Pineapple Floats

We love the Pineapple Floats from Aloha Isle in Disney Magic Kingdom.
They are a highlight of the trip for us.

There's nothing we like more than to have one of these in the heat and sit in the shade and watch the magic go by.

The pineapples in this months Cocoa Daisy Kit were just what I needed to scrap these photos.
Some may be scrapping cocktails, for us it's Pineapple Floats.

What's your tipple????

Turning 40 - Project Life

So yes, 40 was my number last month.
I wasn't happy about it, but hey!! What can you do???!!

I decided to make a pocket page about my actual birthday using my April Cocoa Daisy Kit.

I'm planning a LO too right now.
It's one that needs to be in the album I guess.

My Creative Addiction

I have plenty!
Today's is about framing.
I do love to frame my work.

- I print my photos with frames
- I add frames to my LO's
- I frame my work with doodles, sewing, painting, stamping and today is washi tape.

I have a mini tutorial on how to do this (without going wonky... Rachel C.... I am thinking of you!!) over on the Cocoa Daisy blog today.

Happy Sunday all xxx

Life in Progress

That's the name of this LO here.

This photo was taken the week of my 40th birthday.
I'm now the shortest in the family, which to be fair isn't hard when you are 4ft10 : )

I've used this months sketch from the challenge over at Cocoa Daisy which you can find here if you want to play along.

So life right now.
It's crazy, totally crazy.
I'm talking getting up at 6am to come down to the studio to start work and finish around midnight.
Trying to put laundry on, vacuum, clean bathrooms and fix dinners in between.

I'm setting up a new business right now.
You can read a little about it here.
Lollipop Box Club
Ade's taken this week off to build a website for me.
We've never done this before, so it's been an interesting week : )
We are getting there.

Funky Fairies is busy, so that on top is hard going, but good.

Kids are off school. Hollie is working hard on her GCSE's and going in extra to school lots.
We are so proud of her.

Her prom dress arrives this week.
Customs have had their hands on it unfortunately, not only cutting the bag open that it came in so it was hanging out when it arrived with the courier and really dirty, but they cut the insides of it too open. How upsetting!!
A new one is being made, we just hope it arrives in time.

So crazy and stressful.
That's how things are right now.
We will get there : )

Trip Planning Again

Yes, I'm at it again.

This time we are planning Orlando in August 2017 as a big family trip.
Mum and her hubby, my brother and my sister and her family.

We had our first big family meeting at the weekend to start discussing dates etc..
Me being chief planner, I put holiday planning packs together.

I made money saving pots, planning journals and added Minnie Mouse Pencil Cases fully of cute stationery, a Virgin Holidays brochure and an info pack that I put together myself.

Over on Papermaze today I have all the details of how I made these money saving pot.

And these fun planning journals.

I had so much fun making them : )
I do have more photos, but blogger just isn't playing fair today and I'm giving up trying now.
They are on the Papermaze blog though if you click the link above.

Please go and take a peek.
Thanks xx

Here's One I Made Earlier


I was going through my Orlando 2014 album recently and realised that I'd missed this LO that I made last year.

We had a fun afternoon at Epcot wandering in the heat. It was a scorching afternoon. We (Louis and I) took part in Agent P's Adventure. It's really cool. You get these little things that look like phones and you go on a mission answering questions and finding clues. It was so much fun. Louis really enjoyed it.

I'm battling a headache today and I have loads of work on so I'm keeping this short.

Hope you are well xxx
