OMG... It's April Already!!!

I don't know where time is going at the moment... it's just slipping by so fast!
As mentioned in my last post I was working on a couple of layouts for the boys A-Z albums from last year... I will complete them... only 3 more letters to go... YAY!!!
Here is letter 'X' for eXtreme... I have some journalling to add but not sure whether to pop it around the edge of the photo's or on the back at the moment! The boys loved this ride so much they went on it 6 times... these were the photo's from the first time round and I think their little faces say it all :P
Ok... so the day before Mother's Day I paid a visit to ST (Samuel Taylors) to get a few bits for some Mother's Day Cards as I was feeling a little uninspired and we all know what some new goodies can do to your mojo! Whilst there I popped in to see the lovely LPD's (Leeds Paper Dolls) who were believe it or not actually 'QUIET' (hehe), had a bit of a catch up and chat... was lovely to see everyone again and asked if would be ok to rejoin them for some crops as was missing them all and the 'ME' time I seem to have lost somewhere in the last 6months or so, with all the changes going on around this place... I was over the moon when the lovely Kirsty said It would be lovely to have me there again :) and with the next one being the day after my trip to Cadbury's World it would be rude not to take a big bar of choccie with me :))
After a browse round the shop, I selected some Forever Friends Decoupage, some of the lovely new Daisy & Dandelion Decoupage (1 of each set), a ribbon punch by X-cut... HisLordShip arrived when I was eyeing up the new Woodware Fingerguard Trimmer I had seen all the LPD's (such a bad influence on soeone with no willpower :P) using... last one on the shelf so he grabbed it for me from my boys as a Mother's Day gift (just need to get the rest of the blades on my next visit :P)
Here are the Mother's Day cards I created for HisLordShip's mum... the first one is using a free download from DoCrafts and the papers are from the sets I bought, you'll have to excuse the pictures as I scanned them but they didn't turn out that well :(, the other 2 are from the Decoupage sets!

I had made all 6 of the Forever Friends decoupage images into cards but before I could snap some pic's they were bought up and carted away :o Was really pleased though as i've not really been into making cards so much since I started Scrapbooking!
Here are a few more I've made with the Daisy & Dandelion range of Decoupage... hope you like them!

This one was created as a Good Luck card and managed to fit it in with a Challenge for so really pleased with it!

I have some more decoupage images ready to pop onto cards and 2 more cards that just need a little something to finish them off so will be back with more creations soon :)
