48 tags!!

Yesterday on WOYWW i had a few comments about me doing 48 tags. Let me explain they are not big - 2 1/2 inches - and very basic. They were cut out on the cricut and then stamped with 'for you' and a mini Christmas tree was glued on. They are for a friend who gives out jams and chutneys as gifts and she wanted a small tag to tie around the jar with some string. Here they are The other questions I got was the gentlemen I use as my screen saver, he is called Alexander Skarsgard - Eric in True Blood. He is pure beauty don't ya think? I was never interested in True blood at all but Kelly kept on and on about it and she lent me the 1st 3 books when Joe was in hospital and I was hooked - it's well worth a read and the series is great..BUT it is classed as an 18 for a reason and my hubby actually asked me if I was watching soft porn!!! Anyway just a short post from me today as I am busy making teachers gifts and cards. Will post their gifts tomorrow. Laura x

WOYWW and some winners

Happy Wednesday all are you getting excited for next week? The boys especially Joe can hardly sit down with excitement!! Well here is my workdesk today. The stamp is for some last minute cards which I am going to totally case from Julia as she used the same stamp at the card marathon - hope you don't mind Julia x The rest is just odds and sods the SU inkpad and the green paper with trees cut out were for 48 tags I made for a friend last night. The diary is for bookings. In the right corner the wallet is my Dec daily project. The dog tags are from Project 65 a new soldiers charity for fallen heroes. The black book with hearts on is actually a coupon book which is featuring in my valentines class. That's about it really any questions just shout. Now on to my winners. Sorry I didn't do it last week this have been MANIC here with school plays, fetes, discos, coffee with friends lol. So thank you to all who entered the winners are.....................................Nicky from Stiggys cards and...................................Kelly from Caesar crafts. I was slightly nervous of putting Kelly's name down as many of you know that we are best friends but it was my 4 yr old who pulled the name out of the bowl so it was all done completely fair. Anyway if you liked looking at my desk why not hop on over to and have a nose at all the other desks of crafters today. Laura x

First Love

Good morning everyone hows the weather? It's melted here so everything is back to normal. I did a LO over the weekend of my son and his girlfriend. Now I have to tell you he is 6 and she is 5 but they adore each other. On Saturday after Joe had a tantrum over me deleting a programme and accused me of ruining his life, his dad asked him if his life was really ruined he said no as he still had Ella!!! Now they only see each other about every 6 months as she lives the other side of the country but they have already chosen baby names!! I have been told they are having twins George and Molly and then another baby called Joella. I love it the innocence is so sweet. I have to say this LO really made me realise why I scrapped in the first place to record their memories. I want my boys to remember the conversations they had with their first girlfriends aged 6. I had the urge to scrap in pink which is such a rarity with having 3 boys. I used Basic Grey Bittersweet. Which has to be my favourite BG range. Have a good day and thanks for looking. Laura x

WOYWW, new blog and a giveaway!!!!

Well it's Wednesday again and it's the 1st December!!!!! On my desk today I have the cover of my December daily. I have decided to go rather traditional this year and am using a mixture of papers. I won't be showing the pictures daily but will try and do a weekly post just for the daily. If you would like to join in with woyww please pop on over the queen of Wednesdays Julia who has many links to other crafters desks today. Secondly this is my BIG news. I am now a Stampin Up demonstrator for the Tidworth area. I will not be selling on this blog but have started another blog to sell these quality stamps. Because of this I am having a giveaway. There will be 2 winners and I will be offering 1 each of the paper below, either a versamark inkpad or a Stazon, candy canes and a embossing stencil. There will also be a gift in there handmade by me. All you have to do to enter the giveaway is become a follower of my new blog. I will be closing the draw next Wednesday so good luck. Laura x
