ickle bit of crafting

Over on Bubbly Funk we had a Cyber Crop a couple of weeks ago. I printed/saved all the projects, but have only had chance to make one up to now - and that's only because I needed it for a pressie.

this is a little gift bag - instructions very kindly provided by Sue (thanx)

I mucked it up a little bit and therefore it's smaller than it should be - but it worked ok coz it's only got a small pressie in it!

I fully intend to make other things from the crop and will let you see them when I eventually have a go!

Snowy's got a Radley (well a handbag!!)

anyone who knows our family will know that Snowy is our dog. She was a rescue dog and we have had her for just over 2 years. and she is thoroughly spoilt rotten!!

Altho she has her own toy box full, in fact overflowing, with toys, Carl decided she had to have a new one. and here it is:
not quite a Radley - but almost!!!

she was obviously getting ready to go out - coz she also like a drink:

weekend away

Last weekend, Daniel and I went away for the weekend (and left Carl and Snowy at home!)
we went on a bus trip to CadburyWorld (mmmmm chocolate!!), and then a safari park on the Sunday.
We had a great time and altho it was abit strange without Carl, it was nice to have a mother/son weekend.
here are a couple of pictures from the safari park, including the white lions, white tigers, a giraffe licking dew from the top of a jeep and some 'rude' turtles!! (Daniel said I had to put the last one on!!)

oh yes, and one of my 'grown up' son!!

OMG!!! - how long is it since I blogged!!! I can't possibly share everything I've done since June!!! so just a few photos and an 'ickle bit of info!

Our summer hols this year consisted of a week at Carl's mam and dad's caravan at Haltwhistle - the reasons for this is that Carl's holidays and Daniel's holiday activities clashed!! We had a great time tho and had a few days out - one of which was at Bowness on Windermere in the Lake District and here's a couple of photos of 'my family' from there

Nail Art

In July I completed a Nail Art course and the slide show below shows some examples of my 'handywork'

Eventually I will work out how to move it to the side of my blog and I will try to remember to update it whenever I do my nails
