Pencillines Sketch 198

We are back from the snow and I'm still trying to catch up with my washing! Anyone able to help?? At least the sun has come out and I might get a few things dried.
I've missed creating while we were away and was happy to get straight back into it. This LO is from Pencillines Sketch 198 (which will not go live until tomorrow night)...I love the yellow and green colour combo, such happy and warm tones. Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!

Off to the snow!

We are off to the snow today for week! I'm looking forward to having a break and spending some time with the family on the slopes. The kids are excited and all fired up :) I'll take my iPad though so I can check out all the new CHA releases...can't miss out on those! Here are some more that have caught my eye...
American Crafts City Park

...and Lizzy 'Enchanted'

Jillibean Soup 'Pasta Fagioli'(click on link to see images)

Jenni Bowlin

I'll leave you with a LO about my daughter not eating her fruit or veg. Very frustrating for her mum!

Some CHA sneaks I'm diggin...

Glitz Design looking totally yummy!

First up is Scarlett

Then we have Love Nest

...and look at this mix of aqua and lime green...just divine. Hoopla

I'm not sure how I could possible decide between these collections. I think Glitz is one of the companies that have definitely grown and improved over the last couple years.

Can't wait for Indie Girl to arrive on my door step!

This is looking interesting...a collaboration between Pink Paislee and House of Three.

More Later!

West Side Story

Yesterday we all went to see 'West Side Story', what a fantastic production! It was amazing and exciting to see how much the kids enjoyed it. I thought Max might get bored half way through or he may be to young for this kind of experience, but I had no reason to feel this way. I kept on sneaking little side glances at the kids during the performance, they were totally absorbed in the story, the singing and the dancing. Admittedly we had fantastic seats...3rd row from the front, so we were able to see everything up close. I'll definitely take them again in the future.

Last Sunday we also finished up Romy's birthday invites which turned into a bit of a production. We spent all afternoon together, me stamping and heat embossing and Romy stamping little butterflies and inking the embossed backgrounds. She learned some new things and I enjoyed doing crafty things together! Tim Holtz watch out!

School holidays have now started and some of the activities on our list are ice skating, movies (Eclipse is a must!) and probably some mother and daughter shopping. Max has already organized his social life for the holidays, he needs playmates or he just gets bored. I will enjoy the sleep ins most :)
