Twisted number 3

OK so I know I have done them out of sync, but hey ho... I plan to do sketch number 2 tonight! I had a go at sketch number 3 last night (I turned the sketch on it's side), and all was well until it came to the fine bling... I had fully intended to use the clear stickles I had.... or thought I had. When I cam e to use it though I remembered squeezing the last of it out onto Oliver and Harry's reindeer snacks boxes before!!! Darn kids... who'd have em!!!
All was not lost though and after a bit of a rummage through my stash I found this holographic embossing powder left over from way back in the day when I used it on cards. I used a Queen Kat stamp which is actually a coffee cup stain but works quite well for bubbles when used subtly, and some circular hero arts stamps clear embossed with the holographic stuff. A few magic buttons were added here and there too... just because!
We bought Bear this cheapo bubble gun a couple of weeks ago because Oliver got some new gormitis, and it was a good job we also bought the large refil bubble solution as he stayed outside blowing bubbles for pretty much the whole day.... much to the annoyance of our neighbour as they kept popping on her conservatory windows, he he he he!
Think I am going through a green phase at the moment... all I seem to wear is green, and last night the only paper I wanted to use were green.... oh and now I think of it Bear and Dink are in green today!!!

Right off to enjoy the summer sun while it lasts... probably be chucking it down tomorrow!

Laters potaters (yes I know it is spelt wrong but it's how we say it in this house :P)

Parents, scrapping, missed deadlines and poorly sickness!

The title pretty much sums up the past week in this house! My mum and dad came to stay for a few days which was lovely... even though I always fall of the diet wagon when they are here! We were hoping for a day at the seaside but it didn't happen due to the good old British weather. We took the boys to Slide and Seek instead, which they enjoyed. They went home on Sunday afternoon so Sunday evening was mine to scrap away...
I fully planned to do the 1st twisted sketch to submit for the DT contest only to realise that I had missed the deadline big!!! I got it in my head that the deadline was the 26th when in fact it was the 16th... oh well, I had fun playing with the sketch anyhow. Here is the LO I did (after turning the sketch sideways). One of Dinky Doo's first photos which shows him NOT enjoying being weighed! His birth story is on written on a tag book which slides behind the photo. The papers are all from Sarahscards, I bought them on a whim just because they were so pretty and after looking at them a few times wondered why I had bought them as I was unlikely to use them having 3 boys... but I have to say I think they work quite well for this photo.
I have also been scrapping with the July Sarahscards kit, which has some stunning papers in it, and the most adorable chipboard apples... here are a few sneaks of what I have created.
On to the poorly sickness!!! My turn this time and I was struck by a 24 hour bug thing yesterday which rendered me pretty much useless for the whole day :( On the plus side though, when I wasn't throwing up I was fast asleep, so I have had the most sleep ever since I was 7 months pregnant, and my stomach is the flattest it's been since Drew was born... every cloud eh ;)

Well I better go and do something productive, to make up for yesterdays getting nothing done whatsoever. Back soon with Twisted sketch 2.

Just a few pics to share...

A couple of weeks the boys had their photos taken at Pixi Foto in the local Mothercare. I went with an idea of what I wanted and wasn't going to spend a lot blah blah blah... but they get you!!! 80% of the photos they took were gorgeous and I could have bought them all if money had been no object. In the end we went for an individual one of Oliver and one of Harry,
and a large group arrangement made up of these photos
I have scanned the pics to be able to print them out to scrap for their albums.... naughty I know but hey, I paid a small fortune for them I will do what I like with them!
Been a busy couple of weeks here with the kids being off school... thank the lord they go back on Monday so I will just have the little ones to entertain and feed. The weather is lousy here today which is good as I can be indoors blitzing the house so that I can actually get some scrapping done tonight... and I am so going to make sure I do. I haven't done any for ages as I got caught up in the whole Britain's Got Talent thing... the best people won, I could sit and watch Diversity all day they are amazing. And what can I say about Simon Cowell.... I'm afraid I'm on the phwoarrr side of the fence where he is concerned... am actually considering auditioning for BGT 2010 just to get a wink from!!!
And as for Big Brother this year... I watched the launch show just to see what bunch of misfits they found this year.... not sure if I'll get caught up in it all though, time will tell.
I can share these LOs with you now that were created using the May Sarahscards kit. Another gorgeous kit to work with, I sub on behalf of my mum and she hasn't been disappointed with a kit yet.... each month she says it's the best kit so far, so if you are looking for a kit to sub to Sarah and Lianne do put together lovely papers and emebellies... you will not be disappointed.
Right off to shower and dress so I don't look like a tramp all day.
