Surprise Surprise

me again, unheard of 2 posts in one week :) I just have some LO's to share as - it is so nice having time to scrap. It seems once school kicks in my time just disappears so I am making the most of the last couple of weeks.

Echo Park - Note to Self plus some Stamping - Up Script paper

Summer Vacation

....well part of it is right - it is summer but I haven't been away just been doing other things and yet again have neglected my blog!

I have been scrapping, quite a lot actually.  I have also been reading lots, relaxing and spending time at home. Plus I got unexpectedly hooked on the Olympics - that was a real surprise as I didn't think I would. Its lovely as David is around (school hols) and Dan is doing some shift work till the end of the paralympics so is also at home on somedays and Doug has been working from home a lot, this means we get longer evenings as there is no travelling. 

Here are a couple of LO's, this one was for the circle challenge on CBC

a Royal Visit
Mum found these papers for me - they work so well with these photos that I have been waiting to scrap

Other GOOD news is that David did marvellously well in his exams and got 4 A's - totally amazing I am so very proud, and I have an early birthday pressie of a Kindle Touch, LOVE it read a whole book yesterday now off to order some more.

Picture this

My last couple of weeks in pictures. I know I felt sure I would blog more often but it never happened!
Firstly THIS arrived from the lovely people at The Craftz Boutique. I have used them  couple of times now and each time they were so efficient and so quick. The parcel was wrapped in tissue and labelled beautifully. I now have card stock to match my patterned paper! It took me a while using the Bazzill colour matcher but it was worth it.
I then booked into a daytime crop - its next week actually but decided I wanted some new photos to inspire me, so I started off asking the boys to pose - this was the result!
Doug and I had a lovely day our in Norfolk, breakfast here - Holt
 a walk through Blakeney- watching all the crab fishing
 ending up at Wells for a cream tea
and then onto Sandringham
the weather then turned FABULOUS so we did some of this
 Then this 
 turned into this!!! and I have a VERY full freezer
and finally yesterday good news this happened
I will be back soon with some scrapping - maybe lol
