Alexandra Palace Stash

Well today I went to The Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show.
I had a great day and got all that I had on my list apart from on item.
I also got tons that was not on my list and now have another list. Craft stash shopping is just a never ending, I love it!
There were a few new companies at the show. It was nice to see them and they had some great new stuff to show.
Sadly there were some companies that I was hoping to see that were absent and not as many stamps as I had hoped to see.
Oh well I will have to go shopping again soon. x

Greenwich Park

Today I took the boys to Greenwich park with Louise and her two girls. We met up with Shimelle and some other great people who's names escape me (i am not good with names).
Louise had an invite to meet up with them and take some pictures. She kindly asked if I would like to join her and I have to say I was a little apprehensive but am now glad I said yes.
Shimelle was lovely, great with the children and full of interesting stories. She had also baked cup cakes for everyone.
The weather was perfect and we all had a great time.
The boys have not stopped talking about throwing leaves at poor Shimelle, they really got her good.

Latest scrapping

Thursday evening was spent at West Kingsdown scrapaholix group.
I did one page at the group and the second at home last night. The great thing is there is still enough left for more LO's.
I really like these papers and love the colours. For a change I thought I would do a page about me, It an old picture pre marriage and children. I loved my car and was very sad to have to get rid of it years latter when having a baby meant we needed space for a car seat and pram. Still I have my beautiful boys now, the second one Oakley being the subject of my second page.
I am looking forward to Monday and meeting up at the Sidcup Scrapaholix group.

Love this

I made this last week but it has been a very hectic time at home right now.

This is a beautiful bird house card box. I made it at Sharons last week and I just love it. I hope to make some as gifts for Christmas.

I am off to Sharons again on Tuesday and I am really looking forward to creating another fantastic project.

Busy Week


This week has been a very busy happy and for me emotional week
Sunday was my little mans 5th Birthday.
He had a fantastic day and was very lucky, getting lots of lovely gifts.


Then as if a Birthday was not exciting enough a way to start your week. Monday was his 1st day at BIG school.
I was well behaved and just about held it together and managed to hide my tears well. I am so proud of my little man.
He looked so very smart and was so brave. He went in very well and came out looking forward to the next day.

Also this Wednesday My baby went back to Pre-School moving up from the starters class to the older childrens class. He was very pleased to find that he has been given his brothers coat peg. Simply things mean so much to little ones.
His day went well and with pre-school in the morning and Tea and Toys at the church in the afternoon he was asleep by 5pm.

I am a very proud Mummy this week, as I am every week but this week has been so very special.
