I know I haven't been that strict with the twist but the papers and photos are predominantly green so I'm happy!
Have just enjoyed a very exciting Grand Prix and am now waiting for one of my Mums famous cream teas...yummmmmm.

I've been on a waiting list for these for 2 months and they finally arrived. They were a total QVC bargain, have used quite a few already and can just tell they are gonna be mega useful.
I plan to have a lie in and blog properly in the morning....lots to share.
Thanks to everyone who left sweet messages about my poorly cousin, we have had the best news today, she is out of hospital. She surprised all the doctors and us by making a super speedy recovery so as you can imagine we are all very relieved and happy, she's our little fighter.
Thats all for now, night xxx

I just love these papers by WRMK, they are so easy to work with and give a great effect.

I especially love the Basic Grey Indian Summer papers, they are gorgeous and I can't wait to use them.
Here is the first layout I did using my August Kit.....

Obviously I haven't felt alot like crafting but I needed something to occupy myself so I made a few cards. I made her this get well card.....
I used a Lola sticker I had, wish I'd had Upsy Daisy (that's her fave!).
I made a few more cards too. This one using the We Are Memory Keepers pad I bought last week......
Also did this one using scraps of BG Lemonade.....

To be honest the paper was so nice I didn't do much to this layout, just enhanced the paper with some stitching, doodling and glossy accents. I wrote on the photo with a Sakura Moonlight pen which worked really well.
With the left overs I made a birthday card for the little man......

Me at Lanhydrock, a beautiful day and a really amazing place.
The view from Padstow, could be somewhere abroad such a gorgeous day and the tide was so far out it felt like you could walk across to Rock. The sandbank looked so clean and untouched I just wanted to run across it!
I did this one with really cute pics of my friends children, using some Jillibean Soup papers.....
I decided that with the left overs of each page kit I'd make a card, so here is the first one....

It was a wicked day, there is so much to see there you could fill several days out. The best bit was that it is free, well all you have to pay for is parking which is £3 and we didn't even have to pay that because of the disabled concessions. We were so lucky with the weather as you can see from the lovely blue sky in this picture......

I was really disappointed by my trip, their stock was really limited, I got a few bits that I wanted but the stock seemed to be really 'Disney' heavy which so ain't my thing! What I did buy was this gorgeous doggy paper from the Basic Grey June Bug collection....
This Doodlebug which isn't really my style but I thought would be cute for some childrens cards..

Rather than just lifting her LO I decided to make a list of the elements of it that I liked and use those. After I'd made the list I didn't look at the LO again, infact I still haven't now so don't know how mine differs! The list of elements I wanted to include were: A border around the edge, notebook edging (IYKWIM), folded paper, journalling tickets and an AC Flair badge (well I have to start using them!). So here's what I came up with......
My Dad doing a handstand on a campsite, wearing white flaired jeans....nice! All I can say is I'm glad I wasn't born yet! I used the, somewhat worryingly, aptly named Mr Campy papers.
That's all for now xx
I used some scraps of Jenni Bowlin papers and a few other bits, plus I made use of my Laura Ashley stamps.

I did a little bit of scrapping, week 2 of the July academy modules over on the gogo CH. Was a bit of a quicky LO mainly using scraps, don't think I cut a single piece of paper doing this one!
I've been dropping in on the party that's happening on www.shimelle.com it's been wicked to look at lots of different peoples blogs, some that I already follow and a few new ones. I've been playing along with the blog trivia quiz and plan to spend tomorrow doing a couple of the challenges. The whole event is mainly about hybrid scrapping and printables but with my unfortunate lack of a printer I can't join in with that aspect, but there are other things I can so have 2 LO's planned for tomorrow.
I'm lacking a little inspiration atm, I seem to be running low on paper (I know it's a first) but there's not really anything out there that grabs my eye. I neeeeeed those CHA releases, I know a few are due very soon but I won't be able to order for a while cos of my hols. Ah well at least it's not long til yellow box time. What did I do without it?

So when I got home I had a parcel waiting for me that I'd been waiting for for what felt like AGES! They were a QVC bargain but the flaw is always the long wait for it to arrive. I went halves with Clare on these but 10 packs of AC Flair badges for £11, we couldn't resist, 5 packs was more than enough each though.
Yesterday I got around to doing this weeks Twisted Sketch, the twist this week is to use flowers which was cool because of my recent Prima stash top up! I loved this pic of Molly and Stella, they both LOVE my brothers garden, I think mainly cos there is enough space to play but no need to go anywhere near each other!
