Plymouth, UK.

I love to scrap and I love to stitch. I also love reading, eating and the odd glass of red wine! I only wish I had more time to do all the things I love. Most of my time is taken up looking after a couple of other things I love and they are my two gorgeous children Ben and Charlotte. They ARE gorgeous, I am not biased, I have been blessed with beautiful children which is a good thing because I have such wonderful subjects for my scrapbooking addiction.

I am married to Mark and we will celebrate our fifteenth wedding anniversary in July - we are just as happy now as when we first met. He would rather I didn't spend any money on scrapbooking or cross stitch stash but if I didn't do that I would be perfect and surely that would be really boring! Anyway, this blog is a sort of diary / gallery and I enjoy updating my blog for myself and my family but any visitors are welcome :o)

How Exciting.....

I really want to do this blog so I have decided that today is the day that I start it properly!

I have some really exciting news. I mentioned Kirsty's Challenge a couple of posts (and months!!) ago. Well I did do another entry for the challenge and guess what? It has been chosen to be one of the 4 that will be published in The Scrapbook Magazine along with the winning layout. I am so chuffed :) I won't put a picture here but when it is published I will let you see what it is like. I feel like a proper scrapbooker now lol.

We had some friends over on Sunday afternoon and we took all the kids to the park. I got some lovely pictures of Ben so I did a nice layout on Monday.

Last night the football was on. I don't mind football but I wasn't in the mood last night and I had a blank coaster book and some gorgeous pictures from our recent holiday (May) in Alicante that I wanted to do something with so I sat and made a little book instead. I am really pleased with this. The lush papers are Anna Griffin from a TSV on QVC, they are gorgeous and made me a cute little holiday album.

Ben and Charlotte have been really good today, they are currently at the kitchen table making things with play doh (well the Early Learning Centre version). I have been dreading half term as they were being really naughty before hand but it hasn't been bad at all, in fact they are being little angels. Poor Charlotte banged her nose on the handle of her little trampoline about an hour ago and it is still looking a bit red. Funny that 'cos yesterday she said she wanted the be a clown!

Now for something else exciting! I have got a school reunion party on Saturday night near my Mum's house. I can't believe that it has been 20 years! I am soooo excited about seeing everyone. I have spoken to a couple of people on the phone and over email and it is just going to be so great. I have got a nice dress to wear but I need to sort out the rest of the outfit - I am going into town with my Mum and sister on Saturday afternoon to get the finishing touches - I hope I am not leaving it too late. I am absolutely gutted that I had my long hair cut into a bob last year - grrrr! I just couldn't cope with long hair AND two toddlers lol.
