Up for a Challenge????

Cocoa Daisy is celebrating a year with Christine this month and 5 whole years as a kit club this month. So we have lots going on to celebrate.

Cocoa Daisy is now on Twitter. You can follow us here.

We are now also on Facebook here.

Ronda put a beautiful sketch together this month here for this months sketch/scraplift contest.
I love her sketches.
Here's my page.

I've used bits from our older kits along with some Fancy Pants 'Baby Mine' and a new 'Saint Nick' doilee.

And a couple of older stamps. With scrunched and painted tissue paper. Love that texture.

My second weekly challenge this month is to scrap any kind of celebration.
You can play along here to win a $10 voucher to spend in the online store.
I have chosen Hollie's 12th birthday.

She wanted to make her own cake this year. I left her to it and she made this red velvet cake.
Have I mentioned that she wants to be a desert chef when she's older?

And I used the summer 'Cherry Soda' kit on this page.
So many fun bits and pieces. I love those Lilybee stickers.

It's Friday already.
It feels like it's been a long week.
Seems strange to think that Dad was here at the beginning of the week. Seems so long ago now.
Everything is back to normal.
School routine, work, house organised and eating. We do tend to eat takeways and eat out alot when Dad's over. He misses the English breakfasts, fish and chips, kebabs and we also have lots of other treats. Can you believe I've shed 6lb since the beginning of the week??? I was rather chuffed when I got on the scales this morning. I happended to weigh myself on Monday when he was weighing he checkin bag and was shocked. But I've lost all I put on and a lb extra too. Just by eating how I would usually eat. No crap!! Good homemade grub : )

I got lots of scrapping done yesterday and need to finish some more now too.
I have quite a few things up my sleeve right now which for the time being need to remain there. But I can't wait to tell more soon.

We plan to take the kids swimming after school today and finish at the healthclub after for the £2 special burger and fries in the bar : )

Enjoy your Friday xxx
