Over on SBS 16 Sonja organised a secret sister swap for us.... the idea was to send goodies and something you made to your partner. I just received mine and look at the great things I got :-) Stickers, backing papers (a set I've been promising myself for a while and never got round to buying them!) ribbon, glitter, a dreamcatcher, and not to be missed out a SUGAR NELL STAMP which I've wanted for soooooo long :-):-) Then of course there's a beautifully decorated domino with a cute kitty on it and a fabulous handmade notebook.
you should see me... I'm grinning like an idiot lolI'm sooooo thrilled, can't wait to play with them all
My secret sister didn't put her name on the package but with a bit of detective work (blog hopping and postcode tracing lol) I think I figured out who sent it hehe and I want to say a HUGE thank you - its absolutely stunning, I'm thrilled with what you chose for me and the beautiful book and domino you made too. I'm a very very happy bunny - its like my birthday and christmas all rolled into one - but better :-) I also want to say tank you to sonja for taking the time to organise the swap

Well, it took a while but finally got there!! Decided that rather than the usual flowers/chocolates which last 5 minutes I'd go for something they could keep!!! Ended up having to give the teaching assistants a handmade card and a promise of their baskets after the hols as only just managed to get these done in time to take to school - in fact one went with wet glitter glue on hehe!! But they were well received, teachers seemed thrilled with them which is all that matters
Think it would have been better going to school with a jumbo box of tissues - Hazel is devastated as she's finished primary school now and is off to high school in september. She's looking forward to it and is dead excited, but there's only 6 from her primary transferring to the high school she got accepted into as its not a local one, so she's going to lose touch with most of her friends she's known from being 5 poor thing!!! But she wanted to go to a 'better' school lolol she'll soon make new friends!

Also I'd like to know how to 'link' properly to other blogs, so instead of putting in a full email I can just put maybe a name and it highlights and links straight to the blog
Would be great if someone could explain how to do this cos I'm hopeless with the technical stuff

She pinched one of my nellie images (again from ebay hehe) coloured with distress ink for jeans & tunic and some pink & purple ink for the stripy top. everything else is from her stash. She's only 11 so I think she's done a great job with this - and no help from mum!!!
Well, I don't know where the years have gone but my little princess is 9 today, so happy birthday sweetie :-)
These are the cards I made for her..... the first one is from her baby brother Declan, using an image from Sheila (http://www.kippercraft.blogspot.com/) I received as part of the SBS 16 image swap - so thanks Sheila, I love this little guy he's so cute..... and as Laura keeps saying Declan's a little monkey it was perfect
The 2nd one is from mummy and daddy using an hanglar image I bought from ebay and backing paper from my stash
The last one is from Alisha my youngest daughter, image is another ebay one lol from the new tilda flower girl range (I think!) Backing papers were printed out from canon scrapbook and the flowers are made with 2 different size daisy punches, and held together with a gold brad

I was chatting with a girl in one of my yahoo groups last week and asked her how she stamped/coloured her Thomas Kinkade stamped images as I'd had a few problems with mine - turns out that one of my stamps is known for being a s@@@ to get a decent image from lolol Anyway imagine my surprise when just 3 days later an envelope dropped through the letterbox all the way from the USA with a mix of about 12 Kinkade images inside - and only 1 is the same as my stamp!!!!!
Decided to bravely attempt colouring them but wasn't sure if I could do them the justice the artwork deserves - and here's the results so far. The first one, Open Gate is just coloured with cheapo coloured pencils and the second is same cheap pencils but with a 3d glaze over the

Why do people have to be so cruel and go out of their way to hurt people?? I could understand if I'd upset anyone but this is just so horrible. I'm now in a position where I've to watch everything I do or say in my own group!!!!! The person behind it hasn't even got the courage to own up and the group owner says I should go to them over it all not her group - yet she's refusing to tell me who it is but I do have a couple of possibles - after all, there's only 11 in the group so shouldn't be too hard to pinpoint
Going to have to think long and hard over this one but maybe its time just to give it all up...... either bang everything on ebay or maybe just bin the lot and say to hell with it
