November Kit from CCW

I love this kit and all of the colours.  I needed a break from all the christmas crafts we have been up, I feel like I have been knee deep in wrapping paper, glue and glitter!

This is of my eldest daughter Chloe taken at our local park xx

What a busy few weeks we have had I cant believe christmas in only 3 sleeps away, what is the man in red going to bring this year?

I have some crafty christmas pressies on the go at the moment, I made a hanging for my boss shown below and I have made some cookie jars form the CCW inspiration will update with some pictures tomorrow as they are not quite ready.

I have other good news I entered the Scrapbook Magazine Scrapbooker of the year competition and came runner which was a bit of a shock as only entered on a bit of a whim I didnt actually think I would get anywhere.  I'm still waiting to recieve the magazine which the layouts have been published in I think it maybe stuck in Christmas post.

Well hopefully may get some scrapping done in between wrapping, cooking and keeping the kids occupied  xx

No crafting

What a terrible week it has been for crafting! I have been so busy with work, orgnanishing patomine trip, christmas nativity with 20 preschool kids and chrismas displays.  My girls have been super busy as well and to top it off hubby has been away, so all in all not alot of craftyness has been done.  Hopefully something may get done tonight, although there is a huge pile of ironing calling my name!!

Christmas Inspiration

The countdown on the CCW website has inspired me to do some festive decor of my own, I have created this wall hanging for the festive period to replace my home sweet home one which hangs in my hallway.  I dont want to put it away so it will stay up in the utility until the 1st of December xx

I received the new scrap 365 magazine and there are details in there on how to make the flowers, I think they suit the style of the layout and finish it off.

These are the products that I used:
I'm not sure who the paper is by, I found it in my patterned paper scraps box. 
BoBunny "a gift of love" St Nick cut outs
Cosmo Cricket letters
Anna Griffin Card crafting kit - Holly branch
Tim Holtz die - Tattered florals
Gold stamp pad
Cream Acrylic paint

Hope you like it xxx

What a completly pants couple of days I have had.  Firstly the car starts making some very strange noise which get worse as i'm driving along the bypass I nearly cry as it feels like its just going to breakdown on me but I manage to get home.  I take it down to the garage they say they will give me a ring when they have chance to look at it, 20 min later I get the dreaded phone call............engines knackered!!!   Secondly camera decides not to work so that has been sent off for repair not sure what is wrong with it at the moment and then thirdly my slow cooker get a big crack in the pot and now I cant use it anymore.  I hope next week will be better, hopefully may win the lottery tonight!

Thankfully was cheered up by my sister in law who collected my raffle win from paper arts and I have some lovely clear stamps with cakes on and I have the perfect project for them.  Will let you know how I get on with some pics when my camera return.
