Been out early this morning to get my nails painted ready for my hols and have a nice relaxing pedicure, except I chose the wrong colour and my beautician, fab that she is, insisted on taking it all off again and painting it with another colour!

P.S. Lots of great sneak peeks of CHA in Chicago this week, over on Becks Fagg's blog here! Be sure to take a box of tissues the drooling over all the new Basic Grey, Sassafrass papers etc could get embarassing!!!

I struggle to get Scrapbook magazine, so I decided to take out a subscription and found one that gives me a free Crafters Companion ulitmate board! I'm not saying I need one, but I can always find a use for one! I have the enveloper and a scoreboard, but not a box making board so this could be useful! I liked the idea in the new Creativity mag I got yesterday, with Christmas things on the cover, that used a whole sheet of the new Papermania acetate to make a see through box!! GOING TO HAVE A GO AT THAT!
Today I have to clear the craft room to make way for the summer holiday packing! I have only just ventured out of bed with my bad back, so I will be in a directing capacity only!!!! I will be sat very still, even on painkillers I'm still in agony! I see a trip to the docs coming on or I wont be going away on holiday!!!
Thanks to everyone who got in touch about my Sailboat yesterday! It is very popular!!! May have to make more!!

I also made a few mini albums using some Dream Street papers journaling tags, combined with some Sei dill blossom papers. What a great size they are and because they are double sided make a fab notebook. This would be great to document a trip or something!
My back is severely hampering me today, not withstanding I am taking strong pain killers. End of term can't come soon enough. Been to the Range with a friend today, stocked up on some more BIA wires and chipboard sheets as well as envelopes and glue and string! I felt like an invalid! Have been making some mini albums as presents for the TA's at work, need to go and make some thankyou cards now! DS1 has finished sixth form for the summer now, DS2 is at Flamingo land for his end of term activity day, in the pouring rain!!! British summer! My sister left for France yesterday for the whole of the summer and I must say I was quite envious! Hoping to manage a trip to her house at some point. Will post some of the other projects I have mentioned over the next few days. Update!!! Just broke my tooth on something in a giant chocolate button!!!! Not my day today! TFLx

You just add photo's bits of journaling and some embellishments and you are good to go! A mini brag book for your handbag, about a great occasion!

I used American Crafts a la carte paper and the stamp was a do crafts stamp I had from a goody bag that I stamped and embossed with clear. I like the idea of this card and suggest you have a go, but remeber the template you print off is not to scale, or you'll end up with a small card!! By pulling the tag at the top, you reveal the greeting in the window.
Studio Calico sneak peeks are up for next months kit! Check out the homepage of the Studio Calico website and see what yummy goodies are to come! It's called confections and I will be away on holiday on release day so unless there are any left on my return, this could be the first time I get no add on kits at all!!!!! Unheard of!! If anyone fancies getting this kit as a one off, or signing up for a subscription leave a comment, as I have one friends and family voucher to e-mail to the first person who would like it! $10.00 off your first purchase has to be worth it!!! Join in the lovliness!!!!!

My finished nappy cake! Just hope she does have a girl now! Will post some pics of it, under construction tomorrow!
P.S. Went to the post office to pick up my parcel (an old Monopoly board off ebay) and quizzed the man about my missing parcel!!! He said it was unlikely to be a missed parcel and that I should be pleased the system worked and it went back to the supplier! He then disappeared and came back with two parcels for me, despite the card not mentioning two! My ink cartridges had come as well. He then shame faced said well that just shows the system has not worked again! Can't get the staff!!!!! What is the world coming to!!!

I was checking Kirsty Wiseman's blog out last night, as I often do, she has one cute little daughter and a cute teeny dog! She was saying she has a screen test for QVC as do-crafts are hoping to put a show on in September! Wow! That would have to be worth tuning in for! I just love Kirsty's work! I hope she gets passed!!! She always makes me smile!
I have, unsucessfully tried to locate the Creativity life magazine that has just come out! And apparently there is a goody box that goes with it, but not been able to locate either!!! Will have to try The Range tonight, as I have to go wait for DS2 to complete his dance class. He had a grade 5 tap exam on Saturday and now has a Grade 4 modern exam next week, so we are out of sync with classes and lifts, so i get to do 45mins regular retail therapy! Just have time to nip to the Range and do a trolley dash!! Lol!! See you later!

These are the large eyelets that arrived today. You have to punch a hole first and then set the eyelet. The gromlet does not require a hole first and is just set straight into the fabric or paper. The big bite came with gromlets, now I have both! I have already used the Big bite this morning, to make an extra hole in DS2 belt on his new school trousers, no problem at all! Check out the ideas in the We R Memory Keepers gallery, for how to use them! TFLx

I have not done any crafting today, went to the school summer fayre, in the pouring rain and we are now in the middle of a thunder storm. Other than that it has just been food shopping! Got my online shop from Tesco, then been to Morrisons to get what Tesco didn't have!!! Had a lovely cup of tea and a Vanilla slice - very unusual for us, but delicious anyhow! TFLx
