Mother's Day Crop

Today has been a fantastic day... it started off with Thing 1 presenting me with 3 gorgeous Momiji dolls to add Then it was off to pick Jen up and go to the Northwest Warrington crop run by Sarah, rebecca and Lianne. It's the first time I have been to this crop and it won't be the last. It was a whole day of being looked after, cheered up (thanks Jen and Paul), a bit of shopping and a bit of scrapping... well it would be rude not to do a bit of scrapping at a crop wouldn't it! It was lovely to see so many of the Cheadle croppers there, and to see UKS faces that always make me smile online. Then home to find that Rob had bathed the kids and had his and their tea all sorted. Bless him, he said he didn't know what I wanted but would rustle something up for me... I said it didn't matter as I wasn't hungry.... I left out the fact that I am still on a sugar high from the toblerone that Miss Jen bought for me....LOL!!!

I managed to get 1 and 3/4 LOs done... so here is the first to share... I'll finish the other tonight, and blog it tomorrow. I used a mix of papers, some out of the SL kits and Tinkering Inks from Sarahscards. The chipboard alphas are a mix from Sarah and some from Rebecca... I am loving my alphas at the moment. The cute little keyrings were a bargain buy from Halfords... I got them last summer when we bought the roofbox knowing that they would be perfect for a LO one day.
Yesterday my class went live on Carolinezcraftz. If you like any of the LOs, the instructions can be seen here. The kit was lovely to work with and it was nice to actually use some BG papers, rather than stroke them and stash them away for months....

I have been tagged by the lovely Jems. You have to give a fact for each letter of your middle name... and if you don't have a middle name use your maiden name. Nice short one for me.

A - ambitious... when I do something, I always want to be the best I can at it. When I go back to teaching, I know it won't be long before I want to be head of year again.

N - noisy... I know, not what you thought right? you though i'd be a quiet person... oh no no no... I am loud.

N - nosey... I do like a good ole gossip it has to be said...

E - eclectic... this sums up my tastes, I don't have any particular style... I like what I like, old new, kitsch, unique.... anything goes

Right I tag, the 2 HS:MS Rachels, Shannon and Suzy B.

I am now in a fabby mood after being in a bit of a lull the past couple of days. Spending time away from people who p*ss me off has really helped... I must take time out more often, it is clearly good for the soul.

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.
