I'm all alone .......

on my 2nd wedding anniversary ;-( as my hubby is in hospital having his tonsils removed. So what's a girl to do but craft, ye ha. Managed to get a few scrapbook pages finished, but I'm trying to stay awake for QVC's craft day which starts in 40 mins as I've been advised that their TSV is exceptional quality, thanks Kath. Well it's really hard to believe but Trevor and I have been married 2 years, I can remember the day like it was yesterday, and boy did we have a brilliant day. Here are a couple of pics for you, my hair is no longer dark, and I got it all cut of last Tuesday, its hard to get use to short hair again after so many years. Hope you are all keeping well and that this cold weather is not bothering you to much. See ya soon, Karen xoxo

A wee quickie

My neighbour ran across last night asking me to make a wedding card "no problem, when for?" her reply was "10 minutes!" Oh my word me standing in my pj's slumming myself watching The Bill so this was my Just Married card made in 10 minutes. I used my new Jasmine cartridge for the cricut to cut out the words in holographic paper and the shadow in red. Used a large punch for the heart and some DCWV paper and ribbon. The lower stripped paper is glittered but you can't see it very well in the photograph. Ah well I like the way it turned out and my neighbour was delighted with it, just hope the happy couple were impressed. Of work today, so my plan is to have a filled soda, yummy, as breakfast, turn on the radio and get my downstairs dusted and hovered before I lift Joe from school at 2pm. He has football practice today after school and with my hubby being a massive Tottenham fan guess what kit Joe got, no not spurs (didn't like the colours) he went for Liverpool ......... nothing to do with the team or anything, he like the colour and their crest on the shirts, oh if life was so simple wouldn't it be great!!!!

Summer 2008

Well of the summer that we did have, I managed to take a few pictures and put into this scrapbook page. The papers are from DCWV it was a TSV on QVC 3 storage system and mum and I opted to go for the 3 seasons package. These papers are from the summer collection and we are impatiently waiting for their christmas collection.

7 years and look at the difference

Well although its been quite a while since I posted on here, I have been busy and here are some of the things that I have been up to. Clearing out my garage and computer room as the builders start the extension in a couple of weeks (fingers crossed) and I came across some old photos of Kelsey in her P1 class. So out came the 12 x 12 and her and I made a scrapbook page, its not finished yet as we are going to put all the names of the other kids in the photo, just can't remember them all ..... old age me thinks. The last picture is Kelsey on her 1st day at Ballymena Academy, how proud I am of her and yes I did cry when I see my wee girl all grown up ready to embrace what life holds for her.

Schools Back

Happy days are here again, kids went back to school last week, and now my house has returned to a normal habitable state, well kind off :-) Joe is only staying in to 12:20pm for the next 2 weeks so if I have to do anything kids free, I need to be quick. Kelsey started her new school and on her second day she fell and cut the leg clean open, only my daughter could do that.

So 1 more week then Joe is in until 2pm and I will have more time on my hands to craft, is it to early to start the party now?

Anyway I am going to try and complete at least one challenge this week and maybe make a few more scrapbook pages with the 100's of pictures that I have found.

Speak to you all real soon, Karen
