Start of a busy week

Here's the weekly challenge layout I did today.   First time I have managed to get it done on a Monday but I have Mia coming to stay this week so needed to get the craft room cleared so she has somewhere to sleep ... oh, and also so I can lock up my best stash if she's sleeping in there!!!

This is our little team at our retreat last November.   We now have three new teamies so will have a full contingent for the next retreat we hope.

Yesterday's work

This is a layout I did at my little "special needs" craft club yesterday.   Lovely papers from Craftz Boutique and perfect for this Caribbean photo.

A few weeks ago now I started a Zumba class for a bit of fun - and it truly IS fun - and is also a lot less energetic than my kick-boxing class.   Decided to get some proper shoes now I know I like it, because my old Reebok trainer boots kept sticking to the floor every time I wanted to swivel round which wasn't a good idea!!  Here's the new lovely shoes.   They don't call me Purple Patty for nothing, eh?

Mia's Memories

Here's what I have been playing with all day yesterday ... once I got cutting out those flowers and butterflies, I just couldn't seem to stop!!

Yesterday's work.

Just to show I do sometimes work at my little craft club, as well as gossip, eat chocolate cake and drink coffee!!

More snow, more layouts!

Here's a layout I have done for a weekly challenge.  You had to use a woman (or women), sewing and an achievement.  Believe me, getting in the water has been my life's greatest achievement!!

Snow and ice means more scrapping for me!

Here's a double layout I have done over the last couple of snowy days.  It is my Mum and Dad's wedding, over 75 years ago, so am pleased with the quality of the photos.   Total Papercraft kit seemed perfect for this one!

Well the snow has to be good for something ... too cold to go out, so stayed indoors crafting and here's a couple of the layouts I did yesterday.  DLO - top one is the lefthand side, bottom is the righthand side and they sort of meet in the middle!

Let it snow!

Have had a very hefty fall of snow overnight.   It started when Maddy and I were coming back from a lovely curry together and shows no sign of melting at all.   Here's my little car, and also my garden ... looking transformed and it is oh, so silent everywhere!
