It was good seeing all the different things and getting loads of free food, didn't need too buy anything for lunch hee!! Came home with loads of goodies and totally stuffed, perfect day hee!! But ......... yes hubby did make me look at the COWS!! The highland ones were so lovely with their wee babies, all groomed to perfection and their hair sitting better than mine, couldn't be that hard hee!! But he made me go near the other "normal" cows and BULLS. One bull was right next to me like inches away .......... all it did was stretch its legs ............... but scaredy cat me took off to the other side of the room ............ a good 40m!! Oh did hubby laugh at me!!

Good News xxxx

Hi there my gorjuss bloggers,

Well my wee family have not long left after having a wee BBQ. Me, hubby and the poor puppy are totally exhausted but I just had to pop on with my news!!

Drum Roll please ...



I've been picked for a DT post!!! Hee yeah lil old me has been picked to join
Lasting Memories Layout Challenge Blog!!

Here's what our fab team leader
Karen has to say

"Well, I've decided to go on another blogging adventure, just what I need, right?? Sure it is!! I love doing layouts and I know it's hard to find the time to get them done, so I thought this would be fun AND it would help keep us motivated!

I've decided to run it bi-weekly on Sundays, just for the months of July and August as it's a very busy time in our household and I am sure in yours. This will allow time to get those layouts done and hooked up in Mister Linky! Come Sept, once everything is settled, I'll be posting a new challenge every Sunday."

So I hope you will all dig out some of your fab pics and get them printed off and join us in our first Challenge com July 4th!! We're going start with a bit of a bang hee!!

PS Remember my wee Candy

Eggplant Wedding and Sorry xxxx

Hi there lovelies. first let me say sorry for not being around just been so busy here and then I wasn't to well but nothing to worry about! Feeling much better and just trying to get everything done before Biggar Show where I have another table in the craft tent, woo hoo!! Also gotta get all my Wedding stuff finished while doing loads of box orders, its great being so busy hee!!

Lanimers was brill and the floats were stunning, will add some pics soon. I loved the Beating of the Retreat at night like a mini Tattoo. Was the highlight for me!! We spent the day with my in laws and my nephews, was fab day and sun even came out later in the day and we say out the back for nearly the entire day!!

OK on to the wee box. A lovely lady asked me to make this after hubby told her about me!! She wanted it to be ivory and eggplant in colour, but when the card came it was slightly lighter purple than I hoped for. She still loved it so that's all that matters hee!!

Cream and "eggplant"12x12 papers - Hobbycraft

Sliver mirror card - Papermania

Flowers - Mulberry Crafts and handmade

I hope you like it and the colour is OK? Sorry about the blanked parts but it had all the wedding details and I wasn't sure whether it would be OK to show or not?? I so enjoy making these boxes, my fave i think hee!!

Again I'm sorry for not being around and will try and stay on top of things just now!! Kat hunny you would have loved Lanimers this year, so many gorjuss floats, the bands, the stunning wee Queen and then the Tattoo!! Will add pics soon!!

Anniversary Part One xxx

Good Morning lovelies or should that be nearly afternoon?? The morning has just flown in, that's what happens when your doing the ironing I guess!!

So I'm a bad blogger, I said i would be back yesterday but with trying to finish these then post them I had no time before the Marches began! Had all the family here but sadly I never got to walk round due to the dreadful weather! Did paint my Mother-in-Laws toes for Thursday while we waited on it to began tho hee!!

So on to the card. As you can see its "Part One", I've got the second part to bring you once I've uploaded the pics! So its my wee Mummy and her lovely Partner Scott's 3rd Wedding Anniversary on the 12th and both asked me to make a card for the other hee! I thought it was lovely that they both think I can do a card "GOOD" enough for them, so here's my Mums for Scott.

I used some basic orange card stock form my stash and used the yummy Hampstead Papers from Papermaina and also the stamps to add some "paisley patterns". I used some brown ink to give the papers a wee aged look, added my fave letter stickers, punched out flowers and added mulberry flowers as the centres. Everything else is from stash.

Hope you like the deep orange colours with browns and golds? Sort of reminds me of those gorjuss summer nights we sometimes get, especially on holiday hee!! The wee pic is from their Wedding in Cyprus, gorjuss she was my wee Mummy!!

A little fairy xxx

Hi there my lovely bloggers, hope you are all well? Now can anyone tell me where the lovely sun has gone?? It was pouring yesterday, good for the plants tho and rather dull today? Maybe the sun will come back tomorrow??

So i was suppose to be doing some work to Wedding stationary today and getting things sorted for Biggar Show but after a few hours doing the wedding bits I wanted to play hee!! So I just had to use my lovely new stamp Fairies on Tiptoe, its so the lovely Susie's fault! She sent a few images of her and i just had to have her hee!!

I used the lovely stamp from Lili of the Valley used their fab sketch from the Challenge blog too! The image is coloured with my lovely promarkers, well of course it is hee!! My lovely Basic grey Sugar rush papers, some lace from a RAK and everything else from stash. Punch is Martha Stewart. The text is a sticker I think from QVC, not to sure tho.

I so love this wee stamp and already have her coloured in every colour of the rainbow hee! But the papers just finish it off nice, well i think so hee!
Thanks for stopping by and please leave a wee comment do I know you've been!!
