Pretty Paper Party - Stamping

It has been a while but this is a layout I created in response to the stamping prompt at Pretty Paper Party. I really enjoyed looking through my stamps to find the perfect text and images to go with these photos, and it was great to deliberately try and find ones I hadn't used before!

Busy Busy Busy!

I can't believe how quickly ten days have passed! I knew I would be busy after half term but things have been even mroe manic than expected.

As a result I haven't had any time to work on my Pretty Paper Party Prompts but am looking forward to a scrapping session at my mum's with her and two of her friends tomorrow night.

I haven't been compeltely bereft of scrapping though, oh no! At the weekend we took ourselves up to the Midlands, stopping at Kenilworth Castle on the Saturday, and spending a fantastic 8 hours (!!) at the NEC for the Hobbycrafts and Crafts for Christmas show.

We stayed overnight at a B&B in Solihull to enable us to have an early start on the Sunday morning. Dad and Carl dropped us off in the disabled parking area, and with mum settled into her wheelchair we arrived inside just after the opening time of 9.30. Our early start meant we were able to get booked on 3 make and takes: glass painting, Sizzix and Wow embossing.

We had a wonderful time, and it was even better because Carl and my dad went happily off to the National Motorcycle Museum for the day, meaning no-one to curb our spending!

We didn't leave the show until after 5pm, and we still hadn't managed to see everything. Finally arriving home after 9 O'Clock, we certainly slept well that night :D
