Yesterday was spent in Papercraft studio for a PINK charity day. Managed to finish my two LO's for my Scottish word album so that is me ready for the next page. Not like me to be up-to-date, hurrah.
I also managed my BOO for Halloween but will post that tomorrow. Having been shopping to Inverness today I really should go and get the school uniform sorted and homework assistance is required. I hope everyone is having a good Sunday.

There is only so much Chitty Chitty Bang Bang one person can take!! My youngest is mad about the film at the moment and combines Truely Scrumptious with You two and a little Old Bamboo with Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, still the childcatcher is a god send in explaining to stay close to mummy when out and about. (Even if they expect him to have a big nose and a horse and cart!)

Anyway onto first attempt at my Bella stock!

Bella stamps appear to be one of the many latest crazy's hitting here in crafting. Stamping is officially back! (And who says things go full circle!)

Still I do think there is something trend and a bit funky about the new stamps.......happy crafting to all out there.

Forgive me for I have sinned, it has been nearly a week since my last post.
As if I care!!
On Friday night last week my eldest boy decided to have an accident with a basket ball and a pal, ending up with a trip to A & E and a fractured little finger on his right hand. He was a very brave soldier and had his first x-ray. Bless. Must remember to take a picture whilst it is black and blue to scrapbook the event. So question for you?
Does that make us scrapbookers' cruel? Always wanting to take pictures!
Saturday was spent at Papercraft's in Elgin teaching 2 classes which I believe the ladies enjoyed, I did anyway.
On Sunday we headed to Gordonstoun to watch the other half play hockey, boy our team had new talent and very yummy too. (Might have to watch more often now!)
The Moray team won as well, yippee 6-1.
Whilst the game was on my eldest went conker hunting and came back with a bag full for school. Some traditions are passed down the generations but I do believe that now the "Conker fight" in the playground is no more, health and safety, guess goggles and protective headwear would be required today!

After starting my mum and dads Ruby wedding purse at the Aberdeen crop on Sunday gone, I've finally got it finished. I've kept it simple as my parents aren't gushy, but am happy with the result. I have kept one side with their original wedding photos, digitally touched up and the other side more recent with the whole family on.

I really enjoyed going through to the Aberdeen crop with my mate Pam and catching up with everyone there, plus topping up with cakes and card, a great day all round.

Better get to the shop, Papercrafts in Elgin, this afternoon and start preparing for my two card classes on Saturday.
I did the same thing last Saturday and had a lovely bunch of ladies, another enjoyable crafting day.
My hubby is bound to catch on to all this weekend craft time soon so better make the most of it!!

Morning all,

Whilst robo'ing last night for my class on Saturday I decided to put one of my Scottish journal pages together, only two more to do now and I'll be up to date just in time for next months new word.

Bosie: to cuddle to your chest.

The picture is of DS2 at Kirkcudbright on holiday only four weeks old. Why do they grow so quick, I loved my little cuddles, still do when I can get them.

It is one of the ladies at the local shop birthday soon and this is for her, my brief being name, age and mad on bingo! Another one ticked off the list.

Got my new curtains for the dinning room made up and hung yesterday and even had enough left for a table runner, the room has been finished for nearly a year so it hasn't taken me long to get my bum in gear!

Having a few friends over tomorrow for an Usbourne book party so better go and now make the house look presentable, not that it will last long with the boys. Still it will be nice to catch up with folk for a natter. I have promised a job lot of muffins so I must get cracking.

Taking a break this afternoon to pop to Karen's and sort kits for Saturday, busy later in the week. Hopefully I will get them all sorted and be back in time to get the boys from school.

Morning, morning and once again morning. It is dreich outside today so guess I've got an appointment to keep with the housework. Yippee, NOT!

Still managed to rattle off a couple of orders this morning so that's one job ticked off the list.

DS2 is sat as we speak in the office next to me having found my daubers, inking a lovely picture and breaking the dauber. Better crack on before any real damage occurs!

Well today I have mostly been updating stock, although I still have a couple of personal orders. As we are out to a friends BBQ this afternoon to celebrate their sons 1st birthday, I thought I better make a quick card. Looks as if the weather is improving so it may even be nice when we get there. Let's hope the boys behave themselves but more importantly have lots of fun.
Oh I nearly forgot, a big thank you going out to Dawn on UKS for the lovely ribbons.

It's official I'm now an Usbourne book rep, thanks Pam, I think, for introducing me. I look forwards to lots of lovely books arriving next week, my first order being Christmas presents for me. It makes a change for me to start early!
I gave Mabel her tin and some flowers, at long last, last night and she loved them, so I was happy about that. She has been the families surrogate Granny for the last 10 years and hopefully she will keep in touch.
Today I am mostly going to be sorting my Vintage Christmas class for Papercraft's in Elgin for the 22nd of September.
Happy crafting out there!!

A friend in the village had asked me to make her a card for her son's 18th and that he was into Chemistry, the trusty Robo and good old UKS saved the day.
She also asked me to do one for her parents
with photos of her son as a younger child, I definitely prefer that card as I was left to my own devices!

Also today I have been and got my passport pictures sorted ready for my renewal and the trip to Holland for Scrapaganza in November. I'm so excited and I just can't hide it!

I think after tea I'm going to add some more beads to my charm bracelet.
Tracy I think I'm starting to get the jewelry bug too!

It seems like ages since I've updated my blog but the Funky kits team have been busy. Yesterday was our Christmas demo day at Papercraft's. Both Tracy (Bramwell demonstrator) and I had some lovely new Christmas products to play with all day. Karen was also kept very busy.

I have taken pictures of the work we did to be released soon on the Funky Kits site and then later on here.

Whilst at Papercraft's yesterday my husband took the boys to the Airshow at Lossie. A great day was had by all and when the official photographer asked for pictures of my smallest in his flying suit my other half agreed. I shall look forwards to scrapping those! We WILL get copies.

I was in such a craft mojo when I got home I took out my Kay and Co jewelry kit and made a charm bracelet of my boys and niece. Thanks Karen I really enjoyed making it and think I may be looking for some more to make into Christmas pressies this year!

Finally on a sad note today marks the 1st and 12th anniversary of the Nimrod crashes. Our thoughts are with the families at this time. The guys may be gone but not forgotten.
