Happy Birthday George

Just a quick post from me this week to wish my gorgeous, handsome nephew a very happy 15th birthday! Where have the years gone, it doesnt seem like 5 mins since I rushed up to Lewisham hospital for my first cuddle. Luckily I still get a cuddle from time to time.

Hope you have a fab day George, love ya loads and loads.X X X X

A Very Woolie Weekend!

Here you go, another update only a week after the last one, I am getting better at this bloggin lark!! LOL

This weekend just gone was spent with a group of very special friend called the Woolies (with a couple of DH's and younger ones thrown in for good mesaure). We all headed off to Horley near Gatwick to have a weekend of crafting, chatting, eating of cupcakes (thanks so much Sarah) and drinking of wine. It was so good to see everyone again, especially as some of us had not seen each other for a very long time. The obligatory group photo is below. Hope its not too long before we can all get together again, thank you all for a fab weekend.

In between all the eating, drinking and chatting I managed to produce a few layouts, a couple of which are below...

The first one is of Scarlett, the pictures were taken on our trip to Wildwood back in August. The papers I have used are all by Magnolia and the title has been done with American Crafts Thickers, the ric rac was just an oddment from my stash.

The second layout is of my cousin Maria's two daughters, Natalie and Hayley. The picture was taken at Natalies 21st birthday and is the first one I have taken of the girls together since they were little. The papers and embellishments are all by My Minds Eye all that I added extra was a few gems to the centre of the flowers.

Hope you like the layouts and as always thanks for looking,

At Long Last an Update

Finally I have sat down and updated my blog, its something I have been meaning to do for ages but I have just not got round to doing it. So here I am ready to fill you in on whats been going on here.

Things have been pretty busy for us, in September we had two family parties, one for my gorgeous god daughter Natalie Jane Alice Hobbs who was 21 and a surprise one for my Dads 70th birthday. Both do's were fab and it was great to see so many family and friends together. I managed to get loads of pictures so there will be plenty of scrapping for me to do in the coming weeks which is good as I up till this weekend just gone I have not scrapped in weeks. Below are a couple of pictures, one of me and Nat and one of me and my sister with my Dad.

The weekend before last Tom and I headed down to the Celtic Manor in Newport to watch the Ryder Cup. We had a fantastic day and luckily we had hardly any rain at all so we saw a full days golf with no interuption. We managed to get seats in the grandstand on the 6th green where we saw all the players come through. Despite the mud (and boy was there a lot of it - think Glastonbury!!) we had a great day, and to make things even better Team Europe managed to beat the USA so well done to Monty and the boys!!

This weekend just gone was a pretty quiet one, well it was for me. Tom was away at Butlins with the boys so I had a nice weekend at home on my own. My friend Cath came round Friday evening and we played in the PPoC, and over the course of the weekend I managed 5 layouts - woo hoo!! I have uploaded some of them to UKS and for all the Daisy fans out there I have uploaded one of her to here....

Well I think thats about all for now, I promise to try and blog more often and keep you updated with my news and pictures.

TFL, Jane x x
