Happy Hump Day ...

... it's WEDNESDAY, yeah! Pretty much half way through the working week. Hope you're all having a good one? My week so far has been wonderful! The "sue-week" spotlight over at the "O" is going great guns and I'm having so much fun checking out the lifts in the gallery ... I've found some lifts that I wanna lift!!! I think there should be an official scrap term for a lift of a lift, don't you think? Any suggestion? Feel free to leave a comment!

Sunday Sulk ...

... I know I shouldn't, after all I'm a grown woman and seriously too old to sulk ... but ... even as I type this, I'm pouting like a stubborn little child! And why you ask? Well the answer is simple ... DH!!! We were supposed to visit Westonbirt arboretum today, but despite having discussed it and him agreeing to it last weekend, be bailed on me!!! "I can't be bothered" he said this morning. Today would've been perfect for taking photos too ... we've got late warm summer sunshine, clear blue skies and I just know the foliage will look stunning ... but oh no, he can't be bothered. Arrrrrgggghhhhh!!!!

Hi Honey, I'm Home ...

... the wedding was wonderful! I took 200+ photos and had a fabulous day. In fact, the whole weekend away was lovely. It's always good to meet up with "distant" family & friends and when there's something to celebrate, it makes it all the more special. Here's just one photo of the happy couple ... congratulations Dawn & Gary!!!

OK, so I'm totally exhausted now ... I could do with having a few more days off work just to recover from the weekend, but seeing as that's not gonna happen, I guess I'd better get myself organised for work in the morning.

Hope everyone has had a FAB weekend, wherever you are!!!

Just Popping By ...

... to say that I'm off to the western wilds of Scotland (well Stranraer actually!!!) today for a family wedding this weekend. I'm taking the laptop with me, but I'm not sure if I'll get a connection (little bit remote where I'm staying!), but I'm hoping to get some scrapping done & I'll post again when I'm back.

Hope everyone is having a fun-filled week ... any plans for the weekend yet?

Nothing In Particular ...

... that's what's happened in my life over the past week. Does that make me feel sad? No, not really. I just accept that my life [right now] is a bit same ol', same ol'. This coming week will be a break from the routine though, as Iain & I are heading off to Scotland for a long weekend of visiting family, friends and attending a wedding ... which gives me the perfect excuse to take LOADS of new photos!!!

So what's been happening over at oscraps? Well, four of the loveliest ladies at the forum have been recognised for their contributions and are now all proudly sporting the title of Cheery'O!!! Congrats to Ona, Helen, Linda & Sara ... you ladies do a wonderful job and I know you'll all be fabulous Cheery'O's. I can't wait to see what fun & frolics you come up with.

OK, so just closing off with a LO created for the Designer Spotlight Challenge. I had fun "thinking outside the box" on this one ... it's very different to my usual style, but that's what I really love about the "O" ... it stretches you!!!

Hope you're having [or have had for my friends "down under"] a great weekend!

Monday Madness ...

... I wasn't going to post again until later this evening, but when I saw the MEGA sale that Sue Cummings' has got going on over at oscraps, I just had to let you all know sooner rather than later!!! Check these out ...

Phew, the savings on offer are AMAZING ... and it's not just Sue who's having a sale. Many of the other designers are also slashing prices and have clearance sale! So go on, what are you waiting for?

Where Did The Week Go ...

... seriously, I can't believe it's been a whole week since I last posted! It only seems like a couple of days. This is my first post for the month and already it's the 6th September. The days, weeks and months are just flying by. Before you know it, it'll be Christmas. Ha!

The change in season from summer to autumn has started. Now-a-days, the sun is setting before 8pm, the mornings are distinctly chilly and the leaves are starting to turn to the beautiful golden hues of autumn. I adore autumn. In honour of the change, I've changed the hanging display in my craft room from these summer daisies ...

... to this funky pumpkin and autumn leaves combo. Don't ya just love the expression on the pumpkin's face? Talking of pumpkins, it's not too long 'til Halloween and I'm starting to plan what goodies I'm gonna create this year!

But before I get too carried away with thoughts of Halloween and Christmas, I mustn't forget my daddy's birthday. He's currently travelling round Spain and I'm not able to post him a "traditional" birthday card ... so instead, I made him a birthday LO. Happy Birthday Daddy!

See, you don't hear from me for a whole week, then all-of-a-sudden, you get a whole flood of stuff! Same goes for my digi-scrapping. I've haven't created any LO's all week, so I've had to make up for it today. Here's my entry for the spotlight challenge over at oscraps this week:

OK, I've prattled on enough for one post! I'm off to watch a re-run of the MotoGP. Hope everyone is having a great weekend, wherever you are.
