Sun was out and so were we...

It was not a day to stay inside far... far.. too hot,it was a day for fun,ice creams and sunshine so we took the boys to the local park and baked for a couple of hours while they became shipmates on the pirate ship and invaded the castle. This is one of the shots I managed to take.It will be going in to the family album with a new layout, along with a few others I took. Thankfully I stayed behind the camera this time (phew)

Enjoy the sun it may be all we get this year !

I gotta wear shades.......

Grandaughter Pheobe is growing up too quicky can you believe it she's nine months old now and doesn't she look the cool babe lol while out on a trip to the park with her mum, I can see her becoming a fashion victim before the year is out.

Hope your all having a lovely bank holiday weekend.

a week of holidays and relaxation (I wish )
Its the week to gut the house of all the junk we have collected
I'm decluttering ( oh heck )
but the house drastically needs it
I'm being taken over by things I know I don't need lol.

Here's another card for a boy
I just love this frog and I found some froggy backing paper Ive had for ages
so thought Id use it along with some papers from SU

what a wednesday....

Only a couple of days to go and it will be another holiday week
(where did the time go )
I'm trying to get as much done as I can so we can get some family time together.
The boys have been given black bags to clear their room of junk
(I think a few more bags will be needed yet lol)
Boys will be boys
While thinking of the boys
I've had to make a few boys cards lately.
I love this SU Paper and bright colours
I found some fishy sponge stickers in my stash to go with it.

My moms been at it again..

With her knitting and crotchet
She's having to make another one of these for Pheobe as this one went in for a raffle
I managed to nab a photo of this before she went off to a fundraiser
at her friends Bob and Mags.

Throughout the day over £1000 was raised for a cancer charity
with money still coming in
Her cakes and preserves went down well too
(as she never came back with any for me)

Oh my where have I been....

Touring the insides of a computer and only just coming up for air it seems its taken far longer to get back up and running than I thought it would and wonder if it will end so I've done as much as I can now so hopefully I can catch up on loads that Ive missed
Phew...
I did receive loads of goodies in the post while I was AWOL
and
here's what I did with one of the the PTI sets

I'm off to see what more wonders the postie brought
and
get down to some yummy crafting.

Well almost.....

I am amazed at what junk I collected on my other computer and Im still filtering through it all and filing it ( thats good for me)
I havent got my photo editing suite on yet so cant upload any pics but with good luck and a bit of time you'll all be able to see what Ive been up to.

Im nearly there ...

The new computer is in and working
( dont ask it was touch and go at who would win me or the computer I think I have )
Now is the hard task of tranferring all stuff I do want to keep and not the junk that I ve collected. Ive had craft deliveries that have sat on the side patiently waiting to be played with so While Im off next week they will have all my attention and I can get back to some peace and serenity in the shed
Have a Happy weekend all

Still searching ......

For that illusive computer and its looking more and more likely we are going to have one built from scratch (arghhhh what have I let myself in for) yes it may be cheaper in the long run but it means Im having to brush up on myMB, GB, RAM,memory and processor knowledge ( so I dont have to do this again for a long time I hope lol).
I just hope it will all be worth it at the end and it wont die on me like this one is at the moment (after five minutes checking emails grrrrrr)
Catch you soon

I'm taking some time to be with family (making the most of the bank holiday )and on the look out for a new computer as this one is doing its own thing now (quite scary)
So I just want to say a huge thankyou to all who have popped by lately and I'll have some new stuff to show you in the week
Will be back very soon (crossed fingers)
Oh and Josh wants his own craft area now the sheds just not big enough it seems lol
