my "Girl in white dresses with blue satin sashes" had to have a little glamour dust.
For the CJ Wherejust had to have fun with the Essex Girl Thing....
Love Is CJ, I had to have a real think as I was planning to complete a LO on Last Rolo, but someone beat me to it. So I thought I would complete one about Marmite kisses, as I love it and he hates it xxxxx
Always Wear Sunscreen was the CJ that I was really looking forward to as you are to complete a LO on someone that has inspired you or made a real impact on your life. For me it is a lady called Theresa Healy as she was my Brown Owl, when I was a Brownie Guide. I went on and became a Young Leader. In life I have pursued a career in Social Work, specialising in Disabled Children. Within the Brownie Guide Law and Promise you state that you will always try your best and help other people... words that I have always kept close to my heart xxxx
I have not blogged for so long as I have been having such a bad time.... I miss my little princess with every beat of my heart and I think that the reality of living or should I say existing without her has finally hit home... with avengence.
I stopped blogging lat year and then did not scrap for months, was just finding it all too much.
I have now started to scrap again and I am really enjoying it and think that I might start to post again.....
So give me a little time and you never know I may start posting my little makes xxxx
