Remember Me????

It's been a while **blush**
Thanks for sticking with me.
I am so snowed under with work right now and struggling to fit anything else in right now.
I finally created last week when my Cocoa Daisy kit arrived.

Here's the proof.

This latest kit is so summery and pretty. I love the colours.
The full reveal is tonight where you can see our full galleries and all the goodness of this fun kit.


I taught a really fun class at Sparkle Dreams on Saturday in Swindon. I started the day with a sore throat that then went in to a full blown cold by the evening. I'd forgotten how lousy colds make you feel. I ache so much and feel so tired despite sleeping most of the weekend : (
Back in to work today though, no time to feel sorry for myself.

I hope you had a good weekend.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Lots of love xxx

Cocoa Daisy Inspiration Day & Blog Hp

Hi! Welcome to my stop on the Cocoa Daisy Day of Inspiration Blog Hop!

You should have come from Kim’s blog.
 If you’re starting here, be sure to go to the Cocoa Daisy blog and check out the rest of the team’s bags!
Here’s my Maya Road hip bag

I used loads of Maya Mists on my bag and applied Jenni Bowlin acrylic paint dabbers from the Daisy Boutique with my fingers. Waiting for each colour to dry before starting another.
I added a big bow (which is the May Arts Ribbon from the April Kit) and some brads too. A couple of pins on the front are very special as they are from my fellow teamie Sharmaine who gave them to me whilst we were in LA.

 And because we ended up having more fun than we thought, we’d like to give a

chance to alter along with the Design Team. Hip bags will be available in the store

come the June kit. Pick up your own to alter and we’ll have the DT vote on a winning

bag. More details will follow!

I’m going to be giving away this Cocoa Daisy bundle.
I've been collecting bits and pieces from my kits and have so many bits unused.  Here are a whole load of stickers, brad packs, embellishment packs, Teresa Collins Sticker Notes, MME Stickers, Wooden & Chipboard embellishments, tags, doilees, glassine envelopes and some exclusive Cocoa Daisy Stamps too. All brand new. I've still got some more kits to go through so will be adding more to this bundle.
To win these goodies, please leave a comment on my blog and follow me if you don't already and if you LIKE the Cocoa Daisy Facebook page and let me know, I’ll enter you a second time in my drawing! I’ll be closing the drawing on Monday the 6th of May at 8 AM EST.  One lucky winner will be randomly drawn. I’ll announce the winner here later that week.
Good luck!

I hope you’ve been inspired by my bag!

A Day in the Life - May

I am loving all this sunshine and blue sky business lately.
I hope it stays around for a while.

I've been keeping up with Project Life.
Go Me!

I got the Cocoa Daisy 'A Day in the Life Kit' this month.
It's soooo good and jam packed with goodies. Exclusive Simple Stories/Cocoa Daisy cards, word stickers, embellishments and exclusive Cocoa Daisy Stamps too.

Here's what I made.

I love these stamps!!
And some bits added from our travels this week.

The Day in the Life kits have reduced postage and no added postage at all when bought with a Cocoa Daisy Main kit by the end of the 3rd each month.

I've put together a blog post on Cocoa Daisy today showing the kit and how we on the DT used it this month. Come and see here.

Thanks xxx
