Favourite Grown Ups

Hello : )

We have just had a REALLY busy weekend. One of those where you feel you need a weekend to get over the weekend.
Firstly though I'll show you this colourful page that I made about my two fave grown ups.
My little sis and my hubby.
(click to enlarge)

It's for this weeks 'The Studio' challenge. The challenge is to use die cuts this week.
I am partial to a die. I do enjoy using them and more often than not it's to mist these days.
I used a large butterfly to mist over and also a large circle die and scalloped circle die by the title.

I was really excited when my package from Papermaze arrived last week. I love this My Minds Eye 'Lime Twist' line. It's so happy. These are my fave colours to play with lately. Aquas, greens, orange and red. I love those contrasts.

And Papermaze are also now stocking a whole load of Bakers Twine too. I picked up some of the My Minds Eye twine. There are loads of colous to choose from.

So the weekend.
After a long day with Hollie on Friday (she had a french trip so we had to get up at 3.45am to take her to school and collect at 11pm) we were tired to start the weekend.
But we've managed footy training, a day with my sister and her family visiting, I baked a huge amount of cupcakes for a friend's 40th birthday party and we had a great time at the party too.
So busy busy busy.
But no down time now I'm afraid. I have a really busy work week ahead of me which really must start NOW!!
See you later xxx
