Made Some Cards...
I used CI papers by Samantha Walker for this card. Again, I think I have treated it like a Scrapbooking page. I am pleased with the result...let's hope Hannah likes it.
Finally I made a New Home card. One of my Dad's neighbours has moved, and funnily enough they have moved near to me..well actually it is about 15 minutes away...just the other side of the M1. So I want to keep in touch as they are a lovely family. Rob used to play Rugby for London Irish and has now taken a post in a local school as a Sports teacher, and his wife Frankie is a Photographer...I think I am going to be helping her with a project pretty soon...and hopefully she will let me come on one of her photo shoots to gain some tips.
I think this card was definately inspired by all the fab card makers who's Blogs I have been reading recently...inc the GoGo Greetings Team.
Anyway, we are off at 10.30 to take Georgia to her party, and then at 1pm when it finishes we are driving down to Surrey to see David's parents and help them set up their broadband...Caz x

Layouts from the First Annual MKScrappers Retreat...
So here is the first one I did using Roxie. The picture as I mentioned in my earlier post today was taken at Woburn Safari Park over the August Bank Holiday weekend.
The rest were done using the Love Elsie Toby range. I really love the colours of this range, turquoise is after all one of my favourite colours. Another LO using a picture of Georgia on the beach in Aldeburgh, Suffolk.
OK and finally here is the DLO I did, again with the Toby papers...as the tv ad says..once you pop you just can't stop...so that would make it once you start scrapping, you just can't stop.
I got back a little before 6pm last night, and by the time the car was unloaded and I had put most of the things away I was beat. Lynsey and I took some gorgeous photos of all the ladies that attended...gave them a super mini photo shoot. I think they were all really pleased with what they saw, all I need to do it process them and email them back to them. I think I want to do a mini book with details about each person as a little momento of such a fab weekend.
I will be back later today with some more pictures and pictures of the layouts that I did....I actually managed 6 SLO, and 1 DLO...quite pleased with myself.

I am in the final packing stages for the MKScrappers Weekend Retreat. All stash is packed and I just need to pack my clothes and have a quick vacuum around the downstairs. My new lappy is due this morning, no sign yet. I booked the delivery slot between 7am - midday...so they better get their butts in gear and deliver on time...or else...what I am not sure but it sounded good.
Took delivery of my GoGo Create October kit yesterday, and it is devine....totally lush. For those that subscribe you will not be disappointed....the stamps...yummy, the papers and bits...lush, and the G2Pieces is crammed and gorgeous. So if you don't subscribe...what the hell are you waiting for...click on the ScrapaGoGo link on the right...and get a subscription to the UK's No1 Kit....go on, you know you want to....
I am going to try to take a photo tomorrow for SPS...I have been told the hotel has wireless internet, so I should be able to upload...fingerd crossed.
Ok, till laterz

Georgia always love to hold onto my face as she kisses me....they were tender little "butterfly" kisses (her words not mine).
Getting over excited about the Retreat on Friday and delivery of my new Lappy. Added some more stash to my packed bags...those who know we, know that when it comes to stash I am totally unable to pack "light". I think I have overpackers DNA...lol
Been off this morning to collect one of my new pairs of specs, hopefully the second pair will arrive today so that I can collect them either tonight or tomorrow. New specs always feel strange. I often get the feeling that people are staring at them...or maybe I am just being paranoid. Then again as one of my old bosses used to say..."Just because I am paranoid, doesn't mean they're not out to get me.
Anyway, back to work.

HSMS : Cake & Print
I went to the MFA (Merebrook Friends Association - similar to PTA) AGM last night and have agreed to be a general member and help raise funds for the school to pay for those little extras that the school needs. The MFA subsidise the annual Panto trip, school trips during the year, extra books for the library, equipment for the new outside areas for Year one & two. They do fantastic work, and although I don't have a huge amount of time, I will help where I can. I volunteered to help sell the secondhand uniform outside the school at the end of each term/half term. Although I did warn them that I am not the person to commit to being at the school for 8.30am...as we have trouble getting there at 8.45am LOL.
We are now just three sleeps away from the MKScrappers Weekend Retreat. We are off to Thames for 2.5 days of uninterupted Scrappin'...what could be better. My stash is mostly packed, and childcare is all arranged....roll on Friday.Caz

Peace & Quiet has descended once more...
So only 5 more sleeps before I take off to Thame, Oxford for the MKScrappers Weekend Retreat. My stash is all packed, my printer is ready, and the new laptop will arrive on the Friday before I leave. I am really looking forward to some "me time" as for the last couple of months I have had to take Georgia to the monthly MKScrappers crop, due to David's ridiculous work hours. While she is generally really well behaved when she is there, I am more distracted, and don't get as much done as I would like.

Another US Scrapping Celeb visiting my Blog...
We broke open the Wii this evening, as we needed to make sure that it worked. Obviously as it is a family Christmas present, we will be putting it away until 25th December...yeah right...LOL. Boy do you get a bit warm, not quite breaking a sweat, but definately "glowing". We had a go at Bowling, which is pretty easy. We then progressed to Baseball, now the pitching is easy, but the batting is much more of a challenge. Finally we had a go at the Tennis, again much easier, but I don't know how to make my teamie do anything...he just stands there..LOL. I am glad we got it as it was really fun, something we can all do, in fact Georgia is pretty good at the bowling having got a "Turkey" in the Bowling (three strikes in a row, for those that don't know). Hannah (6)managed the highest score in the Bowling, getting 197, but Georgia got the most strikes in any game, both the youngest got the best scores...it certainly evens things out.
Tomorrow we are off for a day of real Bowling up at the MK Xscape building, followed by lunch. That is if the kids will go to bed. It is 10pm, and Hannah and Georgia are still not asleep. James has just gone up, and I am sure Michael will follow eventually. I bet Hannah & Georgia will not beat everyone in a real game.

Karen Russell "Snapshots of a Good Life" Kit
Just one more day and they are back to school....not long now. I must remember to have my camera ready on Wednesday morning to get some going into Year 1 pictures.
