5 Days to go...... (I'm not counting) lol









Only 5 days to go………

And I’ll be off to see the world! Well Europe at least! Lol. I’ve had such a huge week. My Nan passed away on Monday so I’ve spent most of the week in Hervey Bay with my family. She was only 70 too and it came as a total shock. She had a wonderful life though. Nine kids, 35 grand children and 6 great grand children! And she always sent every one a card for their birthdays and knew every one’s birthday I think that that’s amazing!

Well to cheer me up Carole & I again had a mammoth scrapping session over the weekend and got heaps done! It’s amazing how therapeutic I find Scrapbooking! I think Josh now understands it’s a package deal, with Lauren comes Scrapbooking!!!

I haven’t done the blog rounds in a couple of days so I’ll be trying to catch up over the next couple of days as I’ll be without internet from the 25th May till about the 2nd June. As my internet runs on the CDMA network and it’ll cost a small fortune to use it over seas so I’ll have to wait till I get to London to sort out a new internet provider.

Okie dokie, these are the pages I did over the weekend. May have been inspired by most of you ladies.

BEAUTIFUL: I used Urban Lily papers and hand cut out the white swirl that was on the black! (What an effort that was it took me ages!) I glittered all of it and then added some flowers. The faint flowers you can see have been created by with a pin! (Yes I had a sore finder after doing that! Lol)

CHERISH: I love this page Carole gave me these Heidi Swapp letters and I love them so much, a little hand stitching add some flowers and presto! A page. (between you and me I think I’m addicted to hand stitching! ROFL!!!)

DIVA: After Chris Millar did a page for me I just loved her idea and ran with it. I love this page as it’s so simple & it wasn’t quick it took me all of Big Brother last night to cut out the flowers!

FRIENDS: More hand stitching! I love the title now that I have finished it but, boy oh boy mu fingers were sore after hand stitching it! The big ugly flower on the side was a moment of madness! They are chipboard ones I have covered and added the swirls!

LAUREN AT 22: This is paper left over from the May Lime Tarts Kit: I wanted to list what I am at 22! The photo is not so great I’m actually reading the paper. I didn’t realise Josh had take it until I plugged in the camera. ( I accidentally spelt my name wrong when doing this page and didn’t realise till Josh pointed it out to me! Oh it was a huge joke at the time Josh thought it was just hilarious! I fixed it up real quick!)

Enjoy you day ladies!
