Yipppeee ... Bank Holiday!!!!!!!

Well i have been up at the crack of dawn to get my CPD sent of to the Institute for Learning so that i didn't get struck off for missing the deadline!

With that done the next job on the list is have a grand sort out... where do you start!! i have so much junk in the craft room and more pressingly in the wardrobe... must get rid of stuff i don't use / don't ware then there would be room to store the stuff i do!

oh well i might just play with paper all day. i have finished off a couple of pages this morning...

this one used the Thickers given to me but the lovely Steph xxxx (much love and gratitude to you Steph) and i cut the "Cherish " with the new Slice.

This double page is based on a club kit design by Karen and is my cousins dog Christmas Last Year...such a well behaved animal

Been Playing

Well all was well at the dentist, had the filling that fell out replaced. I had the tooth filled without any injection, it was ok as I had previously had the nerve removed! Back in a couple of weeks for another one.

Have had a little play with the new toy and have made a little tool box to put the bits and bobs in.

A Couple of Layouts... and Cake!!!!!

The perfect combo, craft and cake!

work was so slow today, the day just seemed to last forever! so to alleviate the boredom the boss and I went scrumping.... well she picked the apples and I stood a way back a safe distance from the wasps! So home from work to make Blueberry and Apple muffins, apple and Cinnamon muffins and blueberry and chocolate muffins... yummmm!

also finished off a couple of pages tonight (one that you cant see yet as is for the Indigo mill September kits... what a tease) and one that i started at the weekend.

On this page i have used the new toy I had for birthday... The Melting Pot... I coated a metal alpha with blue embossing powder for the enamel effect. this page is made with papers from an old kit (April in fact! I got told off for having an untouched kit from so far back lol!!!)

As i cant show you the other one, here is one i did at the weekend with bits from the June kit. i was half way through this page when i realised that it was a boy doggy and pink paper! But with the help of a few blue embellishments i think it will pass for a not so butch doggy!

by for now xx

I managed to get a few layouts completed and i promise i will post on here very soon but if you cant wait then you can see some of them over here on the new Indigo Mill blog ( i am pleased that we have gone back to blogger, i couldn't work the other one very well LOL)

And another one ....

Lazy Day no 2

Well yesterday i was very spoiled with loads of fab pressies from my fantastic hubby (fantastic when he is behaving himself anyway!!)
Not sure how i feel about birthdays, they don't seem to be as fun as they used to be and I always feel a bit sad and miss Dad. Sounds silly I know, but just opening a card from Mum and it not being from Mum and Dad makes me sad.

I did have a fab day, hubby took my out to lunch yesterday and I had flowers, chocies, jewellery, smellies and new craft tools to play with... what more could a girl want!! so today i have been having a go with the new toy ... a melting pot!!!.... just made a mess so far LOL so put to one side to do a lay out with some of the Indigo Mill stock Steph sent me. the Ruby Rock-it papers are SO beautiful both the vintage beauty and the kindred spirit ranges as so easy to work with, pop over to the shop and grab some while they're still in stock, you know you want to !!!

So I thought I would continue the birthday and have a lazy day today and play with paper x
