I havent checked everyones out yet, but I dare say I've gone for the safe bet. Its the only chance I've had today to sort this out, so its a bit of a wierd picture actually!!! Its dark but I really like how it focused in on the tea bags! lol weirdo I know.
Here's some notebooks I've altered for the fair - of course using my Amy Butler papers
I'm in a pickle and dont know whether to do it or not!!! - I read Anso blog (glitter adventure), she is doing a Christmas Journal through an online class run by Shimelle.
I'm really into my crafting so much more now and I would love to document our Christmases, and this feels like a perfect way (and its free after this go year after year).
I've already made my journal, I just need to decide whether I want/need some guidance to fill it or do it alone - I'll keep you posted!
I won a BAD GIRLS RAK for my advent box - yes me - who wins nowt - won - hehehehe.
Thank you soooo much girlies. xxxx

I dont think my camera and the lighting (really dull here today) do these beautiful vibrant colours justice. The buttons really set the colours off too - I love it love it love it hehe
Number Two -
I couldnt bare to cut up this paper cause guess what, I love it... hence I used it for the whole card base, I cut out an extra flower to layer and give a little depth, ribbon and ribbon buckle and a papermania dome sticker - this will wing its way to one of my best friends, as its her birthday next week - oooh so's mine - hehehehe...
Another commissioned card -
I used my Basic Grey Dasher pp and made a lubbly jubbly crumpled distressed layered chrimbo tree. This will be popped in the post tomorrow with the rest.
Over at Papertake Challenge they want to see a card with a chrimbo tree, so here you go girlies.
Just want to do an ickle ~wave~ to Amanda, hope your alright girlie x
And ~wave~ to Cazz whos been chrimbo shopping in Toys r Us today! I would like to say that I've just remembered - again - that you kissed my shoe on Saturday night, cause they are so lubbly - Mad woman... Love ya hehe x
The photos a bit dark because it was about midnight when I took it!!!! lol
Products used are a bevelled canvas painted with acrylic blues and a metallic white, my favourite photo in the world of my boys (makes me feel so proud when I look at it!), 'pals' is from the Bohemia collection, chipboard button painted metallic white, rub ons, hamley transparency and ribbon from stash.
Actually I got the ribbon last night from Hobbycraft and whilst there, I purchased one of each of the utterly gorgeous Amy Butler PP, wow, they really are gorgeous and glittery and girlie, cant wait to play with those.
Right this canvas is now going to be very protected as its going to be heading parents way for chrimbo pressie (they dont have a computer so wont be reading this!) Hope they like it.

Christmas Joy by Anna Louise Bowkis
Products used were Basic Grey - Dasher - Snowfall Cranberry & Popcorn Balls PP. Rusty Pickle flourish chipboard & Making Memories alpha chipboard - both enamel embossed.
I loved doing this class, I love how simple but effective the LO is as a whole, thank you so much Anna for sharing this with us.
Christmas Memories by Bonnie
Products used were chipboard book, Fancy pants - Beautify PP, green cardstock & rub ons from stash.
Again I really enjoyed this class, I used up supplies I already had, so the book is smaller than the class stated but will still do the job.
I'm going to get Jack (and some additions from Riley and us of course) to add a page to this book all throughout christmas time, I cant wait to see the treasured finished product.
More soon x

As I've said on previous posts, the bad girls have been doing a christmas challenge, this is one of them from the amazingly talented Tracie.
Sadly though due to no internet and not sketching this beforehand, I did it a tad wrong, the boxes were suppose to be layered in three's and I've done it in six!!! Oh well, it still works.
I used Basic Grey - Dasher pp, snowflakes from stash and a crumpled chrimbo tree of course.
I love it though and cant wait to fill with mini mini mini treats hehehe, this is certainly going to get preserved and used every year.
Back tomorrow with more crafting pics
All okay here though, I've been walking into town lots - my fitness regime - lol
Night night for now x

I felt so bad as we use to do so much craft stuff at home anyway, I rushed out to buy him some, hence above, and to this day, hes never bloody used them, cause there rubbish!!! lol
Products used were blue bazzil cardstock, basic grey romani pp, felt butterfly, transparency and doodling.
Products used were metallic blue cardstock, the never ending Sassafras - Serendipity pp, more felt butterflies and a 'smile' button which I purchased from Tracie H, along with a few other goodies. Tracie is a real inspiration and has some of the most gorgeous LOs I've ever seen, shes also part of the BAD GIRLS design team.
I'm going to use this card for our slimming world consultant Karen, shes been running her group for one year, so tonight is party night, just to thank her for been so inspiring and making group fun.
Typically though I never go out, and myself, Terry and our friends Cazz and Mark are all off to Nandos for a mexican meal and then we're going to hit the town!!! I'll probably be found asleep somewhere about 10 oclock - lol.
My parents are coming down to babysit so I can relax abit more (I dont have babysitters - except for Cazz - as I dont trust anyone with my boys!) and me and Terry might make a night of it and stay out somewhere, while we have the opportunity, why not - hehehe.

Stood for about two hours doing the ironing! Rileys been a good little fella bless him - although I can hear him fidgeting in bed right now.
Had a yummy scrummy indian takeaway this evening, chicken tikka masala, poppadoms & naan bread - the works - not very slimming world friendly - but I have been good the rest of the day - lol.
Right thats it for me, no SPS for HS-MS, couldnt think of anything other than the norm and thats too boring, esp considering I havent bothered doing anything with my hair all day!!!
Ps AM GUTTED Andy got kicked off the X-Factor, bye bye Andy...

Theres nothing more disturbing than putting the baby to sleep and the bloody phone ringing!!!
Today has been a mixture of feelings:
Riley had his hospital apppointment this morning, I waited an hour! for a 2 minute consulation of 'His scan was normal, we'll discharge him now' !!!
It was then my last group session of the PND variety, so there are a few mixed bag of feelings going around my head at the moment, accompanied by a migraine - great.
Jack then received another praise postcard and stood in assembly with his friend Jake to show his beavers certificate,necker and toggle.
Then I had to drive him to his dads!! Another story altogether!
To then come home to Tel still poorly and whos now in bed as he is working all weekend.
I have plans tomorrow though - and hopefully I am going to fulfill them, so watch this space.

Anxious ~ Whether the word anxious defines that you are worried or eagerThe only anxiety in this family is 'me', I worry about 'everything' and I mean 'everything'!
I've said before that I currently attend a group for PND, which has helped so much, but it does make me more anxious talking about it and realising what I am going through - but most certainly not alone. (I like how the photo turned out pretty grey actually, because thats what PND is to me - a grey feeling)
