American Adventure !

Hi all,

Hope your well.
Its been nearly 2 weeks since we got back from Florida but I still feel as if I'm chasing my tail !

It was great, we had a wonderful time. The parks were fantastic - I wish we had ones like that over here.

The villa we stayed in was amazing, quite central too. Hoping to go back with a few more couples next year which I'm counting down to.. hehe





I did manage to pop into Michaels towards the end of the holiday but because I treated myself to more than I probably should have while we were shopping, I had to set a budget lol! [See stash below]

I could have spent the whole day there but didn't think it was fair to expect my friends to endure that !



Can't wait to use that Hello Kitty die, been after one for a while :)



And just as we got back our good friends Lisa and Dave welcomed their beautiful baby boy into the world! Congrats guys!

I can't wait to go see him, I've made the new mummy and daddy some birth announcement cards (see below) which were very easy and fun to make. Hopefully I'll get a chance to post a tutorial on this (I keep saying this but I will get round to it!!)






I've also got really into the little punch animals that I've seen videos of on Youtube. You should check them out if you haven't already, and I sent this card off as part of a swap. The sheep are so cute, I love it! Hope you like it too. (Please excuse my messy work area!)



So that's all from me for today, think I need another holiday, phew :)

Thanks for stopping by,
take care
