Came home from mums this evening and had an email from Beverley to say I'd got on the Crop Til You Drop DT. I am so pleased, and now very eager to get creating.
Not doing any scrapping tonight... the wine is flowing, but I will be back playing tomorrow.
And as for the challenge by Jen... I may well take you up on that... using household rubbish that is, NOT giving you my beautifulness... although you know you are always welcome to use my stuff hun X (have put next Sat crop on calendar before it gets booked up for something else, and will bring all my stamps)
And talking of stamps... did I mention I had ordered another must have set from Banana Frog?

Both boys went to bed at the same time, without any fuss... so mummy got to play. Did this LO showing Happy Harry when his bib goes on and he sees his bowl and spoon... tonight he woofed his dinner down and screamed for more, and I had made more than the packet says a baby of his age 'should' be having. It would seem that the boy is going to be like his mummy... a real foodie, he he he he...

Ok so here goes...
Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to blog about their seven things and post the rules as well . At the end of your blog, you need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog!
1) I met my husband in an internet chatroom, we met in Chesterfield after only talking a few times and I had a police escort to our meeting place.
2) I am scared to walk on bridges over water and piers (this is not irrational.... they are dangerous).
3) My hands swell up to massive proportions within 10 minutes of wearing nail polish.
4) I have to wash my hair everyday or it ruins my day.
5) I hate talking on the telephone.
6) My favourite film is Big Fish, and I cry uncontrollably every time I watch it.
7) My favourite food is pitta bread and houmous.
Right now I need to find people to tag!!!
Coming to get you....

Had a lot of fun with this, as I dug out the spirograph. I haven't played with that for years... and now I fear that anything standing still for too long will be spirographed within an inch of its life! the thing is truly addictive...LOL!!!
Not a great scan... the colours are much richer in real life... the scanner is probably tired, and so am I, so off to beddy bye byes

Didn't get any scrapping done yesterday..... boooooooo hissssssss to children who keep mummy busy!!! But I did manage to get 4 cards made this afternoon whilst Oliver was at nursery and Niblet slept in my bed. Already started bad habits... he won't go to sleep in his own cot during the day, but snuggles down the moment he is put on my pillow..... but he does look so darn cute, an ickle pickle in a big double bed! I can feel a LO coming on...

Finished the LO last night... must admit that apart from the photos, I'm not loving it at all. Not sure why though.
Still waiting for stamps to arrive from Canada!!! Not ordering from that company again... I can't believe it is almost 2 months and they are still not here...

Oliver and I cut these today from a WHOLE loaf of cheapo white bread... can't wait to decorate them over the weekend.
Went to the Cheadle Hulme crop last night... had a really good time... lots of chatting, not much scrapping, but isn't that what crops are all about...LOL!!!
Got to meet Sam from Scrapfairies *hello if you read this*, always good to put a face to a name.... however I was forced to buy some beautiful buttons... not by Sam, but by the buttons themselves!!! They were calling to me... so I bought 2 packets of mixed blues, 1 each of mixed black and green... and some LUSH spotty and stripey buttons... and do you know what? Shock horror, I even used some straight away on a LO!!!!
The LO needs finishing... so better go and get it done...

TUT TUT!!! naughty me... scrapping recent photos before the older ones... must set myself the challenge that for every new photo I scrap I have to scrap an older photo too!!!
Going out in a mo... taking the boys to the park
for some fresh air. And for once I am going to leave the camera at home so I can focus on the fun rather than getting that perfect photo!!!
Surely even scrappers need to step away from the camera sometimes?!?!?

Not much opportunity to scrap today... Oliver wants to play outside, which is good as he will be nice and tired tonight. But Harry wants to be held rather than being in his pushchair/bouncy chair/bumbo!!!!
Hoping that Rob will take the boys over to the park for half an hour so that I can sort out my work space. I want to match some stash together in the daylight so that I can just get on and do a LO tonight, rather than faffing for ages like I usually do!!!

It is very quiet without Oliver... I miss him loads when he is not here, but I spoke to him tonight and he is having lots of fun with Mama and Grandad. Tomorrow he is going to Center Parcs for the day... that boy really does have a very good life.
Managed to get another LO done today whilst Harry was in his calpol induced sleep!!! That must sound awful, like I drugged him so that I could scrap.....hhhhhmmmmmmm now there's a thought... LOL!
I am going to try and get another LO done tonight, but I really, really, really must go to bed early... I was up ironing until 12:30 this morning and then Niblet was up at 3:00 and again at 6:30.
I have so many LO ideas in my head and just never enough time to get them all done. I am awaiting some stamps from Fontwerks, and have a couple of pics set aside to use for these... and did I mention that I have ordered more stamps today?!?!? oops!!! just fell into my basket whilst I was 'just looking', no more buying stash...
I mean it.... I really do!!!
