The time has finally come...

and I'm soooo excited!

We fly out to Florida in the morning, for two fabulous, sun and shopping filled weeks :)

I will no doubt be eyeing up all the American craft goodies and promise to share photos with you once I'm back!

Last week me and my dad decided to take Paddy to the woods, he loved it and I managed to get some great photos so will leave you with these until I return.

Thanks for stopping by,
take care

And some exciting news from Stampin' Up!

If your a scrapbooker and have ever thought about becoming a SU! demo then we have the perfect starter kit designed just for you ! Offer ends 1 June so contact me for more info. And at a reduced price there really isn't anything to lose :o)

Also this month when you buy 3 packs of patterned papers you get a fourth pack free! The papers can be any of the ones in the main catalogue, the mini catalogue and while stocks last the ones on the retired list too so get choosing!

And for those of you who haven't yet visited the Stamp With Us challenge blog pop over there and check what all the fuss is about!

The first live chat and challenge went love on Tuesday night and I was thrilled to be able to take part. It was great to be able to have a live chat with so many people that I otherwise wouldn't have had the opportunity to 'meet' - hello girls!!

We were all sent a small envelope and told not to open until the launch, then at 8pm the challenge went up and we were told to open the envelope and create - but in 45 minutes!!!

So here's my attempt:

and it was surprisingly easy! I was panicking a bit beforehand because I like to be organised and know what I'm doing so I can plan ahead - it was definitely a challenge but so much fun.

Then it was time for the second challenge, which was a recipe and again only had 45 minutes!

Here's my 2nd attempt:

I had a bit of a moment when I couldn't remember where I had put my heat gun and was running around like a mad woman!

I would recommend it to everyone!

I'm hoping to get some more crafting done soon but since my mum has come back from Dubai I've been spending most of my time with her having a gossip, wine and some retail therapy!

Hope you enjoy your bank holiday weekend!
