Designer Series Paper Blog Hop!

Oh boy! How slack have I been lately? I haven’t blogged since last month’s Blog Hop – bad girl. But there are reasons – birthdays, sick relations & other various commitments.

Welcome to this month’s Blog Hop – you would have arrived from the gorgeous Tina Gillespie’s blog & would have enjoyed seeing her lovely creations I’m sure!

This month’s Blog Hop is based on our lovely Designer Series Paper packs – I have a couple of packs of DSP lying around, but couldn’t find them to play with, but I did manage to find one pack & I have also used the Brights Patterned Paper Pack.

I found this noticeboard on this lovely blog –  Anne Hayward .  One of my lovely Hostesses recently received this as a Thank You gift – on the note, it has special reminders incl. my birthday, upcoming dates for Stamp Club, new catalogue release date & more.

So, So Slack! But I’m Back!

Hi Everybody

Don’t worry I’m still around, just haven’t been inspired to blog anything recently.

Not only have I been sick – recovering from bronchitis – now have the ever-lovely hayfever to tend with. School Holidays finished last week – but I’m finding that it’s hard to function lately. Maybe it’s a combination of getting back into the school routine & adjusting to daylight savings – which also started last Saturday. Aaaarrrrgggghhhhh!

I have a bit to organize for upcoming functions – but in the meantime, please enjoy checking out these projects, I made recently, for a Hostess.

I’ve had a mental block – but I think it’s the the new In Colours, but please excuse me, if they are incorrect.
