I'm SO Proud!!!

Friday 24th June 12.40pm - This is the time that we finally found out how our son had done in his Law Degree at Birmingham University!!!  OMG he did so well getting a very high 2:1 and being just a whisker away from a 'First'!!!  I was so happy and proud and excited all at once but I managed to contain myself until I had placed the call to his girlfriend's phone as they were both in Barcelona waiting to hear.........  Needless to say he was thrilled as well as all his hard work finally paid off and he will soon be starting a job in London.

A Bit Behind........

It seems like time has run away with me over the past few months and I suddenly realised that I hadn't posted to update you all!!!  Humble apologies for being such a bad blogger - I will try to be better in the future........

After Cleo's lovely Mini Book class at the ArtCards crop in February, Gary and I went off for a fabulous spot of sunshine in the caribbean for a couple of weeks so we didn't have a crop in March.  We did, however, take the opportunity to change the crop dates to the beginning of each month rather than the end so our next crop was Saturday 2nd April where I decided to create my own version of Cosmo Cricket's 'Glubers' and show my ladies how to create some wonderful fabric flowers.  You can see the class layout below which was made up from Basic Grey Two Scoops papers and some American Crafts White Cardstock.  I used the Blue/Green colourway for mine but I also offered the ladies the Pink/Yellow colourway if they preferred.

I hope you like the layout which incorporated a lot of cutting out and lots of 3D work as well as the fabric flowers.
