Hello : )
Firstly, before I start rambling, I would just like to say a big 'thank you' to everyone who joined in with The Studio Blog Hop this weekend. It's the first blog hop that I've been involved in and I have to say, it's been really fun. So thank you to all of you who have blogged and hopped and commented and joined in : )
The blog hop finishes later today (7th March), so I'll announce the winner of my journaling RAK tomorrow and Amanda will announce the overall winner sometime this week.
If you haven't joined in yet and would like to, the details and links are all on the post below this one.
Staying with The Studio for a moment, this weeks challenge is to scrap your age.
Scrap your age! Come on, don't be shy... scrap a few things about you and what it's like to be you at age...whatever.... :)
So, as I'm turing 36 *gasp* this month, I decided to get some thoughts down on paper.
I've been joining in with the 52weeks photo challenge (taking a self portrait each week) and this was the photo I took of myself laid on my bed last week 1st March.

I used lots of Fancy Pants-Love Birds on this page along with some Teresa Collins.
I keep a couple of vintage handpainted saucers (that I picked up last year in a little store in Eaton, Windsor) on my desk. Any little punches and odd pretty scraps are kept in these and this is what I've pulled out and put onto this page.
The butterfly, flowers, fabric circle and heart were all in the saucer having been used as masks on previous pages.
We had an interesting weekend.
Louis' footy team won their second match, 3-0 : )
I baked Red Velvet Cupcakes, Parmesan Bread and made Baileys Truffles.
We went to friends for dinner which was fun.
They live a couple of miles away, so we walked home with Louis (poor Louis) and a little kitty followed us all the way. We kept thinking, ''she's going to stop now''. But she just kept going. We didn't talk to her or stroke or encourage and had to quickly run into the house when we got home as she came right upto the door.
The next morning she wasn't around thankfully, but yesterday afternoon she was on the back fence.
She was only a kitten and had no collar and we figured she was going to find her way home, so after feeding her we took her to the vets to see if she had been micro chipped, but she hadn't : (
So we took Mrs Spence (Louis named her) back to our friend's where she started following us and let her go.
The vet mentioned if we would keep her on, but I just had in my head that there was a family who had sad kiddies missing their kitty. My friend took a look at her before we let her go and is going to keep an eye out for her. If she see's her looking skinny in a few days, we said we'd go and collect her.
I think the kids really wanted her to stay. I was quite keen until she jumped up on my kitchen work surfaces when we bought her in to box and go to the vets.
So that was our weekend in a nutshell.
I'll be back tomorrow with the announcement of the RAK winner.
Thanks for stopping by xx
