Well for a change I have been very busy scrapping wise over the last few days. I finished my entry in the wonderful Buffy CJ - Girl's Rock - This book is just gorgeous. I was really reluctant to part with it...maybe that was why I was so late posting it! Sorry again Jane :D

Then I had "hunners" of cards to make - this one was for my friends daughter. I used the Klutz templates I bought in Borders (see previous post) to hand cut the clothes.

Then a very quick card ie at the last moment, for my uncle's 65th Birthday

Then a card for my nephew using offcuts of the new Junkitz papers

As well as that I also finished a card and a LO for my Angel Crafts design team kit, plus a birthday card for Robert (it is his birthday on Wednesday), a name badge for Scrapaganza AND started my planner for the retreat as well...PHEW!

I also got a parcel with some goodies in it from Bargainpack

These little cuties make a nice little neat row of holes (one is single, one is double) for stitching on your layouts.

And this is a new version of the Dymo punch - it has both an upper and lower case alphabet and comes with some gorgeous colours of tape.

Non-scrapping news

We went to party at a local restaurant to celebrate my uncle's birthday at the weekend. It was great to see some faces, including my cousins that I hadn't seen for years...and I mean many years plus it was lovely that my mum felt well enough to come out to play too :D

Kenneth went to Aviemore for the weekend...yes yet another weekend away. His friend's parents had invited him to stay with them at their holiday flat for the weekend. They managed to go swimming and spend the day at Landmark, although the weather wasn't all that great.

I think I will try and get an early night tonight as I have a busy week for thr rest of the week:

Tomorrow - Talk by Christopher Brookmyre at Glasgow University. If you haven't read any of his books then can I strongly recommend them to you. They are hysterically funny, satirical, crime thrillers set in Scotland. I mane how can you resist a book called "One Fine Day in The Middle of the Night" or "A Big Boy Did It and Ran Away".

Then Wednesday is Robert's birthday so we will have a small family party then.

Thursday I am babysitting Archie (Officially the absolutely BEST behaved baby in the world...EVER!)

Friday - Yaaay off to see Meatloaf in concert

Saturday - out for a meal with Robert in the evening

Sunday - well it has to be a day of rest deosn't it.

So if I don't blog again soon you will know why!!

That CJ layout is something else - I have it at the moment and it's such a cool idea - your 'o' slipped so will stick back down. Fab work Maggie!!

Lovely stuff and very nice cards too. Love the Dymo with the lower case, never seen one anywhere no matter how hard I have looked (Can't get the link to work) Sounds like a good/busy week ahead, have fun!
