Scrapping

Had a lovely day with Dawn yesterday scrapping and finished this layout of Ben with Elmo.


Vikki had been saying for ages she wanted a bike, so Eric bought a second hand one and done it up for and gave it to her this week as an early birthday present, she squealed so loud our ears hurt LOL. Now she can go for rides with Ben. Her bike is called Daisy apparently and she has of course a purple helmut LOL.


The nice weather continues and makes for a much easier life with the dogs happy to play outside or sunbathe.

ACTION GIRL

Yesterday I had a lovely ride out on the bike, watched Eric ride, he was jumping. Took some video's as he wanted to see how he looked and what needs correcting then he carried on with Guinness through the woods and I went on David. I was concerned as to how I would get on but actually managed ok with very little help from Eric. I picked up the reigns and Tara who lead me said you've ridden before haven't you LOL mind you not since I was 14 LOL, I had such a strong urge to gently kick David and go myself if only. Not sore today thought I would be.

Here is Eric with Guinness




me on the bike

and on David.


This layout has been in the making for a year. Last April I took a photo of the willow tree in our freont garde, then each month took another. Really pleased with it.



Our friend Bim was has had a stroke but has just come home (still can't walk r use arm) was saying she's fed up with visitors moaning about her two greyhounds, Joe and Mini are adorable and so quiet and gentle so I've made her this for her birthday next month LOL. It's printed onto canvass then I've mounted it onto several layers of thick card..

Mojo had his consultation in the back of the volvo with Tom his vet last night LOL. his heart rate was 150 - 180 which shows you how bad it is but overall Tom was happy  with him, still not sure how the old devil is still alive and running LOL. Just carry on with with current meds.

Gangley is having good and bad days but is still happy and the rest of te pack are happier now tey can spend more time outside.

Actually had a photo taken with my son on Mothers Day, have to scrap this LOL

Cards

so here is a few of the cards I have designed. After printing they are then decorated with glitter or bling here you're seeing them naked LOL.
















I sell them for £1.00 each and all the proceeds goes to greyhound gaps kennel fund.

For my Mum


Who yet  again has had to remind me to blog! life with 8 dogs is always full on and doesn't leave much spare time. I've also been very busy making cards to sell to start this years coast to coast walking fund.

A layout I recently finished, each year I ask Ben the same questions around his birthday, thought it would be fun to look back at the changes as he grows up.



Got thorouhly spoilt on Mother's Day and went out for a meal, photo of my son and me!

 

 The weather has been unseasonably mild, such a relief after all the rain we had! So today I went on Eric's new bike for a ride


 then watched him having his riding lesson.

 Dogs are thoroughly enjoying the sunshine and no mud! Gangley has good days and the wobbly days but is happy in herself.

Will try to remember to take photo's of the cards I've made, all digital and CHEAP LOL.

SUNSHINE

Yes we have had wall to wall sunshine for several days and Sunday the temperature rose to an unbeliavable 18 degrees, of course the hounds made the most of it and sunbathed LOL. Garden has actually begun to dry out from months of rain.

had a lovely time at Bramford crop and actually finished the last two layouts of my 2013 album

Although Twizzle is only a year older than Belle she is definitely Mummy and takes care of little Belle, washes her, cuddles up to her night time to keeps her warm and plays with her, they are rarely apart.


Well I had to record the Christmas wipe out didn't I, it's mostly digital with a few bits decoupaged and the title and bling added.

Hounds are all well and happy, although Gangley has become much frailer, so sad and really upsets us seeing her struggle but then just as you think that's it she perks up and has a good spell. Really hoping she can enjoy another summer.

Scrapping

Friday Dawn and I scrapped and I did this layout of me, Eric and 8 of the 9 hounds. After taking the photo of the finished layout I spotted a mistake in the journaling that will need fixing grrrr


and yesterday it was crop and I did this layout of me and Ben counting down for the Christmas lights to be switched on. I love this page that Vanessa from  papermaze crop designed and will be doing it again for sure.

Which leaves just 2 more layouts to do to finish 2013 album. I am a little behind LOL.

We've just had two days of glorious sunshine and no rain, what a treat the hounds even got to play outside and soak up sun sunshine.

Eric recently got another motorbike (think that's number 9- but only two on the road LOL) since I had my knee replaced in 2008 I couldn't manage to ride on the back of his GPZ as it's a racing style and left my knee at a painful angle HOWEVER on this new one I have a proper seat and foot plate and it's so comfy. I gave my leathers away but luckily hung on to my helmet, boots and gloves and my sister kindly lent me her gear to wear. Can't wait for some warmer days to go out and about on it. Eric has always said bikes are for riding not polishing but he has turned into a polisher with all that chrome. So going to have to document that LOL.

Half Term

and Ben came for the day.

We made cakes




relaxed (whilst I did the washing up).....he used to love washing up  but not anymore apparently!


and crafted.
 Ben worked out how to make the roof and then found a punch to cut out paper for the tiles

 and as you see Ben was rather pleased with the house he made LOL.

Then he wondered if we could go outside and play football....................
NO Nanny was shattered.

Super day!
