Thanks Jane that was fun - at least it made me blog.

Now for some scrapping news - I have been asked to be on the design team for Angel crafts
I was so thrilled to be asked and cant wait to see what lush supplies I get in my first kit.

I have also managed to scrap 3 LOs this week (will put photos up tomorrow when I get some decent light to take the photos) and the covers for my CJ so that is something.

I have also had lots of deliveries (the last of my Christmas money) over the last couple of days.

I got my flavour of the month kit and I just adore all four kits this month, plus the yummy Crate Avenue papers, Basic Grey Blush pack, some chalk ink pads and some gorgeous ArtWarehouse rub-ons & Little Davis stamps from A Million Little Things

At least I have a day off tomorrow but back in to the office on Saturday unfortunately :(

Same old, same old...

Not had a particulary exciting week this week. The weather has been rubbish to say the least - wet, VERY windy and wet again!

To cheer myself up I have been busy booking some breaks for us over the next few months. So far I have lined up:

2 nights in Edinburgh over the February mid term (Travelodge £15 rooms :)
3 nights at caravan in Nairn at the May bank holiday weekend
4 nights at caravan in Filey in July

Plus we are away to Disneyland Paris the first weekend in March (such a pity I will miss the Luxurious Angel's retreat again!!!

Then mum & dad are taking Kenneth & Kirsten to Lanzarote in the middle of July that should keep us busy and give us lots to look forward to for some time to come.

Oh yes and I forgot about my little trip to Scrapaganza in June...possibly :D

I can across some lovely papers from Crate the other day. I know they have been out for a wee while now but I havents been scrapping much (at all!!!) recently. I was browsing the new products at Lifetime Moments when I saw the Avenue paper line. I have such a great idea for my Buffy/angel CJ after seeing this photo and had to order some papers straight away
I also ordered a new storage unit from the sale from Vertbaudet for some of my stash collection.
I ordered 2 of the smaller units in pink for a total of £29 incl delivery which I thought was pretty good.
