The summer holidays are really flying by this year - not long now until my two are back at school - they start back on 14 August this year.
Can't believe Kenneth is off to "big school" - it doesn't seem that long I was there (yes I know in reality it is a while!!! LOL) - I mean some of the teachers are the same and even the "headie" used to be my maths teacher!

This card was based on a sketch over at ILWS (OK you get that is In Love With Stamping by now :D )

And these two were both for ILWS challenges too

I have been scrapping as well - working on a 6x12 album, so hope to have pictures of that on here soon as well :)

Another couple of cards

A quick birthday card I made for my niece in June

And this one was for a colour combo challenge on In Love With Stamping
We were challenged to use the stampin' Up! colours Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel and Real Red together - this was my attempt - again feel free to play along and if you do please leave a link to your projects as I'd love to see them

DS & DD are off in Lanzarote at the moment so have been enjoying the peace & quiet.
DH and I have even had something like a social life as well!
We went to see Hancock (with Will Smith) at the cinema at Xscape, followed by a meal at Tony Roma's. Really enjoyed the film - would definitely recommend it.

(That was actually the second film I had been to see within a week - saw Mamma Mia with the "girls" last Saturday - what a laugh - mind you not sure what was funnier the film itself or some of the audience joining in!!!)

Then we were round at friends for a meal on Saturday evening and out again for a High Tea on Sunday!

Don't worry it won't last - the kids are back on Friday LOL

Been busy with lots of Stampin' Up! stuff recently - here are a few of my more recent projects:
All products by Stampin' Up!

All three of these cards were made using stamps from the Pick A Petal set. I set a challenge over on In Love With Stamping to use a stamp set in a different way - if you want to play along please so and be sure to leave a comment linking back to your creations :)

I also had some notebooks and post-it notes lying around that I decided to pretty-up a bit.

And this is just a random birthday card I made for no-one in particular

Its been a while...

...but I've been too busy playing this to blog (or scrap much!)

Here are a few of the LOs I made at Scrapaganza in June.
This was Karen Burniston's Architecture class that I actually finished while I was in Holland.

And the other two are from the Bazzill class.

Finally here is what happens when two eight year olds raid the dressing up box...nuff said!
