new puppy!!

We received a text message from our friends Billy and Jeanie at the beginning of the week, asking us if we wanted to go and meet the new addition to their family. Now I knew it wasn't a baby, and I don't think they're cat people, so it could only be one other thing..........

this is Daisy!!! an 8 week old Westie puppy!! and isn't she gorgeous!! (she makes our Snowy look HUGE!!, in fact she's smaller than some of Snowy's toys!!)

thought Rosie might like to see these piccies, as I'm sure it will bring back memories of 'baby' Maisie!

going away to Scarborough tomorrow for the weekend, so will hopefully remember to take some photos and also to blog them!!

new baby!!

My nephew and his wife have had a baby boy!! they live in Macclesfield so I haven't seen him 'in the flesh' yet, but have seen loads of photos.
My parents were going to visit this weekend, so I decided to make my first scrapbook page, and frame it for them. I also did a card for them.

My nephew is mad on Star Wars, so I bet you can't guess what they have called their son!
yes, you're right - may I present to you: LUKE XANDER SNOWBALL!! (and yes, Snowball IS their surname!)

My mum phoned tonight, and said he is as gorgeous in real life, I feel a trip to Macclesfield coming on very soon!!

crafty stuff

my crafty 'mojo' is slowly returning, in small bursts!
I decided I would do a scrap book, and got as far as making the front cover, and some blank pages to go inside:

I chose the photos I wanted to scrap and put them on a disc to take to my local 'Klick' shop. (my printer isn't clever enough to get decent prints!). put them on the machine in the shop and 'faffed' about with them, then printed them! and nearly died when I saw how big they had printed (7" x 5"). my scrap book is only 8x8!! I then learned that they have new machines in Klick that printed bigger, as well as the older ones. I was too embarrassed to do them again in a smaller size! I'll go to Asda next week instead!
I also made a birthday card for my pal that I've known since first school. Haven't seen her for years, but still keep in regular contact. I am going to make a point of going to visit her this year!
altho I say my 'mojo' has returned, it has only returned in limited quantities! I have discovered 'blooms', and all my cards seem to have a VERY similar theme at the mo!! never mind,I'm sure it will return properly soon

Junior crafters

Over on the Bubbly Funk forum, they get up to all sorts of stuff!! some I join in and most I don't! However, in October last year, it was decided to hold a Junior CJ, for the children of us bubblies to take part in (I am NEVER enrolling Daniel in anything else - kicks up the bum needed EVERY month!)

Anyway, the finished/completed article arrived a couple of weeks ago, and we are really pleased with it! these kids are really talented! here are the pictures of Daniel's CJ called 'My Favourite Holiday!
