Out With The Old And In With The New

It's been another busy week here and I can't believe it's almost Friday! I have managed to get some crafty time in between lots of running around. On Monday it was our Scrapaholix day, the kit was Basic Grey Origins and I made this LO which I was really pleased with.
It was loosely inspired by this gorgeous LO that I spotted on UKS the other day. I should explain this picture, on a Tuesday I go to quiz night with Mum, Dad, my bro and my neice. At the pub my neice and I have gotten a little bit addicted to Scampi Fries, there's a bit of an ongoing joke with the landlord about it now, so I just had to document it!
I was especially pleased with this flower, yes, another paper flower added to my repertoire! I was so inspired infact, that I came home and made this with the left overs.
I finally managed to sell a fair bit of the stash that I have been wanting to get rid of so I had a little stash delivery. Some yummy AC Dear Lizzy from Sarah's Cards and a Martha Stewart (or Moira Stewart as Mum calls her!) Butterfly Punch and some more mists from Joanna Sheen. By the way if you are after MS or Cosmic Shimmer, Joanna Sheen is the place to go, they are cheaper there and free postage.....bargain!!
Before I got stuck into the new stuff I wanted to make a dent in my scraps box so I made this LO. A litttle tip, don't try and punch through a layer of paper stuck onto a layer of card, it's virtually impossible (hence the butterflies on the right hand edge of the page!!)
I was desperate to get stuck into my new papers and when I saw this on Kirsty's blog I was so inspired. It is a shameless scraplift but I think it's the ultimate flattery for a scrapbooker!
Also managed to use up some random Thickers.
I'm in school in the morning, I need to give some staff some lessons on our shiny new Craft Robo.

ps. If you don't already, listen to the Chris Evans show tomorrow at 8am, just after the news there is something that guarantees a smile on my face every Friday morning! xx
