Stop the press......i am scrapping

I have been playing with the silhouette machine. Its been dusted off and lifted out of the box after 3 years. New software has been down loaded, and the blog has been browsed within an inch of its life.

So i have all these little bits that have been cut so some of them have been applied to a LO. Can you believe it, my second LO this year, lol. Hopefully it will be finished tomorrow as i am having a play weekend

I have to show you these pics of Rebecca, now 11wks. Excuse DH hair, he so needs a hair cut, lol

I think i will use the middle one tomorrow, so cute.

Playing with glitze girls for Simply Create

So i have finally finished with my last kit from Jacqui at Simply Create I have been tinkering with this project in between nappies and milk!!!!! But finally finished.

This Hearts and Home as i call it shadow box was originally a GRAZE health food box. I used a few of my own stamps, Tim and stampin up plus a maya road little chippie house. The rest is from the kit.

I love how it turned out. Good job i have lots of graze boxes as i want to make another and mum now wants one, lol

So this is my one aim for 2011. I want to learn to sew. I want to make frilly little dresses for the babe, just like my nan and mum made for me. So this year the sewing machine will actually be used for sewing and not just scrapbooking!!!

So for bubbly scrumptious this week i made a LO showing this aim. You can find all the details HERE. I have shown you how to turn some chipboard mini albums into embellishments and how to create your own background papers using digital images. Head on over for a look.

Sent from heaven on the wings of a prayer.

So this week for bubbly scrumptious i created a little keepsake album as a birthday gift for my aunty who has yet to see the baby. You will have to forgive all the baby projects but we have waited so long for a baby girl in our family and she was such i surprise, so i think we have earned bragging rights, lol

Happy New Year

I cant believe its January 1st 2011. Where did that year go. This time last year i was sat here worrying about completing my dissertation and graduating from university and looking forward to the summer. Who'd have thought i'd be sat here writting this one handed with a 7 week old baby sat on my knee,lol.

So this year i am making no resolutions as life has a habit of throwing curve balls at you when you least expect them. If i find the time to go to the gym, so be it. If i loose some weigh, so be it. If we save up for a holiday, so be it. But i guarentee, we will make lots of new memories this year.

Big thanks go to all my friends and family for supporting me over the last year, for spurring me on when i was at my lowest with uni work and all the pregnancy issues. I couldnt have done it without you.

And big thanks to Keith, my DH for being my rock, my shoulder to cry on, my wall to shout at.

And thanks to my boys for being my little helpers in the last few months

And the biggest surprise of 2010

Just fallen asleep whilst i have been typing

So a happy 2011 to you all and happy crafting.

Here is a quick digi LO i never in a million years thought id be making this time last year, lol
