Last Tuesday Club.......

...for the summer! Yes tonight is our last Tuesday Club for the summer break! We will be back on Tuesday 9th September. This means that my Tuesday Club has now been running for 4.5 years! WOW - we started off as a group of 6-7 in my conservatoire at my old house and we now have an average of 10-12 attend fortnightly at the church hall. Love my Tuesday Club gals, we always have a good laugh!
Today I am sharing a card we made at the Tuesday Club a couple of weeks ago. It's a gatefold card and uses Crumb Cake and Blackberry Bliss and the I Love Lace background stamp.
 Have you seen the new satin ribbon? It is stunning and I am so pleased we have satin ribbon back in our offering again, its gorgeous for tying bows and perfect for wedding stationery.
 I used my faithful Petite Petals stamps and punch along with a new sentiment set called And Many More which I can see being a go to set for sentiments.
Right then thats me done for today! Today Ross finishes school for the summer so tomorrow is lie in day! Today Mr K is off work as he isn't feeling well - let's hope he doesn't get under my feet too much!

Memory Making Monday!

Hello there! Welcome to my blog today! My blog has been a bit unloved for the past 2 days as I had the weekend off after running a lovely party at Jackie's on Friday night! I am almost back to 100% health I am hoping now, so normal service will be full restored! Today we enjoyed a little lie in and then looked after Evan's friend whilst his Mum was at work, then this afternoon I have been school uniform shopping for high school!! Eeekk!!!

Talking of school, today I am sharing a Project Life layout of Evan's Year 6 Leavers party that I helped organise. Please note that I have fuzzed out the faces of other children for privacy reasons, I do hope they don't take away your appreciation of the pages?
 I have used the Happiness Is kit and I am still loving the Project Life life!!!
 Here is Evan with his beloved Mr A who left at the end of May and came back to the party to surprise them all! It was a warm evening and they both look very warm!!! I love these cork style letters that come in the Happiness Is Accessory pack, I have stuck them on top of the page protector here.
 My boy all grown up!
Hope these pages have given you inspiration? I already have next weeks planned for Monday!!

Bon Voyage!

Hello there! Well today is the day! I am sure it will be very very emotional for me and Evan! For 11 years I have stood in the playground at the boys primary school, probably over 2000 days! From September Evan will walk to high school with his brother Ross and then they will walk home together! It's going to be very strange!!!

Last week I made these cards as part of an order for a friend. I am trying to make as many cards to order as I can to help my son Ross with his fund for Kenya. More info HERE. He has to raise £4000 to be able to go and we are on just over £1700 at the moment! Thnak you to Louise for ordering these cards which were for her daughter and her friend who are this year going on expeditions themselves, just like Ross will next year.
 I used the World Map stamp for the background and the Around the World stamp set for the plane and the suitcase and camera. The animals are from Zoo Babies. The papers I used for the bunting were last years All About Me.
I really enjoyed making these as they stretched my creativity!! I'll have to remember the design to make one for Ross next year!
