I'm so bad...

At blogging, but at least I admit it. I don't even have a good reason as to why it's been so long! I've been busy with the kids... nothing new there. I've been doing lots of walking in a bid to tone up, and keep me out of the kitchen to prevent snacking. The weight is coming off slowly... 1 stone and 1/2lb, so far... still a looooong way to go, but I've got the support of some really good friends this time, so hopefully it will keep going in the right direction.

In 2 weeks time I will be at the second Sarahs Cards retreat in Warrington. So excited, and a little bit nervous too. Really hope the people attending like my class. Can't wait to spend more time with the rest of the lovely DT, and all the lovely ladies who will be attending.

Over on the Sarah's Cards blog, this months sketch challenge was designed by me... play along and leave a link to your work for a chance to win a £10 e-voucher for the shop. This is the LO I did.... I love these photos of Drew in the snow.
My first Twisted LO is live this week.... I should have posted a link earlier, but there is still time for you to play along. The twist is 'soft', any way, any how... I went with the Andrex ad line, soft, strong and very long after finding the creative mess Drew had left in the bathroom! I tell you, that boy might be a nightmare at times but he does provide loads of great scrapping opportunities!
The LO that won me a place on the DT went up a couple of weeks ago. I have to say I really like this one. I selected a few of the 100s of photos that Harry had taken of himself on the DSi... I think these will be great to embarrass him later in life... he he he!!!
I've been playing with the March kit for Sarahscards... it's a yummy one, and I've gone quite experimental with it... I'm not sure the LOs I've created will be to everyones taste, but I'm loving them, and they're right up there in my top ten favourites of all time. Here's a sneak of one of them...
And here's a sneak of a safer, none messy LO...
Right got to go, things to do (boring stuff mainly) and places to be (a date with Things 1 & 2 at the cinema to see Tangled). Back soonish

I'm sooooo jealous I won't be at the retreat, darned kids for having significant birthdays at inconvenient times! I loved your class last time, can't I have a good bag of your class this time 'cause it's not my fault I can't go?

Can't find emoticon for 'sticking out lower lip petulantly' - I wonder why?

Eileen said...

That was supposed to be a 'goody' bag not a good one! Maybe the two glasses of wine weren't really better than one ...

Sue said...

Love your LO's they are so eyecatching and creative! Awesome job!

Julia said...

Love the DSi layout - what great pics he has taken! Looking forward to seeing you next weekend and I'm sure your class will be just as fab as last time :)

Loved your class even though I did alter it a lot as I didn't want a mini book or see through LOL - will get it photographed and blogged very soon.

Love the toilet roll layout and what great piccies your son took too.

Loved your apron you had at the retreat.
