Bucket of Roses xx

Well hello my lovelies

I know its been almost a month, but what a month its been!
Firstly I had my little "30th" Birthday heee, spoiled rotten with hubby treating me all day! Then The Sunday I had a little girly Tea Party with lots of yummy cake and bubbly for all plus a spot of craft to get them all eh "pulling their hair out" heee! It was such a perfect wee day and I loved it all! I was spoiled by all my family and friends and I cried so much too

Last weekend was spent in London with my Mummy and Granny as part of my birthday and not only that my BIG brother surprised me with turning up too! What a shock and a fab surprise! We had a great time, lots of laughing and fun, LOADS of walking and I'll never get over my Mum and Gran on the Friday night hee! We also enjoyed a trip to the theatre to see "We Will Rock You", sooooooooo amazing! Plus on the Sunday before going home we had a trip to the zoo hee!

Just the best 30th one could ask for! But it didn't end there, I had one more surprise in my email box

little me has joined the SUPER Die'sire Design team! 
You can imagine how excited I was and yes there was more tears hee! Its a new opportunity for me and the perfect excuse to get back into crafting more and more!
