Final LO's

I've got a bit more decoration to go on this page...I was thinking a few musical notes! Here is my final 2page Frinton LO, i just added the yellow shells to mix in the 2 pages
And The Big Toddle finished with a vellum poem (the friend on in the blog FAO ME)

And my new LO I did today!
I love it! Unfortunatly its NOT a 2 page, which will ruin my album but i'm sure i can work round that!
I love the play on 'Tu Tu Beautiful' just soooooooooo perfect I feel!
It was also my last Creative Memories class today. I've booked in for a few workshops and going over for an event on 13th November (I think). Its sad, coz I liked KNOWING each week I was going to do a LO, now I just have to sort of work alone! Ahhhhhh scary!

100 posts!

I just realised that NTA post was my 100th post!


NTA's 2008

We has such a good day, although long and cold!
We arrived at the RAH at 11.30 to get good spots on the red carpet.
We cheered when they were laying the red carpet! lol
I even got to take some home! (only coz I chatted nicely to the red carpet man, and thought it would be cool in a scrap book!!!)
I got over 25 autographs, not that I know who half of them are from!
But got Ned from Neighbours and Mark from Ugly Betty!!!!!! :o)
(of course they are better than Louis Walsh! LOL)

We sat 2 rows in front of Anton from Stictly Come Dancing, who was over joyed at the show winnng over X-Factor. He was also with Nick from DIY SOS, Myleen Class and Gethin Jones (excuse spellings!)
Paris Hilton was also there and OMG is she something else! She presented the award then her and her ITV2 people left, but they weren't really paying much attention TBH.

Credit Crunh Halloween! LOL

Halloween 2007
(S5, I2)
Halloween 2006
(S4, I1)

So after the last post I decided to find the other halloween pictures of my babies...
We've used the same costumes for the last 3 years! Oh how they change in them though!!!

Halloween comes early!

My babies and I went Trick or Treating tonight.
We've done it early because I like doing it at 'home' where we know who's door we're knocking on, and today was the only day we're free this we pre warned everyone and went of about 6o'clock after the skys opened up!!
HUGE thunder storns and a few miles away SNOW!!!!
We got a good lot of sweets and didn't get too wet, although VERY cold!
And the facepaint DID come off!!!!

All in a line!

I hope this is a littler clear.
The left side are the biggest and right ones small!

My babies...

Were carved today! :o(
We had 9 pumpkins, smallest top right and biggest bottom left!

If you can't be nice...

Then please don't waste my time leaving rude comments that will only be deleted!

I have appologised to the members of UKS that I upset with a perious post. Yes I could change it, but I'm not.
I realise that apologies aren't always good enough for some people, but they can choose not to read my posts, or my blog.

Ideas for Christmas

A friend of mine makes wonderful items...go have a look!

FAO me!!!

Sorry posting this here as I have no where else to save it and need to remember it for later

Let your heart sing its' own happy song...
And soon the whole world will be singing.
and more;
Kids dance before they learn that everything isn't music

There are short-cuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them

Of course I have an Attitude, I'm a Dancer

TuTu Beautiful
last one;
Dont walk in front of me, i may not follow.
Dont walk behind me , i may not lead.
Just walk beside me and be my friend
These are for page LOs but I can't save to word as I'm out of space on laptop

The Big Toddle

So here are the 2 new LOs i've done today at my Creative memories Course.
The littlest I look after I3 did the Big Toddle at Colchester Zoo and wanted to use the Picture she drew of us and Big Todd and also the left over sticker.
So colours were pre-chosen by using the sticker. As unusual as they are I feel it works!
I'm happy with it!
BTW if you are wondering why I haven't done any of S6 its becaue i'm working on I3s album first!

Also on the left hand page there is a blank space I was going to carry the feet through on it. But remembered when sat on a friends look she has a wonderful poem on the wall
Dont walk in front of me, i may not follow
Dont walk behind me , i may not lead
Just walk beside me and be my friend
Felt it was quiet fitting! :o)

Christmas stocking

My sister and I haven't had stockings at Christmas for, 10years or so, ok granted we are 26 & 24 but that it NOT the point. When did Christmas stop being fun?

So this year I have decided to do her lots of stocking presents, and made my own stocking for her!

I could just brought a stocking, but I thought in true fashion I should make her one! (we never buy cards for each other we make them...and they are usually naff and hand drawn on a bit of paper)

Its just a Tesco Value pillow case and some Woolworths 29p tinsle and a 'Merry Christmas' also from Woolworths for 29p!!!

Just hoping it puts a smile on her face!!!

I promise I am NOT advoiding doing the ironing!


A VERY good reason to NOT read UKS!!!!

5 minute Chocolate mug cake!

4 tablespoons flour

4 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons cocoa

1 egg

3 tablespoons milk

3 tablespoons oil

3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)

a small splash of vanilla extract

1 large coffee mug

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1 000 watts. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.

*Personally I found my choc chips fell to the bottom and it was a little dry, but one to do with the kids who'd eat it with ice cream...where as i'm too fussy to eat with ice cream!

More new stash and new LO

The 1st picture is something we had to do today on the course. Its made out of circle and heart punches...we all made different ones, but don't feel its the sort of thing I could use on a page, although one lady made a really lovely LO that I will take a pic of next week!

2nd picture is of my new LO which will work along with the 'Frinton' one...I felt it needed another colour on it, so used the yellow, which is in I3s swim suit.

I think it needs something else, but i'm doing some shells next week I think...

Then the next lot is my new stash..he he he! So naughty!

I have large and small sticker letters, vellum 'family' expressions, precision point glue pen, Titletopia and a multipurpose tool and clips!!!!
