Missing in Action

It's been so long since I posted on my little blog, it has been quite neglected! I have been busy doing this and that and suddenly a whole month has nearly passed by!  This weekend I will be at the Scrapagogo Getaway in Hertforshire with my friend Linzi, we are so looking forward to chilling out and having a laugh.

Sadly the Getaway means we will miss spending Halloween with our other friend Jo and we usually go round to her house with the kids, play games and go trick or treating so I have made a little card and gift for her.

Its all girly, pink and blingy!

A little gift tag and a bag to be filled with sweets.

The papers and image are from Pink Petticoat and the ribbons and gems are from my stash.

We have also had a special birthday with our little boy turning 7, so this card was for him from his big bro.

The papers and image are from Pink Petticoat again and I have used my cuttlebug to emboss some stars and cut them out and added faux stitching and buttons.

The little guy is also a huge Lego fan and as he was getting the Lego castle for his birthday, I made this card from hubby and I. The images are from the Lego website and I cut out some characters and stitched round the edge of the card.

He had a joint party with two other friends and we booked out a whole cinema screen to watch Marmaduke. I was in charge of making party bags ......60 of them!

Appart from that, I have also been trying some baking..

And have been making some homemade soups which the whole family loves, definately need more of this now it is getting colder!

I look forward to catching up with you all soon and showing my makes from Scrapagogo. Have a great weekend and Happy Halloween!

Baby Baby!

You may remember in June this year I became a first time Auntie to two precious Nephews called Freddie and Lewis. Well I am now also proud Auntie to my new little neice Grace who was born when I was at Ally Pally last weekend! I didn't think anything would top the excitment of Ally Pally but that definately did!

We all went for cuddles last Saturday and were are all very excited and arguing over who was going to get the first hold! Of course we bought the pink baby clothes, pink champagne, cuddly toy etc and I even picked up a pink baby scrapbook kit from Ally Pally too.

I made a card. I saw a similar one on Angela's blog with the boy version of these Zoe Pearne papers. Angela's cards are amazing!

I then got a bit carried away and made a little coaster album for my sis in law so that she could put a few photos of her precious bundle inside. I used some glittered thickies on the front for her name.

Yummy papers!

Some ribbons, hearts and flowers as embelishments.

I added a few ribbons for decoration and then as I had some paper left over and was still tickled pink to have a new neice, I made another mini album but a different style.

There also tags inside where she can write little notes, like Grace's birth weight etc.

Looking forward to lots more cuddles with my neice and nephews in the future! Thanks for taking the time to read this post!
