Is life so darn hectic....

Monday housework and washing, Tuesday went to Ipswich to have my feet pampered at the Scholl shop and then on to Lakeland to spend vouchers I got for Christmas. Stocked up on lots of essentials plus a few treats, some border stamps, new ink pads and loads of glitter oh and a tidy tray! after the fiasco of spilling glitter all over my keyboard LOL. Wednesday I spent the day designing 50th wedding anniversary invites for Mum and Dad's party, but haven't started to make them yet and also prepped some LO's for crop on Saturday. I don't know about everyone else but if I don't have work prepped I would just sit and chat all day and eat cake!.

So today Dawn and I have had our scrap day, the one day of the week when I get to chill out USUALLY.... but today all 4 dogs have a tummy bug so in between clearing up Rulu's throwing up session and letting dogs out and wiping muddy paws it was less chilled than usual.

Scrapped some photo's of Ben from his 2nd birthday last month. Used a sketch I spotted on Sharons blog site using a sketch from UKS RickRack Ravers. First time I've worked with a sketch and really loved it. Made the title on the craft robo and then glazed it and used my new border stamp around the photo's. Quite pleased with the result.

Tomorrow I have my cousin coming over as she is just getting into scrapping and wants some tips and then Vikki is bringing her car over in the afternoon so Eric can do a pre MOT check.

Jim is well on the road to recovery and the vets are so pleased with the healing, and acknowledge it's really down to Eric changing his dressings daily and keeping the wounds clean.

I've finished the AB's for chest infection today and do feel a lot better.

Oh and finally found time to play with my BIA Eric got me for Christmas, figured out how to use it all by myself LOL and made a notepad. Couldn't set eyelets with my crop a dile which was really upsetting but Eric is going to try and make some extra leverage for it. Still checking out camera's as the Nikon D40 was beyond my physical capabilities, looking at the Olympus SP-560UZ now.

So apart from all the usual jobs on my "TO DO LIST" I must do my CJ entry next week for the DC Sixers, I have Cath's journal here "The year you were born" some beautiful work in it, so thinking cap on..... and I have to start the invites and so it goes on.....

WOW Sue, the layout is brilliant!
i love the vibrancy of the papers and colours used - perfect for a little boy's page.

It really is a versatile sketch, i can see me using it again too.
