Taking a Sneak in to July

My July Cocoa Daisy Kit has arrived.

I do love it when I answer the door to my postie holding my big CD box.
I've been getting the kit for goodness knows how many years and the novelty has never worn off.

The reveal for this kit is June 28th. 9PM EST.
Until then I can share these sneaks with you.


And if planners are your thing, here are a sneak of the July planner kits.

So far I have made 2 LO's with this kit.
Here are a couple of sneaks until the 28th.
I can't wait to create some more.

Go Rainbow

I set a challenge this week at Cocoa Daisy to use as many bright colours as you can.
I love bright happy pages.
I picked my way through 3 Cocoa Daisy Kits and made this.

I've documented the next big trip that we are planning.

Some fun Projects

I've been keeping really busy with my new business Lollipop Box Club.

Have you seen the blog yet?
It's full of really cool inspiration, projects, DIY's, recipes, crafts. Everything that I LOVE!!!
That's what I wanted this business to be all about.
If you haven't seen it yet, take a look here.

Here's a little peek at what I've been up to...

I revamped some old Ikea wooden drawers.
 I showed the artwork in my downstairs loo!!

I made this frame.

And a scrapbook page too.

And there's loads more too.
Grab yourself a cuppa and take a look here.

Bye Bye School

So, Hollie finally says goodbye to school.

Her official last day was the 22nd May, but she's been popping in for exams since.
This Friday is her final exam. Where have the years gone???

I documented her last day at school using my June Cocoa Daisy Kit with lots of the DITL Kit and the stamps too.
There is a post here on Cocoa Daisy to see how the Stamps have been used this month.

She's going on to study English Language, Biology, Religious Studies and Art.
I'm so proud of her.

Sunshine Scrapping

I love using happy and colourful papers.
These Belle BLVD papers are the perfect sunny papers (despite being Easter/Spring) themed.
Sometimes, you've just got to look beyond the theme.

I have a blog post on Papermaze here with lots of little tips.
I had so much fun making this.

Time for a Catch Up!!

I don't know where the days are going lately.
Everything seems to be on fast forward.
I though it was time for a good ol' catch up.

So, latest news...
My next Lollipop Box Club Kit has gone on sale today.
You can read all about it here.

Last month went so well and this month has gotten off to a great start too.
I'm loving making these kits. It's just so much fun and I have such a wonderful response from those who have received them too.

Next news, the new Cocoa Daisy Kit has gone on sale today.
You can view the kit here.
This was my favourite LO that I made with the kit this month.

I love those colours.

Other news, the kids have just had a week off school. I worked all week so nothing exciting happened. Hollie studied lots and Louis saw friends.
We did take a trip out to see the new Tomorrowland movie at the cinema and had a trip to the mall at Basingstoke for a little shopping and dinner at Wagamamas.

And on the 22nd May, Hollie left school.

This was her last day. She's got going in for a few exams over the next couple of weeks now.
So it's been a busy couple of weeks.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a lovely Monday wherever you are xxx
