Parents birthdays

Once again I'm blogging about how awkward it is having parents with birthdays within a few days of each other.

All I will say is ----- thank gawd for friends and forums LOL

The inspiration for mum's card came from seeing a card that the fab Kerrie made.

And here's dad's card. Competition time on the forum and the theme was Easel cards. Ummm I came first :D Very very happy :)
Stamps: Stampin Up Choo Choo and train track roller. I had great fun doing the train track. Nearly ended up with having them all over my craft room walls LOL
Paper/Ribbon: Stampin Up - can't remember the name of the pack
Card: Stampin Up Kraft, Early Espresso and Brocade Blue
Letters: Sizzix Go Slim

Amy's scrapbook

Well it's been 4 months since my last post. I have no idea where the time has gone --- football, family, work, craft and more football (mighty Spurs qualifying for Champions League woohoo) have kept me very busy.

I can't promise that I'm going to be blogging more regularly as I know that family stuff is going to take priority in the upcoming few months --- but I will try.

Anyway, the project that has been keeping me occupied for the last few months is my niece's 18th scrapbook. I kept saying that I wouldn't have a last minute panic but yep I did. I have to say a huge thank you to Kerrie for giving me a kick when I needed it :o)
Here are some piccies of some of my favourite pages:
Love this paper from Basic Grey

Pretty in Pink

A good friend recently turned 40 and she's a fellow Denami Design stamp fan and Pink so this card kind of made itself :)

Auntie to a 21 year old!!!

One post a month - I'm getting better LOL

I made this mini book for my nephew who turned 21 last month --- how on earth did that happen?!?!?!? It doesn't seem like 2 minutes ago that he was a toddler shouting "Dare" up the stairs LOL

Anyway, I wasn't going to make him anything as he said that he didn't want a handmade card but his mum (my sister) persuaded me to make this. I think he liked the idea of it but didn't like the photos aarrggghhh. Anyway, my sister was pleased with it :o)

Ribbons and plain card stock are Stampin Up. I can't remember who the papers are from but they're ideal for male cards :D

Quickutz Birds

I'd been trying for ages to find the Quickutz bird die. I even resorted to trying to pinch Becky's but we ;o) got caught so I thought I'd never be able to get my own :o( There's only so many times that you can check Ebay and be disappointed. Thankfully, after a crafty weekend away with friends, the fantastic Nikki took up the challenge to find the die and ----- woohoo she did it. She is a genius (((hugs)))

My only problem now is that I have to force myself to NOT use it on every card LOL

Bad blogger

I can't believe that it's been 3 months since I blogged. I've had loads going on at home and doing crazy hours at work that the time's flown by. I have been able to do the important things like crafting, catching up with friends/family and of course going to Spurs matches. Shame about the FA cup defeat to Pompey but we've just beaten Ar5ena1 and Chelski so I'm back to being a happy Spurs fan :D

Anyway, I will try and blog what I've made recently. So watch this space :)
