I've been browsing the wonderful world of bloggindom and come across a few Blogs offering Blog Candy and as always... It's nice to share the information with all who visit my little blog :)

Here is the first link
It's a wonderful blog with loads of inspiration!

Here is another
This one is also a bit of a challenge!

Here is another
Another fantastic blog with lots of inspiration!

Well... I think these should keep you all happy for a wee while :P
I really need to make a start on the cards I need for Wednesday morning... I made a big mistake this morning, left a bottle of Sansodor with the lid off and it was knocked over :(... so now I have to re-do some images i'd stamped and coloured... it's so not my day today!

New Layout!!!

Well... here is the new layout that I promised I would post... but life gets in the way sometimes and I was at my crop Saturday, then Natbag & I did a bit of shopping down at Crown Point, then she dropped me with my friend and my boys, we walked back to my friends and had some tea, then boys played on the trampoline until around 10pm, and home by 10:30pm... so a late night for me as boys are usually in bed by 9pm at latest on the weekend, evil mummy I am... Hehe! I need to get them a trampoline but it would take the whole of my back garden... so am a little unsure but would be nice for the boys to be able to have something outside to do on an evening after school... hmmmm... decisions!

I didn't like the first attempt so decided to re-do the whole thing!
It's a scraplift of one of SugarAlmond's layouts of her gorgeous little boys :)

Yes... tis Moi! Just 4yrs ago... lord how time changes us! I really need to lose the excess weight i've gained in the last 4yrs but as much as I try it just won't shift :(

The Quote was from a site that Mwahhhhh!! posted on her blog... so thank-you very much Laura as I was stumped as to what to pop next to the photo, seeing the Quote also brought the title to mind too... I like how things just fall together :)

Well... that's all i've completed so far... but hopefully get some more done soon! At the moment i'm working on my Passport Challenge for GOGO-GETAWAY... yes i'm going and I just cannot wait... my first time away since I was 18yrs old and it's an early birthday treat to myself and with it being the big 30 this year I felt I deserved a treat, along with another the weekend after my actual birthday in July, a weekend with the Leeds Paper Dolls in Cumbria, perfect for me as I love the Coutryside... I felt rather guilty too about going away by myself for 2 weekends and my boys being left behind, and seeing as though they hadn't had a real family holiday I decided to book a weeks holiday in Cumbria for end of July to beginning August for them, my friend and her daughter... Ohhhh I have so much to look forward to :)
I am so pleased with myself these last couple of years as I have done so much that I wouldn't have dreamt of doing before... ohhhh here's to the future and what it will bring... maybe a house move, which would be just perfect for personal reasons... hehe!

Oh well... have to go do some tidying and more organising of craft supplies... need a bigger house just for all that :P

Inspiration Needed!!!

I've been doing a lot of blog hopping, seeing loads of lovely cards and was wondering where do you all get your inspiration and what are these challenges mentioned, where are the sites?

If you'd like to leave me links to the challenge blogs I would be most grateful as I am so lacking motivation and inspiration but that could be due to my neighbour keeping me up until 5am this morning due to her partying in the back garden and that I can hear everything through the walls... I'm actually struggling to keep my eyes open whilst typing this... bath and early to bed for me tonight so I'm refreshed for the LPD Crop tomorrow, which reminds me I need to bake a batch of choc chip buns, as requested by Rach (Reward ) & Nats (Natbag) before I jump in the bath!

I've not really done anything crafty these last few days... think i'm up to date with all the stamped images I said i'd do, but if I do owe anyone please do let me know! I did have to re-do the layout I was doing that I promised i'd post as I hated the first attempt, but hopefully tomorrow evening I shall post the new one, still not 100% keen on it but i'm not doing it over again!

Well... until tomorrow evening, I'll bid you all goodnight xxx

More Blog Candy!

Blog hopping again for a little while... mostly reading as my hands are feeling very tight again today, but wanted to let everyone know about some more blog candy I found on Kitty's Blog... a chance to win a Bella stamp and a few other goodies :)

Here is the link...

Have had a nice day yesterday whilst the sun was shining... after picking boys up from TaeKwando my friend and her little boy came to visit, we did a bit of shopping, McDonald's for Lunch, sat outside in the sun with a drink of juice whilst all 3 boys sat playing with cars rolling down the steps and crashing... it's amazing how the little things keep them laughing!

Today has been nice and relaxing... quite a lazy day really... nice long soak in bath for me this morning whilst boys kept themselves occupied with one on the Wii downstairs and other watching a film in their bedroom! Now to think about Dinner... don't feel like cooking but suppose I better before they start wasting away! :P

Ok... so I have been playing with some stamped images some lovely ladies from UKS sent me in return for some of my stamped images... kinda loving this swapping as I get to play with images I don't have but would love to get eventually!

Here are a few cards I whipped together today... kinda last minute as usual with me! They are a bit plain and simple but I will hopefully get better with practice... yeah right she says :P

Well i'm off to my bed now... but will be spending some time blog hopping tomorrow, so hope you have lots of inspiration for me :)
