Owl Occasions

Evening all, hope you are well.

I am hoping I haven't shown you todays cards before as they aren't the ones I'd planned to show you but I was home too late to get a decent picture so this is a 'one I made earlier version' lol. Colours are Real Red and Island Indigo and the stamps are mainly from the very useful Owl Occasions set.....

Short and sweet tonight as I have had one of those days. Didn't start well as we all overslept as the alarm didn't go off -  no actually Hubby didn't set the alarm !!! It's like a military operation in the mornings and everyone has their own shower, hairdryer slot etc so the fact that we didn't start til after Hubby should have been on his way to work caused chaos !
Have now explained to him that he can set his phone alarm to come on every day (or even just weekdays) without having to set it EVERY night !    Thought I was bad with technology !

Christmas Organiser

Saturday again, and only 40 something days til Christmas , or so my girls keep telling me.

December is always hectic in our house as as well as all the Christmas related activities and school plays etc , they also BOTH celebrate their birthday ! I know what you are thinking, that wasn't very well planned and my mind was obviously elsewhere ,but in my defence we were expecting arrivals in November and January but one was early and one was late !!! Anyway I wouldn't change my ' special Christmas presents'  but it does mean I need to be organised and have already done quite a bit of my Christmas shopping.

Todays project is perfect for those needing a bit of help getting organised.........

We made this at my class on Wednesday and all the ladies seemed to be pleased with it. I have popped mine in the post as a little thank you gift for a friend so I hope she likes it too !

I will include one of these planners with all orders over £50 (before postage) during the month of November so contact me at to place an order and request your organiser.

Does anyone have a planner that works out how much I need to save ready for the year that the girls are 18 and 21 in the same fortnight as Christmas too lol ? Better start now !

Halloween Layout

Brrrrr it was a chilly one here this morning ! Back to the school run and ice on the car ! Still later on there was some gorgeous sunshine and a perfect blue sky- - looked lovely as long as you were inside in the warm lol.

Todays project is an 8x8 scrapbook page. Whilst at the Stampin Up Convention in Germany Jules arranged a challenge for the team members that didnt go so I decided to join in, although the others were so good I nearly didnt enter mine............

This was a Halloween themed floral arrangement I had made previously, can you just see the little ghost peeking out and the ribbon bats ?
Got to get my use out of the Googly Ghouls set !  I know I always say it but I must do more scrapbooking because I do enjoy it and the 8x8 size is much quicker. I even looked at the catalogue again today to check out the albums in this size ! I showed my girls the page and was told Halloween was 'very last week ' lol ! Forgot it's Bonfire Night tonight so if you are off out -  Follow the Firework Code !!! Keep safe x
