Bad blogger.... again!!!

Ok so just for a change I have been a very bad blogger!!! But in my defence I have been busy crafting! I have been bitten by the knitting bug again... it happens at this stage of pregnancy, and is a hormone thing and not at all granny like... well that it my story and I am sticking to it!
I have been doing lots of craft activities with the children too, so our house hasn't been glitter free in weeks. I turned to say something to Rob last night and noticed he was twinkling in the light of the Christmas tree with some stray glitter on his face..... of course I didn't tell him, and it was still stuck this morning so off he went to work looking all bootiful and sparkly.... he he he!!!

I have been scrapping a little here and there too, although this is getting tricky already as thing 3 doesn't like me sat hunched over a desk and puts the boot in when I do... very dangerous when armed with a craft knife!

These LOs were done using the last November kit from Sarahscards... can't believe I haven't got round to sharing them already!
These ones were done using the December kit which is currently on sale here.
This LO was created using this sketch over on the Rough Draft blog... ok so it is loosely based on a rotated sketch, but I was really happy with the outcome. Don't forget to share your LOs for the sketches to be in with a chance to win a RAK... but more importantly because the sketches are fab and really get the creative juices flowing!This LO was done at the crop a couple of weekends ago... a just because LO straight from my head, but using all the new goodies I bought from Sarah on the day.... seriously I don't know why I bother taking stash, I always use the stuff I buy new!

We went to Mum's at the weekend for the last time before Christmas, mainly because we wanted to take the boys to see the Santa there. We have a classic photo, but I can't for the life of me find the scanner software to upload it tonight... will have a hunt in the morning so I can share with you tomorrow.... guaranteed to make you smile!!!

Wow you may be a "bad Blogger" but when you do share, wow what a blog it is. Look at all those fab LOs. So colourful and textural and collaged. And it all works seemlessly, nothing fighting with other elements for attention in the pages. I just love the cohesion.

Oh & for the record - knitting is old, fogeyish and grandma-ish no matter how you kid yourself haha and don't let anyone tell you otherwise (but I'll tell everyone its cool and trendy if you knit me a huge Dr Who size scarf haha). As for glitter - know that one - Nick still points out that I have a sparkly face and the carpets are, lets say, festive, at the moment.

Gorgeous LOs as always - loving the colours in the last LO - beautiful x

I'd like to say I'm a knitter too - but seeing as I started something at about easter time and it still isn't finished - don't think I can stand by that claim!
