*Tip toes in very quietly*

How is a girl to get any work done when somebody else just wants to just "be with you". My 12 year old baby just keeping his mum company!

Some cards that I did to thank my Stampers 6 group for their orders last month!
Am I forgiven now that I've given you photos LOL?
Life has been suuuuuppppppeeeerrrrr busy!
Scrappers Paradise is this weekend and I am really looking forward to it. We have such a lovely group of ladies who have become regulars and I am really looking forward to catching up with them again. For the first time ever, I am actually organised and ready to go - classes done and all sorted out!
We have had a phenomenal response to Stamp With us! Are you joining us on May 1st? In the next couple of days you'll see an example of what you can expect from the on-line classes. We have had a great response to the weekly challenges too - why don't you join in or have a look? There is some fantastic creations on Mr Linky!
I have done several classes both scrapbooking and card making classes which I've really enjoyed and next week is very very busy for me. I come back from Paradise and then I have Monday night to recover but I have a SU party on Tuesday, another one on Wednesday and then a class on Thursday. Friday - I pass out LOL! I love it though :)
But a very busy week this week has mean't that I am really tired now and together with the fact that I've got Paradise on Friday, I'm going to have an early night tonight - I'm not sure quite how much sleep I am going to get over the weekend.
Have fun and I will be back as soon as I can!

Well what a two weeks it's been! Phew!

So I've had one class, two Stampin' Up parties, a new SU! Mini Catalogue launch. SU! field training and oh, just the little thing of

Just slightly busy then LOL! That's not including my "proper" job and being both a wife and mother too thrown into that lot too - it;s been a whirlwind!

So, in a whirlwind rundown.....the class was great - as usual - Crazy for Cupcakes was used and here are some of the cards that we made:

The SU parties / workshops were fun - some hardcore SU fans came and loved what the new catalogue brings us. Who doesn't want those oval punches?

Field training was great - always good to catch up with a bunch of ladies who just get "it!"

We always do a swap of cards / card fronts when we go to these type of events. Now for the first time ever, I didn't want to stress myself out with extra jobs to do with everything else going on, so I didn't sign up. Then I felt guilty! :) So last minute, I thought if I gave everyone chocolate, they might forgive me for not doing a card! So this is what everyone got from me:

The flower is from the new Petal Pizzaz set stamped in Regal Rose and the sentiment is from the Friendship Circles set stamped in Chocolate Chip of course!

Here are the Make and Take's that we made using the Forest Friends set which includes this tree, Bambi, Thumper and the Wise Old Owl :). I love this set and think it is great for all sorts of things!

I was also a very good upline and made a book for my downline to make notes in the meeting all personalised with Sweet always papers, Flower Fusion flowers (best felt flowers ever!), brads from the Hodgepodge Kit and chipboard letters coloured with my *new* marker pens and the White Doodling pen. I can't believe that the chipboard retained the proper ink colour (didn't discolour!) and there were no streaky colouring in marks either - they were great!

So.......Stamp With Us went live on Wednesday and we have launched the Challenges, the on-line class and the retreat in our first three days - what are you waiting for, get over here to find out more information! It's very very exciting!

Right well that has been the last two weeks in a nutshell. Now we are all up to date, I'll see if I can update a little bit more often - I'm hoping things will be calming down a little now :)

Have fun and enjoy the weekend!
