Mum Sandra and me went to the kings hall on Thursday (I got the day off) and we had a ball. Although I think I spent the most!!! I got some stamps from Dimension fourth and from Little Claires, two of the punches from Crafty Devils, a bigz sizzix die to make advent calendars and some of the long cutting plates, 2 cricut cartridges even though I haven't got my pink cricut yet (DH ordered it for me for Christmas), an xcut glass mat and two more scrapbook albums and page protectors again from Crafty Devils (I really needed more scrapbook albums!!) I even came home with some money but not much! I meant to take a photo of all my new stash but I put it away before I remembered. Oh I got a bottle of Prima flowers and a set of 3 sizzlets of an angel, a penguin and a reindeer.
Sophs did her first AQE test this morning instead of the 11+. She was nervous but she thinks it went ok, 1 down and 2 to go, at least they will be over for her birthday. We're glad the first ones over. We wandered about Junction 1 while she was in the grammar school and I went into Paper Mill and some papers and 2 templates to make boxes, I think I will use the templates in my next Stampin Up workshop.
I'm going now to make an advent calendar with Sophs.
Bye for now Sam x

We had great fun last night and Mum won the challenge 'Well Done'. I'm sure she will upload her page to her blog, see the link in my followers (she is Kraftykate). We have another challenge for next month and I sat up last night after I came home to finish it. I just have to add a chipboard '2' to it and I will upload it too. Have a great weekend x

I couldn't believe how long it was since I last blogged. Between work and stampin up workshops! I'll have to upload some of my workshop make and takes. I have got a computer now that doesn't takes hours to upload so I'll be able to do it quicker!! I didn't realise broadband was so quick, broadband on the other computer was like dial-up!
Have fun crafting

Gary went up in the Wheel in Belfast and also a layout of Sophs up the coast.
Again I used Stampin Up Stamps and ink, cardstock- Fancy Pants, bazzil. Maya road stamps (date) and Stampin Up square punch.
Well here are my layouts:
This was Halloween last year, Sophs wasn't well but she still was able to watch Hannah Montana's 3D concert and then watched Gary lighting sparklers. The photo of Gary was really spooky has you can see right through him! He moved away and the camera had a slow shutter speed.

Sophs hadn't ridden Joey for a while and she really enjoyed the lesson.
Jacqui, Sophs riding instructor had picked Sophs and 2 other girls form her riding lesson to compete in the British Horse Society Equitation Competition. Sophs was practicng on another horse as she couldn't ride Joey because he doesn't have a bit as his mouth is sore. this is Roly.
Sophie got 3rd in the Comp.
Sophie wanted a change from riding Joey as she is getting a bit to tall for him now!! So Jacqui suggested Pippa, a lovely chestnut pony. Sophie really enjoyed this lesson out in the field doing cross country jumps. She handled Pippa very well. She has since ridden her indoors and wants to ride her now for her lessons.
Well theres todays update! Hopefully I won't leave it so long next time. I'm going to Stephanie's tonight for the Kit Club so if I get it finished I'll upload it tomorrow.

The wax wings didn't came back on New Years Day but have been eating the berries every day since, that many berries left now!
Well, I didn't get any scrapping done over the holidays and I'm back to work tommorrow! It was really great having the two weeks off especially as Sophs was off for two weeks and Gary was off for most of it.
