Yes, I`m Still Here...

Wow, I didn`t realise I hadn`t updated my blog in quite a while...I`ve been very busy with real life (yes, I DO have one LOL). My apologies to my blog friends, I haven`t had time to visit...& I`m still trying to get all the "Stars of Scraps" challenges finished on time (nothing like working to a deadline LOL) as well as doing other bits & pieces.
I received the cutest gift as a surprise a couple of weeks ago from my cyberfriend
CUCHY, whom I swapped ATCs with...

The pendant is just gorgeous, Thank you CUCHY (& the ATC is not bad either LOL)
I also went along to the Paper 2 Page show, & caught up with a few of my cyberfriends there. I got to catch up with Helen, JUDITH, LYN & SANDIE, it was great to see you ladies :) Not so great was the fact that not one shop had TimHoltz stamps, but I did manage to get lots of other goodies, mainly chipboard, foam stamps (at a bargain price!) watercolour paints, a set of DRD stamps (Artist), lots of double-sided tape, DM, paints, some Fancy pants clear stamps & a beautiful ballerina stamp from Eclectic Images, all in all I had a great time...& I`m so glad I took my lunch from home, as I didn`t really fancy what they had there, & they had run out of a few things as well! But the coffee was yum :)

Some LOs I`ve completed for the Mother`s Day Weekend CC over at SBT50

For this chalenge we had to include the quote "A mother is she who can take the place of all others, but whose place no one else can take"...& on reading the quote I tried to think of all the little things we as mothers do, & when I showed the list to DD (expecting her to delete some) she said that I had forgotten one: Personal Bank!!!! Out of the mouths of babes...LOL

This challenge was a colour challenge...& they were colours I don`t normally scrap with, but I really like how it turned out, I hope you do too. Thank you for visiting, & I hope you come back soon, I promise it wont be such a long time between updates LOL TTFN
