Ok so it has been a while since I was last on here! I have been feeling a little low lately, and just havent been able to write anything interesting thats going on! I think my hormones have taken over my entire body and have been contoling me!!!!- Arrrrggggghhhh bloody things!!! I think they must be like lil aliens in my body telling me to be a grumpy cow, or screaming banshee, or a howling baby- why do these things take so much contol over me???????? Had some tests done at the docs and it looks like I have PSOS, but it is strange as I have 2ce as many periods as normal and usually you have less with PCOS - I am telling you its the hormones!!!!!!!!
OK Rant over!!!!
I have not been doing much scrapping the last few weeks, but have been sewing lil tree decorations as lil pressies. I have also been making lil buttons out of fimo- lil gingerbread ones- they are sooo cute (even if I do say so myself!!)
Here is the class I taught at the MODSCRAPS crop
It is birthday month in our house Evans was yesterday, then Aerons on the 23rd- and all I can think about is presents and parties!!!
We went to the ss great britain a few weeks back and I think I must have just walked round with the camera infront of my face!! Here are some pics!!
Right I am going to call it a night

Talk about a hectic week!! Jamews had the week off work so we finallly switcvhed the boys bedrooms around!!! It took all week as they both had to be decorated!! But they looookk FAB!!! i am so pleased with them and so are the boys. Aeron and Evan have been playing so wel together with their toys and Calann finallly got his hamster!!! It is lovely to see them so keen in keeping their rooms nice!! James built a fantasic shelving unit for the boys toys will post a pic soon. I made some tiebacks but I cant find any D rings anywhere- any ideas??
I am putting together the advent swap pressies for someone- i just hope she will like it all!! This is such a good idea as I dont get many presseis for xmas and its nice to get something from people who "get" scrapbooking!!!
Anyway back to it

We had a fab time last night at a friend Ruths who put on a fantastic fireworks party, although I didnt get to see many as Evan was quite scared!!! She had a FANTASTIC spread of food, there was something for everyone!!! The boys had a fab time pinching sausages and pieces of salami!! Evan was rather tired and stropy at times while we were there!! So we left around 10 and they fell asleep in the back of the car!!
Oh I have been meaning to put up this months scrapstudios dt stuff on here
This layout is about my friend Sarah- she is into scrapbooking too!! She had been saying for ages that she needed some photos for her layouts and I said I could take a couple of her. So as she came around I spotted these beautiful leaves in the lane next to my house and took some photos there. Amazingly her top matched the whole scene!!!
I was so pleased with all the buttons that came with this kit- I just had to put them to good use!!
Annonymous- sorry I didnt see that thread!! So are you sending to me?? hmm I will have to be a good girl now!!

But something that I have just noticed Does Calann look like he is hanging from the tree??? He is meant to be climbing it!!! Let me know if you think I need to rearange it!
My online class is with Mandy, but she e-mailed me and said she been ill, but I am sure she will post it up on her website as soon as she can!

I had a bottle of Leau d issey- love this perfume!! A memory card reader- I have wanted one of these for ages!! A digital photography book - I am really loving photography atm , and a design basics book - its for graphic designers but there are a lot of cross overs in there which could be related to scrapbooking!!! A wooden coffin with a ghost drawn on it!!! (calann has been doing some wood work, and made this for me to hang on the wall- it even has a hook!!!) oh and not forgetting my green and blacks chocolates!!
I have a hectic day ahead I am looking after my friends 3 boys so the will be 6 boys in my house ages ranging from 2-10 OMG lets see how that pans out!!!! Anyway have a good day!!

This was Calann by the entrance posing for me and for once he has a normal look on his face rather than his normal cheesy grin!!!Evan did his normal grumpy stropy toddler thang!!! and kept sulking at every opportunity.
I saw such lovely colours thereincluding this sand box which I photographed whilst everyone was kinda looking at me as if to say 'WHY'!!- But I am sure that you will appreciate it!!
I could have taken hundreds of photo yesterday but I ran out of memorycard.

Noodles (my lil kitten) has got his last jabs today, so at lastt he will be able to go out soon- he has desperately been trying to escape lately!! I am a little concerned about him though as I have found a lump on his back- Going to ask the vet to check it out for us today!! I hope he is ok- even if he is a devil cat - I now have to sit with a water spray next to me so he doesnt bite me!!!

Went out today with James the boys and another childminded child and walked with them for about 6 MILES!!!!!! it took us about 5 hours. There was an open door day in Bristol which you could visit parts of the city that would not usually be open to the public. So we walked around the redcliffe caves (an underground network of caves that was once used for smuggling) I have wanted to do that for years so I was really pleased to have finally have done it. W e then went to the museum then just walked to various site in Bristol. Whilst walking I bumped into Ellie (Modscraps owner) and we talked about me teaching a class at the next crop!!
I have been planning my scrapcamp classes too- I am really excited about these!!!!:D I have been having a play with tecniques to incorpoate texture into my classes....
Right have to sort house out:(
