I belong to a group on Facebook called SMASH*aholics and recently they had a secret sister swap which I took part in. If you have been following my blog you will know that my Dad died at the end of May and that I had to fly down south for his funeral, needless to say things have been a little tight around here as air fair and car hire don’t come cheap. Thanks to the fact that I do some work in a great craft shop I managed to get a parcel together for my SSS (Smash Secret Sister) and had pretty much forgotten all about the swap until this morning that is!
Imagine my surprise this morning when the Postie turned up on the doorstep with this box full of goodies:
Thank You SO much Robin for making my day (and week!) although that really doesn’t do it justice, the amount of goodies in there are wayyyy beyond what I expected, your generosity is quite overwhelming and I was in tears when I opened it.
Thank you again 🙂
My posts will be a little sparse for the next couple of weeks as myself and the boys are away back down to my Mums for our annual holiday.
I got 2 new Smash* books yesterday from Cullen Crafts so I decided that I would use the Green one for Random stuff and the Blue one for my boys. I thought it was about time I did something with the photos I took on Leap Day. The boys and I went geocaching in the morning before school in order to get the souvenir badge on our Geocaching.com page. We got 3 First to Find badges in the process. I then went on to meet up with a bunch of really nice people from the Moray Geocachers group who I had met on Facebook. I just had to bring back some of the cake for the boys to eat as they missed out on the lunch.
My Second layout is a Diamond Jubilee one. I wanted to have something to remember the event although we didn’t really do anything for it here except watch it on the TV. The pictures are ones I found on the internet and printed out just to do a page with.
I have started my “about me” Junk Journal or Smash* book. I made my own book and it has been sat waiting patiently for me to put something in it. I finally got around to completing the first double page. I have several half done pages but this one I think is pretty much finished (unless I decide to add something which is a distinct possibility knowing me lol)
Here is the double page spread:
