Hoodwinked………..

I’m feeling a bit more myself today, so as Minkey has a friend over to play (also called Lydia, which makes it quite difficult if you actually say “Lydia” as you get a reply in stero), we are off to watch Hoodwinked.

My Lydia has a miff on, cos she wanted to see Pirates of the Caribbean again, but I put my foot down – going to the cinema these days is an expensive trip, so I can’t see the point of seeing exactly the same film you saw last time (that is of course, that it isn’t Pride and Prejudice, or anything containing Chris Pratt, Colin Firth of David Tennant!).

We let the other Lydia have the deciding vote, and she wanted Hoodwinked, so that is what we will see.

Just about to have fish and chips for lunch, then head off. I will report on the worthiness of this bit of cgi later.

Retro Chic Chick……………

layout that I’ve almost finished. It’s quite lump with the 3-d flowers, so it is really not the best scan. The light has got in, the cardstock is really a buttery yellow in colour.

Papers are by Paper Loft, with Cactus Pink Wildflower stamps, embossed with Forever in Blue Jeans and Zesty Lemon Pie embossing powder. There are also pearlidoodles in the top corner, which happen to match really well with the lemon EP.

Stamps are upper and lowercase Sunny by Hero Arts.

The Angel Kissess Mini flower on the file folder, has also got a wee dot of lemon pearlidoodle in the centre of it.

Apparently, I was 9, and I remember this outfit so clearly – bright yellow with a navy colour and trousers. My hair was quite long, and I love the bobbles holding up my pigtails.

Here’s the stamped example of Forever in Blue Jeans……


embossing powder that should be hot footing it here by courier.

The craft slaves will be ordering the headers and bags for the UK STampers giveaways, and Drummer has been instructed to pack them this weekend.

There are also labels being organised (jars already in store) to merchandise the SG-me! range too.

Very excited about this new release, and I can’t remember if I said yesterday that we are going to try to add to the colours on a regular basis.

On a personal note, I’m flaring really badly at the moment – I’ve a beast of a cold, and it took me a full 20 minutes to make it down the stairs.

What have "Forever in Blue Jeans" and ………..

“Zesty Lemon” got in common? They’re embossing powders, and are both scrummy, that’s what, and will be very shortly the first releases in the SG-me! range at the Galaxy.

The Denim has a slight texture to it, and really does look like Denim over a larger area (especially used on textured cardstock), and Zesty is the move fabulous zingy lemon colour you have ever seen. They emboss beautifully, and I’m very excited as you can imagine.

I will get the slave to stitch my “Retro Chic Chick” layout together later this evening, (I actually did a layout this weekend, which is unheard of usually) as I’ve used both of the colours with Cactus Pink stamps on it.

I have the most horrid cold, and am seriously thinking of bailing from next weekend’s course in Stonehouse. I’m sure there would be somebody willing to step into the breach, Kirsty has a wait list I believe. I’m going to ring her today.

I’m back, after having had a fantastic time…..

at the Scrapping Angels retreat in Bury St Edmunds. Thank you so much to Anna, Annie and her crew that put it all together – well done you!!

Also a big thank you to Emily Falconbridge for such a great class, it was a bit off my track of doing things, but I really enjoyed it. In fact, I’m doing another one of her classes next week too.

Have to admit that I’m whacked though, as the trip back took over an hour longer than it should have done cos of an accident on the M11 – ce le vie.

As usual, short of time, so gotta go.

I’m off to Bury St Edmunds for Scrapping Angels…

Retreat. I’m looking forward to it, but also aprehensive, as I really don’t crop/craft away from home either lightly or easily.

I’m looking forward to seeing my friend Anna, who runs it, poor sweetie has had so much sadness recently, as she lost her Daddy last week, and it will be lovely to give her a huge.

I’m sitting surrounded by my things ready for the off, as well as some prizes for the raffle.

I need to jump in the shower and head off for the 2+ hour drive. So laters……….

To my Daughter’s school I would like to pass….

on a hearfelt thank you, but I can’t, personally I would love to strangle the lot of them!

They provided her with one of those Xmasy type catalogues at the end of School yesterday, and I’ve had to spend her every waking moment since defending why I will not spend £30….£70…£150 now on the useless tat that is contained within the hallowed pages of said piece of poo.

I am sooooooooo mad with them, why do they do this – is it revenge of parents, or just plain thoughlessness.

Answers on a postcard please – or a comment here.

Treated myself to a new album yesterday…..

the Scissor Sisters, and it’s fab, I DO FEEL LIKE DANCING – how could anybody not with their music.

Minkey also gained out of it ‘cos Tesco were doing a special on it, and I got £2.97 off the price, if I bought another chart CD or DVD. I bought her ‘The Wild’.

We watched it last night after homework, and it was really quite funny.

Galaxy plan was in the post when I got home last night, which means that we are just that bit closer.

Received the first entry for the UK ST……….

Number 2 Challenge “I’m a UK STamper give me a header” last night. Phew – seriously thought nobody would bother. Fingers crossed for entries.

I haven’t said very much about the Galaxy Invasion recently, but things are going quite well, and we are still hopeful that all be sorted out by, if not month end, then really quickly after that. There really don’t seem to be any more dangling ends that need to be tied in view.

Parental Control took a crashing fall yesterday, and I really think she was suffering from shock last night, will have to see how she is today to make a decision about whether I need to stay home and nurse her.

Apart from that, it’s grey, cold and rainy here, what’s it like where you are?

Ever fancied making a star book………..

well thanks to Linda from UK STamper’s hard work the instructions, complete with pictures, has now been loaded on the Galaxy’s Learn Section. It’s inspired me to give it a go, as starbooks have scared me up until now.

Many, many, thanks, Linda for your help.
